Crosman Benjamin Fortitude Air Gun

The Benjamin Fortitude is poised to create a new generation of PCP shooters with an air rifle that marries some of the best features of the Benjamin line.

 The Benjamin Fortitude is poised to create a new generation of PCP shooters with an air rifle that marries some of the best features of the Benjamin line.

 As a regulated PCP you can expect long consistent shot strings, fueled by the Fortitude’s 3000 PSI regulated cylinder.  Taking advantage of the newest innovations from Benjamin, the Fortitude delivers up to 70 shots per fill on the regulator.  Pushing lead ammo at velocities up to 950 fps in .177 and 800 fps in .22.  All you need to do is fill your cylinder with air via the male quick disconnect fitting, load up the 10rd rotary mag, and hit the range blasting targets with stunning accuracy.   Benjamin knows that you don’t just want accuracy, you want stealth as well and the fully-shouded barrel keeps your shots backyard friendly.

 The Fortitude is set into an all-weather synthetic stock that keeps the rifle at a light 5.3lbs (unscoped).  An 11mm Dovetail allows you to mount your choice of optic and still maintain this light weight.  For those looking to take the Fortitude into the woods, the stock is fitted with swivel studs to mount a sling.

Umarex Hammer Air Rifle

Umarex Hammer Air Rifle with more than 700 ft-lbs of energy. That’s in the same ballpark as the .44 Magnum.

 Umarex USA designed and now manufacturing a .50 caliber air rifle called the Hammer. For those that think air rifles are just toys for for squirrels only, this rifle will launch a 550 grain lead slug at about 760 fps. That works out to be more than 700 ft-lbs of energy. That’s in the same ballpark as the .44 Magnum. Lighter loads go faster, of course. The 180 grain ARX projectile will hit about 1,100 fps.

 Umarex uses a straight pull bolt that needs only 2 pounds of cocking pressure. The air tank holds 4,500 psi of compressed air. The trigger pull is set at 3 pounds. The gun uses a Magpul pistol grip and has M-LOK attachment points for accessories.

 It is currently out of stock, but you can register here for an update when the rifle will be available.
