Semi-auto Pistols

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 19mm
  • Capacity: 17 rounds

 

Heckler & Koch USP

Heckler & Koch started the development of a new Universal Selbstlade Pistole (Universal Self-loading Pistol, or USP in short), in mid-1989. The concept of the new design was to provide a universal weapon for police and military forces, available in a variety of versions and sizes.

  •     Weight: 0.72 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 9mm x 19mm
  •     Capacity: 15 rounds

 

Walther PP in .22LR

Designed in 1929 this pistol originally designed as a police pistol (hence PP). Compared to later versions of this pistol such as the Walther PPK firing more powerful cartridges, this .22LR version is ideally suited to basic pistol training because of its surprising low recoil and easy grip.

  • Weight: 0.67 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .22LR
  • Capacity: 8 + 1 rounds

 

Walther PPK

Favoured by spies and undercover detectives of both genders because of its compactness and ease of concealment. Although not the most powerful of defensive pistols it was well ahead of its time. Best known as the classic James Bond gun since the 1960′s. After Bond’s Beretta misfired in the novel From Russia With Love, M insisted that he use a new gun. For 33 years, the PPK would be Bond’s gun of choice until Tomorrow Never Dies when it was replaced by the Walther P99. Still, despite Bond’s new gun, the PPK will forever remain an icon in Bond tradition along with the Aston Martin and the Vodka Martini.

  • Weight: 0.59 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: 7.65x17mm (.32 ACP)
  • Capacity: 7 + 1 rounds

 

Revolvers

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

Colt King Cobra

Similar to the Smith & Wesson 686 the Colt King Cobra revolver, chambered in the .357 Magnum also accepts .38 Special cartridges. King Cobra was based on the earlier Trooper revolvers but featured a more modern design with full length underbarrel lug and solid top barrel rib. Its sights are fully adjustable. Like its more powerful twin, the Colt Anaconda (.44 Magnum), all King Cobras were made from stainless steel. The King Cobra is an all-around versatile handgun, suitable for sport, police duty, self-defence and even hunting.

  • Weight: 1.20 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .38 Special / .357 Magnum
  • Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Taurus 94 .22LR Revolver

A handy short barrel revolver for target practice and ideal for teaching beginners how a revolver works before progressing to larger more powerful guns. The Model 94 is a 9 shot in .22 Long Rifle, the world’s most popular cartridge. Pleasantly dependable whether Stainless or Blue Steel and with durable rubber grips. A shooter’s fondest memories can be of days spent in the field with one of these finely crafted revolvers.

  • Weight: 0.75 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .22LR
  • Capacity: 9 rounds

 

 

Rifles

AK47

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.

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

 

M4

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 (including the more compact modern version M4) are used by many military groups, most notably the SAS, who preferred the M4 over the standard British issue L85A1-SA80 rifle.

  • Weight: 3.40 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: 5.56mm x 45mm NATO or .223 Remington
  • Capacity: 20 or 30 rounds

 

Brugger & Thomet BT96 – Swiss made version of the HK MP5

The Heckler and Koch MP5 is currently one of the most widely used submachine guns today and as a result the Swiss company Brugger & Thomet make their own high quality, and some would say improved version, of this iconic firearm. The BT96 available in Budapest is semi-automatic so shoots as fast as you can pull the trigger. The MP5 design was first seen in action on television when used by the SAS as they stormed the Iranian Embassy in London back in 1981. Basically a scaled down version of the famous HK G3 assault rifle, this is widely recognised as the most accurate submachine available today. This design of submachine gun is popular with anti terrorist units and SWAT teams world wide.

  • Weight: 2.55 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: 9mm x 19mm
  • Capacity: 15 or 30 rounds

 

 

Shot Gun

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 – Model shown above is Mossberg 500) and Remington (for the Remington 870 – pictured below). 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 once 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: 5-8 shots
