Things I liked:

I like this pistol for the reasons I bought it for. I wanted a low power pellet gun for 10yd and under in-house or back porch plinking. i wanted a cheap little pellet pistol to shoot the umarex resetting pellet trap. this is the perfect combo for that.

Things I would have changed:

I would've put fiber optic sight on rear. I would've at least put a dovetail on it, something, anything to install aftermarket sight. IMPROVE TRIGGER!

What others should know:

The TRIGGER. your first 2,3, or 4 shots are gonna feel like youre pulling the trigger with the safety on. its bad. BUT IT GETS BETTER. its better to shoot from a rest. shooting from a rest with Excite wadcutters ($5tin)you can expect 1/2 groups at 5-7yds. 1in groups at 10yds. the trigger isnt good enough to get tight groups without a rest.

    Things I liked:

    When I hold this pellet gun, it feels like a real firearm, comfortable, the trigger is crispy, and the projectile accurate. There's a good design that when you reload the pellet, its safety turns on automatically, very good for air gunners. Love this so much!

    Things I liked:

    Very close copy of the real fire arm. I like the weight and the balance. It fills my hand nicely. Single shot break barrel. Which leads to a quiet , slow and joyful shooting time.

    Things I would have changed:

    I drilled out the front fiber optic site. And replaced it with a brighter tru glow fiber optic insert. I can now see the front site. I would like to see them replace both sites with fiber optics. Also. Add a match barrel. With a match trigger. Make this into a match pistol

    What others should know:

    The trigger is very stiff, but after 500 rounds it has broken in. I used crosman wad cutters and beeman wad cutters At 30 feet 1/2 inch groups. Pellets fit the bore very tight. I bought 2000 Excite econ 11 wad cutters they drop on the bore not as tight as the other pellets. But at 30 feet I get 1/4 inch groups from shooting tested on my pistol bag. I will be stocking up on these pellets! This pistol is a joy to shoot. I hope they do make a match target grade. That to me would be an instant buy

    Things I liked:

    I like the look and feel of the gun with the same complaint that I've seen from others regarding how light it is. I can live with that even though it makes it feel a bit "toy like". The thing that Ruger needs to have the manufacturer fix is the trigger, I bought the gun because the other Rugers I own, the best of which is my Ruger #1 in 25.06 has a great trigger straight from the factory. The Mark lV is both too hard and even with the lighter spring I exchanged with the stock one it is rough and has a lot of creep. I guess I'm going to have to follow the guidelines in youtube and polish the sear and trigger mechanism next. Otherwise it's a fine little gun for plinking and I think will be quite accurate with a good trigger. Shooting from a rest has produced some good groups.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger and overall weight. It would feel like a higher quality gun if it was heavier as well as improving off hand shooting.

    What others should know:

    The got the price right!

    Things I liked:

    Sights are good and it is fairly accurate. Purchased for shooting darts so wasn't expecting great accuracy

    Things I would have changed:

    Gun is too light. I am filling the grip area with lead shot to add some weight which should improve accuracy. The trigger is WAY too hard. At least a 10 lb trigger. When it first arrived, I thought it was defective because after taking the safety off, it still wouldn't fire. Ends up that it fires fine...it just takes a lot to move the trigger

    What others should know:

    Add weight to the gun and find a way to lighten the trigger and it's a fun plinker

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking pistol. Looks and feel like my Ruger Mk II .22. Accuracy is not bad, about 1" at 7 yds though I only have about 50 pellets thru the gun. As I adapt to the pull and the pistol break in I expect it to get better. The trigger broke at 8lbs 13oz. I did a quicky trigger tune (You can find a couple of how to's on Youtube) and dropped it down to about 7 lbs...heavy but not bad. For the price you can't beat it. It's a plinker for fun...no air tanks, no CO2 bottles just break, load and shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger. Since the pistol has an automatic safety there is no need for a trigger pull this stiff. 5-6lbs would be about right for a pistol of this class...it isn't a target pistol so a 2lbs trigger isn't required.

    Things I liked:

    Since I have a Ruger Mk II bull barrel pistol this is a natural fit. It's easy to cock and load. On my first shot I was expecting the stiff trigger pull and was shocked how hard it was until I realized the safety was engaged automatically. Flipped the safety off and it was not bad. It's stiff but I have a plan for that. Fiber optic sight is easy for my old eye to put on target. Out of the box it shot surprisingly accurately (off-hand) at fence posts about 50' away. After the snow melts I'll spend more quality time on a bench to judge it's true accuracy. Right now I know it will fit my needs as a general service plinker. My rifles will handle pest control.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would disengage the automatic safety.

    What others should know:

    I view this thing as a toy meaning I have low expectations on its accuracy. I don't plan to shoot competitively with it. It's a low powered fun gun Just what I wanted.

    Things I liked:

    Over all fit/finish is excellent for this price point. Usually a pistol at this quality would cost over 100 bucks.....easy. I was very impressed with this pistol. Pretty accurate using crosman premier wadcutter or Excite wadcutter pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would have liked a little bit lighter trigger but once you get used to it, you will be hitting bulls.

    What others should know:

    If you are thinking about buying this pistol just do it. It is not expensive at all and it really is fun to shoot. No Co2 to worry about here. Just load and shoot till you can't no more. Umarex hit a home run with this pistol. Get one before you can't any more.!!!!
