Umarex Octane Air Rifle Combo, Gas Piston
Here are the benefits of the Umarex ReAxis gas-piston:
While gas-pistons (also known as gas springs and gas rams) were originally touted as beneficial for airgun hunting since you can leave your gun cocked without fatiguing a metal spring, that's not the only reason you'd want a gas piston. Anyone who enjoys a smooth spring rifle should try a gun with a gas piston. Once you do, you won't ever want to go back to a gun with a metal spring!
Another point you'll want to remember about the Octane is the 3-year warranty. While most guns with gas pistons have a one-year warranty, Umarex goes the distance. Because some shooters are hesitant to try a technology new to them, they worry about support. The extra two years of warranty should take care of those concerns.

Things I liked: This is the first air rifle I have owned since the '70's era Crossman and Benjamin pump up's. Wow! You've come a long way baby! Everyone who sees this behemoth asks if I'm deer hunting, and what caliber? I am getting to know the rifle, I have owned .22's and shotguns in the past so shooting is not totally knew to me. I have only about 100 rounds through it, and I also had the "20 for 20" service done. I figured this would prevent me from receiving a defective rifle.It seems to have done just that. I have had zero problems with the gun, other than loose screws on the scope mount, all of them! I assume this is the cause of the rifle being quite a bit off, 6 inches, target. After sighting the rifle in using H&N Baracuda Match .22 Cal, 21.14 Grains, Round Nose, a heavy pellet, it is very accurate indeed. If using a bench rest I can get dime size groups at 25 yards. I also shot some 18 grain Baracuda hollow points with very little if any change in accuracy or hit points.
Things I would have changed: Trigger is sloppy. I really must learn how to work this out of the rifle. There are tutorials available. The trigger is my only real gripe, I feel with a better trigger my shooting would improve noticeably. After paying for the 20 for 20 service I would expect the screws and mounts to be tight. They were very loose on the scope mounts.
What others should know: If you are considering a first airgun purchase, this is a good one. Note: one must be in fairly good shape, and have full use of both arms and hands to cock this rifle. I figured out the best way for myself, which does not deviate from the manual much at all. I am very pleased with this rifle, and my main reason for purchasing it is to eliminate highly destructive groundhogs, which are getting out of hand here in West Michigan, at least on my 30 acres of alfalfa, holes all over.
Things I liked: Rifle has good power. I was able to take out large ground hogs trying to dig under the house. Accuracy is good. Trigger is good. Silencer works good.
Things I would have changed: The rifle is heavy but not sure how much can be done to lighten it up. Cocks hard but that probably cannot be improved much.
What others should know: Bought the rifle August 2013. Took it out of the closet to shoot a squirrel this spring March 19, 2017 and the rifle cocked way to easy. Turns out the gas piston went bad over the winter. The rifle has not even made it through half a tin of 500 pellets. Rifle was never abused or left cocked for any length of time. Nitro pistons have great power curves but it looks like they don't hold up well. I was concerned about the nitrogen leaking out of the piston over time when I purchased it. I think I will go back to a spring pistons system, there is no gas to leak out.
Things I liked: Update to my previous review: I've now shot about a thousand rounds through this gun. Most pellets don't go supersonic anymore, but they hit hard, fast and straight. Seat your pellets, about an eighth of an inch. I researched the gritty trigger issue online and since the "fix" involved nothing more than dismantling the trigger and polishing two parts I decided to see if it would just wear in on it's own rather than dismantle my new gun. So I oiled it up good, which helped in itself, and sure enough, after about 200 rounds or so the trigger smoothed out a great deal. I don't have the means to test the pull, but it is light enough now that it's no bother. I did wind up taking the gun out of the stock though because the screw in the barrel hinge came loose. Applied loctite, tightened, no trouble since. As for the safety that everyone complains about: I like it. I just flip it back when I put my finger in the trigger guard to shoot, don't even think about it anymore
Things I would have changed: A little thread locker would go a long way. Weight reduction would be nice, but not at the expense of quality.
What others should know: Great gun, great price. Shoots most any pellet I've tried reasonably well, not picky at all in that regard. I'm getting half inch and less groups at thirty yards and I feel like the gun could do more if I could. We'll see. It is a handful, especially with a heavy Leapers scope on it. Very quiet, except for that thwack when the pellet hits. I saw a good many complaints about cocking effort; don't see it myself. I put the butt of the gun on my left foot, give the barrel a tap to break the lock loose then bend at the waist to push the barrel down and cock it. Easy. I'm not in the habit of writing reviews on products, but this gun makes me want to brag. There is no comparison between my Crosman and the Umarex. Quality of design, materials, aesthetics, for just a little more than the Crosman Blaze, the Octane is an order of magnitude better. I'm thinking of buying a CO2 pistol. If I do, I'm pretty sure it'll be an Umarex.

Is this air rifle more accurate than the gamo hornet maxxim .22 or should i go with the gamo hornet maxxim.22 instead? By the way i will be shooting squirrels out to about 25 yards
Anyone know of a plastic cheek riser to fit the Octane?
I NEED HELP!!!!! Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo, Vortex Gas Spring VS Umarex Octane Air Rifle Combo, Gas Piston I want a .22 with good accuracy and powerful can someone help me find a good sniper or rifle it doesn't have to be these 2 rifles but I want a rifle with .22 I got $200 I can do $300 but I want the best I can get
Between those two guns, I would opt for the Octane because it comes with a better scope and has a better warranty. It's also a bit more powerful. Though, if you're not opposed to a spring gun, I would highly recommend the Walther Parrus. It's a very nice rifle for the money! Walther Parrus Air Rifle, Black...
