Things I liked: The fact that I bought it from Pyramyd Air
Things I would have changed: I must have gotten caught in the GAMO marketing hype somewhere. I wanted to buy a new air rifle i could plink around the house, pest control, and hunt with. I was pretty sure this was the rifle. The inconsistent reviews should have been enough to send me on my way, but I refused. In fact, I almost became determined to figure out what the other people were doing wrong. I un-boxed this rifle and took it out back to use the iron sights. The rifle is very light. The cocking is smooth. There was a bit of a scratching sound when closing the barrel. Anyhow iron sights worked ok I did have to adjust them quite a bit off center. Then i proceeded to mount the scope. I applied loctite to every single screw and went to take a few shots the next day. First 2 were near each other, then I couldn't hit squat at 15 yrds let alone 30. Took the scope off, the recoil pin pushed through the aluminum rail, which was as robust as a beer can. So I removed the rail and mounted the scope to the gun. Same issues. Long story short.. I fired 300+ rounds through this gun and no matter what I did it flat out stunk. It was hard to keep it on paper at 30 yards. Now, I suspect a lot of my troubles were from the scope. I wanted to be happy with it so badly but I just wasn't. Fortunately I purchased from Pyramid air. They are close by so shipping is next day!
What others should know: I sent this back to them no questions asked. I paid $9 more for the RWS Diana 34 Panther striker combo. I did this as opposed to spending $80+ to gamble; for a scope with OA for something I'm not happy with. Ill write a review of it, couldn't be happier.
Things I liked: QUALITY!!
Things I would have changed: Heavy(Awesome german quality) so some sling mounts would be nice.
What others should know: WOW!! I sent back my gamo silent stalker whisper for this rifle. One of the best things I've done in a long time! This rifle is downright robust. The quality is superb for the price point. The trigger is 10x better than the much more flexible and seemingly endless creeping of the GAMO smooth action trigger. Mine came with a Tech Force 3-9x32mm scope and UTG rail and I think hawke rings. WOW. I mounted the scope and I knew I was no longer working with the poor quality of the gamo rails/barrel dovetail. The accuracy of this gun can't be describe for the money!! Perfect for what I wanted it for. Plinking, Pest control, and hunting!! I take it everywhere!
