January 2024, Accokeek, MD – Stoeger Airguns continues its mission of delivering the latest in airgun technology, innovation, and performance to serious enthusiasts. For 2024, Stoeger Airguns takes yet another leap forward with the introduction of two new PCP air rifles developed for small- game hunting and long-range precision shooting.

The all-new XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout represent the latest models in Stoeger Airguns’ leading XM1 series. The theme for these two new models can be summarized as simply “high-mobility, user-adaptable performance”—ideal traits for dependable field air rifle.

Offered in .22, and .25 calibers, the XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout are founded on the advanced XM1 platform. Building on the Human Tech Design concepts of functional ergonomics, user interaction study, and user experience, these XM1 air rifles host several elements that elevate ergonomics to assist shooter comfort and to maximize the shooter’s accuracy. The interchangeable pistol grip, for example, works with the adjustable comb and three length-of-pull adjustments to deliver an optimal, customized fit and precise eye alignment behind the scope. Combine this with the generous no-slip Comfort Rear Pad and intelligently contoured thumbhole stock featuring a flat forend and you have a rifle platform that promotes the kind of stability and fit needed to confidently engage targets in any field shooting position.

Since the XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout were developed to meet the demands of the hunter and the sport shooter, Stoeger engineers designed these rifles with shorter barrel lengths that enhance mobility and field position shooting while simultaneously delivering the highest degree of accuracy across the effective ballistic range. The free-float steel barrels (23.62 in. for the XM1 Ranger and 18.11 in. for the XM1 Scout) boast an integrated decompression chamber that reduces air turbulence and maximizes accuracy. The ½-inch UNF pitch threaded muzzle can even accommodate a suppressor, sound moderator, or a compensator.

Power for both air rifles comes courtesy of a 300cc/250 bar (XM1 Ranger) or 200cc/250 bar (XM1 Scout) air tank with an incorporated air regulator gauge, providing extended shooting sessions before refilling is required. Maximum velocities for the XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout are

960/890 fps (.22 pellets), and 870/805 fps, respectively. Both air rifles use a high-capacity rotary magazine (10 rounds .22, 9 rounds .25) for fast and reliable feeding.

Shooters looking to fully optimize accuracy potential will appreciate two additional features of the XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout—the adjustable trigger and adjustable hammer spring. The hammer spring can be tuned to optimize power regulation of specific pellets while the trigger pull weight can be adjusted between 12.3 oz and 1 lb., 5 oz. for that just-right performance and reduced shot disturbance.

Outfitting the XM1 Ranger and XM1 Scout comes easily thanks to a Picatinny rail integrated into the frame. This monolithic construction provides a solid foundation for mounting the optic of your choice. Three Picatinny rail sections are also included and can be mounted to the forend to accept a bipod, light, or other accessories.
