Air Guns For Sale
Pistols are interesting Air soft gun, but rifles are truly fascinating. This feeling is not unique among airgun or firearms enthusiasts. Pistols are convenient to use and fun, but when it’s time for serious shooting, a rifle is the only way to go.
This year, a trend has become increasingly obvious to everyone in the airgun world– PCP’s have come into their own. Along with PCP rifles, air archery is coming into its own as well. Here are the top 5 Umarex air rifles for the year 2022.
The .30 Caliber Gauntlet 30 – Air soft gun
The Gauntlet has been a huge hit in the Umarex catalog from the moment of its introduction. And the Gauntlet has been under continual development during its existence. With the introduction of the Gauntlet 2 about two years ago, the next logical step was for the platform to grow in caliber. The .30 caliber Gauntlet is that step.
Introduced in the spring of 2022, the .30 caliber Gauntlet PCP delivers big power and great accuracy downrange. WIth a 50 grain pellet, the .Gauntlet 30 will break the 100 ft-lb mark out of the box. Unlike the smaller caliber Gauntlets, the Gauntlet 30 does not feature any internal baffling but the barrel is threaded to accept aftermarket sound suppressors like those available from DonnyFL.
Despite its “new” status, the popularity of the Gauntlet 30 is undeniable. Get one while it’s in stock!
The AirSaber Air Archery Gun – Air blow gun
Though the concept has been on the market for several years, when Umarex introduced the AirSaber, we set the bar for both performance and value. With a retail price under $400 and the ability to throw an arrow well over 450 FPS, the single barrel AirSaber will impress the hardest to impress shooters and airgun power junkies.
Even though the AirSaber Elite 2X double barrel air archery gun was released earlier this year, the original AirSaber has been a very strong seller since its introduction.
The Gauntlet 2 .22 and .25 Caliber Rifles – Air soft gun
As alluded to earlier, the Gauntlet series was and is a huge Umarex success story. The original Gauntlets are still popular shooters, but when the Gauntlet 2 was introduced, those seeking impressive power to shoot heavier pellets were immediately pleased with the the current iteration of the Gauntlet. In .22 caliber, the Gauntlet 2 is regulated to 1900 PSI and the .25 caliber version is regulated at 2100 PSI. With a 24 cubic inch bottle that takes a maximum fill of 4,500 PSI, you can’t make a mistake with the Gauntlet 2
The Origin Family of PCPs – Gun air compressor
The bar to entering the PCP shooting game is, unfortunately, money. Buying a PCP is one thing, but getting the rifle filled with air is another thing altogether. Entry level electric pumps often cost double or triple the price of a rifle.
The cheaper option is to pair the rifle with a hand pump. While this does make for some physical exercise for the user, it does make the price threshold fall down to a much more affordable price range. The Origin kit solves this problem for shooters. This kit pairs a hard hitting and accurate rifle with a handpump and all for less than $400 retail.
Over time we discovered that there was demand for the Origin by itself since it was such a fantastic air rifle in its own right. Therefore, the .22 caliber Origin can be had in either the kit form or as a stand alone rifle. We’ve even introduced a .25 caliber version of the Origin, too.
The Hammer .50 Caliber Big Bore Rifle – Air soft gun
It’s not your grandad’s BB gun and it’s not what most people think of when they envision a air rifle. The Umarex Hammer is more like an air powered muzzle loading rifle. No spark, no powder, but, yes, an explosion of sorts launches a .510 diameter slug out of the barrel with serious muzzle energy.
Most 300 to 400 grain slugs easily make power in the 600 to 650 ft-lb range which is ideal for harvesting large game here in North America. It’s also just fun to sling a huge hunk of lead at a steel plate at the range. Firearm shooters will be intrigued. Trust me.
Glacier View School/MSBSD have launched a SAR program after teachers and volunteers from Glacier View School, Twindly Bridge Charter School and Kenny Lake School obtained SAR Basic Air Riflery Instructor certification. Funding for the program came from the local community and a grant from the NRA Foundation.
Using Umarex Embark rifles, the Student Air Rifle Program uses school-aligned units of study, teacher training, universal whistle commands, positive language, and standardized equipment to facilitate an introduction to the lifetime sport of target shooting to school-aged youth in grades 4-12.
“It has been a long road, but we are now building the foundation to train other instructors and spread this program across Alaska. We started teaching SAR by presenting a lesson on ‘Target Shooting Safety & Range Set-Up.’ The safety aspect will be carried through each step of training.

We will teach the basics of Olympic-style 10-meter air riflery, by engaging the students with the equipment and the ‘11 Steps to Air Riflery Success,’” Alaska SAR Coordinator and Glacier View teacher Johnny Kirby said. “Glacier View School has plans to implement SAR in the Physical Education class, growing to an after school club and from that build a competitive riflery team that will compete against other schools on a local, state and national level.
SAR has a foundational network in place that allows our small rural school to do that quite easily. Again, we are grateful, and would like to thank the NRA Foundation, the Student Air Rifle Program, the school administration, and the supportive community members that made this opportunity possible.”
At one point in my life there was no such thing as “Black Friday”. Well, there was, but it referred to the historical stock market crash in October of 1929 that decimated fortunes and sadly was the opening act of a very bad decade. Around 25 years ago a retail shopping phenomenon developed that would come to be known as “Black Friday”.
In the days before e-commerce was a thing, people actually got up at the crack of dawn to go shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Retailers seeking to out-sell their competition, opened their doors a little earlier each year, until it became unnecessary to set an alarm at all. The shopping would commence at midnight.

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s a common occurrence at these brick and mortar retail locations was violence. Not only would fights break out over limited quantities of featured products, but people would be injured just getting into the doors. Traffic would snarl on the streets around shopping centers, tempers would flare over parking spots, and overall, the experience left people like myself opting out of going shopping that day at all.
No discount was worth getting into a fender-bender, let alone a physical confrontation in order to score. And likely, with only a few in-stock items with the discount, going through the whole mess only to not save money buying that expensive item was just not worth it.

One could easily get all of their Christmas shopping air gun pistol done in the span of an hour when just a few years prior this same shopper could spend 3 hours in traffic just trying to get to the doors of his favorite retail shopping locations. But just as the Black Friday shopping trend rose to a peak, it also came Aown. Oh, it hasn’t gone away, but it is certainly nothing like it used to be only a few short years ago.
The more recent shopping trend is further taking the pressure of the post-Thanksgiving shopping rush and extending the holiday shopping season further into November. We have taken advantage of this recently developed freedom and extended our “Black Friday” specials throughout the month of November. Every Friday during November we are offering great savings opportunities for a wide variety of our products.
