So, what’s an air stripper? This intriguing science is all about altering the air flow behind the pellet. As the pellet exits the barrel, it enters a small cone, which strips away turbulent air, leaving it to continue on its way, in as calm a state as possible. In practise, the cone fractionally alters the harmonics of the barrel too; so, in theory, it can be ‘tuned’ to be more accurate. Fascinating science indeed, but Rowan Engineering’s Air Strippers look good too, and their refined design is now available for a variety of airgun makes, including Air Arms, Daystate, Weihrauch, Steyr, and BSA.
Specifications will vary slightly for different makes, and the stripper on show here has a ½ x 20 UNF, so threads straight onto a barrel or adaptor. They can be supplied in black anodised, or plain aluminium. The internal cone has 8mm of forward/ backwards adjustment, and can be specified in aluminium, black or brass, to contrast with the body colour. Beautifully made to Rowan’s usual standard, these are the perfect accessory for the airgun enthusiast and available in .177 and .22”
