Things I liked:I liked the look, weight and feel of this gun. Had a nice balance to it. If you didn't know you had a BB pistol in your hand, you would look for some rounds to load it. Things I would have changed:When I first received my Makarov, the forward section of the trigger guard would drop down. Never seen or have had this happen to me before on any air/firearm before. After searching the entire manual, there was no mention of anything that would come close in explaining this problem. I called and emailed Pyramydair several times for an explaination, but never received any response. I guess they were too busy. Anyway, everything else I had ever received from them I have had no problem and experienced good value. Just ashame that we could not have worked this out. I really wanted to keep that gun, but not under those circumstances. What others should know:I never fired it because it appeared to be broken.
Things I liked:Just received this .22 cal version and I immediately purchased a 9x50 scope w/rangefinder. I also purchased four differeent types of .22 pellets with varing weights. I like the balanced weight of 9 lbs and the extra speed loaders that come with it plus makes reloading quick & easy when you need the extra firepower. Tomorrow I sight in the rifle. Things I would have changed:Nothing, this is an awesome looking weapon that I'm sure I will be proud to own. What others should know:I'll get back on this with you later.
Things I liked:What I liked the most was the looks and feel of this .50 cal. It has a nice carry feel to it (if you like to carry a rifle with some heft to it) and I first used a 300 gr pellet on the high power setting using the hard irons (no scope). I first used paper targets at 250 feet and no problem with head shots with a few chest shots. I then mounted a Tasco 3-9 x 50mm scope with a wide angle field of view. At first the scope caused me to hit the ground and missing the target. Needs more adjusting and will get back on this later with you. Things I would have changed:Better "O" rings where you slide the sleeve back on the breech. On my first 9 rounds of 300 gr. pellets both rubber "O" rings broke and had to send into Venturi for replacement repairs of the "O" rings. So far I haven't used any other size pellet weights but will buy some lighter weights to see how this improves accuracy and I think that there may be some barrel droop but not sure yet.
Sure would be nice to get this in semi-auto.
Things I liked:As compared to a reg shotgun, mine is pretty quiet. Although the price is way too high for only 25 rounds. About same cost for reg 12 ga. shot shells. It's a shame that Gamo gauges us on price. They should think about the next sale... or not. Things I would have changed:price! Or at least provide at least 50 rounds per box for this price. What others should know:It's a pretty straight shooter to about 30 yards.
Things I liked:I placed an order for the Air Venturi Carbon Fiber Air Tank & Fill Station, 4500 PSI, 90 Cu In. Once received I noticed that this setup was good only with a foster connection, which I do not have for either of my two pcp's. I talked with Tyler and he was great about the quick-disconnect I needed to make my life easier on refills. Thanks Tyler! Once received, I'll let you guys know on how well they work. Things I would have changed:nothing yet What others should know:make sure that when you order tanks, etc. that CS knows what you want to do and make sure you get everything necessary the first time, paying shipping only once.
Things I liked:Although this is my first review of this rifle, I did purchase this back in 2012. It is loud, but I like loud guns. However after the fifth shout the rubber rings on the loading breach broke. I sent it to air venturi for repairs and so far everything works as designed. What I found disappointing about this rifle is the droop on the barrel. The machine work on this barrel is second rate. I'm still looking for the right scope for this rifle, and as you may can tell, I havent shoot it often enough to work out all the kinks. Things I would have changed:design a magazine to make it a repeater What others should know:woodwork is nice but the stamped receiver could be made better and the cocking hammer should be more smoother. It almost feels like cocking a 250 - lb crossbow.
Things I liked:The appearance of my .50 cal Sniper is awesome since I did add a varity of options like a 1000 lumens light, red dot laser, scope, bipod, a M-60 carry handle, bi-pod and a .50 cal dummy mag. Things I would have changed:The price. It's not cheap. Also, more kit remodels for this rifle like a butt stock change-out (M-249 or something simular look alike) and a fore arm upgrade. What others should know:I first used so far a 185 grain hollow point pellet. I don't know if it was the dia. of the pellet or the side lever, but when pushing the lever forward to seat the pellet within the breech it was a little difficult. It dragged a little bit. Maybe the will resolve itself on it's own after a few more round through it.
