You’ve got until March 19 to enter Airgun Shooter’s competition to win the Umarex 850 M2 Empire Kit C02 Rifle Combo, worth £489.95!
Mention ‘CO2’ and most people will think of pistols. Mention ‘rifle’ and many shooters will conjure up an image of a PCP or a springer.
But Umarex is here to give us more than a gentle reminder that there is another option – the CO2 rifle – with its latest example being the 850 M2 Empire Kit.
This particular bolt-action multi-shot is driven by an 88 gram CO2 cylinder, and this powerplant offers many of the benefits of a PCP, such as low recoil, low noise and a decent shot count, with the convenience of having a readily available power supply that doesn’t require the use of a pump or a trip to the dive shop to refill.
Just add one of these gas canisters and the M2 is ready to go out of the box, as the comprehensive Empire Kit includes both fibre-optic open sights and a Walther 3-9×40 scope and mounts, as well as a K3 Neo silencer and bipod, with the whole package being rounded off by a tin of pellets and some paper targets.
The Umarex 850 M2 is an upgraded version of the well respected 850 AirMagnum, the most obvious difference being the redesigned stock, which includes a removable cheekpiece for shooting with the included telescopic sight. It just snaps in place without the need for any tools, and means you can get good head and eye alignment behind the optic.
All you need to do to win this rifle combo is answer the following question correctly:
What size of CO2 cylinder is used to power the M2?
A: 88 gram
B: 88 grain
C: 88 kilogram
