Wow, wow wowey, wow, wow, wow! Have I acquired one thing for you in the present day! I noticed all these improbable targets posted to Half 2 of this report by our readers, however I nonetheless didn’t consider it. However, it’s all true! The Umarex Legends Cowboy Lever Motion BB gun is tremendous correct. And it cycles completely each time.

The check

Being a doubting Thomas, I made a decision to check at the usual BB-gun distance of 5 meters, even after seeing all these excellent targets. Apart from, if it’s actually that correct, may it even come near the Daisy Avanti Champion 499? If it examined out I might all the time run one other check at a better distance. Nicely — I assume I’ll, as a result of this one shouldn’t be going again to Pyramyd Air. I solely shot BBs in the present day as a result of I wish to give pellets a radical exercise of their very own.

I shot from a seated place utilizing a UTG Monopod as a relaxation. The teams had been 10 pictures every, which gave me the chance to load and hearth 10 cartridges from the gun. Since I believe the shot rely is round 35-40 pictures, I shot solely 30 after which modified CO2 cartridges. Let’s get began.

Umarex Precision Metal BBs

The primary BB I attempted was the Umarex Precision Metal BB. A reader had commented they had been essentially the most correct for him and. by golly, they had been the identical for me! Ten BBs went into one gap that measures 0.212-inches between facilities of the 2 holes farthest aside at 5 meters. The final time I noticed 10 BBs in a gaggle this small they had been shot from my 499!

Ten Umarex BBs went into 0.212-inches at 5 meters. That is the perfect group of the check and may problem a 499!


I discussed in Half 2 {that a} lever motion hundreds onerous, and this one isn’t any exception. However loading doesn’t get more durable as extra shells are loaded. Cartridge quantity 10 hundreds no more durable than cartridge one.

Hornady Black Diamond

The second BB examined was the Hornady Black Diamond. I anticipated this one to be the perfect, however as a reader stated, it wasn’t. It’s superb, with 10 BBs going into 0.383-inches at 5 meters, however inferior to the Umarex BB.

Avanti Precision Floor Shot

Since this BB gun is so correct I assumed it would do greatest with Avanti Precision Floor Shot that the Daisy 499 makes use of. So I shot a gaggle with them. Ten BBs made a 0.575-inch group at 5 meters. That’s nonetheless a really small group for a BB gun, however it’s already been overwhelmed by two premium BBs.

Sensible Shot

Subsequent up had been Air Venturi Sensible Shot lead BBs. This gun is so highly effective that these BBs make good sense, of they’re correct. And, they’re! Ten of them made a 5-meter group that measures 0.499-inches between facilities.

Ten lead Sensible Shot BBs made this 0.499-inch group at 5 meters. That is one other nice group.

Mud Devils

The final BB I examined was the frangible Mud Satan from Air Venturi. They didn’t do in addition to all the remaining. Ten went into 1.064-inches at 5 meters. That’s not a nasty group for many BB weapons, however for this Cowboy Lever Motion gun it’s about 3-Four occasions bigger than the remaining.

This BB gun is essentially the most correct one I’ve shot, apart from a Daisy 499. And this one might truly supply that BB gun some competitors! Umarex is to be counseled for bringing out a super-realistic lever motion BB gun lookalike that has no competitors. This one is a hammer and each goal is a nail!

I do know I’m known as The Nice Enabler as a result of I trigger lots of you to spend more cash than you must on airguns, however when one thing is that this good, I gotta be me! It is best to know by now that I’m going to inform you the reality both method it seems. However don’tcha adore it when it seems like this? I do!


Subsequent I’m going to again up and shoot pellets. After that I’m going to shoot BBs from a better distance. Like I stated — this gun shouldn’t be going again to Pyramyd Air!
