I have owned this pro-elite (.22) for about 10 years. I did try using it with a .177 barrel and that did give a flatter trojectory and faster f.p.s. But for me the .22 was the better combo for hunting. I have experienced this air gun in both cal's and in various stages of tune and myself I would say that it is just as accurate in either. Over the last 2 years though, I have been hunting with a Falcon Raptor 8 shot rifle that is an absolute joy to shoot, and over 5-6 hours of rambling about... (read more)

This is a beautiful break barrel magnum rifle, that Air Arms decided to quit producing several years ago. I don't know when they dropped this model, but wished the still made it. It's an awesome gun, and maybe one of the finest break barrel Magnum production springers ever to have been sold in the US. The stock design fits me perfectly and the gun is heavy but so well balanced that one doesn't seem to notice. I love the short bull barrel which has built in baffles which reduce the shot noise...

Hi, to everyone that owns one, due to a money problem i had to sell mine and it was ther worst thing i've ever do, i so regret it now, i've been looking for one for about 3 three weeks and can't find one. If anyone of you or your friends have one and are prepared to sell it, i will definitely buy it of you as longs as it's .22 and .22 in good condition. I'm prepared to travel and pay up to £250 for a mint one with or without scope. My email address is email@example.com. Please someone... (read more)

The Air Arms Pro-Elite air rifle feels like real quality as soon as you pick it up. Heavy, weighs about 10.5lbs with scope and mount. I am the third owner of this particular gun and I do not see myself getting rid of it except to buy another in better condition, maybe. I have owned a Beeman R1 for about 20 years and I thought that was amazing. Well I believe the Pro Elite does it better. Slickness of operation, solid function, power, and accuracy. I am still floored by the guns uncanny... (read more)

I purchased my .22 Pro Elite as a secondhand unit. As received, the mainspring was twangy and I had some trouble getting tight groups. However, the power was good. I sent it to a tuner who refined or 'un-did' several changes, some of which were apparently added by a previous amateur tuner, and installed Maccari internals. According to his Chrony, the gun went from a tired 19fpe to a crisp 21fpe. I've had it back for a week and I'm thoroughly pleased. I had one windless morning on the... (read more)

Had one for about a year just sold it 2 weeks ago.
I rang up gun shops to see if they would be interested in buying it and was told that the accuracy was poor because it was originally designed for an FAC rated spring. They then changed that and fitted it with a standard spring which is much litter and apparently hits the end of the chamber before the pellets leaves the barrel. So as it is recoiling the pellet is still in the barrel.I was amazed at this i have had trouble hitting anything... (read more)

I recently was convinced by BWassung bot's review and advice to seek the Air Arms Pro-Elite rifle out.
I got lucky and found one at straight shooters.
This rifle is incredible!
I was able to set it up(bushnell trophy scope)and zero it in easily, which wasn't the case with my Gamo 1250 hunter.
Using the heavy @ss beeman 22cal. kodiac pellets, I hit a squirrel with a body shot and, well for that squirrel it wasn't nice, exit wound large, force knocked him out of the tree, I was about... (read more)

I'm writing a review since i heard that Air Arms will no longer be making this Pro-Elite Air rifle.
Well, i've had one for 3 years, and its been the best break-barrel i can think of, yes even better than the HW-90. I'm just going to list technical information. Keep in mind these numbers are after a home tune, and proper beak-in of 1,000 shots. All numbers were achieved with Crosman Premiers (.22). Before the tune, it was about 35 fps slower, but accuracy was the same.
Velocity-850... (read more)

The Air Arms Pro Elite (.22 cal)....wow....I've owned an RWS 52, RX1 and RWS 45 and this powerful Spring Piston Air Rifle is by and far the highest quality magnum air rifle I've ever owned.
Awesome high quality stock, beautiful deep blue finish, an actual METAL trigger and trigger guard, a nice bull barrel (a stainless steel insert is the actual barrel with a blued thicker "oversert" and baffling system that gives it that bull barreled "look" and keeps noise level down.
Many advertised... (read more)

I recently traded in my crosman ratcatcher for an air arms pro elite .22. I've had many air rifles in my short life but this one is definately the best. i started airgun shooting at 8 years old using a chinese b2 rifle. It did the job, sort of. I picked up the pro elite second hand for £200. got a nikko stirling 4 by 40 scope and mounts for £35. Knowing the right people can by valuable. I zeroed the gun at 40 yards using air arms diabolo hunter pellets. An excellent pellet for the gun. By... (read more)

For the past 18 months my Air Arms Pro Elite air rifle has banged out pellets at a consistent 21ft/lb, putting 5-shot groups into 1.5" at 50 yards (it can probably do better, but I sure can't!).
The engineering and quality of finish on this gun is excellent. Breech lockup is solid as a rock, and the trigger (once set to your preferences) is brilliant! In fact I'd go as far to say it rates alongside the Rekord trigger in the Weihrauch HW range.
Stock dimensions are comfortable. They need to... (read more)

I purchased an Air Arms Pro-Elite .22 air rifle for one of my hunting rigs. I previously used a TX-200HC .22 and a R-1 Carbine .20 for the outfits I used. Wanting something with a little more power I chose the Pro-elite .22. I scoped the rifle with a Leupold EFR 6.5-20X40 mounted to the PE using a BKL 260A mount. After approx. 500 rounds I did some chronograph testing. Using a Oehler 35P I clocked the PE with Gamo Hunter(15.54gr), Beeman FTS(14.94gr), and Benjamin/Sheriadan Diabolo(same as... (read more)
