Pellets, PCPs and Stuff At The 2019 IWA Show

One of the great things about the 2019 IWA show is being able to find products and manufacturers that do not have a high profile in the USA. We’ll start this 2019 IWA show report with some PCPs from companies which fit that mold…

Airgun Technology is a company based in the Czech Republic. They manufacture a range of PCP air rifles. Our heading photograph above shows the company’s Maria Cruz with the Airgun Technology Vulcan 2 model.

The Vulcan 2 is available in calibers from .177 to .30. It’s regulated and has a sidelever action that’s said to be easily changed from right- to left-handed operation. The barrel is cold hammer forged in the Czech republic.

Airgun Technology also has bottle-fed version called the Uragan…

… and a compact version of the same gun. The Uragan Compact.

Don’t ask me for too many details on the Uragan, somehow I got distracted.  Maybe you can check-out the company website.

Hey, this is a tough job reporting from IWA. But somebody’s got to do it!

Well-established Turkish shotgun and rifle manufacturer ATA Arms has a small range of PCP air rifles available. To me, the Prado bullpup looked an attractive model. It has a bolt action and is available in .177 cal, .22 and .25 calibers.

Bilal Arabaci shows us the ATA Prado below.

Another Czech manufacturer – KalibrGun – launched their new Capybara bullpup PCP air rifle at the 2018 IWA Show. Now it’s in production and this one has a special show stock finish.

And while we’re concentrating on Czech products, JSB had some prototype pellets with a galvanized finish. JSB’s main Man Pavel Kolabec told me that these samples are galvanized Jumbo Heavies and Exact Kings.

He also shared some photographs of the results of initial testing at JSB. Here’s one below. That looks pretty good!

Finally for today, Scandinavian Airguns is a new company that just launched itself at the 2019 IWA Show.  CEO Oscar Gyllenhammar showed me the company’s innovative initial product range.

… there’s also a range of clothing, bags and soft cases for airgun use. Scandinavian Airguns has a range of HPA tanks, too together with carrying cases for them.

In addition, there’s an innovative HPA air tank valve called the Adjutant. This bleeds pressure out of a line conveniently when you press the orange button in the center.
