This report covers:
Today we look at the Umarex Strike Point multi-pump pistol. I overlooked this pistol at the SHOT Show this year, or if I did see it I got distracted soon after. Here is a brand new multi-pump that wants to play in the budget class. They are going up against the Crosman 1377 that is firmly entrenched. The Strike Point is several dollars less, so this will be an interesting launch.
I don’t think this will be resolved by the price. At this level both companies are almost giving them away. This will revolve around features and performance. I don’t want to compare the Strike Point to the 1377, but some things will obviously have to be said.
