Thompson Centre Venture Review

Thompson Center (TC) is not a well known brand in this country, so I was looking forward to receiving one in .204 Ruger from UK importer Viking Arms.

Antonio Zoli .243 Bavarian Review

I knew Zoli made outstanding high-end shotguns, but in the UK, that esteemed name had never really been associated with rifles – until now. There was no question of Zoli’s fine craftsmanship, but it would be interesting to see how this would translate into producing a hunting rifle.

Sako 85 Review

Sako has produced many excellent rifles over the years. There are few hunters around the world who will not be familiar with the brand, and the response is usually the same: ‘Sako makes some great rifles.’

Ruger Hawkeye Review

Over the years I have owned a few American-made firearms, both rifles and shotguns, and I have always come to the same conclusion: American rifles are built to do the job, rather than please the eye of the beholder.

Voere 2155 Review

As the ‘K98 action’ description dragged my gaze across the page of the magazine, I was sure that I had never come across Voere rifles before. This despite the Austrian company being in business for more than 60 years. It looked like it ticked all the boxes for being a real gem of a rifle, so I hunted down Global Rifle online and went about organising a rifle to test.

ANTONIO ZOLI .243 ALPEN Review

Zoli might not be well known within the UK, but in Italy, it has a reputation for its quality shotguns. When it comes to rifles, it boasts a beautiful range of doubles, but it is the bolt-action variety that takes my interest. Zoli acquired the Husqvarna 1900 action and since then, this reliable design has been the kingpin of its development for many years.

Foxing Double

It was the same old story: a friend rang me to ask if I would deal with a fox problem, as the smallholding next door had lost some chickens. My mate wanted the culprit brought to book post-haste as he feared the vulpine villain would soon turn its attention towards his own geese.
