The new issue of Airgun Shooter magazine is out now and we’re scoping out the best optics for your gun!
The British Shooting Show took place at its new, bigger venue at the NEC in Birmingham for the first time this year – and we take a look at some of the new products unveiled by manufacturers including Air Arms, Daystate, Diana, FX, Lee-Enfield, Sig Sauer, Sterling and Umarex.
Spring may be here, but the nights will be staying dark for a little while longer, and Mat Manning’s been making good use of the cover of darkness to go after some bunnies with night vision kit.
Mat’s been using one particular NV device – the ATN X-Sight II HD – for two years now, and he reports back on his experiences with this optic after giving it some heavy field use.
Telescopic sights end up being fitted to most air rifles these days, and some pistols too, so Mike Morton’s run through the features of the modern scope to help people understand the terminology and features so they can make a more informed choice when they buy their next optic.
Our resident target shooter Andy McLachlan has been offering some tips and insight about choosing a scope for springer HFT, Field Target rangefinding skills and tuning a springer for competition.
While most PCPs use a turn-bolt or sidelever to cycle the action, Mike’s been looking at an unusual rifle from Ukraine. The multi-shot Zbroia Hortitsia uses a straight-pull action, making for some super-fast shooting.
All this is capped off with our Airgun Answers section, where we tackle your shooting-related problems by offering some pointers on how to work out your dominant eye, why point of impact can sometimes shift when you change magnification and the all-time classic question – which calibre is best for hunting.
