SIG Sauer Introduces New MCX Virtus PCP Air Rifle

Recommended Posts

SIG Sauer recently introduced its newest SIG Air division product, the MCX Virtus PCP Air Rifle. The pre-charged pneumatic air rifle includes SIG’s proprietary 30-round rapid pellet magazine (RPM).

The Virtus Air Rifle is based on the MCX Virtus Patrol Rifle. It functions as a semi-automatic air rifle and features a 17.5-inch barrel. An M-LOK handugard provides attachment points. The Virtus draws power from a regulated, 13-cubic-inch, high-pressure air cylinder located within the stock. Maximum fill pressure tops out at 3,000 psi and output is controlled at 1,110 psi, ensuring consistent shots, according to SIG. The refillable air cylinder delivers up to 150 shots per fill.

“The new MCX Virtus PCP Air Rifle is powerful enough to hunt small game such as squirrels and rabbits and is great for pest control in addition to target shooting,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of SIG AIR. “Unlike CO2-powered airguns, the high-pressure air in PCP models are less affected by extreme swings in temperature, making the MCX Virtus PCP an excellent all-weather airgun. Performance will be consistent, whether shooting on hot summer days or in freezing temperatures.”

The .22 caliber MCX Virtus PCP Air Rifle shoots up to 700 fps with a muzzle energy of 11 ft-lbs. SIG expects the MCX Virtus PCP air rifle ship beginning summer 2019.
