*Please see note at foot of this page.

AK47 – Traditional Military Version

A relatively lightweight, easy to use, hard-hitting rifle for motorised infantry. It is capable of semiautomatic or automatic fire modes. Being inexpensive to manufacture and exceptionally reliable even in tough conditions this weapon became the most popular choice for arming conscripts in developing countries, as well as in the former Soviet Union’s armed forces . The AK47 came in two versions. The standard AK-47 version had a wooden stock. The AKS version had a folding metal stock for mechanised infantry and parachute troops.

  •     Calibre: 7.62 x 39
  •     Capacity: 30 rounds (standard)


The GSG-5 is a semi-automatic rimfire rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge. It is built by German Sport Guns GmbH. It was unveiled at the IWA & Outdoor Classics trade show in March 2007 following the legalization of previously forbidden military-style weapons in Germany.

Although the rifle externally resembles the Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun, none of the parts are interchangeable, except in some cases for the handguard. The GSG-5 utilizes the H&K style drum sight that is adjustable for windage. German Sport Guns provides a weaver rail attachment that slides onto the top of the frame, allowing other sighting systems to be added.

  •     Weight: 2.9 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .22LR
  •     Capacity: 10, 15 or 22 rounds


Smith & Wesson Model 629 .44 Magnum

Became legendary following its appearance in the Clint Eastwood movie “Dirty Harry” in the 1970s. Still pretty much as powerful as handguns get and certainly one of the heaviest recoils. Often carried by Park Rangers and others at risk of bear attack. Anything less just wouldn’t work! One of the most popular on the Top Gun Tours with British visitors.

  •     Weight: 1.33 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .44 Magnum
  •     Capacity: 6 rounds


Glock 17

With only 33 moving parts this pistol is a triumph of modern design simplicity. The first mainstream handgun to pioneer the use of a high impact plastic frame. Uses a unique self-cocking system that includes three safety mechanisms which are only released when the trigger is pulled. Popular with many law enforcement organisations including the British Police not least because of its simplicity and outstanding reliability.

  •     Weight: 0.66 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 9mm x 19
  •     Capacity: 17 rounds


Remington 870 Pump Action Shotgun with Folding Stock

These guns are very reliable to use and enormously versatile. They easily cope with virtually any kind of shotgun ammunition from tiny bird shot for smaller game to the massive one ounce lead slug capable of going clean through buildings! They are popular in the USA with users ranging from duck and wild boar shooters, through to police SWAT teams, and are also standard issue in most American police patrol cars.

This stainless steel and chrome version with a folding stock and front pistol grip is just the job for close quarters self defense situations where it may be necessary to shoot from the hip.

  •     Weight: 3.6 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 12 bore (.729)
  •     Capacity: 5 shots
