Umarex Surge .177 Air Rifle
Love it! Looks sharp ! Had no trouble sighting it in!

This gun blew me away. The first 5 or so shots were as loud/louder than a real firearm, due to the amount of oil in the barrel/piston. And the first shots also let out a lot of smoke from the barrel.
After sighting in the scope, I was able to hit a penny at 25 yards on the first try. This gun blows straight through birds, frogs, glass bottles, fiberglass boats, animal skulls, and whatever else I shot at today.
Feels very nice in your hands, ergonomic hand grip, smooth-as-butter 2 stage trigger, and isn't difficult to cock.
Downsides: The safety turns on every time you chamber a pellet (which is somewhat common on pellet rifles)
The scope doesn't have mil-dots
There aren't any iron sights, only a scope
Overall, it's 200% worth the $120 it costs. I would absolutely buy it again if I ever lost the rifle for some reason. Highly recommended for any shooters on a budget.

This air rifle is great. The rifle holds a nice group even out to 60 yds. I have been using this to rid my bird feeder of squirrels and chipmunks and I never have to worry about the rifle not performing. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is that i would have liked it to have iron sights in addition to the scope. Don't get me wrong though the scope is pretty good for the price range here. SO far it has held the zero for about 200 shots now...which some of the other "included" scopes seem to have a problem with. For the money you can't go wrong with this one. Besides it looks cool too.

Powerful and Loud
Got this rifle the other day and couldn't wait to fire it. The rifle is a bit heavy, not suitable for a kid or most women. When I first fired it I was amazed how loud it was. It sounded like my 30 30. At 1200 ft per second it has amazing hitting power. Not much left of a squirrel or chipmunk at 30 yards. Have to be careful when I shoot it, even through I live down a dirt road in the woods, the neighbors keep calling the cops.
