In this article, we will review the book and its contents, and see why it is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the modern pneumatic airgun.


What is a pneumatic airgun?




A pneumatic airgun is a type of airgun that uses compressed air or gas to propel a projectile, such as a pellet or a BB. Unlike spring-piston or CO2 airguns, pneumatic airguns do not require any mechanical action to compress the air. Instead, they use a pre-charged air cylinder or a pump to store the air under pressure.


Pneumatic airguns can be divided into two categories: single-stroke and multi-stroke. Single-stroke pneumatic airguns require only one pump of the lever or handle to fill the air chamber, while multi-stroke pneumatic airguns require multiple pumps to achieve the desired pressure. Single-stroke pneumatic airguns are usually more powerful and consistent than multi-stroke pneumatic airguns, but they are also more expensive and heavier.


What does the book cover?




The book The Modern Pneumatic Airgun By H M Buckley covers everything you need to know about building your own single-stroke pneumatic airgun. It is divided into three sections:


  • Section 1: Pre Manufacture: This section introduces the history and development of the contemporary pneumatic airgun, as well as the safety and legal aspects of using an airgun in the United Kingdom. It also explains how the pneumatic airgun works, and provides detailed drawings of the method of operation.



  • Section 2: Manufacture: This section guides you through the home workshop manufacture of the pneumatic airgun, from choosing the materials and tools, to assembling and finishing the rifle. It covers topics such as O-rings and airguns, trigger mechanism, barrel support bracket, sound moderator, gunmakers engraving marks, and more. It also includes a schedule of parts and drawings for each component and assembly.



  • Section 3: Post Manufacture: This section shows you how to regulate the power of your pneumatic airgun, test its performance and accuracy, choose a telescopic sight for your rifle, care and maintain your rifle, and troubleshoot any problems. It also provides a glossary of owner built rifles, a concise airgun bibliography, a concise gunsmithing and engineering bibliography, and useful addresses and telephone numbers.



Why is the book useful?




The book The Modern Pneumatic Airgun By H M Buckley is useful for several reasons:


  • It provides an in-depth resource on how airguns are made and function, enabling you to make and alter your own rifles.



  • It offers precision dimensionally coordinated drawings supported by a full and complete description of manufacturing sequences, ensuring your success through meticulous explanations and attention to detail.



  • It gives you cross-referenced schedules and specifications with photographs of the rifle being made at important stages, helping you visualize the process and avoid mistakes.



  • It teaches you about airguns and workshop practice, enhancing your skills and knowledge in engineering and shooting.



  • It demonstrates a proven rifle design that is effective, reliable, accurate, and powerful.



  • It provides a wealth of additional airgun related information to give you a complete picture of using the airgun.



  • It includes a foreword by airgun expert Gerald Cardew, who praises the book as "a masterpiece".



How can you get the book?




If you want to get your own copy of The Modern Pneumatic Airgun By H M Buckley, you can order it directly from the publisher at 30.00 plus 4.50 to cover postage and packing (9.50 to Aus/ NZ and USA).
