Things I liked:

Very accurate

Things I would have changed:

The degassing . I've received 2 Gauntlet2 in .25 cal and had the same degassing problem. The first time I returned it was no problem.The 2nd time was a PIA. I chatted with Doug, and he gave me the 3d degree then told me to return it to Umarex for a Warramtu claim. So much to "Returns being painless' as stated in Pyramyd airs Return Policy. He had me so PO with all the irrelevant questioning.

What others should know:

Yeah. If you end up chatting with Doug for warranty issues, HE WILL MAKE IT EXTREMELY HARD FOR YOU!!

Good shot count, plenty of power, accurate

Things I would have changed:

The auto fire feature

What others should know:

After having the rifle for about 10 months, when the bolt is cocked back and then forward the rifle fires on its own ! No trigger press involved. I called Pyramyd Air, they and told me to call Umarex.

    Power. Accuracy. Umarex Customer Service - They are quick to respond and provide competent repair service.. It’s a fine bench rested gun anf is truly an excellent value.

    Things I would have changed:

    It is loud .. my only PCP which truly needed a moderator. It is a bit gangly .. too much for off-handed hunting in my opinion.

    What others should know:

    You can buy an Umarex with confidence .. their customer service has been exceptional.

    Things I liked:

    I never EVER thought of say these words!!! BUT, my 25 M-Rod, has been beaten!!! I own SEVERAL airguns, and this 30 is setting in first place!!! Did the 10 fir $10, NEVER buy a gun without doing that!!! The gun is a dead accurate, flat shooting, powerhouse!!! Furthest shot 75-80 yard Squirrel, while out Coyote hunting with it today... I'll do what I wish EVERYONE should be made to do, and give you what the gun loves... LOVES, JSB match 50,15gr "7.62mm" LOVES JSB KnockOut's 50,15gr "7.62mm" LOVES: FX 44.5gr Hybrid slugs "7.62mm" "{HATES}" Pollymags!! Sighted in at 60ish yards all within a dime to a nickel AND, ALL 3 SHOOT THE SAME SPOT!!! You CAN use 1 of each and they WILL be touching each bullet!!! Outta ALL my guns ONLY my M-Rod will do that besides this 30... My 25 M-Rod will put JSB's AND Pollymags in the same hole! I can shoot 2 of each, an they'll be in, or touching the others holes @50 yards... This 30 will shoot all 3 the same! I LOVE THIS GUN!!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Heavy but very well balanced... Had to engineer a sling mount at the top, drilled and installed one at the bottom... They should be able to incorporate one into the gun during manufacturing I'd think though... The only true complaint I have, would be that when it's being carried on your shoulder with the sling, the bolt is not tight so it WILL open and slide down threw the mag. So be careful to take the mag out FIRST so you won't double load it... I fixed the issue easily with a rubber band like on my QB Chief... Don't buy that QB Chief, I have 2 "what a headache" So just take a rubber band, wrap it around the trigger guard, then twist the rubber band once, and put it around your bolt... It will hold the bolt down while washing with it shouldered... AND you can still work the bolt easily, it just won't let it open and slide down, while your carrying it with a sling... That's my only complaint is the bolt, and how much does a rubber band cost? 99 cents for 100...

    What others should know:

    You will NOT regret buying this gun, that been said, there are Lemons!!! That's why I do the 10 fir $10... But I've dealt with PA, and ONLY since it's opened, and have NEVER had an issue they haven't fixed immediately. That's why I only buy from them... Well besides them losing my account last year, and having to make this new one, that sucked, but anyway lol

    Things I liked:

    The performance of this gun so far has been a bit beyond belief. Talking about consistence shot after shot after shot. I pretty much suck as far as hitting my mark when it comes to shooting, I have always been in way too much of a hurry to get a decent shot. This gun makes me feel like some sort of sharp shooter lol. It does just as advertised and it does it shot after shot after shot. I changed out pellets from lighter to heavy and back again with no adjustments to my shooting and on paper it looked like I had just shot a few times as they kept going through the same hole.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not sure what happened to this particular gun, but mine came in pretty rough shape. I had screws stripped out that hold the shroud over the air cylinder and just over all dirty or like it had been sitting out for a long time. When I told Pyramyd Air about it they looked to see if they had some replacement screws for me, but they didn't so they suggested I contact the manufacture for some or I could return the gun and have it replaced. Well I had already mounted a scope and bi-pod and taken it to the range by the time I had heard back so I am a owner.

    What others should know:

    Before I purchased this gun I had purchased the regular Gauntlet with the hunting kit included and I don't know who was responsible for the condition of that gun, but it was in excellent shape. I tried to find something that was dirty or finger prints, nothing is what I found. This gun was so clean I didn't want to shoot it much less touch it. I have never had a gun so clean ever. Things were not the same when I purchased the Gauntlet 2. This said, I would highly recommend this gun for anything you might have in mind for it. It makes bad shooters like me look good.

    Things I liked:

    Pros: PRICE! Seems solid, not that loud, and supressors are easily available. Good "entry level" rifle

    Things I would have changed:

    Cocking mechanism is brutal (at first at least), has de-gas underneath that must be VERY tight, heavyweight gun

    What others should know:

    Check tightness of de-gas screw upon receipt, feels like you are going to literally break it getting it cocked- as least the first few shots

    Things I liked:

    I haven't shot it as much as I would like but so far, it is shooting tight groups with both slugs and pellets. Plenty of power.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be a whole lot better if it was side lever instead of bolt action and maybe as a bullpup

    What others should know:

    I have only been getting 2 magazines before needing to refill

    Things I liked:

    Accurate and powerful. Excellent shot count and comfortable to shoot with the adjustable cheek piece.

    Things I would have changed:

    Fit and finish needs work, as a lot of reviewer‘s have commented On this . When I received mine today, the magazines could not be inserted due to metal burrs in the breach. It almost ruined my day. I had to take a small rubber mallet to get the magazine to get past the burrs, and after that, I had no problem. I received two magazines, gratis, with this air gun, and ordered five additional ones. All of the magazines had this problem. I would like to have had an adapter attached to the end of the shroud for silencer. I bought one from DonnyFL For $40 +5 dollar shipping. The trigger is horrible. It takes just one and a fraction pound of force to fire the gun but the travel is excessive and there’s really no indication as to when you’ll hit the spot that will fire the gun. I ordered a trigger kit from www.hajimoyoproductions.com

    What others should know:

    This is a big gun, I had to order a 53 inch hard case to accommodate it. It’s also relatively heavy. And balanced more towards the muzzcle. The force needed to cock the bolt is substantial., Yet the Gauntlet 2 claims to have 15% less force required than on the Gauntlet 1. I suggest that purchasers of this air gun have a look at Hajhimoto productions to see all of the ways you can upgrade, this air gun. I got the best results, accuracy, wise with JSB, Exact King, Heavy Diablo Mark II, 25 caliber at 33.95 grains which produced slightly more than 60 foot pounds of energy at about 902 ft./s. Pryamyd Air is my first choice for purchasing any type of air gun because of their 60 day satisfaction, guarantee and the testing services that they offer to make sure that you receive a gun that’s accurate and has no leaks. (I still can’t believe that such testing did not reveal the magazine insertion problem I had)

    Me gusta este rifle , es muy versatil y mas que nada; su esectitud; pues he logrado poner casi la segunda bala en donde entro la primera con mis propias balas que yo fabrico y esto es lo que mas me gusta.

    Things I would have changed:

    Me gustaria que tuviera un tanque de aire mas grande para poder tirar mas projectiles con una sola carga.

    What others should know:

    En este calibre ya he disparado como 200 projectiles sin novedad; yo he comprado 4 rifles de umarex ; el original 1 pero liquea o escapa aire atravez de la boca del canon y no he podido encontrar la parte para cambiarla; es lo que no me gusta ; que es muy dificil encontrar un lugar que venda refacciones para este rifle; solo ofrecen los sellos de reparar los escapes de aire. hace falta que le den a uno informacion de donde poder encontra las partes de reparacion para este rifle. con el rifle calibre .25 y calibre .30 hasta ahorita estan trbajando bien solo ya tengo problema con el rifle calibre .22 pues parece que la precion de aire se ah disminuido y no es lo suficiente fuerte para disparar el frojectil, es el descontento que tengo porque tambien lo acabo de comprar y solo he tirado como unos 200 projectiles y no se que es lo que ah pasado; estoy pensando en incrementar el tornillo para mas poder y no he podido encontrar informacion de ese problema.

    Things I would have changed:

    There are a few..Quality Control! Rough gritty heavy cocking, Shot loose screws after a hundred rounds.There is no leed in to the rifling making chambering next to impossible.No adjustable power.Floppy hand guard. Barrel support or lack of. No qd attachment on the front. 1/2 20 threaded muzzle.2 stage trigger

    What others should know:

    I really wanted to like this but its hard to, looks and feels good but the inconsistency and lack of qc is very frustrating. The very poor machining makes it gritty and rough. Dont bother w slugs I tried, a lot. Also pellet and hold sensitive shooting most too fast for accuracy. After Many different weights sizes brands I found 2 shoot well, getting nickel sized groups@36 yds. Ok not great, then starts to throw every few shots out.Pull it out next day and it shoots 1 inch off from zero. Go through it find loose screws fix clean but the issues never really go away. Zero, put away shoots a good group but over an inch off. Ive tried tight,loose clean,dirty pressures,temps barrel bands,polishing optics,mounts ammo holds,rests. Its just inconsistent, even if it wasnt possessed the shot cycle is violent,its heavy and loud. I fixed the things that bugged me making it a little more accurate and consistent never fixed. Leaving a burning hole in my pocket and low expectations. G2 .22 caliber

    What others should know:

    Umarex has had some leaking issues on these rifles. Pay the extra $10 for it to be tested before shipping. Also, if the rounds in the magazine don't line up with the breach when you load it the first time, watch a video of how it's done. If you load it just any ol way there's a chance it won't be correct.
