Things I liked:

Came quickly, well packaged,Has all the things one wants in a pcp for $300. I like the trigger accuracy no fill probe smooth side lever fully adjustable to trigger and hammer spring without taking the gun apart, 2 gages and the list goes on. Mine is 22 Cal.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing for $300.Did take the butt plate off and fill full of fiberglass insulation so now butt does not sound hollow any more.

What others should know:

Came with no air in the rifle. So adjusted the regulator before I put air in it. Turned the regulator screw all the way in then backed out 1/4 turn and turned the hammer spring screw all the way out. Can only shoot 16 and 25 yard on my property so those are the distances I will be describing here. I just have a hand pump a cheap one made in China. From completely empty of air to 2000 psi 150 pumps, then up to 3000 psi a total of 240 pumps. Got 80 good shots and took about 140 to 150 pumps to get back to 3000 psi. I am 81 years old so it is possible to hand pump this gun if one does not much over 3000 psi. After sighting in scope it has been very accurate right out of the box. At 16 yards Crosman domed, H.P. 14.3 gr same hole 3 shot groups as well as the following,H&N Baracude match 21.14 gr, H&N trophy power 14.66 gr.and Gamo long ts-22 21.75 gr. Almost the same at 25 yards. Love Love Love it.

By Aaron from USA on 2022-03-20 11:21:25

Things I liked:

Accuracy and price but leaks like a sieve. Purchase this and have about 100 pellets through it and it began to dump air rapidly. Very frustrating when you send it back for warranty work and when you get it back almost 6 weeks later the rifle still leaks after you fill it up. I'm not sure if the tech what can I do test the rifle after they're done working with it. But it's very frustrating to play The mailing game back and forth. I guess I'm going to have to mail it back again after only having it a few days and realizing it's still leaking. Wouldn't even hold air overnight.

    Things I liked:

    I picked mine in .22 cal up about a year ago now, and its extremely well made for being an entry level PCP. This is the second PCP I've ever owned, my first being a Diana Stormrider Gen 2 in .22 cal, and this gun is worlds ahead of the Stormrider in my opinion. The gun is most comfortable within 80 yards, but 100 yard shots are possible. My pellets of choice are the JSB Jumbo Heavy Diablo 18 grain pellets, however I hope to try out some slugs here soon. I've found that the 18 grain JSB pellets, along with the regulator set between 1600-1800 psi really allows the gun to harmonize and settle in. At 50 yards I'm getting 1-1/2" 10 shot groups, with some fliers here and there, and at 80 yards I'm getting around a max of 3" 10 shot groups. Overall for an entry level gun, you cant get much better than this. Well done Air Venturi!

    Things I would have changed:

    Only gripes are the rail for optics, and the side lever cocking handle. I prefer a solid piece of picatinny rail, however the mounting system on the Avenger does just fine. The cocking lever is decent quality for what the gun is and works well, but it isn't an FX. However that's perfectly fine! As this is an entry level gun.

    What others should know:

    For a 350 dollar airgun, you cant get much better than this!

    Things I liked:

    Light weight. easy to load magazines, easy to cycle the bolt for loading. Sub moa accuracy with cheap Crosman CPUM 10.5g pellets at 915fps and 19.5 fpe.

    Things I would have changed:

    Quality control has much improved over the earlier Gen 1s. My Gen 2 in 177 is about two years old so I would expect that the latest Gen 2’s are even better. The older Gen 1’s were awful. I had two and had to return both. Some of the problems included bent bolt probe, no breech lead whatsoever and cocking handle bent due to very difficult cocking. Beware of any Gen 1’s being sold as used or refurbs. That being said my Gen 2 does not have any mechanical issues, EXCEPT issues with magazines. In 177 the internal plastic parts are very small and fragile When I purchased mine, I also bought 2 extra mags and the regulator. One of the mags jammed consistently on shot seven. What I would improve is to make the mags sturdier by making them 7 shot with larger internals or making the circular pellet carrier out of metal

    Things I liked:

    I like the accuracy I have shot guns all my life including a lot of air guns. This is the most accurate air rifle I have ever shot sure the fx or some other expensive brands might be mor accurate but for the money you can't beat it. Some people complained about the stock being hollow but I like it and it reduces the weight and I can control my aim better. I bought the 22 cal. I am going to get one in 25 cal.

    Things I liked:

    It's light weight, seems to be durable. Didnt have to adjust anything as far as the trigger pull or the air regulator. Put a scope on it and zeroed right in. It has held true with every shot. I definitely recommend this product for just practice, or hunting small game.vi even bagged a ground hog with it thats been destroying my barn floor. At 47 yards it sat it down in its tracks. Very pleased with my purchase.

    Things I would have changed:

    Absolutely nothing.

    Things I liked:

    Got this Venturi about two months ago. I love it. Have a hand pump for it (4 uncles) and it works great. I haven't shot it a bunch. Did lower the regulator down to about 1200 psi and have the spring turned in one rotation? from all the way backed out. I'm just shooting thirty feet away with crosman hp's and it is pretty much dead on. I haven't been able to shoot it further yet so I can't say how it does at longer ranges. So far it's been great. It's the first PCP I've used and I am really impressed. Probably going to put latex caulk in the stock to get rid of the hollow sound of it.

    Things I would have changed:

    For the price, I don't think anything needs to be changed. It isn't a high dollar gun and I don't expect it to have the best of everything on it. It does what it's supposed to do well at a reasonable price.

    What others should know:

    I'd like to thank Shannon R with customer support. About six weeks after ordering, one of the magazines randomly fell apart while in the gun. I sent a picture of the cracked clear part of the magazine to customer service, and was immediately responded to and sent a new magazine with zero hassle, I had the new magazine less than a week later. Didn't have to do anything but write the one email and it was taken care of. That's how it should be done, and that's exactly how it was done. Thanks Shannon!

    Things I liked:

    OK ......Ive had this air rifle about a month now, its only my second PCP (my other is/was a gamo urban 22) so im no expert but i can say this gun has put a smile on my face many times lol. I consider myself a slightly better than average shooter after running over 30,000 pellets through various air rifles. I have been able to shoot about quarter sized groups consistently at 60 yards even with moderate winds. I really like this avenger (25 cal) a lot. I have a budget scope on it (even though i have a hawke) and it works great. i did bite the bullet and got an electric pump on ebay pretty cheap, because im almost 60 and im not killin myself with my hand pump. you can set the reg low and not pump it all the way to 300 bar and still have a blast but i wanted to be able to have full power potential.

    Things I would have changed:

    OBVIOUSLY everyone comments on the synthetic stock .....yea well fill it or pack it or wrap it or change it ....... they needed to cut cost somewhere .....im fine with it. the guts are what count to me anyway. theyve made improvements over the few years its been out. hats off to air venturi for listening to their customers.

    What others should know:

    MINE likes the H&N BARRACUDAS, the BARRACUDA HUNTERS, JSB EXACT KING 25.39 And believe it or not shoots the benjamin discovery pellets nicely too which is great because they're only a nickle a piece. Its not crazy about the crow mags, barracuda hunter extremes or the field target trophy ....... the jsb exact king heavys and hades were decent also but i need to test/tune the gun to them more at a later date. Ive added the donnyfl to mine plus a moderator and a barrel harmonic dampening system ($30 on ebay) easy to install (they have a stock barrel to shroud "buffer" about 4 inches from the end of the barrel and its decent) ...... so i may be getting slightly better accuracy than the stock guns BUT this thing was shooting great right out of the box with the reg set at 2900 .......and POWER? ....... IT was blasting THROUGH 2X10s i had as my back stop ...... please be careful and turn the reg down lol. ......dont wait ....get one ....youll be happy!

    what it offers best air gun for the money shoots well. there is no better gun in this price range. You get a lot with this rifle for the money. For what you get with this rifle you will pay over $700 with other rifle brands. Every one I know who owns this rifle loves it.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy right out of the box. Although it's plastic, the workmanship appears to be top notch. I like the safety switch overall, the cocking handle, and the trigger. In essence, I like most everything about the gun. I did get to purchase it recently at the $299 sale price and although I've read a ton of good reviews I was quite surprised at what you get for the money. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering dipping their toes into the PCP world.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see a rubber buffer pad on the Fire side of the safety so that I can "click" it off Safe without having a loud CLICK for the prey to hear. Yes, I can move it from Safe to Fire with a couple of fingers, but I would prefer to flick it into place with just my thumb.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    be careful in scope mounting, as with the magazine on the top/side of the rifle, it has a tendency to require careful mounting of the scope as to not interfere.

    Things I would have changed:

    Anyone else having issues with the stock magazines? A better regulator A better hammer spring assembly

    What others should know:

    Good luck trying to tune it. Throw hammer spring turns out the window. It binds halfway through. Just fiddle fart around with it until you achieve the velocity you want and hope that regulator creep is at a minimum. If I wasn't retired on Social Security I would go for a more expensive gun. This seems to be good enough for plinking paper and backyard pests.
