Every year needs its shooting challenge and we thought “Split the Pick” sounded like a great challenge, especially since the target is just over 1/16th of an inch wide. While it doesn’t take much to break a toothpick, you do have to be able to hit it!
I really enjoyed writing the first installment of our Awesome Umarex Replicas on the Silver Screen. I have to admit that I do like a good movie, but these days finding a good movie is getting harder. At least it seems like it is. One great thing about today’s web based entertainment services is that you can dial up an old film, even esoteric old films at lightning speed. Take advantage of new technology to access your favorite old films! And while you are at, consider these flicks that just so happen to highlight guns of which we make replicas. Shameless, I know. Let’s take a look at eight more films, shall we?
What a day! Tuesday, the first day of the show on the floor, is a whirlwind. It is every year. SHOT Show Rookies are seen scouring booths for swag and toting around every catalog they can find. The seasoned attendees pace themselves and have a scientific approach to seeing the show. They know who they want to see, they go at an even pace, and they don’t pick up anything they don’t have to.
Pre-Charged Pneumatic air power is capable of generating massive amounts of energy. Why not apply it to an arrow? We’ve done just that with our AirSaber. High power? Check. Accuracy? Yup. Great fit? Got it! High shot count? All over it.
If you are like me, you’d rather give a gift than to get one. Now if you hit the sweet spot and get me something really cool, well, I like that just as much as anyone. But what I like better is the feeling I gave something that mattered. That kind of giving, the kind that does the most good for a worthy cause is good giving, the best giving. It’s giving that lifts your soul, causes a feeling of gratitude to soak into your bones.
Air rifles are not stagnant products. It might seem that advances in the craft of building air guns might have plateaued but nothing could be further from the truth. While PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatics) are all the rage in the current environment, not everyone is super excited about the idea of pumping up a PCP tank or investing in an HPA compressor. That being said, we’ve revisited the classic under-lever design and added a twist of awesome to it. How? By including a low-profile rotary magazine that holds 12 shots!
One of the things we do really, really well here at Umarex is crafting replicas of many manufacturers' popular models. This is done with licensing agreements that allow us to make BB and airsoft replicas of some of the most popular firearms in the world. It’s good for everyone involved, especially the consumer, as you can get your paws on a replica of your favorite model for a fraction of the cost.
All About That Action!

Some people just think our replicas are cool. Some people like that our licensed replicas look just like the handgun they are based on. Some people appreciate the realistic training opportunities afforded by a replica of their firearm with blow-back action. No matter what camp you find yourself in, our action pistols are the scratch to your itch for air pistol awesomeness.
Do You Even Ruger, Bro?
-Thursday, November 14, 2019
What are the odds that a product released today will be around in 20-30-40 years? Very slim indeed. Today’s design esthetic leaves a lot to be desired. Trends come and go, but some designs do endure. While the jury is still out on some of the more modern creations, the verdict has been in on the Ruger 10/22 for decades now.
If you have gotten on board with Walther’s PPS M2, there’s no reason not to have either the .177 steel BB or the 6mm airsoft on hand for training when your schedule doesn’t allow for a trip to the range.
