If you like to hunt small game, the Octane Elite is sure your hunting trips more enjoyable. Leaving your air rifle cocked a bit longer while you wait for your prey to become available won't hurt your gun at all since it has no metal mainspring.  The biggest additions to this model are Umarex's ShotShox recoil system designed to cushion the forward and rear thrust of the piston spring.  Additionally, the all-weather synthetic stock has been enhanced for a better cheek weld, thicker pistol grip, and a palm swell on the fore end.

The Octane Elite gives shooters options for sighting with fiber optic green and red sights or use the included 3-9x40 for zeroing in on targets and small game. With the Octane Elite, you have all the advantages of a hard shooting gas piston, with the attention to detail that Umarex on the map.

I am thinking the .22 got taken apart and rehabbed by someone who knew the right moves for this model. How else could you explain dr jekyll and mr hyde?

Well, i have 2 of these. First one i bought was in .22 caliber and it was from the rebuilt bargain bunker. I got it out of the package and afterthe first 5 shots the safety malfunctioned. Like fell off. Noticed the trigger was wobbly as well, so i adj best i could. I then checked it for zero and it has been an absolute complete rock star hero since then-hits like a ton of bricks- racoons are history with a body shot-it likes the jsb's 14 to 18 grain. Very accurate also, can hit a 2 inch target consistently at 70 yds. I haven't cronoed this one but it shoots a lot harder than my hatsan sniper and that one cronoed at 1150 with the same ammo. The best part of this gun is you can leave it cocked for an extended period of time and it retains almost the same punch as if you were shooting back to back rounds. It's great, always grab this one if i need to get a shot off quickly.

The .177, came new in the box, paid full retail- trigger was better-ok, it was slightly better, marginally better. The safety works ok. The gun shoots hard for a .177 but it isn't accurate at all. Holds a 8 inch pattern at 40 yards-ew, that's awful. Cleaned the barrel, tried all kinds of ammo-all suck. Gun still shoots hard, tho. I tried a different scope- no better on accuracy. I have tried several times to salvage this one, but so far it's just a gun cabinet resident, unqualified to perform. Sorry umarex- tale of 2 guns, same model. If someone wanted to buy it i would gladly sell it.

Small side covers strip easily but they are not necessary and rifle looks better without it. Make sure to lock tight the barrel/breach screw or it will come loose. Stopshock has a very unusual recoil, u must hold this gun tightly like a powder burner, do not use the artillery hold. Rifle is very heavy and shots great from the bench. Very accurate once u get used to it. The scope is way to powerful for a break barrel, put a cheaper scope in it and save the Umarex scope for a pcp or a .22lr.

Great stock, comfortable, very nice scope, silencer works great, very quiet. Very accurate once you learn how to shoot it. Excellent value for the money.

Small side stock covers strip easily, stopshock takes a while to get used to. Cooking is heavy, but this is a magnum rifle. Scope rings are ok.

If you want an air rifle that's perfect out of the box I wouldn't recommend this one. The trigger needs work and it's enough to be a deal breaker, sorry Umarex. I'm calling customer service about the trigger, it might be defective. You also have to pull the safety back towards the trigger to disengage it and that just isn't right but the trigger is so heavy that you aren't going to pull it by accident. The scope is nice and bright and the Stopshox works great. Overall I would love this rifle with a half decent trigger but I have to see if I can get it worked out with Umarex if not I'm gonna have to send it back. This sucker is heavy and it takes some effort to cock it, not for kids. It gets decent velocities. I chronographed it at between 850 and 900 fps with a 18 grain lead pellet and 1166 fps with a 9.9 grain alloy pellet, it hits hard and accurate.

Nice sights and the scope is decent for the money. Accuracy is good and no need for the artillery hold.

First and foremost the trigger is horrible with a heavy pull and sharp edges that wears your finger raw. Safety would be a concern with a decent trigger but no worries here.

Original octane was dead on accurate, 1200 pellets Thursday my elite and it is still2 inch spread with jab 18.13 pellets!

No pros

Very disappointed

By DavidUSAApril 9, 2019 Verified Purchase

I just got the gun shot it maybe 25 shots and noticed a screw head is striped, and cuts on the front sight assembly, called Customer service and im sending it back and they will send me a new rifle, i love the gun, and so far so good, i,ll let you know how it goes after this.

Accurate so far sighting in the scope was easy if you do it right, the cocking get,s easy after awhile.

No sling attachments, gun is heavy.

By DarryllAugust 27, 2018

I changed the scope to a simple 4-9 Center Point, and the ability to zero the gun increased dramatically. Use 177 Gamo Fire rounds at 27 and 37 yards. Quiet gun even with rounds at 1,200 fps. Adjusted the trigger to minimum pull, and it improved, though not perfect trigger pull.

Wii shoot consistently with rigt scope and ammo.

Why is it so hard for the manufacturers to put a descent scope on these machines.

By jeremySeptember 4, 2017

well balanced very accurate. great feel in hands . can't even feel the recoil.

scope is junk. don't have 300 pellets through the gun and the scope is falling apart already.

By RichardSeptember 3, 2017

I really like the way the gun feels when shot, Talk about smooth. : ) the extra magnum class weight is well balanced. I found my goto .22


wish it had a sling or at least mounts included.

I bought the Octane Elite based on my experience with the first-generation Octane. Like the first-gen Octane, the Octane Elite is far from perfect but, once all of the issues are addressed I'd put it up against some of the most expensive break barrel air guns on the market. To begin with, the trigger is horrendous but easily fixed by installing the aftermarket Match-Grade-Trigger component now available for the Octane and clone air rifles. Then there's the issue of the loudness of the gun when fired. My first-gen Octane is one of the most quiet air rifles I've ever owned. This new Octane Elite is one of the loudest; not backyard friendly at all. After some careful inspection I found that the reason for this was that the thru-hole on the cap at the end of the Silence-Air suppressor on my Octane Elite measured a whopping .3515" in diameter. The same hole in my first-gen Octane measures .305" in diameter. I have since then put out requests to my fellow Octane shooters to measure the thru-hole in the caps of their Octane suppressors to see just how much variance there is from one to the other. The differences were astounding. As far as the touted velocity levels attainable by the Octane Elite, mine were no where near the stated velocities with lead or non-lead pellets. The reason for this is mainly due to the damaged piston seals in nearly all Octane and clone air rifles sold. I don't really care about warranties so I take my air guns completely apart in order to find where the causes of all these short comings originate. With respect to the piston seals, the slot that's been milled into the underside of the receiver leaves two very sharp serrated edges that the seal must contend with upon installation. Without smoothing over these serrated edges, it's nearly impossible to install a new piston seal without damaging it in the process. When I do it, I take the time to round off those sharp edges. When they do it at the factory, the assembly line manufacture does not afford them the luxury of smoothing off these damaging sharp edges. When an Octane is returned for the replacement of the piston seals, generally speaking, the techs doing the replacing don't round off those sharp edges either so they end up damaging the brand new piston seal they're installing. I know that on the face of it everything I've written thus far seems terribly negative but to me it's just an annoyance. It's not a deal breaker. I and many other Octane owner/shooters know how to fix these issues; and once fixed, we end up with air rifles that would make the owners of the higher end break barrels air rifles hang their heads in shame. The sad irony is that once you take it upon yourself to fix these issues you stand a good chance of voiding the warranty that your Octane or Octane Elite comes with; and if you send it back, they WILL replace parts for you but the parts they replace generally make no difference in performance. Umarex Octane customer service people are really nice folks but they are more like stock clerks, not service techs. So many of them that I've spoken to have very little hands on experience with the inner working of the products they are their to service.

Power and accuracy when all the short comings have been fixed.

Hollow tupper-ware sounding synthetic stock, rickety feeling, internally damaged seals from the factory and a trigger pull that's the laughing stock of the budget break barrel air gun world.

This is a wonderful .22 rifle. I have shot it about 150 times and it has the potential to be a tack driver. The only thing that I can complain about is a very bad trigger. The trigger has a pull from 8 lbs 13 oz to 9 lbs 2 oz, not good for a rifle of this class. I love the rifle, I have shot many 5 shot one hole groups, but I really have to work to get it. I put a UTG 3 x 12 x 44 mil-dot scope on it and it is a great performer. There was nothing wrong with the scope that came with the rifle, just wanted a mil-dot scope. Other that the trigger, I am happy. The people at AirgunDepot were great, and the shipping was really fast. Great job guys. Frank

Very accurate Power to spare Very comfortable to shoot Easy loading Auto-safety Back yard friendly

Very bad trigger
