Things I liked: very accurate for a spring powered rifle. Very moderate cocking effort for the achieved velocity. My Gamo Varmint is pushing 8.18 grain H&N wad cutter lead pellets at a consistent 910 feet per second. EXCELENT results.

Things I would have changed: nothing

What others should know: This rifle just keeps getting better with use. I have now shot close to 1,000 pellets thru it. Several styles of pellets that it shot just O.K. when new, it now shoots them very, very good. I have a large quantity of daisy wad cutters that I bought for less than 1/2 cents each on clearance at local farm supply stores. None of my other 177 cal. guns, rifles or pistols shoot them worth a darn. Now that the Gamo Varmint is broken in, it now shoots the Daisy pellets almost as well as the high quality H&N match rifle pellets. This makes for very economical plinking. I have found a pellet that this rifle has fallen in love with. H&N Match Rifle wad cutter pellets, 8.18 grain. H&N Match Rifle, .177 Cal, 4.49mm, 8.18 Grains, Wadcutter, 500ct This pellet makes this rifle think it is a PCP. It just puts them exactly where you point the gun. This target was shot at 10 meters from a bag rest by a 68 year old guy who doesn't see all that well. Shots #1 and #2 Were scope adjustment shots dialing in the point of impact for the new pellets. This is great performance from such a moderately priced gun with a non AO scope. This rifle shoots many pellets moderately well. It has a very nice trigger, making it easy to shoot accurately. The safety that does not reset itself is a feature I really like especially when target shooting. I like this almost as much as my gas piston Benjamin Prowler. This is probably the easiest to shoot spring powered rifle that I own. The recoil and torque are very moderate.

Things I liked: For the money-Great shooter right out of box.At 10 yards grouped all shots together was very happy. Easy cocking.Did clean barrel first. When attaching scope removed the rear rings only.Did not remove front rings.After attaching shot one inch high and vertically dead on. Trigger is good.Been collecting and shooting air guns for 40 years. As have said for the money good rifle.

Things I would have changed: Nothing to date.
