Bri­tain’s Best

Air Gunner - - In The News -

Daystate and Bro­cock flew the Bri­tish air­gun flag in a big way at the Ex­treme Benchrest Cham­pi­onships in Ari­zona, US (11-14 Oc­to­ber). With a full pro­gramme of chal­leng­ing dis­ci­plines, and a large prize fund, the pres­ti­gious event at­tracts elite air­gun marks­men from across the globe an­nu­ally. This year’s four- day com­pe­ti­tion was par­tic­u­larly chal­leng­ing due to high winds and mon­soon- like con­di­tions, but de­spite the ad­verse weather, it was an elec­tronic PCP that dom­i­nated the events – Daystate’s Red Wolf, launched only in Jan­uary 2018 by the Stafford­shire- based gun maker. Red Wolf shoot­ers took the en­tire podium in the 50m Benchrest, Ex­treme Amer­i­can FT, and Knock­down Silo Pro Class events, in­clud­ing an im­pres­sive 40 ex 40 max­i­mum on the field tar­get course by Amer­i­can, Michael Wendt.

An­other Bri­tish PCP took the Ex­treme Benchrest fi­nale, where shoot­ers com­pete on pa­per tar­gets at 100 yards to win the big­gest prize pot in the air­gun shoot­ing cal­en­dar. In a field of com­peti­tors, shoot­ing pre­dom­i­nantly other brands, Chilean shooter Clau­dio Flores used the lat­est gun by Bro­cock, a Ban­tam Sniper HR, to beat a highly- tal­ented field and take home a well- earned cheque for $ 5,000!
