Is a .17 caliber air rifle the same thing as a .177 air rifle?

Answer

.17 caliber air rifle is not the same thing as a .177 air rifle. In the years that I have been shooting I have never seen or heard of an air rifle coming in a .17 caliber. They do however come in .20, .22 and even larger. Some calibers are standards sold by the manufacturers, but there are others that can be custom made by a smith.
