Growth Continues In Break Barrel Pellet Pistols

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Break barrel air pistols are a growing trend for target shooting and close-range pest control and Umarex is keeping up the pace by adding a Browning 800 Mag chambered in .22 caliber.

A perfect compliment to the 700 feet per second .177 model, the .22 caliber 800 Mag maintains its ergonomic ambidextrous grip and recoilless action which reduces the amount of recoil produced by the movement of the spring piston.

The .22 Browning pistol zings pellets at 600 feet per second making it among the most powerful spring piston powered pellet pistols. This kind of power can take a tremendous amount of cocking effort, but has been alleviated by the included cocking assist handle, which reduces the amount of force needed to cock the pistol.

Other features found on the Browning 800 Mag include an automatic safety that is put on safe when the pistol is cocked, an 8-1/4 inch rifled barrel, fiber optic sights, and a synthetic ergonomic pistol grip.

New Powder Training Ammo Not Affected by Climate

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) The latest trend to hit the less-lethal training industry is a .43 caliber powder marking round first introduced by Umarex. The company that continues to introduce new and innovative tactical training solutions named the new powder round, “RAM Battle Dust”.

“Battle Dust provides an instant and unmistakable visual,” said Cliff Eisenbarger, Special Markets Coordinator for Umarex, “upon impact, a cloud of dust encompasses its target signaling to everyone within eyeshot that the target was hit.”

RAM Battle Dust is easy to clean up, it just wipes off or rinses with ease. The special makeup of the shell doesn’t bust in markers and shatters when it strikes its target. The .43 caliber powder ball is biodegradable, doesn’t stain, and is non-toxic.

Cliff also stated, “One of the most appealing characteristics for training facilities is that RAM Battle Dust does not have to be stored in a climate-controlled environment. Battle Dust will operate just the same in cold or hot conditions and has an extended shelf life. This is a big advantage over other training munitions that have to be climate controlled for safety and performance reasons.”

Umarex offers RAM Battle Dust in two colors—a green and yellow round with white powder and a pink and yellow round with pink powder.

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.
