Umarex USA and the U.S. Marshals Museum are collaborating to produce a commemorative airgun replica of the Colt Single Action Army. Only 500 of the limited-edition airguns, which display a U.S. Marshals emblem on the grip, will be produced and numbered consecutively. The guns pay tribute to the U.S. Marshals Service—the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency—which was created in 1789 when President George Washington appointed America’s first marshals. The U.S. Marshals Museum, presently being built in Fort Smith, Ark., will feature three galleries highlighting not only the storied history of the agency but also its continuing legacy in the modern world. umarexusa.com.
