More about Gamo Match pellets: Part 1

by B.B. Pelletier

Regular blog reader Vince has tested some Gamo Match pellets for us in a LOT of guns. His vast collection means he can really give a pellet the once-over to see if it’s accurate anywhere.

This is the first of two parts where I test old and new Gamo Match pellets in .177 and .22. This round is in .177. I’ll do .22 caliber another day. I wanted to see if the pellet changed enough to affect their performance. read more


RWS 92 – Part 3

Part 1
Part 2

Well, this is a very poignant report. Because the day I posted Part 2 was the first day I spent in the hospital, back in March of this year. The plan at the time was to finish the report in another week or so, but things got in the way until now.

You can re-read Parts 1 and 2 and learn what I already discovered about the RWS 92. Vince, who gave me the rifle, had apparently tuned it with a general deburring and some moly lube. I commented that the rifle seemed like a 7/8-sized FWB 124 in many design ways.

Today, I tested accuracy, and this is a big deal. I think it’s the first accuracy testing I’ve done since getting sick. I know I was certainly thankful for the 20 lbs. of cocking effort, because I’ve lost a lot of upper body strength over the past several months. And one flaw I see in the rifle is the lack of a rubber buttpad, because the plastic buttpad tried to slip off my leg as I broke the barrel down. read more
