Mike Niksch needed an air rifle. Instead of modifying one to suit his needs he designed and built one from the ground up. He called it the Thomas (Mike’s middle name). In a few short years the Thomas bench rest and field target rifles have broken records and won state and national championships.
Mike own and operates Thomas Air and is obsessed with making the most accurate air rifles and air pistols that can be made.
Each rifle and pistol is built to order by Mike and he tests and insures that rifle that leaves his shop meets his very high expectations of quality and accuracy. Mike used a customer’s Thomas to win the 2016 US Field Target Open Championship.
If you are interested in discussing the purchase of a rifle or have questions, Mike’s contact information is on is website,
Mike has graciously agreed to support the Field Target Podcast in 2017.
