The Umarex Steel Storm Rains Loads of Airgun Action
FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (January 19, 2010) Airgun manufacturer, Umarex, has engineered a tactical style airgun that creates a storm of steel. The new Umarex gun propels six BBs with a single burst of CO2 gas and when in high velocity single-shot mode the Steel Storm can shoot at 430 feet per second.
A constant barrage of six intermittent projectiles from this semi-automatic airgun sounds like a thunderstorm when the BBs pound against its intended target. Umarex’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Richard Turner said, “Eyes widen with excitement and trigger fingers get antsy when other shooters hear the Steel Storm in action. At under 100 dollars at retail, there’s going to be a lot of “storms” heard this year.”
The Umarex Steel Storm has a reservoir that holds 300 BBs. The BBs then shake down into a 30-round built-in magazine and are propelled out of the muzzle CO2 gas from two 12-gram CO2 capsules that install into the bottom of the grip. This combination means longer shooting before having to re-load. Tactical railing both top- and bottom-side provides mounting options for a laser or point sight.
The Steel Storm’s suggest retail price is $92.50. It measures 15-inches in length, has a 7.5-inch barrel and a weight of 2.75 pounds.
