American Air Arms At Extreme Benchrest 2019
American Air Arms has been steadily growing its range of PCP air rifles. As is implied by the company name, these are completely designed and manufactured in the USA – from US-produced materials, wherever possible.
At this year’s Extreme Benchrest competition, a number of American Air Arms EVOL 22 air rifles were to be found down the firing line.
Last year’s Extreme Benchrest Pro Class winner Claudio Flores was shooting one, as we can see from our heading photograph, above.
AAA’s President, Tom Costan was out there too, making holes in paper at long range and scoring well…
Tom explained that his idea for AAA airguns is to make a really solid, heavy duty product that’s able to take a huge amount of use – for competition and hunting.
The AAA Slayer big bore guns were also performing well in the Production Big Bore Class. Terry Eanetta placed second using one, while Stephen Marsh (below) secured third place.
American Air Arms also had a demo range slot at EBR. This gave any shooter the opportunity to examine and try out the EVOL 22 and TAC 30 models. I tried one myself and found it very pleasant to shoot.
Tom also confirmed to me that Airguns of Arizona is carrying the EVOL Line, with the Slayer planned to be added in future. At first both companies will concentrate their efforts on the EVOL 22 mini and TAC 30 models, he said, to avoid being spread too thin by demand.
AoA received their first shipment of EVOL air rifles in September and they should be shown on the web site very soon, Tom continued.
So – with this development – we can expect to see EVOL air rifles become much more common among shooters. Look out for them at Extreme Benchrest 2020!
