Ruger Air Hawk .177 Caliber Air Rifle Combo
Best Bang For Your Buck
So listen here I bought this gun today at the local bass pro shops for my nephew. When we got back to cabin we opened the box and saw the quality of the rifle and were ready to fire it. I bought a large assortment of pellets including the Gamo Redfire hollowpoints. The first shot I let him take and there must have been grease in the barrel because it sounded like my ar15 and shot out a lot of smoke. It was fine after that. Accurate up to around 150 yds. I reckon it was the nicest pellet gun i've ever shot for the price. Ruger has done it again with another quality product that has the integrity of the real guns. Buy this Gun!

Best purchase ever
For all you guys baggin on this gun you apparently got the lemon. This has been the easiest air rifle that I have ever set up. I have had the gun for almost a year now and have had absolutely no problems at all. The scope took me all of maybe ten shots to sight in and I haven't had to change it yet. Sorry about everyones luck who gave this gun a bad review. This is by far the best hundred dollar air rifle on the market in my opinion and I've owned many.

I purchased this rifle on Nov. 24, 2008. After putting the scope on and sighting it in I read over the instruction book that came with the rifle. In it Ruger says that the weapon will not have repeated accuracy until after 1000 rounds had been shot through it. By Saturday January 10, 2009 I had fired over 1500 rounds through the weapon and it was now getting to where I didn't have to re-site the scope in after every 10 shots. Then the rifle broke. At first I just thought some trash had gotten into the spring/piston area but after tearing the gun down I found that the tabs securing the spring guide tube had snapped off and jummed between the spring and the housing. Since I took the gun down I'm sure I voided the warranty so I filed and sanded the grooves in the spring guide tube, removed all the metal tabs and cleaned it up and put it back together. It now shoots fine and accurately but the spring is rubbing against the tube because one of the tabs had wedged itself there and dented the tube. Ruger should have designed the spring/piston without using tabs to hold it together. It lasted less than 2 months before breaking. I have had other weapons for years and they haven't broken yet. I would not reccomend this weapon.

Great out of the box air rifle
Well balanced airgun. Got home, took out of the box, put together and went hunting for squirrel hunting, Was impressed at how acurate it was for a air rifle.
