The US company Skout Airguns has introduced a highly modular PCP bullpup. Skout Epoch can be set up for almost any type of shooting using all popular pellets and slugs.
The gun is highly compact and comes with three S-sized barrel inserts of the same caliber and 25” length (635 mm). Each insert has a different bore size to fit all kinds of airgun ammunition. You can easily replace it for the longer 35” (889 mm) variant, which is sold separately. The insert is placed into the carbon shroud with an integrated sound moderator.
The fully adjustable buttstock will allow you to set the height of the cheek rest and position of the buttpad. The ergonomically shaped pistol grip has replaceable panels to optimize its shape for maximum comfort. The side lever is placed just above the grip and can be attached to the other side of the rifle without any problems. The air cylinder has a capacity of 500 cc.
The first PCP air rifle with digital interface
Skout Epoch utilizes the revolutionary solenoid valve with a built-in digital interface. The OLED display on the backside of the grip can be turned on with a red switch. An illuminated button in front of the trigger functions as a digital safety and will also allow you to switch between different modes and to program them.
You can choose from LIMIT, MATCH or HUNT firing modes and to also adjust the fire timer period before the digital safety engages again or to choose one of three available voice sets and their volume. There is also an Auto Shutdown function and many more useful features.
The functionality of this airgun depends on this digital system. This means that you won’t be able to shoot with a drained battery. The built-in Li-Ion battery can be charged with the included USB-C cable and a charger, which the manufacturer only provides in USA standard without EU adapter. You can easily replace it with any 100-240V USB charger.
This model comes with a digital safety and breach sensor. First you have to turn on the digital interface with the red switch on the grip. The bolt must be in the closed position (bolt handle all the way forward) and you also have to press the button in front of the trigger. The rifle will be ready to shoot once the button is illuminated by red colour.
Excellent shooting properties
An extremely lightweight competition trigger is fully adjustable and a high-capacity magazine has a magnetic plate for easier loading. A long Picatinny rail on the top of the rifle allows for an attachment of a scope and an M-LOK forearm can be used to mount all sorts of accessories.
Skout Epoch comes in a Plano padded case with a large assortment of tools and spares in a stylized hard case.
