Stoeger is one of many companies under the Benelli family of firearm manufacturers. Stoeger is an industry leader in their many lines, from hunting shotguns to air rifles. The Stoeger X10 combo .177 caliber is an excellent European style air rifle with easy and reliable spring piston action. The black synthetic stock is impervious to the elements and the adjustable fiber optic front sight is highly visible in low light. For those who prefer to shoot with a scope or who may have a hard time seeing iron sights, the Stoeger X10 comes with a 4x32 air rifle scope and rings specifically designed for use with an air rifle. Due to the recoil of air rifles, a standard rifle scope may be damaged if shot on an air rifle. The Stoeger X10 .177 comes with a rubber butt pad for added comfor and control, and the trigger breaks clean for better accuracy.
