NRA Gun of the Week: Air Venturi Wing Shot II (PCP airgun) Shotgun

posted on March 18, 2017

In a class all its own, the Air Venturi Wing Shot II Shotgun delivers versatility unseen from other platforms of its type. This pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) airgun has the capability of firing pre-formed shot charges used for clays shooting or bird hunting, as well as big-game hunting with .50-cal. projectiles. Loaded from the muzzle, the gun also fires a proprietary bolt similar to those used for crossbows. Our testing proved its ability to maintain consistent accuracy using an array of projectiles, and does so without the need for gunpowder. Charge the onboard, 244cc reservoir with high pressure air and enjoy. Now, due to its large-bore diameter, shot strings are limited before the shooter must top off from either a portable air cylinder or specialized hand pump. The gun does offer low- and high-power settings.
