Dylan Varney dominated the junior class finishing with 129; 23 points clear of 2nd place.
After two intense shoot off, John Farbrother took 2nd and Steve Privett finished 3rd in the Recoil Class both using the Air Arms TX200.
Air Arms Managing Director Claire West commented:
The Welsh boys certainly did themselves and their Country proud by hosting such a fantastic WFTC 2017 and I cannot thank Harry Legge-Bourke enough for allowing us to descend upon his stunning venue, The Glanusk Estate. Air Arms are both proud and honoured to have been part of this spectacular event. Air Arms shooters were out in force and put in some amazing performances, again we are so proud and humbled to have such a fantastic band of people using our products, not only here in the UK but from all over the world. The Air Arms team surpassed themselves with some excellent results and if they were not winning the Gold and Silver wear, they were certainly putting in some personal bests. Many congratulations to all but especially to Jack, Dorian, Dylan, Paula, John and Steve.
