Umarex Partners With Marshals Museum on Commemorative Airgun

Umarex USA said Wednesday that it has partnered with the U.S. Marshals Museum to offer a limited edition commemorative airgun of the Colt Single Action Army Revolver, also known as the "gun that won the west."

The gun, which will display a U.S. Marshals emblem in the grip and will be numbered consecutively one to 500, will be available to order "on a first-come-first-served basis" to dealers at a trade show in Las Vegas last this month. 

"There are many historical firearms highly desired as collectibles, but not many can afford to own one," Richard Turner, vice president of sales and marketing at Umarex USA, said in a news release. "The U.S. Marshals Commemorative not only gives the collector an opportunity to own a limited collectible replica airgun of the firearm dubbed 'Peacemaker' and 'Equalizer,' but it also helps us promote our nation's oldest federal law enforcement agency."

Umarex USA makes sporting and replica air guns. Its line of products includes paintball guns, pellet guns, air pistols and accessories. Umarex USA is owned by PW Group of Germany. Umarex has a plant in Fort Smith at Chaffee Crossing.

Officials broke ground on the $50 million, 50,000-SF U.S. Marshals Museum in September. It will sit on the banks of the Arkansas River in downtown Fort Smith.
