New Brocock PCP Air Rifle Concept
Shown at IWA 2015

Shown for the first time at the 2105 IWA trade show in Germany, this “concept” rife was a surprise exhibit by the British airgun manufacturer Brocock.

The new Brocock PCP air rifle itself is completely new and based on what is called a ‘semi bullpup’ configuration. That is it is not the full rearward slide of the mechanical action as found in a full-on bull pup style rifle but something somewhere in between, with some of the advantages – but not all of the radically shorter style.

One of the advantages you do get from this concept is reduced cost, as bull-pup rifle are more expensive to engineer as well as more conventional looks; important when the rifle is aimed at the mainstream shooter.

The Compatto (this is a working title for the Brocock PCP concept air rifle and is sure to change before the launch of the eventual rifle) has an overall weight of around 6 pounds and a is just 34 inches long, with a cylinder capacity of 150cc it has plenty of air to allow for higher power where the company are estimating a healthy 30 foot pounds being on tap.
