    Just found out that the Gauntlet has been pushed back to August. Just cancelled my order from AGD that I placed in January. What a bunch of hogwash about it being out in April or May. They probably can’t get it to perform as advertised. They lost one customer today wonder how many will be lost?  Probably just as well, I pre-ordered a Kral in January also and what a POS that turned out to be. Again just my humble opinion.

    Too bad…
    I wish companies were more lenient on their release dates.  Sorta feel like the Impact was rushed to market when it should’ve had a couple more months of testing and production.
    If Umarex said middle of 2017 or Q3 that would give them plenty of time to get things right in case of production issues.

    Any idea when the Gauntlet .25 or the Hammer will be avaliable?  And I agree about advertising realistic dates.

    Messages conveyed during SHOT Show were based on what I was told and I had no reason not to believe. Our quality manager is inspecting this week (week of Aug.1). IF all checks out well, I expect some to roll in to our facility first part of September. If not, then I don’t know. The last 5 quality samples we have shoot as expected and previously advertised. I’m confident we’re delivering the product as hyped. As for realistic dates… I hear you. Please don’t “shoot” this messenger. ~JB

    I am interested in both the Hammer and the Gauntlet…any news on the Hammer?  Was slated to be released at the end of August. Any info would be appreciated!

    msurf;  the Umarex Hammer went back into R&D after discovering a hiccup in a mechanical portion of the design in terms of longevity. That has been worked out and the current prototype has entered testing again. Obviously August is off the table. I’m sorry that I’m unable to provide anything further. ~JB

    ThisGuy; There is a good chance a small allotment will arrive in Fort Smith approximately first week of September, barring any unforeseen logistical issues. ~JB
