High Performance PCP Air Rifle for Hunting and the Range

Multi-shot PCP

The Gauntlet achieves these huge numbers of shots using its high capacity 13-cu. in. regulated tank. The built-in regulator delivers minimal FPS variation from shot-to-shot for long flat shot strings. This multi-shot repeater with an adjustable trigger uses easily loaded interchangeable 10-shot magazines for rapid bolt-action firing. One mag is supplied with the Gauntlet and additional magazines are available as accessories.

Near Silent

The Gauntlet's 3,000 psi air tank is easily filled using the built-in, standard Foster quick connect fitting. For extended shooting sessions, a simple pressure release key (included) allows the compact regulated tank to be unscrewed when pressure is low. It can be replaced with another, fully charged PCP tank for extended shooting periods, without the need to carry bulky HPA tanks or a hand pump. Its fully moderated design means the Gauntlet is incredibly quiet. Both stealthy backyard plinkers and serious hunters benefit from its ability to provide rapid, near-silent, full-power follow-up shots.


To maximize its accuracy capability, the Gauntlet is well-balanced and has integral standard dovetails for scope mounting. The easily adjustable stock comb is adjusted by the turn of a knob and locks into position for the ideal cheek weld, whatever your physique or optic choice. Target shooters will appreciate the included single shot tray for the ultimate in precision shooting. At 8.5 lbs, the Gauntlet is a comfortable air rifle both at the range or in the field. The stock's integral studs allow a sling to be fitted for easy carrying on a hunt.
