Announces Auction of Navy SEAL Foundation Edition
BLOOMFIELD, New York -- The world leader in air guns has teamed with the leader in AR accessories to create the Benjamin Armada, the premier AR-compatible PCP Air Rifle featuring the official Magpul M-LOK modular accessory system. The first unit will be auctioned off on GunBroker.com, October 20-November 2 with the proceeds going to support the Navy SEAL Foundation.
“The Armada is the first commercially available PCP rifle that brings the same breadth of modularity and user configurability that is enjoyed by the AR community,” says Jennifer Lambert, VP Marketing for Crosman. “By designing the rifle to Mil-Spec dimensions for the grip and stock interfaces as well as implementing the M-LOK interface system, the Armada becomes a platform that gives shooters an infinite range of possibilities to customize their air rifle with the AR parts and accessories of their choice.”
The .22 caliber Armada is built in America and delivers velocities of 1000 FPS with 32 foot pounds of energy, making it an ideal small game rifle and target shooter. It includes a 10-shot magazine, full sound suppression and gets over 30 shots per fill. The receiver features a machined picatinny rail and the bolt is reversible for left-handed shooters. An on-board gauge for monitoring air pressure and a crisp two-stage trigger make this a worthy addition to your gun collection.
The Armada Magpul Edition is available exclusively at Crosman.com and PyramydAir.com. It features Magpul MOE® grip, stock and cheek riser for the ultimate modern sporting air rifle. It will be available November 10 at $999 MSRP.
