Umarex Octane Elite Air Rifle Combo, Gas Piston
Here are the benefits of the Umarex ReAxis gas-piston:
The Octane Elite follows in the footsteps of Umarex’s gas piston Octane Air Rifle. Already a great small game hunter, the biggest addition to this winning design is Umarex’s StopShox Anti-Recoil system. This feature is designed to cushion the forward thrust and recoil of the gas piston for a smooth shooting experience. The all-weather stock has been thickened up in all the right places. The new design has a wider rear stock for a better cheek weld, an enlarged pistol grip, and palm swell on the foregrip.
The Octane Elite gives shooters options for sighting with fiber optic green and red sights or use the included 3-9x40 AO scope for zeroing in on targets and small game. With the Octane Elite, you have all the advantages of a hard shooting a gas piston, with the attention to detail Umarex is known for.

Things I liked: Appearance, consistency shot to shot.
Things I would have changed: Show the true specs not what they wished the gun will do for FPS can not hit 1000fps with .22 alloy pellets, 860-870 with 14.3 lead
What others should know: Buy a Hatsan 95 springer 20.5fpe and accurate. The Octane is a neat gun but not a power house 18.13gr. @770-780 =23.5 fpe -24.5fpe the scope that came with the gun creeps. Meaning you make 4 clicks now it moves later so you think your zeroed but its creeped 1/2"or more over night.I noticed this when I would have to make 16clicks to gain an 1/8" the pick the gun up 4 hr.s later and the poi moved anther 1.25"s hopefully it will loosen up.
Things I liked: I did like the price and since I had a umarex octain in 177 cal. which I really like I decided to purchase the umarex octain elite in 22 cal
Things I would have changed: The trigger pull is terrible and the new shock absorber system makes the recoil seem excessive. I believe the older umarex octain was a much better rifle.
What others should know: I did call Umarex to tell them the problems but the rep. pretty well gave me a run around. and brushed me off. I can only shoot the gun about 25 times before my trigger finger is so sore I have to quit for the day. I don't know if it is the pressure I have to use to pull the trigger or if it is the safety lever jamming back against my finger when the barrel assembly recoils against the shock absorber.
Things I liked: Let me start by saying I am new to pellet guns. I was given a Crosman XT and added a Simmons scope and I was hooked. I ran out got my hands on a Gamo Whisper. At 10 yards I was shooting dimes freehand. New hobby. Groundhogs lookout! On to the Octane. I shouldered this gun at the local superstore. I wanted to research a bit and found this site. The price was much better here so I ordered the gun. Upon its arrival, I mounted the scope, and went out to give it a try. This gun is a completely different animal the my other guns. It took me 6 shots with the forearm resting on the deck rail to zero at 10 yds. It does give you a workout cocking this rifle, but man, it hits hard and consistent. Balance is good. The recoil system works. Just takes a bit to get used to. Right now, with the Umarex scope, I'm doing dime groups, but many same hole hits. So, lets see how it does over time. My hopes are high.

is this gun aloud in British Columbia canada

According to the specs the original octane has a 19.5 inch barrel and the Elite has a 15.6 inch barrel. Is this a misprint or is this StopShox system. If true, does the 4 inch difference in barrel length have an adverse effect the accuracy?
The longer barrel could be beneficial in longer range shots and minimal increase in velocity with magnum type air rifles. I would prefer a longer barrel for that reason. Long range sniper rifles using the largest caliber ammo do benefit in longer ranges and velocity to reach out further, especially with .50 caliber ammo. That is why snipers that made long range shots and kills used those longer barrels, especially in the Barrett sniper rifles. I have the regular, non-no shox Umarex Octane in .177 and .22 caliber by choice. I have no problems with the recoil. Get a chronograph. Woodys World
i just got this first shot with exact diablo sounded like a shotgun and i shot it a few more times and it is still really loud. i dont know what the problem is
There is no problem. For the .177, try 10.50 grain like the Ultra Magnum Premier. In .22 caliber try the 14.3 grain,or slightly heavier, Premiers. Plus give is several shots to burn off the oil. Woodys World.
That is because the factory oils and lubricants are burning off. Once you've put 50 shots or so down the barrel, it should quiet down. And if you are using .177 and have lightweight pellets (or even lightweight .22 pellets under 14 grains) you will want to go with heavier ammo. That will slow the gun down and in turn bring the noise down.
