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

 

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

 

Revolvers

Taurus .38 Special Revolver

Classic police type revolver popular in the 1980′s and 1990′s and still in use with some police forces around the world due to the simplicity of operation requiring minimal training, and fail safe nature of the revolver mechanism.  Relatively low recoil compared to its my powerful brother the .357 Magnum but still a very capable self defense pistol.

  • Weight: 1.10 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .38 Special
  • 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.

  • Calibre: .22LR
  • Capacity: 9 rounds

 

Rifles

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

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.
