I recomend to everyone
July 3, 2013
I got it in the mail in 5 days and I was pretty skeptical at first. Everything was protected in paper and plastic with minimal foam, and there were a few scratches on the stock. First thing I did was put on a 3-9/40 Simmons scope. The rings and bases went on nicely and I went on to sight it in. It took me 4 shots to dial it in. After that I put 3 shots in the bullseye. It has great power and accuracy. The trigger is very nice and light. GREAT AIR GUN!
Pros:
Weaver rail, rings, accuracy, power, trigger, safety
Cons:
Hard to load at first then it gets easier as you shoot, and it's very heavy

Stilig, slank og passe tung. Masse kraft og fornuftig pris p renovert. Jeg vil anbefale denne til en venn.
Pros:
Absolutt det meste, har ingen negative ting sette fingeren p. Eneste var at den var litt for lang til passe i vpenfuteralet, men det gjr ingen negativ ting, fordi Big Cat passet bra.
Cons:
Ingen ting utsette p denne

Great Gun-Bad Scope
February 15, 2013
This rifle is really nice, powerful,a bit heavy, solid, and great shooter. I have nothing bad to say about it. The scope and sights on the other hand need a lot of work. I shot it first with the iron sights and could not adjust it down far enough at 25' to center my shots. The adjustment screw for elevation ran out of adjustment. I put the scope on it and was planning on using it anyway. After about five shots, the scope fell off the rifle! My attempts to remount it failed, and I found one of the screws was stripped, not by me, but from the factory. I finally said "the Heck with it" and went and bought another set of rings and mounted them directly to the gun. We'll see how that works out with the recoil of this gun. My advice to anyone getting this gun would be to plan on getting another mounting system. The scope itself isn't that bad for a cheap scope and it was adjusting in well until it falls off the gun. Time will tell if it can hold up to the battering of this magnum. Other points it takes some effort to cock this gun, it's not for children or the weak. It's heavy and you can't hold it up for a long time. It's also long, a tad over four feet! Let me conclude by saying that I really like the gun despite the sighting problems it has. It's a power house and fun to shoot. My gun looked like a new one when it arrived and it's performed flawlessly. If you have problems with it don't expect help. I called and was told to call the factory, they gave me the number. I called there and was told it had no warranty, but if I wanted they would send an adjustment screw for the iron sights. Although it would be the same, no help there. If I sent it back, they would fix it. That wasn't feasible, I just did it myself. Good gun, bad sights.
Pros:
Powerful Big gun feel Fun to shoot Accurate-from limited experience so far
Cons:
Sights are terrible Man-up to cock it ! A tad heavy

Excellent value
December 26, 2012
This is an excellent Chinese rifle. Yes, it's Ruger, but made in China. However, you cannot really tell the difference after you do some much needed maintenance to this gun when you get it. The very first thing before you put any pellets through it is to run a bore snake or brush down the barrel as there is almost always junk from the manufacturer in there. Make sure you use loctite on the 2 stock screws and the screw underneath by the trigger guard as they will rattle loose when you shoot. This gun is tons of fun to shoot and it has a massive recoil. You'll be wanting to replace the scope that comes with it. While it may be a "OK" scope, on this gun it just does not hold a good zero point, between shooting sessions it would move an enormous amount, sometimes up to an inch. It just did not stay put. I recommend putting on a nicer Leapers or a good 3-9x40 mil dot scope. These guns are strong, it will go supersonic with light pellets and that is NOT what you want. Mine likes H&N Baracuda Power 10.19 grain pellets. I can put out groups of less than .25 inch at 30 yards.
Pros:
Accurate Powerful
Cons:
Heavy No sling options Bad scope bundled

Great Buy! Powerful Gun!
November 19, 2012
These rifles are a great buy. I have looked many of them over and I can't distinguish them from a new one, except for the little R stamp. The scope that comes with it is a bit weak for a spring gun this powerful. Don't mount it until the gun is broken in, even then it might not last very long.
Pros:
Power, sights, picatinny rail, and synthetic stock.
Cons:
Scope takes a beating on a spring gun this powerful.

Amazing Rifle
October 14, 2012
I love this air gun. It is so powerful and by the sound of the "Crack," when you pull the trigger you would never know it's only air. It's also very accurate. I upgraded the scope but other than that, I'd recommend this air gun to anyone who wants to target shoot or rid your yard of annoying squirrels.
Pros:
The power and sound.
Cons:
It's a little heavy but that makes it feel like a real gun.

Fun gun, great price
July 10, 2012
The Ruger Air Magnum .177 is a fast and hard hitting air rifle. It does take some effort to cock but once you get used to it, it's not bad. The first time I shot it, I thought, "Oh my gosh! It sounds like a 22 long rifle." After a few few shots it quieted down and is not that loud. When I shoot it from my deck with the house windows open my wife does not hear it when she is inside unless she is standing next to the window at the deck. Even outdoors 100 feet away the sound is barely noticeable. I like the optic sights and the easy adjustments. The staged trigger on the air rifle I got is good and crisp. I have enjoyed the open sights so much; I have not put the scope on yet. It has power and accuracy. You can't go wrong with this air rifle.
Pros:
It has the heft and feel of a real firearm. Power and accuracy
Cons:
Thus far I have found nothing to dislike.

Big gun, nice price
July 2, 2012
First springer. This is a big gun, it shoots well. As a refurb it came in great shape, could hardly tell it from new. There is an R stamped in the barrel by the breech but that was about the only way I could tell it was a refurb. With a good tune this will be a nice addition. For the price it's a good deal for a magnum.
Pros:
The price and condition it came in.
Cons:
Nothing really

Ait Magnum, I think not
June 20, 2012
I got this from Airgundepot. It shoots around 910fps with Crosman Premier Dome 10.5 and around 1010fps with Premier Hollow point 7.9. My Beeman RS2 shoots about the same without the extra weight and is a lot smoother. I do NOT recommend this airgun. Check your rifle and scope before the delivery man leaves. My rifle leaks water? from the stock.
Pros:
Cheap
Cons:
Everything but the price which in retrospect really wasn't the cheap considering what I got for my money.

Big, Heavy and Loud
May 22, 2012
The Ruger Air Magnum is heavy, has quite a bit of recoil, and is noticeably loud, probably because certain pellets go supersonic. The gun works well, and although I've heard complaints about the scope, I see nothing wrong with it. The gun's weight actually helps dampen the recoil. Cocking is not difficult, but this is certainly an adult air gun. Mine is refurbished, and seems as good as new. I am planning to clean the barrel with felt pellets, and then find a place where i can shoot the thing without alarming the neighbors.
Pros:
High velocity, rugged construction.
Cons:
A bit noisy. Use heavy pellets. But given the price, not much to complain about.

It is still a new toy (for adults not kids). this weapon has a lot of potential for hunting & target shooting. I would not recomend it for children as it is heavy & very powerful. But, the big kids will have a blast.its accurate & powerful. not overly impressewd with the scope, but it will do.

.177 powerhouse
March 5, 2012
I bought this gun to kill woodchucks that have been getting in my garage. My old pellet gun isn't powerful enough to be humane at that job but I don't want to use my rim fire in there either. This gun delivers on power! I tested muzzle velocities on mine with various pellets and was pleasantly surprised. Here are some of my results; Crosman 4.2gr PBA pellets came out at 1507 fps, Gamo TS-10 10.49gr pellets ran at 1029 fps, Beeman 8.53gr pointed pellets shot at 1212 fps (that's 27.83 ft-lbs of energy!). This gun will shoot thru 5/8" particle board with no problem, in fact the TS-10 pellets went thru at 30yds! I haven't shot this gun enough to get tight groups with it, so I can't rate the accuracy fairly. This gun is heavier than I thought it would be, just the gun weighed in at 8.64lbs. Add a scope and other stuff, and you could hit 10lbs.
Pros:
Power Speed good price
Cons:
Heavy

Hot Shot
January 11, 2012
We purchased 6 of these rifles, Christmas presents for my kids and my dad (one for me too). They are surprisingly powerful! The first time anyone shoots it, they are amazed at how much noise and recoil it has. Yes recoil. If you want a whisper quiet, stealth gun... don't buy this. But if you want an air rifle that will shoot through 1/2" plywood and have your neighbors thinking you're shooting a .22lr cartridge in your back yard... this is the gun for you. So far no one has called the cops on me, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were rolling up my driveway one day while we are plinking in the back yard. Over all, it's a great rifle and I recommend it
Pros:
POWER
Cons:

good shooter for the price
January 9, 2012
My refurb cost me only $85 bucks shipping included, so I wasn't expecting much in terms quality. I'm happy to say I got way more than expected, not quite as nice as a 350 magnum but a bit better than the B28. My barrel came bent to hell at the breech block, I jokingly called it my "super drooper" because the muzzle was drooping at nearly 1" from the bore axis, I literally could not see daylight through the barrel. At 10 yards I was shooting at about 1 foot below point of aim, so no amount of shimming was going to fix that. I decided to bend the barrel up at a slight neg droop (I'm running a hi-rise rings because of the 50mm AO) so that at 25 yards I don't have to crank the vertical turret too much. The rifle is pretty accurate, I'm shooting 3/8" groups at 25 yards off a rest, seems more accurate than my NPSS. The included scope is useless (looks to be a rebranded Centerpoint AR22), I put that on my Crosman 66 and put a 5th Gen 3-9x Leapers on the R.A.M. Overall a very good rifle for the price I paid, only wish it came in .22 caliber.
Pros:
lots of power, Weaver rail, Tru-Glo sights, good accuracy
Cons:
heavy cocking, synthetic stock feels a bit hollow, drooping barrel, cheap scope and rings

RUGER AIR MAG
December 7, 2011
AGD posted a review of mine Nov 30th (see below) that I wish they would not have posted. I ordered this rifle re-furbed and posted a couple of reviews that were either lost in space or whatever happened, so as a result I became upset with them but I regret that cause I ordered another re-rurb from them and they are really great people and I want to apologize to them for that one star rating. I should have rated the rifle and handled the other upsetting issue in another format. Anyway, this is the best value in the large powerful spring gun class. It is very powerful and after some break in and pellet experiments, it is very accurate and deadly for a .177 airgun. I give it 5 stars, fun factor 6 stars, and AGD 6 stars after my recent purchase of a Hammerli X2 which arrived in showroom condition just as the Ruger Mag did.
Pros:
Looks, Power, Accuracy, Trigger, Price. For less than $100 bucks, this deal is a no-brainer. It looks brand new as a re-furb. The power will blow your mind especially when you shoot pellets <8 grs as it will exceed compressability. With AA Field pellets @ 10.3 grs it will roll a mature nutria rat. It also likes the RWS Dome @ 8.3 grs and not go SS. For a rifle in this price range, the trigger is adjustable and predictable. Like the trigger after some adjustment. Do not recommend this for kids or the weak at heart. It's heavy and requires a lot of cocking effort. But, it's worth the effort when you pull the trigger. Also, it has one feature that I feel is required on powerful springers, the picatanny rail!!!! Scope don't budge.
Cons:
My future son-in-law won't give it back to me and I only have one!!

I've had this gun for about half a year now and I must say it is an amazing gun if you want to step up from a BB gun. I got it a while back in the winter and it shot perfectly. I got a headshot on a squirrel when firing my first pellet. It is now over 80 degrees in the summer and the gun still works perfectly. I must say though, I've had to use two pellets to take down a rabbit, and now if you hit a squirrel with a body shot it will not kill it instantly. I made a review and a target shooting video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdD5SxQIPMQ

Ruger Air Magnum
April 10, 2011
This rifle is incredible for its power and accuracy at this price tag. The power of this rifle is about the same as the Walther Talon Magnum. However, I like this air rifle more because it operates very much the way it operates in RWS 34, 350 or the Ruger airhawk. Very smooth breaking of the barrel, and the trigger has a very nice feel to it. My only concern for the rifle is that the rifle is quite loud, and I had to shoot extra heavy weight pellets to reduce the speed just to slightly below the speed of sound to avoid the sonic crack. This rifle is great for hunting.

Move over 350....your clone match from China is coming very close to duplicating your quality. Very powerful...shoots Kodiak match 10.2 near 1000 fps. Don't use lighter...will send all SS. Not overly hold sensitive, good groupings, excellent sites. Strong effort to cock that improves as does the report. Good blueing and finish with a truly impressive 2 stage trigger (t05 repro). This is a must own very low cost, hi quality success story with little ownership/coverage. A well built, accurate powerhouse. Strongly recommend.

how well is the refurbishing?
By Staff on December 1, 2011

Answer:
Often times the guns are as good as new. But sometimes there will be scratches to the finish. They are always guaranteed to be in working order.

By Daniel from Baltimore, Maryland on March 11, 2012
What grain pellet do you recommend? Trying to keep noise down
By A Reasonable Person from Metro Boston on March 12, 2012

Answer:
A pellet weight in excess of 10 gr is necessary to reduce the muzzle velocity developed by the Ruger Air Magnum below trans-sonic speeds. The loud report often mentioned by users probably relates to use of more typical 7 to 9 grain pellets, which can develop a muzzle velocity in excess of the speed of sound when used with the RAM. Using the heavier pellets will reduce the sonic signature and should eliminate the instability which occurs when diabolo profile pellets decellerate below the speed of sound on their way to the target. Pellets offered by Airgun Depot which you might want to try include 10.7 gr Beeman Kodiak, 10.7 gr Beeman Kodiak Match, 11.6 gr Beeman Silver Arrow and 10.5 gr Crossman (Domed) for Silhouettes and Field Targets.
By Lee from Radford, VA on March 12, 2012

Answer:
The heaver pellet is quieter. the lighter pellet is faster therefore being much louder. Try 8.44 grain to 10.5 gr. and see if they do what you are looking for.
By roy from Florence, OR on March 12, 2012

Answer:
I would recommend nothing lighter than 10.5 gr. I use 16.1 eun jin and am very happy with the accurracy, energy and sound level. I tried several kinds of pellets. I found the heavier the pellet, the smaller the group and the lower the sound level.
By PRIMO from MAYAGUEZ, PUERTO RICO on March 13, 2012

Answer:
The ruger mag is really noisy if you use alloy pellets and even so with lead pellets that weigh less than 10.5 I have had very good luck ,and quiet powerful performance with crosman premiers 10.5 grains, they fit this gun snuglly and hit like a brick at 30-40 meters.My Ruger mag is from AG depot-refurbished- took me a long time to tame and to get the hang of it. Now after a tuning the gun is performing very well, its a copy of the 350 RWS mag in .177 and those are big words. Copies will always be copies but for $99 this gun is worth the bet.--- p.s. kicks like a mule but you can get it to be very accurate.
By James from Los Angeles on March 19, 2012

Answer:
All pellets heavier than 10.5 grains will leave the barrel at subsonic speeds and produce less sound. My gun likes Beeman Silver Arrow weighs 11.5 grains.

By Kyle from Pottsville,Arkansas on May 22, 2012
I've been hearing this gun is very accurate with it's scope and powerful i usually use Pemier Hollow Points with my guns and was wondering before i get this gun could it take down a crow at 25-50 yards or a dove at 20 yards with the scope it aleady has?

By Preston from Birmingham, AL on January 9, 2012

Answer:
Hey Matt,

This gun is the loudest springer Ive ever shot. Im not sure if you have ever had a spring rifle before but they do generate noise.This gun will sound like a .22LR if you use alloy pellets(like gamo PBA or H&N field target trophy pellets) granted these pellets are how the manufactors achieve their high FPS marks, I would suggest to stay away from them.You will want to shoot at least an 11grain pellet. With this heavier pellet it keeps the pellet under the sound barrier and MUCH quieter. With the heavier pellets it is possible to shoot in urban areas as long as neighbors around you dont mind but if they are outside they will certainly hear the gun. If you don't use the heavier pellets I would not shoot this gun in city limits.

Understand that this gun takes practice to get good with and if you plan to use a lot id upgrade the scope. I don't know if you are new to air rifles or not but right now you can get a refurbished gun for $99 and you can't beat that price for this type of gun!

Good luck
By airgunner from Wisconsin on January 9, 2012

Answer:
"Quietness" is all relative, sure it's more quiet than a rimfire, but much louder then my Remmy NPSS (which is shrouded), so it all depends on the pellets you select. If you use ones that are <10 grains, they tend to go supersonic so you hear a loud crack, so I use Crosman premier heavies 10.5 grains as they tend to be more quiet (they don't go supersonic). Also be aware, that my gun came from the refurbishment dripping with oil, it was dieseling quite a bit and the shots were very loud (sounded like gunshots), but after 200 rounds it quieted down somewhat.
By Michael from Panama City, FL on January 10, 2012

Answer:
This is a loud gun. It almost sounds like a 22 when fired. I'm told that it gets quieter with use and if you fire a heavyier pellet, but mine is still loud.
By Raymond from Metro Boston on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Hello Matt,
Unless your in-town situation involves a very high level of ambiant noise, it would be difficult to dishcharge this rifle without attracting attention. Even then I suggest you check your state laws and town by-laws concerning restrictions on discharge of air rifles before you try discharging any air gun in town.
The Ruger Air Magnum rifle would be a particular challenge to fire discretely in town, as it truly is a high velocity air rifle. Test results I have read suggest a pellet mass of about 12 grains may be needed in order reliably to reduce the muzzle velocity below trans-sonic speeds. Many comment that it has at least the sonic signature of a .22 lr rifle, part of this being attributed by some to mechanical signature as well super-sonic shockwave.
In my view the Ruger Air Magnum is a fine, well made rifle, which Airgun Depot is offering refurbished at an especially attractive price. Even so, I believe it is better optimized for rural shooting and for shooting at ranges where sonic signature is not an issue. I am fortunate to have an indoor 10 meter range immediately available to me. I would not try shooting it outside in my town.

can i put a tactical rail system on this?
By Staff on April 6, 2012

Answer:
you would be unable to put a tactical rail on this gun due to the rounded stock.

By Kyle Nolan from Pottsville,Arkansas on May 30, 2012
I was wondering what kind of grouping would you get out ofthis gun around 20-35 yards?And can this gun take opposum,doves, and crows?
By Staff on May 31, 2012

Answer:
This gun is accurate at 30 yards if sighted in properly.
Also, it can easily kill the 3 animals you listed. The opossum would have to be a vital shot though.

By Jozef from Denmark on January 7, 2012
I know it might be silly question, but is it possible to take off the scope, and practice like that (I want to be able to practice without the some, just using the sight)?
By David from Kent, WA on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Totally. The scope is not on the gun when you get it in the mail. And it's really easy to add or remove as desired.
By DeadEyeBob from Raleigh, NC on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Absolutely! I removed my scope as soon as I received it because my kids & grandkids havn't gotten acclimated to looking through a "tube" to sight their targets, yet. I use the scope & like it & when they do the scope will go back on. Additionally, I'm shooting 3" groups @ 50' without any adjustment; just havn't gotten around to it. p.s. If you're shooting in a sound-sensative location you can reduce the report by using the heaviest pellets available; I'm shooting 11-16 grain in my back yard. A typical 0.45gr wadcutter sounds like a 22cal LR+.
By Dale H from Florida on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Yes you can shoot with the open sights.
The day glow sights come sighted in right out of the box and can easily be adjusted if you like.
By Dale H from Florida on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Yes you can shoot with open sights without the scope.
The gun comes with day glow sights set accurately right out of the box.
By Dick PreFontaine from Rockford, MI on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Yes. The scope comes off and on quickly with two screws in the mounts. The gun comes equiped with high quality adjustable fiber optic sights. I myself prefer to plink with the factory open sites also.

If you take note or mark where the scope was mounted it can be reattached with very little resiteing required.
By Michael from Panama City, FL on January 10, 2012

Answer:
This type scope mount allows easy removal and reinstallation of the scope. Just loosen 2 thumb screws and it comes right off.When you reinstall it you might have to resight it in, but it will be real close. You could also invest in a set of raised scope mounts and use both open sights and the scope.
By roy from Florence, OR on January 10, 2012

Answer:
I have weaver see through scope mounts on mine. you need open sights up close. I have the option of open sights, scope or laser at any given moment. This has always worked for me.
By Kurt from Crosby, TX on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Yes, It is possible to take it off and practice with just the sights, but it could possibly effect the accuracy of the scope when remounted. You might have to re-sight the gun in after putting it back on.
Kurt
By Preston from Pelham, AL on January 10, 2012

Answer:
Jozef,

One thing is for certain, you will definitely want to take the scope off that the Ruger comes with. This gun has A LOT of recoil for a scope and will rip that scope apart pretty quick.

You can shoot it open sight for practice and for fun but I wouldn't recommend it for hunting. I recommend getting a magnum rates scope with a ONE piece mount. A Leapers 3-9x32 with a RWS one piece lock down mount will give you great results.

By Frank from long beach ms on June 21, 2012
How big of game will this gun take down easily? Will it attract attention when I shoot it? (Like the cops?)
By Mitchell from Three Rivers, Michigan on June 27, 2012

Answer:
It can kill a swan at 10-60 yards with a head shot. Also, it may attract attention if you live in town.

By JOSE from gridley ca on June 24, 2012
Is this air rifle easy to align to the scope?
By Mitchell from Three Rivers, Michigan on June 27, 2012

Answer:
No its hard.
By Primo from Mayaguez Puerto Rico on July 12, 2012

Answer:
Depends on your experience with the Ruger mag. It's a very sensitive rifle, and this means you have to hold it the same way repeatedly . The rifle kicks very hard, because it has a lot of power. You should start the scope alignment at 20 yards to get the hang of it. Once you practice enough you'll be abel to hit 2 inch targets at 50 yards say the bottom of a soda can. I have other much more expensive rifles in my collection that are more accurate than the Ruger mag, but for $99 the Ruger is a ton of fun and super powerful, plus the parts are easy to get. I have to add one thing: this is one heavy gun most likely you'll be shooting it from a rest position, otherwise offhand is difficult .

By Steven from Lima, Ohio on May 15, 2012
What makes this rifle a combo?
By Staff on May 21, 2012

Answer:
The fact that the gun comes with a scope is the reason the manufacturer calls it a combo.

Are these refurbished rifles dependable ?
By Dan from Mars Hill, NC on January 7, 2012

Answer:
In my humble opinion, yes... I've had mine awhile now and have had ZERO problems with it.
By david from ironton, OH on January 7, 2012

Answer:
the ruger magnum is a very great gun since ive had mine ive fired about 1500 pellets thru it and it is very accurate so yes id recomend refurbished
By Bill from Evergreen, CO on January 7, 2012

Answer:
Mine works fine and looks essentially new. Additional comments on this gun.... the cocking mechanism has a lot of resistance. It will take a average adult to cock it. That is probably because of the 1400 fps muzzle velocity. It is a heavy gun and looks and feels more like a Ruger high powered rifle than a pellet gun. If you want to use this for a child or teenager - this is not the gun for you. Please feel free to ask other questions. Airgun Depot is great and I think their refurbished deals can't be beat.
By roy from Florence, OR on January 7, 2012

Answer:
I have had mine for only a month, But the dependability is there. I use 16.1 g eun jin pellets to deal with mice and rats. The power is such, that these pellets completely penetrate the largest rats. May be the pellets, but accuracy on mine is dime size 10 shot groups at 30 yards.
By larry from lamar missouri on January 7, 2012

Answer:
so far i have used it very little but it is like new and it shoots very hard . i would buy again. i am pleased so far.
By Michael from Panama City, FL on January 7, 2012

Answer:
Yes. I look at refurbished items as better than new. New things can have flaws not seen by quality inspectors and are then returned. These returned items are repaired, and I believe they then get a more through inspection before they are returned to the retail market.
By gabe from AL Gulf coast on January 8, 2012

Answer:
I have purchased 4 refurb'd rifles in the last 31/2 months and all of them were better than new. No problems whatsoever with any of them performance and looks wise. 3 of them came from AGD, a Ruger Air Mag, Hammerli X2, which is a beautiful rifle with 2 barrels, and a Ruger Airhawk. I am a refurb buyer from now on, great price for rifles in NIB condition!!!!
By Edith from CHULA VISTA, CA on January 9, 2012

Answer:
I have found this rifles very dependable I have purchase two of them for the reazon
By Ray from Metro Boston on January 9, 2012

Answer:
I have not had opportunity to fairly assess reliability. The rifle is well finished, sturdy, and the action breaks easily and moves smoothly. The fiber optic open sights provide an excellent sight picture. These factors suggest to me that the RAM would likely be reliable in service. Unfortunately, it was missing the elevation screw/knob from the rear sight assembly when received, so I have not been able to sight it in.
The reliability I can fairly report on is that of Airgun Depot. As soon as I notified them of the issue, their Customer Service reps were very responsive and helpful. My RAM is on its way back to Airgun Depot under a prepaid FedEx label arranged by Airgun Depot. I look forward to receiving the replacement and to further business with Airgun Depot.

Will this gun kill a squirrel at 20-25 yards and what pellets should I use to do so?
By Edith from CHULA VISTA, CA on February 24, 2012

Answer:
Yes, this gun could easy kill a squirrel 20-25 yards, one of my friends kill a hare about 45 yards with out a problem I was very surprise to see that happen
By Kristopher from Tarentum, PA on February 24, 2012

Answer:
This gun is very powerful. While I haven't done any squirrel hunting with it yet, I was putting holes through an old oil filter at 20 yards. I don't think a squirrel would stand much of a chance as long as you're accurate.

I was using RWS Super Dome pellets. Very well made and consistent.
By roy from Florence, OR on February 24, 2012

Answer:
This gun will definitly kill a squirrel at ranges greater than 25 yards. The power of this full sized rifle is way up there. I shot some groups with 10.5 gr. and got under the sound barrier, but did'nt get the accurracy i wanted. I use Eunjin 16.1 gr. and get dime size 5 shot goups at 20 yards. Oh, almost forgot, killed a 40 lb raccoon last month with this rifle at a range greater than 25 yards.
By john from newport news, VA on February 24, 2012

Answer:
YES this rifle is very powerful, I use 10gr copper coated pellets, at 30yds the pellet will punch through 1inch plywood and still hold shape with nice mushroom, this rifle Is capable of taking game much larger than squirl
By Earl from Wheat Ridge, CO on February 24, 2012

Answer:
Great gun. Kill rabbits & crows at 50 & 75 yards. Through water bottles at 100 yds. I changed the scope & use heavy pellets like the Beeman crow Magnum or RWS Superpoint extra. I'm pleased with it.
By Kayla from Northampton, PA. on February 24, 2012

Answer:
Beyond any doubt yes it would kill a squirrel at 25-30yrds. I have no doubt that if you can shoot you could kill one at 100yrds. It is the most powerful springer made in .177. You must use heavy pellets. Crosman Premiere Ultra Mags 10.5g's gave me superb accuracy at the 75yrds I was testing them with out of the Ruger Air Magnum.
By Kevin from chicago, IL on February 24, 2012

Answer:
Yeah cause its very high powered. You can go with the standard hunting pellets(1200 fps) or for a faster velocity use the pba pellets(1400 fps). What I hate about the gun is sighting the gun with the scope because I still haven't been able to sight it. Get yourself some new optics with this gun, or even a laser. If you have another $100 to blow go get yourself the gamo hp varmint hunter. Both these rifles are made from great quality but the varmint has a scope, light, and I believe a laser all on one mount!
By Kyle from Pacific Northwest on February 25, 2012

Answer:
Absolutely! This air rifle has plenty of power to take large varmint, racoon, opposum, @ 30 - 40 yards, with a heavy grain pellet. I like the Eun Jin 16.1 grain pellet as it keeps the velocity below 1100 fps and has nearly the take down energy of a .22 long rifle. With lighter grain pellets I've hit about 1300 fps, but its much louder. I love this air rifle and would recommend it.

I am buying this gun soon and i am wondering if the scope has some zoom, if the gun has good accuracy, and how loud the gun is.
By Staff on April 16, 2012

Answer:
Hello,
Air magnum rifles tend to be a bit oin the loud side. Since this is refurbished, I am not 100% sure which scope it will come with, but usually they are 3x9-either 32 or 40. They are accurate though.
Most of the refurbished look good as new too.

By will from tampa,fl on July 1, 2012
I'm looking for my 1st air rifle. I want something that will bring down squirrels and rabbit without a problem. I am choosing between this and the remington vantage 1200. Can you help me?
By Prim from Puerto Rico on July 3, 2012

Answer:
The Ruger Mag will do the job, but get ready to practice the artillery hold. This gun is very sensitive, plus it's very heavy and long. As for power it will run circles around the Remington. Use 10.5 grain pellets, I prefer the crosman premiers round nose, very accurate,and they hit like a brick. You can expect 900 fps plus with the 10.5 and 19 to 20 foot pound of energy,awesome power,definitely not a TOY... Be very careful how you shoot it's got power and range. The gun can be upgraded with a good tune up. As for use with open sights don't waste your time. As for the scope, it will probably not last long. The Ruger Mag is a scope demolisher,you'll have to get another one,I recommend Leapers 4x32.
