Throwing Down The Gauntlet

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!

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.

Umarex threw down the gauntlet for a PCP that’s accurate, consistent, and affordable. What more could you ask for?

Hunting Rats with an Airgun | Rat Wars 2018

On this episode of American Airgunner, Rossi joins the war on pest control and competes in the 2018 Air Gun Rat Wars.  The 2-day competition was comprised of 4 teams, Innnerloc’s Out There, Urban Nocks, Umarex Airguns, and American Airgunner. Teams were scored on the heaviest rat, longest rat, heaviest total catch, nest treasure, and most rats.  Each team had 2 shooters and a guide that were equipped with Umarex Gauntlet air guns and Axeon Laser Scopes. The guns have been dialed in from 10ft to 30ft for those hard to reach rats.

This is the 3rd annual competition that was initiated to bring an element of fun to handle a nuisance population of rats that decimate farmers feed and machinery. Join Rossi and his crew as they set to reduce the rat population and have a few laughs.
