Things I liked: Accurate shooter, great feel with plenty of power.

Things I would have changed: The rotary magazine does not always line up with the chamber which limits the bolt from going forward. Also when you pull the bolt back it can grab a pellet and drop it into the trigger housing causing the gun not to operate. I think this is a major design flaw. They need to have the rotary magazine click into place to prevent this problem.

What others should know: After only two months of use we had to send this gun back to the manufacturer because the bolt kept grabbing the pellets and dropping them into the trigger housing causing the gun not to operate. This is a major design flaw but Umarex\Hammerli does not cover it under their warranty. They call this operator error but the issue with this gun is that it is hard to tell when the magazine is lined up with the chamber and if it is not properly lined up the bolt can grab the pellet when you pull it back making the gun useless and in need of repair as the pellets will drop into the trigger housing. The cost for repair is $60 shipping (total both ways) and $54 for Umarex to fix the gun. If the gun does not go bang when you pull the trigger it is not a good gun.
