New SIG SAUER Airguns on Display at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas
Visitors to the 2018 NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Dallas will be able to see three new SIG SAUER airguns. These are the ASP20 break barrel air rifle, 1911 We The People BB Pistol and X-Five ASP Air Pistol.
That’s a CAD (Computer Assisted Design) rendering of the ASP20’s revolutionary trigger mechanism in our heading photograph, above.
They will be among the many airguns on display in the SIG SAUER booth (#6220) this weekend.
Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the highly anticipated ASP20 features the airgun industry’s most advanced trigger system, claims the manufacturer. SIG SAUER also says that it and delivers down-range power and accuracy with the lightest cocking effort in its class, making it ideal for hunting small game.
The ASP20 models are the first new SIG SAUER airguns to be built at SIG SAUER’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in New Hampshire. Many of the company’s firearms technologies were used in the design and production of this impressive break barrel air rifle.
“The new SIG SAUER airguns are excellent training tools and a lot of fun to shoot, and we welcome NRA members and their families to the SIG SAUER booth to check out our latest offerings like the 1911 We The People BB Pistol, X-Five ASP pellet pistol and ASP 20,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division.
“The ASP20 is unique – a true game changer in the break barrel market with its unrivaled trigger system and GlideLite cocking mechanism which cocks the ASP20 at 33 Lbs. versus the standard 48-52 Lb. cocking rate typically found in break barrels in this power range. We are also offering it with a SIG SAUER WHISKEY3 ASP 4-12×44 Adjustable Objective riflescope.”
