Air Venturi Debuts Bullpup Avenger

Monday, December 27th, 2021

It’s not a Red Rider BB Gun with a compass in the stock, but considering how much some of you guys love bullpups, I thought this was worth a share.

Solon, OH — Air Venturi is excited to announce the launch of the Bullpup version of its wildly successful Air Venturi Avenger PCP Air Rifle.

“After the initial success we had with the synthetic stock Avenger rifle, we listened to the customer feedback and the consensus was clear that they wanted a wood stock version, and they wanted a Bullpup” explained Air Venturi President, Val Gamerman. “We were happy to launch a wood stock version of the rifle early in 2021, but our real excitement and focus has been on this Bullpup version.”

The Bullpup offers the same fantastic performance as the rifle, but in a much more compact package. Shaving nearly 10” off of the overall length and coming in at just 33” from muzzle to buttpad, the Avenger Bullpup offers increased maneuverability without sacrificing any of the fan favorite attributes the rifle versions are known for. “Another change we know customers will love is a new polymer that has been used to create the Bullpup stock, it has a higher quality look and feel to it compared to the original synthetic stock on the rifle” says Gamerman.

Talking about the stock, users will find a number of unique enhancements built into the Avenger Bullpup. Two magazine storage slots in the underside of the stock keep your magazines secure and easily accessible when they’re not in use. A new tool-less adjustable buttpad can be easily manipulated as needed by the shooter. Additionally, a four position adjustable cheek piece further enhances the shooting experience. For those that want to accessorize the bullpup, there are three picatinny accessory rails at the fore-end of the stock so bipods, lights, lasers or other attachments can be added.

At the heart of this PCP is an externally adjustable regulator and externally adjustable hammer spring. These allow the user to customize the Avenger’s performance to fit their needs. Achieving speeds over 1000 fps in .177 caliber and over 900 fps in .22 and .25 caliber, the Avenger packs plenty of power. The trigger can be adjusted to the shooters liking as well. Mounting your optics is achieved via a picatinny rail that is nearly 10” long.
