Sturdily built. Plenty of rope. Reducer rings. Lots of fun. Saves money in long run over paper targets.Things I would have changed:
Reducer rings fall off. I fixed this by bending the hooks with a vice grips to narrow the gap between the end of the hook and the ring. This makes it harder to get the ring on and off but solved the problem.What others should know:
Must be screwed to something solid else pegs work out of ground. Figure on repainting center (and rings if you miss) often. Instead I just use orange stick on dots. You can now get extra animal faces.

Really nice target, functions when pieces don't pop off and get lost in the grass.Things I would have changed:
Ordered three targets, one broke on the first 10 shots, the second broke after 20 shots. Contacting GAMO service is absolutely PAINFUL. After 3 days of emails back and forth they wanted me to spend my money to send them back so they could figure out what is wrong. Will look for just about any other comparible product before going with GAMO again.What others should know:
Customer service can make or break a company and it seems like Gamo is going for the latter.
Holding up so far. The different sized plates have a few dents/bends, nothin a hammer cant flatten, lol. but they're getting smacked with .25 FX and Hades @30yds from an Avenger.Things I would have changed:
Make it a little thicker. Make reducing plates thicker. Make spikes longer/double sided.What others should know:
Not a bad target, even for .25 Avenger. Some people said that the plates might fly off from a hit impact. I wrapped a small rubber band around the back tab and they keep it secure. problem solved.
Sturdy squirrel for target practice.Things I would have changed:
A but heaver metalWhat others should know:
Better shoot straight!
Fairly sturdy. Hook on pop in holes holds them in place pretty well. Only shooting at 20Yds, so I brazed a smaller washer on the smallest hole. Works great.Things I would have changed:
Add one more hole that is smaller for closer shooting.What others should know:
Need to bolt it to a heavy base so you can easily pull it back up. Easier to pull up if you set it so it does not fall completely down.
The target makes for entertaining recreational shooting.
very good target! works OkThings I would have changed:
Replace the pins with lock nuts & bolts. attach the rings!What others should know:
over priced! the UMAREX Deer is the same target and is $5 less!
I had used these targets before I purchased two for myself. The specific ones I purchased work fine.Things I would have changed:
I would wish that Gamo would specify the maximum number of foot pounds to safely use these targets at less than 25 yards. I am a field target shooter and I like to practice in my back yard where I have only 24 yards. As I only have a 12 ft lbs rifle I think I will be able to safely shoot a bit under that. I want this because the shortest distance you shoot at in Field Target competition is 10 yards.What others should know:
The string that Gamo provides is adequate; however, the connection to the target itself will get destroyed fairly easily. This is not a major worry because the problem is really easy to fix. In fact there are a number of possible solutions and you should be able to do one of them. Airgun Spymaster
Very sturdy when staked downThings I would have changed:
Stronger cord for resettingWhat others should know:
Size, cord and cord holder,Things I would have changed:
I would make the target size reducers attached like some others have. So you can't loose them! Add some touch up colors Yellow & Black. Make them Left & RightWhat others should know:
Buy one or two and have at it ! Lot's of fun
Simple design. Fun to shoot. Works as advertised out to 55 yards using my 11.2 foot-pound .177 caliber field target air rifle.Things I would have changed:
Replace face plate with thicker material like Air Venturi Rat. Reducers need to be bolted to the face place. One bolt and nut though the reducer and face plate is what is needed. Replace hinge pins and friction washers with shoulder bolts and nuts. Many Gamo targets will eventually fall apart when these hinges fail. I have seen brand new Gamo targets fail at field target matches this way. I wish it had 55 yards of string instead of 50.What others should know:
Reducers are in metric sizes 30mm (1.181"), 20mm (.787"), 13mm (.512") and 10mm (.394"). The KZ is 40mm (1.575").
Size is good and string winder is great.Things I would have changed:
Use safety nut and bolt to secure connector arms, the pins use a type of spring washer and fall off after some use.
Very sturdy, always works. I have six of them, left outside although covered. I bought the faceplate pack so I'm not just shooting squirrels. These are the least expensive knockovers I have found and are as good as any. Mine have taken a lot of abuse and still work great.What others should know:
The target hole reducers will sometimes flip off with a miss. A little stcky tape remedies this. People new at shooting love these.
Steel is .01 shy of 1/8 inch. Has held up very well to .22 NP at 30 yards. Have not shot at it closer than that yet. No problem with the operation of the target - knocks down and resets as it should.Things I would have changed:
Not a fan of the drop in reducers. They have fallen out occasionaly when shooting at target. And now I have 4 reducers to lose or forget where I put.What others should know:
I bought this and the Remington targets. I have to give the edge to the Remington targets. Base is a little beefier. Stakes to drive in ground are beefier and have a circle on top to make pulling out easier. Also they have integrated the reducers into the target with a bolt. Just swing one into place and the other or simply swung behing the target out of the way. All that being said, I would still buy another Gamo - just like the Remmington for the above mentioned reasons.
Put together in sec and works great.Things I would have changed:
Nothing.What others should know:
Fun to shot
More fun than shooting at paper targets. The reset mechanism works well, and the included stakes(4) hold the target securely in place.Things I would have changed:
The mechanism is stiff and low energy hits (~7 FPE) are not sufficient to trip the target. Is there a way to loosen the mechanism? There does not appear to be an adjustment.What others should know:
I have not yet tried out the reducers, so I don't know if they stay in place or not. You should also know that the yellow of the target comes off pretty quickly. With a decent scope, this is not really a problem, and you can always touch it up with spray paint.
Only taken a few shots at the target, while in the basement. Waiting for warmer weather to set up for longer ranges. Purchased due to feedback from on of the staff. After assembling the components (very easy process), I can see this is a better choice vs. the other options on the PA website - heavier construction, and the lanyard reset saves the use of pellets, that would be used for resetting the other targets.Things I would have changed:
Time will tell......What others should know:
Great feedback from any of the PA staff
Easy set up, durable, variable kill zone.Things I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
I actually use this with a higher rated powers and have not had a problem other than loosening up on occasion.
fact that u have different size adaptersThings I would have changed:
make the thing so the adapters dont fly off when hit, and try using some better hardware to assembleWhat others should know:
this is a fun item. not perfect but with a few of your own nuts and bolts it wont fall apart on ya. you think they would give ya some small threaded screws with a lock nut rather than the cheesy press on clip that will constantly fall off! dont shoot at too close of a range with high power it does get bent up a bit
Fun to shoot.Things I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
Not really. Works as advertised.
Very sturdy and works wellThings I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
The instructions say to shoot this at 25 yards (for ricochet safety). It's VERY difficult to hit the yellow paddle at that range. I can't imagine using the reducer rings at 75 feet !
Easy to change face plates (when you buy the kit) and they are easy to set up and mount in trees etc... Good quality strong string comes with it.Things I would have changed:
Improve the way the reducer ring mounts. I use a small bit of tape to keep it from falling off if it is struck by the pellet.What others should know:
East to make a tree mount. Just be sure the board you are mounting it on sits level so the target will fall and reset with no issues. I have some that have been in the trees for over 8 years now. Just do a little maintenance every now and then to keep them working as they should.
