Things I liked:

Great all inclusive package. Perfect for backyard shooting.

Things I would have changed:

Composite receiver.

What others should know:

This is my first PCP and I couldn't be more pleased. I assembled the pump, mounted a UTG true hunter 3x9x40 and set up to pump. The pump is not a precision piece of equipment from what I can tell, but it gets the job done. Again, this is my first PCP set up so I really dont have anything to judge it by. However, there seems to be a little slop in the pump handle. After 126 pumps (I can see why people buy compressors) the gun was filled. I loaded both magazines (comes with 2) with my standby crossman premier 14.3 domes. It took me a few rounds to get dialed in but once I was sighted in the fun factor kicked in! This is an accurate gun. Did I bust out my caliper and measure my groupings at 30 yards? No, that is not the kind of shooter I wanted something that I can hit where I put the crosshairs. This gun delivers exactly that. I do enjoy shooting my RWS 34 (.22) but having the ability to keep welded to the scope for multiple shots is great. I would strongly recommend this gun!

Things I liked:

When it works, it is accurate.

Things I would have changed:

The magazine and loading design is terrible. Jams several times per magazine until I now have a jam I cannot clear less than 1 month after purchase. I now own a $400 paper weight.

What others should know:

Avoid anything with this magazine design until improved.

    Things I liked:

    It's light weight easy to handle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Sling studs and a forward rail for bipod . I would add another spacer and barrel brace .

    What others should know:

    For the price it is a very good air rifle . I expected more accuracy after reading all the reviews but it ain't bad . I'm getting 3/4 inch groups at 50 yards with a couple of pellets and two different slugs . I have not tuned for one particular pellet or slug. The gun is still set from factory . I belive that will make a difference on accuracy. I have been shooting rabbits out of my beans in my garden I have shot 1 out to 60 yards with a nsa 23 gr. Slug . It has been doing its job . All in all I am happy with the purchase the pump and time to pump it up is fine . I have shot Crossman premiere 14 gr. Nsa pellet 17.3 and nsa's 20.2 23. 27 grain slugs it seems to like them great out to 30 yards after that the groups change . The 17 is good at higher pressure. The 27 is good at 28 to 2100 psi and the 23 is where I can shoot out farther at all pressures. The Crossman shoots good all around but can't buck the wind. The 23 gr. Nsa slug does it's in a .217 diameter. Still going to test.

    Things I liked:

    honest. The adverts for it are spot on. Light. Quiet. I added a Donny Ronin to be a bit overkill on the sound suppression. Takes a single shot tray from my avenger easily.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not something to change but I read other reviews where the presdure starts to drop dramatically below 2800 with each shot. I have mine tuned to maximum (all my guns are) and i get 8 good shots until around 2800 then it goes almost empty. not a big deal. It fills up quickly!

    What others should know:

    880 feet per second with fx hybrid slugs. About 38 foot pounds. I am trying h and n rabbit magnums today to see if she can break 40 foot pounds. Incredibly accurate. It loves slugs.

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP air rifle and let me just say, this is an excellent little first PCP air rifle. I don't have anything to compare it too but I really like it. It is very accurate, light weight, and you get a good bit of shots out of a single fill. I saw a lot of bad reviews talking about the hand pump but mine works great. I have refilled the rifle around 20 times so far and the pump is still smooth and works perfectly. If you are debating on getting this one I would say go for it, I was very impressed with mine.

    Things I would have changed:

    Honestly I can't say I would change anything. What you get for the price is a great deal in my opinion.

    What others should know:

    Go slow and steady with the hand pump. Make sure you pull all the way up and push all the way down with each stroke. Don't get in a rush and try to go super fast, that will burn out the seals and ruin the pump. Also I would recommend keeping the air pressure above 2000psi at all times, it makes it much easier to pump back up and you still get around 40 shots from full fill.

    Things I liked:

    This gun is extremely accurate. Straight out of the box, I was getting 1/2", 10 shot groups at 50 yards. Averaging about 30 shots per fill at the lowest hammer setting. Great value for entry-level PCP.

    Things I would have changed:

    The fit of the pellets in the magazine is very sloppy. I would change the tolerances, to get a tighter fit.

    What others should know:

    Hand pumping is a chore. Not at all practical for uses such as Pest Control, or hunting.

    I don't have the .25 origin yet. I do have the .22. I think it would be the bees knee if umarex made these in a Bullpup model like the AV Avenger. after all they share similer dimensions. I would buy one in a heart beat

    Things I would have changed:

    Make a Bullpup!

    Things I liked:

    I have the Umarex Origin in both .22 and now .25 cal, they are my first venture into PCP shooting. I really like the shot count, I fill to 3500 psi and stop at 2000 psi. I'm getting 50 shots with the .22 , I have five magazines and it works out perfect! With the .25 caliber I easily get 24 shots (three magazines) at the same pressure range. I started with a hand pump and it took about 100-110 pumps to fill from 2000 psi to 3500 psi, pretty easy to fill ! I now have a knock off electric pump and it does the hard work and in the 3-4 minutes it takes to fill I have reloaded the magazines and am ready to go again!

    Things I would have changed:

    The plastic cover on the stock for the fill port will tear off immediately and is hard to get back in place, I took an exacto blade and chamfered the edges of the holes in the stock and this helps.

    What others should know:

    The .25 caIiber received had a low shot count, I was only getting 14-15 shots max from 3500 psi to zero! It was also filling much quicker than my .22 caliber. I suspect the "ever pressure" piston was stuck. PA offered to take it back but I went directly to Umarex for the repair. Custom service was excellent with both Pyramyde Air and Umarex! About two weeks later I had a replacement .25 caliber Origin and it has been flawless.

    Things I liked:

    This rifle has become one of my favorites because of accuracy and light weight. It is not regulated. However, it has a feature that is usually only found on regulated guns (see Avenger) - an adjustable bolt. I use air guns at short distance target shooting in my backyard. Since I don't need much power, I adjusted the bolt to minimize the air released per shot. Since the gun has a max fill of 3625 PSI, you can get a lot of shots per fill and a quieter gun in the process. It is worth the money.

    Things I liked:

    I like everything about this rifle. The stock is ergonomic and nice, the accuracy is fantastic and it has been dependable after 1.5yrs of use. I have had zero issues with the hand pump even though I do realize some have. I think it is very unfair for some to have given such a low rating based on the pump when this rating should be about the rifle. This really is a solid 4 star rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, it has been flawless.

    What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    Well, I may just be lucky but I am lovin this rifle & pump combo. Yes, you have to get a technique that works for you when using the pump, and yes, you have to maintain the pump per instructions but the darn thing works well. The rifle is amazing in that with relatively few pumps you can charge her up from 1500 to 3000 psi and get about 25 shots that are well placed and consistent. Bein an ole man (72) I need to rest intermittently when pumping but DANG BOY, SHE IS A SHOOTER. I have had no issues with the magazine- works well as advertised. Now, all that being said, keep in mind that this is my first PCP rifle. While experienced with springers and gas piston break barrels (really enjoy my .30 Hatsan Vortex) I was quite hesitant to venture into the PCP realm. Been fun and especially cool for quiet shooting but I admit that other than having a new experience with light weight quiet pellets I am at a loss to any advantage over a quality .22LR. Always fun to try new things though.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rifle is surprisingly light, and therefore a bit difficult for me to hold steady being used to a more substantial feel, but shooting off a rest this becomes a non-issue. A single shot tray would be appreciated, as would sling swivels but not a big deal.

    What others should know:

    If you are thinking of venturing into the world a PCP I can not think of a better purchase. What can I tell you? ITS A GAS ! ;-)

    I'm loving this rifle. The EPS system is working hard. I'm up in Alaska and it is winter. I have had this rifle out in -20 temps. I only loose 500psi in these temps. No change in POI. I'm running Crossman Premier Domed 14.3gr at around 940 to 950 FPS muzzle velocity. Shot to shot this rifle shoots with an average 2 fps deviation.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would love to see this chambered in .25
