    Chinese Shanghai Model 62 Pellet Rifle

    I've been looking for a Chinese Military TS45 pellet rifle as a companion to my SKS collection. I haven't found one yet but did find this Shanghai Model 62 in .177 cal. Cheap ar $12.50 US. But have no clue what I'll do with it.

    I had a Polish rifle almost identical to this. Fun little rifle for plinking in the basement.

    They are crap. Bought one from Harbor Freight years ago because it was cheap and would be fun to plink. Can't hit anything with it. Mounted a scope on it and it's like a five inch group at 20 feet. Not sure it's this exact same model but very similar.

    I think the ones at Harbor Freight were the Lever-type, I bought one too. The accuracy wasn't so bad on the one I had, but the seals sucked and it eventually they deteriorated. I don't even remember what I did with it. You got me curious so I went out and shot it. My Leupold range finder told me I was at 10 yards (30 feet/9.144 meters) after I figured out where the rifle was hitting, I was able to shoot this 1 3/8" group.

    I has the sight set as low as they could go and at 10 yards it was hitting 2 1/2" to 4" low. I was aiming at the black dot on the top. I used the Shoot-N-C target because my eyesight sucks at that distance and I wanted to see where I was hitting.

    There is a reason they are cheap. However, I think it good value for money for very inexpensive shooting.

    Horrible trigger, so-so sights, not very accurate but at about two meters it is excellent for teaching kids to shoot. They just have to see holes in a newspaper size target to be happy. Keeps them busy as long as you can cock and load. Teach them safety at the same time.

    I have a lever action one that still does good service, sorted out some problem doves with it yeas ago.

    Dug mine out after posting and it is the lever type under the barrel. Was coated in heavy dust so I haven't touched in in a long while. Should get rid of it, it's taking up space in that corner where I never look.

    Hard to believe they aren't accurate at all, I had one when I was young and we took sparrows regularly with it. Picked tomatoes for the local farmers to earn the $16 CDN to buy one at Canadianicon Tire at the time. That was about 1970/71.

    Call them airguns. There are very powerful airguns used to take big game.

    I agree totally! This ones's a Crosman 760 (less than $20) and my 4 year old Grandson learning to shoot. He's a senior in Engineering now at OSU. We still shoot together, but not as often as I would like. - Bob

    I had one that looked very similar to this but is was a Baikal, made in the USSR. I no longer have it (misplaced during one of many moves). I bought it in 1988 or 89 at Canadianicon tire. It wasn't a tack driver but good enough to hit soup cans from 15 to 20 yards
