    Thanks for being patient ... why does a .177 suffer more recoil than a .22 (spring guns) all other things being equal.
    Is this the same for pistols? If so, would not the flatter trajectory of the 177 be wiped out by the increased recoil? say in a Weihrauch hw45 pistol?
    Anyone tried these in both calibres? views on accuracy?
    thanks all.

    You need more air to get a .177 pellet to the same power as a .22 pellet.
    So more air needs a stronger spring=more recoil.
    But not that much more.
    Some gun makers have the same spring but do other things to raise power.

    If the recoil is a big problem then you can always consider a tuning kit or Theoben gas ram system - these can reduce the recoil by quite a lot (especially the latter).

    Sorry that doesn't really answer your question but it's already been said ...

    James.
