Brocock XL G6Last month I did a walk around this .22 cal. Brocock and “kicked the tires”.  In this installment I’ll share some observations from my shooting sessions.

First, I really liked the “soft touch” coating over the wood stock.  It was comfortable to the touch and gave such positive grip it made this little lightweight carbine even more pleasant to shoot.  No special instructions on care for the coating came with the airgun, but my guess is it could be cleaned with mild soap and water should it be needed.

It would be preferable to have an on-board pressure gauge; however, Brocock’s focus is on providing top value in quality and price for a British made airgun.  With import duties and costs of making this precision airgun, it must have been considered expendable to keep the price down.  This PCP will take a full 200 bar charge, but without a gauge, I never went more than 5 magazines (holding 6 pellets) without recharging the cylinder.  For the U.S. market it is set up with the Foster quick connect fill valve, but the instruction sheet described filling with a male probe.  Additionally, as these are export guns, they avoid the U.K. 12 ft-lbs. power laws and these G6s are rated up to 23 ft-lbs.  Loading was easy and pellets are retained by a rubber ‘O’ ring around the circumference of the magazine.  A large boss protrusion on the rear face and a smaller spring loaded ball on the front face prevent incorrect insertion of the magazine.  No misfires of any kind were experienced, but pay attention during shooting sessions as there is no mechanism preventing double-loading of pellets.  Trigger pull averaged a very nice 3.3 pounds right-out-of-the-box and both pull weight and length of pull is adjustable.

I used H&N Barracuda Hunter pellets (18.21gr.) and Excite Spikes (16gr.) and it digested them with excellent accuracy when I did my part.  The Nikon PROSTAFF Target EFR scope was a great pairing with the G6 and worked well without tweaking, other than adjusting the objective bell for parallax distance.  Testament to the prep my friends at Airguns of Arizona do prior to shipping products to their customers.  (www.airgunsofarizona.com)  Accompanying the G6 was a picture of the test target showing a ragged hole created by 5 shots from 23 yards.  Also included was a chronograph tape indicating an average velocity of 755fps for 6 shots using JSB Heavy pellets.  From a standing position I was consistently hitting the 1/2” kill zone of a Remington reactive crow target at 16 yards right-out-of-the-box.  The Huggett suppressor worked like a charm and this little gem could probably be used in a suburban setting without raising the ire of the neighbors if the user was so inclined (and it was legal to do so…)

Of course, no one airgun will meet all of a shooter’s criteria (I don’t know why my wife doesn’t understand this, and my need to own so many) and so here are a couple of items that I feel are necessary to mention.  Already discussed was the lack of an on-board pressure gauge.  Not a showstopper for many shooters, just nice to have; especially if you are taking the G6 afield.  I found the indexing of the rotary magazine to be a little sticky and had to play with it sometimes to get the next chamber aligned with the bolt.  It lessened during my testing so was probably just a break-in issue.  At this price point I also would like to see an extra 6 round rotary magazine included with the G6.  No manual safety – again, a cost saving measure I’m sure — but I missed not having one, partly because of the warning in the instructions that the gun can be discharged while the bolt is locked back in the open position.  The instructions indicate this would not necessarily harm the gun but there is a good chance the breech seal could be blown down the barrel.  That being the case, it is just another caution for the shooter to keep your wits about you every time you take it out shooting – good advice whenever handling any lead slinging device!

All-in-all, the G6 was a pleasure to shoot; very accurate with that Nikon scope.  A of A retails this carbine for $739.00 and Brocock warrantees them for 2 years.  Many thanks to them for lending this great little shooter to me — good things really do come in small packages.

Every so often a company comes along with a product that makes a huge wave in the airgun industry, and when you have been around as long as we have, you get a sense for it when you first see it!

FX Wildcat .22 with optional FX Scope

FX Wildcat .22 with optional FX Scope

A couple years back, FX Airguns was pressured into the bullpup market by the shouting mob of American customers! Prior to that, FX had no intentions of building a bullpup because they already had some extremely short and compact models like the Verminator Mk2 and the Ranchero Carbine. So FX took to their best design at the time, the Royale 400, and began to design a bullpup around this platform. What they came up with was the Bobcat, which was met with mixed opinions and over the years has been a popular model! It was and IS a great rifle, but never was a true bullpup. Even FX’s owner, Fredrik Axelsson, called the Bobcat a semi-pup from day one. The Bobcat was a quick response to a need, while FX continued to grow and develop a true Bullpup design.

In the fall of 2014, we had a small team from AOA visiting the FX factory in Sweden, and we looked over the design that would eventually become the FX Wildcat. We knew from that moment how great it would be and gave our input into the cosmetics and features needed for the US. FX went to work and by March of 2015 at IWA in Germany they had produced a final prototype that took the show by storm. The rifle had amazing features, compact and slim design, and what shocked everyone was how FX was able to produce this model at a much lower price point than everyone expected. Those in attendance left the show buzzing about the new Wildcat, and we all waited for production to prove out just how the rifle really would perform.

So today, we are going to run through the results and see if the new Wildcat lives up to all the hype that everyone has been hearing! We’ll start with the outward specifications:

The Wildcat in .22 caliber weighs in at just 6.1 pounds and measures only 29.9 inches long! The barrel is 19.7 inches, and is concealed inside a full length shroud that not only looks cool, but it reduces the noise down to a quiet “puff”. The most obvious feature to a bullpup fan is the location of the side lever cocking arm. It is right where it should be, up in the middle of the action near where your hand is already positioned when shooting. This makes for easier use when cocking and loading. The magazine is dead simple to load as well, and holds 8 pellets in a rotary wheel. The air tube is 230cc, which will allow the Wildcat to give a full count of shots expected from a proper length rifle. How many shots? Lets find out:

Wildcat .22 shot string with pellets taken straight out of the tin.

As you can see in the chart above, this amazing little bullpup is giving a full 75 shots at an average of 894 fps with a JSB Exact Heavy .22 pellet weighing 18.1 grains. And it does this with an extreme spread of less than 20 feet per second across the whole fill. That is over 32 ft/lbs on average for 75 shots! So does the Wildcat .22 perform? You can decide for yourself! We have seen popular full length rifles that cannot get half as many shots as this Wildcat, and nowhere near the consistency like this regulated airgun is showing. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the fact that the FX Wildcat is fully regulated, and that is a standard feature, not an upgrade!

Ok, so it looks great on paper…but how does it shoot…on paper? Before we look at that, we should say that the Wildcat sports the proven FX Smooth Twist barrel, so accuracy will likely match everything else in the FX range. Let’s go straight for the real test…50 yards:

WildcatTarget2

5 Shots @ 50 Yards

WildcatTarget1

5 Shots @ 50 Yards

As you can see from these quick groups shot at 50 yards, the FX Wildcat .22 holds up in the accuracy department as well! On the day for testing, the Arizona heat was already breaking over 100 degrees and there was a bit of a gusting breeze. So, these groups could likely improve with better conditions and a cooler head behind the scope! But even as shown here, the rifle is performing exceptionally well. When you consider that the Wildcat as a bullpup was never intended to be locked down on a bench, it is exceptional for a hunting rifle with design around being compact and discreet. These groups are more than acceptable for any hunting application, and the rifle will do its job in the field.

So, as far as bullpups are concerned, FX has a real winner of a design in this new Wildcat. It will quickly become a favorite amongst shooters. Both for its features like shot count and accuracy, and for its lower price point in the category of high quality bullpups.

Until next time,

Get out and shoot!

It’s pretty easy to make the case that Larry Piercy has the coolest job in the world.

Larry-1

Larry working as Range Master at the 2014 EBR.

We’ll get to the details of this innovative venture in just a little while, but first a little background about Piercy. “As a kid, I had a Daisy 1894 lookalike. I’ve known Robert Buchanan, president of AoA, for thirty years, but I didn’t really know about adult precision airguns until he and I got involved starting the Airgunners of Arizona field target club.”

He adds, “I started field target with a Slavia 631, a seven-foot-pound gun. I think I dropped only four targets in that first match. After that, I bought a Beeman R1 in .20 caliber and did better. Larry has been heavily involved with airguns and field target ever since and is currently president of the Airgunners of Arizona field target club.”

Piercy is also an NRA-certified firearms instructor and a Certified Range Officer for the United States Practical Shooting Association.

Early in 2015, Piercy retired from Boeing after 26 and a half years, and within a month Robert Buchanan phoned. He wanted to discuss an idea he had been thinking about for some time. The next day Larry and Robert met for breakfast to discuss their visions for the project, and within a couple of days, Piercy was on the AoA team.

So here are the details on “the coolest job in the world”: as this is being written, within a few days Larry will begin touring the country in a custom van that is tricked out as a mobile showroom for Airguns of Arizona and Precision Airgun Distribution, which is the distribution arm of AoA.

Larry-Van-2

“This project has four goals,” Larry says. “The primary goal is to establish additional dealers in the Precision Airgun Distribution network. The van will be a mobile showcase for adult precision airguns. We’ll have 10 long guns – everything from an HW30 to an Air Wolf – and 2-3 pistols. We’ll take the latest airguns to them, let them see them, touch them, and, if there are the facilities, shoot them.

The second goal is to help existing dealerships to be more successful. A third goal will be to interface with the airgunning public, which means that Piercy and the van will be visiting the National Field Target Championships, the National Airgun Benchrest Championships, and similar events. The van is equipped with an Omega electric compressor and a Daystate gas-powered compressor for refilling tanks and a workbench “in case somebody blows an o-ring.”

 

Van-Rear

A fourth goal will be to do some outreach to provide some relief for people in need, and Piercy’s son-in-law, who has a master’s degree in counseling, will be a resource for that effort.

The plan is for Piercy to go out on the road for up to three weeks, then spend a week or two at home, then repeat the process. “When I’m home, I’ll be visiting local ranges in the Phoenix area. Already there is one range planning to build an airgun facility, and I can help with supervision as well as shooting and safety instruction.”

Robert Buchanan will accompany Piercy on the first trip, a 7-10-day sweep through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Piercy says, “I’m finding that in some areas, they know that airgunning is really growing in popularity, but firearms dealers are somewhat reticent to get involved. It should be an interesting trip.”

Buchanan adds, “We’re going to learn a lot.”

After they return, it should be very interesting to find out what they have learned.

Til next time, aim true and shoot straight.

We would like to start today by wishing you all a safe and relaxing Memorial Day!

When AirForce Airguns improved their trigger/safety design recently, they altered it enough to make our old-style AirForce SuperSear incapable of fitting. But, the newly designed trigger still lacked the refinement that people wanted, and we received enough feedback to warrant the redevelopment of the design and the custom parts engineer was put to task to work his magic…enter the AirForce Super Sear 2!

You can download the installation instructions HERE to get a general idea of “HOW” to install, but we wanted to do a quick write-up to give our experience as to “WHY” to install.

Taking a new-style Condor SS out of the box, we tested the trigger and found it to be nice, but a tad heavy. More over, the feel was good but not great. In testing the trigger on our digital scale, we found the 1st stage to take-up at 1 pound and 12 ounces before stopping at the 2nd stage wall. With just a slight amount of creep, the trigger broke at 2 pounds and 14 ounces. While safe and predictable, we understand where most PCP shooters would find this to be too heavy. And since it is not adjustable, you are basically stuck with this design. We try not to recommend any customizations which compromise safety, so simply replacing the springs with lighter parts is not good advise. So we opened up the trigger assembly to swap out the sear with the new Super Sear 2.

Following the detailed steps in the guide, we removed the pistol grip, fore end, trigger shoe and safety shoe to expose the trigger assembly.

AFSS2-1

Removing the front screw under the block allows access to the springs and sears.

AFSS2-2

Carefully drifting the Sear Pin and removing the factory sear, it is simply a matter of installing the new sear in the same orientation and reversing the steps from here. It is recommended to add light lubrication at this stage.

AFSS2-3

As you can see, the design is different between the factory sear and the Super Sear 2.

AFSS2-4

When assembling, the instructions say to use the spring provided in the kit in place of the striker latch spring and to remove the trigger return spring because it is “unneeded and unused”. Our tests proved this statement to be true, as the trigger functioned properly without this spring and was reliable in our testing.

AFSS2-5

As you work in reverse, make sure the roll pin is inserted the correct direction, and when finished, you should only have 3 parts left over, 2 springs and the original sear.

AFSS2-6

And by now, you are anxiously waiting for the big reveal! WHY go through all this work?

Following the installation, the trigger results were much, much better! The first stage take-up tested at 3 ounces. And the trigger breaks clean and crisp at 8.8 ounces! So, is it worth the time and small price tag? That is up to you to decide! Meanwhile, we will be out shooting this Condor SS with its much improved Custom SuperSear 2 trigger!

AFSS2-7

New Brocock Contour G6

New Brocock Contour G6

In this first of two parts I’m going to introduce you to this new little carbine by doing a “walk-around” and “kick the tires” so to speak.  Next installment, I’ll get into the “test drive”.

Brocock is a British manufacturer that has been in business since 1989.  They were known for their high quality, realistic revolvers that fired a pellet from a pressurized, self-contained cartridge.  They were basically a niche player in the British airgun scene and not well known or widely available outside of that country.  Their guns were so well made and resembled the real firearms so closely that some of their products were being converted into firearms.  To put a stop to that, Brocock airguns and cartridges were outlawed in Great Britain in 2004.  A company almost put out of business by the government because of a few rotten apples… could never happen in the U.S. right?  Luckily, Brocock had also been making PCP guns and were able to stay afloat.  Last year the Diana group out of Germany purchased Brocock.  Diana also owns Daystate now so this move provides Brocock with access to share designs, technology and processes as well as expanding their market exposure outside of Great Britain.

My sample arrived in a long cardboard box securely inside another shipping box.  I knew the G6 was a carbine and wondered what extra things might be accompanying the airgun in that large box.  Alas, no extra goodies other than a Foster female quick connect adapter and paperwork was in the box.  It just goes to show you how well our friends at www.airgunsofarizona.com package their products to protect them in route to the customer.

Once I opened the lid and removed the top piece of 1” thick foam I was able to gaze upon this little 6-shot rotary magazine fed gem.  I wondered for a moment about the color selection for the Minelli designed stock.  I’m sure Brocock did their due diligence with market research, etc. when they made the choice of forest green (which is really more olive green) for their “soft touch” stock treatment.  It could be they were just attempting to make their product stand out among the crowd; or perhaps the green is the natural color of the material used in the “soft touch” coating.  For the purist, Brocock also offers a model stocked in walnut as the model Contour S6.

Removing the G6 from the box, you immediately get a feel for its lightweight nimbleness.   The ambidextrous skeletonized stock keeps the weight down while the “soft touch” overlay gives the shooter a comfortable, slightly sticky tactile feel.  This is enhanced by a checkering-like treatment on the forearm and grip.  The trigger is a wide metal unit surrounded by a plastic trigger guard having access holes to allow adjustment of the trigger pull and first stage length of pull.  Notably absent was a pressure gauge to indicate how much air remains in the reservoir and no apparent manual safety (confirmed upon reading the instructions accompanying the gun).

My attention then turned to the Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40mmAO Extended Focus Range (EFR) scope mounted on the gun.  It is a great looking scope with an adjustable objective lens for handling parallax.  It should prove to be a great pairing with the G6.

The Lothar-Walther barrel is capped by a permanently affixed Milbro Huggett suppressor.  This gun is made for the U.S. market where there are very few restrictions on airgun power and my understanding is that it is capable of up to 23fpe.  Even so, in my experience with Huggett suppressors, I expect this to be a very quiet shooter and viable for urban backyard shooting/pest control.

As the saying goes: good things come in small packages, and I’m expecting good things from this attractive little package!  I can hardly wait to get outside with it!  Stay tuned for part two next month.

This weeks article brings yet another treat! As one of the largest airgun stores in the world, we get a lot of local foot traffic and get to see many airguns of all varieties. As you may already have learned, Airguns of Arizona is owned and operated by mostly airgunners. Whenever particularly old or interesting airguns come along for sale or trade in, it is not uncommon for an AOA crew member to snag one up. Over time we have a combined collection that is fun to see and to share with others. From our office walls and display racks around the shop, to our showroom centerpiece, interesting models are around to see for all who enter. But what about you, our distant reader who may not get an opportunity to come by and see our store? Don’t feel too left out, we will continue to bring the collection to your monitors in creative and fun ways.

In previous blogs we showed photos and fun stories behind some classic treasures, like the Weihrauch HW35L from the AOA owner’s collection, or the vintage Crosman 600 that Jock reviewed a couple of years back!

But today is different again! Today we give you a video showcase of an interesting oldie! The Benjamin Sterling HR-83, a fixed-barrel, spring piston airgun produced in the USA with history dating back to an English design from 1982. Production (unfortunately) ceased on this model in 1994.  Our example in the AOA collection is a .20 caliber model, making it even more unique and rare.  We hope that you enjoy our video!

When I spoke to Darren Schollmeyer on the phone, he said, “I don’t know how you can make this sound sexy.”

Perhaps it isn’t sexy, but it certainly is essential: in many ways, Schollmeyer functions as the glue that holds the sales department at Airguns of Arizona together.

Schollmeyer explains, “My primary job is to talk to customers, but I also handle a lot of the back end of the business, the billing, the grunt work, making sure that orders are properly process (the detail stuff in the sales process that a lot of folks find annoying); I kind of watch over the sales department.”Darren2

He adds, “I know Robert Buchanan because his son and mine are in the Boy Scouts together. In 2010 I had my own company but things went south. Robert needed help because AoA is growing.”

“So pretty quickly, I find myself testing guns, scoping guns, and answering the phone at the same time. I clawed my way through it, but I can tell you that when you are testing guns every day, you learn very quickly. The first time you fire a springer followed by shooting a precharged gun, you go ‘Whoa!’ I did that for three years before moving more into a sales and sales management role here at AoA.”

Schollmeyer says, “I’ve been a salesman my entire life, and I am proud of that, but – emphatically – that doesn’t mean selling people stuff they don’t need. If I have one talent, I know that I am good at finding the right product for the right person that is going to make them happy at the end of the day. That means I have to know the products very well, and I have to listen very carefully to the customers to discover what they need and want.”

Now, here’s the weird part: Schollmeyer is not an airgun enthusiast. “Oh, I’ll go on pigeon shoots, participate in some airgun benchrest, and sometimes shoot a CO2 lever action with my boys, and I enjoy it, but on weekends, you’ll most likely find me doing something with my three sons or my wife. I’m assistant scout master of a troop with 50 boys, and that generally means camping once a month.”

He says, “At AoA, we pride ourselves on not being order takers. When you call AoA, everyone you talk to could be considered an airgun expert. We want to make sure that the person who is calling is getting the right product for their need.”

Darren1“Toward that end,” he adds, “the first Wednesday of every month, we close the shop at noon, have some lunch together and have training and product seminars. Everybody gets to see all the latest stuff, to touch it, and to shoot it, that way, no one in the shop is talking about something they don’t know about. When it comes to airguns, there are dozens of tools in the chest, and they all meet different tasks.”

The way Schollmeyer explains it, I think his assessment is wrong — picking up the phone and talking to someone who has in-depth product knowledge is pretty sexy.

Til next time, aim true and shoot straight.

Whether you are simply maintaining your airgun by keeping the stock bolts tight, adjusting your sights or scope mounts, or diving in to do some serious airgun-smithing, you need to have tools appropriate to the job at hand. More to the point, tools that are designed to work on guns and the parts used in assembling air rifles and pistols.

U-Shaped Bolt

Notice the U-Shaped Channel

If you look close at stock screws on something like a Weihrauch HW95 rifle, you will notice that the slots for tightening/loosening are “U” shaped. And, if you look at a standard household flat screwdriver, you will notice that it is NOT! This means that using a common tool from the toolbox may get the job done, but it will likely scratch or mark your blued screw heads.

Household Screwdriver

Standard screwdrivers have a V-Shaped Tip

The Chapman Tool Kit solves this problem and many more. Complete with variety of Allen-head, Phillips and Square-Tip Flat screw driver tips, the Chapman Tool Kit is the best tool assortment assembled for airgun use! The come packaged in a durable, well organized case with a cool Desert Tan coloring, and includes a driver handle, extension bar, and a ratcheting handle.

MTM Shooting Range BoxSRB Open

MTM Molded Products has been making products for the shooting enthusiast since 1968 under the name MTM Case-Gard.  This family owned company out of Dayton, Ohio may be known to some of you reading this if you are an ammo reloader in addition to being an airgun aficionado.  MTM is known for their line of ammo storage and carrying boxes but that is only part of what they do.  Case-in-point is this nifty Shooting Range Box that can hold all the accoutrements you might carry around in your range bag as well as doubling as a range maintenance center.  The polypropylene box measures 25”x11.5”x8.75” and breaks apart into a shallow upper tray having a sturdy translucent lid and a beefy fold-down handle, and a deep lower box that converts into the long gun stand for the maintenance chores.  Inside the top portion are 2 small removable trays, plus a total of 18 compartments for holding everything you might need to clean your gun or for basic field maintenance.  Another nice touch in this kit is a removable Jag and Brush Gauge so the user can make certain they are using exactly the correct size jag or brush when preparing to clean a barrel.   For airgunners shooting the most common calibers of .177 & .22 the gauge may not necessarily get a lot of use, but if you are also involved with powder-actuated firearms across multiple calibers, this little gauge could come in very handy.

The bottom portion stores two support arms/forks and has recesses molded into each end that the forks are inserted into.  These forks have over-molded soft rubber inserts that securely hold a long gun or shotgun to facilitate maintenance procedures without danger of marring the finish. There is plenty of room for carrying bottles or cans of your cleaning products as well as larger items.  The support forks sport several “branches” which come in handy for keeping the long cleaning rods up off the bench top when they aren’t actually being used inside a barrel.  The length of the base is adequate to provide a stable platform for just about any long gun.  You can see from the accompanying photos that it worked quite well for cleaning a break-barrel air rifle by situating the unit near the edge of the table.

It’s an American made product that is a good value at an MSRP of $49.95.  MTM Case-Gard products come with a 5 year guarantee and the Shooting Range Box is available in Forest Green or Red.

Speaking earlier about ammo carrying boxes, the company makes small cases they refer to as “ammo pouches” that clip to the belt.  These molded pouches are perfect for dumping a tin of pellets into before heading out on a shooting session with your favorite airgun.

Like so many of the Airguns of Arizona team, Jared Clark wears multiple hats. He answers the phone and talks to people about their airgunning needs, deals with all incoming shipments, and manages the warehouse and inventory.Jared1

He got into airguns through a somewhat unusual route. “We lived in the city, so we didn’t have a lot of room,” Clark says. “I got into airsoft with a bunch of friends, and we used to put on our goggles and shoot each other in the back yard.”

He adds, “My family knew the Buchanans. Robert gave me a Beeman .177 airgun, and I started shooting lemons off my mom’s lemon tree. I sometimes shot birds, but mainly I am a target shooter.

“Airguns of Arizona hired me as a shipper when I was 14 years old,” Clark says. “Steve was covering shipping, and they wanted to get a part-time guy to do the shipping and handling. That was in 2004.”

“Except for one year after high school when I went to junior college and played baseball, I’ve been there ever since, and my job has been constantly evolving. I do a bit of everything. We all cover for each other, although I try to stay away from repairs. One of the great things is that I get to test airguns every day.”

Now Clark is in charge of the warehouse – keeping track of inventory, labeling things, keeping it clean, and informing Greg what needs to be ordered. Since he is in charge of incoming shipments, if you send to Airguns of Arizona, Clark will see it first.

Two years ago at the Extreme Benchrest competition, a fellow named Giles from a YouTube airgun channel wanted to interview someone from AoA, and Clark was nominated.

Jared2“They thought it went pretty well,” Clark says, “so now I have done five or six video productions that involve unboxing, touring the product, shooting for accuracy and velocity strings. The first one was a Daystate Wolverine B. It was intimidating at first, but the guy who does the camera work helped me to feel at ease, and it has been growing on me. I actually kind of like doing it now.”

For his after-hours airgunning, Clark likes to compete in airgun benchrest, and he is keen to try his hand at field target. He owns an FX Superswift and is enthusiastic about it. “I love the balance, the light weight, and the simplicity of the magazine.”

Whenever he gets the opportunity, he enjoys dove hunting at the local dairy farms. “It’s a lot of fun, and a service to the farmers,” Clark says.

Til next time, aim true and shoot straight.
