SHOT Show 2020 – A new way to hunt: the Umarex AirSaber PCP air archery rifle uses compressed air to shoot a 23-inch arrow, with enough power to score a clean kill with most big game
Described by the Company as being "among the fastest, big game lethal archery hunting devices available", the Umarex AirSaber rifle generates more speed and power than most crossbows while being safer and easier to operate.
Filled to a maximum of 3,625 PSI and firing full sized arrows, this high-pressure air archery rifle delivers an arrow at over 450 FPS / 137,16 meters-per-second, generating in excess of 165 foot-pounds (229,13 Newton-Meter) of energy. Plus, its volume of air provides up to 20 shots with the impact necessary for any ethical big game hunt, right up to the coveted cape buffalo.
The convenience of its bolt action firing mechanism, and comfortable rifle platform means anyone, regardless of size or strength, can shoot the AirSaber. The lack of strings and cords and smooth operating cocking bolt that can be easily de-cocked make it convenient for concealed hunting blinds and treestand use.
The carbon fiber arrows made specifically for the Umarex AirSaber have straight flight fletching and stabilize quickly, giving shooters an increased range for any game animal. The 23-inch (58,4 cm), 376-grain carbon-fiber arrows are equipped with a 100-grain field tip and threaded for the acceptance of aftermarket broadheads. Shooters should be wary of "robin-hooding" arrows at distances under 30 yards and can expect groups of sub two-inches at 70 yards (5 cm groups at 64 meters).
The Umarex AirSaber features an olive drab green synthetic stock with a Picatinny rail system for mounting the included Axeon Optics Scope and aftermarket accessories like a bi-pod and a quiver. Each AirSaber rifle comes from factory with three Umarex Arrows with Straight Flight technology and field tips, and an Axeon 4×32 mm scope with custom Air Archery reticle that offers aim points from 20 to 70 yards (approximately 18 to 64 meters).
