The UMAREX Group is the world’s leading seller of replica guns for purchase over the counter and Europe’s largest importer of air guns. Its product line includes defense guns, recreational guns, match guns, airsoft guns, steel goods and high-performance LED-flashlights. Together with its subsidiary Carl Walther GmbH, which manufactures defense and sporting guns, the UMAREX Group offers guns for every requirement and age group. The products are developed and manufactured at factories in Arnsberg and Ulm.
The Group has branch offices in the USA and Austria, and it maintains sales partnerships throughout the world.
Founded in 1972, UMAREX is still an owner-managed, mid-sized company. It is now run by the second generation of the two founding families. The key to the company’s success has been the acquisition of licenses to build replicas of well-known guns, which can be sold without restrictions. UMAREX currently holds licenses for the brands Beretta, Browning, Colt, Hammerli, Heckler & Koch, Oberland Arms, Ruger, Smith & Wesson and Walther. It also has a number of house brands.
