Umarex Origin PCP Air Rifle #118


Umarex Origin PCP Air Rifle

Normally we’d publish our review of the Umarex Origin PCP air rifle in one post, but this product is quite new we wanted to give you guys a thorough introduction.

This is because the HAM team is convinced that this is a game changing product that will revolutionize the entry level PCP market.



Value For Money

The first thing you need to know about the Umarex Origin PCP air rifle is it’s a clear HAM Gold Award winner. It is great value for money because it offers outstanding value.

At an MSRP of $349.99, you get a ten shot, shrouded, sidelever air rifle, along with a dedicated HPA hand pump. When we look at price/performance/features, it’s the clear market leader at the present time.

You’ll have to add a scope and some pellets to make it a decent PCP air rifle.

Speed And Accuracy

The Umarex Origin PCP Air Rifle tested by HAM delivered an amazing 60 shots, hitting 28.31 Ft/Lbs. That’s an average of 944 FPS. Don’t forget that’s a.22 caliber-only air rifle.


When we tested the accuracy of the Origin, we were amazed by its ability to consistently group 10 shots inside a Quarter at 25 Yards, straight out of the box. These results were produced using a Leapers Bugbuster scope and JSB Jumbo 15.89 Grain pellets.

That’s very acceptable for the gun’s intended target market.

Trigger And Cocking Effort

The Umarex Origin PCP air rifle tested by HAM had an average trigger pull weight of 2 pounds, 5 ounces. Out-of-the-box, the trigger wasn’t exactly in the “glass break” class.

It’s good for its price but it’s not perfect. In addition to the main firing pin adjustment screws, you should also adjust the trigger overtravel as required for your particular gun and shooting conditions.

There are several tools that can be used to adjust the action of a weapon, and these are only accessible from underneath the weapon using Allen wrenches. This is a manual safety that is easy to use and access.


The sidelever action is easy to operate and a definite step forward from the bolt actions that are typically fitted to most air rifles in this price range. Note that we added O rings to the test gun’s sidelever.

The operating mechanism of the M-Powered air rifle is slightly different from that of a traditional spring powered rifle. While the action may feel more “muddy” in operation compared to a spring powered rifle, it was easy to operate and the trigger pull is excellent.

The real comparison is that it’s waaaaay ahead of the bolt action you’d expect to find on other PCPs at this price range for smoothness and ease-of-use.

Comparison To Makes Claims

Umarex claims that the Origin is different from other pump guns because it includes patented technology that reduces the number of pumps required to fill the tank gun’s HPA tank to full pressure.

This is definitely true. With the hand pump, you can easily get it full of water, and then you’ll see how this little gadget can keep you hydrated. It’s definitely possible to fill to the maximum 3,625 PSI pressure without any problems.

That’s an amazing claim, and it matches what we’ve experienced when we’ve tested a similar product, namely the Remington R7L1A1. We recorded 1,090 fps using 9.7 Grain Gamo Raptor Platinum lead-free pellets. Right on the money!


There were two areas that we had trouble with the company’s claims for the Umarex Origin PCP air rifle. If you’re a fitness buff who wants to add muscle and increase your strength, you have to add high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to your workout.

That gave us an average of 865 fps using the same Crosman 14.3 Grain pellets we used for the comprehensive shootdown test. The average shot down test for the 5D Mark III is 944 FPS over 60 shots.

It’s obvious from the 13 shots that the Umarex Origin PCP air rifle delivers good power. However, its power level isn’t the highest possible in the entire range.


A typical, unregulated PCP air rifle exhibits a remarkable shot curve. This is a great practical benefit for anyone shooting this gun.

Nosie Level

The Umarex Origin PCP has a built-in barrel shroud that greatly reduces the recoil of the gun. HAM found that this gun was great for taking small game. However, there was one aspect to shooting the Origin that I did not like.

That’s the high-pitched “twang” you hear when you shoot a basketball or a baseball. A twang is a characteristic “tick,” or a sound that’s heard as air passes through an instrument. The shootdown tests showed that this airplane was a serious threat, so it needed to be taken into custody.


I’m guessing the sound comes from the “Ever Pressure” tank system, which gives such benefits in filling the Origin. It’s almost certainly inherent in the design. With regular use, you’ll probably not notice—or at least accept—it. 

Sights And Scope

There’s nothing to say here, but if you have a Picatinny scope, it’s an easy upgrade. Unlike spring/piston air rifles, any scope can be used on a rifle with minimal recoil. We mounted a Leapers UTG Bugbuster 3-12×32 Bugbuster scope for HAM testing. They went well together.


Umarex’s Origin is well balanced in the hand and very comfortable to shoot. It wasn’t that easy to get a nice cheek weld against the stock’s raised comb, but you did it. The ability to perform practical tests in the field is the biggest contributor to practical accuracy.


With the Leapers UTG Bugbuster scope mounted, the test gun weighed-in at just 7 pounds and 6 ounces. The magazines are also easy to load. They’re lightweight and easy to carry around, making it ideal for hunting, fishing, hiking or just hanging

So when you’re out and about, you know the gun will not fire even if the magazine is empty. It is indeed possible to double-feed the Origin if you’re not paying attention. That’s true with the overwhelming majority of PCP air rifles, and so shouldn’t count against them.

Appearance And Finish

This is the perfect PCP rifle. It shoots well, has a nice feel in the hand and looks good. I love the harmonious and streamlined design of this product. I think it would be an ideal choice for a lot of people.


All metal and synthetic parts are finished well. This is a quality casting. The mold lines are very noticeable, but they don’t affect the overall appearance. But this is a great deal for this price. It’s a par for the course at this price.

Buying And Owning

This is the best airgun to shoot off the shelf. The airgun has been engineered to be the most reliable. This makes it easy to buy. There are no complexities that could deter customers from buying and dealers from selling PPC airguns.

This makes it more likely that the Origin will be the first PCP air rifle to become really widely available in big box sporting goods stores. The hand pump is included for free with every gun, and it should last for at least a year.

Some pumps have spare parts, tools and instructions that encourage “handy” owners to repair the pump themselves in the event of malfunction.
