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 !

By Enrique from USA on 2014-10-13 03:30:00Things I liked:Price, Has a well built feel to it, plenty of power, easy to cock and the trigger is adequate.
Things I would have changed:Better scope, maybe at least a 3x9x32 variable and some open sights.
What others should know:Pretty loud even after 200 rounds, and a bit on the heavy side. You need to make sure all screws are tight especially the breach pivot pin, and the stock screws. Need to apply some Blue Loctite on them to keep from loosening. Mine loosened up after about 25 rounds.
