Air Guns Go Tactical: Introducing the HK MP5 K-PDW
FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) The allure of shooting tactical guns is now accessible to almost anyone. Well-known airgun manufacturer, Umarex, has introduced a CO2 powered HK MP5 K-PDW that fires steel BBs up to 400 feet per second.
The semi-automatic plinking machine features a realistic recoil action and foldable stock. Its magazine “drops out” just like a magazine releases from a MP5 firearm and holds a capacity of 40 rounds.
“Just flip through magazines and you’ll see more and more tactical-style guns.” said Justin Biddle, Marketing Manager for Umarex USA, “Today’s recreational shooters are gravitating toward this style of gun. Combining a tactical appearance with an airgun platform makes shooting a tactical-looking gun affordable and fun.”
The single 12-gram CO2 capsule that propels the BBs installs in the rear of the receiver. The K-PDW’s “flash suppressor” can be removed to reveal a 3-lug imitation muzzle.
Specifications of the HK MP5 K-PDW BB gun are: 21.7-inch overall length, 7-inch smooth bore barrel, and 2.4 pounds weight. The rear sight is adjustable for windage. Suggested retail price is $119.95.
