Things I liked: Accuracy, feel of the stock, the rubber shoulder piece, the power.
Things I would have changed: Get rid of the fluting, better trigger, offer with Nitro piston, scope will need to be upgraded.
What others should know: Anything below 9g for .177 will likely have spotty accuracy. I can now shoot 3 holes in a dime at 15-20 yards with H&N Sport's Crow Magnum. This gun took a little while to break in, but once it was I was shocked at the accuracy for the amount of power you get.
Things I liked: Powerful, not to heavy or to light, design of the stock, likes most pellets I've tried, trigger was good enough right out of the box that I've never made any attempt to ajust it. Balances well.
Things I would have changed: Drop the laser and light. Either put a better scope on it, or sell without a scope, and let the buyer decide what they won't. A way to install a sling like the benjamin trail would be nice.
What others should know: I've had this air rifle about a year and a half now. When I first got it I had the scope that came with it on for about 30 min. and decided it wasn't going to work for me. So I installed a Center Point 4-16x40. A little big, but a lot better. It's very accurate. At 25yards I can shoot dime size groups. At 50 I get quarter size with an occasional flier. That's with 14.3 gr CHP's. My gun by the way is a .22 cal that for some reason you can't get anymore. Was worried about the plastic trigger for a while, but it has proven itself worthy. Don't expect this gun to be quiet. If you live in a rural area your fine. Anywhere else you might won't to find something quieter. The .22 can make a good bit of noise, I can only imagine the crack a .177 would make. This thing can try your patience at first until you learn how it likes to be shot. Mine had me about ready to beat it against a tree. Then I learned it's secrets, and it became my go to gun when I find an unwanted critter in the yard.
Things I liked: Light weight, not PCP (you will not run out out air), break barrel not too heavy, even my daughter can do it. Very good quality made. Like the green color. Very very durable and weather resistant. Shoot it at any condition (rain or shine). Once you've sighted it (it came with scopes, mounts and combination flashlight and laser), after you've pick the best pellet for it, you almost can't go wrong. Take it and your first shot is as good as your last shot (my experience was 1 year later), from the last time you've shot this gun.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change anything gun design wise, but a little sanding off the sharp edges from the plastic molded stock can help.
What others should know: I find the Gamo Master Point .22 1.05 g 16.20 gr to be very compatible to my gun. H&N field target .95 g 14.66 gr to be best for my gun. Comparing the price of both, why spend more for the H&N??? I find break barrel very practical. I have several PCP. The inconvenience with the PCP is you have to carry spare tanks of compressed air to have a full day of enjoyment. I get the same blast with my break barrel, especially this Gamo. Buy one for yourself, you will not regret it. I take it with me whenever I go camping. Just like what I said from the very beginning of mu review, YOU WILL NOT RUN OUT OF AIR.

Description says Mach 1 gas piston but specifications say spring piston which one is it?
can i kill a pig with correct shot placement with this gun?
I wouldn't try it . If you do make sure you don't miss? If it really does 1400FPS then yes it will.
What are these customers reviewing ? This gun is not green , and it's not a 22 cal ?
It's more of an olive and Pyramyd used to sell a .22 version.
