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: 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.
Things I liked: What's not to like? Powerful, accurate, comfortable. I find this gun to be absolutely perfect.
Things I would have changed: Add sling mounts. Definitely not a deal breaker though.
What others should know: If you're looking for a solid dependable.22 that comes with a good scope, look no more.
Things I liked: This is the first air rifle I have owned since the '70's era Crossman and Benjamin pump up's. Wow! You've come a long way baby! Everyone who sees this behemoth asks if I'm deer hunting, and what caliber? I am getting to know the rifle, I have owned .22's and shotguns in the past so shooting is not totally knew to me. I have only about 100 rounds through it, and I also had the "20 for 20" service done. I figured this would prevent me from receiving a defective rifle.It seems to have done just that. I have had zero problems with the gun, other than loose screws on the scope mount, all of them! I assume this is the cause of the rifle being quite a bit off, 6 inches, target. After sighting the rifle in using H&N Baracuda Match .22 Cal, 21.14 Grains, Round Nose, a heavy pellet, it is very accurate indeed. If using a bench rest I can get dime size groups at 25 yards. I also shot some 18 grain Baracuda hollow points with very little if any change in accuracy or hit points.
Things I would have changed: Trigger is sloppy. I really must learn how to work this out of the rifle. There are tutorials available. The trigger is my only real gripe, I feel with a better trigger my shooting would improve noticeably. After paying for the 20 for 20 service I would expect the screws and mounts to be tight. They were very loose on the scope mounts.
What others should know: If you are considering a first airgun purchase, this is a good one. Note: one must be in fairly good shape, and have full use of both arms and hands to cock this rifle. I figured out the best way for myself, which does not deviate from the manual much at all. I am very pleased with this rifle, and my main reason for purchasing it is to eliminate highly destructive groundhogs, which are getting out of hand here in West Michigan, at least on my 30 acres of alfalfa, holes all over.

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
Anyone know of a plastic cheek riser to fit the Octane?
I NEED HELP!!!!! Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo, Vortex Gas Spring VS Umarex Octane Air Rifle Combo, Gas Piston I want a .22 with good accuracy and powerful can someone help me find a good sniper or rifle it doesn't have to be these 2 rifles but I want a rifle with .22 I got $200 I can do $300 but I want the best I can get
Between those two guns, I would opt for the Octane because it comes with a better scope and has a better warranty. It's also a bit more powerful. Though, if you're not opposed to a spring gun, I would highly recommend the Walther Parrus. It's a very nice rifle for the money! Walther Parrus Air Rifle, Black...
