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: 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.
Things I liked: Fast shipping by Pyramid Air. 2 days.
Things I would have changed: Would like to have an American made gun and better quality control or testing before shipping.
What others should know: bought this gun because of good reviews. Checked all screws, 2 on barrel needed tightening, 2 were stripped. Unpacked it , mounted the scope and fired about 100 rounds. Could not get a consistent group with any of 5 different weight pellets. Scope was o.k. but could not adjust it any more to the left. Called Umarex and they said "send it back". Sent it back after paying UPS $45. for shipping. Waiting for word from Umarex. My opinion is; don't waste your money, pay a little more for an American made gun, if you can find one.
Things I liked: I like the price point for a powerful airgun that I use to control groundhogs that destroyed my garden. I purchased .22 cal with crow magnum pellets that go completely through 3/4" plywood at about 30 yards. The gas piston is quieter than my existing spring piston .177 gun. The chat function on pyramydair.com was fantastic. I think Bruce was the person's name. He asked me what I wanted to do and suggested this combo and the pellets. He was spot on. Great help. I'm very happy with my purchase.
Things I would have changed: In an effort to save money, I decided to NOT have pyramid air mount the scope and sight-in the gun. It took me about 25 shots to get the gun dialed in. I wouldn't change the purchase but next time would have pyramydair set it up.
What others should know: Leverage the chat function while browsing. The tech was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in arriving at a solution to replace the ineffective .177 cal spring loaded air rifle that I previously purchased at a big box store.

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
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.
This will be first break barrel which will be easier for a beginner to shoot this octane elite or the orginal octane in .22
There won't be a huge difference but the addition of the stop shox system will hopefully mean the scope lasts longer and holds zero, which was always a concern with the original octane.
