TECH­NI­CAL

The Field - - Gun Review -

The B15 presents no great me­chan­i­cal sur­prises but in­cor­po­rates some in­ter­est­ing fea­tures. The 3in-cham­bered bar­rels are back-bored (18.7mm) and proofed for steel shot. The ac­tion is B25-in­spired but lower in over­all height although re­tain­ing a sim­i­lar lock­ing sys­tem and a full width hinge pin. The gun ben­e­fits from the new DS (Dou­ble Seal) mul­ti­chokes that in­cor­po­rate a clever seal­ing sys­tem to pre­vent gas leak­age. The sin­gle-trigger mech­a­nism is me­chan­i­cal rather than in­er­tia op­er­ated, which is a bonus in a game gun. Brown­ing/miroku­type ham­mer ejec­tors are fit­ted in the fore-end. The sight­ing rib is well laid and un­usual in that it is both solid and very nar­row (a 6mm-4mm ta­per de­sign).

The B15 demon­strates that ex­tra fin­ish means more than just im­proved cos­met­ics
