Things I liked: This is my first airgun. And im glad it was because its a pretty nice rifle. First I got this for shooting squirrels in my backyard. My dad said you cant kill a squirrel with a air rifle. Well I proved him wrong. The second day after I got the gun I got 4 squirrels in ONE shot. And those shots were not headshots! I used Gamo Magnum rounds. Great gun great for the price great everything.

Things I would have changed: Make sure to install your scope stop or your scope and your rail will inch back, causing alot of frustration. Also some of the manuals were in Spanish.

What others should know: If you were thinking of shooting this gun in your backyard like me, go ahead. This gun is pretty quiet but not that quiet. Ive been shooting this air rifle everyday and I dont here complaints. Great gun for the money buy it if you like shooting targets or varmints!

    Things I liked: Light, well-balanced, very accurate after break-in. This is a great gun for the cash! Lotsa fun too. I've picked-off many a squirrel with this thing and they just drop at 20 yards.

    Things I would have changed: The breakbarrel screw seems to need to be tightened every 500 shots or so- nothing a little lock-tite can't fix. The scope rings have loosened up top on one occaision but haven't had any problems since. Despite much ridicule on the Gamo trigger mine isn't half-bad.

    What others should know: Pyramydair kicked-ass on this one! Customer Service was great and very informative. Got here alot quicker than I thought it would too- and on a saturday?! Gamo needs to come clean on their Raptors. This one likes the Crossman Premier Domes and Hollowpoints! I get great groups at 30 yards using these very pellets. Now the Raptors are a bit of a different ballgame with this rifle as with ANY rifle. They like to fly both left and right of a 'quarter' sized target at 30 yards. The Premier Domes seem to have greater penetration! With the slight velocity loss involved in heavier pellets they're well worth it on this one. I've also shot JSB Predator UltraShock Hollowpoints through this thing and they mushroom-out when they hit- good for all kinds of small game! This is an all-around fun shooter and I'd recommend it to anyone!
