New Kral PCPs At The IWA Show
Kral Arms is a Turkish manufacturer of shotguns and air rifles. They always have multiple new guns at the IWA Show. But this year they surpassed themselves with a slew of new Kral PCPs.
Kral Import and Export Manager Mustafa Sutcu showed me the new Kral PCPs – they’re very individualistic designs, as you can see here.
First is the Kral Re-Volt. That’s the model Mustafa is holding in our heading photograph above.
This new model has a semi auto action that’s electrically-operated. It’s powered by a battery in the buttstock.
On the other side there’s a socket for charging the internal battery.
This method of providing semi auto shooting does not require the use of precious HPA. Like most new Kral PCPs, the Re-Volt is available in the expected calibers of 177, 22 and 25.
Another new model was the Kral Ekinoks. This is another semi-automatic PCP, this time with an air-operated action. There’s a huge number of new Kral PCPs – their development department must be EXTREMELY busy!
The Ekinoks is a bullpup, of course. The show gun had a beautiful Turkish walnut stock that I found very comfortable to hold. There is no .25 caliber version of this model – at least at the present time. Just .177 and .22 calibers are available.
Next up of the new Kral PCPs Mustafa showed me was the Big Horn. This is a big bore, lever action PCP that’s available in 7.92 mm and 9 mm calibers.
Again, there’s a Turkish walnut stock, paired with a large – 500 cc capacity – HPA bottle. The rotary magazine provides 9 shots in 7.62 mm caliber and 8 shots in 9 mm.
There’s adjustable power capability, too, courtesy of the knob just ahead of the magazine.
Just when I thought there couldn’t be any more new Kral PCPs, Mustafa asked if I had seen the Kral Rambo before. The Rambo? Yes it’s true!
The Kral Rambo is a PCP air rifle with a sliding, pump action, cocking system.
The grip around the HPA tube can be slid back to cock the Rambo. It’s quick, easy and effective. It may not have made me look like Rambo – there’s no way anything could do that – but you certainly feel like Rambo operating the action!
Again, there’s versions of the Kral Rambo available in .177 caliber, .22 and .25 calibers.
In fact, there were ever more new Kral models on display, but these were the ones that caught my eye the most. Thanks Mustafa!
