NEWINGTON, N.H., (April 30, 2018) – The new SIG SAUER ASP20 break barrel air rifle, 1911 We The People BB Pistol and X-Five ASP Air Pistol will be among the many high-performance airguns on display in the SIG SAUER booth (#6220) at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas this weekend. Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the highly anticipated ASP20 break barrel air rifle features the airgun industry’s most advanced trigger system and delivers down-range power and accuracy with the lightest cocking effort in its class, making it ideal for hunting small game. This is the first SIG SAUER airgun to be built at SIG SAUER’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in New Hampshire and many of the company’s firearms technologies were used in the design and production of this impressive break barrel air rifle.
“Airguns are excellent training tools and a lot of fun to shoot, and we welcome NRA members and their families to the SIG SAUER booth to check out our latest offerings like the 1911 We The People BB Pistol, X-Five ASP pellet pistol and ASP20,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The ASP20 is unique – a true game changer in the break barrel market with its unrivaled trigger system and GlideLite™ cocking mechanism which cocks the ASP20 at 33 lbs. versus the standard 48-52 lb. cocking rate typically found in break barrels in this power range. We are also offering it with a SIG SAUER Whiskey3 ASP 4-12×44 Adjustable Objective riflescope.”
NRA members who are eager to get in a little target practice during the weekend can visit Pyramyd Air’s indoor airgun range in Ballroom C of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center where the SIG SAUER MPX ASP air rifle will be available to shoot.
The Pyramyd Air range is open from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.
