Target shooting with air guns has been a hobby of mine for a few years now.
I find it is one of the most relaxing hobbies I have, so I do quite a bit. I
do testing and on all facets of each Airgun I buy, doing so with the attitude
that if it does not pass my set of criteria, I just send it back to where it
came from. That's just me, not all people are this picky. This is
one of the reasons I felt compelled to write this review on the pellet rifle
that is now the jewel of my air rifle collection: the Tech Force 99. The TF
99 is one of the airguns in my collection that gets 10 in just about every category.
So I'll give my review of this beautiful air rifle in index form for easy reading:
1. Looks: Beautiful. I'm not totally sure of how
many shades of wood coloring it comes in, but mine is a sweet deep dark
(but not too dark) color of wood. It gives the rifle a very
classy look, a very European look. If one did not know this rifle was
Chinese, they would be inclined to think it was made In Germany or England.
2. Power: 10+++. Man this thing has killer
power, excuse the terminology but I have the .22 cal. version, and one
better take care and use all safety measures when using this rifle,
because it packs a serious bang!!
3. Size: Perfect for a hefty adult air rifle. Not
too big, but far from a carbine in size.
4. Weight: Between 7-8 pounds, it's no light-weight, but
I have arthritis in my back and I have no problems so I would think it would
be fine for just about anyone except for children. It is definitely put
together like a smooth tank. Really solid!!
5. Cocking Effort: Takes some strength but not anywhere
near what other brands of air rifles of equal power do, because of it's special
made spring. So, considering its size and power, it's pretty easy to cock.
6. Ease Of Use: This is an interesting question.
Tech Force did a great job in the engineering of this pellet rifle. All
controls right after cocking are right there next to the trigger. It's
an awesome feature. Once you cock the rifle, you never have to move your
trigger hand. The lever release is right in front of the trigger and the release
of the safety lock is right behind the trigger. So you never lose sight
of your target and it's extremely convenient.
In closing, this is the best air rifle in my collection. The biggest
plus for this rifle is the price. It can easily hang with the $300-$400
European rifles at less than half the price.
