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.
