Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is not too bad, I would not say it's overly light but not on the heavy side either. Essentially it has a single action trigger since you need to pre-charge the bolt to engage the trigger. There is a little bit of take-up and then a fairly noticeable break point where you will feel the most trigger weight right before it releases.

Accuracy: So far I have not performed my Field Test Shooting review for the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle so I do not have any velocity or accuracy information to share at this point. I do plan on making that Shooting video Review this week so stay posted for that one.

Build Quality: The Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is not going to be one of your highest quality airguns but it does get the job done and feels solid enough with all the working parts feeling tight and secure. Most of the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is plastic, even the bolt and trigger but you will find more metal inside where it counts like the inner steel barrel and the outer steel barrel shroud. The stock is plastic and that's OK, I do like the addition of the rubber butt pad and cheek rest as they work well and help to make the Umarex Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle feel comfortable to hold in position and shoot.

Realism: Since the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is not a replica, realism is not really a factor here but it does look like a gun so treat it as if it was a real gun since most people will not know the difference. Always transport and store any airgun safely and discreetly.

Pros:

  • Low cost air rifle with a lot of features.

  • Iron sights actually look really usable with the fiber optic red dot up front.

  • Comes with an 4x15 optical sight which should help with accuracy at longer ranges.

  • Super easy to pump even when getting close to the 10 pump max.

  • Built in auto safety.

  • Stock and cheek rest position feel really good.

  • Choice of shooting pellets or BB’s.

  • Trigger feels pretty good, not too heavy.

  • Mostly an ambidextrous design so good for lefties too.

  • Has a rifled barrel.

  • Overall a good looking air rifle.

Cons:

  • Mostly plastic, not the highest quality build.

  • Included 4x15 scope is super low budget but will work till you can upgrade it down the road.

Comments:
I really hope the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle shoots well as it is kind of a cool air rifle with a lot of features at a low price tag and would make a great little target and maybe even small pest air rifle if it turns out to be accurate and hit that near 500 fps mark with pellets. The Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is not going to win any quality or design awards but from a usability stand point it works well and feels good to hold and shoot, the rear stock and cheek rest are in a perfect piston for me and this is a pretty small airgun overal. Personally I would invest in an upgraded scope, something like the Walther 4x32 would be perfect and not too expensive.

The Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is available in both the Stand Alone Air Rifle and Kit Version that comes with the addition of safety glasses, targets and ammo.
