Ruger Black Hawk Air Rifle Combo
Great rifle, scores low on price...
Look for this rifle at Canadian Tire ONLY when it's on sale. Even at 50% off, you can price match it online. Of course, there are then shipping fees, and at Canadian Tire - you can have it right away!
Other than the excessive price tag, this is a great air rifle...it's actually a Ruger! The stock looks just like my 10/22 powder burner, only larger.
Extremely accurate, like most springers, although a bit on the heavy side for younger shooters. It's actually heavier than a Ruger 22LR!
I bought mine at Canadian Tire, ON SALE, and have had no problems with it whatsoever.
I have added a barrel-mounted bipod (around $30 online# and it turns this rifle into a nice little sniper!
Have fun, shoot safely...and, personally, I avoid shooting little critters. This rifle will dispatch a squirrel from 20 yards no problem, if you really must. But I prefer a live trap, paint their tail orange #to see if they come back!#, and then release it. You must go at LEAST 10 miles away! Eventually, the marker paint wears off.
But Visi-colour targets are much more rewarding, as you can see exactly where you hit, and can calibrate your scope.
Also, the Ruger scope is surprisingly good as well. It's 3/8" dovetail mount, like many 22 rifles, and so you could use it with of those as well, which I have done.
Then I put a laser sight on it, also barrel mount, just for fun #from another firearm)...the built-in sights are great as well, and help you calibrate the laser for those "never miss" moments if you ARE going after a small pest!
CT doesn't sell barrel-mounted accessories, but they should

Best air gun I have ever had
I purchased my Ruger Black Hawk Air rifle about a week ago. Since then I have shot off about half of the 500 pack of pellets that i got with it. My brother and I find it a very accurate and powerful air gun and we have had a few hours now of target shoot and love the fun times. I had a .177 air riffle years ago and liked it but it was no comparison to this one. It took a few rounds to get the scope set up but after we did we could get our shots in about a one inch cluster. Havenâ€™t used it on any live game yet but I really only got the gun for fun target shoots. I am now looking at maybe getting a hand gun for further target fun. I would totally recommend this gun to any one that asked me about purchasing an air rifle.

This is my first air rifle in 20 Years. All I can say is excellent. With no scope from the standing position I am getting a 1" grouping at 75 ft.

This is a fabulous air gun. Very accurate, once the scope is zeroed in. The weight (8lbs) makes free hand shooting a challenge. The length (46'') makes the gun very large, but gives it amazing effective range. It's durable and very sleek. I especially like the automatic safety feature. Overall this is a great gun for target shooting and with the right pellets, small game hunting.

This is a decent gun for the price. Great for beginners or for somebody who likes to shoot stuff. The scope is great once you zero it in. I shoot cans at 100 feet easily, as for hunting little animals like birds, i don't really know if it would kill them because I've never shot one before but i think with the right pellet you should be able to kill a small animal at 100 feet.
