    HollowPoint replied to a thread Umarex in AirGuns
    Back when the Umarex Octane first went on the market I bought one based on all the marketing hype they had behind them. At the time there was little if any information out on them so I started my own Umarex Octane owners group in hopes of...

    You're probably right; and I too will not be holding my breath BUT, I'm still going to try. I'll still keep looking for specific answers and/or input right from the horse's mouth. HollowPoint

    In my line of work I interact with others of nearly every profession imaginable; from rocket scientists to garbage men. (sanitation engineers) I mention this because I've recently started to ask my customers if they know anyone who works for the...

    I hear what you're saying and it makes sense but, the air gun in question is a Umarex Octane in .22 caliber. I bought it to use as a back yard plinker in order to get some trigger time during those long stretches of time that I can't get to the...

    Wow: This thread went from an explanation of how I messed up when I cut off my air gun suppressor to how I fixed the problem to, "The Sky Is Falling". I've seen this kind of thing happen in other posts and with other subjects. Anything said...

    All I'm seeing in all of this is $200.00 to build a $15.00 suppressor for a gun that cost me a-hundred-and-seventy-bucks including shipping. Even those pre-made AirForce suppressor kits cost 80-something bucks. That doesn't count the several...

    Even a suppressor that is built with weaker materials so as to act as a deterrent to using them on actual firearms can be used on firearms at least once; if it can be successfully mounted to the barrel. The DIY suppressor I have in mind is...

    Yea; this is some of the stuff I'd already read and alluded to. It sounds like the powers that be are deliberately keeping this subject convoluted so as not to have to deal with it directly and to keep potential infractions at a minimum. What...

    I've heard and read differing and even contradictory information similar to that mentioned in the above replies. It's these differing interpretations that makes me leery about making my own; I mean, with respect to air rifles only. If I knew...

    Removing this type of suppressor is the equvelant of destroying it. It's made and installed at the factory in such a way as to keep it from being removed without being destroyed in the process. I may very well be wrong but it's this very reason...

    I stumbled onto a YouTube video the other day of a guy who asked the question, "Do The Suppressors That Come Affixed To Some Of The Modern Air Rifles On The Market Really Work Or Is That Just Marketing Hype?" This same guy removed the plastic...
