Umarex's Futuristic Rangefinding Less-Lethal AR-type Carbine

James is at the Umarex booth to talk about this wild new less-lethal air-powered AR-type carbine that accepts a wide range of ammunition payloads including OC/pepper powder, less-lethal solid projectiles, and even UV markers.

It seems that the new 3D-printed HUXWRX FLOW 556K has found the sweet spot between suppression and system integration.
