Fort Smith, Ark. (January 17th, 2019) – Umarex USA unveils the revolutionary Umarex® Synergis™—the first 12-shot repeating gas piston pellet rifle, during SHOT Show 2019 In Las Vegas, Nevada. The Umarex Synergis is the first gas piston under lever rifle to offer an in-line repeating action, fixed barrel, and removable magazine. The patent-pending Airflow Boost Technology™(AAT) with auto-loading probe mechanism automatically seats a pellet from the magazine into the chamber upon cocking and reaches 1000 FPS with lead pellets.
Its 12-round RapidMag™ Under Lever System combined with its patent-pending Airflow Boost Technology makes the Umarex Synergis the easiest, most convenient and technologically advanced .177 caliber pellet rifle available.
“Our engineering team has worked tirelessly to achieve all identified goals for this rifle. They’ve certainly exceeded each one,” said Steve Lamboy, Senior Director of Strategic Product Development. “First it’s a true repeater, providing 12 shots from a removable auto-indexing magazine. Second, it’s an under lever, meaning the fixed barrel and breech block are never out of line with the air cylinder as it would be if it were a break barrel. That means inherent accuracy. Third, its innovative cocking mechanism automatically advances the magazine and loads and seats a pellet into the breech chamber. Fourth, it achieves a velocity of 1,000 feet per second through our engineering collaboration on our new Airflow Boost Technology. And finally, we incorporated a full shroud to silence the rifle like you’d find on quality PCP air rifles, like the Gauntlet.”
“There’s not another gas piston repeating pellet rifle that’s as fast to shoot as the Umarex Synergis. It’s going to reinvigorate the pellet rifle market.” Said Richard Turner, President of Umarex USA, Inc. “It has functionality like never before seen in a pellet rifle, especially for one that retails for $169.”
Operating the Umarex Synergis is simple. Load the magazine, which received its style and functionality cues from the popular Umarex Gauntlet magazine. Pull down on the under lever and insert the magazine. When you return the lever to its original position under the barrel, the RapidMag System seats a pellet precisely into the breech. After you’ve shot the first pellet, just actuate the rifle’s under lever again, which advances the magazine and automatically inserts another pellet.
