Supporting Youth & Our Shooting Heritage

Shooting sports are as rare as hen’s teeth in most American high schools. Northside High School, in Fort Smith, Arkansas is one of the exceptions. The Fort Smith Grizzly JROTC Air Rifle Team placed first in four invitational matches, and Umarex USA is proud to support the team.

The New Beretta M9A3

Beretta’s M9 is one of the most common pistols of the later half of the twentieth century. The long open slide design is instantly recognizable. While the standard M9s (and the other Beretta 92 variants) are just about everywhere, the updated M9A3 is much harder to find. Now Umarex and Beretta are teaming up with a full-auto M9A3 BB gun.

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.

Springer or PCP: What Airgun Platform is Right for You?

The world of airgunning has had many choices for a long time.  What has filtered into most shooters hands out of convenience and economic feasibility has been spring powered rifles. PCP’s have been around… for a really long time, but due to their appetite for extremely high-pressure air, and the costs associated with building both the pumps and rifles, PCP shooting was typically reserved for activities where the utmost precision was required.  

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.

Daylight Savings Time

For many of us who work a longer afternoon shift, we’ve been coming home in the dark for months now. Even as we approached spring, there were only precious few minutes of light left to do any chores outside and zero time for outdoor recreation. If there was any shooting to do, it had to wait to the weekend, in between all the other winter chores, activities, and weather that can work to divert your attention.

Shooting The New .25 Cal Umarex Gauntlet At The Range

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.

Nearing the End of SHOT Show 2019: Umarex Day 6

Thursday of SHOT Show started off as busy as Tuesday. Our booth buzzed with interest shortly after the show floor opened. Today the interests were spread out a bit more evenly amongst all the new products. After six days of desert dry air, the brutal winds during Industry Day at the Range and long days some of us were feeling a bit worn out.
