Brocock Commander XR is the latest Airrifle from Brocock.
The Brocock Commander XR multi-shot PCP air rifle will be grabbing attention at this year’s IWA Outdoor Classics trade show in Nuremberg. Christened the Brocock Commander, it’s an exciting multi-shot addition to the company’s new-look range that includes revamped versions of the successful Compatto and Bantam semi-bullpup models.
Brocock’s continued partnership with Dutch regulator specialists, Huma, is visually evident in the Commander’s twin gauge array – one for the rifle’s buddy-bottle pressure, the other for the regulator’s. Look closer, however and you appreciate further why Brocock’s new rifle is a force to be reckoned with; if ever there was a rifle to earn its stripes, the Commander is it!
Not only is shot-to-shot consistency improved courtesy of its on-board regulator, but the Commander boasts power outputs of up to 12 ft/lbs and a shots-per-charge count of 500 according to its configuration: it’s available in .177, .22 or .25 calibre, with either a 400 or 500cc steel buddy-bottle, or a lightweight carbon-fibre 480cc bottle on the HiLite variant.
In keeping with its tactical looks, the Brocock Commander sports numerous practical features, like Picatinny scope and accessory rails, on-the-fly Hi/Lo power adjuster and a fast-throw side-bolt to cycle its auto-indexing 10-shot magazine. Its full-length shroud – which secretes a Lothar Walther barrel no less – also doubles as a reflex-type report suppressor, while the ported muzzle brake helps maximise the accuracy on offer from the Commander’s regulated and totally recoilless firing cycle.
