The Umarex Gauntlet has an incredible amount of features for it's price tag. Many of which are usually only found on much more expensive rifles. The Gauntlet is a rotary mag fed rifle that will allow quick follow-up shots. You can fill the 210cc bottle to just over 200 bar (3,000 psi) and receive 60+ consistent shots due to the on board regulator that allows for precise airflow shot after shot regardless of how much air you either have or don't have. The other upside to the regulator is that you don't need to fill your rifle to the full 3,000 psi full fill. So using your hand pump you can just pump it up to 2,000 psi, still get 20-30 full powered shots before needing to refill your air. This is a great option!
Other features include an all-weather ambidextrous synthetic stock with built-in sling swivels. A foster quick disconnect fill port to the on-board air cylinder. An adjustable comb on the stock to help gain the perfect cheek weld. And the barrel is fully shrouded to reduce the rapport and sound of the Umarex Gauntlet making the rifle backyard friendly as well as hunting friendly. Truly the Gauntlet punches well above its weight and delivers a lot of rifle at a great price. And with this starter combo you can have everything you need to enjoy years of shooting with your Gauntlet PCP air rifle. It's time to get off the fence and see why everyone is falling in love with PCP air guns.

it was a real mix up at 1st! I thought I ordered the Gauntlet but the other PCP came called the URBAN. After looking at it I sent it back and the exchange from the Air Gun Depot DID AN AMAZING JOB sending me the Gauntlet.
I just wish I could send a picture with this but just imagine! 12 shots at 35 Yards, and a Dime covers up all 12 shots!
I just did a Woodchuck Job! All 9 chucks taken care of!
Thanks Gamo! For making the Gauntlet such a affordable Gun!
I zeroed it well. I have no problem hitting things down range and reaching further with practice.
to me the quality is there. The gun has no blemishes.
I am impresssed with the built in features for what I paid
It was accurate right out of the box after a good barrel cleaning. I was making one hole at 40 yards with JSB 8.4 grain 177 pellets.
But something was terribly askew. I found every time I went to shoot the gun, the point of impact (POI) changed by upwards of 2 inches at that same 40 yards. I sat back and looked at the gun to figure out why. The scope was tested and tight and my bench rest set up was the same each time.
Then it hit me. There is a whole lot of barrel hanging out there with a relatively heavy shroud. The barrel is attached by two small grub screws in the breech and the shroud is screwed into a fitting on the barrel, not the breech. That entire set up begs for movement and in my opinion a MAJOR design change.
So since owning the gun for the last few months, I have learned not to touch or even bump the barrel in any way shape or form or it will be off target again.
In the video, you can see the gun supported by the barrel by the front holder. You can also see the barrel is bent up under the gun's weight and that is exactly what will happen to all of them if anyone chooses to mount the gun in that configuration.
So, warning to all who buy this gun, or have seen POI changes when they shoot it. Do not grab or lift the gun by the barrel or lay it down on the barrel or rest it on the barrel. Consider the barrel at 2000 degrees to be untouched at all costs. It actually surprises me that mere shooting alone doesn't jar the barrel enough to shift the POI, but it does seem to hold its own under normal shooting conditions.
I am sure someone will come up with a connection between the air cylinder and the barrel, but even the cylinder is shaky too.
5 minutes of pumping for 70 consistent shots is no problem. Got my back yard rifle range going good. Ready on the right (no golfers ) ready on the left ( no golfers) already on the firing line.
Don't have time to go to the range.. This is the ultimate shooting opportunity for me.
Did I mention this is an awesomely accurate gun? Love it!!
Quiet gun. Like they say in the videos, shot hitting target is louder than the report.
Love my Gamo IGT Wisper. Not quite as accurate as this puppy though and the neighbors can tell when I'm shooting the springer, they don't know when I'm in the backyard with this one.
. Not perfect but this is the perfect Airgun for me in the sub 500 buck range..
What's the hand pump it takes 120 pumps for every 1000 PSI of air. So between 1000 PSI and 3000 psi it takes me 240 pumps of air to fill the air tank.
