For part 2 of our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, we’ll be including items in the $15-$25USD range. At this price, the options begin to open up a bit, however we’ll be focusing on one of my favorite accessories for the airgun enthusiast.
The Gift Guide is made up mostly of items I’ve used or reviewed at some point. There are a few exceptions, where I’ve added an item based on the suggestion of a respected fellow airgunner or two. – Tony@AirgunsARP
Gifts between $15 and $25
What better gift for that special airgunner than one of our own AirgunsARP.com caps! It makes you both look and shoot better*.

Air Venturi Rat on a Stick, Rat on the Run, Rocking Rat Targets
Knockdown targets are a great choice when it comes to plinking and target practice with a .177 or .22 airgun. There are a number of choices out there for targets, however when it comes to quality and ease of maintenance, the Air Venturi line of Rat targets, the Rat on the Run, Rat on a Stick and Rocking Rat, are a great value for their price. Where other brands use spot welds, the AV Rat series use bolts and nuts, making it easy to repair and maintain them as targets.
|The Crosman Zombie Resettable knock down target is a good alternative, especially if you are interested in making your own targets. They design of the zombie head faceplate makes it very easy to create custom target faceplates for this knockdown target, and prior to the release of the Air Venturi Rat series, this was my favorite target.|
Caldwell Steady Rest NXT
One of the better budget gun rests on the market, the Caldwell Ready Rest NXT is a basic yet highly regarded gun rests on the market today. It has a modular design that can be broken down and used as a pistol rest, and it can accommodate a variety of gun types, including bullpups and rifles with pistol grips.
UTG Universal Dovetail to Picatinny/Weaver Rail Adaptor
There are a few different companies out there that make similar dovetail to Picatinny/Weaver adapters out there, so you have options. That said, I always try and have a spare one of these in my supply kit. The quality is great, but more importantly, the cantilever design of the mount coupled with the adjustable recoil stop pins allow you the flexibility to use the scope mount in either direction as well as adjust for barrel drop or to get a few extra MOA of elevation out of your setup.
