Recoil Reducing Rail maximizes scope lifespan with 99.9% recoil compensation
Pest elimination is one of the major reasons many people buy powerful airguns such as the Gamo Big Cat 1400. You can take mice, rats, rabbits, squirrels, small pest birds and more with this air rifle.
Especially nice is the SAT trigger, which has two stages and is so nice that you'll never have to replace it with any aftermarket versions.
The SWA recoil pad doesn't eliminate recoil, but it does stop most of it from getting through to your shoulder. Spring-piston guns don't have a huge amount of recoil to start with...just enough for you to notice. However, if you're shooting a lot, you'll start to feel that recoil more and more and could end up with a sore shoulder. The SWA will take away a good bit of the bounce and make it more pleasant to stay on the range all day.
In between hunting (or if you don't hunt at all), use this air gun to shoot paper targets, spinners, tin cans, dirt clods, dandelions and more! It's an all-purpose shooter that may end up being your go-to gun for fun and hunting.

Things I liked: Stock nice fit ,trigger I liked , weight and balanced nicely , over all looks VERY NICE
Things I would have changed: Scope don't be afraid to spend some $ for this rifle it's worth it (Leaper UTG 6x24 x50) will update in spring as to how this works
What others should know: RWS Meisterkugleln 8.2gr work VERY well shoot the center of a toonie out at 200ft
Things I liked: Fit me very well, VERY powerful, didn't mind trigger, have ti ranged in at 180-200ft and is consistent and accurate
Things I would have changed: Upgraded scope
What others should know: RWS Meisterkugeln pellets work VERY well took center of a toonie out at 200ft make sure you have a good back stop ie; thick metal
Things I liked: Stock design is comfy, easy to get a natural hold on. Very bench friendly. Could downsize the pistol grip a little, though. I've got big paws, and it feels large to me. Trigger feel is surprisingly nice, very smooth, easy to "slow smooth squeeze".
Things I would have changed: Scope provided makes a better paperweight than a sighting device. Reticle is blurry, focus constantly changes. To be expected, it's worth what you paid for it. Trigger is nice, but needs to be metal to feel perfect. Can feel flex as you squeeze. Gamo PBA pellets that it comes with are not worth shooting, my 20ga. shotgun patterns better with birdshot than this does with PBA's. They are too light, too fast... they are supersonic out of this powerplant, and that drastically affects stability with a projectile this light. Barrel apparently needs more "meat"... maybe try all steel instead of plastic coated? I know it's not a $400 piece, but a bent barrel??? Really??? C'mon, Gamo... Everyone please note, I did not buy this from Pyramid, I bought it locally due to a screamin' end of year sale. Please do not allow this to reflect negatively on Pyramid Air.
What others should know: K, here's the deal... the gun I purchased (not from Pyramid) feels great, shoots nice, has plenty of power, but will not hit the broad side of a barn. The barrel has a visible slope down when looking down the gun. At first I thought it was just the poly coating and not the barrel itself, but I was wrong. I tried two different scopes, had them both maxed out "up", and was still hitting an inch low AT EIGHT YARDS! Ended up destroying a Leapers 4x32 after 10 rounds due to having adjustment maxed. That said, the "inch low" group consistently had 5 pellets touching each other, so I have to say that the overall build of the gun is good, just had a junk barrel. Choose your pellets wisely, this gun only likes what it likes, nothing else. Wadcutters do not fly well out of this barrel, it shoots too fast, lots of "fliers". Had really consistent (albeit low), nice groups out of RWS Super-H-Point 6.9gr pellets. If it wasn't for the horrifyingly bent barrel, this gun would get 4 (or more) stars.

I have a GAMO Big Cat 1400, I want to put a bi-pod on it. I don.t see how it would connect (no dove tail, etc) on bottom. Is it possible to put a bi pod on this rifle, or will I need to buy an extra piece to attach it.
The only bipod you could use would be one that clamps to the barrel
