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 spring rifle 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: 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.
Things I liked: So far it has exceeded my expectations.
Things I would have changed: It is a bit more difficult to cock than I expected.
What others should know: This is NOT for youngsters. Definitely an adult airgun.
My gun seems to shoot all over I was kinda expecting better groups maybe I just need 10gr pellets I'm using 8.4 at the moment
Use h&n pellets 4.53 head size 8.64 grain my gun does pretty good wiyh those
where is the Umarex air rifles made?
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.
