Crosman Introduces TR77 NPS Break Barrel Air Rifle

 

ROCHESTER, New York- Crosman Corporation, long known for innovative, high quality products for the shooting sports, has introduced the new, TR77™ NPS break barrel air rifle powered by Nitro Piston® technology. The TR77 NPS is a super quiet, high powered .177 caliber air rifle featuring a CenterPoint® 4x32mm precision scope and an ambidextrous, all-weather, synthetic stock.

According to Crosman Product Manager, John Alvord, “The Crosman TR77 NPS features ultra-quiet Nitro Piston technology, providing a quiet shot, smooth cocking, less recoil and quicker locking time.” Weighing in at less than 8 pounds, this powerful break barrel boasts 18 foot pounds of energy (fpe) “more than enough for your pest control needs or a fun day of precision target shooting,” said Alvord.

The TR77 NPS has a rifled steel barrel for greater accuracy, an adjustable, two-stage trigger and dovetail mounting rail. The all-weather stock is comfortable, lightweight and, behind the recoil pad, is a convenient storage area for ammo. The newly designed muzzle break offers a comfortable grip for cocking, while the TR77 NPS pistol grip and textured forend provide stability when using the artillery hold. “With velocities of up to 1,200 fps, this super quiet air rifle really sizzles,” Alvord says.

The TR77 NPS has an MSRP of $200, and will be available at retail in summer, 2013. Crosman Corporation will exhibit the TR77 NPS air rifle with its entire product line at the SHOT Show 2013 in Las Vegas from January 15-18.

Traditions Announces Traditions Ultralight

May, 2011…Old Saybrook, CT- Traditions™ Performance Firearms, known for their extremely accurate and dependable muzzleloaders, announces their new Pursuit™ Ultralight. Traditions™ has taken the well-known and dependable Pursuit series and combined it with the lightweight and balanced Ultralight series, bringing to the market the lightest muzzleloader in the world.

Traditions™ has addressed the problem of muzzleloaders being too heavy and created a revolutionary gun. Weighing in at a mere 5.15 lbs, the new Pursuit™ Ultralight has a Chromoly steel barrel which has long been recognized as the best barrel material for strength and accuracy among centerfires. Despite a lighter gun, none of the great features you have come to expect with Traditions™ have been sacrificed. The Pursuit™ Ultralight is Traditions’ mid-level, break action gun for hunters and shooters who are looking for a full-featured gun at a fraction of the cost. The 26″ barrel comes with Premium CeraKote Finish which provides a high-quality, long lasting coating that can handle anything Mother Nature can dish out. The Pursuit™ Ultralight also comes equipped with the Speed Load System for easier bullet loading and more consistent groups, Williams™ fiber optic sights, and the Accelerator Breech Plug™. The Pursuit™ Ultralight has a Dual Safety System which allows for two safeties: a trigger block safety built into the trigger guard and a secondary internal hammer block safety, which stops the hammer from engaging the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. The Pursuit™ Ultralight MSRP ranges from $295 to $435 depending on the model. Traditions™ has added many of the features requested by hunters and shooters and created a gun that is impressive in its own right. Traditions™ invites you to feel the difference for yourself.

Ruger Announces 77/357 Bolt Action Chambered in .357 Magnum

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the Ruger® 77/357™, a lightweight, bolt-action rifle chambered in the venerable .357 Magnum and fed via a rotary magazine.

The bolt-action 77/357 features a five-round rotary magazine and is offered in the Ruger All-Weather® configuration, which includes a durable, weather-resistant stainless steel barrel and receiver and a rugged, black composite stock. Although it is fitted with fully adjustable iron sights, the 77/357 also ships with patented Ruger scope rings, allowing a variety of sighting options for this lightweight (5-1/2 pounds), quick-handling rifle.

“The 77/357 is an effective tool for hunting medium-sized game – especially in heavy cover,” said Bruce Rozum, Chief Rifle Engineer at Ruger. “Bullet velocities of .357 Magnum ammunition increase significantly when fired out of the 77/357′s 18 1/2″ cold hammer-forged barrel. In testing, Hornady® 140 grain FTX® loads were clocked at over 1820 feet per second. Furthermore, the flush-fit, five-shot rotary magazine does not protrude at the rifle’s balance point and, unlike tube-fed rifles, the Ruger 77/357 can be readily loaded and unloaded,” he concluded.
