Press Release: New Caliber Emerges for the Unsurpassed Umarex® Gauntlet®

FORT SMITH, AR (December 12, 2018) - Umarex USA Inc. announces a major addition to their Gauntlet line of Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) air rifles: the .25 caliber Gauntlet. The Gauntlet offers the larger .25 caliber for the same market driving MSRP of just $299.99.

The .25 caliber Umarex Gauntlet provides up to 27 consistent, powerful shots from one fill of its high capacity 13-cubic inch regulated tank. The 1,900 psi built-in regulator delivers consistent velocity from shot-to-shot for long, flat shot strings. This translates directly into outstanding accuracy for a successful day of small to mid-game hunting or serious target shooting.

With up to 27 consistent shots at 895 feet per second with a 25 grain pellet, the .25 caliber Gauntlet is clearly unmatched when combined with its inherent accuracy, flexible features and 45 foot pounds of generated energy. Shooters can have confidence in the energy transfer into its target without variations in velocity due to changing tank pressure—the “shot curve” characteristic of unregulated PCP air rifles. As long as the built-in pressure gauge remains above 1,900 psi, the regulated Gauntlet generates rock-steady velocity and terminal energy.

This multi-shot, bolt-action repeater uses economical, easily loaded, interchangeable 8-shot magazines for rapid fire or follow-up shots in the field. One magazine is supplied with the Gauntlet and additional magazines are available as an accessory.

The Gauntlet’s 3,000 psi air tank is easily filled using the built-in, standard Foster quick connect fitting and the Umarex SuperFill hand pump or a high pressure electric air compressor. For extended shooting sessions, a simple pressure release key allows the compact regulated air tank to be removed when pressure is low. It can be replaced with another, fully-charged air tank providing even more consistent shots, without the need to carry bulky high pressure air re-fill tanks or a pump.

Fully moderated by its full-length shroud, the Umarex Gauntlet is incredibly quiet. Both stealthy backyard target shooters and serious hunters benefit from its ability to provide rapid, near-silent, full-power follow-up shots on demand.

To maximize your accuracy capability with the Gauntlet, it has an integral standard 11 mm dovetail rail for scope mounting. Umarex USA suggests using the 4-16x44 Gauntlet Scope from Axeon Optics, which includes rings ready for mounting to the Gauntlet. The easily adjustable stock comb locks into position for the ideal cheek weld, whatever your physique. Target shooters will appreciate the included single shot tray for the ultimate in precision shooting.

At 8.5 lbs, the Gauntlet is a steady and comfortable air rifle. It balances well lending to its outstanding tack-driving accuracy. The stock’s integral sling studs allow for an easy carry in the field.

Everything about this air rifle has been optimized to set the new standard in affordable .25 caliber PCP performance. The Umarex Gauntlet is a complete shooting air powered platform. Extra magazines and a high pressure air Hand Pump with an optional air drying assembly are offered by Umarex USA and aftermarket air tanks are also available from a variety of retailers.

With this new .25 caliber Gauntlet from Umarex Airguns, Umarex USA really has thrown down the gauntlet. This Gauntlet is the PCP air rifle every hunter and survivalist desires!
