Things I liked:

I purchased the wood stock Air Venturi Avenger, I purchased a pump from Velvor. Just pumped it up yesterday and shot it for the first time. Started sighting in scope at 25 yds. I can cover 5 shots with end of index finger. The rifle has no recoil and I purchased a moderator off of eBay and the rifle is real quiet. This is the moderator, Custom Monocore Vented Baffle for Air Venturi Avenger & Umarex Origin Air Rifles. I am going to have to contact the seller because I had to do a modification to get it to fit but it worked well. I purchased Crossman .22 hollow points locally and they shoot real well. I sure like the magazine and the rifle has all the adjustments externally plus 2 gauges for the air. I recommend this rifle.

Things I would have changed:

nothing

What others should know:

Pyramid Air has the best price

Things I liked:

the gun shoots great. I have a range at my house from 50 yards, 60 yards, 70 yards and 80 yards. I shoot tight groups at all distances. I bought the Avenger in the .22 cal. and the 25 cal. The .22 was in the plastic stock and ended up having to send it back and bought the wood stock version. WAY BETTER a much better well made gun. I have added barrel bands and my shot groups improved a lot. At 50 yards I now have two groups, one group of 10 shots and the other group of 5 shots and both groups can be covered by a dime. VERY impressed. The first barrel bands I purchased was the slip on type with no way to tighten. They would slide up and down the barrel, no bueno. I bought the second type that have grub screws at the top and bottom that make the shroud and the air barrel solid. POE does not change when you handle the gun by the barrel.

Things I would have changed:

The only complaint I have is when filling my gun I have to unscrew the moderator to get the quick connect to attach. Even with the DonnyfL adapter there isn't room. If I really force it I can get it on but it scratches up the moderator and I still have to unscrew the moderator almost all the way off. does anyone know of a 90 degree quick connect in 1/8".

What others should know:

Barrel bands that tighten down solid really tighten up your groups.

    What others should know:

    Wrote a review about a month back and it never made it into the system for some reason? I stated I have several very good break barrels and pcp's all close to this Avenger price range. The avenger is definitely as good if not better than the others overall. It is just a lot of fun to use in all aspects. I am not promoting any given brand, I own two Marauders .177 and .22 cal, a .25 cal Gaunltet gen 1, and the .22 cal Avenger. They are all excellent. I enjoy shooting all of them. This Avenger wood stock ranks at the top along with my Gauntlet. I target shoot daily at 35-75 yards mostly with occasional pest control. I shoot for the pleasure of the sport and this Avenger gives me great pleasure each use. I have set regulator pressure at 2400 and get about 55 shots with 34-35 fpe with H&N Baracuda 18 and Diabolo Field 18 grain. This is the only adjustment I have made. I left everything else alone.

    Things I liked:

    Nice trigger, nice stock, smooth working side lever action. Nice looking gun overall.

    Things I would have changed:

    Scope base. The base is not good, i mounyed a scope and could not zero the rifle because there isn't enough upward adjustment. Same scope works fine on on other rifles. There is a $40 aftermarket rail you can buy, but after spending $430 on a rifle i shouldn't have to spend another $40 just to be able to sight it in. I do have another scope and rings coming in the mail, but i doubt it will resolve the issue unless the scope has more adjustment clicks in it. I haven't tries 11mm rings yet only the weaver style

    What others should know:

    I kind of like the gun it is built well, a little heavy, but not as bad as some. Just be aware that you may run out of elevation adjustment when sighting it in with the factory rail. Really wanted to love the rifle, but this is a serious issue.

    Things I liked:

    Looks great, shoots well, feels nice .

    Things I would have changed:

    It needs better Quality control, Scope mounts were very loose, and uneven. The Grub screw to hold the shroud in place was VERY loose, inside the shroud there is a device that keeps the barrel centered, it was missing an o ring. Where they drilled the holes under the stock, the regulator hole was not completely drilled through, The bleeder screw was but it was very rough and I spent a few minutes with a file. None of the above mentioned issues are a big deal but all together they could be.

    What others should know:

    Not really to do with the rifle, I called Pyramid Air with a technical question. I was told a tech would call me back in 24 to 48 hours. Hummm ! So I carried my phone with me everywhere NO CALL BACK!!!! So for me personally customer service on the TECH side is pitiful. I did reach out to Air Venturi they helped me no problem. Am I happy with the rifle overall? Yes I am. Would I buy from Pyramyd Air again is uncertain, Not because of their phone support staff they were right on, however again I must say if you have a technical question or issue, you may be all alone as I ABSOLUTELY WAS. Expert advice BAAH Humbug.

    Things I liked:

    The .25 Cal Avenger does not disappoint. It is a quality air rifle and has excellent the feel and features. I compete in10 meter air file, service rifle, and long range palma, so it seems my standards for accuracy and performance are higher than most. When I bought this, I was looking for better than 1 MOA accuracy at 50 yards, and the ability to tune it via the regulator, and hammer spring to the pellet/bullet of my choice. It measures up in both of these areas. In fact, the rifle out of the box, shooting JSB Match .25 Cal, 25.39 Grain pellets, easily keyholes shots at 50 yards. And the factory tune was within 2 MOA at 100 yards. I think with some minor tuning, and pellet testing it will make 1 MOA ( 1 inch. ) or better. The trigger is nice out of the box, but I will adjust it a little lighter to be more like the Timney trigger that I run on my palma rifle. Thank you Air Venturi and Pyramyd Air for making a quality rifle like this at a super competitive price point.

    Things I would have changed:

    A Please offer an upgrade stock that has an adjustable comb and butplate. Might as well but a handstop rail on it too. :) thank you

    What others should know:

    I got the 10 shot for 10 bucks on this and I recommend this. It is a good deal and this quality check will give you a piece of mind on the purchase.

    Things I liked:

    Incredible instrument. The terms "gun" or "pellet rifle" do not convey how precision the Avenger is. It is adjustable through every aspect of tuning without "aftermarket" enhancements. The trigger is fully adjustable without disassembly, the stock cheek piece matches perfectly the Williams 11mm sight, and you could fit a perfectly adequate front sight with a $1.50 hose clamp on the round barrel shroud to test for height. This is like one of those rare things like a Bentley barn find for fifty dollars.

    Things I would have changed:

    I shoot Silhouette matches with the Avenger (iron sights only) and a front sight would have been nice. I used the 11mm Williams sight for the rear and fabricated a front sight with lathe turned sleeve affixed with nylon set screws, topped with a Unertil base and Parker Hale, clamp type, globe sight.

    What others should know:

    The Ram targets are heavy, the rifle needs the highest power settings and the Mark II pellets perform the best at one hundred meters. If you don't know how to dope wind you had better learn.

    Accuracy!! I rarely write online reviews but had to on this Air rifle. At first I was skeptical about the 5 star reviews and some online videos, but they are so true!! Most go hole per hole at 32 yds. using .22 JSB 18.13gr pellets set at the factory tune no adjustments. Fun! Fun!!Get one!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing yet so far..we will see later

    What others should know:

    Clean your barrel bore good first before sighting it in. It has extra oil inside it from rusting while they sit on the shelf ready for sale..

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, no recoil, powerful. Went from springer magnum to pcp rifle like much better. Wood stock is awesome. So far only shot it at 30 yards. Goes in same hole darn near every time. Shooting jbs 18.3 reg set at 2300 2400 psi. 4000psi fill 60shots. Goes through 3/4 pine board at 30yrds getting 35 fpe

    Things I would have changed:

    My rail scope mount uneven ruff textured. It wasn't machined right. Scope sat crooked. It is metal. They make and aftermarket one which I order sabre tactical waiting on it now to come in mail

    What others should know:

    I found out after a couple uses of Mags the pellets and the pin arent so ruff to get in. alube up on orings on the pin that pushes the pallet in chamber probably helps

    Things I liked:

    This is a well balanced gun. Cocking lever is very smooth. Overall fit and finish is very nice. Super accurate, consistent 1/2 groups out to 70 yards. Magazine is easy to load and slides in easily. Easy to tune, you can tune it to get over a 100 consist shots. Its a great gun , but unbelievable at this price. I have several guns that cost 5x as much, but I find myself shooting this most often.

    Things I would have changed:

    One thing is fill connect can be a little difficult to get your female connector on, but even that is not a big deal.

    What others should know:

    Gun is awesome, I would recommend tuning it down from the factory settings to increase shot count. I got about 40 shots on factory tune and over 100 accurate shots with a tune at about 1800-1900 psi. Factory tune is accurate right out of the box though, so if your not into tuning you can shot as is. Remember this is not an FX impact, but you will have an extra 2k in your pocket to buy all the pellets you will need.

    Things I liked:

    Gun has great feel and shoots great. Cant go wrong for the money. Not priced much higher than entry level guns but is regulated and comes with 2 mags. Very accurate right out of the box. 35-40 shots before dropping below regulator pressure with regulator turned all the way up. I also have the composite stock avenger in 22 and love it too.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would look a little nicer in my opinion if the stock was darker wood but that is personal preference.

    Great gun. Cant go wrong.

    Things I liked:

    Great Value and laser accurate. Spend the extra few bucks to have Pyramid test fire it. Worth the piece of mind and cheap insurance to not receive a defective product. No, its not perfect but it is well above par for sub 1000$ rifles. Great for a beginner or expert alike. The wood stock is a must in my opinion,

    Things I would have changed:

    Make a new higher end model for 7-800$. If Air Venturi can do this on a rifle of this price Id really like to see what they could muster for an 800$ rifle. Im a believer.

    What others should know:

    Get extra mags, extra tins of pellets. This thing is awesome and in the right hands can embarass air rifles costing 4x more.

    Things I liked:

    In my opinion the gun is an excellent value for the money. I have been shooting air guns for about 8 years now and wanted a regulated gun. Figured I would give the Avenger a try keeping my expectations realistic. This gun well exceeded those expectations, so much that it is the gun I reach for when headed to the range. I spent the $50 to have Pyramyd go thru the gun which I have done before and feel it is a good investment.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if the gun had a front sling swivel stud to mount a bipod to. As it is you need to by a picatinney rail adapter or bipod designed to attach directly to a picatinney rail. I figured I could just mount a swivel stud to the stock until I pulled the action out of the stock and because of the design that isn't easily done.

    What others should know:

    I needed to get 25 moa shims for the rings and then add a couple of strips of electrical tape to get the point of impact where it needed to go as my scope did no have enough elevation at the speed that provided the best accuracy (1" to 3/4" at 50 yards). It would be nice if the scope rail was 20 MOA to allow for this. This was not a major issue and depending on your set up may not be an issue.

    Things I liked:

    Fit, finish and function are very nice. Action works smoothly and trigger is real nice. Extremely accurate, at least to 50 yards. Haven't gone further as of yet. Very tunable and good shot count. All tuning is done without having to take the rifle apart. I am getting about 40 good shots using a 2900 psi fill for those using a regulated bottle, one turn in and 1800psi on reg. Total good hunting shot to 50 yards is about 70 to 75. This may or mayn't change as a tweak the tune a bit.

    Things I would have changed:

    First lack of parts to the consumer. As of now it almost impossible to get parts unless its a warranty situation. Its a bit loud so a "real" moderator would be a great help. Its a bit longer than I would have liked but not a deal breaker.

    What others should know:

    Would I buy the rifle again. Yes in a heart beat. It's a great rifle. Honestly I fought buying one but once I did I am very happy. I am hoping parts become available soon, No rifle lasts forever without parts.
