Gamo has updated this popular hunting rifle by adding their unique optics combo -- 4x32 scope, flashlight and laser. Plus, they've installed their wonderful Smooth Action Trigger (SAT), which is just as smooth and crisp as those aftermarket triggers everyone used to buy. Now, your Gamo Varmint Hunter air rifle is ready to go right out of the box!

Besides the great new trigger (which will go a long way toward increasing your accuracy), they've updated this rifle with their Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) recoil pad that absorbs the felt recoil. That means the gun will absorb the shock of the recoil and transfer less to your body. It'll make shooting that much more fun.

If you do your part, this magnum rifle will easily take out pest animals such as rabbits, squirrels, small birds and nutria. Your best bet for hunting small critters will be with lead pellets.

Things I liked: Solid barrel to receiver action with easy breaking. Good balance and weight. Receiver is stamped with country of manufacture as Spain (not sure if the components were manufactured in China but at least the rifle was assembled in Spain). Hard hitting rifle.

Things I would have changed: The trigger is very poor with a long second stage. Others have reported replacing the trigger on this rifle with the aftermarket GRTIII. BUT on my late-model version the plastic trigger CANNOT be replaced with a GRTIII. The scope is not very good, with the laser and flashlight not very useful for my purposes.

What others should know: Despite a lousy trigger this rifle can hold 1/2" groups at 25 yds with Predators and RWS Meisterkugeln pellets. But every time I finally squeeze off a shot I wish I could have a GRTIII.

Things I liked: Powerful, dependable and easy to handle. Added laser and light very effective in heavy canopy woods, excellent for midnight pest control. Light makes the eyes glow while laser is centered between them ... Presto! Have had this gun now for 5 years and had to replace spring once. Will upgrade to gas piston should the spring ever fail again, gas was not available last time. Pyramid Air repair dept was quick with the the repair and free return shipping ... good customer service, highly recommend.

Things I would have changed: Nothing in particular, but would love to exchange for Nitro gas spring model or to upgrade. Would like it if this model was made in larger caliber.

What others should know: Great gun for Squirrel hunting and for keeping by the back door for night time critters/pests causing a ruckus out back !! Perfect for finding and dealing with pesky critters in the dark of night.
