Umarex Airguns Releases the Origin .25 PCP Air Rifle
The Umarex Origin .25 PCP air rifle is a larger-caliber version of the air rifle that was introduced in 2020.
In our comprehensive review of the .22 caliber Origin, the HAM Team considered that this is a game-changing product that will revolutionize the entry level PCP market. It was an easy Gold Award winner!
The new .25 caliber version combines all the benefits of the .22 cal version but adds more power. Make that a lot more power!
In fact, Umarex tells HAM that the .25 caliber Origin can provide Muzzle Energies up to 50 Ft/Lbs. That’s a remarkable punch for an air rifle that’s so easy to fill with a hand pump!
The Origin was originally available in a bundle with a hand pump. However Umarex later released it without a pump. The new .25 caliber model is not bundled with a hand pump either. However, all three configurations remain available.
The manufacturer claims that the Origin can be fired after as few as 13 strokes with a hand pump. The HAM Team certainly found this to be true when we tested the .22 cal version and see no reason why that should not also be so for the .25 cal gun. However more strokes will definitely give higher power levels.
Of course, all Origins can also be filled from an HPA tank or using an electric pump. A hand pump is not your only choice.
All Origins have sidelever cocking and fill to a maximum pressure of 3,625 PSI. The .25 caliber version has an 8-shot magazine. There’s a manual safety and Picatinny rail built into the breech for scope mounting.
.22 caliber Origins are available now. The twenty-five should be shipping in April, 2022.
