Things I liked: I like the 30 shot magazines (I have 7 of them) and they are relatively easy to load especially if you use a needle point tweezer and seat the pellets with a ball point pen. I've fired about 1000 rounds so far without a jam, but do infrequently have a misfire. I use only RWS R10 Match 7.0 grain pellets in all my pellet guns both hand guns and rifles. In three years of use I find them to be the most accurate and jam free pellets although a bit expensive. Get a about 210 shots with one CO2 cylinder ( hence the 7 magazines) before starting to lose power or accuracy. Do all my shooting in a 25 foot indoor gallery. As far as accuracy goes, I can put 30 rounds into a 1 inch circle at 25 feet using an inexpensive red laser sight and bench rest. I have about a dozen CO2 guns, pellet and BB, and i would say the accuracy is a little better than average for this group at this distance. It's a lot of fun to shoot at the Venturi self-rotating, don't have to reset, moving target.
Things I would have changed: Wish the trigger pull were adjustable (it's about 8.5 to 9 lb) . Am teaching my grand daughters how to shoot and the trigger is a bit stiff for them. The price is a bit high although the quality also appears to be high. At the current price they should throw in 3 or 4 extra magazines.
What others should know: Had a similar experience to Monte discussed in their review on 2017-08-12. The first time I shot it, I shot 210 rounds and decided to take the CO2 cylinder out. Apparently there was still too much pressure and as the cylinder reached close to the end of the threads it blew back and shot across the room. Fortunately no one was standing in its path. It blew the seals in the gun and i sent it back to PA and they either repaired it or sent me a new one. Have not had any problems with the 'new' one. They replaced the CX4 ,no charge and no fee for shipping either direction. Have had excellent service from Pyramydair for the past 3 years; I do nearly all of air gun business with them.
Things I liked: Very well made, relatively light even with the heavy CO2 canister installed, great concept to allow 30 shots to be fired without reloading, grip can be installed by adding a bottom rail, well made custom fitting case, easy to load magazines, zero misfires when you use the special tool to set the pellets, reasonable price for what you get, works great with inexpensive RWS Hobby pellets.
Things I would have changed: Would include more than one magazine (as they cost $25 each), would include a bottom rail so that I wouldn't have to spend $50 to get one so that I can install a grip, would pay for shipping back to the factory if a repair was needed under warranty. I'd also like to see some semblance of accuracy beyond 150 shots. There's plenty of air left to propel pellets, but the gun shoots about six inches low at 25 yards after that.
What others should know: I bought this rifle because it was so different than the other airguns I own. The concept is great. The gun looks and feels great, and is made of very high quality materials. BUT. . . you will blow the seals if you unscrew the tank too fast while it still contains air. That's what happened the first time I used the gun. The accuracy dropped so dramatically after 150 shots that I decided to not waste more pellets and put in a new tank. But there was so much air left in the tank and I probably unscrewed the can too fast that it blew the seals. I had the gun repaired by Umarex under warranty but I had to pay ($38) to ship the gun to them. My biggest pet peeve is that the gun loses so much accuracy after 150 shots shat it becomes useless at that point. I'm talking six inches low at 25 yards. I paid for the gun but also a red dot scope ($85), a bottom rail ($50), a grip ($40), three extra magazines ($75), and spare canisters ($80) plus pellets. I'll sell this gun now at a loss.
Things I liked: Compact size, 30 round capacity, smooth trigger pull, Picatinny rail for add-ons
Things I would have changed: Add an accessory rail on the underside. The case is flimsy, so I would drop the case and reduce price accordingly. Also, include two magazines in the package.

is there any other pellets i can use in my beretta cx-4 storm rifle besides the crosman 7.4 grain pointed pellets? Rich
I hear often a 90 gr cartridge can be used instead of the 88. Is that true for this gun?
Absolutely. These Air Venturi ones: Air Venturi Pre-Filled 90-Gram CO2... will work well.
yes i use the jt 90 gram in my beretta cx-4 storm rifle, it works great!!
Doesn't this gun have a .22 cal. Model? Could've sworn I saw it offered before with a max velocity of 450fps. I really want this gun in .22 or bigger, I can't stand those tiny little no damage producing .177 cal. pellets. Rather have a straw n a pea. They're useless unless for competition accuracy which this gun is definatly not made for so what would it hurt to bulk up the power a little if there isn't a .22 already like I thought I saw in pyramid's magazine but it's not in the new catalog, just the pea shooter version, big let down, would've had more sales in .22 gaurenteed! I think most n not just myself have moved on from the old school pea shooter plinking n want to produce more damage on impact, but maybe that's just me and my recent purchase of the Bull Dog .357 combo a few months ago in camo color and couldn't have even imagined the power n with that the terminal damage upon impact with anything n everything. I had an old safe I cut the front door off of n put it against my cinder block wall n then I shot a perfect silver dollar size hole in the safe n upon pulling the safe off the wall I noticed the same size hole through my wall n a big chip n crack on the neighbor's side. The safe itself is 2.5" thick n solid compact sand or something n is even fireproof yet every shot from .98grain slug up to 145grn Hornady slug which is biggest I've tried thus far all passed right through both sides of the safe one side of the wall, crazy power! Expensive but you'll fall in love after first shot hits bullseye; most accurate gun I've ever shot, also most powerful through a ten shot string before refill and the bolt action is smooth n cool looking as can be. Gun looks Real! ADHD; anyone relate?
No .22 cal version exists
