The Next Big Thing!
Airgunners are savvy enough to know that there’s really nothing new at all about shooting with air. Compressed air (or CO2) goes in, and a projectile comes out. It’s a simple concept, dating back to the dawn of time or close proximity thereabouts. When Alley Oop was looking for a better way to snag breakfast, he discovered that blowing really hard through a hollowed-out cane pole could move a dart with enough energy to dispatch a smaller cave-critter so he and Ooola would not go hungry.
New Product Wrap Up From SHOT Show 2022!
Not gonna lie, we kinda missed Vegas. OK, there’s a lot of stuff we didn’t miss, like the stale cigarette smoke ambiance of hotel casino floors, overpriced everything, taxi drivers that take circuitous routes to the strip… There’s plenty to hate about Sin City, but the big Show, hosted by the NSSF is not one of them, even with all the hoops the attendees had to jump through in order to attend. Be that as it may, my critique of social issues is not why you are here. You want to read about all the new Umarex gear slated to come to the retail shopping space in 2022. So without further ado, here’s the BIG NEWS from the big UX for this year!
New For 2022– The Umarex AirJavelin is Going PRO!
Progress comes along in one of two primary forms for products—improvements made to existing products and completely new products. Two years ago when we released the CO2 powered AirJavelin to the world, we did the latter– that is we broke the mold with the first mass produced CO2 powered air archery gun. The AirJavelin, in case you forgot, is an affordable, fun, convenient air archery rifle powered by easy to access CO2 cartridges. The AirJavelin was developed as a fun gun, something you could take out to the range and play a game of darts on a Morrell Yellowjacket archery target with the family.
New for 2022! The AirSaber Elite X2: The Follow-Up Shot Heard ‘Round the World

Send a second arrow flying faster than Legolas to nail two hogs from your stand or have a backup shot in the event you miss with the new double-barreled AirSaber Elite X2.
Top 10 Umarex Blogs for 2021!
2021 was a fast-moving year for us in ways and slow in others. It was just painful waiting for new inventory to come in. But on the other hand, it was really cool seeing our customers getting into shooting with all of the cool airguns and replicas we had available at the time. Well, it’s the end of the year and it is always a good time to look back to see what went well for the company during the previous year. This look back over the previous 12 months is going to chronicle our blog page! So without further ado, the top 10 blogs found on Umarex USA!
Merry Christmas From Umarex USA!
Hey, it’s Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and your family! As much as things have changed over the last two years, thankfully some things have remained the same. At least for the time being. Yes, we still have holidays and the traditions associated with those holidays are more or less the same as they have always been. OK, yes, we’ve got plenty of conversation fodder around the events of the past two years, but getting together with the family, breaking bread with them, and opening presents are still approved activities.
Top Ten Best Sellers of 2021!
If anything can be said of 2021, it is that it was one strange year. In spite of the national and global circumstances, people were still spending money like it was being printed on a never-ending copy machine… Anyway, we are at the end of this year, hanging out and hanging onto the ledge of the unknown. My apologies to New Riders of the Purple Sage for stealing their lyric. While I do take poetic license on occasion, what is not exaggerated or plagiarized are the facts represented below. You, our customers, have spoken with your wallets on our products.
It’s a Modern Christmas Story: The Ruger NXG APX
Passing on the shooting tradition to the next generations is a goal that both Ruger and Umarex USA share. While the Ruger brand has historically been associated with firearms, Umarex has been producing licensed air guns in conjunction with Ruger for over a decade. One of the newer additions to our line-up of officially licensed Ruger airguns is the Ruger NXG APX pump pneumatic rifle kit. Yes, kit! That means everything you need to get started is included in the box.
Big Wheels a Rollin’, Movin’ On
I do not recall a time in my life where we’ve depended so much on the abilities of third-party shippers to get products the last mile. The last mile is industry jargon for store-to-consumer. Most of my life this was a matter of going to the store and picking up the items I wanted in person. In this “order it online” world we live in, there is an incredible amount of shopping done from our computers and especially our mobile phones. The world of commerce has always rolled on commercial shippers’ wheels, but not like it’s rolling today.
Do You Need to Break-In a Break Barrel?
Shooting, whether it be a rifle, pistol, powder burner, airgun, or bow and arrow, is a lifetime sport. You don’t have to be a super fit athlete to enjoy shooting. You can be young, old, healthy, and super fit or disabled and still take great joy from recreational shooting. One of my favorite Instagram accounts is a fellow across the pond who shoots a rimfire target pistol and does quite well with it despite his vision issues. The point being, shooting is an activity a wide audience of people can participate in. So what does this have to do with breaking in a break barrel rifle? Glad you asked.
