Things I liked: I was lucky to buy a refurb at a reduced price. Other then a raggedy box, everything looked new. I found the "plain" stock (with a relatively short length of pull) to fit well when using the open sights. I love the open sights, more like "target sights" then the cheap sights that often show up on lesser guns. Even with my aging eyes, I was able to easily find my target and shoot with consistency. Sights were dead on at 20 yards. I was shooting off-hand standing at 20 yards and I hit everything I targeted. In fact, while I was planning to put a nice scope on my gun, I may leave the open sights, just for the fun factor. At some point I'll probably scope it, just to see how accurate she is out to 50 yards. The trigger is great and I won't touch it. Compares well to the Weirauch Rekord trigger. I didn't notice any recoil, although I was shooting with the artillery hold. Mine is the .22 caliber, but I think this would make a fine springer field target gun. Two thumbs way up!

Things I would have changed: Nothing so far.

What others should know: This is a heavy gun. For me that's a positive, but I can see young shooters struggling with the weight. For those who Like walkin' the woods, I'd suggest installing sling swivels and a sling. I found that I liked the Diana trigger better then the Rekord. That being said, the first stage was a bit long and some may want to adjust a bit. The Diana reminded me of shooting a Swiss K11 rifle with a long first stage trigger with crisp and light second. Very sweet to me.

Things I liked: Side cock. 1100 fps spec with 177 pellets. Heavy weight. Adjustable trigger. Accurate. Lethal.

Things I would have changed: Lighter stock. Different scope mount rail or furnish shims. Longer barrel.

What others should know: Front sight is plastic. Muzzle shroud is plastic. Side lever cocking takes some strength and effort but not excessive. Not a toy. This thing is lethal on yard pests. Scope base is problematic for me. Nikon 6-18x40 almost ran out of elevation. This an adult air rifle. I had an old Chinese side cocker for 20 yrs. Really like the concept. This rifle even sounds the same as the $50 Chinese springer when cocking. I am 4 for 4 on squirrels as of today. Broke in and sighted in with 40 Meisterkuglen pellets. There is probably a more accurate pellet and I hope either PA or an other owner lets me know. A little spendy but a quality piece of kit.

  • Haleigh from USA asked:

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

    • Mark from USA:

      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:

      TO6 trigger.

  • Charles from USA asked:

    I have trouble completely disengaging the bear trap safety on my RMS 48. I have completely cocked the gun.

    • Mark from USA:

      The gun probably needs ton be serviced.
