I am going to start off with a spoiler alert for this Field Test Shooting Review and go on record to state that the Umarex NXG APX Multi-pump Pellet-BB Rifle is one of the most accurate pellet air rifles I have ever tested, at least at close up ranges. I would not expect the NXG APX to shoot as accurately at longer ranges simply because it has power limitations but I would expect it to be super accurate up to 50 feet for sure.
