The Benjamin Armada is a .22 caliber pre-charged pneumatic rifle which features a Magpul M-LOK modular accessory system forend. According to the manufacturer, the Armada is the first commercially available PCP rifle that “allows shooters the same breadth of modularity and user configurability as enjoyed by the AR community.” It achieves this through the aforementioned M-LOK forend, as well as designing the rifle to Mil-Spec dimensions for the grip and stock interfaces.

The Armada is capable of delivering velocities of up to 1000 FPS with 32 foot pounds of energy. Included is a 10-shot magazine. The rifle features full suppression, and is capable of 30 shots per fill. The receiver has a machined Picatinny rail, and the bolt is reversible for left-handed shooters. Also included is an on-board gauge and two-stage trigger.

Unfortunately, the images aren’t showing the production model. Rather, it’s a special one-of-a-kind model that’s currently up for auction on Gunbroker through November 2nd, with the proceeds going to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The package contains:

Crosman Corporation Announces Availability Of Nitro Piston 2

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

BLOOMFIELD, New York (May 21, 2014) – The standard for break barrel airgun performance changes today with the announcement from Crosman Corporation that new Benjamin Trail rifles featuring the groundbreaking Nitro Piston 2 powerplant and Clean Break Trigger (CBT™) technology are now shipping. First revealed at SHOT Show to wide acclaim, the highly anticipated new generation of airguns deliver more speed and more power with incredible accuracy, all while being up to ten pounds easier to cock.

Nitro2

“We can’t wait for shooters, hunters and airgun enthusiasts to get their hands on a Nitro Piston 2-powered Trail from Benjamin,” said Jennifer Lambert, Vice President of Marketing for Crosman. “The ease of use, power and accuracy will change everything you thought you knew about break barrel airguns.”

Nitro Piston 2 reinvents the gas piston technology first brought to market by Crosman five years ago. Friction and wasted energy have been minimized with patent-pending Tail Guides and Recoil Arrest, resulting in a system that is the most advanced ever found in a break barrel air rifle. “The new Benjamin Trail rifles drive 30% more air into the chamber, resulting in speeds 55% faster than coiled spring powered airguns and double the effective range of simple gas piston powered guns,” said Jesse Caster, Product Manager. “The CBT is an adjustable two-stage trigger system that pulls smoothly and breaks clean. It’s the best break barrel trigger we’ve ever made.”

The new Benjamin Trail rifles are available in .177 and .22 and feature a rifled steel barrel, industry leading sound suppression, sling mounts, integrated Picatinny rail and include a CenterPoint® 3-9×32 mm scope with mounts.

The .22 caliber shoots up to 1200 feet per second (fps) with 26 foot pounds of energy (fpe) and is capable for turkeys and fox up to 40 yards. The .22 is available with a hardwood stock or a synthetic stock and has an MSRP of $350. It is also available with a Realtree® Xtra camouflage finish with an MSRP of $380.

HatsanUSA Inc.’s 125 Sniper Vortex Airgun Offers Long-Range Power And Accuracy With Reduced Recoil And Sound

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

125_Vortex_Snipercacfa2

HatsanUSA Inc. has released its highly innovative 125 Sniper Vortex. These high-velocity vortex air rifles allow users to shoot from long distances with serious power and precision. Not only are they perfect for pest control and target shooting, but they are sure to change the common misconception that airguns are nothing more than gimmick.

Available in .177cal (1250fps), .22cal (1000fps), and .25cal (750fps), these single-shot break barrel airguns use Hatsan’s advanced Vortex Gas Piston technology. This powerful system, completely built in-house, is designed to propel heavy weight lead pellets at incredible velocities by utilizing a pressurized gas piston in a break action style barrel.

The benefits of the Vortex Gas Piston System are extensive. Airguns fitted with this powerful system can remain cocked for long periods of time without causing any spring stress or damage to the gun itself. They can also produce more consistent power between consecutive shots and have longer lifetimes compared to conventional spring powered airguns. Additionally, gas piston power eliminates most vibrations created from the oscillation of heavy springs, thus providing users a shooting experience which is both quieter and smoother.

The 125 Sniper is also fitted with Hatsan’s Shock Absorber System (S.A.S.) that significantly reduces vibration, and an integrated sound moderator is fitted in the muzzle break. On the other end of these ambidextrous designed rifles is Hatsan’s TRIOPAD® butt system. This unique system utilizes a heavy-duty rubber recoil pad and three stock spaces to allow maximum recoil absorption with up to four different length of pull options. All of these advanced features work together to make the 125 Sniper Vortex one of the most quiet, yet powerful, airguns on the market.

All 125 Sniper Vortex models also feature Hatsan’s fully adjustable 2-stage Quattro Trigger system, soft rubber inlays on the forearm and grip for better feel and control, a scope rail mount, and a micro-adjustable rear sight and open front sight both with Truglo fiber optics. They include a 3-9×32 fully multicoated Optima scope and a Hatsan shoulder sling.

The MSRP of the 125 Sniper Vortex is $418.00

HatsanUSA Inc. Makes U.S. Debut With Tactical Style AT44-10 TACT Airgun

Monday, December 9th, 2013

AT44_10_TACT

Hatsan, known throughout the world as a premier airgun manufacturer, has entered the U.S. market with HatsanUSA Inc.. To mark its debut, the company has turned up the cool factor with its tactical style air rifle that is perfect for target shooting, pest control and anything in-between.

The AT44-10TACT is able to shoot high-density lead pellets with a muzzle velocity of up to 1070 feet per second, squashing the common misconception that airguns just aren’t that powerful. Available in three calibers – .177cal (1070fps), .22cal (970fps), and .25cal (870fps) – this tactical airgun is able to reach such powerful velocities by utilizing a Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) system. The PCP system incorporates a detachable 180cc air cylinder for 200 bar fill (3000 PSI) to shoot at incredible velocities with nearly zero recoil.

While the muzzle velocities of the AT44-10 TACT may be perceived as lower than other airgun manufacturers advertise, accuracy and energy upon impact are vastly superior. This is because Hatsan airguns are rated using heavier lead pellets while other manufacturers rate their airguns using lightweight alloy aluminum pellets. In fact, the use of alloy aluminum pellets in Hatsan airguns is not recommended, as their power can partially disintegrate lightweight pellets, greatly reducing their accuracy and effectiveness.

“Because of advancements in technology, people need to drop any negative, preconceived notions they have about airguns,” said HatsanUSA Inc. President and CEO Blaine Manifold. “The AT44-10 TACT is a great alternative to a low caliber rife. Not only does it have comparable power, but pellets are both readily available and inexpensive.”

Attention to power and accuracy are just the beginning of the AT44-10 TACT. This airgun looks and feels unlike anything else on the market. Its ambidextrous design features a removable telescopic stock, three Picatinny rails, a scope mount rail, and fitted sling swivels that allow users to accessorize their air rifle. It is fitted with soft rubber inlays on the forearm and grip for better feel and control, as well as Truglo fixed front and rear adjustable sights. It includes three detachable 10-shot rotary magazines for the .177cal and .22cal models and a 9-shot rotary magazine in the .25cal model.

Like all Hatsan airguns, the AT44-10 TACT is manufactured in Turkey with components that are nearly all made in-house, including a precision-rifled barrel made from high quality German steel, and a 2-stage fully adjustable Quattro Trigger. It also utilizes Hatsan’s patented Anti-Knock system, which prevents gas wastage when the rifle is knocked or bounced, and an anti-double pellet feed mechanism to prevent more than one pellet loading into the barrel.
