Just got one last week...

...and have only shot it a couple times, seems fairly accurate and pretty easy to empty the 10 shot magazine, just like my .22LR version. Dimensionally is the same as a 10/22, seems the balance isn't the same though (butt-heavy), trigger is odd feeling but it's fun to shoot and I expect it'll do what it's supposed to do!

Had 2 of them...sent them both back for a refund because they would not hold gas. Tried both Umarex and Crosman CO2 cartridges and they all leaked. Umarex needs to get their act together and redesign the cartridge sealing system. Otherwise it's a very nice rifle...too bad it doesn't hold gas. Some people were lucky enough to get a good one and like it, even with the heavy trigger. You may be lucky, I wasn't.

Received mine yesterday. Tried it out today. Fired one ten round mag,took a half hour break then tried again to find the CO2 had leaked out. I was using Daisy cylinders because I was warned not to use Crossmans…...…...……….Daisy cylinders were on sale at Walmart.
Raining here,maybe try it again tomorrow & report back?

So far, it has been the textbook definition of "mixed reviews".

I sent mine back. At my age I just don't want to deal with problems or trying to figure something out!

Thanks for the reviews. I was thinking of getting one, but maybe I will re-think it. Not enough time in my life to trouble shoot something that is supposed to be fun.

I don't need any gas leak problems. At my age, I leak enough gas!

Would you recommend it for someone who would use it only as a range toy? I.e. fire it till the co2 is gone bit no time delays in between?

We have a place to shoot airguns and would like to try something like this I stead of a spring gun.

Take a look at the Crosman 1077. Seems like a solid gun that has been around for a long time. It is CO2 and takes a rotary magazine with pellets.

I had one that leaked all gas immediately upon loading...obviously a bad valve. I sent it back and bought a second one that leaked all gas over a 2 hour period. I sent it back also. The problem with a slow leaking valve/seal is that you will be fighting velocity loss as you shoot at the range. If you buy from Pyramyd Air, and pay them an extra $10, they will test it to make sure that it actually works. I personally don't believe that you should have to pay extra to get something that works!! Until Umarex resolves the gas leak issue I would also recommend getting the Crosman 1077.

This.

Those two CO2 cartridges butt to butt didn't look like a good idea to me???

There have been a lot of complaints about the rifle not piercing both CO2 cartridges...seems the cartridge near the butt does not get pierced. I had one that only pierced the upper CO2 bottle.
