Things I liked:

This gun is incredibly accurate out to 30 yards. Put on an inexpensive scope and sighted it in, and the first 40 pellets made a large rectangular hole about 1/2 inch by 3/4 inch that started just above the the bull, and ended just below (12 yard distance shooting in my shop) It very consistently dropped just a bit over time, as the pressure went lower. Very predictably. It isn't very pellet picky and likes the inexpensive Crossman premiers. Refilling with the included hand pump is very easy up to about 190 bar. The last 10 bar what I would call medium difficulty at worst. It's easily hand pump friendly. This is a great First PCP for an adult, and a REALLY good pellet rifle for a youth/starter gun.

Things I would have changed:

The location and size/design of the pressure gauge. I am at the age where I need readers,and the size of the gauge makes it hard to read. Also looking down the barrel to read it is a bit disconcerting. I don't think i would change much, as it would ruin the value of the gun

What others should know:

I just got this gun, and I love it. However, i am already looking at the JTS airacuda as a hand pump friendly upgrade. As an adult, this gun will tease you into wanting more. 30 yards is just not enough.

    Things I liked:

    Lightweight, quiet and accurate with BSA 3x9 scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    The charging handle locking mechanism, not a deal breaker but takes some getting used to.

    What others should know:

    Air Venturi G9 is a great combo & core/ shoulder workout! When loading your pellet: Use a firm, consistent push in and up with your thumb.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent first pcp and pump bundle. I paid for the $10 for 10, for peace of mind. Came filled upped and ready to go. It is avg 767 with 11.9 gr pellets. Out of the box accuracy was on point. Was popping cans at 20 yards with no need of touching sights. Very very quiet with pellets above 15 gr. The report of pellets hitting the can is louder than the rifle firing. But even using chcp 14.3 gr or Gamo red fire still neighbor hood quite during the day. You can get about 50 shots before refilling. Ordered a cheap scope not in yet, and feel the rifle will shoot better than me. All in all I feel like it is a great rifle with pump, especially for someone getting into pcp on a budget. I bought it to see if I will enjoy shooting pcp and I like it better the brake barrels. This trigger is definitely different than what Gamo uses on their brake barrels. Nice light pull and first stage pull is just right for me. Oh yeah I got it on the Black Friday sale with 12% off what a great deal.

    Things I would have changed:

    Charging handle. You have to make sure it locks in place. But I knew that after watching several reviews. I had a few missed lock in place and you can tell cause the rifle shoots a little louder.

    What others should know:

    Like others the pump well, work you out? I was having a bad vacuum pull/heavy pull when pulling up on the handle. I looked over the troubleshoots and it was issues #3. It said the check valve need cleaning. I took it apart following figure 7-3 and it was filled with oil. Cleaned it out and now pulls up just fine with ease. Still a workout going down but that’s to be expected. Will be buying a large air tank since I live a a few blocks from a scuba diving store. They can fill to 4500 and it must be DOT approved. I live in Texas on the coast and the hand pump will wear me out in the field during the summer. I also feel the electric pumps won’t like the heat as well.

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP and this one is fantastic! Very quiet and accurate. It's a great deal because during I'm doing pest control at short distances - 15 -30 yards. We spot rats in our backyard from time to time and this rifle is perfect. I wish I had consulted with Pyramyd before I went on the journey for a good pest control gun. The .22 is what was recommended and I look forward to laying down the law this summer.

    Things I would have changed:

    The build is not as good as the Gamo Viper Express air shotgun I own. The quality of the plastic is fine but it's not quite as finished. The air gauge, as noted by other reviews, is in a bad location so you have to avoid staring down the barrel of the gun!

    What others should know:

    I would highly recommend the 10 shots for $10 service. It's worth the piece of mind and also it will come with some air in the reserve - initial pumping much easier.

    Things I liked:

    It is quieter than I expected. The trigger is very smooth. Looks a bit bulky (both stock and barrel) but, is surprisingly light weight. During the day the sights light up real nice and are very easy to see. Very accurate with 10 grain pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have many firearms but, this is my first PCP Air rifle so can't say much. No major complaints yet except maybe ... throw in a spare magazine (it only comes with one).

    What others should know:

    The pump will give you one heck of a workout. After filling it up for the fourth time it sprung an air leak at the base of the fill probe. After checking the prob I noticed that it could still be tightened almost another quarter turn. Tightened it up and the air leak stopped. Went ahead and ordered some spare O-rings for the probe just in case. Working fine now. If it wasn't for the loose fill probe (which could become a hassle of sending it back for repairs for some people) I would have given it the five stars.

    Things I liked:

    I love this gun! It's light weight, SUPER QUIET, and dead-on accurate. I've found it works best with H&N Barracuda 18grn pellets. At this point I've put around 500 shots through it and have found that it shoots very consistently. I have shot it both with and without a scope and found that the open sights it comes with are superb. I've been shooting airguns for over 40 years and this is my first pcp and I'm hooked. The hand pump takes a lot more work than I was expecting but it's manageable if you pace yourself. The bolt takes a bit of getting used to but works well. As advertised, you can get up to 60 shots from a single fill, though I prefer to keep the pressure at least 10% below max and refill before dropping out of the green arc...this still gets me 40+ very consistent shots. If you're considering this as an option for breaking into the PCP world or if you just want a solid shooter for plinking and light pest control, I highly recommend this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    First, the pressure gauge is located under the barrel and you have to put your head in front of the muzzle to read it. I'd prefer if the gauge could be read from the side for safety reasons. The scope rail is an 11mm design and is made of plastic. Further, the seam where the receiver is joined together runs right under the left side of the scope mount. This makes it more flexible than it should be. It doesn't seem to make a difference when using a lightweight scope, but when I put a heavier scope with a flashlight (mounted on the side of the scope) the weight of the light changed the zero. So, if I sighted it in with the light off, then mounted the light, the crosshairs would be off in the direction of the light. My solution was to use zip ties to attach a light mount the light to the barrel shroud, which worked great (and looks cleaner than you're imaging). That aside, I'm still giving this gun 5 stars all the way because of the combination of features and value.

    What others should know:

    The pump is a beast. It weighs two pounds more than the gun itself. I wasn't expecting that. It's called a "hand pump" but its more of a "full body vertical rowing machine." Its a serious workout. I'm fairly athletic and it takes me 3-5 minutes to bring bring the gun up to within 10% of max pressure. Still, its a great alternative to a $500 electric pump, especially if you're just getting into PCP airguns. Important note: My pump seemed to have a break-in period. After the first few refills the pump started getting difficult...in my case it was hard to lift up for the first stage. After watching a couple of youtube videos I decided to disassemble and clean it. Sure enough the small check valves were gummed up with dirty grease...likely caused by the new components wearing against each other and removing small burs/defects, etc.. After cleaning and reassembly it works fine. I imagine this will be a common issue, so if it happens to you, just jump on youtube for instructions.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased the Gamo Arrow rifle based upon GTA and You Tube reviews. It is the perfect beginners introduction to PCP airguns. I chose .177 caliber for hopefully quieter backyard shooting. Really liked the included fiber optic open sights. A classy touch, not a cheap after thought. Easy and sure adjustment. My first shots were at 10 yards to sight in. Five shots later, perfect zero. Moving back to 50', shot 3 magazines with good grouping. Super quiet. No disappointments...

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    My overall rating would be 5 stars. However, using the pump and all of my 183 lbs, to pump up, I was only able to fill to 1750 psi. Too much like work!!.. I'll keep the pump for backup though.

    Things I liked:

    For this price point this is a really fun, accurate,and smooth operator. Consistently shoots 10 shot sub moa groups at 25yards.. Stuck a $50 cvlife 4-16x44 scope on it and it was game on. I'm very limited for range in my back yard (25 yds, that's it) but I'm quite confident it will maintain accuracy at 50 and out.

    Things I would have changed:

    relocate or extend the fill fitting. My fat fingers have trouble getting the collar on the quick k connect to engage and lock on.

    What others should know:

    I think if you just want a back hard plinker and some minor close quarters pest control, you can't go wrong for$220.

    Things I liked:

    QUIET .. i mean SILENT is a better word. Fairly accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    As a entry level PCP i feel this gun and power level is best suited as a 177. The cocking lever gets sticky at times. More power but. . . .thoughts next box.

    What others should know:

    I bought the Arrow by mistake .. dont ask haha. Was looking at the Urban. Even bought a tin of 500 JDS 18’s. Great starter gun but owning both Gamo Magnum BB’s in 177/22, the arrow seems anemic. The magnums hit HARD. With that said Gamo sells the Urban so i dont see them doing anything with the Arrow.

    Things I liked:

    I like pretty much everything about my Gamo Arrow. Feels good in the hands - Is more accurate than I was expecting using .22 H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme - The Air Venturi G9 pump gets the job done and is a great value in the package deal. I've got several break-barrel guns but see myself buying more PCP's in the future. This one will get you hooked.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much other than a larger tank pressure gauge face. It's a little hard to read. It would also be great to see a scope option with this package. Cocking mechanism is plastic and I'd prefer metal, for long term use.

    What others should know:

    G9 pump will give you a workout. Can someone please design a $200 compressor? ;)
