Things I liked: I can't believe there are so few reviews in relation to this exceptional air rifle. I have two feuerkrafts ,both in .177 one for use with open sights and the other with scope. I bought the second one not only because I wanted a separate one with scope, but because I believe it was a good investment . The feuerkraft is bound to be a classic it has a sleek styling that is reminiscent of made to order rifles. It also shoots very hard . The power this rifle generates in .177 gives you the feeling that you are shooting a high powered rifle like a 30.06 . With regard to accuracy the feuerkraft is sensitive it takes practice,but it's well worth the effort by the time you breake it in you'll be hooked to this rifle. As for range it's a flat shooter at 50 yards plus no problem. The .177 is not the best caliber for hunting but with this rifle and the power it generates it's just a question of placing the shot close to a vital area and small game is in the bag. I've shot big iguanas 10 pounders with head shots instant kill .
Things I would have changed: Maybe offer a different stock. I wouldl like to try mine with a pistol grip stock
What others should know: This baby kicks like a mule if you don't position it correctly at the shoulder it will beat you. If you are going to use it with scope it is indispensable that you acquire the mount Pyramyd sells that converts to picatiny there is no other mounts that will handle the ride this rifle dishes out. All things said this rifle deserves to be singled out as one of the best air rifles on the market. Have fun ,shoot safe,and be very carefull with this rifle it's very powerful .
Things I liked: Like all RWS: superb finish and craftsmanship. Great feel and balance. Doesn't seem too heavy. Extremely accurate despite power. Not too difficult to cock. Nice click on safety. Everything feels very high quality. Nice open sights (youre gonna need them).
Things I would have changed: In the .177, power is almost a little too high. Strong recoil at first, but does mellow out a little in time. Not much else, the 350 is excellent.
What others should know: I used this as a base model. Barrel was shortened by 6" (could have gone with 4), recrowned, and an RWS procompact muzzle break (available from umarex usa/rws-call) was installed-extending it another 2". Custom fiber optic sight blade was installed atop the muzzlebreak at proper elevation. [ you can also get a hood for the front sight at umarex-have to call) Lowered power, recoil, and cocking effort by 10-15% [estimated] by shortening spring. Full clean and lube tune with deburring. The 350 is amazingly accurate, despite the movement/recoil (still considerable) out well past 50 yards- even with open sights. I can see why they call this a scopekiller. It has a good kick, but manageable. Open sights seem the way to go with this rifle. I can hit empty spray cans at 60 yards every time with open sights. I can also hit their caps likewise. Groups are very tight, with almost any pellet hitting the same POI. Favorite pellets shrink groups slightly: JSB heavies, H&N Baracuda, FTTrophy. If I rest this atop my hand on a hard surface groups expand. If I rest it on my hand atop a hard surface and grip the forestock it kicks hard enough to cause pain. It likes the open hold, especially if rested. Seems more accurate than the Model 34, and has higher quality internals- to deal with the power. Shoots incredibly strong, and extremely accurate for this power level. You will love this rifle. Keep missing your target? Take a closer look. It may be passing right through without moving it!
Things I liked: Great German craftsmanship! Awesome open sights crisp adjustable trigger pull, fit and finish. VERY powerful and accurate. Keeps most pellets in a dime at 20 yds. 5 shot group. Crosman premier .22cal 14.3 gr. hollow points are devastating! Bug hole group s at 20 yards. They exit my rifle at an HONEST chronographed 875fps. I have killed a 20lb 14 oz wild turkey this season (legal in California) from 25 yards, head shot went clean thru instant kill. Have shot magpies from 55 lasered yards out of the tops of pine trees. When I first started hunting with this rifle I was missing a lot, mind you I shoot a 30-378 Weatherby, .220 swift so I am used to the EXTREME flat trajectories of these type calibers. I discovered that on paper I could not miss but in the field I was missing everything. I have this rifle w/ Leapers 4x scope dead on at 1/2in high at 20 yards. What I discovered was that I was WAY over compensating for elevation, I had the old Daisy red rider mindset of a rainbow trajectory! Absolutely not the case with this rifle, this thing really shoots FLAT!!! Once I rationalized that this thing shoots like a .22 LR and trusted the flatter trajectory I now donï¿½t miss in the field either. Hence the 55 yard magpie kills. This is now my preferred gun of choice when hunting the delicious wild turkey. I chose this model for its ambidextrous stock configuration as i am a lefty.
Things I would have changed: softer recoil pad on butt of stock, not for the recoil but for the non skid and quietness of softer rubber
What others should know: If you want a very FLAT shooting air rifle to hunt with this is it. I first purchased a Mendoza .22cal and sent it back. YOu get what you pay for. Im not banging the Mendoza, for that price it will suffice. This rifle is in a different league!!!
