Throwing Down The Gauntlet
On the latest installment of Rossi’s Reviews, Rossi is sending pellets down range with 0.25” caliber Umarex Gauntlet PCP Air Rifle. To start the review Rossi fires 24 shots at 100 yards while monitoring the fps for all 24 shots. The shots measured from 922 fps to 866 fps at the end of the group. Much to our surprise, the Gauntlet shot faster than advertised, it’s advertised at 895 fps. Rossi finished up the review taking shots at various field targets while showcasing the Gauntlet’s accuracy. The Umarex Gauntlet is an unbelievable gun, it’s accurate and consistent. It’s a great entry level gun that comes in at an affordable price in $299.99. This fantastic air gun can be found at Pyramid Air!

PCP airgunners long for affordable guns that are consistent as well as powerful, and Umarex has answered the call!
The Gauntlet PCP repeater that balances tremendous shot strings, with incredible power and accuracy all for a competitive price. With the onboard regulator, the Gauntlet uses less air; improving accuracy, and the amount of shots per charge on its 3000 psi tank. Once the pressure is low, you can either refill the tank using the standard Foster quick connect fitting or simply unscrew the tank with the included pressure release key to switch out your tank. As long as the pressure gauge is in the green, your shots will stay consistent. Umarex tested both .177 (7.9 grain) and .22 (14.3 grain) lead pellets, achieving 60(.22) or 70 (.177) shots on a single fill! With a velocity of 1000 fps in .177 and 900 fps in .22, the Gauntlet has no problem sending lead downrange in a hurry.
Each caliber features a single shot tray and a 10 round rotating magazine so you can spend less time reloading and more time taking rapid-fire bolt-action shots. The fully-moderated barrel quiets your shots, making it a perfect platform for blasting away at backyard targets or eliminating pests. Its all-weather synthetic stock comes with integrated studs for the addition of a sling for convenient carrying in the field. A standard dovetail mount is ready for mounting the optics system of your choice.
