This air rifle has a lot to offer...traditional styling, rock-solid scope platform, fixed barrel, accurate and easy to cock. Just 28 lbs. of cocking effort, but you're still getting magnum hunting power. With so little effort, you can shoot all day, carry it in the woods (not too heavy, even with the scope!) and hunt or eliminate pests. Don't hunt? Shoot some targets, kill some tin cans, flips some spinners...the list is endless.

Things I liked: This gun has potential: It is accurate and reasonably powerful but there are serious quality problem with the two Leverages I have owned.

Things I would have changed: Improve the quality. Guns should not be full of rust when new. Guns should last more than 3000 shots. In addition to the rust problem, the cocking lever get stuck, the trigger failed, and the pins in the trigger assembly and cocking lever fall out.

What others should know: This gun is not built to last. The first one lasted 3000 shots. I returned the gun to Umarex, and they sent me a second one that lasted one week! If you are serious about air guns, spend the extra money and buy an Diana 34 or a TX200.

Things I liked: Accuracy, heavy weight, low cocking effort. This rifle reminds me of the Remington .22 target rifle I used as a teen, (and my club made it to the NRA nationals at Camp Perry my last year), which had a heavy stock and heavy barrel. I wasn't that big as a teenager and trying to hold that beast steady offhand was impossible! But prone, sitting and kneeling, upper 90's and several 100's scored. This Browning Leverage was ordered with the Pyramid test firing and scope sighting, so I didn't have to fiddle with the usual mount and zeroing game. As of this review, I have only fired five shots, but all were within a 3/4 inch circle at 30 feet without effort on my part yet to get to know the trigger or proper hold for the rifle. Can't wait until the rifle is broken in. The AO scope is nice, although focus is clear from 30 to 125 feet when set at 6X without adjustment so I'm not using the feature at these short ranges.

Things I would have changed: Too much oil from the factory! With the chamber open to load my first pellet my hand came out with oil all over it. I'm debating taking the stock off and looking at the insides to see if there is more evidence of oil but will hold off for now. I did run a Hoppes bore snake through a couple times and it came out pretty dirty so plan to do more thorough barrel cleaning before my next firing run. Then I will remove scope ring and mount screws one at a time, add some blue loctite and hope things remain stable. Pyramid shimmed the rear scope mount with semi-flexible material so I may go with a compensating Weaver/Picatinny rail later after I measure how much compensation is needed. I will upgrade to mil dot scope later, just because that's what I prefer.

What others should know: Just be prepared for the slightly over 10 pound weight with scope mounted, especially if purchasing for a smaller person. The weight is a bit more than your average under $200 air rifle. If I were hunting I'd definitely plan on adding sling swivels and a sling after the warranty period expires. Also, the safety operates in the opposite direction of most air rifles with the safety as a smaller trigger in front of the trigger. Seems backwards to have to pull the safety back to fire, your finger has to drag under the safety to pull the trigger.

Things I liked: The Browning Leverage is a real tack driver for $200. Good precision and accuracy. I shot 1/2-3/4 inch ctc groups at 25 and 30 yards with Air Arms 8.4 gr dome pellets on a relatively calm day. A good scope comes with the gun. This spring-piston gun is not real hold-sensitive, which is a real plus for me, since I am new to shooting spring piston guns. Once I shot 70 rounds, cocking the gun became quite smooth and muzzle report became quiet. Cocking effort is a reasonable 28 pounds: I can cock and shoot this gun all day long and not get tired (and I am a retired old guy!). I bought this gun because I'm too cheap to buy an Air Arms TX200 or a PCP air gun. This gun shoots almost as well as my friends PCP air gun, and the Leverage is still breaking in!

Things I would have changed: This gun is heavy (10 pounds with the scope), but this is probably one reason why the gun is not hold-sensitive. Cocking was real crunchy’ and the gun’s report is loud for the first 70 shots. Bad dieseling for the first 10 shots, with some dieseling after 200 shots. The trigger is still rather heavy for the first 500 shots, and seems to be lightening up a bit the more I shoot the gun. There is fair amount of trigger creep, but the trigger lets off predictably. Spring and lever hinges did not appear to be lubricated out of the box. Open sights partially block the scope field of view (although this did not appreciably degrade the image). One of the screws that holds the action on the stock was over-tight, and took some work to remove.

What others should know: This gun is a real bargain for 200 dollars, and once broken in, it is a real pleasure to shoot. However, the buyer should take the stock off and lightly lube the gun spring, lever hinges and the trigger. Also clean the bore prior to using the gun for the first time, and after the first 70 shots with some Goo Gone on the patch, followed by a few dry patches. Loading the breach can be a little intimidating at first, but after the first 20 or so shot, it will become second-nature. I use the 'artillery hold' for the most accurate shots with the 8.4 gr pellets, but a light hold at the balance point of the fore arm of the stock does improve the accuracy when 10.3 gr pellets are used. The best pellets I have found were Air Arms 8.4 gr domed pellets, followed by JSB 8.44 gr pellets. Forget about light pellet (less than 8 gr): The grouping are 2 at 25 yards. I also suggest putting some mild car wax, such as Turtle Wax, on the stock: This really improves the appearance of the gun.

  • Fred from USA asked:

    What 0.177 cal pellets work well in the Leverage? So far I have found that JSB Exacts and Air Arms 8.34 and 10.34 gr shoot well (1/2" c-t-c groups at 30 yards). Lighter pellets scatter, and Crosman 10.5 gr produce large groups. Has anyone tried RWS 8.3 gr Superdome or Winchester 9.8 gr dome pellets?

    • Robert from USA asked:

      Is this rifle hold sensitive like some springers?

      • Fred from USA:

        Not especially. I find that the artillery hold produces the tightest patterns with my Browning leverage, but a standard hold also seemed to work well for me, providing that I hold the gun lightly with my fingers and lightly to my shoulder.

    • Michael from USA asked:

      With the vast variety of pellet weights available for .22 guns, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a brand and weight pellet that would allows this gun to perform consistently at it's posted 800 fps. I have found JSB and RWS domed work well in my .177 guns. I generally shoot target but will hunt if survival dictates.
