Things I liked: -Price is reasonable. -For me, this was a nice intro to Gamo rifles. -Surprisingly accurate (with bug buster scope). -Adequate power for low recoil youth oriented rifle. -Easy to handle. -After about the first 200 shots, cocking effort felt far easier than 21 lbs advertised. -Synthetic stock and forearm feel relatively rugged and scratch-resistant.
Things I would have changed: -Awful trigger. I didn't really expect it to be as unpleasant as it was. -IMO, way too twangy for a rifle going at half-magnum speeds. Makes the rifle feel and sound rougher than it needs to be. -For some reason, mine came with the scope although I didn't expect it (since I didn't pay the combo price). This would ordinarily be a good thing but the scope was as bad as other reviews on the net state. -Could use better front and rear sights, perhaps tru-glo as some have suggested.
What others should know: -I read on another net review of this rifle that one shouldn't scope this piece. I really don't agree with that. -The built-in sights are what you'd expect for this price point. -Out of the pellets I have on hand, I've found Gamo Match and Hunter varieties to be acceptably accurate and cheap. -JSB Exacts, once sighted in, will pile on each other but are probably overkill for plinking/light hunting with the Delta. -It is not too difficult to get sub dime-sized groups at 10m/32.8ft. -Gamo Master Point and Magnum pellets were awful during my testing. -I added a weight on the barrel toward the muzzle to help improve balance (helps with my shaky hands!). -Some folks don't like the Gamo safety like on this rifle, but it's very easy to get accustomed to. -My rifle was picked up at another vendor but I would have bought it from PA if I had come here first. -Despite the things I would change, this is a fun little air rifle.
Things I liked: -Works as advertised, really is silent when struck with pellets -Looks to be built solidly -Comes with several target sheets to get you started -Virtually no mess thanks to design and materials
Things I would have changed: -Price was a little higher than I would like -At this price point I would have hoped that the trap could handle more than just "guns that produce less than 18 foot-pounds of energy at 10 meters." It would be nice if in the future they had a version that could handle upto 25 foot-pounds
What others should know: -This has been one of my best purchases from PA -Truly is quiet, based on another review here I bought this to use in my apartment and it's a great solution for my environment -Before I bought this pellet trap, I had been using stacked phonebooks behind target sheets... this was an el-cheapo solution that created tons of mess for me to deal with. I didn't realize how badly a couple dozen pellets would tear up them, ie. I had paper dust in my apartment for a while. With the ballistic putty backing, the A.G.E. trap has no such side effects.
