Newington, NH -(AmmoLand.com)- The SIG SAUER line of new semi-automatic Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) air rifles and air pistols will be on full display in the SIG SAUER booth (# 5333) at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend, and, for those who want to shoot one, the Pyramyd Air airgun range is the place to be.
The SIG SAUER MPX air rifle will be available on this indoor range – located in booth # 2684 near the main entrance of the Kentucky Exposition Center – for NRA members to test throughout the weekend.
“The SIG MPX air rifle is a lot of fun to shoot whether for serious practice or family fun,” said Dani Navickas, product manager for the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “We hope many NRA members and their families will take advantage of this opportunity for hands-on time with our air rifle at the Pyramyd Air airgun range during the show. We will also have our full line of new CO2 ASP air rifles and air pistols on display in the SIG SAUER booth.”
These world-class CO2-powered pistols and rifles from SIG SAUER are a new breed of firearms for training and recreation, elevating airguns to a new level of performance and use. The introductory line of SIG SAUER high-performance ASP airguns includes CO2-powered SIG MPX and SIG MCX semi-automatic rifles in .177 and .22 (pellet-only) calibers, and P226 and P250 semi-auto CO2 pistols in .177 caliber. SIG SAUER ASP airguns not only look like the original guns, they are the same weight and have similar trigger pull. This makes them ideal for training with the added benefit of reduced cost and minimal noise. SIG SAUER is also offering a wide variety of ASP targets and pellet ammunition.
The Pyramyd Air airgun range opens at 2:00 pm on Thursday, May 19, at 8:00 am Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21, and at 9:00 am on Sunday, May 22. Admission is free and NRA safety officers will be on hand to help youths and others who might need assistance on the range.
