Things I liked:Quality built, good overall feel, these are my initial thoughts.. easy to sight-in with a few rounds... but it still varies after a few shots... will update if I find any more useful info to share. Pyramyd Air is great to do business with... very efficient in their updates on shipping, etc.
Things I would have changed:First look... VERY heavy... harder to cock than I am used to.. but hopefully will get over it... I would HIGHLY recommend that a new "O" ring be included with the gun... the one that comes with it is 'squashed' and I am sure that makes a difference in sighting the rifle in as well as FPS that it gives....
What others should know:Nice feel... and well made... will report back with any updates after I have used it awhile...
Things I liked:Overall it's exactly as described. I like heavy guns cause it helps me hold them a bit more steady when shooting.
Things I would have changed:I would chance the location of the "Quick-Tips" tag for shipping. This little yellow tag completely flattened out the rubber O-Ring seal at the breach causing a loss of velocity. Also, the trigger leaves alot to be desired; it's was real gritty on my gun and all the screws had to be tightened.
What others should know:Factory damaged rubber O-Ring was replaced with one I bought at the hardware store. No schematic or replacement parts drawing included with instructions. As a result, I had to go in and figure it all out myself. Online detailed info is sparse on this gun so, I started my own Yahoo Umarex Octane forum group dedicated to this air rifle. Trigger jobs, power tweaks, custom ammo, etc. with photos. This is a great gun with alot of potential but, it needs to be tweaked inorder to get the most out of it.
Things I liked:This rifle is very solidly built. The lockup is perfect with no looseness at all. The stock feels very nice despite the forward balanced weight bias. The cheekpiece is much more comfortable than I expected from pictures. The reaxis piston is super smooth and powerful. This gun is just as smooth, if not smoother, in the shooting cycle than my CFR with the nitro piston or my vantage NP. The rifle is not particularly hold sensitive that I can tell. The power is outstanding. It blows right through 3/4" mdf and keeps on going at 50 yards. It is not any harder to cock than my vantage NP, but makes almost double the energy. Does not feel anywhere near 48 lbs. I shot 500 pellets today with no problems. Of course, I'm a grown man and in good shape, so don't expect your wife or pre-pubescent child to be able to handle this. I suspect the 10 lb. weight once the scope is mounted will be tougher to handle for most than the cocking effort. The shot cycle is so surprisingly smooth, I don't think it will be very tough on scopes. This rifle is unbelievably quiet. Easily the quietest of my 16 airguns, while also the most powerful. It is seriously not any louder than a red-ryder. I can hear the pellet going through the air and the impact is several times louder than the shot cycle or report. I haven't benched the rifle yet, but from a sitting position I can put 10 pellets into under 1/2" at 25 yards. All-in-all, I have to say that I am 95% pleased with this rifle.
Things I would have changed:The trigger sucks. While it is pretty crisp and has minimal creep it is also very heavy and gritty. I must have gotten a bad one because my gauge shows over 8 lbs. even after 300 shots fired. I tore down the trigger group (which is a bit of a pain, and the pins will fall right out as soon as you remove the stock) and polished everything and it made very little difference. The grittiness is gone, but the pull weight is still 7 lbs. I will try shimming and going a bit further into the geometry, but this should really be unnecessary in a rifle that is $200 and so well made in other respects. The bundle scope is okay, and I am using it right now with no problems, however it is not as nice as the rifle deserves. I would have bought the rifle without the scope and saved some money. I would then buy an appropriate scope for this hunting-style rifle with better lenses, more magnification, and mil-dots. I guess at least this isn't a throw-away scope like most combos include so it is really a step in the right direction. But seriously, I would rather choose my own scope and be able to buy the rifle for less. I should also point out that the rear sight on my rifle needed to be all the way to the right to get the gun zeroed. Not a big deal for me since I plan on shooting this thing scoped.
What others should know:The big picture here is that I think this rifle is a real winner. It shoots very smoothly, seems to be a tack-driver (I will post some bench results once I get it fully broken-in), is super quiet, and not that hard to cock. The only reason I can't give the rifle 5 stars is the awful trigger. My example may have just been an anomaly, as reviews post lower pull weights, but my trigger gauge and my finger don't lie. One last thing....clean the barrel first. It was absolutely full of gummy black goo. And also expect the first shot to go super-sonic from dieseling. My first shot sounded like a hv .22 lr from a 16" barreled rifle.
