Umarex Gauntlet SL22 And SL25 Now Available

The new Umarex Gauntlet SL22 and SL25 are now available and shipping from Pyramyd.

The SL22 and SL25 are the latest in a progressive series upgrades to the successful Gauntlet platform. The original Gauntlet was a price/performance-busting package that was developed into the Gauntlet 2, primarily with a different stock and more power from a higher regulator pressure.

Now the Gauntlet 2 has been improved with a sidelever action. “SL” stands for Side Lever. the SL22 is the .22 caliber model, the SL25 in in .25.

The .30 caliber gun was the first to receive the side lever action. HAM readers found out about this back in December 2023. Now sidelever cocking is available on the smaller calibers also.

The Umarex Gauntlet SL22 and SL25 models have also gained the larger, 24 Cubic Inch HPA tank from the SL30 model. Together with a 4,300 PSI fill pressure, this gives an increased number of shots at greater power than the previous version.

Maximum Muzzle energy is now up to 33 Ft/Lbs in .22 caliber and 51 Ft/Lbs in .25 cal.

The .30 caliber model is rated at 99 Ft/Lbs, although HAM testing showed that can be exceeded. We achieved 110 Ft/Lbs when shooting 49.5 Grain Daystate Howler slugs.

One other slight difference is that the SL22 and SL25 have a Flat Dark Earth stock. The color of the .30 cal stock is Olive Green.

All models are shipped with two rotary magazines and a single shot tray.
