By gluing on magnum rifle primers!
Pretty awesome upgrade for the low price of primers, if all you have for a gun is an air rifle.
I wonder if you need to shoot at a hard surface to set it off, or if small varmints would cause the primer to ignite as well? :grin: I know some primers are pretty sensitive.
I wish I would have known about this upgrade as a kid back in my daisy air rifle days.
A YouTube demonstration:
The pellet used in the video is a .22 pellet, with the open end of the primer facing forward.
I don’t know if “regular” .177 caliber pellets would work as well. The small rifle magnum primers may be too big. I don’t reload, but I’m sure smaller primers are available if needed.
