Umarex Octane Air Rifle Combo, Gas Piston
Here are the benefits of the Umarex ReAxis gas-piston:
While gas-pistons (also known as gas springs and gas rams) were originally touted as beneficial for airgun hunting since you can leave your gun cocked without fatiguing a metal spring, that's not the only reason you'd want a gas piston. Anyone who enjoys a smooth spring rifle should try a gun with a gas piston. Once you do, you won't ever want to go back to a gun with a metal spring!
Another point you'll want to remember about the Octane is the 3-year warranty. While most guns with gas pistons have a one-year warranty, Umarex goes the distance. Because some shooters are hesitant to try a technology new to them, they worry about support. The extra two years of warranty should take care of those concerns.

Things I liked: Gas piston, powerful, inexpensive and not bad looking.
Things I would have changed: Needs to go on a diet, too heavy.
What others should know: I've fired about 200 shots and it's still seems to be burning off excess oil. The first few shots were very loud, almost scary.
Things I liked: I have the Umarex Octane .22 caliber air rifle. I like the power to value, well worth it.
Things I would have changed: The scope is pretty good, except no mildotsn, not absolutely necessary. I did have to change, only because the reticle was loosened by the recoil shock after about two hundred rounds. Replaced it with a CenterPoint 3-9X32AO mildot scope.
What others should know: I did purchase the Archer Air Rifle XMV breech seal and shim kit. The breech seals and shims fit Umarex and Ruger Air Rifles, both .177 and .22 caliber. Also, all airgunners should have a chronograph for pellet velocity evaluations and to determine if your air rifles/guns are losing velocity due to breech seals or piston problems. Woodys World.
Things I liked: the power seems fine. Though I will need to fire through Chronogragh to check. It has gotten easier to cock an I have yet to fire a 75 rounds through it. It came zeroed and scope mounted.
Things I would have changed: So far, nothing yet. I will be testing the power.
What others should know: The gun appeared fairly easy to cock. Much easier than my Hatsan 100x vortex under-lever. I received pellet expansion of 2mm, from a distance of 16.25 feet. The pellet travelled through a half inch thick styrofoam, 3/4 inch framing ply, 1/2 inch particle board and got stuck in the dart board behind. All were lined up with virtually no space between. A few pellets almost made it through the dart board, in the same scenario. They deformed the other side of the dart board. Stay tuned.

Help! I have a RWS 48 .177 with X6 scope, shooting 10.6 Piranhas. Out to 50 yards is a pass through on small game, I want to increase grains to 11 - 14, but afraid of blowing gasket, can anyone recommend a heavy pellet that acceptable for my rifle? Thanks
You will not blow gasket using 11-14 grain pellets. Never shoot your rifle with no load/pellets in the breech. The lighter the load/pellet or intentional deiseling could result in that type of damage.
Any pellet 10.5 grains and heavier will do. You have to be able to tame the recoil and weight of this beast. It wont be the rifle, it will be you. The Crosman 4.00 grain and Gamo Air Star 4.20 grain will exceed that 1450 fps depending on the weather temperature. Buy a chronograph, then you will know.
If it really does 1450 fps then a heavier pellet will help tame it some . Rifles with that much power like heavier pellets . JSB makes some really good heavy pellets for magnum airguns.
Is this air rifle more accurate than the gamo hornet maxxim .22 or should i go with the gamo hornet maxxim.22 instead? By the way i will be shooting squirrels out to about 25 yards
A squirrel is toast at 25 yards with an Octane. I've shot right through one with 15.3 grain Exacts.One shot kills. Head shots preferred.
Anyone know of a plastic cheek riser to fit the Octane?
Haven't heard of any yet? You might check the airgun forums for ideas ?
