Things I liked: Low weight. Predictable trigger although a bit hard to pull. Excellent fully adjustable sights (not only windage and elevation but also WIDTH, very useful). Precharged = no recoil or vibration = remarquable accuracy. It is second to none if you handle it properly (I also own a competition Morini and I this is a fair jugement). I have read comments about a relative lack of the power that are not relevant to me: it is perfect for its purpose: being an ideal entry pistol for ten-meter competition. (Pellets tend to be less stable when approaching sound speed, lowing accuracy).

Things I would have changed: Trigger is not fully adjustable: it only rotates. It could be lighter as previously stated. Grips are nice but could be a problem for small hands.

What others should know: Well worth the money. Mine has shot thousands of pellets and accuracy is still very consistent. Maybe the price will drop in the USA together with the value of the Euro, now close to the USD. The patern of this Gamo pistol is based on the Italian FAS AP 604 legendary model (it has been a 10 meter competition pistol in its time), that you can still find in Europe, although it is quite expensive compared to more modern pistols. Gamo could have found a worse model.
