Washington, D.C. (May 25, 2021) – SCI is excited to announce that Umarex USA has signed on as a multi-year sponsor of SCI. The family-owned company based out of Fort Smith, Ark. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of airguns and airsoft accessories. With nearly 50 years of experience producing high-quality products, Umarex has a reputation for the finest airguns on the market and superior attention to detail.
In addition to selling its own lines of airguns, Umarex USA also offers high-powered air rifles from respected names, including Browning, Ruger and Hämmerli, and air pistols from Beretta, Colt, Glock and Smith & Wesson. From small-bore pellet rifles for small-game hunting to .25 and .50 caliber air rifles for larger game, Umarex USA has a wide selection of airguns and experts available to match customers with the right airguns for their needs.
Umarex USA offers paintball rifles, rubber ball training rifles and dust ball rifles under its T4E line for law enforcement. The online retailer also carries a variety of accessories and essentials for shooters such as ammo, magazines, CO2 cartridges, scopes, targets and cleaning kits. With a commitment to equipping individuals to enjoy and experience the outdoors, Umarex USA shares SCI’s core values.
“SCI is at the forefront in recognizing the fast-growing airgun hunting movement and we are excited to create a closer relationship with SCI and its members. The recent announcement of the addition of airgun hunting categories in the SCI record book opens up an entirely new, challenging, and exciting opportunity for hunters.” said Richard Turner, President Umarex USA, Inc. “Like SCI and its members, Umarex shares the passion for hunting, conservation, and appreciation of the outdoors and through our sponsorship we are eager for the SCI membership to learn more about airgun hunting and Umarex Airguns for their hunting adventures.”
Umarex Airguns such as the Umarex Hammer and AirSaber are made for the hunt. Ask for them at your local and online sporting goods dealers and retail locations around the world. Find more about airguns at UmarexAirguns.com.
Following the recent addition of a new airgun category for the SCI Record Book, this partnership’s timing is nothing short of ideal. Previously, hunters could submit airgun entries through the rifle category, but no dedicated category existed for this subset of sportsmen and women. SCI, recognizing the growing interest in hunting with airguns and recent legalization in several states, voted to update its guidelines to give non-members a new avenue to connect with the organization and enter the prestigious Record Book.
“We are excited to have Umarex support SCI and the work we do to defend hunters’ rights and promote wildlife conservation,” said W. Laird Hamberlin, SCI/F CEO. They are passionate to serve and support the hunting community and we welcome their support as a valued partner.”
Through this multi-year sponsorship, Umarex USA will help SCI deploy its hunter advocacy, education and conservation programs worldwide.
