Things I liked: It is a repeater. It has very visible sights, although they are plastic. I use a BSA AR 4x AO scope.( I have three of these on air rifles now, very good scope. About 70 bucks at Pyramyd.) Unusual but light trigger. Very accurate. Good power to about 200 shots.
Things I would have changed: Get rid of automatic safety, it is annoying. Put big boy picatinny rail on top. Also redesign CO2 system so cylinder can be removed without losing gas.
What others should know: This rifle just loves RWS Meisterkugeln 14 gr pellets. Others are OK but these are really accurate. 90 gram CO2 cost about 8 bucks each after tax around here. CO2 does not leak out of rifle, and I do not remove it at the end of the day. Chronograph puts RWS pellets at 630 FPS, with a total variation of 15 FPS. This is at about 75 degrees F.
Things I liked: The Hammerli 850 Airmagnum is a superbly crafted .22 cal air rifle. For purists who wouldn't think of owning or using a rifle with a synthetic stock, unless you want to travel to Europe and buy one that does have a Woodstock then spend the extra bucks shipping it back to the US, getting through customs etc. then by all means go for it. For me, the synthetic stock works beautifully and is solidly crafted. Some fill the hollow butt chamber with insulating foam but I doubt that would alter the balance of the rifle. Whether it would suppress any of the muzzle noise is an unknown for me.
Things I would have changed: Offer a sample of RWS pellets as an incentive for purchase or a discount on the CO2 adapter at the time of purchase. Also, for urban rodent hunting, it would be ideal having a functioning muzzle suppressor either internal or external. The one available currently is purely cosmetic under you wrap a bunch of electrical tape around it. Coolness takes a backseat to bring very useful in my book. Umarex/RWS are you listening?
What others should know: Transitioning from a heavy duty springer break your arm and shoulder break-barrel to an 8-shot CO2 bolt action repeater is a real awakening. This repeater provides quick followup shots for novices like myself are a necessity. Looking forward to getting a scope mounted and zeroed for improved accuracy. And lastly, even if there are some minor issues you can be sure that purchasing from PA is the way to go. They do their best to make things right and earn your business. A big thanks to Stacy for all her help with my purchases.
Things I liked: I love this rifle !! It is accurate, and powerful enough for what I use it for. I have avocado trees, and my neighbors have fruit trees. Roof rats (rattus rattus ) come after fruit, and love avocados. There was much rain last year, so there are many rats. We all have dogs in my neighborhood, and don't use poison, out of fear we will kill our beloved pets. I'm now retired, and have lots of spare time, so I kill rats. I have 45 kills as of yesterday, and have only missed once. I was using a spring air rifle, and didn't know about using the "artillery hold", so I missed one, because you have to make quick shots sometimes. I have 39 kills in a row with my trusty Hammeli 850 AirMagnum. It is accurate, the trigger is not quite match-quality, but very nice. I haven't even adjusted it yet, but will. I'm shooting consistent 3/8 to 1/2 " inch groups at 72 feet. I own a Weatherby 33 378, and hit the target at over 1200 yards, with no problem.
Things I would have changed: An adjustable cheek rest, and co2 shut-off valve would be a nice option, but for the price, I have no complaints.
What others should know: This is a very nice weapon, for the low price. It dispatches rats at 62 feet, using RWS Super-H-Points, every time, if your aim is true. My 850 is the .22 cal, by-the-way. Purchase the umarex compenstor with your 850. Look on the internet on as how to improve it. It's only $30 something dollar sand works. There are better compensators out there, but this one works well , at a lower cost.The 850 can be very quiet, and the neighbors won't even know you are there. As soon as Pyramyd Air has another 10 % off sale on everything, like the recent sale, I'll purchase .25 Cal MRod, for reliable, longer range rat hunting, soon. Roof rats are what spread the black - death, by - the- way, so it's OK in my book to shoot them. I'm disabled, and have a difficult time with break-barrel rifles. The 850 is very gentle on hands and shoulders that will need joint replacement surgery. Thank you, Fred
can you get this rifle with the minelis stock?
Is it possible to transfer this gun to an aftermarket wooden stock?
Anyone have any idea what the barrel diameter is?
