FORT SMITH, AR (July 22nd, 2021) – Umarex USA, Inc., a family-owned outdoor sporting brands company known for innovative shooting sports products, is now shipping the Umarex Origin .22 in a rifle-only configuration.
In response to popular demand from its rapidly growing fanbase, Umarex Airguns is now offering the Umarex Origin .22 as a stand-alone rifle in the U.S. The Origin was first introduced in 2020 as a kit that contained both the rifle and a 3-stage hand pump for filling the gun’s on-board air reservoir. This packaged combination offered tremendous value for shooters who were just entering the PCP (pre-charged pneumatic) precision air rifle arena.
“When we first introduced the Origin .22 with its Ever-Pressure Tank System, we included an airgun hand pump to create an all-in-one kit. By including an air source, it helped people that wanted to own and shoot high pressure air guns make the transition from traditional spring-powered pellet rifles,” said Justin “JB” Biddle, director of marketing. “It wasn’t long before we started hearing from shooters that they just wanted to buy the rifle without the pump because there’s a huge number of people who already have a high-pressure air source and were impressed by the rifle’s accuracy right out of the box.”
The .22 caliber Umarex Origin PCP rifle utilizes the Ever-Pressure Tank System, an innovative technology which can be filled with a hand pump or high-pressure air compressor—like the Umarex ReadyAir—in less than half the time and energy normally required by PCP rifles that have similar air capacity.
The Origin delivers stunning energy levels of 32 ft. lbs. with 11gr RWS Hobby pellets and 34 ft. lbs. with 14gr JSB Exact pellets, with velocities exceeding 1100 fps and 1052 fps, respectively. The Umarex Rotary Multi-Mag holds 10 rounds of .22 caliber pellets. A fully shrouded precision rifled steel barrel guarantees accuracy of 1 MOA at 40 yards. The simple side lever cocking action and combination Picatinny/11mm rail are features demanded by airgunners around the globe. The Umarex Origin .22 caliber air rifle can be filled with an airgun hand pump or with a specialized high-pressure electric air compressor.
The Umarex Origin .22 in the rifle-only configuration is priced at an MSRP of $329.99. Go to UmarexAirguns.com for more information.
