The 2019 British Shooting Show was just over a month ago but big plans are already being put in place for next year’s event.
However, just in case you missed any of the items on show at the UK’s premier gun show, here is a round up of items that caught our eye while we were browsing the stands.
A tricked-out version of the PCP was used by Claudio Flores of Patagonia Airguns to win the 2018 Extreme Benchrest title, and the new gun features those world-beating refinements. Visitors were also able to see the new laminate stock for the Bantam HR. Made by Minelli, the elegant new handle completely transforms the gun’s looks.
Bevin Lesueur of Umarex, pictured, said the lightweight bullpup combines affordability with a raft of innovative features.
BSA R-10 TH
Produced to mark 10 years of production of the iconic PCP, the new edition features refinements including an elegant Minelli thumbhole stock and a bigger bottle for a significantly increased shot capacity.
Weihrauch HW 100 BP
The stubby HW 100 BP, shown here by Chris Horner, squeezes the best features of the super-successful HW 100 series into a very small package indeed.
FX Wildcat Mk2
The latest incarnation is equipped with a Smooth Twist X barrel and an eight-shot magazine.
It combines the company’s tried and tested night vision technology and one-touch video recording with a conventional telescopic sight.
Airmax 30 SF Compact & Hawke Endurance
The new Endurance OLED range has all the features of the original and the same ease of use, but with a clearly illuminated display for use in low-light conditions.
Visitors to the Hawke stand also got to see the new Airmax 30 Compact scopes. The latest addition to the Airmax range, these ultra-compact scopes are just 227mm long and weigh 589g, but are still packed with features including side parallax, an illuminated glass-etched reticle and a 30mm mono-tube chassis.
Aimed at the more affordable end of the market, the diminutive PCP features a beech thumbhole stock, 10-shot magazine, side-bolt action, integral Whisper shroud, an on-board pressure gauge and a cold hammer-forged barrel.
The buddy-bottle gun boasts a high shot capacity and great value for money.
