AirForceOne has launched two new tactical-style air rifles. The AFO-15 and AFO-16 side-lever models have been introduced in response to the steadily increasing interest in the tactical-styled air rifle market, and are based squarely on the AR-15/M-16 platform.
The Shooting Party’s Mike Hurney has described the AFO-15 and AFO-16 as “ideal garden plinkers,” made to have the look, weight and feel of real tactical rifles. Both models have rugged steel construction, with rifled steel construction, with rifled steel barrels, side-lever actions and ‘secure-grip’ rubber covered forends.
Shoulder Comfort – Gun Trade News Recoil Pad coverage
The Shooting Party has added the Birchbrook recoil pad/stock extender to its range of hand-stiched leather shooting accessories under the Anson &Deeley brand. The real leather Birrchbrook recoil pad contains a cushion of material designed to reduce felt recoil by up yo 50 per cent. A quick alternative to a permanent fittedpad, it simply slips onto most shotgun or air rifle stocks, by means of an elasticated gusset that holds it firm. The Birchbrook gives the user’s shoulder protection and comfort either at the range or in the field, and adds approximately 20mm to the stock’s length.
