Things I liked:I am what you would typically call a novice air gunner. Have been shooting on and off since I was around 12 - some 35 years ago... I asked all the novice questions; Break barrel or fixed, gas piston or spring, hand made quality or mass produced etc. I bought a Gamo Shadow IGT - very nice, powerful and good value. But from above 20 yards I was not satisfied with the grouping, even if I tried all kind of pellets. I achieved within one inch groupings with a lot of practice, but was not satisfied. I bought the Gamo CFR Whisper IGT, factory produced gas piston. Wow! No, really WOW! It is like shooting a totally different gun! I am so glad that I did not spend double the money - still, this is just a spare time hobby for me. The groupings on the very first day of shooting from 20 yards are within 1cm!!!! That is 4/10 of an inch! And I do not see myself as a skilled marksman. If accuracy and value for Money is what you are looking for, it is hard to believe that this can be beaten!
Things I would have changed:The underlever seems a little bit weak and time will tell if it will hold up. Even if the trigger is the same SAT as in my Gamo Shadow IGT, it feels a lot smoother and sensitive. From what I understand a quality air rifle is as good as new after 20 years and almost Daily shooting. For my needs, once everey now and then I do belive that my Gamo will deliver. If possible, I would have bought a version without fixed sights, using a scope is my preferance.
What others should know:I am sure that there are many professionals out there, who all have so much more experience and knowledge compared to me. I am sure that there are arguments why you should consider a lot of other brands that can match or outperform this air rifle. But I challenge all of you to present an affordable - good value for money air rifle that will outperform this one!
Things I liked:Gun is EXTREMELY accurate, consistently shooting quarter size groups at 35 yards.. Gun was purchased to eliminate squirrels from bird feeders around the yard. Not as powerful as some on the market but is the most accurate I've shot for under $500. Able to make head shots on squirrels out to 35 yds. time and again. If plinking and small game elimination is your goal, you won't go wrong with this one.
Things I would have changed:Had immediate trouble with bundled mounting system even after loctite.. I have since ordered a BKL one piece mount from Pyramyd Air and scope or rings haven't moved at all. Provided 3x9 Gamo scope is descent but leaves some to be desired. I have also just ordered a Leapers 3x9, b/c I think this gun is capable of much more with better optic. Maybe Gamo should offer a cheaper price with no scope/mounting system provided..
What others should know:This system is definitely worth the extra $$.. Have shot several brands of pellets, and gun performs solid even with cheaper Daisy brand. Have gotten my best groupings with H&N and Predator Polymags both purchased from Pyramyd. If a super quiet accurate gun is what you're looking for, this one is perfect. Would not hesitate to purchase this one again.
Things I liked:Accuracy, Accuracy and Accuracy!
Things I would have changed:The gun is big, bulky and heavy.
What others should know:I'm doing sniper style shooting out my back window so the weight and bulk of the rifle is a secondary concern. My focus is on a humane kill or head shot so accuracy is of primary importance.
