It is easy to crack and easy to load the pellet. The barrel assist mechanism helps to break the barrel for loading. Sometimes you forget to take it off before shooting. Not sure if it affects the shooting or if it ruins the tool. After a while, you learn to take it off the barrel before you shoot.
It is a little heavy but it is very very very solid. I am impressed on how this thing is made. The only issue I have is that there is no specific carrying case. Since this measures 18inches long, you have to buy a rifle case that is twice as long.
I did order the 11mm scope mounts, the ones with two screws each as the kick will misalign wimpier ones in short order. These along with a small scope are due today.
the power is unreal . it feels like the real heaver target pistols and the site colore red and green are great..
I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in a real good quality made air pistol.
I am happy and recommend to purchase.
Screws are all tight,and do not seem to back out, handle is comfy, sights are clear, finish is good.
For the quality, this gun should cost twice what it does!
I have to say that for the price your funds are well spent on either of these fine gins (or both, like me).
I shoot better than I can off hand, so I am the weak link.
It does require a two handed, bent arm, shooting position due to the weight.
It was capable of good groups from a distance of 30 meters (and no apparent loss of power at that distance).
I am sure that this gun would be quite a hunter, not only for controlling small pests, but also larger animals.
That said, I am very satisfied with my purchase very good quality \ price.
Thank you again.
On the fourth shooting session (about 100 pellets total) I encountered a problem with the gun. I could hear soething rattling around inside the gun and then it would not cock. I could pump but the stroke was not completing.
I called airgun depot, but unfortunately it was just barely past the 30 day warranty. They did advise me to contact Umarex, which I did. I sent the gun to Umarex.
They had the gun 1 day and fixed it and sent it back. They had replaced the receiver since there was a piece that had come unsrewed and jammed in the receiver.
The gun now works flawlessly. I have to say I was most impressed with the service from Umarex. I figured I would be lucky to see the gun back in a month. I got it back in 10 days and most of that was shipping time.
Good service all around.
The grip is also a little small for larger hands.
I found it to be very accurate with open sights, but I will mount a red dot to accomodate my aging eyesight.
I took me a while to figure out the best way to hold it when shooting off a bag. You will have to experiment, but once you figure it out it will shoot tight groups all day long.
My only issue is with the cocking assist handle. It is sbvious that repeatedly taking it on and off will mar the blueing on the barrel. I will have to chrony test and accuracy test to see if it makes any difference leaving it on while firing. You do have to be careful when pumping so that you don't twist the handle on the cocking stroke. I see where you could twist the front sight off if you were not careful. I had been forewarrned from another review and took extra care with no issues.
All things considerered I think it is a good deal at this price and definitely a big boy toy!!!
It is a very powerful pistol for its type and very accurate. The price is very low for an item with this quality and performance.
