IWA 2018 – Pardini’s new products


Three new products from Pardini Armi

On the occasion of IWA 2018, Pardini Armi presents a new version of its GPR1 air rifle; called Black, is characterized by a black anodized ergal stock that increases the wide range of colors already available. Nothing changes regarding the mechanics. The new Black is offered in all the already existing versions (Top, Evo, Pro, Basic) and also in the GPR1 Light and high power GPR16 models.

The SP/HP series has been enriched by the Bullseye model, so far only available on the American market. Developed in collaboration with Pardini USA, it was created to allow US shooters to compete in the Precision pistol event, by the National Riflemen Association. The Precision pistol event includes the repetition of timed series (10 minutes, 20 and 10 seconds), at variable distances, between 25 and 50 yards, with 3 different calibers. The aggregate form of the competition requires the repetition of the series in .22 LR, .45 ACP and in a caliber chosen by the shooter with the prescription of a minimum diameter of 7.65 mm (.32"). The Bullseye pistols are offered in .22 LR and .32 S&W with 2 barrel lengths, 5 and 6 inches, and present a Weaver rail to mount a scope. The rail is machined on the barrel-weight to ensure the maintenance of zeroing even after disassembling the pistol for routine maintenance. The grip differs from the academic due to a wider hand rest. SP Bullseye in .22 LR and HP Bullseye in .32 S&W are now also available as conversions, to allow those who already own a last generation SP or HP to convert their pistol into an informal shooting tool.

A customization kit, conceived for the K10 and inspired by the New version of the K12 air pistol, was introduced last July. It allows the upgrading of all the K10s so far marketed. The kit includes an ergal barrel-cover which can be screwed up to 8 counterweights of 5 grams each. The barrel-cover, 45 grams, can be easily inserted on the barrel after removing the front sight ramp and secured by tightening two Allen screws. The operation is very simple and can be done by the shooter. Manufactured in 4 different colors (black, silver, red and blue), the new barrel-covers match the 6 air cylinders already available (black, silver, red, blue, white and pink) to provide a total of 24 color variations.
