Things I liked: The first time I shot it it wouldn't always shoot the pellet and sometimes the double action needs two pulls. I shouldn't have checked 1 star for accuracy because I didn't shoot it enough to know. I own S&W .357 and .44 Performance Center revolvers and had high hopes for this. Maybe I just have bad luck with airguns because I bought a $600 HW90 from Pyramid and the gas piston that was supposed to last decades broke after 13 months - 1 month after the warranty expired.
Things I liked: I bought this so I could practice for using my S&W Model 19. This is a close match in weight and feel though not a dead match for my custom grips. Still it has such a similar feel it works for me and fits the holsters for the 19. It seems well made, comes in a nice fitted case and has allowed me to practice daily in my patio so I am pleased with it. I have other weapons for longer ranges, the 19 is for home and self defense at room distances. This product is sufficiently accurate to allow meaningful practice at such ranges and is quiet enough to not arouse neighborhood curiosity.
Things I would have changed: Since the grip is part of the power storage I doubt if that could be made more flexible but it would be nice. My 19 has a tuned action which I love and is far superior to this system, especially the DA. But SA is OK. And if you can learn to control your hand/sight movement with this trigger the good one in your real piece will be even better. Think of basketball players practicing in rubber boots...
What others should know: It is not the real thing but it is definitely NOT a toy. At close and room distances it will penetrate several layers of cardboard so would ruin the day of someone accidentally shot with it. It should be handled with all of the safety considerations of a real firearm. The real gun this emulates is not one you would normally purchase for long-range bullseye shooting so it is disingenuous and just petty to complain this does not have the precision of a target pistol. But with life sized targets at room distances it can hit the vital zones with ease every time if the shooter does their part.
Things I liked: Purchased this expensive pistol to practice aim and firing so as to not have to go to the range and spend $.50 a round to practice. Works well in my backyard. Noise is not noticed by neighbors. Size, weight, feel are close facsimiles of the real thing. The easy loading 10 pellet clip is nice allowing plenty of shots before switching. CO2 loading is straight forward. The trigger is not like the real thing, but in SA has little creep and breaks well. DA is a wacky and I don't use it. Sight adjustability is a great feature but has limitations. See the negatives below. I tried light "pistol pellets" RWS Hobby and expensive Meisterkugeln with indifferent results. Heavier pellets - H&N Barracuda Match and JSB Match Exact - produced improved results. The JSB seems to work the best.
Things I would have changed: Pistol insists on shooting 10-11 o'clock high. Windage adjustment cranked all the way right helps, but in ~200 pellets I've never been wide right. The rear sight's elevation seems to be at max down position making it impossible to adjust for the consistently high shots. (I'm reasonably competent with the real pistol.) The black on black on black sights and target are a distinct negative. Even just a white/red dot on front sight would improve pistol dramatically. I've carefully added a red dot to mine. I'm not sure how to fix this, but it is possible to jam. If CO2 level drops below what is needed to fire a pellet, the pellet can hang part way out of the clip. You either use a thin tool to push the pellet back or sheer it off by turning the clip hard to the left. So far it seems that quite a lot of CO2 is left when the pistol will no longer have the power to drive the pellet. I get maybe 40 shots per CO2. There is little warning of low CO2.
What others should know: I caution any parent to NOT allow a youngster to ever carry this outside of the backyard. It could get them shot by the police. Umarex charges a significant premium for this line of pistols. At ~$250 I would at a minimum expect a fully adjustable rear sight and some sort of sighting aid. If you just want it as a collectable, these issues won't bother you as it looks "real." If you expect to be able to accurately shoot, a lot of experimenting and adjustment is required. Finally, Umarex tech support is among the worst I've ever dealt with. They are not only curt bordering on rude, they also say to any question on accuracy and performance: "We have no specification for how many shots you get or how accurate the pistol can be." This is my 2nd Umarex pistol. I hesitate to recommend their pistols unless you are willing to do some work and learn "Kentucky Windage." BTW The tech I spoke to said they recommend any CO2 but Crosman. I don't see many other choices.
Just received my 4" 586. Very nice. Two questions: 1) Can it be dry-fired? (didn't see it mentioned in manual) 2) Is Crosman pellgun oil OK for lubricating gun? (manual specifies non-petroleum RWS Spring Cylinder oil, which I don't have. Have plenty of Crosman oil)
Yes to both.
