We have just received an official statement from the UK Umarex importers about the Gauntlet:
The Umarex Gauntlet will not be released into the UK during 2017. There are technical issues which need to be addressed in terms of new valving for power levels, EU certification of the cylinder and rigorous quality testing for the UK market.
We are however pleased to announce that the Walther Rotex will be available in one of the World´s most advanced polymer stocks very soon, and at a very attractive retail price.´
So ...No Gauntlet in 2017 which is a shame.
