It’s the results of our massive airgun questionnaire and thanks to all who took part in to. Our Fieldtester surveys prompted 3,500 reponses, which has given us some of the most comprehensive information about who owns what and what they think of out that the shooting industry has ever seen.

10% of the survey results were from airgunners, every single one of them shoots pests and some enjoy plinking, too. First thing we noticed when we went through the results: it is clear that the break barrel’s glory days are over. Nearly everyone lists a PCP as their favourite airgun.

We have a separate survey for break-barrel airguns, which also includes your favourite airgun pellets. Click here for that.

So, which makes of PCP airguns do you buy? Three companies have more than half the market. The biggest is Air Arms, with nearly a quarter of the market by itself, followed by BSA and in third place Weihrauch.
