AC­TION BLOCK

Air Gunner - - Know Your Air Rifle -

This is the catch-all name for the block that usu­ally houses the air­gun’s main in­ter­nal com­po­nents - fir­ing valve, cock­ing/load­ing mech­a­nism and trig­ger sys­tem - plus it holds the breech end of the bar­rel and usu­ally the magazine, reg­u­la­tor (if fit­ted) and the re­ceiver for the air reser­voir. The ri­fle’s scope mount­ing rail or grooves are also usu­ally sited on top of the ac­tion block.
