Great power doesn't always come with a great price. This time it does! The Ruger Air Magnum delivers pounding power at 1400 fps with alloy pellets (1200 fps with lead) at a price that most magnum spring-piston air rifles can't touch. Mount the included 4x32 scope or use the fiber optic sights to home in on your target. The all-weather stock is ambidextrous, with textured forearm and pistol grip. Ruger has a great reputation in firearms. Now, they have a great rep in airguns.

The spring piston break-barrel rifle is durable with its built in all weather composite stock. The 1200 FPS (feet per second) that is attained is high for this class of spring piston break-barrel rifle. The AirMagnum features a blued barrel and receiver and a rifled all steel barrel. The adjustable fiber optic rear sight allows for easy sighting adjustments and the fixed fiber optic front sight allows for quick focusing on the intended target. An automatic safety, rubber recoil pad for comfort, and adjustable trigger are all features of this quality gun.

Good Gun! Powerful and Accurate!
May 25, 2014
I bought this rifle about a year ago and to this day it still shoots like a champ. I can hit cans from from 30 yards away without the scope. However, the scope that comes along with the rifle is trash. After about 5 shot while trying to zero the rifle the wind-age turret broke and I could no longer sight the rifle. Also a couple of the screws on my rifle would come loose from the tremendous recoil that comes along with this gun resulting in the stock and receiver coming loose. Overall the performance of this air rifle is outstanding!

Mine is a piece of JUNK
May 14, 2014
I bought this gun because of the brand name of Ruger. But to my disappointment it is made by Umarex USA under the Ruger logo. Powerful? Yes! Like other reviews the scope shouldn't even be called a scope. I tried 3 different pellet weights and after using up all 3 tins of pellets still could not get it to sight in to a 4 inch plate at 25 yards. A few times the gun sounded like it would shoot nice and clean then BANG everything would go haywire all over the 4X8 sheet of plywood again. Between 4 shot groups everything was checked for tightness. Same results with or without the scope. I have tried numerous times through phone/fax/e-mail to contact the company to no avail. Had to result in contacting Ruger headquarters informing them of the way Umarex USA treats its' customers and I have never had that problem dealing with other Ruger firearms. I did not purchase it from Airgun Depot but my next one will as they have been helpful in trying to find a pellet weight that will work. Thanks Airgun Depot: Carl
Umarex USA customer support and everything else about the gun, Very hard to cock even after a couple hundred pellet. Scope.

This rifle scared me. I took my first shot in my back yard and was shock how loud this rifle is! I immediately ran into my house, fearing my neighbors would call the cops. It wasn't hard at all to cock this rifle....I find it pretty easy to do and effortless.
Don't know yet....haven't zero in the rifle.

i hope this helps

good gun
March 6, 2014
I have had this gun for about a year now and it is outstanding!!! I found this gun to be very accurate (once sighted in to your desired range) the scope was great but personally i like using my front and rear sight. I also noticed the loudness, this gun is loud! the first shots I ever fired with this gun were so loud my neighbors thought it was shooting a 22. (I would not recommend this gun to any one who thinks the neighbors might complain) and another thing is the gun is heavy! I would recommend shooting at a rested position until you get used to it. one last thing is being used to the Gamo big cat I found the draw back to be a little troublesome at first, but after getting used to it I well I got used to it. overall a good gun for any purpose. oh and don't get me wrong the Gamo big cat is still a very good gun but if your looking for more power air magnum is the way to go:)
very accurate and powerful sights work amazing
a little on the heavy side and at first the draw back was a little shocking (I was used to the Gamo big cat)

Drill'in Bulls Eyes in .177...
January 20, 2014
I bought the Ruger Air Mag just for the magnum power. I use heavier lead pellets, which I recommend as it makes a big difference quieting the shot report. The heavier pellets bring the velocity down below the sound barrier which help accuracy and noise reduction. Plus a heavier pellet hits harder and penetrates deeper. As for the alloy pellets I feel they're for bragging rights about velocity, but they don't penetrate anywhere near as good. The rifle when brand new held accuracy about 1 inch groups at 45 feet. But as it broke in, after about 100 to 150 shots or so, it quieted down and the groups tightened up nicely to about 1/2 an inch and even less. This rifle loves the heavier pellets. I shoot the Crow Magnums & Baracuda Hunter from H&N. These type pellets Hit Very Hard with a loud THWAP and the Crow Mags really mushroom out nicely driven at magnum velocities... (See Photos for both Crow Mag & Baracuda Hunter rounds) This Ruger Air Mag rifle is a killer, I can't wait to take it out for some longer distance shots to check bullet drop at different ranges... It's cool to set up different small targets and drill each one with a single shot. A warning to all though,, best have a good back stop as the heavier pellets with the magnum velocity penetrate rather well... Also with the Picatinny/Weaver scope mount it completely solves the slippage problem common on many high powered air rifles with just a dove tail. On the Ruger Air Mag there are four notches on the top of the receiver that the screws on the picatinny rail go through preventing movement. I would however suggest when getting this rifle that you degrease all screws and apply blue lock tight as the recoil on this bad boy is strong & you'll build some muscle cocking it. It does get easier as it breaks in. Once you figure out the technique it makes it easier. Once you break the barrel I use the weight of the gun to help cock it. But if you want Serious Raw Power it has to come from somewhere... And the Ruger Air Mag has Plenty of Power... One last thing, invest in a good scope that's shockproof. I can not comment on the scope in the combo package as I mounted my own scope. I like high magnification on my scope when shooting because I believe in shot placement big time... You shoot an animal in the rear and its going to run off crippled and suffer... You shoot it in the heart or head and it's dead... No More Said...
This rifle is Smoken Hot ! ! ! It's Very Accurate & Hard Hitting, Especially with the Crow Magnums & Baracuda Hunter Pellets from H&N I've been using....
Long and heavy rifle,, but it help tame recoil...

Good for the price, but handle with care.
December 26, 2013
This gun performed well in the short time I owned it. Main problems I have with it are the lack of protection on the sights and the near worthless scope. the scope wasn't much of a problem, as you can buy a cheap 20-30 dollar rifle scope and be fine, and as long as you treat this gun nicely, the sights won't be a problem either. The biggest danger in buying this gun for me was accidentally dry firing. My buddy (kinda stupidly) fired the gun without any pellets and that one shot was all it took to permanently damage my rifle to the point where I cannot cock it.
Decent accuracy, fair price, easy to adjust sights.
hard to cock (~40lbs), bad scope, vulnerable sights, easy to break.

December 5, 2013
I have had this gun for about a year now and it works well and is a very nice pellet gun but i do recommend you buy a better PELLET GUN SCOPE it has to be a pellet gun scope and make sure you get good pellets the cheap ones suck in hing powered pellet guns here are the ones i use: RWS super dome .177.
very well built, kills stuff easily.
the scope is bad buy who cares its a free be :)

Ruger air magnum
November 18, 2013
This gun is a very hard-hitting pellet gun that shoots nice and it is accurate but, the 4 x 32 that comes with it is a piece of junk save yourself a lot of time and headache and get rid of the scope . Either use the very nice fiber optic site or buy a new 3-9 x 40 mm scope and you can put dimes size groups up to 30 yards. I tried the RWS hyper velocity pellets and they did not shoot very well in my gun, they were not tight in the chamber like the lead is. I shot several dime size groups at twenty yards consistently with Gamo tomahawks hunting pellets and two squirrels 1) @ 15 yards and 1) @ 20 yards. They didn't go anywhere. It is very loud though, sounds just like a .22 long rifle. Approximately 112 db I would definitely recommend this gun to anyone interested in hunting any small game animal.
Very accurate Hard hitting with lead pellets Shoots through 1" pine boards at 20 yards.
Very heavy with scope. Sounds like a .22 so don't use this in your back yard unles your neighbors are ok with it.

At 170.00 dollars you can't beat the price for the accuracy and power. You get in the magnum. Very lound though, using pellets under 8 gr. Even shoots my 16.3 gr. Pellets with ease
Lots of power great looking rifle
Heavy, and very loud about the sound of a 22.

Very Impressed With Quality & Performance
May 9, 2013
Let me start by saying that I spent way too much time researching air-rifles and came to the conclusion that if you are not trying to qualify for the Olympics, or rely on your shooting ability to support your family, you do not need to spend more than $170 for any air rifle. I looked at nearly every rifle out there based on price, components, performance, customer feedback, and hands on inspection, and am completely satisfied with this rifle. It is definitely not a toy for children. This rifle is designed for adult use. The workmanship is over the top. The scope is a much better quality than others out there and for the distance you should be shooting, this gun has all the power you need. Now I must stress this gun is loud. It does sound like a .22 long rifle. Perhaps it will wear in overtime because I have only shot it 20 times so far, but just letting you know it may surprise your neighbors. Overall don't get caught up in the hype of feeling you need to spend over $200 for a "pellet" gun. This is all you need. I own several rim and center fire Rugers but can't afford to buy or use up my ammo so I am staying in the sport for a whole lot less. Think about it...for the price of 3 boxes of .22 shells you get a new gun and you can buy 500 pellets for $10 !!! Oh yes...I want to review the RWS pellets too...good stuff. Buy quality, cry once, but you will have a lifetime of satisfaction with this gun.
Workmanship. Price. Reputation. Performance.

I'd pass on this
May 4, 2013
Found that the gun comes with a defective scope that doesn't adjust beyond a certain point - I took a scope off another gun and used that one. Powerful, but not accurate beyond 15-17 yards with a 12 grain pointed pellet; I am going to buy some heavier ones to see if there is any improvement. My friend and I went through about 200 pellets to sight it in.
Very powerful - At 15 yards the pellet consistently went through a 1/2 inch piece of wood.

very strong gun at any price!
March 16, 2013
I only shot it once. Mine is hard to cock. By far the hardest gun I ever cocked. I've had bows that has 80lb draw, so it's not easy. I went out the back door, put a pellet in and shut the barrel. Point the gun at the base of a berm, push safety in, and pulled the trigger. It let off a real loud crack, the whole hood heard it. I was shocked! It kicked hard! Don't know if it kicks hard as my 12 gauge pump, but it's a strong kick. It's not a toy for sure! Just shoot it, you will give it respective. I had BB and pellet guns before. They where toys, this one is not!

March 14, 2013
Wow this rifle is very powerful. Excellent, well built, very large rifle. For an adult, it is a little hard to cock, but probably because of the power of the rifle. I didn't have any problem with the scope, but I changed for the Simmons 3-9x40. This gun is pretty loud. I don't recommend it for back yards. First, clean your rifle. Give it a little tune up before you start shooting. Be very careful that you follow the safety instructions. Enjoy.

Shot great out of box
January 27, 2013
Put the scope on and it only required a couple clicks to be dead on. I turned the focus thing that's located on the eye piece end, and the scope was in perfect clarity. It is heavy but fun to shoot. I say for the money, it's a good buy. As far as cocking, I'm 62 and from what I've read I was going to need help getting it loaded. Ha, it was not a problem at all, using the right technique shown in the instructions. Only negative thing is that it is a large gun. I suppose it needs to be to get its power.

Not your Daddy's BB Gun
December 24, 2012
I ordered 3 of these Ruger Air Magnum rifles at the same time, two for gifts and one for myself. I read all the reviews both pro and con. The most significant cons for me was the weight and the scope but I figured 1) I'm not going to be hiking all day long carrying this rifle so the weight wasn't really a problem. 2) some of the people who were complaining about the scope were replacing it with a scope that cost more than the gun itself. I figured that I wasn't that dedicated of a shooter so the scope that came with the rifle would meet my needs just fine and at least it had the option of using the iron sights that some of the other rifles in this class didn't even offer. So, the rifle is heavy, not too heavy to shoot but I wouldn't want to carry it through the woods all day. I haven't actually weighed my other guns but it's probably heavier than anything I've got except maybe an old bolt action shot gun that I've had since I was 13. Now for the scope: First let me say that there was no problem at all with the two guns that I gave as gifts and everything beyond this paragraph applies to all three guns. However, when I took my gun out of the box I found that one of the eight screws that clamps the scope to the rings was missing. Not really a problem, seven screws will hold it just fine until I find another one. Then, after a break in period, I started trying to sight it in. From 35 yards, I took aim at an 8-1/2 x 11 target and missed the whole target. Ok, let's get a little closer and at least see which way I need to go. I moved to about 20 yards and again missed the target. Moved in to 12 yards and barley caught the right side of the target so I made a half turn adjustment and moved back to 20 yards. This time I again barley caught the right side of the target so I made a quarter turn adjustment and again barley caught the right side of the target. This time I made a half turn adjustment and the placement didn't change. I continued to make half turn adjustments until the adjustment hit the stop and the placement never changed. At this point, I took the scope off and in doing so heard something rattling, so something inside the scope is loose and it won't adjust. The other two scopes are working just fine at this point. After taking the rifles out of the box, we didn't even put the scopes on them until each one had had about 100 pellets shot through it. We got the iron sights close enough to hit a drink can and had a lot of fun plinking cans. Then we got serious about sighting them in. The gun comes out of the box with fiber optic steel sights with large adjustment wheels which makes it easy to adjust both the elevation and windage. We sighted these in at about 20 yards and all three guns shot consistently. Then we backed off to 35 yards and got serious about sighting in the scopes. As described before, 2 of the three guns sighted in with no problems and shot tight groups. When I ordered these guns, I ordered a can of Beeman Kodiak Match Extra Heavy 10.65 grain pellets and a GAMO combo Pellet 4-pack, which were all 7.56 grain. The 10.6 grain pellets shot more consistent groups than the lighter GAMO's, also, if you're trying to be stealthy the 10.65 pellets didn't break the sound barrier and sounded like you might expect a pellet or BB gun to sound. The 7.5 grain pellets however, sounded like a 22 rifle when shot. On the other end of the shot, there was a significant difference as well. The previously mentioned targets were stapled to a 3/8" piece of plywood, the slower heavier 10.6 pellets went right through the plywood at 35 yards, the 7.5 grain pellets didn't penetrate the plywood. For plinking, the 7.5's are fine but if you are wanting accuracy and knock down, go with the heavier 10.6 pellets, they don't sound as impressive but they are definitely the better ammo. This is a good rifle and I would definitely recommend it to others but this is not a toy and you shouldn't buy it for your child's first gun. It's too heavy and too lethal for a child to learn with, but for an older shooter (and I'm way way older) this is an excellent gun to have.

Great Gun
October 27, 2012
I would first HIGHLY recommend that you buy a cleaning kit with this gun. It will be better on your gun. Other than that it is an excellent rifle. I was going to give it a 4 out of 5 because of accuracy, but then again, I still have that flimsy butt stock scope that it came with. I would also recommend to buy another scope. With the current 4x32 one that I have it gives it a 5" spacing from my target after zeroing in. Anyways, the recoil isn't too bad. The noise is pretty dang loud. It's a powerful gun and is pretty heavy. I also WOULDN'T recommend that you don't take this weapon outside and show any of your friends. Treat this gun with respect. Always assume that it is loaded. And never horse around with anyone with this gun.
-Recoil -Take down power -Auto-Safety after being cocked -Rubber padded stock about 2 in. thick at end -Noise (sounds real)
-The stock scope (big effect in accuracy)

September 15, 2012
Was very pleased when I took it out of the box and fired it the first time. I first tried some heavier pellets and they ripped through my pellet catch! I see why they say don't use it for guns rated over 1000 fps. I also fired through a 1x6 plank. I fired a few light weight synthetics and it was louder than my 22lr! The neighbor thought that is what I was shooting in the back yard! The scope is ok but am in the process of definitely replacing it.
Lots of power, realistic sound, very clean for a refurb and good heavy duty construction.
Lower quality scope. VERY HEAVY.

Bought one this afternoon. Loud and hard hitting is definitely right on with this thing. My neighbor lives roughly 1000 feet from my back yard and swore that I was firing a .22 until he actually saw this thing. Not too shabby. Breaking the barrel for cocking and loading will definitely tone the arms too ☺. I'm well satisfied as is but a sling for carrying would be nice.

Got my first chance to try the gun today WOW!!! I mounted the included scope one notch foward of the rear slot. Using Beeman Crow-Magnum Pellets with out any adjustments at 50+ yards 2" grouping. With Crossman and Daisy pointed pellets 12" to 14" grouping so it seems the Beeman Crow-Magnum Pellets are the one for me. Also 16oz water bottles filled 3/4 it penatrates full through and bottle explodes. I havent tryed hunting yet but I think it will do great

February 20, 2012
Wow, fun, loud, accurate and powerful. I bought this gun to have a target shooting rifle to practice with. My goodness, this is a great gun to fire. I thought I was shooting a .22. I just took my first shots in the backyard. I have to call my neighbors to let them know, it's an air rifle and to come on over to shoot this. I don't believe it's that hard to break the barrel to load for men or women. You just have to use some elbow grease and your good to go. I wanted a rifle with some length and weight to the design. At 48" and 8lbs this was a perfect choice. A gun sling maybe a better choice to throw in instead of the scope. This would defiantly take down coyote and fox. The scope is worth nothing. I hope in the future, Ruger will consider changing the scope ASAP. It makes the rifle and Ruger engineering staff look bad. If you work this well to make an air rifle with power and accuracy for this price, you should have a comprable scope to sell along with your product.

Ruger Air Magnum Combo Air Rifle- 1400 FPS
January 11, 2012
My first reaction on this gun was yes, because of it weight how it looks and everything. My first shot was amazing because recoil kick's like a beast ,and on a beeman flat head pellet 7.85grs it sounded like a rifle and then after a couple shots later I used a gamo pba raptor ,then it kicked even harder and sounded like a rifle. My target I was shooting at was a 2 leter coke bottle, I shot it and it went through the bottle and through both sides of my friend tin sheid ,and the pellet went through the bottle so hard that it cracked the top and the top went in the air and about 14 feet away.

Ruger Air Magnum Rivle
August 6, 2011
Wow! I ordered this rifle expecting long delivery time. I was wrong! 10 days as we live in Hawaii where ship and handle fees kills saving made on internet purchases. I was wrong. Ship and handle for rifle and assorted goodies was free! The rifle is very heavy and sturdily constructed. It weighs the same as my National Match Garand. They need to add slings to this beast. Composite stock feels extremely comfortable and doesn't appear to be flimsily built. The coking effort for this rifle requires a minimum of 60#. It is definitely not a toy and the muzzle velocity seem to confirm velocity of 1200 fps or more on pellets weighing 7 - 8 grains. Sounds like a 22 cal. rifle When loaded with high velocity pellets. It knocked the heck out of wooden plank I was using as a backboard. It actually split apart. The cheap 4 X 32 scope it comes with appears to be flimsy as a particle cropped into objective after 30 or so rounds. It is an excellent clone of the RWS 350 Magnum. It should prove great for small game and other pests. Budget permitting I will purchase the same rifle in .22 cal. Impressive gun for the money!

This is a big boy gun, not a plinker, your arm will fall off, near 60lbs of force to cock. That said as many have alluded it is capable of fine accuracy. You have to learn the gun. I have a dime size group using Crosman premier heavies 10.5 gr at 35 yards. It also likes the Gamo rockets, long pellet good skirts and close to 10 gr. it doesn't like the light pellets. Hang at 9gr and up you will do okay. destroys pellet traps and targets. My gamo squirrel is bent, dented and other wise destroyed. i knock this down at 45 yards resting on a lawn chair back. Good gun.

this Ruger Air Magnum rifle
May 16, 2011
OMG, i just got this gun today, its big and heavy, just like a real gun, cocking it is a real task, very heavy spring, it is powerful air gun, i think it made for serious adult gun, no joke here, it needs a sling swivel for sling, cuz its heavy gun, i tested shot about 20 shots, all is great, got bull eyes after tighten up the scope, no problem, got 1/2 in group at 35 yards, all in the shooter, the gun is pretty accurate.

I purchased this rife for the price and this is my first brake barrow rifle. This rifle was sighted in very fast (without scope) and the pattern was less the a dime at 10 meter. I will sight in with the scope before I going hunting this spring.

Had to glue screws down in gun. Placed a barska scope on it. Gun hits harder than my quest, which recently killed two squirrels. Gun does hit hard, am working with different pellets to find "the one", loud with 4.5mm pellets but super acurate with light weight pellets. Gun is quieter if you use magnum pellets, way quieter. I only use the air rifles for hunting and dont take shots past 80-90 feet. I believe this rifle would take out a coyote at close range. I am super happy with this rifle and would say buy it. Good price and good gun.

Great Magnum Rifle For The Price

This is one hard hitting rifle. Great all weather stock with an ok scope. Best magnum powered rifle out there for the money.

By Jay Holmes from Jackson,Mississippi on December 30, 2011
Is this a good rifle and does it last long. About how long does it last.
By gabe from AL Gulf coast on January 21, 2012

Jay, that's a hard question to answer! But I will say this, I bought one of these from AGD back in the fall and it is built like a bulldozer. I cannot imagine this thing not lasting a heck of a long time. My friend and I shoot this thing two to three times a week and it delivers with no glitches. Its a lot of fun to shoot and I think it will last a long, long time. Buy one....At the price its cheaper than playing golf!!!

By Vinni from North Lauderdale, Florida on January 17, 2012
This is technically the first air gun I'm buying, and I want to know: can any .177 cal pellet be used, or are there types of magnum pellets that this gun is limited to?
By Andrew from Henderson, NV on January 17, 2012

There are no .177 cal pellets that this gun is limited to. My suggestion is to buy heavier pellets because the gun has a hard recoil and heavier would give you more accuracy on target. I would never recommend using PBA pellets in any gun as they are very in accurate on target, no mater what gun you have. If you have any more questions please contact me the same way you did the first time. Thank you
By bryan from saratoga, CA on January 17, 2012

You can use any .177 cal pellet. I have shot many different kinds with my Ruger Air Magnum. This a powerful air riffle and does best with the heavy pellets. For the price you can`t get a better riffle in my opinion. Good luck and hope you enjoy your riffle.
By sven from Magnolia, TX on January 18, 2012

I am using two different types of pallets. I use the RWS Superdome .177 for target shooting and fun they are very accurate. it took me a while to sight the scope but after it was done it is a fun to shoot target with the pallet. I actually took the rifle to the Shooting range and sighted it in for 50 Yards this pallet works great and it gives you a nice geouping.
I use the Beeman Silver Arrow for gridders because of the higher weight it slows down the speed but the additional weight makes more then up for it. You have to aim a liitle higher but when You hit the vermon it will go down. I used it on 1.5 inch particle board and the bullet goes through it. very good for vermon
By Robert from Portsmouth, VA on January 18, 2012

To start, this is one Awesome rifle, Yes you can use any .177 cal pellet out there but I found that it performs best with a heavier pellet. I've been using Benjamin Discovery 10.5 gr. pellets and it is dead on, time after time.
By gabe from AL Gulf coast on January 21, 2012

I have one of these and it was the most fun investment I ever made. I am old and retired so all I do is fish and shoot airguns. All of the answers before mine are 100% dead on accurate. Stay away from light pellets with this rifle. It don't like pellets less than 8grs. The lightest pellet I shoot is the RWS 8.3 Superdome which is very accurate and the AA Field Heavy 10.3. With a decent scope, this rifle will ding soda cans all day long at 65 yards. If you need the police, put a pba raptor in it, walk outside and shoot it and they will be there in a few minutes....that's based on if you live in a populated area of course.

By mitzi from roosevelt, utah on January 17, 2012
im thinking about buying this gun but i wanted to know how the people that have already bought this gun feel about it and if they would recremend it to someone who is looking to hunt small game such as rabbits, prarie dog, and birds. so if you have a answer to any of my questions please write back.
thank you.
By Robert from Palm Harbor, FL on January 20, 2012

I don't hunt but I enjoy shooting. I have BB and pellet guns and the real weapons. This Ruger Air Magnum falls in the class of a border line real gun. You'll be suprised and pleased with what a great rifle it is and how well made it's
made. I give it the max # of stars.
By gabe from AL Gulf coast on January 21, 2012

I am not going to show up as a verified buyer and I dont know why cause I bought one of these from AGD in the fall. This thing is extremely powerful and will kill anything you want in its capability. I use it to shoot everything you mentioned plus Nutria rats which can weigh up to 15 pounds. I use AA Field Heavy pellets at 10.3 grs and RWS 8.3 Superdomes. Less than 8 grains pellets do not work in this rifle as they exceed compressibility. The scope is not up to the potential of this rifle, but it works well on rimfire rifles and lower power springers. I use a Center Point 4-16X40AO and it handles the task. Buy this rifle, you will love it!!!!

By Sean from ca on January 17, 2012
will this kill squirrels at 50 yards. and what kind of group should i expect. Thanks Sean
By Andrew from Henderson, NV on January 18, 2012

You could kill the squirle if you could hit it. It has a massive recoil for an airgun so it is hard to shoot the same place twice. The grouping you can expect wih the iron sights is about 1inc and if you use the included scope, you can get that down to about .5inc about. It is hard to make It shoot where you want it to go. If you get a better scope than the Included one than you may get better shots and groups.
By bryan from saratoga, CA on January 18, 2012

More than enough power with the Ruger air Magnum to kill a squirrel at 50 yards. At that distance i get about half inch group. You are going to have to upgrade your scope though if you want distance shots.
By gabe from AL Gulf coast on January 21, 2012

The two answers before mine are exactly what I would say. The rifle is powerful and if you have the ability and the right scope it will exceed 50 yard kills. I replaced the scope with a centerpoint 4-16X40AO. Great scope and this rifle has not turned it into junk like all the others I tried. I have had great luck with the AA Field Heavy 10.3 gr pellet and for squirrels I would use the RWS Superdome 8.3 gr. I have not had much luck with pellets <8 grs as they exceed SOS. GET ONE....They are fun to shoot!!!!

I actually just bought this and i was wondering how far do you guys zero in this air rifle? I googled it and I was told to zero it in around 20 yards and I'll have 50 yards zero in as well.. with the whole pellet projectile ballistics n what not... but im curious what you guys did / think is best for the gun?

By Mike Hall from Deerlodge,TN on June 25, 2012
I just recieved my rifle and I read the pamphlet, but I cannot get the barrel to cock. Is there a screw or a button you have to push to unlock it or am I just too weak?

By Bob from Tampa, Florida on November 20, 2011
I read the manual twice and have examined the rifle carefully. Now I'm ready to use the gun for the frist time.
The break barrel is locked up. Am I missing something here? It woun't budge and I don't want to over force it.
By Staff on November 24, 2011

Sometimes you just have to put the butt of the rifle on your knee and give the barrel a good slap with an open palm. That's the easiest way to break the barrel .

By Chris from Phoenix, AZ on February 19, 2012
I am thinking of purchasing this gun as a gift for a guy who wants to be able to hunt small game (rabbit and smaller). My question is about the cost of good ammo for this gun. I am trying to find a good pellet gun that is sturdy, reliable, accurate, easy to operate and inexpensive to use. Is this that gun? It sounds like a smaller sized pellet doesn't cut it and he wants to stock up on a LOT of ammo, so price is an issue. Thanks so much for helping a "newbie"!
By sven from Magnolia, TX on February 27, 2012

I have bought the Ruger Air Magnum with the scope as a rifle for vermin control. I baought in addition to the rifle the Beeman silver arrow .177 pellets those pallets are a bit heavier so there is a slight loss of velocity but the additional weight makes more then up for it. The standard pellet penetrates a ¾ inch particle boards but the beeman silver arrow goes throu an inch of plywood plus half way through the particle board. This rifle an excellent choice for small animals such as rabbit and vermin the size of possum and smaller. After adjusting and the scope for the heavier ammo I always hit what I aim at and the vermin does go down with a proper placed first shot. I have this rifle now for almost 6 month and I am very satisfied with it. Just be aware this rifle has a recoil so don’t be surprised. I took this rifle to a shooting range to sight it in and the rifle turned head not because it was the only air rifle on the range but for its looks and accuracy
By dan palumbo from bronxville ny on February 27, 2012

the pellets are avail ,everywere ,i ordered a box with my gun ,and as far as the gun taing down small game i think its the strongest pellet gun i ever owned and the price was great
By B. from Madison, WI on February 27, 2012

To add, it would be an excellent rabbit or squirrel rifle. Be humane and always try for the head and keep your shots within reason. Make sure to sight it in and get to know the rifle, it does kick and report with any type of pellet in either lead or non-lead that I have used so far. Good rifle for the money, good luck and take care.
By Andrew from Henderson, NV on February 28, 2012

Well, you can buy 1000 rounds for about 10 dollars so it's inexpensive;however, this gun is allitle bit bad on accuracy because of the recoil. I suggest buy a nitro piston air rifle because it will be less loud and also more accurate. This gun is good on power it dents steel just like a .22lr bullet would do. Well If u have anymore questions feal free to respond :) happy shooting

By Jeff from COnyers,ga on April 30, 2012
will this kill a deer?
By Staff on May 2, 2012

No this would only work on small game, rats, squirrels, small birds.

By Big Bill from midwest USA on March 26, 2012
Will this shoot .177 BB's?? I had a couple large boxes of BB's when my rifle (It shot both BB's and pellets) got loaned out and never returned... :-(
By Staff on March 30, 2012

No it shoots .177 cal pellets only.

I would give it a 6/10 or 7/10 in loudness
