Things I liked:The Umarex Octane .22 caliber is awesome... I traded up from an Octane .177 in order to hunt bigger varmints... But did not lose any power, accuracy or features. The sight was quick to adjust and sight in... I have shoot over 200 pellets now and tried several different pellet styles(pointed, hollow point and domed)and brands (H&N, RWS, JBS and Crosmman). I prefer the 14 grain pellets for targets but the larger grain are great for hunting... Other more experience hunters and shooters and used my gun and plan to buy this rifle.
Things I liked:Look, this ain't an Air Arms. But, that said, the trigger is pretty good, it is possible to cock it, if you try hard and it shoots like a bandit. Very, very fast and really accurate.
Things I would have changed:Stock is very minimal, even skinny and the sights can't last long as they are some kind of BB gun plastic.
What others should know:Considerable recoil, like all the gas guns. I'd say it would kill an non air gun scope pretty quick. I took the scope off it to save for another purpose.
Things I liked:I own both the .177 octane and the .22 octane. The .177 was fairly easy to sight in using sights. Within a few minutes of receiving the octane .177, I was able to sight in with about 10 shots. Will save the scope for later if I need it. I have tried lightweight pellets (crosman ssp 4 grain and daisy 7.2 grain) they both broke the sound barrier. The 4 grain was really loud and the 7.2 was just a little loud. I barely noticed the daisy pellet. The safety sits just in front of the trigger inside the trigger guard. Nice feature. One fluid motion backwards.
Things I would have changed:The weight of the octane in either .177 or .22 are heavy. 9.5 pounds is quite much for an air rifle. The octane does seem to be a little long as well. The cocking of the octane in either .177 or .22 is quite much, although that tends to be the power that you are cocking.
What others should know:If you have a hard time getting the .22 octane to hit paper, you might want to install the scope. Mine shot low with the sights. Then after the scope was on, I was able to dial it in better.
