Things I liked:Good balance, goos desighn Things I would have changed:Too much plastic. Make the receiver out of metal and grooved for optics.
A multi shot strip magazine would also be nice What others should know:Buy lots of co2 cart. and pellets. you nwont be able to put it down
Things I liked:Everything, except the stock. I like wood, not plastic.
While I am not satisfied with the scope, its operable, but not the best Things I would have changed:Furnish it without the scope. While I have no problem with the furnished scope,I would like to see it and others sold with out the scope, and let me choose. Many of the customer reports blame the furnished scope, when its really not the basic reason for the problem What others should know:I have about a dozen or more 177's,I find the Gamo is the best bang for the buck. I have never got a sour Gamo, of course I have never got a sour RWS. Cant say the same for Crosman
Things I liked:The weaver scope mount. I think all gas and spring piston gut should have the weaver mount rail. While furnished scopes are not very well rated, I have had no problems with the dozen or so guns that I have. But I think this gun ( and all of them) should be sold without a scope and let the buyer decide. I am very well satisfied with this gun but I do intent to upgrade the scope. Im 81 and cant use the open sights, so a scope is necessary Things I would have changed:I favor wood. I would like to see a choice of wood or plastic stock, with a rubber recoil pad, just for looks. What others should know:I havnt shot this gun much, maybe 500 times. The cocking action seems smooth, the cocking force is OK.
With my rifle, it requires a pellet (22) seater. I cannot get a pellet to seat below flush with my fingers or thumb (Crossman hollow points).I made a seater out of a tooth brush handle and it seats constantly at the same depth. The gun is very accurate at 10 and 20 yards, but is loud with a metal pellet trap. Gets the neighbors attention
