Things I liked: I recently purchased a Ruger Air Magnum in .22 and this is my third. I own two Xisico XS 28. Xisico makes several of the Ruger air rifles including the Air magnum. Yes they are made in China but in my opinion its hard to find a better deal at this price and capable of 24 fpe in .22. A tune can and 30 dollars in parts can make the Air magnum an outstanding gun. When I ordered the gun I also ordered a new spring and seal from Vortek. I disassembled, deburred and cleaned. Reassembled/lubed with new spring and seal . It is shooting a very consistent 825 fps with H&N FTT 14.66 5.53 Basically 22fpe. The tune transforms a good gun into a great gun. Much calmer firing cycle and still retaining plenty of power. I have only been using the open sights for now and it shoots awesome (scope coming soon). Effortlessly shooting plastic golf balls freehand at 20 yards. For about 250 dollars for the whole project I could not be happier.
Things I would have changed: When I disassembled the gun the seal looked terrible and there was some rust inside. I am not sure the gun world have functioned very well without a tune. But these guns respond well to a tune. I recommend buying it knowing it should be torn down and cleaned up at some point. Lube and a new seal is like 20 dollars. Quality control could be better.
What others should know: I have one with a vortek kit its shooting 895fps/25.5 fpe and the other has a shortened stock spring shooting 850fps/23.5fpe. The best pellet for me has been the H&N FTT 14.66 in 5.53 or 5.54. in all three of my guns. I have tried at least 10 other pellets and the Crossman hp pellets were okay. For 250 dollars I have a tuned gun that I know is going to be trouble free for a very long time. Also the accuracy is very good for a gun in this price range.
Things I liked: Excellent power in the .22 version. There is a ken something that does a yu tube video review of the .22 and calls it a piece of junk! I strongly disagree but did follow him through a tune up of the .177 version wherein he cleans the compression sleeve and replaces the piston seal. I broke mine down and found metal bits and shavings in-bedded in the original seal. after cleaning out the sleeve and replacing the original seal with a vortek? seal.(its been a few months). I got better and more consistent velocity. My scope was broken two weeks in. I replaced it with an airgun certified leepers, with adjustable parallax. I also took 1 1/2" off of the but stock. This was not for length of pull, but center of gravity. The weight of the gun is easier to handle the closer it is. The stock is hollow. I filled mine with expanding foam.
What others should know: Mine prefers crossman premier domed for accuracy. Also consistent artillery hold for accuracy. I had my first air harvested bunny last fall. marinated, wrapped in bacon, baked with a few chopped potatoes. quite tasty!
Things I liked: POWERFUL!!! This Ruger Air Magnum .177 defines the word powerful. Great for shooting my preferred heavy pellets 9.00 grain to 11.50 grains. My lead 7.00 grain to 9.75 grain pellets fly in excess of 1025 fps. In the "Anything else air gunners should know?" I used a bipod and not my bench. In all my accuracy tests I used a bipod and not my bench, which in my opinion, the bench is no fun.
Things I would have changed: The stock 4X32 scope. Replaced it with a Center Point 3-9X32AO
What others should know: This beast shoots the 14 tins of lead pellets I have that range from the 7.00 grain RWS Hobby to the 9.75 grain Winchester HP, each shot in 5 shot strings, then each string averaged out, at average velocities ranging from 1036 fps to 1201 fps. It shoots the Crosman Heavy 10.50 grain pellets at an average of 992 fps and the Beeman Kodiak Heavy 1065 grain at 979 fps average. The Crosman SSP 4.00 grain PBA averaged 1462 fps with a high of 1472 fps. The Gamo Air Star PBA 4.70 grain averages 1447 fps with a high of 1461 fps. The Stoeger X-Speed 5.56 grain PBA averaged 1378 fps with a high of 1387 fps. These pellets were shot over my Competition Electronics Digital Prochrono in 37 to 40 degree weather. All of the lead pellets proved to be accurate shot at a 1" target 70 feet away, mounted on a 12"x12" boxes. There were a FEW that missed the 1" target by not more than 3". The one inch targets were hit until they were no longer visible, all but a very ragged holes where the 1" targets were.
