FORT SMITH, AR (December 12, 2018) - Umarex USA Inc. announces a major addition to their Gauntlet line of Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) air rifles: the .25 caliber Gauntlet. The Gauntlet offers the larger .25 caliber for the same market driving MSRP of just $299.99.
Homeowners and gardeners often call or email us asking for recommendations for pest control for their homes and gardens. Squirrels and Chipmunks are very cute on TV, but when they are gnawing through the walls of your house to winter in your attic or growing fat on the produce from your garden, they become a nuisance extraordinaire. Here are some great options from our product line to take care of unwanted yard pests.
The Octane air rifle was a well-respected entry into the break-barrel air gun market. It brought solid performance at a price that anyone could afford. Yet some felt like some ergonomic options were sacrificed to get the price down to its $259 price point.
Most of the reviews that I write feature new products from firearms manufacturers. It is rare that I get to go back and spend quality time with the classics. Enough has been written about them that most of what I will say may seem redundant. But the Model 34 is a classic. And since this rifle is new to me, I’m going to assume it might be new to you, too.
The answer is simple, really and the answer is in the question. Pre-Charged Pneumatics (PCPs) are pre-charged. They’re ready to go when you pull the trigger. And they’re pneumatic, which is a polysyllabic word favored by mechanics that means air-powered.
Umarex has shaken up the air gun world with the Gauntlet. Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifles have always worked on a sliding scale that tied price to performance. Devotees paid premiums for reliable performance.
While I was in love with the accuracy and ease of operation, I was frustrated by how fast the gun ran dry. I’d always wanted a gun that could fire indefinitely. Forever. I knew they existed, but I didn’t have one (which may have been a parenting decision that backfired terribly—I mean, look at me now).
Has there ever been a bb gun this fun? I don’t think so. I know full well that most kids can take any old bb gun and create their own fun, but this one has a built in giggle switch that allows the gun to shoot 6 round bursts.
After Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, the stocks of some of America’s gun makers took a bit of a dive. Pundits claimed it was because our Second Amendment rights seemed much more secure, but I think it is because Umarex has unveiled an all-around beast of a .22—an air rifle that’s going to take a huge bite out of the rimfire rifle market.
