Now for the bigger game
Retaining the Sniper XR’s classic good looks, the new Brocock Safari XR model elevates things a stage further courtesy of a textured ambidextrous stock, first used on its sister company’s Daystate Red Wolf Safari, and a full suite of Picatinny mounting rails.
In common with the rest of the sidelever-operated XR range, the new Safari XR is based around Brocock’s innovative semi-bullpup design that vastly improves gun handling and ‘pointability’. The new Safari maintains the XR’s highly advanced regulator system, developed in partnership with world-renowned specialists, Huma-Air. Combining this reg with the XR’s latest hammer design, air release is precisely metered to totally eradicate any power curve and ensure minimal shot-to-shot deviation as the rifle cycles through its usable air charge – both important factors in improving downrange accuracy. The Huma-Air regulator also returns an even higher number of shots per fill-up – a big bonus for those who opt for the Safari XR in high-power format (up to 55 ft/lbs).
The Safari also sports Brocock’s all-new removable self-indexing magazine with flip-open loading gate – and retains all the XR line’s highly versatile features: the adjustable stock, on-the-fly power adjuster and match-feel, adjustable two-stage trigger. Its choked barrel is also complemented by an integral shrouded silencer and is available in three caliber options: .177/4.5mm, .22/5.5mm and .25/6.35mm.
