Great-looking guns, too. I think the reason they’re not more popular is that when folks think “.22 PCP rifle” they’re also thinking “> 25 FPE” so they avoid it as underpowered. 

But I think it has plenty of power for small game out to 40 yards. I don’t think it has an excess of power, to where you’d be looking to find more expandable ammo due to it blowing through the animals so fast, but enough. We have to give some credit to the UK government for this too. If they’d not been imposing ridiculous energy restrictions on its “subjects” then we might not have such accurate PCPs. (if you’ve only got 11.5 FPE, you gotta go for head shots, right?)  

They’re on close-out pricing now, since that’s an old, independent Brocock, instead of a new Daystate/Brocock. Another way to look at it is that it’s the same price as a Marauder Pistol “Woods Walker.”, but more accurate, and with 40% more power.
