Umarex® ARX® Ammunition represents the next generation of muzzleloading and airgun hunting technology. Precision-engineered at the pioneering PolyCase® Ammunition development lab, Umarex ARX ammo incorporates patent-pending innovation that enables extreme hunting performance. Constructed from an advanced polymer-copper matrix, the Umarex ARX SpeedBand™ and SpeedBelt™ bullets will revolutionize terminal performance in both muzzleloading and airgun hunting.
PolyCase ARX technology acts as a force multiplier in muzzleloader and airgun ammunition, simultaneously dispersing kinetic energy both forward and laterally. ARX non-expanding ammo provides maximum hydraulic displacement and terminal energy transfer to targets. This high velocity, flat-shooting projectile provides exceptional performance in mid and big-bore air rifles when combined with Umarex SpeedBand or SpeedBelt polymer sabots.
Umarex ARX Ammunition elevates pre-charged pneumatic air rifle performance into the 21st century with four of the most popular air rifle chamberings. The groundbreaking Umarex SpeedBand sabot was developed for use with Umarex ARX bullets in .357, .40 and .45 caliber while the base-style SpeedBelt sabot was designed for use with .50 caliber Umarex ARX ammo and performs flawlessly in both muzzleloaders and the new Umarex Hammer™.50 caliber big bore air rifle.
The polymer formulation of Umarex SpeedBand and SpeedBelt sabots creates a powerful seal in barrel lands and grooves, blocking the passage of air to swiftly drive the projectile down the barrel. Upon exiting the muzzle, captive air pressure on the sabot forces release of the high velocity, light-weight ARX ammo, which maximizes momentum and delivers un-paralleled terminal performance on target.

California Senate Bill 798 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee on March 26. This bill, if passed, prohibits, “…the sale, manufacture, transportation, receipt, or distribution of imitation firearms for commercial purposes,” unless, “…the entire exterior surface of the device is white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright blue, bright pink, or bright purple, either singly or as the predominant color in combination with other colors in any pattern, as provided by federal regulations governing imitation firearms, or where the entire device is constructed of transparent or translucent materials which permits unmistakable observation of the device’s complete contents, as provided by federal regulations governing imitation firearms.”

Police Minister Judith Collins announced this month that the Government planned to change the Arms Order to require anyone who bought or owned a pre-charged pneumatic PCP air rifle to hold a firearms licence.
Somehow I’ve managed to miss this story until now. It appears that the Customs and Border Protection guys seized some airsoft guns in Washington back in February and claimed that they were real machine guns disguised as toys. They turned them over to the BATF who agreed.
When a Freedom of Information Act request was filed, they provided information about a different case from 2004.
Mr Lamb, of Dundee, fears the SNP government will use the power – if granted – to ban all unlicensed air weapons.
His petition says: “This measure harms the legitimate sporting shooter and fails to address the real problem, that caused by unlawful use of airguns.
What? Use of gun control to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to criminals? Is that possible?

Yes, even airgun sports are not safe if our numbers and political power are dropped to a sufficient degree.
In Michigan, my 14-year-old son cannot purchase BBs for his air rifle.
