“Alan”My opinion differs!

I ended up with a Umarex Octane as a result of buying a dud at Big5. I am sorry I don’t just get my money back! Try as I may, no pellet I could find shot well in the gun. The best accuracy I got, was with 18 grain pellets, and even then the groups were about 2 inches at 10 yards. I can do better than that with my Barrett slingshot!

God luck!


Hi, Alan, I went through the same thing with a cheap Beeman springer, after fooling with cheap springers for a year I finally caved and bought an R9. I found a night and day difference in quality and shootability. Mounted scope, sighted in, started shooting great groups! Not saying you need or want a springer, just if you run across a fellow shooter with a quality gun you might ask to give it a try.
