Four Guns

The guns you’ll shoot on this event*

*Please see note at foot of this page.

AK47

A relatively lightweight, easy to use, hard-hitting rifle for motorised infantry. Military version is capable of semiautomatic or automatic fire modes. Civilian version used in Prague range is semi-auto only due to Czech licensing laws. 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 standard AK47 military version had a wooden stock, but their was a model known as the “AKS” which had a folding metal stock for mechanised infantry and parachute troops.

* Weight: 4.3 kg (empty)
* Calibre: 7.62 x 39
* Capacity: 30 rounds (standard)

 

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 round

 

.357 Magnum Revolver

This sturdy double action revolver will fire both .38 Special and the more powerful .357 Magnum interchangeably so gives the shooter the option to shoot either cartridge type according to need. The low shot capacity (6 or 7 rounds) and the higher recoil of these revolvers when compared to semi-automatic pistols are to some degree compensated by the fact that they are generally more reliable and less complex to learn to shoot.

* Weight: 1.30 kg (empty)
* Calibre: .357 Magnum
* Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Pump-action Shotgun

There are several companies manufacturing pump-action shotguns but the most well known are American manufacturers Mossberg (for the Mossberg 500, 590 and Maverick models) and Remington (for the Remington 870). 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.

  • Weight: 3-4 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: 12 bore (.729)
  • Capacity: typically 5-8 shots
