British PCP manufacturers were well represented at IWA OutdoorClassics 2024. All the expected names were exhibiting: Daystate, BRK (Brocock), BSA and Air Arms.

That’s Tony Belas from Daystate showing us the latest Alpha Wolf Silver. This had been launched just a few days before at the British Shooting Show. The new model adds contrasting, brushed nickel metalwork to the HAM Gold-Award-winning Alpha Wolf, combined with the striking, red laminate stock.

Below we see the line-up of Daystate models, showing the multiple iterations of – in particular – the Delta Wolf and Alpha Wolf ranges.

Tony also showed me the “Safari” version of the MTC Copperhead 4-16x44F2 riflescope. This is finished in an attractive brown top complement “Safari” versions of Daystate’s air rifles, such as the Delta Wolf, below.

As you would expect, there was a wide display of BRK Ghost models. Below, Ian Jones from BRK shows us the limited-edition “Fady Special“. This has been produced to commemorate the win of Fady Kiwan at the Benchrest Rimfire and Air Rifle World Championship in 2023.

In common with other manufacturers, BRK have found that a sturdy tripod is a great way to display PCP air rifles at the show…

The recent BRK Silver Ghost was also prominently displayed, along with the large range of upgrades and accessories that are now available for the Ghost platform.

Below, Ian also showed me the new, compact BRK Pathfinder. Designed for small game hunting and pest control, HAM hopes to bring you a review of this model in the near future.

BSA airguns are included in the Gamo booth as the company is – of course – part of the Spanish group. One unusual exhibit I spotted was this “takedown” version of the R12CLX, below.

One thing for sure with BSA is that the bolt action R10 model is disappearing in favor of the sidelever R12. So – if you’re thinking about a R10 – don’t leave it too long to take action…

Completing the lineup of British PCP manufacturers at IWA OutdoorClassics was Air Arms. The company used the show to roll-out a new corporate branding scheme, including this circular logo.

Air Arms also announced that it is working with the Indian airgun manufacturer Precihole Sports in two ways.

Firstly, Air Arms will be distributing a range of Precihole-branded models – several of them specifically intended as club-level target rifles. In India airgun ownership is restricted to .177 caliber. However there is a vibrant target-shooting community and Indian shooters – both ladies and men – are extremely successful in 10 Meter target competitions at international level.

In addition, There are three Precihole-manufactured guns that are to be branded as Air Arms products. These are the X200 series.

The Air Arms X200 Virtue and Vanguard models are 12 Ft/Lbs-only models for the UK market. However the X200 Valour is to be available with power levels up to 20 Ft/Lbs in .177 caliber and 29 Ft/Lbs in .22 cal.

Air Arms sales manager Chris Sanderson shows us the X200 Valour model in the photographs above and below.

There’s not a great deal of detailed specifications yet available for these new X200 models. However, it is clear that they are NOT regulated and have un-shrouded barrels, as can easily be seen.

Sorry I can't confirm that being a slug barrel - although I would not be surprised. Maybe some one from Daystate will be able to help us with this question...
