UMAREX SPORTWAFFEN GMBH & CO. KG
Current manufacturer of Umarex airguns, in addition to private label airguns sold under the Beretta, Browning, Colt, Hämmerli, Heckler & Koch, Magnum Research Inc., Makarov, RWS, Smith & Wesson, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc., Umarex and Walther names, located in Arnsberg, Germany. These airguns are imported and distributed in the United States beginning 2006, by Umarex USA located in Fort Smith, AR. UMAREX was founded in 1972 as the "UMA Mayer & Ussfeller GmbH" first manufacturing tear-gas and signal pistols and began manufacturing air rifles beginning in 1984. After acquiring Reck Sportwaffen Fabrick Karl Arndt, the company was reorganized under the UMAREX name. UMA was first reorganized as UMARECK and then as UMAREX. The success story began in 1978 with the introduction of the RECK PK 800 tear-gas and signal pistol, a perfect replica of the renowned Walther PPK. Today UMAREX is Europe's largest importer of air rifles, marketing brands such as Crosman, Marksman, and Norica and at the same time is the world's largest maker of replicas. Famous makers such as Smith & Wesson, Colt, Beretta, FN Browning, Magnum Research Inc. and Walther have awarded UMAREX licenses to construct tear-gas/signal guns and CO2 weapons.
Umarex is the present owner of Walther. Umarex does not sell directly to the general market, and the various private label models produced are listed under their respective trademark names. Please refer to the Beretta, Browning, Colt, Hämmerli, H&K, Magnum Research Inc., Makarov, RWS, Smith & Wesson, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc., and Walther listings in this text.
