We have arrived and setup for SHOT Show has started!
FORT SMITH, Ark (July 21, 2015) – Umarex USA, for a third year, is attending the FMG Shooting Industry Masters being held at Claythorns Lodge in Kansas July 24-25. As a Gold Sponsor and side match host, shooters will have an opportunity to pull the trigger on an Umarex Air Rifle for accuracy in a timed event using Yegua Airgun Field Targets. After last year’s successful debut, Elite Force airsoft rifles and premium BBs from Umarex are being used again in the tactical team event.
Funds raised at the event will directly support the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s First Shots program, which introduces new people to guns and safe shooting practices. “Youth and first-time shooters along with practice and training has always been a focus of Umarex USA,” says Justin Biddle, Director of Marketing. “Air and airsoft guns are many times our first shooting experience. It’s natural to use them for introduction to the shooting sports, training, safety, and practice. They’re fun for all ages.”

Looking to have a great time outdoors with your kids (or anyone for that matter)? Then pull out the airguns because that’s exactly what Tim from Airgun Hobbyist did. Tim threw quite the birthday party for his 14 year-old son, Ben, at their North Carolina home. The party lasted over four hours and saw 1000 pellets and BBs fired downrange with 30 different airguns and hundreds of different targets to choose from.
They started by preparing their home made range with some painted targets consisting of over 200 empty CO2 cartridges, 50 vegetable cans, dozens of soda cans, 80 water balloons, ice targets and a few rotten eggs. They also set up a few commercial targets including the center piece, the Right Now Range that held Shatter Blast targets, soda cans and some large bulls eye targets.
The targets were placed a minimum of 30 feet away from the firing line and each guest was given safety glasses to wear in case of a ricochet and were of course instructed on safety rules. Backstops were also used behind the targets to protect any wildlife they may have been wandering through.
There were many Umarex airguns at this little party including the Colt Peacemaker, Colt Commander, Colt Python, Walther PPQ, Walther PPS, Walther CP88, a S&W 586 and a Makarov. The Umarex Fusion took down quite a few long range targets and was fired for a fairly long time without needing to replace the CO2.
The Umarex Steel Force and the M712 weren’t as lucky though. The CO2 was constantly being replaced because everyone wanted to shoot them! The M712 was the favorite in full auto mode, and the Steel Force was another favorite with its six round burst mode.
The biggest hit was the Walther Lever Action western style rifle, which felt right at home in this shooting gallery style range. The Umarex Morph 3X was another favorite with its ability to “morph”. It made a great choice for shooters of all sizes.
Everyone left with a smile on their face and comments such as “We should do this more often!” The family also got to enjoy some private shooting time knocking down the remaining targets the next day before clean up.
If you didn’t think our airguns were great before, you’ll definitely think so now. Umarex has claimed 5 of the 12 spots in Tactical Life’s Top 12 Air Rifles From Gun Buyer’s Guide 2015.
The Umarex Fusion is a single-shot rifle and uses CO2 valve technology and Umarex’s SilencAir 5-chamber noise dampening system to create an amazingly quite airgun. The Fusion takes a 12 gram CO2 capsule, has an average FPS of 750, and also features a light weight synthetic stock. The Fusion also comes with a 4X32 scope included, helping you to create a remarkably accurate airgun.
Umarex Morph 3X
The Umarex Morph 3X has the awesome ability to morph from a rifle to a pistol, giving you two airguns in one! The Morph 3X has a built in 30-shot magazine and Fiber Optic sights. The gun is powered by a 12 gram CO2 capsule and has a velocity of 600 FPS as a rifle and 450 FPS as a pistol. The Morph 3X has a synthetic stock with a light weight design that makes the gun easy to handle and the “Morphing” process is done easily by any airgunner.
The Umarex Octane is one of two break-barrel rifles first introduced under the Umarex brand. The Octane is powered by the ReAxis Reverse-Axis Gas Piston, which is unique because this piston operates in reverse of other gas pistons. A magnum velocity air rifle, the Octane can reach up to 1450 feet per second with an alloy pellet. It is equipped with a SilencAir suppressor with five chambers that significantly reduces muzzle noise. The Octane also comes with a 3-9X40 scope, all-weather stock, and adjustable 2-stage trigger.
Walther Lever Action
The Walther Lever Action is a CO2 powered rifle and has a rifled blued barrel (and receiver) and is made with elegant hardwood that is smoothly formed with a classic straight stock. The Lever Action rifle is equipped with an adjustable rear sight and an 8-shot rotary magazine and has a FPS of 630.
Walther LGV Competition Ultra
The Walther LGV Competition Ultra is a reintroduction of the original Walther LGV, which was a match rifle manufactured in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The LGV has a 3 lb trigger that can easily be adjusted to suit your preferences. This rifle, while having the power for hunting, is also accurate enough that you can expect to be hitting bullseyes all day long. The LGV is also equipped with its “Vibration Reduction System” and “Super Silent Technology”, which means no spring noise, no creaks, no groans, and an exceptionally smooth shot cycle.
