BROCOCK ANNOUNCES ALL-NEW “XR” SERIES
British airgunmaker introduces powerful, sidelever-operated compact PCPs for 2020 and it will be launched at the British Shooting Show 2020.
New for 2020 is the Brocock XR series – an all-new range of compact, sidelever-operated PCPs that’s set to replace Brocock’s current line of Bantam, Commander HR and Concept-Lite models. Besides its new sidelever system, the XR line-up also brings a host of technical improvements, increasing power output, shot-count and reliability. The firing system on all XRs has also been refined using the very latest CNC manufacturing processes that deliver ultra-fine tolerances.
Brocock’s integrated XR series is designed to be modular, accepting parts and fittings across the range, and all rifles are compatible with ‘AR’ styled part upgrades and accessories.
The XR and Sniper XR models incorporate Brocock’s innovative semi-bullpup design that vastly improves gun handling and rifle ‘pointability’, while the Commander XR and Concept XR versions feature an adjustable telescopic stock that allows pull-length adjustability for different shooting scenarios, shooting stances or tailored gunfit. In fact, the XR series ranks among the shortest of air rifles on the market, with the Mini XR measuring just 820 mm from its adjustable butt to its silenced, shrouded muzzle.
All but the standard XR incorporate a highly-advanced regulator system, developed in partnership with Dutch regulator specialists, Huma-Air, who only Brocock and sister company, Daystate, have rights to fit as standard. When combined with the XR’s latest hammer design, the technologically advanced ‘reg’ precisely meters air release to totally eradicate any power curve and ensure minimal shot-to-shot deviation as the rifle cycles through its usable air charge – both important factors in improving downrange accuracy. The Huma-Air regulator also returns an even higher number of shots per fill-up – a big bonus for those who opt for an XR model in high-power format.
All models in the XR series feature an on-the-fly power adjuster, removable 10-shot magazine, choked barrel with integral shrouded silencer and match-feel adjustable trigger –they can be configured with a variety of bottle, stock and power ‘Magnum’ options across three calibres (.177/4.5 mm, .22/5.5 mm and .25/6.35 mm).
With production now underway, the full XR range will be available in gun shops by February 2020, with retail prices starting from £899.
