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.

M16 With Tactical Kit

This rifle was one of the first of the modern 5.56mm calibre rifles to be used in action. Introduced during the Vietnam War it became an instantly recognisable weapon. M16 rifles are used by many military groups, most notably the SAS, who preferred the M16 over the standard British issue L85A1-SA80 rifle. The semi-automatic version of this which we use on our shooting events in Prague and Tallinn is known as the AR15 or Bushmaster.

This tricked up version comes complete with a telescopic sight for pinpoint accuracy, a tactical front grip for better control in fast moving situations, and a flahlight light for shooting in the dark.

  •     Weight: 3.80 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 5.56mm x 45 NATO
  •     Capacity: 20 or 30 rounds

 

SKS Rifle

The SKS is a Soviet 7.62x39mm caliber semi-automatic carbine, designed in 1945 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. The Soviets rather quickly phased the SKS carbine out of first-line service, replacing it with the AK-47. It remains a ceremonial arm today.

It was widely exported and produced by the former Eastern Bloc nations, as well as China. In common with some other Soviet-era designs, the SKS trades some accuracy for ruggedness, reliability, ease of maintenance, and ease of use. The SKS is a simple design that is highly effective and rugged..

  •     Weight: 3.85 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .7.62x39mm (same round as AK47)
  •     Capacity: 10 rounds (Tallinn version shown is fitted with a 30 round AK47 magazine)

   
GSG-5

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

 

Walther G22

The Walther G22 is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in the popular .22 Long Rifle cartridge. It is of bullpup design which means the action is located in the stock so it is possible to have a relatively long and accurate barrel in a very short overall gun length.

It features a reversible bolt to enable cartridge ejection from either side of the receiver. Like most Bullpup designs, it cannot be fired from the left hand due to the proximity of the ejection port and bolt handle to the shooter’s face. However, the stock is designed so that the ejection port and cocking handle can be relocated to the other side for left-handed shooters. A spare magazine, held by friction, is stored inside the polymer stock behind the magazine well.

  •     Weight: 2.7 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .22LR
  •     Capacity: 10 rounds

 

Ruger Super Redhawk .454 Casull

Big bore revolver know as the Buffalo Killer was intended for defense against large dangerous animals. More powerfull than the .44 Magnum and each round is about the same size as a AA battery!

Taurus 689

This sturdy double action revolver is manufactured in Brazil and similar mechanically to the Smith & Wesson type of revolver. The low shot capacity (6 rounds) of revolvers are to some degree compensated by the fact that they are generally more reliable and easier to learn to shoot.

Colt 1911 A1 .45ACP

Adopted by the US Army just before WW1 this truly is a 20th Century classic. Although now replaced by the Beretta FS92 (M9) as the standard US sidearm it is still in service with some units as many servicemen preferred to have the extra “stopping power” of the .45ACP at their disposal rather than the smaller lighter 9mm NATO round fired from the Beretta. Still very popular in the USA civilian market in an enormous variety of adapted forms, from a defensive pistol to a serious competition pistol. Famous for its outstandingly smooth trigger.

  •     Weight: 1.13 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .45 ACP
  •     Capacity: 8 rounds

   
Desert Eagle

The choice of some of the most famous heroes in the film world such as Jean Claude van Damme in Double Impact, Vinnie Jones as Bullet Tooth Tony in Snatch, Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, and Leon in the Matrix. Designed in the USA and made in Israel.

When firing the enormously powerful .50AE cartridge it sounds and feels more like an artillery piece than a pistol! Unless you’re built like the proverbial brick outbuilding this gun is just too heavy and too powerful for normal mortals to use in a defensive handgun context. However, the weapon is a natural candidate for certain special operations units needing something smaller than a rifle, but considerably more powerful than a regular handgun.

  •     Weight: 1.99 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .50AE
  •     Capacity: 7 rounds

 

Beretta 92 FS

A handsome and accurate pistol and popularised in the movie Lethal Weapon with Bruce Willis. This pistol won the US Department of Defense’s competition to find a replacement for the long serving Colt 1911 A1 pistol and is now the standard service pistol in the US forces.

  •     Weight: 0.95 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 9mm X 19
  •     Capacity: 15 rounds

   
Tokarev TT33

Standard Red Army self-loading pistol during WW2. Tokarevs were widely exported and, although obsolete now, may still be found in use in many former Soviet states. It is essentially a copy of the American 1911 Colt but simplified for ease of manufacture and use. Although not well made or well finished, the Tokarev is a typically tough Soviet design capable of taking a lot of punishment and still functioning where some more “modern” handguns would break.

  •     Weight: 0.83 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 7.62 X 25mm Soviet
  •     Capacity: 8 rounds

   

Makarov PM

This was the standard Soviet service pistol from the 1950s onwards and was also widely used by KGB agents because of its relatively small size and easy concealability. This is essentially a larger copy of the Walther PPK design firing a smaller less powerful round than the NATO equivalent 9x19mm parabellum. It is tough and reliable but by modern Western standards remains somewhat dated. It can be found still in use in armies of ex-Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries.

  •     Weight: 0.72 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 9mm X 18 Soviet
  •     Capacity: 8 rounds

 

Browning 1910

Between two World Wars these pistols became very popular across Europe as a police, military and self-defence guns. It is well-known also that the First World War was started by the Browning m1910 pistos, which had been used in 1914 to assasinate the Archduke Ferdinand.

  •     Weight: 0.59 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .7.65×17 Browning (.32ACP)
  •     Capacity: 7 rounds

 

Walther P22 with Laser Sight

Looking much like the larger calibre Walther P99 (007′s weapon of choice as featured in the latest James Bond movies), the P22 is a nice handling, light-kicking alternative to the full power 9mm version. This little pistol is a great way to get new shooters started without the off-putting kick of the larger calibre gun, and easy to handle for smaller hands at just over 1lb unloaded. Walther are famous for high accuracy and top quality finish on their guns and the P22 is no exception.

This version has a built in laser sight for rapid and instinctive target acquisition and a assassins style barrel shroud to further minimise recoil and improve accuracy.

  •     Weight: 0.56 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .22LR
  •     Capacity: 10 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

   

Saiga 12K Shotgun with Tactical Kit

This modern Russian semi-automatic shotgun has been based on the famous and time-proven Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle design. The “K” version was intended as a security, police and self-defense weapon, and is widely used by Russian special forces (Spetsnaz) and private security services. The Saiga 12K has proven to be both a versatile and effective weapon for close range situations, such as counter-terrorist operations inside buildings.

One of the significant superiorities of semi-auto shotguns in comparison to pump-action weapons is the high possible rate of fire. Even an average shooter firing the ‘Saiga-12′ can shoot a series of five targets in a bit more than two seconds; a difficult task for any pump-action shotgun regardless of the skill of an operator.

This souped up version comes complete with a red dot electronic sight for super fast target acquisition with both eyes open, a folding tactical stock, and an ergonomic front grip for maximum control in rapid fire situations.

  •     Weight: 3.5 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 12 bore (.729)
  •     Capacity: 5 or 8 shots in detachable box magazine
