Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle Replica Coming To The SHOT Show
Umarex USA has announced that they will be introducing a new Ruger 10/22 air rifle replica at the 2019 SHOT Show next week. No photographs yet. When we have more information and photographs, we’ll let you know…
The company also has announced another new air rifle, to be shown at the show. This is the Umarex Synergis. The Synergis is a repeating air rifle with an underlever action. Again, no photos yet.
The only other airgun currently being mentioned by Umarex in its pre-publicity material is the Hammer big bore air rifle. This has been seen – in various forms – at previous SHOT Shows and so does not exactly count as “new news”.
In fact, 2019 has a very different feel from previous SHOT Shows in respect of pre-publicity announcements for new airgun products.
In previous years, there have been many product pre-announcements ahead of the show, some with considerable detail. But for the 2019 SHOT Show, things are very quiet. Yes, we have this mention of the Ruger 10/22 air rifle replica and the Umarex Synergis. Yes, we have some new versions of the Gamo Swarm 10-shot breakbarrel platform announced – as you can see here in HAM. But basically, that’s it so far.
Will the Ruger 10/22 air rifle replica and the Umarex Synergis be the only new airgun products announced at the 2019 SHOT Show? I doubt it. But the airgun industry is playing its hands uncommonly close to its chest this year.
Maybe there will be a last-minute rush of pre-show announcements? Maybe not.
Fortunately HAM Publisher Stephen Archer will be reporting live from the 2019 SHOT Show to bring you all the latest airgun news.
The 2019 SHOT Show show runs from January 22-25. However, there are some pre-show airgun-related events before that and we’ll bring you details of those, too.
So keep watching HAM for 2019 SHOT Show news from 20 January onwards. That way you’ll be able to know the whole story as it happens…
