So does anybody have their hands on a umarex trevox pistol yet? Thoughts on it and would it have enough power for squirrels out to say 20 yards?

Darin,

Got my Trevox mid-summer and have been busy with break-ins, pellet selections, practicing and yes, some Accurizing!

Now that I've caught my breath and have got a good feel for the Trevox (and others), posted my 1st thoughts HERE, follow ups HERE, and comments on my recent trigger work to the Trevox, HERE !

Not sure if the Trevox would carry enough energy for squirrels out to 20yds? I've not shot outside with it yet, just in my indoor workshop range. However, it handles well, FO sights are good and fit and finish is also good. After yesterdays trigger work, finding it very accurate and easy to cock and load!

Hope this info isn't too late for you, but being new to air gunning, took my time to try things out and develop the little knowledge I have!

Old thread. Sorry to post so recent...   i have one and will guarantee it will not take out a squirrel no where near 20 yards....  as silly as it sounds, the Trevox is a very bad pistol, and very underpowered from my experience, i do not have a chronograph but this is the only arm i own that cant even crack a possums skull at point blank...



Very easily cocked, my cousins 7yo and 8yo love it because its "easy/fast" to cock but the pistol wieghts a ton to them.

Accuracy and enough power. A variety of these big air pistols in springer/rammer from China have been producing as much to a bit less power than the P1/HW45, P5/5G
Magnum, LP8 Magnum. Those pistols when 'healthy' in .177 produce about 5-5.5 FPE at the muzzle. Those big Turkish springer/rammer pistols when 'healthy' in .177
can go 6ish to 7ish FPE. A Crosman 1377 'healthy' on 10 pumps will go 5ish to 6ish FPE at the muzzle.
One of the problems so many guys miss on the springer/rammer pistols (even new out of the box) is a breech seal leak. A simple shimming and/or o-ring or shaped
seal replacement will add anywhere from 20 to over 100 fps MV!

A airgun shooting a domed/pointed .177 pellet at 5 FPE at the muzzle can kill a squirrel at 60 feet with a solid head shot (not a steep angled graze or smack on the
side of the snout). Most AG guys I'd say prefer at least a couple more FPE than 5 at the muzzle for squirrel. Some that aren't real AG knowledgable think all AG hunting
and pesting starts at 20 FPE and an airgun that costs at least $700 or more. And then there's the stories of big fox squirrels that just wouldn't go down after several
hits with .22 LR rimfire! LOL Those guys best stick to shotguns! ACCURACY and enough power.

No air leaks, tissue test on the breech shows no sign of it.


I did a small test yesterday between my "out the box" 1377, modded 2240, and threw the trevox in for comparison since it seems under powered.



Excerpt from my other thread:
Quote
Tested again but at 70 feet, same 6.4g and a new 650 page phone book.

1377 pumped 10 times - 400~ pages and 320~ head deep.

2240 after i took 10 shots from initial 1200psi - still clean through the book with 3 shots.

Trevox.... ripped around 70~ pages and only one pellet stuck into the book, the other two dropped...


That test is what confirmed my thoughts....
Plus i already had that close quarter encounter with a possum and it seems to just "flick" em instead of any harm.


Edit: and the actual barrel is about 5-6" so that may play a big roll.

My Trevox will put a Crosman premier 7.9 threw both sides of a tin can at 11 yards and punch clean holes.  Still not a 20 yard Squirrel gun but has been fun in the back yard.

Il give a soup can a test tomorrow. Doubt il see the same results :( but i can only try.


This is a fun/play gun, but it is nothing worth the original list price. 70$ i got it on sale at a perfect time and caught it for 38$ shipped free, so im not too puffy about its discrepancy. Was going to get a benjamin trail np2 or np1 pistol, but seen this cheaper at that time, i wanted a break barrel pistol.



If anyone cares to read this old thread i revived, tomorow il update after i shoot at some soup cans.

Just noticed on the german gate a reported 498 feet per sec with jsb 8.4 gr out of a LP8. I think that is about what I get out of the trevox.  I am shooting open sights so I can not compair accuracy.  I do think the LP8 has it in the looks department.
