Umarex Embark Youth Air Rifle

  • Spring-piston breakbarrel
  • Single-shot
  • Automatic safety system
  • Ambidextrous, all-weather composite stock
  • Vented cheekpiece
  • Rifled barrel
  • Adjustable rear sight
  • fixed front sight
  • Automatic safety
  • Rubber recoil pad
  • Easy to cock--only 17 lbs. cocking effort!
  • Ideal for training younger shooters or new shooters of any age

The official rifle of the Student Air Rifle Program, the Embark breakbarrel really ups the ante for youth airguns. Featuring a distinctive green thumbhole stock, this 5lb air rifle is easy to carry and even easier to cock. With a cocking effort of 17lbs, cocking and reloading will be a breeze for nearly anyone.

The Embark’s ergonomics make it easy to control with its raised cheekpiece and grip ridges for a solid hold. This youth shooter launches .177 pellets at speeds up to 510 fps—more than enough speed for backyard plinking and target practice. Let your young shooter learn on open sights, or give them an optical advantage by mounting a scope to the 11mm Dovetail rail.

If you’ve got a young shooting enthusiast at home, the Embark is where to start.

Things I liked: Small size for youth beginner rifle. Shoots well. Very accurate. Color of stock helps keeping track of ownership where several youth are congerated.

Things I would have changed: Nothing

Things I liked: I've purchased this rifle to teach my 7 years old daughter shooting. Considering this purpose I can say that: 1) Overall ergonomics allows 7 years old to shoot this rifle successfully of the bag. 2) Considering weight and stock size I would say that 9-10 years old should be easily able to shoot it off-hands. 3) Trigger is smooth enough to allow making accurate shots. After a couple of short lessons my daughter consistently makes half-inch groups at 5 yards, what is reliable bulls-eye for for AR-5/10 target. Now about real accuracy. In my hands, at 10 yards off bag it puts 5 pellets into 3mm hole (~1/8") hole, so it can reliable hit inner 9 ring of AR-5/10. It seems to me that with a pip sight it will good enough to 10 (inner) ring. Nuff said. What it is: A perfect starter's rifle, reliable and accurate enough to produce consistent results for learning how to shoot and for local competitions. More than "good enough" for money.

Things I would have changed: The only negative impression is the breech lock. It is enough put gun on the bag with any vertical velocity (or drop it on the bag from just an inch of height) and breech will open. I would really prefer to have a lever to break it, that to rely on relatively weak spring lock. However it does not cause any problems with actual shooting.

Things I liked: The Umarex Embark is a great break barrel rifle for a beginning shooter, or for plinking in the backyard. This is one of the most "backyard" friendly springers I own. The rifle is very quiet and at 500 fps won't alarm the neighbors. This rifle and my Diana 240 Classic are both my favorite for hours of plinking fun. The barrel is 16.5 inches and the stock is very comfortable to hold with its pistol grip. This gun is essentially the Ruger Explorer with a few differences. First the high visibility green stock. The front sight is protected by a plastic globe unlike the Ruger and the rear sight feels better quality with precise adjustment. This is a very light gun and very easy to cock. A dovetail mount with scope stop is ready to accept an optic if you choose. This is a good 15 yard gun in my experience. The Umarex Embark is not a hunter and not for pest control. This is a target gun only and is a great first choice for a inexperienced shooter. The safety engages automatically

Things I would have changed: Fiber optic sights in the front and rear would be nice as well as a slightly longer pistol grip. All three finger are a tight fit for an adult. Price point at 100 bucks seems a little high although overall fit and finish and quality are good.

What others should know: If you are partial to springers like I am and want to teach a new shooter the basics of shooting their first springer, this would be a great beginner rifle. Easy cocking for even the smallest of individuals. Not pellet picky like some others.
