The BAM XS-B3 is a really cheap air rifle loosely patterned after the AK.

    that really is the most disgusting looking thing ive ever seen,i'd like to take it by the barrel and wrap it over a wall.
    i think its better to buy a rimfire,air rifles,apart from maybe f.a.c (firearms certificate)rated airguns may have their place but after years away from airguns i recently had a go with various springers and p.c.p's(pre charged pneumatic) i must say they really do feel like toys they have absolutely appalling trajectories,even 177 @ 12 ft pounds feels like a pop gun,and a 12ft pound 22 air rifle to quote somebody famous it has the trajectory of a pig jumping over a fence and the range is just pathetic 35-40 yards seems to be the outer limit although there are some wild stories of people hunting out to 60-70 yards with a 12ft pound airguns i would say that is cruel and irresponsible to your quarry.if you live in the u.k check the internet for a local shooting club either write to them or email/phone them and join and 6 months later you"ll have yourself a license.our politicians want to make it hard for us to shoot,by discouraging us.it isn't as hard as you think to get a license just find a club near you and enquire about joining if they are full or dont seem receptive then sod them and try another.most clubs are reasonably friendly and happy to advise you
