ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 22, 2020) – Stoeger introduces its first Pre-Charged Pneumatics (PCP) air rifle with the XM1. The air rifle features a sleek Italian design with a sporty and distinctive look. The XM1 ensures the best performance for every shooting situation with high accuracy and ideal ergonomics.
Powered by an integrated, rechargeable 2,900 psi tank (200 BAR), the XM1 can shoot approximately 50 shots per charge. The air rifle can be charged with a hand pump or with an air tank with the included adaptor. Using alloy pellets, the air rifle boasts muzzle velocities of 1,200 fps (17 cal.) and 1,000 (.22 cal.). The removable, rotary magazine holds seven (.22 cal.) and nine (.17 cal.) pellets for quick follow-up shots on targets or small game. The Thridion Pro Adaptive Checkering on the bolt lever delivers a sure grip while chambering a pellet.
The thumbhole, synthetic stock features a design based on Stoeger’s “Human Tech Design” philosophy. Strategically-placed Pro Adaptive Checkering along the ergonomic stock provides a sure grip for virtually every shooting position. The XM1 takes ergonomics to the next level with the Multi Grip System that includes a standard and high cheekpiece and two different sized pistol grips. An adjustable trigger and buttstock pad with removable spacers provide a custom fit. To give shooters additional options to customize the air rifle, picatinny rails along both sides of the stock provide places to add accessories and store extra pellet magazines.
The XM1’s base model with a black, synthetic stock features fiber-optic sights and is chambered for .17 cal. pellets. A suppressed model with an included 4 x 32 scope is available in .17 cal. and .22 cal. models. Also available is a suppressed model with scope in Reatree EDGE camo chambered for .22 cal. pellets.
