  • The return of the Perazzi Open Day - June 9th 2018

    The 9th of June will see the return of an extra-special event at The Sportsman Gun Centre store in Exeter. Perazzi representative Philip Unwin will be returning to help host our Perazzi Open Day.

    Perazzi manufacture high-grade precision shotguns in Brescia Italy. They create a wide variety of shotguns, including models for hunting and competition, ranging from standard to deluxe models. As well as their superior quality, Perazzi uniquely offer the option of a fully bespoke gun. They allow you to choose the model, engraving and even the wood for the stock. The bespoke Perazzi experience can even include a tour of their factory in Italy.

    At Sportsman Gun Centre we understand, that although you probably would really like to, not everyone can take a trip to Italy for the full bespoke experience. So we brought it to our Exeter store for a special, one day only, open day.

    On the day both Perazzi representatives and the Sportsman team, will be offering gun fitting and advice for your custom Perazzi order. We will also be displaying our vast range of Perazzi guns from standard MX12’s, through to SCO Extra models as well as offering huge savings across current line, premium clothing.

  • ATN X-Sight II HD - Big features, low budget

     

    Since discovering fire humans have been finding more and more ingenious ways to combat the dark. One of the coolest and most ingenious night-defying inventions of the last century is night vision optics.

    Although a staple of many a Cold War or spy movie, commercial night vision optics have long been the playthings of those with larger budgets, with most units costing thousands of pounds. Although some more budget-friendly options have entered the market in recent years, few have been as fully featured and as advanced as the ATN X-Sight II HD.

    This impressive budget-friendly digital scope features HD optics, a built-in Range Finder, an Advanced Ballistic Calculator, Barometer, Gyroscope, Compass, smart 1080p HD video recording including RAV (Recoil Activated Video), Bluetooth and WIFI connectivity all powered by the Obsidian Core and User Interface.

    The scope has three modes, day vision, night vision- green and night vision- black and white. These modes coupled with the two zoom model options, 3-14x and 5-20x, makes the X-Sight II one of the most versatile scopes on the market

    So how much does it cost to buy one of these advanced, feature-packed scopes? Much less than you think. The 3-14x scope is priced at £550.00 and the larger, 5-20x version, is priced at £599.99 which is better than half the price of most of it's competitors.

    So you know all the facts, but is the scope any good? Wel,l there are loads of videos on YouTube demonstrating just that, so we encourage you to take a look and see for yourself. But to save you some time, here’s one to take a look at. WARNING: This video contains footage of animal slaughter.

    Due to the power-hungry nature of night vision scopes, we recommend using advanced batteries such as the Kentli rechargeable AA batteries. They use the latest lithium-ion polymer technology to create a rechargeable battery with a huge output with the lowest possible input. They have a capacity of 3000Mwh which is more than enough to power your ATN X-Sight II.
