    If it is not offered in .25 with a reasonable 40+ ft/lb, then, I am not interested at any price. ;)

    8.5 pounds is a bit heavy, but features for dollars, WOW

    ​More details:
    Umarex GauntletProduct Group: Air Rifles
    Brand: Umarex
    Caliber: .22 (5.5mm), .177 (4.5mm)
    Ammo Type: Pellets
    FPS w/Alloy Pellet: 1100 (.22), 1200 (.177)
    Stock Material: Synthetic
    Barrel Length: 28.5″
    Overall Length: 46.75″
    Accessory Rail: 11mm dovetail
    Weight: 8.5 lbs
    Capacity: 10, single shot optionTrigger: Adjustable, single stageAir Flow: Regulated, non-adjustableMechanism: Pre-charged Pneumatic, bolt actionWarranty: 3-year limited warranty

    ​Non-adjustable is a negative, I’d like to be able to tune my gun.  The speed of 11 FPS or 1200 FPS is a bit high for my liking.  I’d go down to get better pellet stability.  I’ll wait and see.

    I’d like to see some in hand reviews, and also information on the cost of replacement air tanks for the gun. 

    ​Still, glad to see guns like this coming to market.  Shows that PCP doesn’t have to be a $1000 plus game.  This is GOOD! and the gun still gets a WOW for price / features.

    appears to be standard paint ball tank they are cheap ,,,,,and Catalina makes a 22 CI (360CC) about $55 ….13  CI tank are cheap and plentiful 

    all regs are adjustable when taken apart its just not externally adjustable on the rifle while under pressure,  Name a few at any price that the REG is adjustable while on rifle and charged.  Adjustable transfer ports yes common regulators externally adjustable while charged ???  Please name a one for me at any price point  ??   

    Guys this is a $299 rifle if they used quality sourced barrels I can think of a few rifle brands that are so SUNK

FPS are for alloy pellets so standard lead should be right on. I suspect tinkerers will quickly figure out how to mod the gun to adjust power (i.e. cut coils from hammer spring, etc).

    Has Umarex ever made anything good?

    Everything I’ve had with the Umarex label has broken with no possibility of repair (as Umarex wouldn’t sell any spare parts) after owning them for a few weeks. 

    In fact, it was the poor quality and service from Umarex that put me off CO2 guns completely. I wonder if their PCP guns will be any better.

    I have no doubt they can make a cheap regulated bottle gun but it’s only good value of it’s a good product. A diamond for $1000 could be the best or the worst deal on earth depending on the quality. 

    I’m not sure a bottle is a good thing on a dirt cheap PCP gun. People that buy the cheapest guns usually use hand pumps so a small cylinder like on the Marauder pistol makes more sense. I wouldn’t want to pump a bottle but then again, I don’t want to pump anything.

    Looks like the perfect gun to bounce around on the floor of the pickup.

    Warranty service?
    They do seem to be using the Ninja bottles, if so 10fps ES max, that’s very nice.   Without even seeing one I feel comfortable saying my BQ78-HPA will out run it, except, that darn clip, folks ( even myself when shooting tin cans) do like clips. 
     I’ll be waiting to see the ease of DIY mods & repairs ( and can the trigger be improved-  tho perhaps they got it just right already but I am thinking Umarex so?-  it does seem a value priced platform.
