Today I have something really unusual for you: Unusual because I don’t normally test air rifles and pistols with steel BBs. My specialty tends to be pistols and rifles that shoot pellets. However, every now and then I look outside the box and discover products that I simply want to test. That’s now the case.
Frequent readers of my website have already noticed that I have been testing products from Crosman lately. That’s simply because many of them offer an added value and a lot of fun for shooters. Let’s see if Crosman R1 offers the same.
Trailscout is an affordable rifle to have fun with. Especially the trigger contributes significantly to the good shooting result. The CO2 rifle is light and handy. Diana Trailscout pierces simultaneously three 12-gram CO2 capsules. This provides an output of about 100 – 110 shots. A nice feature of Diana Trailscout is that you can adjust the piercer to match the capsule’s length. These have often different sizes. Therefore, 12-gram CO2 capsules from different manufacturers can also be used.
Fun, fun. fun! That’s all I can say. I must have run through two dozen magazines before I started writing down my thoughts on the rifle and filming the review. The rifle simply awakens the child in me which I deliberately keep alive. It’s an incredibly great change from the highly focused shooting I usually do with my other guns. And that’s how the shooting sport has to be: Diverse and fun.
