Blaser USA introduces F16 series O/U shotguns
Only through the restless pursuit of perfection is it possible to create a perfectly balanced over/under shotgun with the lowest profile receiver on the market. The exceptionally low center of gravity makes the new Blaser F16 extraordinarily pointable and dynamic. Innovative development processes were used in the monocoque construction providing the ability to give the borders of the receiver a softened appearance much like a round body game gun and further benefits the shooter with a seamless transition between barrel and receiver. Aside from the intuitive pointability a newly developed tapered rib supports better peripheral vision and results in faster target acquisition. The Triplex bore design and the proven ejection ball system (EBS) borrowed from Blaser’s championship winning F3, allowing the shooter to focus on what is really important: Hitting the next target. With a crisp trigger pull of 3 pounds, 10 ounces, there is no delay between thought impulse and action. The Inertia Block System (IBS) adds to shooter safety and comfort by preventing the ability for the shotgun to fan fire or double.
From the clays field to favorite hunting area the F16 has become the new Gold Standard for others to measure against. The MSRP for the F16 game shotgun begins at $3,795 and the F16 sporting model begins at $4,195. All Blaser firearms carry a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.

New Umarex Havox Ammo expands maximum lethality
Umarex USA, a company on the forefront of innovation in outdoor products, has introduced what they believe is the most lethal airgun hunting ammunition ever created. The Umarex® Havox™ is designed to expand upon contact of soft tissue, immediately transferring massive energy into the intended target. The Havox line of smallbore airgun hunting ammunition is designed to expand 100% into six razor sharp cutting edges, creating a massive wound channel in the target. The wide razor sharp blades stay attached and maintain a large diameter to provide the greatest cutting surface throughout penetration. The Havox is fast, accurate, and certainly lethal. These Umarex pellets are machined of pure solid copper and specially drawn and tempered to deliver total energy accurately on target with a natural copper finish. Unequaled in terminal expansion and maximum energy dump into the target, the .177 Havox completely expands and travels over three-inches in synthetic gelatin. The .22 and .25 travel 15% further consecutively. The Havox maintains accuracy standards at typical smallbore airgun-hunting distances of 20 to 30 yards and is usable in most air rifles chambered for the pellet’s caliber designation. Up to 10% lighter than lead, the lead free Umarex Havox accurately outperforms most lightweight alloy pellets offered for hunting. The .177 weighs 7 grains, the .22 10.9 grains and the 25 caliber measures 19.9 grains. 25 pellets will come in each package and will range in cost from $13.99 to $15.99 MSRP.
