FORT SMITH, AR (April 25, 2017) – Umarex USA announces its upcoming exhibition at the 146th NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits following high demand generated by its introduction of innovative new products at the most recent Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.

SHOT Show 2017 – Umarex Legends

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Umarex’s ‘Legends’ consists of full-auto blowback action bb guns patterned after iconic weapons, or as Umarex’s marketing puts it, “Designs that changed history”. Two of the guns in this line caught my eye, the M712, and the MP, which is also new for 2017.

The M712 is patterned after the M712 “Schnellfeuer” or “Fast Fire” C96 Mauser, which was capable of full-auto fire and sported a detachable magazine. Umarex’s bb version follows suit, featuring full metal construction, full-auto or semi-auto fire, and an 18-round detachable magazine, which also houses the CO2 cartridge needed to power the gun’s action.

The MP is patterned after the iconic MP40, and like the M712 above, features full metal construction and select fire. The MP’s action is powered by two 12g CO2 capsules which are housed in the 60-round detachable magazine. The MP comes complete with a folding stock and adjustable rear sight with fixed front post.

Umarex USA Partners With TACOMHQ for Axeon Optic Solutions’ Second Zero Product Lin

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

FORT SMITH, Ark. (January 15, 2017)—Umarex USA expands their Axeon Optic Solutions™ product line with a revolutionary new way for shooters to hit their long distance targets. Axeon’s new, patented Second Zero™ optical device will change the way hunters and AR shooters think about taking that 300+ yard shot.

Available in both rail-mounted versions for the MSR market and scope-mounted versions for the traditional hunting market, the Second Zero system allows any scope or optic to have two functional zeros with no manual manipulation of the reticle or red-dot. Utilizing a patented custom prism system, a rifle that is zeroed in at 100 yards can be on target at a second distance when the Second Zero system is engaged—without the need to compensate for bullet drop.

TACOMHQ and its president, longtime and highly respected optic developer, John Baker, have partnered with Umarex USA to bring the Second Zero to hunters and shooters worldwide. In addition to the stock Second Zero product line, TACOMHQ will continue to offer custom versions of the product to meet individual shooters’ needs through the TACOMHQ custom shop.

“We are excited about our partnership with Umarex USA. They have the strength to bring in sales and they’re well equipped in the areas of marketing, consumer understanding and distribution. Their new Axeon product line will debut at SHOT Show 2017 (Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show) with the Second Zero system, an affordable and extremely usable tool for all hunters and tactical shooters,” said TACOMHQ President, John Baker.

“Our acquisition of these and other assets assures that Umarex USA’s Axeon Optics brand will be a market leader through innovation,” said Richard Turner III, Umarex USA’s VP of Sales & Marketing. “We have tremendous respect for the innovation and commitment to performance that John and his TACOMHQ team have in developing optical products and we share these same approaches within Umarex.”
