By Customer from USA on 2010-01-23 06:49:44Things I liked:The stock looks great & the bull barrel adds to the looks of this air rifle. It is light and can be taken in the field without worry because of durable materials used on it. Power is spot on for any pest bird and most fur covered pest as long as you keep shots within range and hit the sweet spot.
Things I would have changed:The Scope and the trigger. I upgraded both on mine and it took this rifle from OK to Great. I will also add the nitro piston to this from PA when I get a chance.
What others should know:This is a good rifle but a few upgrades can make all the difference. First GRT III trigger, a very easy and cheap install. Second upgrade the scope to something that can handle the recoil. Third use lock tight. Then skip the PBA ammo and try some of the quality pellets Mine works very well with predator and redfire pellets on pests. Match pellets are great (RWS) inside 20 yds. Heavy round nose pellets are better for longer ranges ( JSB 10.2 grain & Gamo Rocket 9.6 grain). This rifle will take a few hundred rounds to settle in and get best accuracy. I clean the barrel every few hundred shots or so and the accuracy has been excellent. I can keep shots inside a quarter at 20 yards and can hit a 16 oz plastic bottle at 50 yards every time as lonng as wind is calm. I do recommend this rifle. The small upgrades make this an awesome choice.

By shafferfarm from USA on 2007-09-04 15:47:42Things I liked:Looks great. Very good trigger.
Things I would have changed:make it accurate. Build a good pellet rifle. The first one failed after about 250 Raptor pellets through it. After paying $30+ to ship it back to Gamo and another $10 for them to ship it back to me the replacement rifle was found to have the barrel lose. I would give anything to get my money back on this piece of crap. I am done buying Gamo air rifles.
What others should know:Do not buy this rifle! For the money it cost to purchase this rifle you can pick something else much better I guarantee is better.
