Morini 162 EI Air Pistol
The pistols we use are the same basic pistols that are used in the Olymmpic Games although Olympic shooters will spend a lot of time 'tuning' their triggers and ensuring the grip fits their hand perfectly.

The most commonly used pistols in competitions  today are listed below with the top two most seen being Morini & Steyr;

Morini 162EI 
Steyr LP10 
Fienwerkbau P44
Walther LP400 
Pardini K12    

All these pistols are capable of shooting one hole groups at 10 metres although the challenge for the shooter is to achieve this. These pistil can cost between $2,500 and $3,000 new however, second-hand pistols can be found for around $1,500 to $2,000 depending on age and condition.

Our club has a number of Morini 162's available to use on club nights for those members who do not own their own.

In addition to a pistol you will need good quality pellets specifically for air pistol. These are relatively cheap and a tin of 500 will cost you around $15. These can be purchased at the club.
