Air Gunner - - In The News -

The ru­mour ma­chine has been awash with talk of a bullpup from Air Arms and at last we can re­veal that it’s true. The Gala­had has been years in the de­sign and per­fect­ing process and will soon be go­ing into full pro­duc­tion. It’s be­ing launched right now at the SHOT Show in Las Ve­gas and we hope to get our hands on one soon. The ac­tion is based on the time-proven S400/S510 range and fea­tures a clever and in­no­va­tive for­ward cock­ing lever just above the pis­tol grip, mak­ing reload­ing quick and easy. In a first for the brand, you’ll be able to choose from reg­u­lated and non-reg­u­lated op­tions, and you’ll also be able to se­lect an 11mm dove­tail or Weaver mount. The bar­rels are fully shrouded and will ac­cept an ad­di­tional si­lencer for hun­ters look­ing for max­i­mum stealth. We’re told that the bal­ance point is be­hind the pis­tol grip for max­i­mum sta­bil­ity, and that the syn­thetic cheek piece is made from a soft ma­te­rial that is com­fort­able against your face, even in the cold­est weather. We’re des­per­ate to get our hands on one and we’ll bring you our first im­pres­sions as soon as we do.

Look at that! The Air Arms Gala­had will be with us soon
