Brocock Compatto MKII.
The Brocock Compatto MKII comes in an ambidextrous synthetic “ladder-frame” stock that is very durable and does not bruise easily like wood stocks. This PCP air rifle is also classed as a semi-bullpup and is therefore able to be licenced in states like West Australia where they disallow Bullpups. The Shrouded barrels on the Compattos and ALL Brococks, are COSMETIC ONLY! As Shrouded barrels are an illegal form of silencing, the factory provides us with solid barrel bobbins (as opposed to ventilated ones) that are needed to align the shroud, effectively rendering the shroud ineffective.
Performance of the Brocock Compatto MKII.
This PCP air rifle differs little in the scale of power, as the .22 delivers 28Fpe (Foot Pounds of Energy) and 18 Fpe in .177 calibre much the same as countless other PCP air rifles. What is does bring to the mix is accuracy, bullpup comfort when shooting, compactness for ease of handling and reliability.
Weight: 3.17 Kgs
Calibres: .177 and .22
Magazine: 10 shots
Power Settings: 3
Air Cylinder: 150cc
Working Pressure: 240 Bar (Australia)
The magazine is similar in style to the Daystate magazines, being made of metal, self indexing rotary and extremely reliable and easy to load. This 10 shot magazine is common throughout the Brocock range.
The air cylinder comes in 150cc which limits its shot count to some degree. With a slingshot hammer system Brocock is able to extract in excess of 40 shots to the fill. The caveat here is this depends on the power level the air rifle is set to as they do vary from gun to gun. If you have a Brocock Compatto MKII set at 24Fpe it stands to reason your shot count will be better than a similar Compatto MKII set at 30Fpe. I usually adjust the air rifles to suit the customers intended use when doing a Pellet Selection prior to delivery.
On this note, I recently supplied a professional vermin controller who is shooting pigeons between 50 and 80 metres with a Brocock Compatto MKII. So contrary to public opinion, size does not matter all the time, as this small PCP air rifle can mix it with others being considerably larger and more expensive.
Brocock Compatto MKII Summary.
To those of you researching the PCP air rifle market, this Brocock Compatto MKII is worthy of attention being exceptional value for money. The only limiting factor I see here, is the small air cylinder of 150cc that limits your shot count to a degree, especially when comparing it to the Brocock Bantam that boasts 480cc and 500cc optional. The compactness, ease of handling, accuracy and price of this PCP I feel exonerates its smallish shot count.
When considering buying a PCP air rifle just like this Brocock Compatto MKII, please remember to factor in a scope and method of filling the PCPs air cylinder to 240 Bar, such as a 300 Bar PCP Compressor. That said, the best way forward from here is to request a quote complete with what you feel you need as package prices are the way to save money. Please note that all air rifles have to be shipped directly to a dealer of your choice should you live outside of Queensland. Should you require anymore information on the Brocock Compatto MKII, an article exists that I wrote on the Brocock Compatto MKI that only differs slightly from the current model.
