Things I liked:

I like almost every thing. The power is good, The single action trigger pull is very good. The accuracy is certainly adequate for a plinker. I didn't count how many shots I got but I believe their 75 shot estimate is accurate. I was shooting at a medusa target at 15 yds and had plenty of power to trip the arms. I was just using the open sights that come standard and no trouble out to 15yds.

Things I would have changed:

More than one magazine would be nice. (I plan on having about 8 when they're available)

What others should know:

To fully seat the pellets (Crosman Premier Hollow Points) I had to lay the circular magazine face down on a hard surface and seat them with a ball point pen. I didn't care for the double action trigger pull. (A bit too long and stiff)

Things I liked:

The look and feel of an actual 10/22.

Things I would have changed:

They need to fix the seal system for the CO2 Cartridges. As soon as you put them in, they start to leak. This impacts the live of the cartridge and the overall fps out of the rifle. I would not recommend this until they fix the issue.

What others should know:

Look into another rifle before getting this. It feels like I wasted my money on this rifle.

    Things I liked:

    This is an excellent air rifle...The accuracy is perfect on my targets at 20, 30 and 50 yards....One target, this gun took out the center of the target with one clip...Can't go wrong with the Ruger 10/22.

    Things I would have changed:

    The piercing of both cylinders.... I had one cylinder pierce and on not... When I completed shooting I slowly began unscrewing the plug with the built in wrench on the but plate....Slight his then it stopped, thinking the tanks were empty I continued to unscrew the plug...One apparently ad not pierced yet did while removing the plug...It exploded out the back, taking out the plug, but plate and my hand.....Use only UMAREX CO2 cartridges.....This gun does not like Crosman cylinders....Using Umarex cylinders, with my second Ruger 10/22, I have had no issues with cylinders not being pierced....

    What others should know:

    This is a must for any shooter...Add a rail for optics as it has mounting holes already in it...Any 10/22 rail will work as this airgun is an exact clone of the Ruger 10/22...

    Things I liked:

    The gun itself is a pretty close clone of the Ruger .22. It shoots well, is light and pretty easy to use.

    Things I would have changed:

    At least for my old eyes, the front sight is difficult to see well, especially against a dark background. I've painted the front sight white and it's much better, but I would have liked a little larger front bead. Of course I'd like to see a better double action trigger. I use it as a 2 stage trigger and find it's much more accurate that way. However, even the first trigger stage or the 2nd stage could stand to be smoother. I have noticed that it's hard on the finger to seat the pellets in the clips so they're flush. This may ease up with use but for now I use a pop cycle stick to seat them fully.

    Things I liked:

    Great look and feel to the Ruger 10/22. I was surprised at the accuracy. It is easy to add a Ruger Weaver adapter to the rifle so I could add a UTG Scope to it. The gun is light and easy to handle, and its a great rifle to introduce kids to. The magazines and extra clips are very cheap. In fact, they are too cheap at $6 each. Part of the reason the double action trigger is so heavy is that the magazine has way too much tension in the two springs in it. There are instructions on message boards on how to open up the magazine and fix it. I ended up cutting 3mm off of both springs with wire cutters and added a light amount of RWS Chamber Oil. If I messed up, it's only $6 to buy another magazine. It ended up taking many lbs off the double action trigger and cocking mechanism.

    Things I would have changed:

    The reviews that mention the high weight of the trigger pull are not kidding. When I got the rifle out of the box, it was off the charts and at first I regretted the purchase. I even bought a trigger pull measuring device to see if it was just me. I was get 5 lb single action and 14lb+ double action. There are two issues that can easily be fixed. First was the magazine issue that I already described and explained how to fix. Second, it does not feel like they added anywhere near enough lubricant to the trigger assembly at the factory. It feels very gritty and dry when you pull it. There are even instructions online on how to take apart the gun to lubricate the trigger. However, it was much easier to use the needle that comes with the RWS Chamber Oil to get oil inside the trigger assembly without taking apart anything. I put in ALOT of oil by inserting the needle deep on all sides of the trigger, rotated it around to get good coverage, and got my single action pull down to 1.5 lbs.

    What others should know:

    After fixing the magazine and lack of oil in the trigger assembly, the gun is a joy to use. A review suggested that the UTG Bugbuster was a good scope to put on the rifle. However, I found it too short and it didn't give me enough eye relief. A UTG True Hunter regular sized scope worked much better for me. I use this to help teach my kids how to shoot airguns, and I do not want young kids handling lead so I only use non-lead pellets. H&N Barracuda Green pellets worked perfectly and with great accuracy, but becareful of the Gamo Lethal pellets, I got those jammed in the gun. Also, the pellet seater that comes with the Air Venturi Pen and Seater set, works great in seating the pellets into the clip. Trying to just use your fingers quickly becomes annoying and you can slightly bend the pellet tail affecting the accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    Has a nice weight and balance to it, pretty accurate, extra clips don't cost that much so you can get a bunch, preload, and shoot for a while. Looks pretty cool too--- like the real thing.

    Things I would have changed:

    Here's the thing with this gun: it is a Ruger 10/22 replica. Supposedly, semi automatic. But the trigger pull is very hard unless you cock it each time you pull the trigger. And then it is functioning more like a bolt action rifle than a semi automatic. I like it, but, unless you don't mind some 8 pounds of pressure with each trigger pull, it's not a semi automatic, like my Crosman 1077 or my Springfield Armory M1 Carbine--- with those, you can plink plink plink for as long as you have CO2 in the tank!

    Things I liked:

    My very first gun some 45 years ago was a Rugar 10/22 carbine and it has always been my absolute favorite! So yes I bought this for that nostalgia. The look feel and function of this is absolutely perfect! I was surprised at how much fun this is. Supper easy to load. Good accuracy and trigger feel. It is also fairly quiet thats perfect for a city neighborhood.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it came in a wood stock option.

    What others should know:

    This is the absolute best first gun for kids! Once they get use to this switching them to the rim fire Rugar 10/22 will be so easy I bet they would never know! Ever owned a 10/22 but wish you could shoot in your back yard this is it! I absolutely love this gun and cannot recommend it more highly!

    Things I liked:

    This is my second one of these. I bought the second because I gave the first to my father (after a year of using it, about 10K rounds) so he could participate in a "postal" target contest with my brothers, children, and grandchildren - 4 generations enjoying airguns together. Both are very accurate and a joy to use. Both have scopes - one uses a Field & Stream 4x32, the other with a Swiss Arms 3-9x40 Swiss Arms 3-9x40 Scope with... (I've bought half a dozen of those now too - great scope).

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be fantastic if Umarex made it available with a wood stock. It would be much better if there were a way to reduce the trigger pull, especially in double-action mode.

    What others should know:

    Expect 60 good shots from two CO2 bottles. I use the 10.5gr Crosman domed pellets in mine, Crosman Premier Heavy .177 Cal,... and Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum .177.... They both work very well. I store mine in my Plano 40.5" case Plano SE Rifle Case, 40.50".... It's a perfect fit. I investigated adapting a standard 10/22 wood stock. After purchasing a cheap stock and making lots of measurements, I came to the conclusion that there are enough differences that it isn't worth the effort - making a new stock from scratch would be less work in the long run. So Umarex - the ball is in your court! Want to sell me two more? That's how you can!

    Somewhat realistic look other than that nothing much!

    Things I would have changed:

    Wimpy sound/10lb trigger pull that screws with the Accuracy of the gun/ Having it not run out of c02 so fast for once what else... Oh yeah most importantly Anemic Pellet velocities just cant have that Bump the velocity up to 880FPS and chamber it in .22 caliber instead! Btw I want to return this junk:-))

    What others should know:

    Get a Qb78 instead only cost 100 bucks A bit less than this Way more power! Way more accuracy if you straighten the barrel And put a somewhat decent $35 Winchester scope on it and run 15.89Gr pellets 600+FPS depending on the temperature.......Goodluck and dont poke an eye out kid!

    I found out that if you put a dime between the two co2 capsules it puncture the co2 great. Since I do that I have not had a problem.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate with cocking, looks nice, parts fit, accessories available, magazines work well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger, the unbalanced stock.

    What others should know:

    This rifle has the worst trigger of 25 rifles I own. Cocking the rifle lowers the force required to shoot, but the pull is still mushy. The stock is butt heavy and seriously unbalanced, also the worst I own. Mounting a scope takes away your cheek support because even with low mounts the scope sighting is too high. I raised my stock two inches. It likes CO2 a lot. I had high hopes for this rifle, but those are major flaws.

    changing co2 is a bit of a pain ,trigger pull on semi auto mode is hard more shots per refill

    What others should know:

    i'm not able to even get 40 shots per co 2 fill does not come with screws to mount optics rail , should come with a standard dovetail at least plan on buying a mount if you want to scope it plan on cocking every shot with the hard trigger pull umarex customer service non responsive when I emailed with a question somewhat disappointed I bought as a perceived upgrade to a crosman 1077 it's not that much better and uses twice the co2 cartridges for a similar amount of shots

    Immediately felt like an old friend. Was accurate to 25yds with open sights out of the box. Much like its big brother in .22lr, felt like I hit everything I shot at. Amazing rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    Buy extra magazine and rotary clips. And lots of pellets. This is a great rifle for plinking, but its plenty accurate for pest control and hunting to 30+ yds. 50+ good shits per CO2 reload. Great velocity/consistency and no problems piercing both CO2 cartridges (even Crosman)
