  • deadeye from USA asked:

    Anyone know where these are made? I guess they are a copy of the Gamo Compact. I believe they were made in Spain if I am not mistaken and they were great guns. Thanks

    • Paul from USA:

      From the picture it said Spain on the left side.

  • Josh from USA asked:

    Can I shoot lead free pellets out of this gun. I tried H&N sport lead free pellets and the gun.doesn't shoot them

  • Tim from USA asked:

    Is the Chiappa FAS 6004 worth twice the money? I don't shoot competitively but I have begun shooting a lot of targets lately and noticed my pistols leave a lot to be desired... I really just want to see how good I am at 10 meters.

    • Tyler from USA:

      The FAS trigger can be made nicer that the V10. It's also a little more friendly to shooters with smaller hands than the V10.

  • Jeff from USA asked:

    What kind of oil should I use for the piston seal, on this gun.

  • Edward from USA asked:

    Are large or extra large grips available for this pistol?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not at this time, but I would say the factory grip is on the larger side of medium

  • Jim from USA asked:

    How does it compare with the Beeman top cockers? I have a P9 (I think) and find it awkward to shoot 45 times for IHMSA silhouette.

    • Joycr from USA asked:

      What am I doing wrong? When I pull the trigger sometimes, the gun does not fire and I have to re pump. Once it even fired while I was releasing the barrel assembly.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Have you adjusted the trigger at all? You may want to increase the pull weight by turning the screw in the back of the grip counter clockwise. If that does not help, I would call Air Venturi and talk to one of the technicians.

    • Chuck from USA asked:

      Is there a set of Grips that will work for left/right hand shooters the 747 or v 10? [email protected]

      • Jim from USA:

        There is a left hand version offered in the ad.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not at this time

    • Tom from USA asked:

      Is there any way to mount a red dot type sight on this pistol?

      • pcp4me from USA:

        Not easily. You almost would have to make a mount for it!

    • Mike from USA asked:

      Made in China?

      • Doug from USA:

        it is stamped all over the gun " made is Spain "

      • pcp4me from USA:

        According to what I read on the internet, this is indeed made in Spain by Gamo! Sure resembles the Gamo Compact!

      • pcp4me from USA:

        Made in Spain? By Gamo? Sure would love to know?

      • Val from USA:

        No. Made in Spain

    • Dan from USA asked:

      Ditto the previous question. Is the Air Venturi V10 Competition Target Pistol different than the old Gamo Compact?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes it is. The V10 trigger is adjustable for weight on top of the adjustments that were already present in the Compact. You can take it down to just under 1 lbs.

    • Hoosier Daddy from USA asked:

      Air Venturi V10? Is this the Gamo Compact? Exactly what has changed?

      • Tyler from USA:

        The V10 sports an adjustable trigger.

    • Skip from USA asked:

      Can this be drilled and taped for a red dot mount?

      • Anthony from USA:

        The plastic running the length of the "slide" is only a shell and just a couple of mm thick. It seems like a study FRN type plastic and so maybe you could drill and tap, use a finely threaded screw and get ~1.5 threads to bite? You might be able to add a very thin nut/metal backing plate under there too but there's very little clearance between the barrel and the underside of the plastic shell/slide maybe only another 1-2mm. Maybe a combination of these along with using a plastic rail w/ epoxy? But I can't see any easy way to do it.

      • pcp4me from USA:

        Well.....since most of the pistol is PLASTIC, I think not. The metal straps that fit under the grip and come over the top of the pistol MIGHT be able to be modified, but no bets on that!

      • Stanley from USA:

        I would be cautious about drilling a hole anywhere on this pistol ?

    • Robert A. from USA asked:

      Does this pistol come with a tin of pellets and a case?

      • pcp4me from USA:

        Case yes, pellets no!

      • Tyler from USA:

        Comes with a case, there is not a tin of pellets included sadly.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Yes . Although not mentioned in the text a reviewer says it comes in a case and a tin of pellets.

    • Rex from USA asked:

      Does anyone know if the Compact is still made by Gamo in Spain, or farmed out to another maker?

      • pcp4me from USA:

        According to another web site, this gun IS indeed a Gamo, but Air Venturi is an exclusive USA distributor, so it is no longer branded as a Game. But never the less, "a rose by any other name is...." Another web site says it IS a Game, imported by Air Venturi with their logo. Never the less, "a rose by any other name is...." STILL a Gamo!

      • Mark from USA:

        Made by Gamo in Spain

      • Mike from USA:

        Yes Check out 2nd picture from right

    • Joe from USA asked:

      Trigger adjustable? The standard for 10m is .5K or about 1.1# -- is the weight adjustable or just the shoe?

      • Louis from USA:

        The shoe just looks fancy. Pull is adjustable, as well as the rotation of the "shoe". Otherwise, a very fine trigger.

      • pcp4me from USA:

        The trigger adjustment screw is located in the BACK of the grip. I have not measured mine, just adjusted it as low as it would go!

      • Tyler from USA:

        The trigger is adjustable for weight. You can take the trigger safely just under 1 lbs.

      • Mark from USA:

        Just the shoe

    • Jim from USA asked:

      Is there a Left Hand grip available for this?

      • Mark from USA:

        not at the moment

    • Sid S from USA asked:

      Why does the specification state that the trigger is adjustable for pull weight but the reviews all state that it is not?

      • Tyler from USA:

        the trigger IS adjustable for weight. This is a new feature built into the V10.

      • Mark from USA:

        mistake, corrected looks like it

    • Rob from USA asked:

      Is a left handed grip available?

      • pcp4me from USA:

        Why do you call it a Compact? It is branded as a V10 Match. I do not believe the Compact was a match pistol?

      • Daniel from USA:

        Left hand grip for Gamo Compact is available from It should fit the V-10 frame but you would have to drill a hole to provide acces to the trigger adjustment screw. I did buy one and it fit my Compact perfectly. Have customized it to fit my hand.

      • Mark from USA:

        not at the moment
