Things I liked: First off, let me say a word about Pyramyd Air's service: WOW! I ordered my Octane at 11:00am one day and had it in my hands before 9:00am the next day--for free. Hard to beat. As for the gun: I'm 61 and shot quite a bit when I was younger, air guns and firearms, but I haven't shot anything in years. I got the urge to try it again and bought a Crosman Blaze NP. Big mistake. So the Octane became my "next" gun. Straight out of the box the gun looked and felt good. Solid, a bit heavy, yes, but it balances so well you hardly notice. The first six or so shots went seriously supersonic, then it calmed down a bit, but 7.9gr. hollowpoints went supersonic more often than not. I shot about a dozen shots with the open sights, then mounted my 3-12x40 scope. In about fifteen shots I had the scope zeroed close enough to hit a 1" bullseye at 30 yards. Judging from what I've read it will take some time to break the gun in and get full accuracy, but so far I'm impressed. Time will tell
Things I would have changed: Nothing, really. I have a quibble or two about the trigger, but I expect it will get better with wear. If not, I'm sure there's a fix, or possibly a custom trigger in it's future. This gun would be worth the thirty or forty bucks for a custom trigger.
What others should know: One thing I'll say: If you look at the reviews on this website the vast majority are glowingly positive. Amazon has the same gun for a little less money, but read the reviews. Fifty percent negative. Now you can say that it's more likely that people who buy a gun from a site like this are more likely to be knowledgeable shooters but it's also true that often what you buy from a "discount" outlet is made to looser standards than otherwise, in order to meet the price point the discounter demands. Just a word to the wise.
Things I liked: I'm just getting back into air gunning, these things sure have changed. I like the power, accuracy, overall quality and look of the Umarex Octane.
Things I would have changed: Rifle could use some meat on the stock for cheek rest, can be a little uncomfortable when lining up your shot.
What others should know: Great value, alot of power!
Things I liked: Powerful,accurate,well made, nice scope.
Things I would have changed: Weight
What others should know: Buy a lead sled for sighting in
I recently ordered the Octane and noticed that when I cock the gun, it makes an odd scraping noise that I haven't heard with other break barrels, is this normal for this gun? Also after every shot, the spring keeps ringing like if I had shot it dry, is this also normal? Thanks.
New to spring gun. Can hit dimes at 25 yd with pcp or rimfire, but lucky to get 6 inch groups with this. I've tried to use the artillery hold but, as I said, I'm new to this. Is this a problem with the gun or me?
I can hit clay disk that are about 8" at 75+ yards. I would try a different pellet, maybe clean the barrel, if not it may the gun. Hope this helps!
If I were to remove the elevation mount could I mount a dovetail leapers on piece mount to the gun?
