Reaching 1050 fps with 22 cal lead pellets, and 1250 fps with lighter pellets, this rifle packs a punch, about 25 pounds of it. This affects the recoil. Before you have learnt how to grip the stock in the perfect way, the recoil will jump the rifle about quite a lot. These powerful forces at work could also loosen the screws a bit after a couple of hundred rounds, so getting some Loctite or similar product is highly recommended. The Umarex Octane weighs a sturdy 9.5 pounds, it is 48.5 inches long. You need to use about 38 pounds of pressure to cock it. It has a Umarex patented SilencAir 5 chamber silencer, that brings the noise level down to a low 95.1 db when shooting outdoors. The silencer has the tru-glo front sight attached on top of it. This is a great sight, but you need to take care not to slam down on the silencer / front sight assembly when cocking the rifle, that could damage it. The rear sight is also tru-glo fibre optics. You probably won't be using the iron sights that much though, since the rifle comes equipped with a nice 3-9×40 AO scope, that gives a more solid impression than most other air rifle combo scopes. The scope is not a mildot, it is a duplex reticle. This might be a problem for you, depending on what you are used to. The scope attaches with rings to a Weawer rail, that for some reason lacks a stopper.
