UMAREX LEGENDS MAKAROV BLACK SYNTHETIC AIR PISTOL .177 STEEL BB
The first steps led to the first big success: Umarex developed a line of guns with powerful appeal to 10 million recreational shooters. These blank firing guns and airguns could be freely purchased over the counter. That was a key advantage, because Germany’s new weapons act, passed in 1972, required a permit for the purchase of lethal weapons.
Meeting the demand for over-the-counter guns-
Meeting this demand was no easy task. In fact, it seemed almost impossible, because Umarex, at that time still called Mayer & Riem, manufactured only one gun. It was the Perfecta Model G1,
a blank firing pistol.
Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer, who joined Umarex in 1972, pressed forward with the expansion of the product range. Together with Franz Wonisch and Karl Mayer Senior he applied what he had learned at the mailorder company Neckermann: give the customers what they want.
The words of Franz Kafka describe what makes Umarex special: the courage to move ahead. The company’s motto “Looking forward” takes up this theme. New paths present themselves only to those who have their eyes on the future.
Ever since its establishment in 1972, Umarex has been pushing towards new horizons. Its founders, Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch, had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and set themselves ambitious goals. Together with more than 850 dedicated employees and partners in Germany and abroad, they achieved their objectives.
Today the company is managed by the second generation of managing partners, Eyck Pflaumer and Martin Wonisch.
