  • Shaun from USA asked:

    I have this rifle in .177. I'm in the market for a .22. It's come down to a choice between the Fuel and a Benjamin. What are the opinions of my fellow Fuel owners? I REALLY like this gun, but the Benji is slightly lighter and faster. What say you?

    • James from USA asked:

      Does the pellet have to be seated ? How far down ?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Seating usually varies from gun to gun in terms of effectiveness. So you'll have to experiment to see what works best with your pellets and rifle.

    • Mark from USA asked:

      Can the included Weaver/Picatinny mount be easily removed to install a compensating mount like the UTG Super Slim 20 MOA mount? I don't need it yet as when first installing the included scope on the included mounts I was 4 inches high at 25 ft. Well within scope adjustment range.

      • MICHAEL from USA asked:

        is this the AO scope incuded on the .22?

        • Tyler from USA:

          No, the included scope does not have an adjustable objective

      • Nicholas from USA asked:

        would you recommend the Umarex fuel over the crosman nitro venom dusk?

        • Tyler from USA:

          I like the fact that it has the bipod legs built on, so yes.

      • cj from USA asked:

        how much energy does this gun produce

        • cj from USA asked:

          can i kill a squirrel with a body shot if loaded with crosman destroyer pellets?

          • Stanley from USA:


        • Sam from USA asked:

          Can you ship to illinois now that .177 pellet guns are no longer classed as "firearms", regardless of fps? Example: Umarex (UX-2251313 [Umarex Fuel Air Rifle...]) Thanks

          • Patricio from Chile asked:

            Do they make deliveries to Chile ?, there are additional costs for this?

            • Mike from Slovakia asked:

              Can you ship it to Slovakia ?

              • ben from USA asked:

                Is there ever going to be a .25 version of this?

                • Gene from USA asked:

                  I have an RWS 48 22cal with a BSA223 scope for squirrels at 52 yards, dedicated sighting at that distance. I hit maybe four out of five shots with the RWS. Would this Umarex be accurate enough to replace my RWS spring gun for that distance?

                  • Stanley from USA:

                    Maybe its just me but i would not substitute a RWS 48 or any other RWS model for a fuel. One could buy almost three fuels for the price of one RWS. If you can hit a target at 52 yards 4 out of 5 shots then thats a tribute to tradition. Unknown if this fuel can do as well or better? Its up to the shooter?

                • Jeff from USA asked:

                  Can anyone figure out why this gun is called Fuel? At first I thought they were doing something really high tech and clever like introducing a tiny amount of fuel behind the pellet for Diesel combustion and added velocity. Of course they are not. So why do they use that name?

                  • Stanley from USA:

                    Don't know its just a way to sell a product i would guess?

                • bob from USA asked:

                  It looks like this gun has a silencer, is this correct?

                  • JimPysht from USA:

                    Definitely. And it really IS quiet.

                • Alford from USA asked:

                  Does Umarex plan on introducing a .22 cal. version of the Fuel?

                  • Val from USA:

                    yes, Q1-Q2 in 2015

                • john from USA asked:

                  How do you remove the rail mount??

                  • JimPysht from USA:

                    4 hex-screws removal. But then, might be a problem in removing rail from the dovetail (without prying it off w/ a screwdriver. If you can, please advise.

                  • JimPysht from USA:

                    Why would you want to remove it? It's the best part of why the Uma holds a scope.

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    If you are referring to the scope mounting rail, it is secured via 4 screws on the side of the rail.

                • DALLAS from USA asked:

                  Where is this rifle made?

                  • Erika from U.S. Virgin Islands:


                • Buddy Daniel from USA asked:

                  What brand scope is the included 3-9X32?

                  • Val from USA:

                    says Umarex on it

                • Tom from USA asked:

                  I need a pellet gun that has the range of 75 ft

                  • Val from USA:

                    This qualifies.

                • Claude from Canada asked:

                  Pyramyd Air marks some items with red "ships to Canada" icons. How about this guy? Are there any restrictions?

                  • Val from USA:

                    This air rifle shoots over 500 fps so they cannot ship it to Canada. You might be able to find it locally but would need to get a PAL as it would be treated like a firearm in Canada.
