Air Arms are thrilled to announce the latest addition to their extensive range of revolutionary rifles, the Galahad.
Inspired by Sir Galahad, the most noble, virtuous and pure knight of the Round Table, the Galahad has been intelligently designed with a range of features to ensure power, strength and accuracy. The Galahad is a bull pup based rifle that contains the same power plant and magazine system as the S410/S510 range. Designed with a unique, forward mounted cocking lever placed at the centre of the action, it’s easier than ever to cock the rifle. The forward motion cocking, encourages the shooter to stay on target, reduces body movement and helps maintain stealth.
There are two lengths of action available, carbine and rifle - both have a fully shrouded barrel with the option of fitting an additional moderator. Air Arms, for the first time, will also be offering this sporting rifle in both regulated and non-regulated versions. The Galahad’s stock has a multi axis adjustable butt pad fitted as standard. The pad can be pivoted left or right and can move up and down. To increase the length of pull, spacers can be fitted between pad and stock and there’s a short rail under the fore-end to mount accessories.
Air Arms newest rifle offers the option of having either a picatinny or dovetail scope rail fitted. The centre of gravity is just to the rear of the pistol grip, which allows the short action to be held with extreme stability. For maximum strength without additional weight, the Galahad contains a curvaceous cocking mechanism cover made from solid aerospace grade aluminium. All of the edges have been thoughtfully softened which is a true example of Air Arms engineering prowess.
Despite the rifle’s sophisticated and practical design for the perfect shot, comfort is not compromised. The Galahad is fully ambidextrous and includes the ability to transfer the cocking arm from the left or right hand side with extreme ease. The Galahad has a black, soft touch cheek piece and the unique pistol grip shape provides shooters with additional resting options during a compact shooting stance.
The Galahad’s stock contains an aesthetically pleasing sporting shape, which differentiates it from the traditional bull pup style, hence the description Sport pup! Available in Walnut, Black soft touch or Beech, the Galahad certainly looks the part. For a sophisticated sporting rifle with all the key components, Air Arms imagination, creative design and solid engineering principles have created the Galahad.
