Umarex USA Introduces Modern Day Youth Pellet Rifle

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Today’s young shooters are drawn to the new Ruger® Explorer air rifle. The sleek open-stock design is modern in appearance and the rifle is sized right for first-time shooters at 37-inches.

The single-shot, break barrel Explorer puts safety first by incorporating an anti-slam trigger barrel safety system—if the rifle’s trigger is inadvertently pulled while the barrel is broken over for loading of a pellet, the safety system prevents the barrel from slamming shut.

Umarex USA’s National Sales Manager, Neil Dickinson said, “The Ruger Explorer is not only desired by youth, but its safety feature and price have been popular among parents.” The Explorer is priced at most retailers around 75 dollars.

The Ruger Explorer’s spring pistol power plant accurately propels a single pellet at 495 feet per second and it weighs just shy of 4-1/2 lbs. Other features include a cocking effort of just 16-1/2 lbs, a length of pull of 12-inches, a black all-weather stock with ambidextrous thumbhole and vented cheekpiece, a blued receiver and fiber optic sights for quick target acquisition.

Growth Continues In Break Barrel Pellet Pistols

Contact: Justin “JB” Biddle, Marketing Manager

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.

Umarex EBOS: An Electronic Burst Of Steel

FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Well-known airgun manufacturer, Umarex, has introduced a new tactical-style BB shooter under its company name. The EBOS has two burst modes and a high velocity single-shot mode that propels a BB at 540 feet per second.

The EBOS stands for Electronic Burst Of Steel, and rightfully so. This high-speed semi-automatic has an electronic trigger, which controls the release of CO2 when the trigger is pulled and if that’s not exciting enough, the EBOS has three modes to choose from—single shot, 4-shot burst, or 8-shot burst! Just imagine the impact of eight BBs flying at a single aluminum can.

In addition to the exhilarating multiple-shot burst the Umarex EBOS is surrounded by tactical railing and has an ergonomic pistol grip, removable forearm grip and an adjustable rear sight. It gets its power to propel eight BBs at a time from an 88-gram CO2 capsule that’s concealed within the gun’s easily removed buttstock. The EBOS also has a high capacity reservoir.

The Umarex EBOS weighs right at three pounds and measures almost 25-inches in length with a 9.7-inch smooth bore barrel.

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 an 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 and weighs under two pounds.
