Stoeger Industries, a multi-decade old manufacturer of performance-grade shotguns, pistols, and airguns, recently announced the expansion of their pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) line of airguns with the new XM1 Bullshark. According to Stoeger, the addition of the new XM1 Bullshark leaves no doubt that they lead the world in airgun innovations.
The new Stoeger XM1 Bullshark combines the bullpup configuration with an integrated suppressor, virtually no recoil, and Olympic-grade accuracy when using premium pellets, to reportedly deliver a whole new level of compact handling, maneuverability, and performance. With customizable and adjustable options, the Stoeger XM1 Bullshark is sure to set the new standard for the bullpup airgun.
The XM1 Bullshark is powered by an integrated, rechargeable 2,900 psi tank (200 BAR) allowing up to 50 shots per charge. The air rifle can be charged with a hand pump or an air tank with the included adapter. The XM1 Bullshark boasts muzzle velocities of 1,200 fps for the .177 cal and 1,000 fps for the .22 cal with alloy pellets.
XM1 Bullshark Airgun Standard Features:

MULTI-GRIP SYSTEM: Interchangeable pistol and vertical grip pieces for a custom fit
The new gun has adjustment features that include recoil pad spacers, cheek pieces, and grips to help ensure a custom fit for the shooter as well as advanced ergonomics to provide ultimate shooting comfort. Not only that, but each one comes with a two-stage, adjustable trigger for enhanced accuracy. Additionally, the interchangeable pistol grips enhance fit to reduce or increase palm swell.
Each XM1 Bullshark comes with two rotary magazines available in both calibers, .177 and .22. The removable rotary magazines hold 7 rounds for .22 and 9 rounds for the .177 for fast follow-up shots on targets or small game. The onboard air reservoir allows multiple shots to be made at a consistent velocity between charges, which means no pumping between shots.
Rounding out the standard features on the new XM1 Bullshark is the military-style front vertical grip for added comfort or use the flush-mounting plate if so desired, and the Picatinny rail for the addition of optics or lights.
The Stoeger XM1 Bullshark comes in with an MSRP of $479.
