Things I liked: A beautiful gun and extremely accurate from a bench rest with both JSB 15.89 and JSB 18.13 grain .22 cal. pellets. A bit heavy for me to shoot accurately off hand. Fit and finish is very nice.
Things I would have changed: If possible, make it a bit lighter. Also beef up the pin connecting the cocking levers to the spring mechanism. Mine broke after 250 to 300 shots. So I sent it back to Umarex USA today at a cost of about $65.00 for shipping both ways. I have seen other reviews complaining about this pin breaking so I'm hoping the replacement pin specs have been up graded to address this problem.
What others should know: Though this rifle is extremely accurate for a springer, it does not live up to the advertised power specs. Mine shot the JSB 15.89 g averaging 748.5 ft/sec yielding 19.78 ft lb and the 18.13 g averaged 698.6 ft/sec yielding 19.66 ft lb of energy. The .22 cal. Hatsan 95 I purchased as a gift for my brother averaged 19.50 ft lb of energy at 30% of the cost.
Things I liked: Very well built and beautiful air gun. Great trigger. Easy cocking. Accuracy with JSB 15.89 grains .5 to 1.5 inch at 20 yards. Not hold sensitive.
Things I would have changed: This gun is very heavy. To put this in perspective, it is heavier than my M1 Garand, my Sks, my M1A, my 45 70 Marlin, pretty much heavier than any other gun I have. No way to put a strap on it easily, and can't mount a bit pod without drilling into stock. Shooting freehand is very difficult due to weight, and I am not weak. The use of a strap during shooting would be helpful. These issues limit this to a bench gun in my opinion. Gun is too heavy to carry and to shoot off hand.
Things I liked: I have owned the 460 for 30 days. The accuracy with JSB Exact Jumbo 15.89gr. is pretty terrific. I have 700 rounds through mine. H&N FTT Powers are great too. I can sit on the deck of my steps and hit bottle caps @ 40yds just holding the rifle and resting the forehand arm on my knee! The fit and finish is pretty sweet and it's not that heavy at all. I think it cocks easy. ( I am a 58 year old and I am 5'11", and 175 pounds) The T06 trigger is super...
Things I would have changed: The cocking lever pin on mine broke @ about 450 rounds. I purchased a new one from PA because I am waiting for Umarex USA to respond. The fact is this pin breaking has been a well documented issue with this rifle. I have replaced it with a tool steel, polished, stainless, machine pin. It's smoother and it's the kind of steel that should be used in such a high stress point.
What others should know: The energy is around 21-22 pounds. The pellets that are accurate are going around 800-835 depending on weight. I am glad I didn't let knowing about the substandard cocking lever pin didn't stop me from making the purchase. If you don' t own an underlever this is a good one for $500...

My 460 Magnum chronographs only 508 fps with a 14.5 gr pellet. Is there some kind of maintenance I can do to get my piston pressure back up or does the spring just get weak over time?
Sounds like either a bad piston seal or a broken spring. I would recommend getting the rifle looked at by a competent air rifle tuner/smith
What is the foot lbs. with the 22 cal
Totally depends on the pellet weight and the actual F.P.S. that your rifle is putting out.
Anyone had a problem of the cocking lever no longer locking into place? The right-hand side release paddle ("bear trap?") grinds into the wood. Only had it for 18 months but put hundreds of pellets through it without any issue. Hoping I won't have to send it back to Umarex, not easy from where I live. Thank you for any advice/help.
There is a screw in the top of the front sight that adjusts the ball that locks the cocking lever into place. You can tighten that up a little and your world will be great again ;)
I had to cobble a fix for the cocking arm in order to keep mine from dropping down. This rifle now sets in the closet unused now.
