The new Brocock Compatto air rifle is the latest PCP to appear in the US market.
The Brocock Compatto features an unique semi-bullpup configuration. This uses a shorter than normal buttstock, together with trigger and bolt handle placed further forward than usual. The result is a compact, yet powerful 10-shot repeater air rifle with an overall length of just 34-inches, yet having a full-length 18-inch long barrel.
There’s a substantial one-piece breech block to hold the Lothar Walther barrel in place. The all new firing system is claimed to provide many consistent shots per fill, courtesy of the Slingshot hammer system. A three-step power adjuster gives settings at 30, 25, and 20 ft lbs of energy in 22 caliber.
The manufacturer claims that the Brocock Compatto has a smooth, almost effortless cocking action and that the bolt handle is placed in a forward position for fast, easy and accurate follow up shots.
The Compatto’s trigger is a two stage, fully adjustable unit that’s claimed to break clean at approximately 3 lbs at the factory setting. There’s a paddle safety within the trigger guard for quick and quiet, on and off use.
The Brocock Compatto is fitted with a ballistic nylon stock with no-slip surfaces. This robust but lightweight stock is finished at the butt with an adjustable, soft curved pad. This helps to keep the “gun only” weight to under 6 Pounds.
US importer Airguns of Arizona tells HAM that the new Brocock Compatto semi-bullpup air rifle is the first all new gun to be 100 % designed and produced by the new Diana group. The Diana group includes both one of the finest Italian shotgun makers, they say, but also Daystate, makers of the fine English made air rifles.
The gun shown in our photographs includes the optional Huggett sound moderator and mounted Hawke scope.
