    Default The 2019 New Airgun Products News Bulletin

    The 2019 main arms shows schedule looks likes this:
    Shot Show: 22-26 January: NSSF SHOT Show 2019
    British Shooting Show: 15-17 February: Home - British Shooting Show - Shotgun Show, Airgun Show, Rifle Show
    IWA Outdoor Classics: 8-11 March: International trade fair | IWA OutdoorClassics
    Istanbul Prohunt: 2-5 May: Istanbul ProHunt
    Arms & Hunting Exhibition Moscow: 10-13 October: Arms & Hunting Moscow

    We have already seen hints of what is to break cover in 2019 from Zbroia, MAG, Kampo and others. Diana continues to develop stronger ties with Artemis resulting in products of higher quality than we normally expect from Artemis. The FX Dreamline will likely see full release in 2019 too. Perhaps we might see the airgun Altaros has been developing too.

    Each one of these shows are likely to have something new for the airgunner and I will be tracking them all as best I can.

    Default Umarex RUGER® 10/22® AIR RIFLE

    Umarex RUGER® 10/22® Air rifle

    Features:
    • Uses (2) 12 gram CO2 cartridges
    • 10 Shot Rotary magazine
    • Iron Sights
    • 650 FPS with lead pellets
    • Rear sight adjustable for elevation only


    The 10/22 Air Rifle from UMAREX was designed to shoot .177 caliber pellets, the most readily available and most popular selling airgun caliber for recreational shooting. The magazine is authentic in shape and the magazine release pushes forward in authentic fashion giving you the ability to pull the magazine from the receiver. The magazine holds a red, removable rotary clip that accepts 10 flat or round-nosed pellets instead of the traditional .22 LR cartridge and is cleverly held in the magazine by a sliding lever, which allows for the easy exchange of a pre-loaded clip available as an accessory.

    The bolt, while seemingly there for aesthetics, since it does not load a pellet into the chamber, serves to cock the rifle when actuated, giving the 10/22 Air Rifle a delightful three-pound trigger pull. The weight of the trigger and its identical overall size makes it an ideal rifle for first-time shooters whose natural next step up is the Ruger 10/22 chambered for .22 LR.

    Loading quality UMAREX CO2 into the rifle is easy. With the twist of a button at the rear of the butt stock the buttpad slides out to reveal an incorporated Allen wrench. That wrench is used to remove a long cylinder inside the stock that punctures two, 12-gram CO2 cartridges when installed back-to-back within the stock of the rifle.

    Beyond its function, the 10/22 Air Rifle is slightly lighter than the firearm, but looks the part. The sights are authentic in style, including the folding rear sight, and the rifle has authentic looking sling attachments incorporated. The receiver is ready to accept after-market rails that fit the Ruger® 10/22® so that you can customize your Ruger® 10/22® Air Rifle with the optic of your choosing.

    The first gas piston underlever repeater with fixed barrel and removable magazine - what a crock of nonsense.

    The Theoben Imperator SLR88 beat it by 30 years. Followed by the SLR98 several years later.

    Theoben SLR88's, from top to bottom, .177 FT version, custom thumbhole stocked model and standard walnut sporter:



    Theoben SLR98:



    These Theobens featured a sliding inner compression tube with a hollow probe that seated pellets from the magazine into the barrel. The engineering quality was superb, the SLR88's were probably the best gas ram rifles that Theoben made. The SLR98's were not as nice but still respectable rifles.

    You don't need to hate me, those are not my rifles. I linked to some images on the web for illustration purposes only.

    You can hate me for this though :



    No pressed metal and the only plastic is the fill valve cover.

    Default Walther LG400 Monotec Stock System

    Walther LG400 Monotec Stock System

    Best Performance – Best Design – Best Variability
    The new monotec stock combines the versatile adjustment possibilities of the KK500 stock with a unique suspension. The action is not mounted in the usual fashion on the receiver but instead right on the barrel. The advantage is that vibrations from firing are prevented from being transmitted to the barrel, where they can adversely affect shooting performance.

    Best Variability: versatile monotec
    • Also available as an exchangeable stock for the LG400, LG300 and LG200
    • Ideal for bench rest shooters
