Overall rating:4.0

Value for money:5.0

Accuracy:4.0

Things I liked: Plenty of power, accurate and attractive appearance. The fixed sites are bold and accurate. It's a break barrel .22 and it works honestly as simple as that sounds, that's enough of a good thing to get a high rating from me. If 5 stars is reserved for the one and only best break barrel then this is a solid 4. Prefer PCP but these are so fun and easy to use, it still gets a lot of use.

Things I would have changed: Plastic "suppressor" on the end seems sturdy enough, but it is plastic. Like most airguns, I think it was tested with lighter alloy pellets, and I suspect I'm getting closer to 800fps (not a big deal) I have the Gamo Hunter Extreme in a .22 it for sure gets right at 1,000 with a lead pellet (Advertised as 1300) and there is a noticeable difference in power. 800 is still really good, but something to be aware of if you insist on 1,000 fps out of a typical pellet.

What others should know: Mine seemed to WEIRDLY like the H&N barracuda greens the best for power. The H&N punched a hole in the stainless steel sheet I was shooting. The only other pellet to do this was a gamo rocket, even the H&N hornet only dented it. Both the Barracuda green, and the copper barracuda power pellets had a little more snug fit, and I suspect was able to build power by creating a better seal. Jsb exact best for accuracy.

Things I liked: This gun comes with the best included scope of any gun/scope combo I've tried. The scope is branded "Ruger"...but I'd like to know who makes it....good scope. I also appreciate the automatic safety. I also appreciate the weight/heft of this rifle.....although the comb need to be MUCH higher for a traditional "cheek" rest when shooting. And.....that's where the "Things I like" end.

Things I would have changed: -Horribly dirty out of the box, with loose bolts. -I found the sights unusable, and every time I'd just about get them dialed in, the shock of firing would cause the rear site elevation to move. -A plastic scope mount/rail??? Really!? I mounted a UTG 3-9x40mm on this gun. When I was tightening down the scope mounts, I broke 2 of the plastic "tabs" off the rail! This forced me the reposition the scope forward, making the eye relief way out for me. -The Trigger.....OMG! It has literally the worst trigger of ANY firearm I have ever fired. It's stated the trigger is "adjustable"....no, it IS NOT! The adjustment screw is similar to a wood screw thread, and is all the way in as it comes out of the box....so no room for adjustment. -The words I will use to describe the trigger...... Gritty, Rough, and HARD...... I didn't not measure is, but I suspect the trigger pull is at least 10lb.....it was literally difficult to pull the trigger after about 20 rounds. -Accuracy: It SUCKS!

What others should know: There are so many things "wrong" with this gun, I have no idea how they can price it at nearly $300! I have a Gamo Swarm Whisper, that I purchased new for $149.97, and it is better in EVERY way when compared to the Targis. This was the third Umerax made gun I've tried, and the third one that has been a complete dud! Time for me to go another direction.... I had considered going into PCPs and was looking at the Gauntlet..... but based on my experiences with other Umerax guns, I doubt I'd go that way.....just no confidence in the brand now.
