By ted from USA on 2014-01-15 17:17:45Things I liked:This was curiosity getting the best of me again...wanted to see what this type of stock shot & felt like..never had a synthetic stock before & only have 1.177 cal.,all my air rifles are .22's...the price was right..prexmas deal got me !So anyway,this rifle was a nice surprise for me....I really like the thing a lot,first impression was it's nose heavy but soon found out that wasn't an issue for me! I got this rifle with target shooting in mind & this Surge was more fun that I could have hoped for ! I like the stock, the way it shoots ,feels...this is a fun break barrel rifle! Easy to cock,no maintenance stock & the funny part is this Umarex has the least barrel droop of any of my much higher priced rifles, so little I didn't have to shim rear of scope !Has a ball type lock up & weird trigger set up but it seems to works better than most right out of the box ! This would make a great first rifle for a young or new shooter...if it's set up properly !
Things I would have changed:Really for the money...their isn't much you could expect to change for that kind of money ! The usual scope thing ...I have a whole draw of these junk scopes,I don't even think of installing such poor quality things ! That's my big gripe...sell the rifles with out the bad scopes...am sure a lot of airgunner's will agree with that !
What others should know: Will need bore cleaned...lube every thing including trigger..and blue locktite all screws & check often for tightness..will loosen up even with locktite on screws! I tried many different make & size pellets &finally wound up with Crosman 7.9 shooting as accurate as any & better than most....ya can spend a bundle on all kinds of different brands & weights & many times find out that the lower priced Crosman shoot as good as any...just my opinion !Only problem I had with this rifle was arms were rubbing on inside of stock,making noise ...a little grease took care of problem. One more thing ... join the NRA....$35.....you'll be doing us all a big favor !
