The Benjamin Fortitude PCP Air Rifle Is Available Now!
The Benjamin Fortitude PCP air rifle was first announced at the 2018 SHOT Show. Now, Velocity Outdoor (formerly known as Crosman Corporation) has announced that this much-anticipated model is now shipping in .177 and .22 calibers.
HAM will be bringing you more details next week, but for today here’s the basics…
Velocity Outdoors says that the Fortitude is packed with the most highly desired features and technologies that demanding air gun consumers will appreciate. This includes a regulator that delivers up to a claimed 90 shots per fill at up to 950 FPS in .177. In .22 caliber, the max is 800 FPS.
These are the maximum velocities with lead pellets. The FPS will obviously be even higher with lighter alloy pellets.
The regulator provides the benefit of consistent velocities from the first trigger pull to the last, says Velocity Outdoors.
This regulator is built directly into the 3000 PSI High Pressure Air tube. It controls the output air pressure for shot-to-shot consistency. Velocity Outdoors says this makes the Fortitude a great choice for backyard plinking, target shooting, pest control and small game hunting.
“Our consumers told us loud and clear that getting a high shot count without sacrificing speed and power is one of the most desired benefits for a PCP gun,” said Philip Guadalupe, the Product Manager. “We are very excited to get this product in the hands of airgunners and let them experience the Fortitude for themselves.”
The Benjamin Fortitude PCP air rifle is a multi-shot repeater that uses interchangeable 10-shot rotary magazines for bolt-action firing.
It features a lightweight all-weather ergonomic stock and will be available at an exceptional low price of only $299.99 MSRP.
