Umarex Gauntlet Air Rifle
PCP airgunners long for affordable guns that are consistent as well as powerful, and Umarex has answered the call!
The Gauntlet PCP repeater that balances tremendous shot strings, with incredible power and accuracy all for a competitive price. With an 1150 psi regulator, the Gauntlet uses less air; improving accuracy, and the amount of shots per charge on its 3000 psi tank. Once the pressure is low, you can either refill the tank using the standard Foster quick connect fitting or simply unscrew the tank with the included pressure release key to switch out your tank. As long as the pressure gauge is in the green, your shots will stay consistent. Umarex tested both .177 (7.9 grain) and .22 (14.3 grain) lead pellets, achieving 60(.22) or 70 (.177) shots on a single fill! With a velocity of 1000 fps in .177 and 900 fps in .22, the Gauntlet has no problem sending lead downrange in a hurry.
Each caliber features a single shot tray and a 10 round rotating magazine so you can spend less time reloading and more time taking rapid fire bolt-action shots. The fully-moderated barrel quiets your shots, making it a perfect platform for blasting away at backyard targets or eliminating pests. Its all-weather synthetic stock comes with integrated studs for the addition of a sling for convenient carrying in the field. A standard dovetail mount is ready for mounting the optics system of your choice.
Umarex threw down the gauntlet for a PCP that's accurate, consistent, and affordable. What more could you ask for?

Things I liked: The gun is priced well for an entry gun. It shoots well after getting into the trigger and doing what has to be done on a low priced gun with a low tech trigger. It shoots well up to the 40 yards I have to shoot it. It has many one hole groups under its belt.
Things I would have changed: The POI moves with a slight bump of the barrel because the shroud in heavy and it is held on by a collar on the thin barrel. There is not too much holding it steady. A device, made by a member of GTA is available to couple the barrel to the air tank increasing the overall rigidity of the barrel so it doesn't move as easy.
What others should know: I have heard RUMORS that there are going to be manufacturing changes made to the gun already. A larger pressure gauge, an internal change in the regulator, the proper stamp on the regulator from1200 PSI to the 1100 PSI it is set for and a change in the fore grip to make it better adaptable to the stock. If these rumors are true, I wonder if Umarex will be stand up and modify the first production models for us or just let us live with what we got? All this remains to be seen.
Things I liked: Price was what attracted me to this PCP rifle.
Things I would have changed: Maybe a better illustration of how to load the pellet magazine. Easy to get it wrong if not familiar with this setup. Consequences are jammed pellets, deformed in magazine, or rod spears through pellets.
What others should know: Extremely hard to cock gun. Like some medieval device requiring brute strength. When it did cock felt like metal to metal spring crunching parts. Pull the trigger and nothing. Would not fire, more jammed damaged pellets to remove. Finally banged the stock on the floor to get the bolt to come forward. Oiled lightly and repeatedly cocking seems to have loosened the bolt. I know I only paid $300 for the gun, but this is ridiculous. There is obviously no Quality Control at Umarex. Are these guns bench tested or fired at the end of the assembly line?? I will have to think hard before buying another bargain gun.
Things I liked: The accuracy is amazing. This is my first PCP so I knew it would be much easier to shoot accurately than a springer. I also saw the reviews and videos with impressive accuracy. It took me 10 shots to sight it in. I then shot a .5 inch group with 10 shots at 20 yards. I was never able to get anyway close to that accuracy or consistency with my Benjamin Prowler. This was from a bench, military hold, high end/accurate pellets (JSB) and with the same scope. So if you have never shot a PCP, this gun will put a smile on your face and have you shooting like a pro. There is very little recoil (nothing compared to a springer) and the noise level is reasonable. I found the gun is great for pest control which is why I bought it. I have already dropped 3 rats, all with instant kill head shot. This gun, plain and simply, delivers the goods. I use JSB 15.89 grain pellets (.22 cal) and found them very accurate so have not tried any other pellets.
Things I would have changed: The bolt is kind of sticky (although getting smoother as I use it) and heavy to pull back. I realize this is a "budget" PCP so a minor complaint at best. I use to have an 80's era Benjamin pump. It was easier to cock (though obviously not at powerful). The trigger is light and I have no problem placing shots but it is not exactly smooth, a little catchy/sticky as you pull the trigger. Probably what I find the most annoying is the safety. It is heavy to move and has sharp edges. I'm not sure why this needs to be so heavy or uncomfortable to use.
What others should know: If you are looking into getting into the PCP air guns and don't want to spend a grand, this is the gun for you. For the money, it is unbeatable. I am pumping this up with a hand pump. I'm about 175 lbs and have to use my full body weight to get close to the 3,000 psi limit. This just takes some time and patience but not a big deal. I don't shoot a lot so the pump works fine for me.

I sent my .22 gauntlet back for not holding air. Got the new one and it has a different gauge and regulator. Question is brand and quality?
According to Umarex, same quality, just a different source.
This airgun Umarex Gauntlet 2018 model...
The Gauntlet actually hit shelves in late 2017, so I am not sure what you are asking. If you're asking specifically about the .25 caliber, Umarex said they are shooting for a summer release.
Yes , question..
Is that a question?
When will the .25 be available
At SHOT they were saying Summer/Fall of 2018
