    • The Big Cat is a wonderful, lightweight, powerful air rifle. Adding the Crosman Nitro Piston delivers even more benefits!

      Awesome power is what you need to hunt successfully, and the Gamo Big Cat has it!

      From the all-weather synthetic stock to the bull barrel, this rifle is bound to please any shooter who aims to take game. For more precise shooting and to get the most accuracy from the gun, the Big Cat comes with a 3-9x40 scope and mount.

      The Monte Carlo buttstock has a raised cheekpiece on each side, making this gun ideal for right- or left-handed shooters. It also has the Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) to reduce felt recoil. Shoot either lead pellets or PBA ammo to attain your hunting goals. Of course, you don't have to hunt with this gun! It's a fun plinker and will give you hours of shooting pleasure.

      Benefits of choosing a Big Cat with a Crosman Nitro Piston conversion:
      • Smoother cocking
      • Smoother shooting
      • No spring torque
      • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
      • Functions perfectly in cold weather
      • Lasts longer than a metal spring
      • Installed by our expert gunsmiths!
      • NOTE: Installation of the Crosman Nitro Piston will delay shipment by 24 hours (or one business day)
      Installation of the Crosman Nitro Piston has a 1 year warranty. Click on the AMMO link for suggested pellets and the ACCESSORIES link for safety glasses, gun cases, targets, maintenance gear & more.

    Things I liked: it is very very nice light weight and powerful. I got it out of the box and saw a bird.put in a CP HP and shot him dead in the head!!

    Things I would have changed: not much besides a better scope. but don't let that stop you from buying one

    What others should know: it is hard to cock at first but lightens up ALOT. not loud at all and has absolutely no recoil sometimes I barely know when it shoots!You should buy this if you like to hunt birds,squirrels, and rabbits!!!

    Things I liked: First i'd like to say that this isn't the first gamo that I own. No difference from the other two, this thing shoot very straight, and I'm hitting targets at 50 plus yards that are a little less than 1.5 inches in size. I did put a 3x9x32 scope o it. The one that comes with it is ok for plinking, but if you really want to see what this is rifle can. do change the scope

    Things I would have changed: Supply with a better scope.

    What others should know: I have friends that have other brand, they have problems hitting what I can at the ranges that I am. To be fair I have problems hitting those same targets with their rifles.

    Things I liked: I wanted an air rifle that would shoot accurately from 30 to 50 yds. with some true knockdown power because I intend to hunt with this gun and not just shoot at targets. I read a LOT of reviews on guns from very moderately priced to the really expensive models. The Big Cat in .22 cal. with the nitro piston seemed well reviewed. I totally agree with the good reviews! I haven't shot enough pellets yet to really break in the gun, but I'm already getting tennis ball to golf ball sized groupings at 40 yds. With time and practice, I think I can get that kind of groupings at 50 yds. Most reviews hated the scope that came with the gun, but I've found it to be a pretty good scope so far. I had to tighten the screws a couple of times but now they seem to be staying tight. I have no complaints at all at this point. Accurate and hits really hard in the .22 cal. The synthetic stock works well for me because it's really tough and scratch resistant. Wood looks and feels great, but I'm happy with this stock. Really, it has done everything I wanted an air gun to do and at a price I thought was very reasonable.

    Things I would have changed: The gun clangs a little when shot, and I read that some kind of insulation in the stock would quiet it down a little, so I might try that. The trigger pull seems a little long, and I wish it was a lot shorter. It takes some getting used to. Also, the safety seems backwards to me. You push it away from you for "fire" and pull it back toward you for "safe". That seems backwards to me. It may be that way to keep you from actually pulling the trigger when you take it off safety, but perhaps a safety outside the trigger ring would be better.

    What others should know: I think this is a great gun for the money! I'm very happy with the purchase. My other gun is a multi-pump Benjamin, and I love it but the single cock barrel is sure easier, although it does take some effort to cock it. I Really like this gun!

    • Michael from USA asked:

      Is there a way for me to get a SAT trigger put on this rifle as well?

      • Edith from USA:

        At this time, Gamo isn't selling their SAT trigger separately. You can get it only if you buy a gun with the SAT already installed. An alternate is to buy an aftermarket trigger from Charlie da Tuna. Before the SAT trigger was developed, CDT's aftermarket GRT trigger was the way to go.
