DD Optics Nightfall IR50
New to the UK through importer RUAG, the Nightfall IR50 thermal has a shake-free 50Hz image frequency, is extremely robust and resistant to water, fog and shocks. Heat sources can be displayed in three different observation modes and can be enlarged by 2x, 3x or 4x as necessary.
With a range of up to 800m, the display shows 640×480 pixel resolution and WiFi allows for swift transmission of images to your tablet or smartphone during observation – plus the camera also has a video connection and a micro-USB-port and drone compatibility. Users can expect a minimum of six hours of battery life.
Geco Soft Point
The long established GECO brand has a century of history behind it. Pictured here is the .243 Win 105gn Soft Point version, designed with precision, flat trajectory and knock down power in mind, as well as good penetration with minimum meat damage. It is available in boxes of 20 or bulk packs of 50 rounds, offering excellent value.
RWS Pocket Mate
Famous for its metallic ammunition, RWS now has a folding knife to offer too. Made especially for RUAG Ammotec UK by renowned knife maker Böker, the new RWS Pocket Mate sports a 65mm stainless steel blade and wood handle. With an overall length of 150mm, it’s compact enough to fit into any sportsman’s set-up without weighing you down.
DD RF 1200 PRO
A new arrival, the RF 1200 PRO by DD Optics has an improved ergonomical design and greater technical capabilities than its predecessors. With automatic brightness adjustment of the display, it allows for better legibility of data – even during the night.
The RF 1200 PRO has six selectable modes (Normal, Targeting, Ballistics, Horizontal Distance, Vertical Height and Fog/Rain), and results can be displayed in metres or yards.
The weight is only slightly higher (155 grams) despite the new features and the size only minimally bigger than the RF 1200 mini. Comes with a bag and handheld strap with integrated battery compartment opener.
Based on Anschütz’s precision action, this rifle comes from a target heritage but is no less useful as a hunting tool. The DJV stock is made from beautifully figured walnut, with an adjustable cheekpiece and strategically placed chequering.
The specially developed magazine closes flat with the bottom of the stock for an uninterrupted grip on the forend, while the barrel is threaded M15x1 for easy attachment of a mod.
Price: From £1,520
