    Those are the very two i'm choosing between for now if i decide to go pc this summer.
    More shots on the gauntlet, but i do like the weight on the urban for carrying while hunting.

    That was a good side by side review, thanks for posting the link.

    I watched the video too, both rifles appear good, the length of the urban appeals to me, the shot count of the gauntlet appeals to me.

    The salesmen who made the video claim the triggers are good, but that information comes from salesmen.

    After buying a wildfire because it was affordable, I am willing to spend more than 300 bucks to get a rifle that meets my desires. For an all-around shooter in .22.

    I want a two stage trigger that is crisp, around 2 1/2 lbs.
    The ability to mount medium to large optic far enough forward to see through when shooting prone.
    Has a sling attachment up front for position shooting.
    Length of pull suited to my body size, 6' 2".
    A rifle that fills with a foster fitting instead of a probe.
    50 shot count or more per fill.
    Possibly a bullpup design for unobtrusive semi-urban pesting.
    Semi-auto would be nice, but would settle for a side leaver.

    Got lots of time to shop while saving up enough money to buy such a rifle.
    To lazy to chase arrows.

    The only thing i have against the urban(without actually shooting it) are the mags. cost $50.00 each and evidently no single shot tray available for them now.
    That's got me leaning toward the gauntlet and the higher shot count.
    as far as these two are concerned.

    Still....either would do for what i would be doing lol.

    Now throw the Benjamin Fortitude into the mix.

    Yep, seems like a new one to check out every other day lately lol.
    Good times to get into airgunning.

    I've been eyeing the big bores again too(357 to 50 cal.). I like the idea of shooting big roundballs with nothing but air!

    Well I have shoot many a RB with air . And I am done with them I hope . Look up the BC and drift . And then try and imagine how hard it is to get the cut in the same location while loading [ unless you buy swag RB ]. And then think of how much accuracy is lost when you can not get the cut in the same spot beyond 50 yards . And it is still a thorn at closer range . Marvin
