Umarex Adds High Power Pistol

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Umarex innovation has lead to one of the fastest BB pistols that incorporates slide-recoil action, the HPP. Marketed under the Umarex brand, the new “High Power Pistol” sends BBs speeding out of its muzzle from its all-metal frame at 410 feet per second.

The HPP uses Umarex’s advanced CO2 system to simulate firearm recoil. The release of CO2 through the pistol’s valve propels a BB and simultaneously causes the slide to blow back creating a realism that’s sought after by most airgun shooters. It also features a drop out magazine, an integrated accessory rail, and utilizes a double action system.

“The HPP is an excellent pistol for the price.” Said Richard Turner, VP of Sales and Marketing for Umarex USA, “It combines and all-metal frame, blowback action, and a very high velocity into one fast-shooting CO2 pistol.”

The Umarex HPP holds 15 BBs in its drop out magazine, weighs under two pounds, and has an attractive suggested retail of $74.95.
