GnatWarefare: Airsoft an Emerging Practice and Training Aid - With the Right Targets

Airsoft is fun. I was introduced to airsoft almost two decades ago, in my brother-in-law’s back yard. I took on a few well-armed six-year-olds, and realized just how out of shape I was. I had the advantage, I thought, as I could aim well and had a sound strategy. They had stamina. They won.

Ever since, I’ve been a proponent of force-on-force training. But airsoft guns have increased in power, and I won’t play with my nephews any more. They can shoot, too, and it hurts. And I still can’t keep up with them, which is another topic.

Umarex Brings Power, Faithful Reproductions, and Innovation to SHOT Show 2019

SHOT Show is the biggest event in the firearms industry. Companies from all over the world compete for attention on the show floor in Las Vegas, Nevada. While most of the participants are there for traditional firearms, air guns are well represented. Umarex, once again, is leading that segment of the industry.

Ruger® 10/22® Air Rifle: Talk about a Backyard Plinker

Odds are you are already familiar with Ruger®’s 10/22®. The gun has been in production since 1964 and there are more than 5 million of them out in the wild. There are countless variations of the rifle, so a new model is rarely headline-worthy. This is an exception. Ruger has now teamed up with Umarex to produce an air gun version of their most iconic rifle.

The Umarex Synergis - An Early Look

I’m a sucker for a good prototype. There is something about putting your hands on a gun before it is in production that feels like a glimpse of the future. So when Umarex invited me out to test out the Synergis, I jumped at the chance.

The Gauntlet: Game-Changing PCP Performance For 1/3 the PCP Price

When Umarex began work on The Gauntlet, they set out to change the way air gun shooters think about pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) rifles. The goal was to produce a gun that provided uncompromising performance without the sky-high price that most stand-out PCPs command. The .177 and .22 versions were both a success, and now they’re debuting a .25.

One of the Most Recognized Sub Machineguns in the World

The MP40 was a stepping stone, one that came along at a very troubled time in world history. But as with all weapons, the gun has no agenda or conscience, it is the implement of its user’s intent for good or bad. The MP40 has existed long enough to have played its part on both sides of that line. As a CO2 model, it is more of a tribute to technology and firearms evolution. The MP40, like any great and enduring firearms design that has been recreated as a CO2 model today, is a part of history that we can hold in our hands.

Ammunition Matters: RWS Meisterkugeln Precision Pistol Pellets

For as many reasons as there are to shoot pellet pistols, there are at least as many reasons to shoot RWS Meisterkugeln Precision Pistol pellets in your air pistol. For starters, pellet pistols are typically low-velocity affairs. This limitation in velocity tends to direct the application of the gun to certain activities.

The Magnificent Mauser

The Legends line of air pistols and rifles has been extremely popular among collectors and backyard plinkers alike. This is no accident. Many Hollywood movies and popular military based games have kept the firearms used in conflicts at the forefront of consumers’ minds. So when we launch a product like the Legends M712 replica, the response is enthusiastic, to say the least. 

The Walther PPK/S

The Walther PPK is a gun that requires little introduction. If you’re here, reading this review of the Umarex PPK/S, I’d bet dollars to doughnuts that you know the PPK. We’ll get to the BB gun version shortly, but first let’s take a look at the complex history of the Walther PPK/S.

Why Use The Most-Sold RWS Pellet?

When you spend a few years doing something, you develop a good understanding of what works and what doesn’t, what works best for certain uses, and what doesn’t. One of my previous roles in the Umarex USA family was in our Service Department. Airgun aficionados of all stripes called in to discuss iss...
