FORT SMITH, Ark., – Umarex USA® has shipped the Legends Cowboy Rifle, a lever action BB rifle that’s authentic in action right down to the loading of and its ejecting of cartridges.
“We strive for excellence in all of our replicas. The look has to be right. The function has to be right. The feel has to convey the experience of the rifle it’s built after. The Legends Cowboy Rifle hits the bullseye on all three accounts.” said Justin Biddle, Director of Marketing for Umarex USA, Inc.
Patterned after an 1892 lever action,the Legends Cowboy Rifle is fitted with buck-horn style sights, handsome synthetic wood grain stock and forearm, saddle ring, and a smooth operating lever action. The Cowboy Rifle accepts ten metal cartridges into its tubular magazine the same way pistol caliber lever guns have always operated. Likewise, actuating the lever will chamber a cartridge. Spent casings are tossed appropriately out of the top of the action with a slight right hand trajectory. The Legends Cowboy Rifle gets its power from two 12 gram CO2 cartridges that are cleverly hidden in the rear stock. The butt plate is easily removed to reveal an Allen wrench incorporated for the tightening and loosing of the CO2 charging screw.
Shooters can now experience the fun of Old West shooting at their home ranges using .177 caliber Umarex BBs and 12 gram CO2 capsules! At just $199.99 the Legends Cowboy Rifle comes with 10 metal cartridges. It is the perfect match to the Legends Ace In The Hole or the Colt Peacemaker replicas also made by UMAREX.
