By Michael from USA on 2013-03-18 13:13:49Things I liked:Light weight, accurate, powerful, reasonable price.
Things I would have changed:Better scope. One piece scope mount. Nicer way to attach a sling would be great, and if it's going to be sold as a quiet rifle make it quiet. Mines loader than my older Gamo shadow 1000, and my Hunter 220.
What others should know:If you need a quiet airgun, this may not be for you. As I said, it's louder than my older gamo rifles, and my Benjamin trail np. If noise isn't a problem you'll like this one. Accuracy has been very good with every pellet I've tried so far, gamo hunters, magnums, master points, crosman premiers, Benjamin domed, and pointed pellets. The gamo magnums, and master points hit a little to the left of point of aim but still hold niece groups. I've got about 600 rounds through this rifle and so far all groups at 20 yard can be covered with a quarter, with the exception of the occasional flier. Sometimes I can even get dime sized groups. All and all this is a very good rifle. But don't buy thinking its quiet.

By Lonnie from USA on 2013-07-14 19:07:26Things I liked:The balance of the gun and feel of the stock, the new trigger is way better then the old style Gamo triggers!
Things I would have changed:The 11mm dovetail mount on a nitro piston rifle is the stupidest thing ever.
What others should know:You should know that this rifle looks and feels amazing but will give you nothing but frustration! You want it to work so bad but the I had a 4 bolt 1 pc mount on this rail with a 5th bolt (vertical pin going into receiver) and after 40 shots I had to pull the scope and mount off and there was slippage, my mounts vertical stop pin threads were damaged when it slipped back, the pin is bent a few more shots it would have sheered off, my rifles receiver has physical damage from the pin and force of the guns push back the hole is out of round. Now I'm very upset I have damage to a new mount and also to my rifle, I want all buyers of nitro piston rifles to know that when it comes to the power of these rifles you can't stop scope creep without a solid weaver rail. I have a Gamo CFX Spring and once I bought a solid 1 pc mount there was no slippage with 10 years of shooting it, but when you put a nitro piston together will 11mm rails you are asking for frustration and disappointment.
