Ruger AirMagnum .177 Air Rifle Combo
I like this gun
I got this gun after buying the Gamo Bone Collector. The Gamo was a real piece of garbage. This gun is a little on the heave side, but shoots pretty well. I have been shooting at targets in my yard from 30 yards. It didn't take too long to get the scope set and its nice that this gun also has iron sights as well. It is also a little on the loud side. Louder than my .22 Ruger. Overall I think this is a great gun for the money.

Good all around gun If you keep the scope tight. After brake-in about 200 shots I could shot 10 shots at 100 ft. in group the size of a fifty cent pice not bad . During the brake in time the gun is loud the scope came lose twice but with some lock tight problem fixed.

Got this to practice plinking around the yard with my teenager. We both love it and with it he can hone skills while not at range. It also make a good deer chaser outer the back yarder.

Super accurate and Super loud
I bought this rifle to replace an older one and to finish off critters on my property. This air rifle is not made for kids. It's big and heavy but it is very accurate due to its rifled barrel. I can shoot a 1 inch group at 30 yards. The only thing I don't like about it is how loud it is. It's just as loud as my 22 rifle.

difficult to use
The spring is so strong, with my bad back, I have to bend it against something in order to reload it (or ask for help). Seems exceptionally heavy to hold and aim. Only one shot before you have to do it again. Havent seen that ground hog I want to use it on yet so only practice shots so far. Still dont know if it is powerful enough to do the job I bought it for.

This is a rifle that I would highly recommend to anyone who like to target shoot or hunt small game. I bought the .177 caliber version over the .22 caliber because of velocity and effective range. It does what it says. I have tested the velocity and it read 1466 FPS which is more than it was labeled. The accuracy is second to none as well as its power. The drawback of this weapon is that it is big, heavy, and very loud. It is definitely a rifle that you want to wear ear protection
