Things I liked:First things first, This is my entry into air guns. I enjoy shooting but finding ammo esp. 22LR is difficult and now expensive. Purchasing my new Gamo has been a great experience. It has all the feel of a 22cal rifle but a tenth of the cost. I'm still experimenting with various pellets. I have found a new hobby with air rifles their accuricy is great (and getting better). Noise is not even a consideration. Most importantly I'm shooting more and enjoying it more. This is a great gun for any hunter, plinker or target shooter. Things I would have changed:The scope that came with this rifle is very good but I have replaced it with a 3x9 x50. What others should know:A friend of mine has the Gamo Silent Cat in .177 cal. His cocking effort is much easier them my Gamo Bone Collector. I know mine has more power and that it is of .22 cal. So my preference would be to have his cocking effort on my rifle
Things I liked:A good place to keep pellets, visually you know how many shots you have readily available, Pellets are kept in good condition Things I would have changed:Add the pellet seating tool. I should have added this when I made my order, it is a choice What others should know:I find pellet pen very useful when walking in the woods or away from my "shooting bench. At my shooting bench I just use pellets from the can. Normally I just drop some pellets into the top of the can.
Things I liked:The new gas piston seems to work as advertised Things I would have changed:Fit and fittings. My rifle can with the shroud cracked and the damper or silencer was free to rotate I don't think it was put together like it should have. What others should know:Very disappointed in Crosman. With all the hype and advertising on this rifle I thought this would have been just about perfect. I have returned this and ordered a different brand
Things I liked:Power, accuracy and stability. This is third Gamo rifle from PA and by far its the best. I always check the screws for tightness, I check the barrel for any small objects or dirt and lastly I check all the moving parts for burs and smoothness. This rifle out of the box was just about perfect Things I would have changed:I'm not big on changes for change sake. I don't see anything I would change, even the included scope works fine. Personally I like to change any included scope with 3x9x50's What others should know:Most of my shooting is targets paper and field. This gun knocks out just about everything out to 30 and 50 yids. This is a .22 cal. and would make a great hunting rifle beyond the 60 yards I shoot.
