5.0 5.0

Things I liked:

Accuracy. Finding the right pellet is paramount. The best pellet I have found for this rifle is the H&N Barracuda Hunter Extreme .177 cal. Bye bye squirrels!

Things I would have changed:

Heavy rifle perhaps the option of a synthetic stock would reduce the weight

What others should know:

The iron sights are ok but add a scope using loctite on all screws as this rifle has some kick.

Things I liked:

Going on 4 years and 11,000 pellets, and have enjoyed all of it. Replaced 3 seals, just broke the trigger leg spring (need to order one), and noticed the stock has cracked inside at the receiver inletting. I have tried all sorts of pellets and keep coming back to Crosman Domes for plingking / accuracy and the H&Ns with a 5.54 head size for accuracy, Diabolo 14.3s are pretty good too. Accuracy is so so, I read other posts about accuracy out to 80 to 100 yards, but I question those ranges and one's range estimation skills. I measure off at 16, 25 and 45 meters, and never get groups as small as others have. 3/8" is pretty darn good at 16 meters.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing. The aluminum cocking rod lever has a tendency to bend, though I suspect that is an engineering design to prevent damage to the bear claw and other parts (the rod bends first)

What others should know:

Tends to vary in accuracy and POI by temp and altitudes. I live in the desert and find my POI changes by temperature and altitude. It's a pain, but after dealing with it in the .177 and .22, I have just learned to deal with it, each shooting session requires a re-zero, along with re-zeros throughout a long shooting day as temps changes. Scope is centered, just have to make clicks right or left, up or down, to re-zero.

Things I liked:

this gun is on the heavy side. it likes h&n 17.13 gr silver points. the trigger is excellent and shoot it with benchrest hold off the back porch. i mounted a hawke IR3-9x50 on her and have had no problems with a floating reticle. i think the all up weight is a little easier on the scope. i shoot rabbits at night in the wifes garden with the garage floodlite on. the iluminated reticle makes things real easy. it shoots rws 14.5 gr. pills really fine but won't anchor a rabbit unless you put one in his ear. the h&n silver points make a really distinct THUD when the pill hits home and that will do it for the rabbit.

Things I would have changed:

not a thing now that i've gotten used to a side lever

What others should know:

don't know what the muzz. vel. is with the silver points, but guess it's close to 700 fps. i'm really starting to like this big cannon. cocking is not very difficult even tho it has a fairly stout main spring. cleaning the bore is a pain in the neck because you can't push the cleaning rod thru the bore from the breech end. you have to be very careful with the rifling at the crown. i'm gonna try a 22 cal snake and see how that works. i had a lot of lead buildup in the rifling near the muzzle when i first started testing pellets. it's gotten much better after 400+ pellets thru the barrel

  • Michael from USA asked:

    Does this model have the same floating barrel as the 56 model?

    • Paul from USA answered:

      I think you mean sled, no it's a fixed directly to the stock.

  • Haleigh from USA asked:

    Is it possible to umbend the side lever on this gun?

    • Mark from USA answered:

      The inner rod of the cocking assembly is soft steel as a safety feature. It could be straightened if bent. You would have to remove it. The replacement part is Cocking Rod, Attaches to Cocking... (OFS) or contact Umarex USA . They may have the cocking rod in stock.

  • ELVIS from USA asked:

    Which series trigger does this have? T05, T06

    • Mark from USA answered:

      TO6 trigger.
