Things I liked:good rifle for the money
Things I would have changed:could use a better scope and open sights.
Things I liked:On which version? I originally purchased a Big Cat 1200 from WAL-MART. It was an older model, with a metal trigger. The trigger was terrible. I ordered two GRT triggers, thinking I'd purchase a second Big Cat and convert them to the the better trigger. This purchase from Pyramyd Air was the second of the two Big Cats I purchased. This second Bog Cat came with a plastic trigger, negating the use of the GRT after-market trigger. I sold this Big Cat. My comments here in no way reflect any ill feelings toward Pyramyd Air. I think Pyramyd Air is a quality distributor and I have been purchasing all of my pellet gun supplies (though not really all that much) from them.
Things I would have changed:Gamo should go back to a hi-quality metal trigger, such as the SAT trigger as a stock option! Provide a real steel barrel. Add workable sholder-strap points like the Hatsan 125 sniper.
What others should know:The older of the of the Big Cats I purchased only lasted about 3,000 rounds and then the spring broke. No, I did not fire the thing while the barrell was in the open breach position! I was dissipointed with this failure. I was going to put a gas-spring in the thing but though I would try a different make because Gamo seens to be moving toward cheaper manufacturing processes. I chose a Hatsan 125 sniper in .177. I'll probably be purchasing a Hatsan 125 sniper in the .22 caliber in the not-too-distant future. I'll never go back to Gamo. My Beeman dual caliber/dual barrel pellet rifle out performs Gamo and even being a bottom-of-the-line pellet rifle, Beeman craftsmanship is on-par with the Hatsan 125 Sniper, leaving Gamo eating Beeman's trail of dust...
Things I liked:I bought the Gamo Big Cat 1250 from Big-5 before I discovered PyramydAir.com. You get a lot of air rifle for the price, including scope and mounting rings. Very accurate once you get past the first 200 shots and once you start to use the proper pellets (JSB Match Exact, 8.44 gr) (thanks to information that I read here). The Gamo Big Cat 1250 is a very powerful air rifle.
Things I would have changed:The stock trigger sucks. I bought a CharlieDaTuna GRT4G aftermarket trigger after the first week. The butt pad was too thick so I cut it in half using a hacksaw and finished the pad with a Dremel. It is just right now.
What others should know:This springer is a little louder than I thought it would be and I can't help but wonder how it will shoot with the optional nitro piston ($100 upgrade). The barrel was filthy dirty but cleaned up nicely with a swab soaked in CRC Lectra-Motive Electric Parts Cleaner. Read up on cleaning procedures for air rifles and the dangers of using oil. No need to go anywhere else than www.pyramydair.com for your airgun needs. THANKS PyramidAir!
