Things I liked: power level. silencer.
Things I would have changed: Replace the baby scope with one which is usable. This is a throw-away bundled with this size rifle. Improve the trigger. Apparently a good replacement is available, but it voids the warranty. Still burning brown grease on each shot after 400+ pellets. Mechanics of this gun are so loud I don'r know how it rated a 2. Cannot hear the pellet leave the barrel. That seems quiet. Accuracy is bad enough (either bench rest, artillery hold) I would not attempt a squirrel at 10 yards.
What others should know: this is my second and last attempt at a break barrel rifle. I had hoped this rifle could be tamed. It might be my skill level, but this rifle and I are clearly not a good match.
Things I liked: Quieter than the Umarex Fuel I had for a few days and returned. Louder than the Umarex Fusion I have had for about a year. In addition, unlike the Fuel, the pellets are actually hitting the target at point of aim! After roughly 50 shots down to 1/2" group at 10 yards. This gun forces you to work on your mechanics! Shoots great though. 10 for $10 test had average 770 fps with 11.9 gr lead pellets. Have not tested with anything else yet.
Things I would have changed: Might need to read other reviews closer. Not sure at this point if the 23 pounds is the cocking effort or the trigger pull. That is one long stiff trigger. And the baby scope...
What others should know: You need to be a bit of a contortionist to use the scope. Normally I have the end of the scope mounted 9-10 inches from the end of the stock. (I am 5'9".) Not remotely possible with the bundled baby scope. 13 inches is about as close as it can be mounted from the end. Seems very stable. Nice clear glass. Just way to short. Wish the X20S2 had been bundled with an appropriate scope, but the gun itself is a keeper. Thanks PA!
Things I liked: Over all great springer, very accurate and powerful. Likes all pellets I have tried so far for 12.4 to 21 grain. The gun loves the heavy pellets and I get the best groups at 25 and 50 yeards with the heaver like 18 to 21 gr pellets. Also very quiet and a great squirrel gun.
Things I would have changed: Scope is cheap but for the price of the gun its a gimme and for any serious shooting needs to be replaced
Had the X20S2 for a week now. After 200 pellets still smelling oil and seeing smoke in the barrel. How long will this go on? Seems it should be well past the point of burning off excess oils.
It seems Stoeger guns have more grease in them than other brands so it is what it is. Grease doesn't come out/burn off as easily as oil so you have the problem you're experiencing. You can take it apart and clean the excess grease out, which is what I do, or simply shoot it until it stops. I've always thought that extra grease is how they "claim" their guns don't need to be broken in, which is false, but it also creates your problem which many probably consider more annoying. The good news is at least it has grease because most guns these days have very little of a very thin oil which isn't enough. It's common for people to tell me it took 200 shots with a Stoeger, but the smoke/smell tapers slowly so when it "stops" is subjective. Lighter pellets burn more grease so if you have 'em you could see if they speed up the process. Taking the gun apart for a cleaning is really pretty easy. With just a #2 phillips and a small adj wrench I could have your gun apart in <1 min. If you've never done it before then maybe 10? Ideally I think everyone should take their gun apart for a little work, but up to you. If you want details on work they can bennie from (aka a tune) I can send it to you/anyone who asks; chevota at hotmail, just state the make/model/cal and what you want.
Can a sling be in stalled its for an elderly gent
You can add a front sling mount like a Benjamin Trail has, but I think most people would say it's too much work. chevota at hotmail if you want details. Otherwise I guess just screw in regular sling mounts in the stock wherever works. Obviously you can't put the fwd one in the center like a firearm, so just off to the side should be ok. You could also attach to the barrel but it's hollow plastic so be wary. The thing that concerns me about that Gamo Gun Buddy deal Stanley mentioned is if put on the X20S at the base of the suppressor then it may get caught on or wedged in the stock when cocking and bend or break the stock. The syn stock is pretty tough but fyi.
Being a break barrel option are kinda slim but Gamo makes the gun buddy sling # Gamo Gun Buddy Rifle Sling,..., which as i understand fits these guns very well .
What is the cocking effort of the Stoeger X 20S2, 0.177 cal? My husband has a Octane Umarex (nitro piston) with 42# effort required. It's near impossible for me to cock, without standing up and using both hands.
It will be much easier, like closer to 28-30lbs at peak, but it's also easier in that you can put your hand over the end of the barrel unlike the Octane. Also unlike the Octane you can adjust the spring strength to as light as you want. The power goes with it so half the cocking basically nets you half the power but setting it at say 20lbs would be a good balance. It's not hard to do imo, basically you just shorten the spring spacer behind the spring. Removing the spacer completely cuts the force/power ~half, so you can est from there. chevota at hotmail if you need help/details
