The P.08 Air Pistol is a replica of the handgun that served as the service pistol of Germany and a number of other nations for slightly less than 50 years. In a sense, its major contribution was as the launching platform for the 9mm parabellum cartridge, which is undeniably the most successfully pistol round in the history of the world. (The 9 mm cartridge was born in 1904). A simulation of the Luger, the firearm variant was associated with the Germany officer corps but many were also issued to enlisted couriers, cannoneers and machine gunners.

The Umarex Legends P.08 is a great historical piece that gets people talking. It’s a live action repeater that’s powered by a single 12 gram CO2 capsule. It has a metal drop free magazine that holds 21 rounds and is constructed mostly of metal parts. This famous German replica fires steel BBs in double action only (DAO) up to 410 feet per second.

9 Quick Tips for Airguns Everyone Should Know

1. Do not dry fire spring air guns.
Do not fire your spring-powered air rifle or pistol without a pellet or two felt cleaning pellets in the chamber.

2. Do not over-adjust the trigger.
Over-adjusting could render the air gun inoperable.

3. Clean the bore of your air guns.
Get more spring airgun maintenance tips.

4. Use the correct lubrication on your air guns.
WD40 and 3-in-1 oils are NOT suitable.  Use RWS lubes or similar high grade lubricants designed for air guns.

5. Always check for loose screws and parts before, during, and after shooting.
This ensures consistent performance and is a good practice for any mechanical system.

6. Always place one drop of airgun oil on the tip of the CO2 capsule before installing.

7. When using Rotary Magazines with Umarex pistols, make sure the pellet is seated properly.
Do not use conical (pointed) pellets. Pellets should not stick out past the rotary magazine’s surface.

8. Hold spring air rifles loosely.
Holding a spring air rifle too tightly will reduce accuracy and could damage the gun.

9. Don’t be forceful when returning cocking levers to their closed position.
Forcing a lever closed will bend the cocking lever. Under- and side-lever air rifles have a release button.

The Umarex Steel Storm Rains Loads of Airgun Action

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Airgun manufacturer, Umarex, has engineered a tactical style airgun that creates a storm of steel. The new Umarex gun propels six BBs with a single burst of CO2 gas and when in high velocity single-shot mode the Steel Storm can shoot at 430 feet per second.

A constant barrage of six intermittent projectiles from this semi-automatic airgun sounds like a thunderstorm when the BBs pound against its intended target. Umarex’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Richard Turner said, “Eyes widen with excitement and trigger fingers get antsy when other shooters hear the Steel Storm in action. At under 100 dollars at retail, there’s going to be a lot of “storms” heard this year.”

The Umarex Steel Storm has a reservoir that holds 300 BBs. The BBs then shake down into a 30-round built-in magazine and are propelled out of the muzzle CO2 gas from two 12-gram CO2 capsules that install into the bottom of the grip. This combination means longer shooting before having to re-load. Tactical railing both top- and bottom-side provides mounting options for a laser or point sight.

The Steel Storm’s suggest retail price is $92.50. It measures 15-inches in length, has a 7.5-inch barrel and a weight of 2.75 pounds.
