    Anyone have a Brocock Compatto yet?  This gun really look sharp and seems to be in between a Bullpup and classic styles.  What are your thoughts on this gun, especially on accuracy and quietness?

    I don’t have one but if it’s anything like my previous Brocock, it will be very well made and accurate.  Why only preliminary concern is the price point is a few hundred more than the Contour.

    According to Jim at Precision they’re still 2-3 months away from arriving.  

    I was interested as well until I read that the price point of $999 is considerably higher than the $850 figure originally released (and followed in Europe).  It moves the Compatto much closer to guns that are regulated and more powerful so makes the Compatto much less attractive.

That’s just what I thought when I talk to Jim also. With some of the other used guns now at that price with regs it’s gonna be a struggle.

    I waited for months thinking it would sell for $899 range with a moderator. But at $999 and $180 for the moderator was a deal breaker

     If I could spend y’all money I would have one on order today. If I had to spend my own money “I” would wait for real world reports.  A different model but a decent write up of one persons experiences:

     I shot one of the first “Aimx” ( ???) Brocock pre-charged pistols brought in the US  ( basically a proto-type but as the first ones were released) and the factory did make some changes asap so they are good about tweeking designs fast.  
     Certainly could use a few more lightweight choices in the airgun world.

    Bad news for you John.

    Looking at the Brocock site, the weight specification for the Compatto has been increased to 7.23lbs.

    OK it’s still not a heavyweight, but not the 5.9lbs we were promised.

    I wonder what is driving up the weight?   The stock seems a bit bulky, especially compared to original Contour series, which you could shoot with one hand.  Mine with scope and rings was about 6 pounds.

    Mark, could you post the link at which you’re looking?  The link I find (http://www.brocock.co.uk/compatto.html) is still reading 5.9 lbs.

    I agree with most everyone else, too expensive. I see the S200/CZ200 as direct competition to this gun, and t is nearly half the price.

    It’s a shame, as I really like it.

    I was able to review one yesterday over at Trenier Outdoors in Sparta, Wisconsin. 

    The video review has three parts to it, the first is a general overview of the rifle. The middle part is an interview I did at SHOT Show with Tony Belas of Daystate, where he goes into enthusiastic detail about the Compatto. A few key takeaways from that interview are:

    1. Manufactured in the Daystate Factory, to Daystate Specifications by Brocock staff
    2. Sports the latest version of the Daystate Slingshot Hammer system
    3. Lothar-Walther Barrel

    Without a scope, the model I tested came in closer to 7lbs than to 6lbs.

    Many thanks, Airguns.  After Mark’s comment I did some searching and the results were disappointing.  Blackpool Airguns did a video review and their sample weighed 7.23 lbs; another reviewer got 6.3 lbs, and now you’re saying your sample weighed near 7 lbs.  And, of course, the Brocock site is still reading 5.9 lbs.  Either we’re looking at amazingly poor quality control or once again a manufacturer is being deliberately misleading in their published specs in order to make their product look more enticing.

    Likely between 1/2 and 1lb of air in it if filled, really. Now where the rest of any weight discrepancy comes from????

    Knowing that light weight figures sell guns, perhaps they removed the shroud rationalizing that it wasn’t actually part of the rifle; you could shoot it without the shroud if you wanted.

    How much does a cup of bull manure weigh?  🙂

    “rockymtbiker”Mark, could you post the link at which you’re looking?  The link I find (http://www.brocock.co.uk/compatto.html) is still reading 5.9 lbs.

    
Same link. Same page. They have changed the weight on the specification back to 5.9lbs.

    Make of that what you will. I hope somebody will weigh a naked (unscoped, unHuggetted) Compatto on accurate scales and tell us der troof.

Fascinating.  As Alice would say, “curiouser and curiouser.”  I found it interesting that the 7.23 lb figure you saw on the page was exactly the figure quoted in the Blackpool video.  

    At $999, it’s more of an academic interest at this point anyway, but I’m with you:  Would like to know der troof.

I feel the same way. Really very cool rifle, but no way it’s a $1000 rifle in my book. Especially if the moderator is another $180.
