Umarex SurgeMax Offers The First Integrated Rail Platform
Umarex USA today introduced the Umarex SurgeMax – the first break barrel air rifle to incorporate a fully integrated optic mounting rail.
Umarex explains that this platform was explicitly developed to make scope mounting easy and to reduce two of the greatest frustrations to scoped air rifle shooting–scope movement and vibration.
“When asking service techs that answer calls and emails about air rifles what the number one question is – it’s how to mount a scope so it won’t move,” said Glenn Seiter, Consumer Services Manager at Umarex USA.
Richard Turner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing added, “The Nucleus Rail is our answer. It provides the shooter a Picatinny rail as an easy platform for mounting a scope. Plus it gives the air rifle an entirely new look. It makes it modern, and dare I say it, tactical.”
The new Umarex SurgeMax is the first air rifle to incorporate the Nucleus Integrated Rail Platform. The Nucleus Rail is incorporated into the stock of the SurgeMax. The manufacturer says that it was engineered to combine the technology of a Picatinny Rail with a sound and vibration absorbing insulating sheath. The external vibration and sound generated by the action created by the SurgeMax is absorbed and distributed throughout the rifle preventing adverse reactions to the scope.
The new Umarex SurgeMax is a .177 caliber pellet rifle. In addition to the Nucleus Rail it utilizes an Umarex Turbo Nitrogen Technology (TNT) Piston to provide a smooth and consistent cocking effort. The SurgeMax has a claimed maximum muzzle velocity of 1200 fps with lead-free pellets.
The SurgeMax has a modern, all-weather, ambidextrous thumbhole, synthetic stock. Umarex claims that it is set apart from all other rifles on the shelf by the Picatinny platform incorporated into the Nucleus Rail. It comes equipped with an automatic safety and a 4×32 adjustable objective scope. Fiber optics sights are also installed.
The Umarex SurgeMax air rifle is designed to make scope mounting easy had has an MSRP of $149.99.
