Stoeger Industries has expanded their PCP line with the new XM1 Bullshark. Its groundbreaking bullpup configuration combined with an integrated suppressor, virtually no recoil, and Olympic-grade accuracy (using premium pellets) delivers a whole new level of compact handling, maneuverability, and performance. Adjustment features include recoil pad spacers, cheek pieces, and grips to ensure a custom fit, and advanced ergonomics provide optimal shooting comfort. A two-stage, adjustable trigger enhances accuracy. Picatinny rails are located on the top and side for optics and lights. 

Each XM1 Bullshark comes with two rotary magazines available in .177 or .22 caliber. The Interchangeable pistol-grips with PROADAPTIVE CHECKERING enhance the fit by adding or reducing palm swell for that custom feel. The XM1 Bullshark also includes a military-style front vertical grip for added control and maneuverability or use the flush-mounting plate as desired.

Powered by an integrated, rechargeable 2,900 psi tank (200 BAR), the XM1 Bullshark can shoot approximately 50 shots per charge. The air rifle can be charged with a hand pump or an air tank (adapter included). The air rifle boasts muzzle velocities of 1,200 fps (.177 cal.) and 1,000 (.22 cal.) using alloy pellets. The removable rotary magazine for the .22 cal. holds seven pellets while the .177 cal. version holds up to nine for quick follow-up shots on targets or small game. The onboard air reservoir allows multiple shots to be made at consistent velocities between air charges – not pumping between shots. Step into the future of airguns with the XM1 Bullshark by Stoeger.
