Air Venturi Now Shipping Officially Licensed Springfield Armory M1 Carbine Airgun Replicas

Monday, July 29th, 2019

CLEVELAND, OHIO (July 29, 2019) Airgun industry innovator Air Venturi is now shipping the latest product of its collaboration with renowned firearms producer Springfield Armory®: a .177-cal., CO2-powered BB-gun version of the iconic WWII-era M1 Carbine Rifle.

The Springfield Armory® M1 Carbine air rifle, available exclusively through Air Venturi and its authorized retailers, is a faithful BB-firing replica of the iconic firearm that saw service with U.S. troops and allies in World War II through the Vietnam War and beyond. It’s a semi-automatic carbine that features a realistic blowback action. Every time the trigger is pulled, the rifle discharges the BB in the chamber, the bolt slides back and the next round is seated in the breech, ready to go – just like the original.

The M1 Carbine CO2 BB replica is powered by a single 12-gram CO2 cartridge and gets about 40 good shots from a full one. It features a full-metal, 15-round drop-free magazine, which also houses the CO2 power plant. It even weighs about as much as the .30-caliber version – just over 5 ½ pounds – and achieves muzzle velocities of up to 425 feet per second using steel BBs. It incorporates a metal upper receiver into a synthetic, wood-look stock, with a genuine wood-stock upgrade available.

Fans of historically significant firearms that want to bring that flavor into their airgun arsenal, or even own the original firearm and want an affordable replica for at-home target practice, this is the airgun they’ve been waiting for.

NRA, Pyramyd Air Launch New Range in a Box

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association and Pyramyd Air are excited to announce the launch of a new Range in a Box for 2019. The Range in a Box program presented by Pyramyd Air provides temporary air gun ranges to approved clubs and organizations free of charge to facilitate basic firearm safety training and “fun shoot” types of events for people with disabilities.

The Range in a Box provides nearly everything needed to set up a temporary air gun range, including air rifles, air pistols, the portable range, rifle rests and reactive targets. The key components are: seven T-200 Sporter Rifles; three Air Venturi Pistols; one large (8 feet wide by 24 feet long) portable range from Crosman; three Ultimate Tripod rifle rests from McFadden Machine Company; and various reactive target systems from Pyramyd Air. Shipping to and from the event location is also provided at no cost to the user. Consumable materials such as air and tanks, pellets and paper targets are not included.

This resource is intended for use by any organization planning an event to include people with disabilities—the most common participants being veterans’ groups, rehabilitation facilities and gun clubs. To get started, a representative of the group must contact the NRA Adaptive Shooting Program at adaptiveshooting@nrahq.org or visit adaptiveshooting.nrahq.org to print the application and user agreement. Each organization may use the Range in a Box two times to establish the viability of such an event and is then encouraged to apply for grants through The NRA Foundation to purchase its own equipment.

The NRA Adaptive Shooting Program strives to remove barriers that prevent interested groups from hosting more events for people with disabilities by merging the resources of industry partners such as Pyramyd Air with the commitment of the community to spread firearm safety training to a very deserving segment of the population. For more information, visit adaptiveshooting.nrahq.org.

Stoeger Airguns Introduces New Generation of Technology with the S4000-E Air Rifle

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 24, 2019) – Stoeger has redesigned its line of airguns for 2019 and the flagship rifle is the fast-shooting, hard-hitting, yet quiet S4000-E. Whether backyard plinking or hunting small game, the features and adaptability of the S4000-E offer superior shooting performance at an economic price.

Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the S4000-E airgun features a powerful break-action Gas Ram piston to launch alloy pellets up to 1,200 fps (1,000 fps for lead) for the .177 caliber and up to 1,000 fps (800 fps with lead) for the .22 caliber. A two-stage adjustable trigger and automatic ambidextrous safety make these airguns suitable for all shooters. A fiber optic rear sight is fully adjustable for elevation and windage, while interchangeable red and orange fiber optic front sight inserts keep shooters on target.

Versatility shines on the S4000-E with its advanced ergonomics. The grip and forend feature efficient and innovative ProAdaptive Checkering. This grip surface allows shooters to feel as if the airgun is a natural extension of their bodies, providing quick, instinctive aiming and enhanced shooting comfort. The Multi-Grip System offers additional adaptability by giving shooters the ability to personalize style and shooting comfort by choosing between the embossed grips or the ProAdaptive Checkering.

When being quiet counts, the integrated S3 suppressor dramatically reduces shot noise while a recoil-absorbing buttpad takes the bite out of shooting. Both the .177 caliber and .22 caliber airguns are available in a rifle/optics combo package that includes a 4 x 32 mm riflescope and has an MSRP of $179. MSRP for the rifle only is $149 for both calibers.

HatsanUSA, Inc. Launches New Vectis Airgun at SHOT Show

Monday, January 21st, 2019

The Vectis airgun brings modern sporting features to the classic lever-action.

Bentonville, AR (January, 21 2019) – Providing a modern take on an old classic, Hatsan’s new Vectis is a unique, lever-action, Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) airgun. Reminiscent of a lever-action cowboy rifle, the Vectis is capable of delivering up to 35 shots on a single fill, making it easy to empty a tin of pellets in no time.

Based on the Flash platform, the Vectis maintains the same lightweight characteristics. Weighing 7 lbs., the Vectis features a one-piece receiver and a sturdy, synthetic-polymer QuietEnergy barrel shroud that protects the barrel and dampens noise up to 50%. The airgun’s 165cc fixed-air cylinder is constructed from lightweight, strong aluminum alloy. A combo optics rail is machined into the receiver and continues down the length of the barrel shroud to provide shooters with 17 inches of uninterrupted rail space. The Vectis is capable of accepting both 11mm and 22mm mounts.

Just like the rifles of the old west, the sturdy trigger guard acts as the rifle’s cocking lever. Simply rotate the lever 45 degrees to cock the rifle. Follow-up shots are quick and easy, thanks to the S/Roto Index Magazine. Each of the 2 included magazines can hold up to 14 pellets. A single-shot tray is also included for those who might want to precision-load pellets individually. The Vectis is available in.177, .22, and .25 caliber.

Although lightweight and affordable, the Vectis is not without Hatsan’s hallmark features such as a precision-rifled and choked barrel to ensure accuracy and dependability. The Vectis also sports Hatsan’s Quattro Trigger. The Quattro Trigger is a fully-adjustable 2-stage match style trigger – designed for both hunters and target shooters alike. A color-coded pressure gauge is integrated and viewable from beneath the rifle for easy fill pressure monitoring. The removable flip-up sights are infused with TruGlo fiber optics, and the rear sight is adjustable for both windage and elevation.

The Vectis is configured to accommodate all shooters. The ambidextrous, all-weather, synthetic stock sports a Monte Carlo cheek rest and is built to last. This ergonomic thumbhole grip allows the lever-action to be cycled with minimal motion, so the shooter’s eyes can stay on target. A Picatinny accessory rail mounted beneath the forend permits shooters to add their favorite accessory and give the rifle a customized look and feel. Although this airgun produces very little recoil, it features a soft, ventilated, rubber butt pad for added comfort for all types of shooters.

Featuring an full metal receiver and synthetic wood look stock, the .177 CO2 BB Rifle shoots velocities up to 425 fps and gets nearly 40 shots per 12 gram CO2 cartridge.

    When the XD(M)® series of polymer pistols were introduced in 2007 from Springfield Armory®, the line featured a ground-breaking design that offered new and higher standards for ergonomic comfort, ease of operation, features and performance. Over one decade later, Air Venturi brings this legendary series to the airgun and airsoft replica market, in both compact (3.8″) and standard (4.5″) configurations. The .177 BB

    CO2 series features a 20 rd mag, full blowback and can shoot velocities of up to 325 fps. The airsoft pistol series are powered by green gas (with CO2 magazines available) and can shoot up to 280 fps in the compact models, and up to 330 fps in the standard models.

    Both the airsoft and airgun versions offer interchangeable backstraps, like its firearm counterpart, for ergonomic comfort. The 3.8″ compact versions offer coordinating grip frame extensions to allow the use of the longer 4.5″ version magazines.

    Both BB and airsoft models will be available in all black and black frame/silver slide finishes starting in spring 2019.

    “We are beyond excited to be launching both the M1 Carbine rifle series and XD(M)® pistol series as our first replicas from the iconic Springfield Armory® line of firearms,” said Val Gamerman, President of Air Venturi. “The M1 Carbine embodies the history of the revered firearm that was used not only the U.S. military, but by military, paramilitary and police forces around the world. The XD(M)® series of pistols, available in 8 different configurations, will be available in spring 2019, and will be a hit with airgunners, replica enthusiasts and airsoft fans alike.”

    “With the 2019 release of the M1 Carbine and XD(M)® officially licensed replicas, this marks Springfield Armory’s first chapter in the airgun and airsoft industry,” stated Steve McKelvain, Springfield Armory® President. “This is the first of many replica rifles and pistols that will solidify both Air Venturi and Springfield Armory’s place in the progression of quality airguns and airsoft guns.”

    Retailers are invited to learn more by visiting the Springfield Armory® and Air Venturi booth, #2007 at the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

    Pyramyd Air Partners with Digital Wave Corporation to Offer Life Extended SCBA Air Cylinders For PCP Airgunners

    Sunday, June 24th, 2018

    Exclusively available on Pyramyd Air, LE Tanks will provide up to 14 years usable life; $200 savings over new carbon fiber fill sources

    Cleveland, Ohio (June 11, 2018) Pyramyd Air, the world’s largest internet airgun retailer in conjunction with Digital Wave Corporation, a leading authority of modal acoustic testing, is pleased to announce the release of Life Extended SCBA tanks for use with precharged pneumatic airguns. Using groundbreaking technology, each expired tank is rigorously tested and restored to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards, extending each tank’s usable life, providing years of dependable service, and presenting a low-cost gateway for PCP airgunning.

    “This is very exciting news for PCP airgun owners and those who are thinking about getting into precharged pneumatics.” says Val Gamerman, President of Pyramyd Air. “In the last few years, PCPs have come down in price, but the cost of fill sources has remained high. This exclusive partnership means that airgunners can now purchase higher capacity carbon fiber tanks for less than the cost of smaller systems and save up to $200 on some models.”

    Using end-of-life tanks collected from fire departments across the country, Digital Wave subjects each tank to a series of demanding tests that include a visual inspection, ultrasonic cleaning, and Modal Acoustic Emission (MAE) tests to reveal any compromise in the cylinder. Once passed, end-of-life cylinders are given a new expiration date and a new life in the hands of PCP airgunners.

    Mark E. Anderson of Digital Wave Corporation said of the collaboration, “Being an avid air gun enthusiast myself, I knew that buying a brand-new carbon fiber cylinder was an expensive purchase. Digital Wave is excited to work with Pyramyd Air to give airgunners a new cost-effective carbon fiber pressure vessel alternative via the Air Venturi LE cylinders”.

    Life Extended Air Venturi cylinders are currently available on Pyramyd Air in 30 minute (45 cu ft), 45 minute (66 cu ft) and 60 minute (88 cu ft) options that include new DIN 300 valves and fill hoses with female quick disconnect couplings.

    Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Approves Big Bore Airgun Hunting

    Sunday, May 20th, 2018

    LITTLE ROCK, AR (May 18th, 2018)– The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission has unanimously passed new general hunting regulations that allow the use of big bore air rifles for harvesting whitetail deer during modern gun season. This rule change, effective immediately for the upcoming hunting season, will allow pre-charged pneumatic airguns .40 caliber and larger which produce muzzle energy greater than 400 foot-pounds to be used in hunting whitetail deer. Additionally, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission requires that the projectile used in these big bore air rifles be capable of expansion upon impact with its target.

    While most states do allow hunting of small game with air rifles, Arkansas is the 10th state that has approved the use of big bore air rifles for hunting big game species.

    “We couldn’t be more pleased with the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission’s research, study and proactive approach regarding the allowance of highly effective big bore air rifles for hunting Arkansas whitetail.” said Richard Turner, President of Umarex USA. “The timing is perfect for the introduction of the .50 caliber Umarex Hammer which we’re making at our facility in Fort Smith, Arkansas”

    The world’s most powerful production air rifle, the Umarex Hammer, is being made by airgun manufacturer, Umarex USA, based in Fort Smith, Arkansas. This pre-charged pneumatic air rifle generates up to 705 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle and has been used on hunts for several large deer species including red stag, fallow, and axis buck. The .50 caliber Hammer has also been used to harvest an American bison, Canadian black bear, wild hog, African simitar oryx and wildebeest.

    Umarex developed the .50 caliber Hammer to offer hunters an alternative to firearms and archery for the safe and humane harvesting of big game species. The Hammer allows hunters a quieter experience when compared to either primitive or modern rifle platforms. Hunters who can no longer manipulate the draw of a bow or crossbow will be able to continue hunting with the power of air!

    This regulation change goes into effect immediately for the 2018 season in the state of Arkansas. Umarex USA is working in conjunction with the Airgun Sport Association and many state regulatory agencies in an effort to open big bore air rifle hunting in states where it is not currently allowed.

    Newington, N.H. (April 30, 2018) – The new SIG SAUER ASP20 break barrel air rifle, 1911 We The People BB Pistol and X-Five ASP Air Pistol will be among the many high-performance airguns on display in the SIG SAUER booth (#6220) at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas this weekend. Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the highly anticipated ASP20 features the airgun industry’s most advanced trigger system and delivers down-range power and accuracy with the lightest cocking effort in its class, making it ideal for hunting small game. This is the first SIG SAUER airgun to be built at SIG SAUER’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in New Hampshire and many of the company’s firearms technologies were used in the design and production of this impressive break barrel air rifle.

    “Airguns are excellent training tools and a lot of fun to shoot, and we welcome NRA members and their families to the SIG SAUER booth to check out our latest offerings like the 1911 We The People BB Pistol, X-Five ASP pellet pistol and ASP 20,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The ASP20 is unique – a true game changer in the break barrel market with its unrivaled trigger system and GlideLite™ cocking mechanism which cocks the ASP20 at 33 lbs. versus the standard 48-52 lb. cocking rate typically found in break barrels in this power range. We are also offering it with a SIG SAUER WHISKEY3 ASP 4-12×44 Adjustable Objective riflescope.”

    NRA members who are eager to get in a little target practice during the weekend can visit Pyramyd Air’s indoor airgun range in Ballroom C of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center where the SIG SAUER MPX ASP air rifle will be available to shoot.

    The Pyramyd Air range is open from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.

You don’t have to worry about ammo shortages.” he said.

    Those interested in Real Air Gun Hunting can expect to be taken along on hunts for rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, deer, predators, wild boar and other game.

    Twelve Open Airgun Athletes Changwon Bound after Rifle/Pistol Spring Selection

    Thursday, March 29th, 2018

    FORT BENNING, Georgia (March 29, 2018) — Twelve open airgun athletes will compete for Team USA at the 2018 International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships later this summer after winning an intense two-part selection match that was finalized today at the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) in Fort Benning, Georgia.

    Athletes began their quest during the 2017 Winter Airgun Championships and solidified their standing today at the Rifle/Pistol Spring Selection Match following a two-day match and Final. Team spots were handed out to the top-three finishers in Men’s and Women’s Air Rifle and Pistol. The World Championships will take place August 31-September in Changwon, South Korea.

    Four Olympians earned their spots on the team including Nick Mowrer (Butte, Montana), Keith Sanderson (Colorado Springs, Colorado) and Sandra Uptagrafft (Phenix City, Alabama) in Air Pistol along with Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia) in Men’s Air Rifle.

    Of note, all today’s Finals winners across the four Open events were 18 or younger in a great showcase of USA Shooting’s future promise.

    The 2012 Olympian Mowrer was dominant across the two matches winning by 28 points in Men’s Air Pistol. Surprisingly, this talented multi-discipline shooter makes his first World Championship after more than eight years on the international competition circuit. James Hall (Anniston, Alabama) earned the second spot in Men’s Air Rifle and makes his first World Championship Team, despite shooting 22 points lower over his two qualification matches at Spring Selection than he did at Winter Airgun.

    Making his third World Championship Team where he’ll be competing in his fifth pistol discipline is the three-time Olympian Sanderson. The 43-year-old is the reigning World Cup Finals champion and USA Shooting’s Male Athlete of the Year.

    Another notable performance was 18-year-old Jack Leverett’s (Bainbridge, Georgia) Spring match as he finished second overall and was just four points behind Sanderson for open team consideration. He showed he’s in prime form as the 2018 National Junior Olympic Shooting Championship (NJOSC) are next month and will serve as the Junior selection match for World Championships. Challenging him there will be another 18-year-old in Kyler Swisher (Jonestown, Pennsylvania), who was today’s Finals winner.

    The game has changed in Women’s Air Pistol with an additional 20 shots added to qualification, but that didn’t seem to faze Alexis Lagan (Boulder City, Nevada) as she defeated the field by 10 points this match and 18 points overall for World Champs selection. She’ll compete in her first World Championships later this summer.

    “With the recent change in Women’s Air Pistol, I think this match was challenging, but also new and exciting,” Lagan said after the match. “We all learned a little something and will be able to work on it as we prepare for Korea. There is a lot of potential on our team, and I cannot wait to see it blossom at the World Championships.”

    Joining her will be the 2012 Olympian Uptagrafft while 17-year-old Sarah Choe (Los Angeles, California) continues to show maturity beyond her years in earning her selection as well. She would put the exclamation point on her proud moment with a Finals win earlier this afternoon.

    Air Force Academy sophomore Logan Ogden (Galway, New York) is the top overall finisher for World Champs selection in Men’s Air Rifle, narrowly defeating Dempster Christenson (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) by .3 points. Earning the third spot is 2016 Olympian Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia). Ogden will compete in his first World Championship while Christenson readies for his third straight opportunity with Kozeniesky competing as a junior back in 2014.

    Today’s notable performance came from 16-year-old Will Shaner (Colorado Springs, Colorado), who earned the Finals win in Men’s Air Rifle.

    In Women’s Air Rifle, Mindy Miles (Weatherford, Texas) is putting the finishing touches on a great collegiate career at Texas Christian University and made that much sweeter today with her top overall selection. She edged fellow TCU alum Sarah Beard (Danville, Indiana) by 9.7 points with Ali Weisz (Belgrade, Montana) earning the final selection spot. Miles will compete in her second World Championship after making the junior final in 2014, finishing eighth. Beard is headed to her third straight World Championship and knows what being on the podium there feels like after earning a prone silver medal in 2010 as a junior.

    Reigning Olympic gold medalist Ginny Thrasher (Springfield, Virginia) finished fourth overall for World Champs selection, just .3 points behind Weisz.

    Emily Stith (Jacksonville, Florida) was today’s Finals winner in the event and finished third in the Spring Selection Match. This is an impressive performance after spending much of the last few months in Army basic training, forcing to miss Winter Airgun, and just getting assigned to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit earlier this week.

    These athletes join the 24 shotgun athletes that earned their selection to the World Champs Team last weekend in Tucson, Arizona during the Shotgun Spring Selection Match. Read what shotgun athletes are Changwon bound as well in Skeet and Trap.

    RESULTS: http://bit.ly/2usBG28
    The Spring Selection Match continues Friday with the start of the smallbore (.22 caliber) events in both disciplines including Men’s Rapid Fire Pistol, Women’s Sport Pistol and Three-Position Rifle for both men and women. Another 12 athletes will earn their way onto the team with results carried over from the 2017 Rifle/Pistol Fall Selection Match. Get those results here . . .

It requires the self-discipline and mental toughness that will accompany these Cadets for life’s journey.”

    Participants will compete in sporter or precision classes, taking shots from the prone, kneeling and standing positions. Precision air rifle competition is modeled after Olympic-style shooting with shooters using specialized target rifles and equipment. sporter air rifle is for competitors who prefer to compete with little customization or specialized equipment.

    Air Venturi Releases Nomad 4500 PSI Portable Compressor

    Saturday, March 10th, 2018

    Compact compressor is designed to fill PCP guns directly from a wall outlet or a car battery

    Solon, Ohio (March 8, 2018) – Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is introducing the Air Venturi Nomad, a 4500 PSI portable air compressor built for the airgunner on the move. Now available at AirVenturi.com, the release offers a portable, affordable filling option for PCP shooters.

    “With the release of the Air Venturi 4500 PSI Compressor last year, we gave airgunners one of the first affordable PCP fill stations, a workhorse that could fill tanks and PCP guns alike at a much faster rate.” Says Kristen Coss, Marketing Manager at Air Venturi, “The Nomad is positioned as a portable fill station you can take with you, and is designed for filling PCP guns directly. It won’t fill as fast as the original AV compressor, but can easily pressurize a 250cc cylinder from empty to filled in just 9 minutes. If you have access to a car battery, you can fill your gun in as little as 3 minutes.”

    According to Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development, the Air Venturi Nomad Compressor marks a turning point in PCP airgunning and may attract more users to PCP airguns. “Typically compressors can be heavy, large, and have to stay cooped up in the garage. With an MSRP of $549.99, our compressor puts fast, portable refills within reach, at an attractive price.”

    The Nomad plugs into a standard 110V outlet or attaches to a standard car battery. Once connected, it can fill PCP guns directly up to to 4500 psi with an adjustable cut-off switch. Each compressor includes a hose with female quick disconnect fitting, integrated moisture catch, and a bleed valve.

    Approximate fill times:

    Benjamin Marauder Pistol (65cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3 min
    Diana Stormrider (100cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3:45 min
    Air Arms S510 Xtra FAC (231cc): 1450-2900 psi in approx. 5:30 min
    Ataman M2R Carbine Ultra Compact (130cc): 0-4350 psi in approx. 8 min
    Evanix Rainstorm (250cc): 0 – 3000 psi in approx. 9 minutes
