Things I liked: This is the first break barrel air rifle I have purchased, and the first air gun I have purchased since I was 12 years old. Here is what I like: Price; Appearance and feel; Accuracy (once I found the right pellet); Cocking effort; Trigger
Things I would have changed: Combo packs should always contain adequate hardware that will function with the rifle. I doubt the included scope was air gun rated. The "Ruger" 4x32 scope failed after approximately 50 shots with it mounted (300 shots total). The reticle piece came loose inside and rendered the scope unusable
What others should know: I have owned this rifle for about 4 months. This is a very nice adult air rifle. New owners may have the following concerns: stiff trigger, hard to cock, dieseling. All of the concerns will subside after the break-in period, which for me was about 500 shots. The rifle will become much more accurate after break-in, and you find the correct pellet. For my rifle, I have found that the Crosman Premier Domed Ultra Magnum (10.5 gr.). My rifle also shoots the Crosman Premier Domed Lights (7.9 gr.) very well. The Crosman Ultra Magnums are less expensive, and pack more of a punch when it comes to pest control. It will easily take a large fox squirrel at 30 yards (open sights).
Things I liked: This is a decent beginner rifle. It has a bit of a kick, which I had no clue about when I got mine about 4-5 years ago. Mine has since died, and reasonably so. *WARNING* Do not leave it cocked for more than an hour! I left mine cocked for days, and it was fine surprisingly, however, I left it cocked for almost the entire reason and the spring was toast, and it now shoots with HEAVY VIBRATION, and at like 250 fps. No surprise, but I was about 10 when I got it, and knew nothing about this sort of problem. The scope it comes with is adequate for the air rifle's capabilities. Although, I was picking pear stems at 30 yards, with open sights, I'd say it was all luck as it does about a 2-3 inch group at that range from what I've heard.
Things I would have changed: Stronger stock. My stock shattered on me one day when I accidentally released the barrel before it was cocked. I know, my fault, but I think it snapped a little too easy.
What others should know: If you want to target shoot, hunt, or just plink cans in your background, this is an all-in-all very good gun, but on a beginner level. For the price, if you take care of it, you'll have it for a long time, and the squirrels and rabbits will hate you! Mine took one heck of a beating, and it was a good gun. I took a head shot on a bird, instant death at 30 yards... So yeah, if you got $120 to spend, grab it.
Things I liked: I bought this gun for my grandson to hunt with and he loves it. We had to replace the scope and rings so we replaced it with a BSA and some Leapers rings and used a drup compensator, so far a good choice. We shot a 500 tin of Premire HP pellets thru it and then went to some H&N Baracuda Match 10.65 grain pellets and now this gun never miss's.. The Trigger is OK once you get it dialed in and the stock on this gun is a beautiful piece of wood, its actually nicer than the stock on my Hatsan other than it has no checkering. I mounted a good sling on this gun because with the scope it is heavy, only a few ounces lighter than my Hatsan..
Things I would have changed: The Scope and rings
What others should know: We had to take the gun out of the stock and tighten every bolt and screw and use blue threadlocker and let it set 24 hrs. No problems since we did that..
Which would be a good scope, not the more expensive one, that will work and last ,in a Ruger Air Hawk.? The one that came with the rifle in the combo , just broke apart 1 month after being used.
Your going to need a spring rated scope and i think leaper is going to be your best bet.
Is the Air Hawk's Barrel manufactured by Ruger or is it a standard Umarex?
Standard Umarex, the rifle is not made in a factory owned by Ruger.
I purchased an Air Hawk used at a gun show. I can't keep the scope rings tight. Any suggestions. When I took the scope off I could not get the iron sights to zero and hold a decent group. The gun is tight and the sights look like they should be functioning correctly. It barely holds a 2" group at 15 feet. Any ideas?
+1 on the one piece mount and a better scope. My Air hawk has a 1 piece utg mount and a Mantis 3-9x40 AO scope and it holds under 1" groups at 30 yards. One of the most accurate Air rifles I own.
Dumb question are you using the artillery hold ? If so change out the scope ,this could be the problem , combos come with cheap scopes , also use a one piece scope mount. Then practice your hold and then practice some more , it takes a while to master . I almost sold my Hunter Extreme because of the same thing. Good luck.
