Things I liked: It puts the pellets where I point it and it hits hard. It is solidly built built, looks good and feels right. The more I shoot it the more I like it. At first I wasn't sure as I was comparing it to my 45 year old Blue Streak and a 1 year old 392. Both excellent air rifles but I was intrigued by the concept of a gas piston and I wanted a hard hitting single break for quicker reloads. The gas piston is definitely more friendly than springers I've owned and one spring pistol I still own. Now that I am used to it I am not at all disappointed! This .22 hits harder than the 5mm or .22 pumper and if I quietly miss a pest, it it obliviously waits for me to reload. I can take out chipmunks and consistently make head-shots on squirrels at 30 yards. Country living is nice but the garden needs protection. I can't use nonlethal traps because it is illegal to drop the varmints off somewhere else and I don't want to jail and feed them for the rest of their natural lives.
Things I would have changed: It would be nice if it were available without the scope for less money. Let's face it, it is not a 100 yard gun so a scope is definitely optional. I deducted a star for value because I had to buy a scope I didn't need or want, though I may attach it to something else. It seems to be nice scope despite some of the review comments I've seen. I tried it then replaced it with a red dot so, for now, I can't speak to its durability.
What others should know: The first one I received must have had a misaligned rail as I could not sight/adjust the scope or a red dot far enough left to get the aim point on the impact point even though the iron sight was right on.. Thank you PyramydAir for quickly replacing it! This thing came with a lot of gunk (protective oil) all over it an in the barrel. I cleaned it thoroughly and tightened all the screws before putting a single pellet through it. It still dieseled for the first few shots and then quieted right down. At first I wasn't sure about the accuracy, especially compared to my pumpers. It is definitely different to shoot. The recoil is different from steel spring guns I've owned and the pumpers have essentially no recoil. After about 50 pellets I was consistently hitting 1 1/2 inch groups at 30 yards and putting pellets on top of each other at 15. Since then it just kept getting better. Break in for sure, but I suspect it was more of the gun training me than it getting better.
Things I liked: The feel of the gun you actually feel like you or holding a Ruger 22 rifle. This is hard to believe but I took it out of the box mounted the scope and hit a 3" target in the red at 30 yards with no scope adjustment. The scope is very nice really smooth to operate.
Things I would have changed: butt stock adjustment
What others should know: I don't believe you can go wrong with this rifle
Things I liked: Very nice stock, easy to cock, able to decock, perfect power without being unmanageable. Quiet. Light and maneuverable for a strong .22 its the same weight as crosman np wood stock 177. I love this gun and rugers in general have always blown their pricepoint way out of the water on a bunch ive had.
Things I would have changed: The moderator/grip end piece is a little bulky looking but it works great to quiet it so its all good. The butt is angled for standing shooting, leaning forward on a bench puts the top point in your shoulder a little. Should have square through bolts in the mounts but they havent moved so, again, its all good. You'll want upgrade scope gear anywho, but open sights are very functional so could be sold without scope stuff - the usual
What others should know: Mine is the .22 with metal spring from WM dubbed the "impact", metal spring tend to shoot a little hotter then gaspistons but need more break in time. I got the superpoint marketed for this gun and wasnt going to get them and as much as I wanted the jsbs to be the most accurate, surprise, the gun loves them. They are long pellets and actual theoretically perfect for spin blah blah. They are pointed but so soft they expand the most compared to even baracuda hunter extremes. Want a magnum .22 springer without the problems of a magnum .22 springer? Here it is.
Where is this made in?
What, do you clean beside the barrel. On this rifle
Follow the recommended maintenance schedule that should come with the rifle. The rule of thumb is thoroughly clean inside the barrel when new before shooting and that's about it. If accuracy drops tremendously after several tins of pellets then probably time to clean it again.
Is there an after market trigger for the Ruger Yukon
No, but you can improve it somewhat. It's very similar to the Crosman trigger but nothing is interchangeable and the common mods won't work. I wouldn't hold my breath for an aftermarket trigger either, and if one is made I wouldn't expect much from it. I have a pix of the internals if interested; chevota at hotmail.
