A free com­peti­ton from Air Arms could win you a day out and lunch

As you may have seen in the news this month, world-lead­ing airgun man­u­fac­turer, Air Arms, has just an­nounced a fan­tas­tic free com­pe­ti­tion. Air Arms is rightly proud of its Sus­sex-based man­u­fac­tur­ing head­quar­ters, and even more so about what goes on there, and to cel­e­brate both it’s plan­ning to throw open the com­pany’s doors to 10 lucky air­gun­ners on the 2nd of Fe­bru­ary 2016!


Air Arms is giv­ing away five golden tick­ets, each ad­mit­ting two peo­ple, for a full day’s ex­plo­ration of the com­pany HQ, in­clud­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses, ri­fle build­ing, and a no-holds-barred ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with the Air Arms team, plus some top lunchtime scoff and a glo­ri­ous goody bag stuffed with over a hun­dred quid’s worth of Air Arms kit.

As you can see, win­ning a golden ticket gives you and a friend of your choice the airgun op­por­tu­nity of a life­time; all you have to do is get your­self to Hail­sham in Sus­sex, and watch in won­der as your great day un­folds!

It’s go­ing to be an oc­ca­sion that will live in the mem­ory for­ever, and your chance of win­ning one of those golden tick­ets is wait­ing for you as soon as you turn this page. Don’t do that yet, though, be­cause here’s what’s wait­ing for those golden ticket win­ners.


The win­ners will meet the Air Arms team at 09.30 on Tues­day the 2nd of Fe­bru­ary next year, so make sure you’re free on that day be­cause you really won’t want to miss this one.

Af­ter meet­ing the team and en­joy­ing a quick re­fresh­ment, the win­ners will set off on a guided tour of the Air Arms ma­chine shop. This is where bar stock and other raw ma­te­ri­als meet the hitech in­flu­ence of CNC ma­chin­ery, plus just the right amount of tra­di­tional engi­neer­ing skills, to cre­ate and fin­ish the com­po­nents from which Air Arms’ world­beat­ing ri­fles are made.

It’s an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney and you’ll see those fa­mous air­guns take shape be­fore your very eyes. You’ll pause for lunch and a chat at 12.30, be­fore mov­ing on to the

sec­ond phase of the tour.


Af­ter lunch, you’ll get an ex­clu­sive be­hind the scenes look at the var­i­ous stages of as­sem­bly that take place be­fore each ri­fle is tested, cal­i­brated and tested again. Each model has its own ded­i­cated gun­smith who knows ev­ery nut, bolt, washer and seal that com­bine to make some of the finest air ri­fles in the world. Just watch it all come to­gether and ask as many ques­tions as you like, be­cause this op­por­tu­nity is a gen­uine once-in-a-life­time chance to find out the full in­side story of the Air Arms range.


Af­ter the as­sem­bly shop tour, you’ll all meet up for more re­fresh­ments and a ques­tion-an­dan­swer ses­sion, be­fore col­lect­ing your goody bags and say­ing farewell to the fac­tory and the Air Arms team. Your head will be spin­ning by now, but what a truly amaz­ing day you’ll have had.

Now, turn this page, get that en­try form in by the 13th of Jan­uary next year, and keep those fin­gers crossed. Good luck!
