Excellent
February 1, 2014
I actually bought this rifle for my wife as a beginner gun. She is very weary of any firearm and it took some talking just to get the gun for her. Now that she has tried this gun she really likes it. I think i have created a monster, in a good way, LOL The ease in which this rifle shoots and loads sold me and her but it was the accuracy that caught my attention. I have never had a gun easier to sight in with a scope. Using dome head pellets seem to suit this gun perfectly and will be the ammo my Wife will use in it from no on. I would like to add that the breakdown of this gun is very simple making it easy to service and keep clean. I am an Army Vet. and anyone who is, knows that a clean gun is a trustworthy gun. I can field strip this gun in less than five minutes. This is a great rifle for the price and I would recommend it to anyone who hunts small game or as I use it to run the Bears from the yard. Ordering was easy and delivery could not have been more efficient. I recommend both Rifle and Company for your Air Rifle desires.
Pros:
Very accurate,easy to use. Great buy!

better gun then this
September 24, 2013
I bough this gun for small game such as squirrels, rabbit, and dove. The thing I don't like about this gun is the scope would not sight in, every time you brake the barrel it messed up the scope, its just all over the place . All though I did have some luck with iron sights .I got 5 squirrels with iron sights.
Pros:
iron sights are good
Cons:
scope is not good

Excellent rifle but not without it's flaws.
August 14, 2013
First and foremost, this rifle is NOT for a child! It is sized for adults and should only be used by persons 16 or older!!! I purchased mine from a local farm supply store. The hardwood stock and mechanism have an excellent feel. The weight of the rifle is remarkable and, with a solid stance and firm grip, it tends to stay where you point it. The scope is of decent quality and appears to be made for small caliber rifles. The scope -rings- on the other hand need some fiddling to get them set solid. Be forewarned, this rifle shoots _HARD_ and I do mean hard! In fact, it shoots hard enough to make the scope slide around in the rings which tanks your sighting job every time you shoot. The same holds true for the mounting screws which keep the rifle mechanism in the stock. I highly recommend tightening the entire gun before, during and after breaking it in. During sight-in, take a moment to tighten the stock mounting screws and the scope rings every third shot or so. Believe me, I would have used less ammo to sight mine in if I had! Some may say this rifle is hard to cock and I would agree ONLY if this were a lower power rifle. This is a powerhouse of a gun and it needs strength to ready it to fire. To recap: 1) Tighten everything up before you sight it in, 2) Tighten scope rings on rifle and scope every few shots during break-in and sighting-in to keep it accurate, 3) Tighten rifle mechanism to stock mounts after shooting during break-in period or first 250 rounds. Overall, I'm happy with the rifle's performance, fit and feel and has enough power to hunt game such as squirrel, rabbit, and raccoon
Pros:
Combo package with scope Price Hardwood stock Shoots HARD! (See review) Sights can be removed.
Cons:
Shoots HARD! (See review) Could have better sights (Unnecessary with scope)

Ruger Air Hawk Combo
August 8, 2013
Superb firearm. I recommend the rws superdome pellet for this gun. The most accurate air rifle I ever owned for the money. Sighted scope for 80 yards and hit a 3 inch diameter circle consistantly. Sighted it in at 50 yards and stacked up pellets with it. The pellet makes the difference. Well worth the money. Great gun. Iron sights accurate also. A+ from me.
Pros:
Right price. Accurate. Well built.
Cons:
Scope a little blurry but for an air rifle and the price of the combo it does the job perfectly.

Well I've had my new Ruger Air Hawk for a few days now and it's a good gun! I've read all the reviews on it and I can't find any flaws. Yes, the scope is a cheapie, but it does work pretty good when you have it sighted in. The first couple of shots sounded like a .22 Ruger instead of a pellet gun, but after the oil clears out of the barrel she'll get quiet. This is my first pellet gun of this generation and technology. It sure has come a long way since the old pump-up air rifles I used to have. I purchased this rifle to get rid of the squirrels in my back yard and she does it well! I've got it sighted in at 60 yards and can hit a pack of cigarettes all day long at that range, so squirrels don't have a chance. I still can't find anything bad to say about this gun. The scope stays on, all the bolts stay tight. What else could you ask for?
Pros:
Good long range punch. Well built. Feels like a good deer rifle. Perfect recoil. Easy to cock.
Cons:
None what so ever!!!

I was not happy with the performance of my Air Hawk so I returned it and tried a second one. I wound up taking the second one back after about 150 shots. The gun is too heavy and not especially accurate. Also, the scope mounts are not very secure. I bought a Crosman Fury and I am very happy with it. It is lighter, more accurate and the scope and mounts are much better. I commented when I returned the second air hawk "not very accurate but sure is pretty". The clerk's response was "pretty don't make the bullet go straight". nuff said.

Big loud and packs a punch!
April 2, 2013
I bought this gun at a Walmart a while back and was happy with it for a time. Really solid gun, heavy, and tremendous recoil. It was really accurate with open sights after about 50-100 shots. Your first couple shots are going to crack like a .22 and recoil like the fist of god into your shoulder. This definitely isn't a child's gun, this is meant to hit hard, and boy does it. I punched straight through quarter inch wood and half inch with Red Fire ammo. That's not necessarily a good thing when your hunting birds or small game though. Use heavier pellets. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to enjoy it that long. I sold it and upgraded to a Hatsan, but this gun was a lot of fun.
Pros:
Beautiful stock Nice and heavy like a real gun Open sights are great! Incredible power
Cons:
DAT RECOIL Scope wont stay on, so break it in and upgrade your mountings. NOT FOR A CHILD!! This thing kicks like nobody's business Cocking effort Light rounds will go supersonic

Not great
March 4, 2013
I shot about 50 shots in about a week and the next week end. I went over to my friends to do some target practice, and shot about 10 myself. I let him try and he shot like 3 and it jams. I couldn't break it down. I've had it for 2 weeks and it's jammed and my dad knows guns but he didn't under stand an air gun. I did some research and I'm good with my hands and I tried to fix it myself and I found that even when it's all taken apart I still couldn't break it. Before it was broken, I loved it and it was so easy to sight in and the accuracy was amazing. Now it's still in pieces so someday I might figure it out. I am sure disappointed!
Pros:
Good accuracy
Cons:
Broke after about 63 shots through it and now it's junk.

December 26, 2012
This air gun is awesome. I shot a robin from 50 yards and squirrels from 40 yards. The scope isn't that good. When you get the gun, I would just get ride of the scope and get another one. Another problem is the weight. It's really heavy for an air gun. Overall, it's a good gun for pest, small game, and even sometimes animals such as raccoons. A great gun overall.
Pros:
I like the range and power.
Cons:
The weight.

Donald - Ruger - air Hawk Combo (4X32 Scope)
November 11, 2012
I have had this rifle about a week or two. I have fired about 100 pellets through it (well that is my grandson and I). I find it to be very accurate. The scope had to be sighted in and took many pellets to do so. I got it close then my son tried it and adjusted it some more. I didn't try the Iron sights at all. Since I only have a small yard, I have only fired it at short distances. I have been shooting airguns for a long time. I started squirrel hunting with my dad when I was 10 years old. I still have an old Crosman airgun .22 cal. that was used when I got it. The rear sight was broke off when I got it. I used the rear sight leveling screw as a rear sight. I could knock a squirrel out out of a tree with it. This Crosman model 101 is the second model Crosman came out with. The date on it is Oct. 28, 1923 which was the patent date. I fired expert with the M - 1 rifle, M-14 rifle, M - 16 rifle, M - 60 machine gun, 50 Cal. machine gun, and the 38 Cal. pistol. My friends and myself target practiced by the creek shooting horseflies.
Pros:
I like the looks of the rifle and scope. The price was the only reason I could consider this purchase. Ruger is a good name brand.
Cons:
Not really a dislike, but I find the weight of the rifle a little heavy. Being a 68 year old with two back surgeries makes holding this rifle in the standing stance a little hard to do.

fairly good gun
February 17, 2012
It is a good quality gun. I have run it through my field target range and found it is good to around 45 to 50 yards. It also seems to have enough takedown power for squirrels at this range but I would advise to use a scope past 25 yards for a target the size of a fat squirrel. Tere is some heavy recoil so loctite the scope rings or your scope will be shifting and your target escaping. Also keep your muzzle velocity at 1000 fps or below. Going supersonic will tear your accuracy down and you might as well be shooting a daisy model 25 bb gun for all you will be hitting. Also hold the gun lightly in what is called the artillary hold. It needs to be able to jump and recoil to be accurate. I have 6 years of military experience and beyond that have won my local field target club championship 6 straight years and have hand built a custom air gun specifically designed to find the absolute limit of airgun ranges. So I am well qualified to give advice.
Pros:
Good power. Accurate in the right hands.
Cons:
If you are a beginning airgunner stay away from these high power airguns at first. You need experience air gunning with lower powered guns first. Buy a gun like this for your first gun you will be disappointed. Take it from someone that grew up airgunning.

very nice rifle
February 11, 2012
i bought this rifle yesterday.i have read all the reviews on this site and agree with them all.the problems with the mounts i did incure.i had shot it about 2 dozen times and notice my group was not consistant.id hit a few times in the 10 ring then have one "flier"i was about to put it up for the evening when i giggled the scope the front mount was loose.i then reached in the tool box for the blue loctite.i have used this for every scope mounting ive done in the past but didnt think i would need it for an air rifle i now know different.the mounts are alluminum weaver style mounts and seem solid thought i prefer bolt on mounts but have never seen them on air guns.i did make the mistake of getting the cheap variety pack of pellets.i will now go and get some premium ones the cheaper ones have alot of defects in the base skirts.the first shot did sound like a 22 LR and i was very surprised even after reading that it would do this.but it has quited down a few shots.ive only been able to zero at about 30 yards so ive got some more fie tuning to do but it seems to be a nice rifle.one small complaint is mine seems very hard to open at the breach the retaining ball is very strong.
Pros:
nice heavy well built gun.feels like a centerfire.
Cons:
hard to open breach.base rings need to be seated well and checked often. if not loctited with "blue"type

This gun is a great pellet rifle. Good accuracy and not a bad price, hey it is a Ruger. I have had this gun for 2 years now, no problem what so ever. The optics could be better, but hey, at least it comes with a scope. After purchasing this gun, I suggest to go and get a 3-9x40 scope and some medium rings. This thing will shoot accurate at 50 yards.

Needs better optics.

Ruger Air Hawk Combo
December 27, 2010
The order was processed and delivered as advertised! I bought the Ruger as a "Trainer" for my 11yr old son and it is a perfect fit for training as well as having a great time plinking or squirrel hunting. I have never seen, much less held, such a finely crafted Air Rifle. This product has all the features and feel of a rimfire rifle. There is even a bit of felt recoil which is great for training. Don't think this is a toy..this is a high end,very capable Air Rifle. Be sure to tighten the scope mounts very well and you should not experience any problems with the mounts.The scope is great quality for an Air Rifle. The one CON I have for the rifle is the plastic "iron" sights. I don't like plastic on rifles. The actual functionality of the "iron" sights are very good..I just don't like plastic on rifles. Overall I cannot beleive the quality for the money trade off...buy it you'll love it! BTW...the first few shots are VERY loud, much like a 22LR..but then it quiets down to a whisper which works great for practice shooting in a neighborhood.

Ruger Air Hawk

Bought the Rugar Air Hawk for my son to teach him gun safety as well as basic marksmanship techniques. I am very pleased with the overal quality of the Ruger. The cocking mechanism is a bit hard for an 11 yr old (mfg recommends minimum age of 16yrs) so I get to enjoy plinking and squirrel hunting with my son for a few more years! the gun is very quite after the first couple shots. we live in a neighborhood with fenced lots, less than half acre in size, and we should be able to practice with no nuisance problems to the neigbors. This gun is just like a real rifle in quality and feel. Wish we had airguns like these when I was growing up!

I was shopping for My son. I was not going to get anything, but this Ruger caught my eye. I then researched, but stuck with the Air Hawk Combo. Buy This Gun! The price is way more than fair, it is a steal. I did very little adjusting and got one inch groups at 30 feet right away. I have not even put the scope on yet. It seems like a nice scope, should help long range for sure. Again, buy it. This is a great deal and a beautiful gun.

November 22, 2010
I reach for this gun more than any of my other guns when I have a pest problem to deal with. It out performs even my more exotic ones. It's a relatively heavy beast but a gamo gun buddy works great with this gun. I like Gamo raptors in this gun. They tend to break the sound barrier in this gun making a satisfying "crack". It might alert a groundhog he was just shot at but the pellet hit and killed him before he heard it. The gun is also quite sturdy and puts up with my worst field conditions, but needs care after being in a wet environment so it doesn't rust. If you hunt, you need this gun.

Ruger AirHawk Combo Review
September 2, 2010
This air rifle has a wood stock that is well balanced. It is easy to load ammunition, it comes with fiber optic sights which work well, when not using the scope that comes with this package. I found it hard to keep the scope on the gun with the scope rings provided by ruger. after i changed to a better set of rings the scope works great. Both the fibre optic sights and the scope are very easy to adjust, and this rifle is exceptional accurate. I did some studying in reference to this air rifle and one of the German made Diana air rifles, pretty much made the same as the German made Diana. So for what it's worth, the gun has execellent parts that have proven themselves over the years in the Diana ?model? (google it) and i am very satified with my Ruger Air Rifle.

Ruger Air Hawk Combo
July 11, 2010
First of all I received the shipment exactly when I was told it would arrive. Second this is not a toy! It is the most powerful accurate rifle I ever handled. Within five shots I had it zeroed in at 100yards with the scope and again with the open sites. The reason we ordered this is an over abundunce of squirels. They were trippimg the transformers in our rural neighborhood on a monthly basis. With the Ruger I could eliminate five squirels with five shots without worrying about the neighbors a half mile down the road. I don't like to kill things anymore as I have matured, but while feeding the birds the squirels have over taken the area. The weight of this makes it feel as though it were a high powered rifle. If you want a serious tool buy this weapon and the Crossman Destroyer pellets are the ultimate projectiles. Do not buy this for your 10 year old to play with.

Great gun
May 30, 2010
Like all things I really did my homework before deciding to buy this particular air gun. I actually had my sights on a Sheridan but the knowledge and service of Airgun Depot was educational and suggested this airgun. I was fortunate that I spoke with an associate that actually shot this as a test. I specifically bought this rifle for squirrel control with ranges of 20-35yds. I love challenges I chose open sights (for now). It sighted in at 20yds with 20 shots. I then tried 30yds and left the sights ALONE. Again, accurate. **TIP** Make sure, after every 10 shots (when sighting in) all the screws are tightened. I lost about an hour time when I discovered my sights were loose! I interchange Crosman Premier HP and Crosman Destroyer XT with no prob! I actually think it prefers the Destroyer pellets. Its true, this rifle is accurate and consistent. **TIP** Get to know/learn your gun. Don't get frustrated after a few shots and no avail. It took me 3hrs overall to feel comfortable and gain confidence in sighting in this rifle. PRACTICE builds confidence, which builds proficiency, which gives accuracy. Also, break open is much more convenient than pumping a rifle 8 times! The rifle is somewhat heavy but has great feel/balance. CONS: I agree, the sights and safety on this rifle are made of plastic and give that "cheap" image. HOWEVER, if you are like me and take care of your weapons I don't see why this would be a problem. I have yet to try the scope but I'm very pleased with this purchase. As I said earlier, I did my homework and this rifle truly is a good product with a great value. This store was the cheapest I found it once I decided on the Ruger. You can't beat the customer service and knowledge I experienced, thanks! Lastly, the first 10-20 shots are LOUD! As in .22LR loud. Forewarn your neighbors if you have any!

This is the first pellet gun I've ever bought. I can't believe how powerful and accurate it is. It took about 20-30 shots to adjust the scope, and about 15 to adjust the mounted sight. But after that it shot on point. The first shot I took after taking it out of the box, I hit a street light dead on about 30 yards away using the mounted sight. I would recommend this to anyone. All my buddies want on now. And for the price you can't beat it. I notice people commenting about the gun's heavy weight and how hard it is to cock, but I love the fact it makes it feel real and powerful.

My second A.G. Review on Airgun Depot
July 23, 2009
I'd like to begin saying this is my second review, my first was on the RWS m48 22cal /w shooters pack.Now back to the Ruger! I got the gun on 7-15-09, opened the box and the gun looked very good it had a few dings in the stock no biggie so I proceeded to tear the gun down for a good cleaning and lube job. I put ten strokes thru the bbl each way to get all the grime from milling and bluing out of the bore. lubed it up put it all back together mounted the scope that came w/gun on it and began shooting it to see what it will do. I started off with Savage wadcutters, and they didn't shoot to bad at 10 yds but I didn't buy the gun to shoot 10yds w/ wadcutters I bought it to hunt with so on with the next pellet,next up was the crossman premier hp's the gun wouldn't shoot them at all ok so on to the next pellet, beeman silver aces no the gun didn't like them at all either mmm strange so on to the next pellet crossman copperhead pointed pellets, and they started to shoot but still very inconsistant some lose some tight fitting the grouping not good enough for me.So just for kix I shoot some daisy pointed pellets and as usual their not good in anything so I proceeded to shoot the rifle to just break Itried RWS super point extras it in and after 800rnds the cocking was still so stiff I was still having to slap the bbl to get to open I decided to reclean the bore this time I put 20 strokes w/breakfree and regreased the ball detent and began shooting again,started off with the RWS super points still no luck wont group so I went back to the cphp's and they started to group very tightly at 10yds so now I have fired around 900rnds thru the gun to get it to shoot like this, now I'm shooting a quarter inch bull eye at 30yds and hiting it at 3 out of 6 times standing up proping the gun on a ladder for a rest. You cannot beat this gun for the money you might have to work with it alittle to getit to shoot but well worth it thanks Airgun Depot.

this gun is a bad dude ! you cant go wrong for the price. i took mine out to the hills,A/V-so cal. plenty of small game. power & accuracy are there ! as for the scope had to replace it for one with more power 3x9x32. open sights have something to be dsired,however they will do the job. its a good gun ! ! F,T,P,....

this air gun is awesome! i dropped a dove off a power line at 45 yards! this gun has lots of power and shoots half inch groups with crossman hollow points and gamo match pellets. the scope is huge and lets you see way down there.

Great Gun!!!
December 29, 2008
I got this gun from sports authority not too long ago and its functioning well like any airgun should. I do have to say that the hardwood stock is beautiful especially after i put some wood stock finish onto it. The scope that comes with it is OK but for the price I was lucky it even came with one. Overall this gun is definitely a great deal and is something you should consider buying if your starting or want a good deal. Shoots hard and consistently and is a great gun!

Best Airgun Ever Made!
December 24, 2008
I purcased this airgun at my local Academy Sports and Outdoors on December 23. I had read the reviews and thought it would be a good buy. I'm already familiar with the Ruger name because they made my coyote rifle, so I trusted the brand. Zeroing took about an hour or so, but boy was it worth it! This airgun is the most consistent one I've ever shot! I field tested it today on some crow. I dropped one in one shot at over 30 yards! I would recommend this gun to anyone who loves the joy of shooting and the thrill of the hunt!

A very accurate airgun.Once I got the scope dialed in I was able to hit 1 inch targets at 75 yrds using sandbags for better support.The finsh is nice Ruger quality.The only things that I didnt like was the screws tended to strip their threads duriing normal maintainence,and I wish that Ruger would have used the sights from their 10/22 model rifle instead of the plastic (fiber optic) sights that are rather fragile.

This gun is perfect. Accuracy, power, and durability are the best words to describe this ruger. The scope works great once calibrated. I find Gamo pellets to work well with this gun.

First Pellet Gun --- NICE!
November 30, -0001
This was my first pellet gun. Great gun for the price. I've seen this gun in several sporting goods shops where it's sold for $20 to $30 more than AirGunDepot. The construction is very solid and shoots like a charm right out of the box with very little ajdustments to the sighting. The only thing that concerned me was the break barrel -- it can stick when cocking it, at least that's what I'm encountering. Also, the safety is not in the most logical place. For me, I like the safety near the trigger guard. Other than that, it's a great gun to plink around with.

would you suggest this to a teenager? we live in pa where air rifle rules are pretty strict.
By Thomas from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA on December 7, 2011

Answer:
Hi,
We live in a strict neighborhood as well. I purchased my Ruger primarily for using it with my 14 year old and 11 year old. They both can handle the rifle, but we go to a range to shoot it together. So, to answer your question: no I wouldn't purchase the rifle for them alone to use whenever they wanted - recipe for disaster. Buy it for yourself to share with your kids under your supervision at a range. It's a nice rifle.
By john from michigan on February 17, 2012

Answer:
I don't think a teenager would benefit from a powerful airgun like this. Airgunning is something you need to work at and build up into to get accuracy out of. I would suggest a lower powered airgun first like a ruger explorer or a gamo recon. Get used to the recoil in these first. Shoot a few thousand rounds..accurately first, then start thinking power. I shot arouns 150,000 rounds from a crosman 760 over at least 9 years before I wnt to breakbarrels. Now, 33 years later I have come full circle back to recoilless pcp guns. It took that long to be able to take a 1 inch target at 100 yards and a ballistic computer, as well as a hand tuned $4000 airgun system.
My shooting pedigree is impressive and given with hopes you will listen and get the most of the sport.

Follow my path oh padawan learner and you too shall be able to use the farce!

Where are these made?

By armando from canada on August 13, 2012
how do you operate a break barrel air gun? like putting th pellets and cocking the gun/ar
By Staff on August 14, 2012

Answer:
Hello Armando,
The easiest way to operate a break barrel is to first sit down and place the gun across your lap. Hit the barrel near the front sight with the palm of your hand and it should open up. You can then proceed to load pellets into your air rifle. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,
The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

I'm looking to get a different scope for this gun but what is the mount style?
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on January 31, 2012

Answer:
The mount is an 11mm dovetail.
By john from michigan on February 17, 2012

Answer:
It takes a 11mm dovetail rings. The scope should be rated for air guns because the reverse recoil will destroy expensive firearms scopes.
