The Ruger Explorer youth air rifle is a spring piston single stroke break barrel air rifle with an all-weather composite black stock. This Ruger Air Rifle's stock is ambidextrous (for both left- and right-handers) and has a thumbhole stock and vented cheek piece for comfort and ease of use. The Explorer rifle shoots pellets out of its rifled barrel at 495 fps. Accuracy is a breeze with its fiber optic sights. The Explorer also comes with an automatic safety and rubber recoil pad. It is designed as a youth rifle with a shorter overall length (37.125"), lighter frame (4.45 lbs.), and an added anti-slam trigger-barrel safety system.
