Movie Replicas Direct is proud to add Umarex Replica Blank Guns to our product lines!
UMAREX was founded in 1972 as the “UMA Mayer & Ussfeller GmbH” and first served the market with tear-gas and signal pistols, followed by air rifles. This was followed by the acquisition of the “Reck Sportwaffenfabrik Karl Arndt.” UMA was first reorganized as UMARECK and then as UMAREX. The goals for further corporate development were defined for Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch. The company became the “kings of gun replicas.”
The success story began in 1978 with the RECK PK 800, which has in the meantime become legendary. This tear-gas and signal pistol appeared on the market as a perfect replica of the renowned Walther PPK and immediately gained worldwide acclaim. Today UMAREX is Europe's largest importer of air rifles, marketing brands such as Crosman, Marksman, Norica and many others. It is also the world's largest maker of replica guns. Famous makers such as Smith & Wesson, Colt, Beretta, FN Browning, Magnum Research Inc. and Walther have awarded UMAREX licenses to construct tear-gas and signal guns and CO2 weapons.
