AirRifles - Sub 12ft lbs16Joules > Gas Ram

Spring and gas ram guns are virtually the same, except in their internal workings. Spring guns contain a spring (you don't say!) which is compressed by the action of breaking the gun's barrel at the pivot point (usually just before the end of the fore end hand grip). This also enables you to slip a pellet into the breech at the same time, making break barrel guns quick and easy to load and use, as long as you are strong enough to compress the spring. When you slip the trigger, the spring propels the piston down the air chamber, compressing the air to very high pressures before releasing it into the breech behind the pellet. As the spring expands, a lubricant on it (usually molybdenum paste) sprays onto the wall of the air chamber. When this is compressed, it diesels, adding a little more power. A gas ram gun works in exactly the same way, but you compress an inert gas inside a sealed cylinder rather than a spring. A gas ram is smoother than a spring, more consistent and less "twangy". It does recoil, but in a totally different manner to a spring gun. (No twangy extension and no relatively uncontrolled dieseling)
