The SHOT Show 2017 announcements are pouring out in droves, from all corners. An intriguing announcement in the airgun world comes from HatsanUSA, which is launching its first-ever semi-automatic air rifle in Las Vegas.

The airgun, named the BullMaster, is a new semi-auto Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) air rifle with a bullpup design. It will be available in .177 and .22 calibers.

"Our customers have been asking us to release a semi-auto bullpup for quite some time and with the BullMaster, HatsanUSA is delivering in a big way," said Blaine Manifold, President of HatsanUSA. "For us, the key feature is that the semi-auto action is gas operated, as opposed to electrical. This delivers greater reliability and longevity."

The BullMaster features a detachable, rotary magazine (14-shot capacity for the .177, 12-shot capacity for .22) and each rifle ships with three magazines. Carrying slots have been built into the stock for storing spare magazines. A 500cc volume air bottle is mounted to the forearm of the rifle, and two air cylinders are included. The barrel is full shrouded, precision rifled and choked for optimal shot count.

The entire package ships with an MSRP of $1,399.99.
