What's the difference between this and the BSA Buccaneer?
Of course the stock, but the big difference is the Urban has a smaller cylinder.
pyramyd air ship to mexico?
Does it come with a fill probe in the box
Our Field Target events are limited to 20 ft.lb. energy rifles. Is there a way to 'dial back' this gun to meet this requirement? (Ex: consistent shots at lower fill pressure, use heavier pellets, etc.?) Thanks in advance!
I'm using my Urban for Field Target practice on my own range. My Field Targets (4) are at 15-25-35-40 yds with hit zones set to .5-1-1-1.5". A .22 might not be the optimum rifle for FT but I'm getting a lot of good practice in my own range. If you are shooting FT just for fun, I think the Urban works pretty good! I'm shooting GTOs. I lowered the FPE to less than 20 by removing the stock and using a 4mm hex key to reduce the hammer spring tension. You'll want to borrow or get a chronograph to set the fpe and fps to the desired level. I'm shooting the GTOs at 838 fps.
It can be done. It would require some internal work, and even at that point, you're better off with a .177 caliber rifle for FT. More margin for error and a flatter trajectory at 20 fpe than a .22 at that energy.
Will a 21gr. pellet work well with this rifle?
Mine loves the JSB jumbo Monster's 25.39 gr. They are a little tight going into the magazine though.
That depends on your barrel, but you can certainly try them
Ok, so I want to use a air tank for this gun. Looking at the air venturi 300psi 80cu for this unit. Will this fill it and about how many times, plan on shooting till hits 2000psi and then top off. Also what is the proper valve fopr this tank. my local dive shop can only fill to 3000psi
If you fill the rifle to about 2900 psi, you'd get 10-12 good fills at that pressure from a 3000 psi tank pressure. To connect to the gun, you'll need this fill adapter: Air Venturi Scuba Tank Yoke... The fill probe that comes with the rifle will thread into the end of the hose and allow you to fill your rifle.
Does anybody know if H&N Hornet pellets will fit the magazine for this rifle?
Sorry for answering my own question, but in case anybody else would like to know....I have received my Urban and the answer is NO. The H&N Hornet will not fit this magazine and rotate properly. The only way to fire the Hornet that I have found is to use the magazine as a single shot tray. The pellet will fit inside the magazine, but the rotor won't spin. Therefore, if you just take an empty magazine and load one Hornet into the mag...you can insert that mag into the gun and chamber the Hornet. Sort of single shot style. Good enough for me, and my Urban LOVES the Hornet.
What adapter would I need if I had an Air Venturi G7S hand pump?
there is some way to separate Whisper Maxxim silencer??
Not that I have seen
can a bi pod be mounted to this?
You would need to install either a rail section or swivel stud into the stock. It does not come with a provision to mount a bipod
What is the best pellet for the urban out to about 50 yards? looking for accuracy
In my testing, the JSB 15.89 and 18.13 grain pellets did the best, but your mileage may vary.
I realize that the stock of the Gamo Urban is ambidextrous, but can the bolt be changed to be left-handed?
Not as far as I know
Pressure gauge is stuck at 2000 psi. Is there a good replacement. The rifle works fine other than the gauge.
Steven you should never use any oil other than pure silicone on a PCP . It will combust and blow up if it gets into any high pressure area .
Mine was stuck as well. I placed a few drops of wd40 in the small hole on the side of the gauge to free it up. Took a few fills to move the needle but works good now.
Is this probe the same as the one for the Krals Looks like one
Is there a single shot tray available?
Not at this time
Hello I was wondering if I can use the Benjamin hand pump to fill the Gamo urban I saw that the gamo urban has a probe to fill the gun so I didn't know if the female quick connect on the Benjamin pump will fit the probe If it does not fit what do I need to buy to allow it to connect
You will need Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"... for the fill probe in order to connect it to your pump.
When spare mags cost $50 each why should I be interested? If they weren't adding back end cost it would be a rifle I would want, $50 magazines is a deal breaker period!
Re:Lee I do WANT a spare or even two for all my rifles, and two would be $100 which is ridiculous, comparable made magazines from other brands sell similarly made magazines that I am sure cost virtually the same cost to manufacture for 1/3 the price, the price of the magazines is unjustifiable. My Hatsan came with two and I bought two more, my P-rod came with one and I bought five more my Marauder came with two and I bought three more. Its about the convenience of having them loaded and waiting, possibly with different pellet types for various applications even. Many, maybe most people like to have extra magazines and they know it! I see it as a hook planned to catch people, but I see the hook!
do you really need more than 1 magazine for hunting or target shooting i use mine for hunting and the mag is a quality bsa mag no higher then if you owned a bsa rifle
Can anyone tell me if the Polly mag works well in this gun and what the FPE and FPS is with the .22 16 grain Polly mag
Can you use a hand pump for this gun; and if so, what is a good, lower cost option? Anything in the $150 range?
Yes, but you'll want to make sure it's a pump that is capable of filling to 232 BAR, I would recommend the Air Venturi Mk4. The fill probe from the gun will thread right into the end of the pump hose. Air Venturi MK4 by Hill...
I need a replacement air adapter that came with the urban and possibly a whole new gauge housing this one came out of the box leaking. mine is not a ideal fit and will not allow me to pump up my urban. i ordered it thru Amazon and have got no help there I have only got to shoot it once not very stoked
Do the GAMO PBA .22 pellets work well on this gun
cant speak for all urbans but mine shoots the gamo pba at 970 fps less than 1/2" 5 shot groups at 20 yds and also shoots the same size groups with jsb 15.89
I'd recommend JSB pellets
And could i humanely kill a coyote with this
under 25yds with good shot placement yes but would not be my first choice
Wouldn't recommend it. Go .25 or larger with upwards of 45 FPE for humane kills on coyotes.
Never mind about the tank i decided just to buy a benjamin hand pump But thank you for your answer on both questions
If i am going to fill my rifle with a Ninja 35CI/ 3000 psi, HPA paintball tank what do i need
Is the output on the tank regulated? Do you already have a hose or whip that will attach to a male quick disconnect fitting?
Wich is better the gamo urban pcp .22 for hunting and pest control any where from 10 60 yards But what is better the GAMO urban or the benjamin discovery .22 or the benjamin Maximus .22
The Urban is the better gun. Multi shot capability, has a functional suppressor and a much better trigger.
Will the magazine accept the Crosman Penetrator lead free pellets? These are too long for my Gamo Swarm mag. and it would be good to know if they worked with this model.
Can this kill coyotes or bobcats with a head shot
Use your best judgement and be sure of your shot , a heavy pellet may do the job ? For me i wouldn't use anything smaller than a 30 caliber just to sure . JUST SAYING.
Does the Gamo Urban have a probe port filling system?
I call GamoUSA the barrel O.D. is 16mm.
does anyone know what scope is best for hunting with this rifle? any info is good . Thanks, Damian
I'm using the new 3-12x UTG Bug Buster. It is light, compact and usefully clear. I also got the special side AO focus wheel made for the Bug Buster. This combo works well in keeping with the light, compact and easy handling Urban. This combo is my favorite setup compared to the Discovery, Maximus, Marauder, Coyote, TX200 and S510 Ultimate Sporter. YMMV
I have used UTG scopes on many of my guns . They make a good scope for money .
Como rrecargo mi urban de aire mas facil directo del compresor o del tanque de recarga
Puedo rrecargar de aire mi urban directamente con el compresor o debo llenar un tanque especial para recargarlo
normally I clean my rifle by running the rod from breech to muzzle. cannot do this with the GAMO urban. do I go from muzzle to breech with the rod??
Cleaning of pellet guns is not necessary very often or recommended either. By B.B. Pelletier You dont always HAVE to clean your barrel Airgun barrels do get dirty. They collect dirt in the bore from the oil in the barrel. Oil gets there for many reasons. In spring guns, the mechanism puts it there (through the transfer port). In pneumatics and gas guns, we sometimes oil the pellets. Some pellets even come pre-oiled or waxed. So barrels do get dirty, but the deposits dont remain inside. Every pellet down the barrel scrapes out the deposits from the pellets that went before. This is why many airgunners never clean their barrels. Faster velocities and hard pellets can deposit lead in the bore As velocities climb above 900 f.p.s., some pellets will leave streaks of lead on the surface of the bore. Hard pellets are the worst. Pure lead pellets are soft and dont leave lead deposits as easily, but pellets that have antimony in their alloy are harder and more prone to scrape off. Try to scratch the head of a pellet with your fingernail. If its soft, youll be able to leave a scratch mark but you wont leave a mark it if it’s hard. 4 rules for the proper cleaning of airguns Unless you know your barrel has lead in it, all you need to do is: 1. Run several clean patches through the bore to remove the dirt and grease. Remember, you DO NOT have to do this unless you want to! Many Olympic champions do not clean their airguns – ever! But there is no harm in cleaning, unless you make some fundamental mistakes. 2. Clean from the breech if at all possible. You want to protect the rifling at the muzzle because damage there will spoil the gun’s accuracy. 3. Do not use solvents to clean an airgun. A good grade of gun oil on a patch will remove the dirt, but keep that to a minimum. 4. Dry the bore after cleaning unless the gun is going into long-term storage, in which case a light film of good gun oil is best. By B.B. Pelletier
Yep, just use a soda straw inside of the moderator to make sure the baffled are not damaged.
Will a Benjamin High-Pressure PCP Pump (HPP2KU) work with this rifle? Do I need an adapter?
You'll need Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"...
Can the Benjamin 4500 psi hand pump be used on the Urban without any additional adapters? Used like with the Maximum . . . . Marauder etc.
You will need Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"... to adapt the fill probe to quick disconnect
Does this gun already come with an air adapter? if so which one?
It comes with a standard 1/8" BSPP male threaded probe.
No you will need this Air Venturi Male Quick Disconnect #PY-A-3550.....On the recommended accessories below.
Trying to decide which one would be a better rifle to get gamo coyote ,gamo urban or BSA buccneir
All good choices the Coyote and the Buccaneer get more shots per fill , but the Urban is lighter ?Good luck with that.
Does this company always promise and then not deliver?
How do you mean? examples please...
I wanted to remove the whisper off my gamo urban, does anyone know if it has a threaded barrel?I know I have to saw off the whisper
There is no way to really know without removing it. Maybe Gamo USA would know? I'd give them a try
Can the gamo urban be regulated
There is most likely one availabe from the UK.
Dose this gun come in smooth bore
Hi Can I replace the suppressor on thes gun
Guns with included moderators are not removable by the customer ( not meant to ) .
will the Benjamin discovery pump work on this rifle
Yes with this adapter Air Venturi Male Quick Disconnect # Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"....
So is this another re Marked B.S.A. gun that gamo put there label on like the coyote whisper?
Yes, Gamo has owned BSA since the late 80s/early 90s
Gamo does own BSA ?? Probably outsourced ?
Hey Guys ... I see that this little beauty has a regulator. And, since someone will eventually as this question anyway, let's get it out of the way now. Does anyone know at what pressure the regulator is set and would it be enough to allow the rifle to operate on CO2?
Yeah, definitely not regulated. Gamo/BSA call it a self regulated valve (which does nothing but confuse people). There is no regulator in this rifle.
Watch the video by Tyler he states its not regulated ?
Does this Gamo have a BSA barrel? How do you order spare magazines? Or are the overpriced BSA magazines used in this rifle? If they are that would be a deal breaker for me.
Yes and yes! Over priced mags and it is a BSA barrel and there are barrel blanks available for about 150$ in different lengths as well I am planning on getting a 24' barrle and a bsa moderator instead of the gamo whisper will post results when done
I think it's confirmed now, this IS a BSA with the Gamo name on it. I'd buy one now but not with extra mags @ $50 a pop! That's CRAZY! I got FOUR spares for my Synrod for just below $50. Same thing with my AT44, FOUR mags for less than $50--both on sale but normally about $15 @ piece.!
If you watch the video by Tyler he says its unknown if its a (hammer forged BSA barrel ) or not? PA has spare mags , but prepared to sheel out 50 bucks each . I had the same problem with my BSA Scorpion , and i did find some for half that amount.
There is no way that you can fill this to 3365lbs with a hand pump. You would have to be seven foot tall and weigh 350 to be able to press it in.
I have this gun and use the benjamin hand pump and fill to 232 bar all the time I am 5'10 160 pounds and I find it easy lock your arms and drop your weight on one foot after a few stokes youll get the feal. I find this gun to be vary pump friendly the cylinder is 105cc or 115cc so pressure builds quickly
I think this is why pcp tanks, cylinders and air rifles can be transported under pressure is because they are filled with atmospheric air witch is inurt and not explosive
wow! John is 68 feet tall and 145 lbs.?
I have this rifle and I use to hill pump with no problems filling it up and I'm on 68' tall and 145lbs
2 answers - 1.) To James Pitman's reply below, I don't believe it would be illegal to drive with a fully pressurized airgun tank. I deduce this because there are full propane tank trucks, also trucks transporting high pressure air, O2, CO2, Nitrogen, etc. at far higher pressures, 6000 psi I believe. 2.) To answer the actual question I fill my AirForce Condor to 3000 psi easily with a Hill hand pump so I don't see another 365 psi as being a problem. I say easily but it takes time, technique and brakes. I'm a bit overweight but relatively fit at 56, 6ft, 220lbs,
My Marauder came out of the box with 2000 psi, my Hatsan AT44 arrived with 2900 psi.
Its a mystery to me but it was filled?????
The diameter of the pumps shaft/piston is what matters. If the shaft were about 1.13" dia (sectional area 1 square inch) then you'd need 3365lbs force to make 3365psi, which is literally what "psi" means, but the shaft in the hand pump is much smaller than that. If the shaft were 1/4" dia then it would take 165lbs to generate 3365psi, if 1/8" then only 42lbs. The easier it is to pump the more strokes it'll take to fill the gun so you don't want it too hard or too easy. Unfortunately pumps only have one size piston so it's like a single speed bike. Would be nice if the pumps were variable so you could adjust as tank pressure climbs, and of course to your strength. I can tell you that hand pumping it not fun, so if possible get a tank and or elect pump. Stanley: I can't imagine it's legal to ship a filled gun so I'd imagine they forgot to vent it. The DOT is really anal about pressurized containers. I'd imagine it's illegal to have the filled gun in your car on a public highway too, anyone know for sure?
Of course you can, you just have to have the right pump for these rifles. Regular pumps will not work of course.
I have the BSA Scorpion 1200 SE in .177 caliber and it came out of the box filled so i just keep it topped off after each outing . Unknown if this rifle comes filled or not ?
Does anyone have an idea of the air cylinder size on this? Looking for my first PCP and this sounds like a winner if the cylinder is small enough to be filled easily with a hand pump
105cc and is easy to punk up with hand pump this a great first pcp it was my first
The Coyote says 153cc, and I can't imagine they made a different tank for this one. Pretty tiny but I guess it fits a niche? I'd much rather have a larger cyl and fill less often but that's up the buyer.
Specs are M.I.A. no one has them in stock as of yet.
Is there any information as to why the date keeps getting pushed back by Gamo? Is there an issue with the production line? Is there an issue with customs? W'sup?
Just have to wait.
I cant find any reviews of this rifle.Is it so new that nobody has one yet?I also pre-ordered it a month ago and in stock date keeps getting pushed back.
Yes, very new. Not on the market yet (as of August 29, 2016)
Dito from above question???
Is this a Coyote basically with a synthetic stock?
Haven't seen any real world measurements as of yet but if you were to compare images with the Coyote it would appear that it is the same concept. The Coyote has a longer barrel at 24 inches- per specs- (if you compare images), the Urban also uses a smaller air reservoir ( less shots ) says 30 shots per fill . And of coarse the stock is different.
Will this gun be internally regulated like the coyote and is the barrel hammer forged
Yes and yes.
Will this rifle come with a scope? Picture shows a scope on it but do not see it in description about a scope. Thanks Eric
No scope included.
