Is there any way to mount a red dot type sight on this pistol?
Not easily. You almost would have to make a mount for it!
Made in China?
No. Made in Spain
Ditto the previous question. Is the Air Venturi V10 Competition Target Pistol different than the old Gamo Compact?
Yes it is. The V10 trigger is adjustable for weight on top of the adjustments that were already present in the Compact. You can take it down to just under 1 lbs.
Air Venturi V10? Is this the Gamo Compact? Exactly what has changed?
The V10 sports an adjustable trigger.
Can this be drilled and taped for a red dot mount?
Well.....since most of the pistol is PLASTIC, I think not. The metal straps that fit under the grip and come over the top of the pistol MIGHT be able to be modified, but no bets on that!
I would be cautious about drilling a hole anywhere on this pistol ?
Does this pistol come with a tin of pellets and a case?
Case yes, pellets no!
Comes with a case, there is not a tin of pellets included sadly.
Yes . Although not mentioned in the text a reviewer says it comes in a case and a tin of pellets.
Does anyone know if the Compact is still made by Gamo in Spain, or farmed out to another maker?
Made by Gamo in Spain
Yes Check out 2nd picture from right
Trigger adjustable? The standard for 10m is .5K or about 1.1# -- is the weight adjustable or just the shoe?
The trigger is adjustable for weight. You can take the trigger safely just under 1 lbs.
Just the shoe
Is there a Left Hand grip available for this?
not at the moment
Why does the specification state that the trigger is adjustable for pull weight but the reviews all state that it is not?
the trigger IS adjustable for weight. This is a new feature built into the V10.
mistake, corrected looks like it
Is a left handed grip available?
