Umarex Introduces the First Speed Loader for BB Pistols

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) The leader in airgun innovation, Umarex, recognized the need for a steel BB speed loader and as result has developed one of the most-handy BB gun accessories available.

The Umarex Universal BB Speed Loader makes loading BB pistols fast and simple. The loader holds 250 BBs and comes with four adapters that fit a multitude of drop out magazines from various pistols. Just snap the adapter onto the end of the loader, hold it over the gun’s magazine, and press the button to load the magazine. It can also be used to fill airguns with built-in BB magazines and reservoirs.

“We have several different models that shoot steel BBs, like the Walther PPK/S, which have been on the market for quite some time.” said Adam Blalock, CEO for Umarex USA, “It can quickly become time consuming to load magazines if you do a lot of shooting and our Speed Loader helps you load magazines faster, which results in more trigger time.”

Everyone that owns an Umarex CO2 BB pistol can benefit from the Umarex BB Speed Loader and Justin Biddle, Marketing Manager for Umarex USA stated, “It can also be used to load magazines of non-Umarex BB pistols. Any BB gun with the same type of magazine as an Umarex pistol can be loaded using our Universal Speed Loader.”

The suggested retail price of the Speed Loader is $9.95. It can be used with these Umarex CO2 BB Pistols: Beretta Elite II, Smith & Wesson M&P, HK USP, Walther CP99 Compact, Compact Recon, and PPK/S, and the Makarov.

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.
