“Smaug”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.


My sentiments exactly. It’s also much more ergonomic and has more power ~20fpe than a .22 P-Rod/Woods Walker. I think ~16-20fpe is perfect for backyard pesting and hunting small game like squirrels out to 45 or so yards. My typical pesting is from 10-35yrds and the Contour stacks them pellet on pellet to a cloverleaf at those ranges. So far it suits my needs perfectly: Accuracy, enough power, short, light and points extremely well. 18 accurate, very consistent shots per fill (3 magazines worth) and a six shot magazine is perfect for me for pesting with quick follow-up shots if required for humane kills. 

So far it’s 2 for 2 both headshots at 25yrds both right between eye and ear with surgical accuracy as intended.
