Things I liked:I have several 177 caliber air rifles and I wanted this one because of it's muzzle velocity with 22 caliber. I set up my chronograph on the rifle and it lives up to it's advertised velocity. It averaged 980 ft/sec. which is great for a 22 caliber. It has a lot of knockdown power as compared with a 177 caliber. The pellet will go through a 1/2" pine board. I really like the green & red laser sighting. You can pinpoint small targets at 50 yards with the front red laser sight.
Things I would have changed:It could use a better scope. I removed the scope and just use the laser sights. It has a large "jar" upon pulling the trigger and this will throw you off target. I had to make a "V" shaped forearm rest for the stock to shoot with any accuracy.
What others should know:This is the heaviest air rifle that I own. It also takes a lot of effort to break down the barrel to reload.
Things I liked:This is not a kids rifle and the word Magnum is in there for a reason. This thing is a hammer and there is always predictable accuracy with this weapon. Not that difficult to cock and the trigger is an absolute dream compared to all the others I've owned.
Things I would have changed:The scope is not even worth thinking about putting on. Go to you big box store and get a notable name brand 3x9x50 and be done with it. My scope cost $40 on sale and it's .30cal rated. No worries. This thing is heavy to pack around, sling swivels would have been nice. The manufacturer should have used better grade grease or none at all would have been nicer and all the connections including scope mount were barely hand tight and now I'll tell you how to make this thing a 50yd tack driver....
What others should know:Take off the scope mount, clean threads, put on and tighten with a dose of loctite 271. This thing will test your mounts. Get a screwdriver, take off the stock and clean every ounce of that black crap grease, and use a good white lithium or thick graphite for all moving points. Clean barrel with NO CHEMICALS, just swabs then when that looks clean, get a nylon bore-brush and do it some more. Now, mount your scope, took me 5 yards to zero at 20 yards and my 50 yard shots are only a 1-mil up hold. Clean with clean brush ever 20 shots through your first hundred and after that, re-check your zero on the 10 ring 1" targets at 25 yards. I get 1/4" or less grouping and the RWS 14gr pellets are penetrating the 1-1/2" back board. At 25 to 37 yards I can hit a dime or split a cigarette on a dead hold. I put a piece of wing walk on each side of fore-stock to increase grip when using a tree or other item to steady shot. This is a real weapon, not a toy, every kill on this has been single shot, no run or fly aways and it will split a snakes head in half from 50ft(but that's another story). The more expensive nicer grade pellet guns are great, I will buy one, a very nice gasser maybe, but this one is my trusty pocket knife that I can count on every time. Be sure to re-zero every 100 or so shots, keep your barrel clean and little to no oil for consistency. Most pellets come oiled, just keep that in mind. Heavier pellets work better and keep all connections tight. I Love This Rifle!
Things I liked:I watched a number of videos on this rifle, and was really intrigued by it, the power seemed exceptional in a breakbarrel at this caliber. When it came in the mail, it was one of my first purchases from pyramid, it was delivered quickly and i found everything in place. This rifle is another beast among the sometimes mediocre offerings of some companies, dont get me wrong ,each has its use, and can be an enjoyable guns. But i wanted something powerful for hunting. To test it, i used an old cow skull out my brothers place, there was already one twenty two rim fire hole in it, so i had something to measure by. The Air magnum, shoots non lead 22 caliber pellets at an advertised 1200 fps. I used the heaviest pellets i had to get an idea of the rifles power. over and over it punched holes through the target, the pellet holes matched the rim fire hole in size ,,, crisp clean holes. That was enough for me,, The stock of the air magnum near the breaking point, is a little light to me, but besides that its smooth consistant, and i like the open sights. It will rock a scope unless its cinched down,lol
Things I would have changed: Just possibly a heavier denser stock, but all in all i like the looks and feel and performance of this rifle.
What others should know:The buyer if unfamiliar with these ubber magnum models should take extra care,, of course good safety habits are essential for the use of any airgun,but these more powerful guns should make you consider even more your target choice, the thickness of your backstop etc. Remember this will punch through plywood ,, even a few overlapping 2 by 12s will only take so much punishment from these type guns before your ripping out the back of your stop. Id advise checking the condition of backstop each time you go out to shoot. Remember damage is cumulative and adds up quickly. Like the Hatsan Model 135, The Ruger Air Magnum ,is an unsung hero among average airguns ,,one you should take a serious look at.
