Brocock Safari XR Review/Test

Retaining the Sniper XR’s classic good looks, the new Brocock Safari XR model elevates things a stage further courtesy of a textured ambidextrous stock, first used on its sister company’s Daystate Red Wolf Safari, and a full suite of Picatinny mounting rails.

In common with the rest of the sidelever-operated XR range, the new Safari XR is based around Brocock’s innovative semi-bullpup design that vastly improves gun handling and ‘pointability’. The new Safari maintains the XR’s highly advanced regulator system, developed in partnership with world-renowned specialists, Huma-Air.

Combining this reg with the XR’s latest hammer design, air release is precisely metered to totally eradicate any power curve and ensure minimal shot-to-shot deviation as the rifle cycles through its usable air charge – both important factors in improving downrange accuracy. The Huma-Air regulator also returns an even higher number of shots per fill-up – a big bonus for those who opt for the Safari XR in Magnum format (up to 55 ft/lbs). The Safari also sports Brocock’s all-new removable self-indexing magazine with flip-open loading gate – and retains all the XR line’s highly versatile features:

The adjustable Safari stock, on-the-fly power adjuster and match-feel, adjustable two-stage trigger that comes set to just over 1.3 lbs. Paddle style safety for quick reach with index finger!

Its choked barrel is also complemented by an integral shrouded silencer and is available in three ccaliber options: .177/4.5mm, .22/5.5mm and .25/6.35mm. The shrouded barrel has also implemented 1/2″ UNF threading to allow the adaption of a wide range of aftermarket moderators.
