    For the first day post on airgun news at the 2016 SHOT Show, we have some overall photographs of the show, together with more detail on a couple of significant announcements from Crosman.

    One is that Remington is now out of the airgun business – Crosman will be selling Remington-branded airguns in future. This sounds like a re-run of the previous, short-lived arrangement, whereby Crosman sold Remington airguns a few years ago. It will be interesting to see how this works out going forward…

    There’s also a “new” low cost PCP air rifle, the Benjamin Maximus. This is basically a synthetic stock version of the long-running Discovery – the big news is that the MSRP is now just $199.99 – a price point the will make it very attractive in encouraging new PCP air rifle shooters.

    And yes, there is a new Air Arms PCP. The Galahad is an attractive bullpup gun that’s based on the S410/510 platform. I’ll be there tomorrow to find more information, but here’s a link to the separate story published in Hard Air Magazine earlier today.

        Just when I decided on a Vulcan,  this comes along to instill doubt on my choice.
      Sorry Vulcan,  you’re back on the undecided list,  I need to learn more about the Galahad.

    I’ll be checking these out today and will publish the news in the HAM Day 3 Report. But I’m guessing the Galahad’s not going to be cheap – maybe approaching $2K?

    I’ll be seeing the Ataman guns today, I hope. There’s just so many guns and so little time!

    I hope to see more beginners pick up the Maximus. Glad they are making this sport more accessible  to newcomers. This is how the sport grows :). I think we should be able to see more PCPs in retail stores like Walmart and sport stores. All i see are springers :( advertising their 1000 fps…

    This Benjamin Maximus looks like a great option for people getting into the sport!  I know a few guys that are pretty excited about the news.  They have been coming to me for a long time asking questions and really wanting to get into the sport but they just don’t have the funds to do so.  This is good!
