First Look: Umarex Throttle Air Rifle

First Look: Umarex Throttle Air Rifle

The new Throttle air rifle from Umarex features the company's innovative Stopshox anti-recoil system. The rifle also features a SilencAir 5 chamber noise dampener to suppress noise.

The rifle is powered by the ReAxis gas-powered piston system that works off a 35-pound single-shot break-barrel cocking system. The Throttle comes in both .177 caliber and .22 caliber. Muzzle velocity with the .177 caliber pellet is measured at 1,200 fps with an alloy pellet, while a .22-caliber alloy pellet measured a muzzle velocity of 1,000 fps.

Both models weigh 8.3 pounds and come with five-pound trigger pulls. Overall length is 45.3 inches and barrels measure 15.9 inches long. Length of pull on both models was measured at 14.8 inches.


Each rifle comes with an ergonomic all-weather synthetic stock with a rubber recoil pad. The rifles feature a metal Picatinny rail above the action, and each gun comes with a 3-9x32 AO airgun scope with adjustable parallax. The air guns feature rifled barrel accuracy and an automatic safety.


Both models of the Umarex Throttle air rifle will be available in May 2016 at a suggested retail price of $199.99.
