The Beretta Model 84

The Umarex CO2 version of the Beretta Model 84 is a faithful recreation of the original. This one holds one 12 g CO2 capsule in its removable magazine and can hold 17 .177 BBs. Fans of the Italian classics are going to love this BB gun.

The Fort Smith Bicentennial Peacemaker

Fort Smith is an American Frontier town--arguably THE American Frontier Town. Fort Smith has one foot in the Old South while the other is standing firmly in The Wild West. And now’s your chance to own a brand new piece of Fort Smith history: The Fort Smith Bicentennial Airgun.

5 Great Gift Ideas for the Gardener

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.

A Perfect Platform for Force-on-Force Training

The gun itself is a spot-on copy of a traditional 1911, mostly. The slide comes in a hair short of that on a real 1911 A1. The barrel has a threaded orange tip extending beyond the end of the slide. Everything else, from the magazine to the hump-and-bump sights will be familiar to those who know their mid-century single-actions.

The New Umarex Strike Point

I am a child of the 1970s. And it is a miracle that I survived the 1980s. When I was in middle school, all of my friends had pump action BB guns. I did not. My parents knew better than to trust me with one. That didn’t keep me from wanting one.

The Most Modern 1911 Colt Replica

The most modern of the Umarex 1911 air guns is this version of the Colt CQBP. Some Marines are fielding the .45 ACP version, and are most pleased with the modern take on the old John Moses Browning design. This one shoots BBs. It is a faithful reproduction of the .45’s aesthetics, with some notable differences in functionality.

Octane Elite Air Rifle — Functional Upgrades Same Price

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.

The Best Faithful Recreation of the Colt Commander Length Guns

Umarex and Colt have collaborated on a faithful recreation of an American classic: The Colt Commander. This BB gun version is a spot-on homage to the original. But before I break it down, I want to provide a bit of context.

The RWS Model 34

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.

Another Airgun Evolved from the Army’s Modular Handgun System Trials: The Beretta APX

The new 9mm Beretta APX is among the handguns that were considered as a replacement for the Beretta M9 as the U.S. Army’s standard issue sidearm. The gun finally chosen in the Modular Handgun System competition was the Sig Sauer P320 (other finalists were Glock and FN USA).
