Revamped, last year, to Mark 2 status to reflect the many subtle improvements this rifle has evolved since its 2013 launch, Arkenstone still retains the multiple choice of formats which gave this bolt-action PCP such wide appeal.
The C-Type utilises a 100cc under-barrel air tube, while the 100cc buddy-bottle B-Type model offers a higher shot-count per fill. For the weight conscious, there’s the Hi-Lite model, fitted with a 480cc carbon-fibre buddy-bottle. And the Hi-Power models – available in .22, .25 calibres – provide those shooters after maximum power with muzzle energy capabilities of 60, 70ft/lbs respectively.
The Arkenstone is available with an ambidextrous thumbhole stock in walnut, which now incorporates a butt pad offering adjustability for both height and cast. The C-Type woodwork blends in an extended forend made from ballistic polymer, which incorporates a Picatinny accessory rail for fitting components such as a bipod, flashlight or laser.
A marvel of mechanical PCP design, the Arkenstone ’s many guises make it as versatile as it is impressive.
