German quality and loaded with features, the Hammerli 850 AirMagnum is so much fun to shoot that you'll have a hard time putting it down. Let's start with the all-weather stock. You can take this gun anywhere and not worry about a fragile finish, because it's made from a durable polymer. It's ambidextrous, too, with a raised cheekpiece on both sides of the Monte Carlo stock!

This CO2 rifle uses an 88-gram AirSource cartridge, giving you about 200-250 shots before you have to change cartridges. The fiber-optic sights will help you acquire your target, but feel free to mount a scope on the 11mm dovetail rail. (Umarex also makes a dovetail-to-Weaver mount) The checkering on the pistol grip and forearm will help you get a good grip while you plow shot after shot from this 8-shot repeater. This gun is everything you ever hoped for in a CO2 repeater!

The fun never stops with this rifle! Ideal for plinking, shooting targets and spinners.

Hammerli/RWS is known for standing behind their guns, and their warranty has always been viewed as the best in the business. Made by Umarex for RWS.

Very solid accurate gun
May 3, 2014
Very solid gun, also very accurate. I have used RWS Superdome and Crosman Destroyer EX pellets and my groups are about 1/2" at 30 yards (crosman is 1/2" with a couple fliers). I mounted a Tasco 4-12x44 AO scope to the gun, you may think that is a little much, but it is not. The gun out of the box is good to about 40 yards with about 2 inches of drop (sighted in to 25 yards). I installed a heavier hammer spring and now I can shoot about 50 yards with 2 inches of drop. It knocks birds right over at 30-35 yards (I even shot one at 50 yards). The trigger is adjustable and is two stage. I get about 200 shots from one 88g co2. So far I have shot about 1000 pellets through the gun and am very pleased.
Pros:
Quality Accuracy Feel
Cons:
none

1st use review
March 13, 2014
I ordered and configured my Hammerli 850 .177/4, 5 mm based upon good reviews on this and other sites. I bought the weaver scope adapter, compensator, 2 extra magazines, 3 tins 500 each - RWS R 10 Match 177 cal/4,5mm 7g pellets and 1 pkg of 500 - RWS assorted pellets for sight-in ., 1 box of 24 88g CO2 cartridges . I also bought and had the gunsmith mount a Nikon Prostaff Target 3-9X40mm EFR scope. Everything was in fine order. I have only fired about 24 pellets through the gun at this review. Later I may do an update. I bought the Hammerli 850 for shooting starlings and black birds that come in flocks to overwhelm my bird feeders. I was using a 22 rifle with subsonic ammo, but felt it was too much for the job. REMARKS: 1. Some other reviews have complained about pellets falling out of the 8 pellet rotary clip. The Hammerli manual shows how to orient the clip and insert the pellets. The clip can be laid on a flat surface with the metal center facing up. The pellets are dropped in with the hollow portion facing up i.e. the back of the pellet, then just press them down with your thumb and the inside rubber holds them in place. They won' fall out, they won't hang up in the gun and the bolt action works fine, even if it is a little tight at first. Perhaps the rubber inside the clip is a recent design improvement. 2. Another review said to screw the CO2 cartridge in until it stops to get a tight seal, that is correct, but a bright Warning was included with my gun saying: "Screw the AirSource capsule into the valve thread until the end of the cap is pierced. Continue to turn until firmly tightened and then slacken by one quarter (1/4) of a turn in order to equalize tolerances between brands of CO2 cartridge." 3. The user manual must be read so you get the latest information for your weapon.
Pros:
No complaints about the gun, it feels solid to me, even a bit heavy but well balanced. Some complain about the plastic stock, but I prefer them as wood stocks can occasionally warp.. In about 1-1/2 clips I had it sighted in pretty good and shooting quarter size patterns at 50 feet or 16.6 yards/16 meters. The indoor range I belong to, was too cold and had mechanical problems with the target return or I believe I could have had dime size patterns on sight-in day. I have only positive remarks about the gun, and online advice at this time. Thank you to those who took the time to leave a review.
Cons:
My "cons" are not with the weapon. This is the first pellet gun I have ever purchased and I was confused by the lack of information and the layout of some internet sites. This may be just my individual problem. 1st I wanted a scope mount, but only an adapter was offered and it mentioned Weaver. I did not know that Weaver is a standard, and since I bought a Nikon scope I didn't buy the Weaver adapter until my gunsmith told me I needed it. So that delayed everything by more than a week, plus extra shipping cost. Also, I didn't want to buy a case of 24 88g CO2 cartridges, nor pay shipping, but I found later that I could not buy them locally and then had to go back and order them from AirGun Depot, 24 for $170. This added delay and increased my costs, which removed some of the fun from the initial research and purchase. I also worried if the Air-Venturi 88g CO2 cartridges would work in my Hammerli 850, or if Hammerli (RWS? Umarex?) required a proprietary cartridge. So, for me, who knew nothing of pellet guns, to feel comfortable and not make mistakes that resulted in long delays and unexpected costs, I needed more basic and advanced information about what I was buying, why I might want it and what it would work with.

Perfection from Germany
November 24, 2013
I just got mine a week ago from Airgun Depot.. It is very very much like a real rifle!!! I also have Crosman 1077 which I still love.... (It will put holes in metal roofing from 20 feet!!! I sighted my 850 rifle in with a Center Point bore laser and my cousin fired it and tweaked the scope live. My cousin has a break barrel air gun but he was really very impressed by the Hammerli 850!!! NO noise from the gun or recoil !!!! You hear the hammer and the impact PERIOD. I got the Umarex co2 adapter from Airgun Depot and it works great. Do place the penny between the 12 gm cartridges but if you don't that is OK... the one will supply all you need but for less time as that is how co2 works!!! I got the RWS 6x42 IMR scope...awesome. UTG Dragon Claw bipod. The Umarex compensator is great with electrical tape wrapped finely from back to front and it DOES quiet the gun!!! This rifle is quite light and fun. Get all the extras and you will have a blast !!!! You will feel like a sniper that can not miss !!!!
Pros:
Quality. Walther barrel. Quiet. Powerful. Accurate. FUN !!!!!
Cons:
ZERO

Good bang for the buck, don't use in sunlight!
November 6, 2013
So the Hammerli 850 is a great co2 gun. Very simple to open up and clean, modifications I can see can be easily made to make it a bit more powerful and accurate. Throw a scope on it and you will be grouping very well at 30-40 yds. My one major complaint: prone to locking up in the heat. I have difficulty with the gun over 80 degrees in the backyard and that has soured my enjoyment of it. The easy fix is to install a slightly heftier spring to make certain that the gas gets released.

Fantastic rifle
May 10, 2013
This rifle is truly amazing. Solid, well built and not too heavy. I am using RWS Meisterkugeln pellets and the accuracy is impressive. At 25-30 yards, you will always hit the bullseye. I am using Walther CO2 cartridges and you can easily shoot 30 magazines before noticing any pellet drop. Attaching a bipod on the plastic CO2 cover can be tricky, but you will not regret it.
Pros:
Accurate Well made 8 round magazine is great when you hunt and need that quick second shot
Cons:
Too much oil on the metal parts when I received it, but nothing to worry about.

The 850
October 18, 2012
When this gun shoots it is a great accurate and powerful shooter. However, it has a major design flaw. The rotary magazine does not always line up with the chamber, which limits the bolt from going forward. Also, when you pull the bolt back it can grab a pellet and drop it into the trigger housing causing the gun not to operate. They need to have the rotary magazine click into place to prevent this problem. After only two months of use we had to send this gun back to the manufacturer because the bolt kept grabbing the pellets and dropping them into the trigger housing causing the gun not to operate. This is a major design flaw but Umarex\Hammerli does not cover it under their warranty. They call this an "operator error." The issue with this gun is that it is hard to tell when the magazine is lined up with the chamber. If it is not properly lined up the bolt can grab the pellet when you pull it back making the gun useless and in need of repair as the pellets will drop into the trigger housing. The cost for repair is $60 shipping (total both ways) and $54 for Umarex to fix the gun.
Pros:
Great feel and great accuracy.
Cons:
Major design flaw where pellets can fall into the trigger housing making this gun inoperable. This problem is not covered by the warranty.

RWS 850

I am over 80 years old, and have to shoot from a wheel Chair... I can put sixteen out of sixteen in my quarter sized target at twenty five yards, for the first one hundred shots.. From there it is down hill to about one hundred sixty shots...

Most accurate rifle i have ever owned
February 19, 2009
This is the best gun i have ever had. Accurate, powerful, beautiful! what else could you ask for??? I have the .177 version and ive been shooting it for aboout an hour a day, using mostly RWS DIABLO's. It is lite, and most of all accurate! I shot a dime sized hole at 25 yards after sighting in my leapers 3-9x50 scope. The next thing is power! This will go through a crow no problem at 15-25 yards with wadcutters. (the bad thing about wadcutters is that they lose all there power after 15 yards, thats why i use gamo pro magnums for hunting most of the time). I am still experimenting with different kinds of pellets. And when it comes to the desighn, there are the pros and the cons. The trigger and the bolt system is amazing! Though the only thing i didnt realy dig was the hollow stock. rws cut a corner on that. Other than that, this is the best gun i have ever had!!! i would reccomend this to anybody!!! If you buy it, you wont be dissapointed!!!!!

Powerful
May 14, 2007
This is a quality air rifle that is well engineered from end to end. Beautiful sights and very accurate without a scope. The gun packs a powerful punch because of the efficient way that the product is engineered...no leaky C02...etc. The gun has impressive looks, too. It would be great if the gun had a magazine clip so that you could shoot in the semi-automatic mode (comes with a bolt action, 8 round magazine) - and it would be great if the gun were a bit lighter. However, this is a great shooter, and these are minor complaints about a superb air rifle. For the money, this air gun is HIGHLY recommended.

Great Rifle
April 9, 2007
This rifle is one of the best rifles I have shot in a long time very accurate and powerful. Both front and rear sights are adjustable on the fly (no tools required). The bolt action is smooth for the most part; when loading a new magazine its a little finicky but nothing to worry about. The CO2 is advertised as getting about 400 shots but you will be lucky to get half that. All and all its a great gun.

i hade the crossman 1077 rifle for a while but i think it would be more at home in a in a bb war than a hunting trip.i also have the smksx78 with a silencer, a bipod and a huge ass scope, that is the best rifle i have ever owned, however i need a mulishot rifle. the 850 is truly an amazing rifle. you want my advice GET IT!!!

Top Notch Air Rifle
January 5, 2007
The 850 is a well made smooth action accurate, quality air rifle. I use to have the Crossman semi auto Nightstalker. That rifle was poorly made and the loading mechanism was very poor quality and badly designed. The Nightstalker began to jam to the point of uselessnes. I tried the Winchester breakbarrel 1000SB. This rifle was better made but required phenominal exertion for a single shot. Taking out critters like squirrels was to much of a workout and they don't wait around for you to break barrel twice. The RWS 850 was the final solution to fast powerful all around shooting with no fuss or muss. Highly recommend model.



By Dave G from Stevens Point Wi on December 30, 2011
My question is this, can you leave the co2 cartridge in this Hammerli 850 co2 Magnum gun without harming the seals, or can you take the co2 cartridge out in between use? I look on the web did not see any info on this.
A crosman 1077 co2 gun, the reps said they recommend that you do not do it as it harms the seals over a long period.
By Staff on January 9, 2012

Answer:
I would make the same recommendation as it can harm the seals, this would be the same for any Co2 rifle that has the a full tank left in the gun for long periods.

By Sam from Lombard illinois on December 22, 2011
Hi m question is i want to get this for my dad but what were lookign to shoot is woodpeckers attacking our house. Is this to much?
By Frank from Glenview, IL on January 7, 2012

Answer:
My experience has been with squirrels and chipmonks damaging our property. One hollow point pellet will normally remove one of these pests. The effectiveness with woodpeckers would depend on distance. I would estimate that it would be very effective from inside 30 yards.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 8, 2012

Answer:
No, this will be perfect!

By Robert Jankowsky from Tennessee on May 21, 2012
How loud is this unit? Can you get repeat shots without the noise scaring the pray?
It IS accurate though so you shouldn't have to.
By Staff on May 21, 2012

Answer:
this is a semi loud rifle. You would not get multiple shots off on prey, most likely.
