FORT SMITH, Ark. (Jan. 19, 2016) – Umarex USA introduced a new air rifle named the Throttle at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show today. The Umarex Throttle is the first air rifle to include the vibration reducing StopShox system.
“We set out to solve one of the most frustrating problems with powerful air rifles today–the amount of vibration and recoil,” said Richard Turner Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Umarex USA. “Modern pellet rifles powered by strong springs or gas pistons cause two recoils–one to the front and a second to the back. The Umarex StopShox works in conjunction with a floating stock design to effectively minimize the negative recoil vibrations that cause shooter frustration.”
StopShox is a patent-pending, innovative device specifically designed to absorb shock, vibration and recoil in air rifles. It works in conjunction with a floating action to create a unique combination that systematically reduces the shock created by a break barrel air rifle’s spring or gas piston power system.
The new Umarex Throttle is a powerful pellet rifle that incorporates the new StopShox system. The Throttle combines this new recoil absorbing innovation with the Umarex ReAxis gas piston, SilencAir 5-chamber noise suppressor and the Umarex LockDown mount. It is available in either .177 or .22 caliber with all of these smooth operating innovations making it ideal for target shooters and small game hunters alike.
The Throttle comes equipped with a unique, black, all-weather stock, automatic safety and a 3–9×32 adjustable objective scope. With all of the innovative technology included, the Throttle is a great value at an MSRP of $199.99.
