BB guns are a great way to get in some trigger time. There are so many variations and options on the market we thought it would be a good idea to pull together 10 of the top choices for 2022. These are in no particular order, and they stretch across multiple styles and features. Let’s get started.
10 – Avanti 499
Hailed as the most accurate BB gun in the world, the Daisy Avanti 499 is a single shot, lever action, spring-powered airgun. It’s a single-shot muzzleloader used across hundreds of youth shooting programs to teach basic gun safety, handling, and shooting techniques. It ships with match-grade peep sights, perfect for competition and general shooting practice.
9 – Legends Cowboy
The wild west comes alive again with the Umarex Legends Cowboy Action Rifle. The rifle uses real “shells” loaded with BBs, which are then inserted into the side slot and down the tube just like the real deal. The lever-action cycles the shells into the breech and then ejects them. The Umarex Legends Cowboy Action Rifle brings a new level of realism to the table.
8 – Springfield M1
If historically accurate replica airguns get you excited, then you will love the Springfield M1 BB Rifle. With a really snappy blowback action, realistic weight, and military-style open sighs, this full-sized BB rifle has it all. It’s available in a synthetic faux wood stock and traditional real wood stock. It’s an accurate, fun-to-shoot, great CO2 BB Rifle.
7 – Daisy Adult Red Ryder
It all starts with Daisy, right? Who said that it ever has to end? The Adult Red Ryder is a great way to spend the afternoon, and now it’s sized for all the big kids too! Keeping the tradition of fun and affordability, the Adult Red Ryder is a great companion for folks looking to teach their youngsters shooting the regular Red Ryder the basics of gun safety and proper handling techniques. It all starts with Daisy, and now it keeps right on going.
6 – Crosman DPMS
AR Variants are a ton of fun to take into the backyard and the range. The Crosman DPMS provides shooters with the realistic weight and feel of the AR platform, complete with semi-automatic and fully-automatic select fire options. In addition, the Crosman DPM is available in various configurations and color schemes. It’s time to find your perfect combo and get to shooting.
5 – Daisy 880
With decades of history under its belt, the Daisy 880 is still a fan favorite. This multi-pump dual ammo airgun allows shooters to shoot inexpensive steel BBs for basic target shooting and lead pellets for serious accuracy. The multi-pump power plant allows shooters the ability to vary the power output. Lightweight, accurate, and fun to shoot, the Daisy 880 most certainly deserves a place among our top ten BB guns for 2022
4 – Colt SAA
The gun that leveled the playing field for the wild west is available in a very realistic replica CO2 revolver. The Colt Single Action Army comes in all shapes and sizes and is one of our most popular BB guns. It uses realistic shells that drop into the cylinder exactly as you’d load the real deal. It’s a single-action revolver with a great feel and an even better trigger.
3 – Smith & Wesson M29
Smith & Wesson wants to make your day with their replica of the iconic 44 Magnum. This beautiful replica of one of the most iconic handguns in Americana Movie History shoots as good as it looks. With 6 realistic shells that load into the swing-out cylinder, you get the same weight and feel as the actual firearm. It’s a great BB Revolver for anyone’s collection.
2 – Umarex Legends M1A1
The M1A1 is a replica of the .45 sub-machine gun that delivered serious firepower to the men in the trenches. It has the weight and feel of the real firearm. The drop-free stick magazine holds the CO2 and BBs. It has the option of select fire via the switches on the side. Shooters can go from semi-automatic to fully automatic with just a flip of a switch. Not only do you get a very high fire rate, but you also get some great accuracy. It’s another great airgun for our Top 10 List.
1 – Beretta M92A1
Last but certainly not least is the Beretta M92A1 Select Fire BB Pistol. Where most pistols limit you to one shot for each pull of the trigger, the Beretta M92A1 comes complete with the “more fun” switch that takes you from semi-automatic to full-automatic. There’s a level of satisfaction that comes from dumping an entire mag full auto into the target. It’s hard to find the words to describe it. You need to experience it. Fortunately, you can!
