Mat Manning is shooting squirrels with the Walther Rotex RM8 UC air rifle and sets up a test to see if cheap bait can beat peanuts when it comes to attracting the destructive rodents.

The RM8 passes the accuracy and power test with flying colours, bagging plenty of tree rats during the hunt, and the bait trial proves equally conclusive.

Also in this week’s episode, Mat Manning gets to grips with the Air Force One Trophy MKII pistol from The Shooting Party.

This CO2 pistol is fun to shoot and makes easy work of backyard targets – it also comes with some awesome extras and a cool Nero Rosa option.
