On the heels of its AirSaber, Umarex has announced another air archery product for 2020: the AirJavelin. Using 88-gm. CO2 cartridges and a patent-pending pre-charged vale system, the AirJavelin launches 170-gr. carbon arrows at over 300 fps, delivering over 34 ft.-lbs. of energy—enough to harvest almost any small game or predator in North America. Designed with a wide range of consumers in mind, the stock is adjustable to fit children and adults, while both sides of the stock are equipped with M-Lok slots for a sling or other accessories. For sighting, the AirJavelin boasts open sights, though a long Picatinny rail on top means a red-dot sight or scope can easily be added. Finally, a 2X12-gm. CO2 adapter, for shorter shooting sessions, is available for the 3.9-lb. arrow launcher. For more information, check out umarexusa.com.
