Ask any serious airgunner to name some of the finest airgun makers in the industry and Rapid Air Weapons (RAW) is more than likely going to be in the mix. And now, thanks to a partnership with AirForce Airguns - another high-quality, U.S. airgun manufacturer - one of RAW’s most sought-after pre-charged pneumatic air rifle designs is available without customers having to wait weeks or even months to get their hands on one of these beauties.
Handmade in America, the widely acclaimed RAW HM1000x LRT (Long Range Target) pre-charged pneumatic air rifle achieves the kind of precision, reliability and consistency that have come to characterize the iconic RAW name.
The HM1000x’s factory high-power tune delivers muzzle energies of up to 50 foot-pounds (in .22, using JSB 25.39-grain pellets) and 60 foot-pounds (in .25, using JSB King Heavy 33.95-grain pellets). Its fully regulated PCP power plant ensures consistent performance from the first shot to the last and the 480cc carbon fiber bottle packs enough capacity to put up to 50 rounds downrange per fill.
It uses a 12-shot rotary magazine and features an adjustable, match-grade target trigger with an added safety catch. RAW also had the good sense to offset its robust muzzle shroud to provide more sound suppression without requiring shooters to use taller scope mounts.
The RAW HM1000x LRT delivers elegant form along with precise function by integrating all this industry-leading hardware into a richly appointed, black laminate stock. An adjustable cheek rest and rubber butt pad allow for a truly custom shooting experience. The stock is checkered and the forend features five M-Lok slots for attaching accessories like bipods and Q.D. attachments. As an added bonus, the forestock’s underside is flat to provide bench shooters with an ultra-stable point of contact.
Each RAW HM1000x LRT is hand built and individually tested before leaving the factory and is billed by RAW as “the most accurate pre-charged pneumatic air rifle made in the USA... capable of sub 1-inch groups out to 100 yards.” It’s designed for everyone from serious plinkers and hunters to field target and benchrest competitors demanding the highest levels of performance from their air rifles.
The RAW HM1000x LRT PCP air rifle carries on RAW’s legendary legacy and USA-made heritage. It delivers the accuracy, consistency and precision serious shooters demand and is now more accessible than ever.
