Is it possible to greatly reduce the blow-back feature so as to reduce the shaking that occurs whenever this pistol is fired? My PT-85 shakes so badly that the pellets dislodge from the rotary mag and cause it to jam on me. I have tried 2 different rotary mags and
How many shots per tank?
Has anyone else had issues with the Tactical version of this pistol with the faux suppressor? I made the mistake of buying one and expecting a high quality unit. The barrel slops around with more than 1/4 inch of play at the exit end of the barrel.. This renders it WORTHLESS for accuracy. For what they charge for this unit I should have spent a little more and purchased another SIg Sauer MCX
I think that this gamo pt-85 is mainly based onthe Ruger p85 and with some design elements taken from other Ruger "P" series 9mm pistols. Does anyone else know for sure what real steel pistol inspired the design of this gamo pt-85?
I cant be sure from the pics but does this have a fake ejection port like some of the other blowback pellet guns - the sig 250 for example?
The ejection port is cut out on the gamo pt-85, unlike the Sig Sauer p250.
The velocity cited is with 4.1 gr ammo. If I'm using something higher, say 7.9 gr, how big a drop in velocity should I expect? 50 fps? more?
can you use BB's in this gun
rifled barrels are for pellets only. steel bbs wear the barrels too much.
Not an answer, but if it has a rotary mag, how can it be designed for pellets only? Technically if the BB fits why wouldn't it fire? Honestly curious.
Designed for pellets only.
Has anyone used a chrony to know how fast the pt85 shoots regular 7-8grain pellets?
Is the barrel extension available extra so I could turn my regular pt85 into the tactical model?
what is the purpose of the screw on the rear sight mount
When unscrewing it u can take off the slide and expose the mechanism in case u want to clean it. I doubt that it needs lubrication On every part
What decent paddle holster will fit this? I like to carry it around the yard sometimes for easy access when the chipmunks are a problem. It doesn't fit any of my 1911&Rail or springfield xd40 serpa holsters. What real gun would it be the same size of holster wise?
You would need to get a generic style auto holster for it. We do not recommend this gun for hunting as it has too slow velocity.
can you mount a red dot even with extra mounts?
Is this gun the same as the pt-85 tactical without all the attachments?
Yes, but this one doesn't have the threaded straw barrel.
what is the Gamo PT-85 made of metal or plastic
A good mixture of both, 1 1/2 pounds.
does the blowback advance the next pellet so the trigger only fires the pellet and does not advance the pellet?
yes, the trigger advances the next pellet
No, the pistol uses the mag in a way more similar to a revolver.
