Things I liked: Powerful, nice stock, very good gun after breaking in period. Reaxis piston.
Things I would have changed: Turn the safety around. It gets in the way when firing.
What others should know: It's a good gun, but for the price you can get a gun of the same quality for cheaper. Be patient through the breaking in period. It's worth the wait.
Things I liked: Nice fiber optic sights. The extreme ease of cocking. It is very quiet. *Beautiful* stock, functional checkering, ergonomic shape. Comes with decent starter scope and optics rail! (No, it's not a $200 scope, but doesn't contribute excessively to the overall cost of the bundle.) Also, it is NOT 9lbs, with or without scope. It seems lighter than that. What you get at this price point is astounding! Give this rifle a spin, and you'll fall in love! I had worried & wondered whether "Made in China" in the case of the Yukon would be blatantly inferior to "Made in Germany" (Diana) or "Made in Turkey" (Hatsan). To be frank? I've had NO indication of this so far!
Things I would have changed: The "inside trigger guard" safety design is a bit funky. I might prefer a thicker butt pad...not that there is any appreciable recoil! I would not have wasted $30 getting Pyramyd to test fire and configure scope. The scope was not even close to adjusted at any range, and I suspect it was simply screwed on. IMO, Pyramyd's attention to detail & customer service are...let's just say "inconsistent." I especially don't appreciate that they sometimes fail to respond to simple questions I've emailed them. One minor mechanical quibble is that the Yukon's barrel swings freely once broken for loading. Takes some getting used to. All airgun rifles should be provisioned to accommodate slings. Period.
What others should know: I have 3 pellet rifles. All are .22 caliber gas pistons. (I would not own a springer.) The Hatsan 95 Vortex, the new Diana N-TEC 350, and this Ruger Yukon. They are all very nice rifles. Of these 3, the Yukon is my favorite, and the best bang for my buck, IMO. My Hatsan is a sweet, accurate gun, but the first Vortex I bought was literally falling apart with pins sliding out of the barrel, and had to be replaced. Not a particularly pretty stock, and should probably ship with some optics rail instead of tall rings. Nice fiber optic fixed sights! The N-TEC is also very nice...rather pricey, but I knew that going in. It does NOT WEIGH 6.7lbs. More like 8.5lbs. Fiber optic sights would have been appreciated, and easier on my 60yo eyes. It seems heavier than either the Hatsan (without scope) or Yukon (with scope mounted). The feel & accuracy of the Yukon is sublime! Smooth cocking. Hard hitting. If I had to retain only one of my rifles, my Yukon would be my keeper
Things I liked: Steel to wood fits nicely and has a nice feel in the hand. Gun s automatically put on safe when you cock the air rifle.
Things I would have changed: Safety operates oddly, backwards from other air rifles I own.
What others should know: Scope was broken when I opened the box. Sent it back for a replacement. Still waiting for the new scope to arrive. Check all mounting screws, all of them were loose on my Yukon when I opened the box. Use a dry clean patch and dry punch the barrel to remove excess oil and speed up the break-in period.
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.
