Little Rock, AR -(AmmoLand.com)- This week at the Arkansas State Capitol, the U.S. Marshals Museum presented Governor Asa Hutchinson with a limited edition U.S. Marshals Museum Colt Peacemaker.
Senator Jake Files, along with Representatives George McGill, Justin Boyd and Matt Pitsch, accepted the Umarex USA commemorative airgun on behalf of the Arkansas General Assembly.
“We were proud to partner with Umarex USA to produce these limited edition U.S. Marshals Museum Colt Peacemakers and honor the brave U.S. Marshals who have put their lives on the line to keep our nation safe,” said Jim Dunn, president and CEO of the U.S. Marshals Museum. “Today’s presentation is a small way to say thank you to Governor Hutchinson and the Arkansas General Assembly for their continued support of the U.S. Marshals Museum.”
In January 2015, Umarex USA produced 500 limited edition U.S. Marshals Museum Colt Peacemakers with a U.S. Marshal emblem on its grip. 10 of the 500 commemorative airguns were donated to the U.S. Marshals Museum for auction sales.
“We’re proud to have been able to provide a product for display from our Arkansas-based company, and it was an honor that one of our products could be used to promote the U.S. Marshals Museum and Fort Smith,” said Richard Turner, vice president of sales and marketing at Umarex USA.
