Things I liked:First thank you pyramid air. Rifle came double boxed was shipped and arrived on time without damage. Even the ammo came nicely packaged with no dings to the can Good Job PA. This gun is a straight up hunter. Excellent power good accury well built did I mention POWER. Decent trigger with ok open sites
Things I would have changed:Make the trigger metal "all metal" I don't understand why manufactures make heavy duty guns and put a plastic trigger on them. The weight of this cannon is a drawback ad a good scope and you will want a sling infact keep the danty scope airguns come with and add a sling?
What others should know:The first 5 or so shots are easly as loud as a 22 rim fire so beware. After break in its still alittel loud became easier to cock if easier means I don't sweat cocking it more than twice. Ive owned a Beeman 22cal for years had alot of rounds and many hunts through it. I wanted something with a bit more of a punch, jackrabbits here in new mexico can get big. The ruger will shoot straight thru them at over 50 yards. Gave it a good tune up now shoots thru 3/4 plywood at 30 feet. Likes heaver pellets say 15 to 18gr. For the price its a great deal given this gun is a monster never knew a 22 air gun could be so powerful. So if your looking to hunt larger prey at longer distance I would recommend the air mag in 22 its turned out great for me.
Things I liked:Having read many reviews on the best hunting air rifle for your buck, I had a difficult decision between these four: the Diana RWS Model 350 Magnum; Hatsan 95; Gamo MRA Showstopper; and the Ruger Air Magnum. It came down to the Ruger Air Magnum in 0.22. This had the best compromise in FPS, reliability, and price. The RWS Model 350 Magnum is nice but pricy. The Ruger Air Magnum is a clone nonetheless and sounded reliable from reading the reviews. I recommend the 10-for-10 deal for peace of mind. The chrony printout showed 900-950 fps out of the box with RWS Hobby (11.9g) pellets! Pretty good for a 0.22. This speed could be due to the additional propulsion achieved from initial deisling of the barrel. I expect it to come down with time.
Things I would have changed:Really nothing. Would be nice if Umarex produced the same rifle in wood to give it that "traditional", real firearm feel and look.
What others should know:I recommend first cleaning the barrel to remove all that grease (or the black residue if you went with the 10-for-10 deal). Also, the scope isn't so bad if you zero-it right. It's my first scope, so I cannot compare to other scopes. As for accuracy, it's perfect for me. I achieved 0.7 inch groupings at 20 yards. After about 400 shots, all is still working smoothly and am very happy. If youre after a powerful hunting air rifle, I recommend the Ruger Air Magnum in 0.22. The 0.22 caliber is needed for good knockdown. Also, this rifle is not for a child, or a small/compact adult for that matter since its weight and length-of-pull makes it a little unwieldy.
Things I liked:The price, accuracy, and power. This is a RWS 350 clone and while it does not have the quality of the RWS 36 that I own, the build is still solid. Being a clone, there are numerous after market parts available and as I like to tinker, this helped make my decision. This is my first .22 air rifle. The trigger on this rifle is fantastic!
Things I would have changed:I would have bought this from Pyramyd Air had I known about this site! The purchase of this air rifle led me to Pyramyd Air, I have made this site my only site for my air rifle wants and needs! What a fantastic staff and company! I have purchased three air rifles and numerous accessories from PA with no regrets. As others have mentioned, the for-end of the stock will flex(not a detriment). I would prefer a medal spring guide, a higher quality piston and a smoother finish in the compression tube(this is to help avoid nicking the piston seal on assembly). More about these issues in the next section.
What others should know:This rifle in .22 cal was my introduction to magnum air rifles. Cocking effort was as advertised which was very manageable. This rifle had decent power, but I did not feel that it was performing to the advertised specs. I knew the heavier pellets would slow it down, but I still felt that it should have had more power than it did. I have taken a raccoon, a squirrel, and numerous pest birds with this rifle, so the power was fine for my application. After about 800 rnds., the power started dropping. I am currently in the process of giving this rifle a tuneup. The internals of this rifle are decent for the price paid and definitely worth the cost of a tuneup. The question you want to know is would I buy this rifle knowing what I know now? Absolutely! The Ruger Air Magnum is an underrated rifle with great potential. I am told that the ones with the welded on weaver rail are better quality(mine has the bolt on rail). Also, be sure to tighten the stock screws and use blue locktite.
