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: I am trying to purchase an air rifle to fit my particular needs. Pyramyd Air seems to be the company that offers very good selections at competitive prices, as well as excellent descriptions of each model. In some cases an article had been written on a particular model having been tested, which is extremely helpful. Also, Pyramyd Air offers warranty information on all models, and offers a chat sight I found very helpful and useful, but I only came to experience all this after I found problems with my purchase. As far as my purchase goes, it was not what I was hoping for. However, the good thing with Pyramyd Air is their reputation to satisfy customers. So far, I have no complaint about handling my case, which is to return a deficient product and exchange it with a better product. Will keep you posted on the final result.
Things I would have changed: I think Pyramyd Air needs to be more discerning about marketing certain foreign made items. Although I blame myself for not being more thorough in my search, as I accepted the description of the Umarex Octane Elite AR Combo, I failed to do more research. It appeared this AR offered what I was looking for in performance and value. When I got the gun, everything changed. It was too heavy, more than I thought; the stock was cheap plastic, the barrel grip was loose, and it would not break the barrel for me without doing a lot of straining. I assume this gun was made outside the US as I'm not familiar with the brand name. Just sayin.
What others should know: I could not rate this gun for value or accuracy. I'm very disappointed in myself for buying it based on the description I read, rather than doing more research. Seemed like a very good buy for the money. Not so, in my opinion. I think it's worth the time and effort to read the reviews, research other websights that may offer the model your interested in and then call Pyramyds' chat line to verify any concerns or issues you may have with that particular model, before you make a decision. Well, that's what I am doing now anyway. Live and learn. Good luck!
Things I liked: This is a very powerful, accurate rifle! I really like the way the recoil is managed and the way the sound level is controled. The scope appears to be excellent and I really hope it holds up over the long term, as it is a huge asset.
Things I would have changed: The rifle is heavy - feels like I'm carrying an M1 Garand. But - that also lends some stability when shooting offhand, so...
Things I liked: Absolute powerhouse! Nice quality air gun. Accurate with good pellets. The adjustable trigger is nice. The scope has nice zoom features.
Things I would have changed: The recoil. After 20 shots my shoulder was sore like I shot a large caliber firearm.
What others should know: Absolutely a great buy, quality, accurate, I've been shooting 2in groups at 35yds with no trouble (using good pellets). It does kick like a mule!

Will the Diana moveable scope mount work on this gun to save the scope?
How many f/p does a Umarex octane.177 have? I was considering purchasing a hawk 4x16 -44 vantage but it says not to be used on a pellet gun that exceeds 12 f/p. Worried that the heavy magnum recoil will eventually ruin the scope!
The Umarex Octane is a 20+ FTP gun. You need a Hawke Airmax or UTG/Leapers scope. They are fully airgun rated.
