BROTHERS IN ARMS
The Shooting Party of Shenstone, Staffs, UK, the shooting and outdoor pursuits company, have been appointed the UK’s sole exclusive distributor of CO2 steel BB rifles, pistols and associated shooting sports equipment for Lee-Enfield (Guns) Ltd.
Chairman, Mike Hurney, told us, ‘The legendary Mosin-Nagant Russian rifle, which we introduced in 2016, became such an incredible success that we negotiated an agreement with Lee-Enfield (Guns) Ltd to distribute to the UK trade their ‘Brothers in Arms’ series of iconic rifles and pistols, and the first product in the series is the Lee-Enfield SMLE rifle. The second product is the Mauser Karabiner 98k (carbine 98 for short, often abbreviated as Kar98k, or K98k), a bolt-action rifle that was adopted as the standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht. Obviously, we’re incredibly excited about these fantastic new products, which will be the first of a whole range of iconic replicas.’
Priced at £399 for each model, the new guns will be available in July, and Airgun World’s vintage expert, John Milewski, is every bit as excited as Mike Hurney about their arrival. Look out for our exclusive review! Contacts: Mike Hurney, firstname.lastname@example.org. Charlie Shepherd, email@example.com
The Lee-Enfield SMLE (below) and its Mauser 98k counterpart will become best-sellers, as the Mosin-Nagant did before them.
