Umarex Unveils New Airguns at SHOT Show
Umarex USA is excited to announce the new Umarex Airguns debuting at SHOT Show 2024. The airgun making the biggest splash - literally - will be the new FishR. Based on the successful AirJavelin frame, the FishR utilizes saltwater grade components to open the door to bowfishing for airgunners. Umarex is also bringing several new PCP models in 2024. The new Zelos offers a multitude of customization options for airgunners interested in everything from benchrest shooting to plinking. The Iconix is a new, affordable way to introduce shooters to PCP airgunning. While the proven Gauntlet lineup of rifles get upgraded with features that were most requested by shooters such as a side lever. The all-new Synergis Elite is an underlever with a unique breech design that prevents double loading. The 10–shot RapidMag magazines cut down on the time per shot.

In case you are looking for a leak on new stuff, I am sorry, but you will have to wait just a little bit longer. I know, such a disappointment.
