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?
Does the pellet have to be seated ? How far down ?
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.
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.
is this the AO scope incuded on the .22?
No, the included scope does not have an adjustable objective
would you recommend the Umarex fuel over the crosman nitro venom dusk?
I like the fact that it has the bipod legs built on, so yes.
how much energy does this gun produce
can i kill a squirrel with a body shot if loaded with crosman destroyer pellets?
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
Do they make deliveries to Chile ?, there are additional costs for this?
Can you ship it to Slovakia ?
Is there ever going to be a .25 version of this?
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?
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?
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?
Don't know its just a way to sell a product i would guess?
It looks like this gun has a silencer, is this correct?
Definitely. And it really IS quiet.
Does Umarex plan on introducing a .22 cal. version of the Fuel?
yes, Q1-Q2 in 2015
How do you remove the rail mount??
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.
Why would you want to remove it? It's the best part of why the Uma holds a scope.
If you are referring to the scope mounting rail, it is secured via 4 screws on the side of the rail.
Where is this rifle made?
What brand scope is the included 3-9X32?
says Umarex on it
I need a pellet gun that has the range of 75 ft
Pyramyd Air marks some items with red "ships to Canada" icons. How about this guy? Are there any restrictions?
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.
