The Invention of the Air Gun


The Invention of the Air Gun

The air gun was invented in France about 1768. These early guns were operated by compressing the air in a cylinder fastened to the barrel of the gun and then releasing the air behind the bullet. This scheme was so hard to work that the air gun did not become popular until the spring type of gun was made in this country along in the '70's.

The first air rifles were made by H. M. Quackenbush of Herkimer, New York, and these were of the spring type; that is, the spring was compressed by means of a lever and when the trigger was pulled the plunger pushes forward and compressed the air. To Charles F. Lefever of Plymouth, Mich., is due the high development of the air rifles on the market today.
