650fps, straight-pull repeater.
Uses a 10rd replica BX magazine too.

Any likelyhood of seeing them here I wonder.

I've seen them for pre-order so they must be coming.

Depending on how they review I might do a like for like swap from my Crossman 1077 to this.

wonder how much ?
they actually look pretty cool, wonder what they are actually like.... how does a .177 air rifle compare to a 22lr? no where near it im guessing?
still be fun plinking, or shooting feral birds.

The only questions I have is that it takes 2 C02 cartridges where as thje Crossman 1077 only takes one. They both have the same claimed power of 600fps and the Crossman will shoot over 40 pellets with 1 c02 cartridge. So does that mean the Umarex will shoot 80+? I rarely shoot even one full c02 cartridge and end up wasting a lot so I imagine the waste would be even more with the Umarex unless your shooting 80- pellets each time you load it up.

Maybe your supposed to just leave it charged but Ive never wanted to do that, seems risky.

Pretty significant difference in energy between the two pellets just due to their size. I think the heaviest are about 25gn in .22" and 21gn in .177", but most .177" pellets are around 8gn.

I think it'd just be a bit of nostalgic pleasure to sit in a field plinking with a faux 10/22 :-)

Interesting that they tested noise levels at 97dBa.

Compared to .22LR HV of 130-140dBa and CCI Quiet at 68dBa

I'm going to release my inner killjoy here.

At that price, I doubt it's going to be much better than the crossman 1077

Personally I steer clear of cheep rubbish like that because it's guaranteed to give you the excitement of the purchase, the anticipation of receiving your firearm and the disappointment of it's lousy performance with the added inconvenience of it needing to be treated and stored as a real firearm.

We're easily excited by this stuff because we're so deprived of the cat C style firearms that we really want.

Hopefully I'm proven wrong :thumbsup:

yeah after watching that video... you could almost shoot it inside your house if it had a long hallway... seems like would be good if it wasnt considered a firearm...

I do tend to agree with you, but I personally wouldn't expect much in the way of performance from it, and it's pretty cheap.

The 10/22 was my first rifle so it would be purely for nostalgia for me :-)

I don't really think that these are intended to be used for hunting or anything other than plinking for the fun of it, and for that they look great. I'd put them in the same category as those Red Rider air guns - a step up from a toy but not a serious firearm. Perfect for training or just having some cheap fun. Sort of the same thing as a cheap air pistol. Many hours spent shooting at Jatz crackers and ping pong balls just for the fun of it ......
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but personally I prefer the .30/30 Winchester.

I rang Frontier Arms (Umarex importer) and they say they have no plan to bring the 10-22 to Oz at all. They said I can order one through them, but it'll be many months before I see it.

Maybe get onto Frontier and let them know there's a market for them.

Didn't show last week.
They advised me it was dispatched the Thursday before last, so it's taking it's sweet time trekking down from Brisbane.
