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.
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.
What kind of oil should I use for the piston seal, on this gun.
Crosman pellgun oil is a good choice: Crosman Pellgun oil...
Are large or extra large grips available for this pistol?
Not at this time, but I would say the factory grip is on the larger side of medium
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.
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.
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.
Is there a set of Grips that will work for left/right hand shooters the 747 or v 10? email@example.com
There is a left hand version offered in the ad.
Not at this time
Is there any way to mount a red dot type sight on this pistol?
Not easily. You almost would have to make a mount for it!
Made in China?
it is stamped all over the gun " made is Spain "
According to what I read on the internet, this is indeed made in Spain by Gamo! Sure resembles the Gamo Compact!
Made in Spain? By Gamo? Sure would love to know?
No. Made in Spain
Ditto the previous question. Is the Air Venturi V10 Competition Target Pistol different than the old Gamo Compact?
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.
Air Venturi V10? Is this the Gamo Compact? Exactly what has changed?
The V10 sports an adjustable trigger.
Can this be drilled and taped for a red dot mount?
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.
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!
I would be cautious about drilling a hole anywhere on this pistol ?
Does this pistol come with a tin of pellets and a case?
Case yes, pellets no!
Comes with a case, there is not a tin of pellets included sadly.
Yes . Although not mentioned in the text a reviewer says it comes in a case and a tin of pellets.
Does anyone know if the Compact is still made by Gamo in Spain, or farmed out to another maker?
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!
Made by Gamo in Spain
Yes Check out 2nd picture from right
Trigger adjustable? The standard for 10m is .5K or about 1.1# -- is the weight adjustable or just the shoe?
The shoe just looks fancy. Pull is adjustable, as well as the rotation of the "shoe". Otherwise, a very fine trigger.
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!
The trigger is adjustable for weight. You can take the trigger safely just under 1 lbs.
Just the shoe
Is there a Left Hand grip available for this?
not at the moment
Why does the specification state that the trigger is adjustable for pull weight but the reviews all state that it is not?
the trigger IS adjustable for weight. This is a new feature built into the V10.
mistake, corrected looks like it
Is a left handed grip available?
Why do you call it a Compact? It is branded as a V10 Match. I do not believe the Compact was a match pistol?
Left hand grip for Gamo Compact is available from http://www.airgunspares.com/store/product/5721/Gamo-Compact-Left-Hand-Grip-Unit/ 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.
