    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Light weight, quick aim, easy cocking, bright sites, nice trigger pull, muffled muzzle noise, looks cool, hard hitting.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope with this gun is useless. Either I got a defective one or Gamo has made the worst scope I've ever seen. But the gun sites without the scope quite well so I won't return it.

    What others should know:

    These guns have quite a vibration when shot due to the spring action. It has more kick than a .22 firearm.

    Things I liked:

    The gun is light, it cocks easily, it shoots 22 cal, it is accurate, quite, and it is powerful. It is just what I wanted. I am very happy with the purchase of this air gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would get the same gun with the nitro piston. It will cost me around $100 to have Pyramyd Air do the conversion, and I am seriously thinking of having this done. As soon as I can round up the money.

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    The rifle is light and rugged. The fixed sights are nice and bright. The rifle is easy to cock. With the right pellets, the rifle can form extremely tight nickel-quarter sized groups at 25 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rifle sounds like a creaky garage door spring while being cocked, and there seems to be a little wiggle on the rear fixed sight. The included scope is not great... I'd almost rather they just didn't include a scope at all and drop the price of the rifle a little more. When fired, the rifle vibrates a lot with a loud "TWANG". Perhaps the vibration is more noticeable due to the low weight? The vibration also makes this rifle somewhat finicky; A good artillery hold and consistency between shots are absolutely critical to form any kind of group. I find that even slight variations on how I pull the trigger and how I position cheek will cause flyers. Although it comes with a built-in suppressor, I feel like most of the noise from the rifle actually comes from the spring unloading in the body rather than the muzzle. Overall, the rifle gives the impression of cheapness due to the seams on its plastic body and its light weight, but the actual performance of the rifle is very good - Accurate and powerful. Don't let my negative comments fool you - This is actually one of my favorite air rifles.

    What others should know:

    I'm writing this review for the .22 caliber version of the rifle, with about 500 pellets through it so far. Compared to my Benji Trail NP .22, the bore on the Silent cat seems slightly larger. RWS Superdome pellets fit loosely in the barrel and did not form very good groups, but Crosman Premier Domed pellets fit very snugly and formed great groups.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This agile, lightweight <6-pound rifle looks great, feels great, loads with ease and delivers quietly stinging rounds at consistently high velocity. No need for PBA ammo. This rifle achieves far better accuracy with heavier ammo, e.g., H&N 10.2 grain copper-plated pellets; excellent. The included scope is entry-level okay, yet for the money and for the fun, the Silent Cat will give others a run.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing about the rifle, but packaging it with even a slightly higher-quality scope would be positive.

    Things I liked:

    The rifle I received was beautiful ( it was a rebuild) but I have large hands and I could not use the pistol grip because the thumb hole was to small Since I could not use it I gave it as a Christmas gift to a friend of mine whose hand fit the stock. He promptly mounted the scope and zeroed it at 30 yards. The last time I spoke with him he was punching holes through ¾” plywood and holding a pattern that was just a little larger than a dime. He already owned a Gamo Whisper in .177 cal. and said he cannot believe how much more power the 22 cal has.

    Things I would have changed:

    The thumb hole needs to be enlarged. If they ever do that or,if I could get it with a different stock,I will buy one for myself

    What others should know:

    As I said watch the thumb hole size. Other than that it appears to be a great rifle.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    The gun is light and is quiet! The neighbor next door has a new Silent Stalker Whisper which is a bit faster, but consequently, is noisier. It's pellet breaks the sound barrier so you still hear the "Crack" associated with that. The Silent Cat keeps the pellet just over 900fps but under the sound barrier......so, it's pretty quiet. Mine is .22cal. That's quite a bit of lead to fling at 900fps pretty silently.

    Things I would have changed:

    So far, I'm pleased with the performance & don't have any recommended changes.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    this gun is very good over all but gamo needs to fix the scope and trigger and for some reason its consistant for about 70 pellets or so and then way off could be the scope or mounts if anyone knows please comment

  • 4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    I got 2 of these REFURBISHED rifles and thought I was taking a risk for buying them "refurbished" but ... they were in really NEW condition... all the wraps, plastics, box, scope... everything NEW! The rifle itself is pretty ergonomic and lightweight... and the .22 caliber packs a lot of punch. Im extremely glad with what I bought, especially when I see them sold at local stores for $290-$320... I got it for around $180 in my mail.

    Things I would have changed:

    The iron sight (True Glow) looks awesome but is not holding the aim right. It has to be VERY unscrewed for my personal setting and Im having problems holding the aim at my calibration setting. I bought a boresight laser and marked my calibration setting at the sight's setting screw with a color marker... still hunting them down!

    What others should know:

    Buy GAMO!

    Things I liked:

    Just got this beast and it is one hell of a break barrel. I have a small, indoor range in my basement and promptly took this rifle downstairs, set it up and put it through the rounds, sighting it in. Came together pretty quickly and when my hand was steady, I was putting several pellets in dime size areas at 25 feet. This gun is significantly quieter than it's loud-mouth sister, the Big Cat. I'd liken it's pop to something like a nail gun. Nothing close to a firearm and pretty neighbor friendly.

    Things I would have changed:

    I'd like to think that an adjustable cheek plate would not have been too much to ask for but at below $200 bucks, maybe I am demanding a bit more than the price would warrant.

    What others should know:

    Beware of this guys power. I can't test the PPI but I the PBA pellets will punch through two sheets of 1/4" plywood and still ricochet of the wall (I should know).

    Things I would have changed:

    i would change the iron sights on it i dont like them because they just arent good for long ranges its hard to hit something at a long range with iron sights

    What others should know:

    that definitly they need to buy this gun it is fantastic and be sure to get the right oils and lubricants for it because you will want it to last a very long time because you will love it so much!!!!

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Very nice design, light weight, and easy to handle. Sights are laminated green which makes it easy to see and lineup. When I place the rifle on a bench rest I can put rounds in a quarter size hole at 25 yards. I brought the rifle to take out squirrels in my backyard, because they are tearing up my yard. I have dropped two squirrels with one shot each so it does have the power to kill them, plus quiet enough as to not alarm neighbors when I conducting target practice or taking varmints.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would change the scope and have it sit slightly higher, because the rear sites and front site obscure the bottom 25% of the site picture. I have shot 250 pellets through the rifle and it is accurate out to 25 yards, but small kick of the rifle causes the scope to move out of alignment.

    What others should know:

    None

    Things I liked:

    I love the stock, great design and is the main reason I bought it. Has the "silencer" on the muzzle which also looks cool. The gun was very accurate out of the box and the optic sights are great too. The gun is very accurate at 20-30 yards and been having fun and challenging myself out to 50 yards using the 2nd bottom mil dot on my scope. Fun recoil, nothing too crazy but satisfying. The safety trigger is easy to flip on and off. The gun has decent cocking effort, not the easiest, but definitely not bad. Overall a very well made gun that had a good weight to it. I like that it comes with 50 raptor pba pellets. I like that it also comes with a scope and mount rings but...

    Things I would have changed:

    ....I didnt bother to mount the included scope as it seemed very cheap and instead put on a leapers 3-9x40 scope with a 1pc mount. The gun isnt as quiet as I thought, even after several hundred shots I can hear the twang and vibration of the gun when firing. The trigger isnt the smoothest but I'm getting used to it. Add mounts to the stock for a sling.

    What others should know:

    The included raptor pba pellets are really loud as they crack the sound barrier. Fun to show off to friends but maybe not so much with neighbors. I use different lead pellets such as gamo tomahawks and crosman destroyers and they are quieter. This is my first pellet gun and I am very happy with it.

    Things I liked:

    Very light and very easy to cock. The overall presentation of the gun is good. The weak point is the scope. I enjoy shooting this gun and it has been very accurate for me. The spring is loud in my opinion but the report is muffled. Basically it is loud to the shooter but not anyone else.

    Things I would have changed:

    A better sccope. I can see the crosshair move around when I adjust the focus. Then I have to sight the scope in again. You can also see the front site thru the scope it just got used to it. But once it is set and loctite the screws it is consistent.

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Generally pleased with this air gun. Have been shooting a variety of pellets, but like the Gamo Tomahawk pellets, and Beeman Hollowpoint. Though the trigger is adjustable, I was rather disappointed at the hard pull which made accurate shots difficult and didn't bother trying to adjust it out. Instead replaced with a GRT III which made the trigger very close to the stock trigger on my Air Arms s410 in performance, and now it's quite nice and allows much better accuracy. Once the trigger was replaced, the accuracy has really improved in terms of tight shot patterns. But frankly it did ok with the stock trigger as long as I used a good artillery hold with some added stability such as sitting and using a leg for added support. Standing and shooting with the stock trigger was difficult as the hard pull made shot patterns dispersive. However, the light weight of the gun, surprisingly light, generally makes this gun easy to handle. Scope is good enough, way far from top of the line but good enough for this gun. Clear and easy to mount with a stop pin. Used loctite on the screws and after hundreds of shots have not had to adjust after the initial sighting in. Though did run about 250 pellets through it prior to sighting it in to get a reasonable break-in. The cocking effort seems much less than I've seen listed (anywhere from 28 ft/lbs to 38) and really seems more like 18-20. Any abled 10 year old can cock this weapon.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger. Price should be 10-20% lower to make it an excellent value.

    What others should know:

    Any able 10 year old can cock this weapon. I place the gun butt on my left thigh, hold just above the trigger guard with my left hand, with my right grasp the silencer and break it open and cock it. Really can do hundreds of cocks a day with no arm fatigue. For a springer the gun is relatively quiet. As far as speed of the pellets it must be as advertised, because the PBA pellets break the sound barrier (1116 ft/s) and it sounds like a rimfire .22 going off. It's certainly louder than my s410 which is a PCP and extremely quiet. The s410 is so quiet I missed a squirrel twice (today) and it still sat eating calmly, then I adjusted the scope, got a little stability as I leaned against a tree for the long range shot (about 60 yds) and took it out with the 3rd. While I wouldn't have taken such a long range shot with the Silent Cat, I also wouldn't have gotten more than one chance. Still, the gun is certainly more quiet than any rim-fire or center-fire weapon. The gun started out with some twang from the spring but that quickly dispersed. Also, there is a little bit of torque from the spring, and a tune would do this gun some justice. For target practice and light hunting I find myself grabbing this gun from time to time, but intend to gift it to a 12 year old buy.

    Things I liked:

    Lightweight and nice feeling in your hands. Easy to hold and balances well with an 'artillery hold' which is needed as this springer has noticeable kick. Have only had it about a week so far with only just over 100 pellets through it but the initial twang is fading and the trigger is getting a little better (but already ordered a GRT III and will update once it's installed). Very pleased with the accuracy and it's nice that in my hands this gun makes me a better shooter which is about the highest compliment you can give a gun. I don't have a chrono but the PBA Raptors break the sound barrier and it sounds like a .22 rimfire going off in the distance when you shoot one. Is it 1200 ft/sec, well I just don't know, but it's certainly faster than 1116 ft/sec and you know as you hear the crackling of the pellet as it flies. Very surprised at the ease of cocking this weapon. I think it's advertised at 30 ft/lb of force, but sure seems closer to 20. Maybe the construction makes the cocking effort appear less due to ease of levering. I park the butt pad on my left front thigh, hold the gun with my left hand just in front of the trigger guard and cock with my right and could do this hundreds of times a day with no fatigue and I am in no way a 'strong' person. Finally, it is called Silent Cat and that's great name as this gun is stealthy and quiet.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger. It's smoothed out some over the first hundred shots but just don't like it much. Also, for what you're getting, this guns seems 10%-20% overpriced. The barrell and silencer surface while it seems durable also seems to be made of cheaper material, rather than blued metal. But in terms of performance overall I wouldn't want anything there changed.

    What others should know:

    My only other airgun is an AirArms S410 and of course the Silent Cat is a lot different. Easy to zero in the scope and generally satisfied with the included scope, but then again you get what you pay for so don't expect a lot. Have been using Gamo Tomahawk pellets and except for the lead dust that accumulates on my fingers, have been very satisfied with the results. Purchased this as a hunting rifle for my son, but see myself using it quite a bit too.

    Things I liked:

    quality is excellent for a gun in this price range ! it is a little hold sensitive (this is my first springer) but once you learn to hold it correctly (as lightly as possible!) it is quite accurate! perfect size for me as i am only 5'4". surprisingly solid scope mounts! does NOT budge if mounted correctly!i am a 41 year old former marine and have been shooting airguns since i was 10 and was originally disappointed with the accuracy, but trust me, it's NOT the gun! it's really only a matter of learning the correct hold. i can now cover most 5 shot groups with a nickel at 110 feet after owning this gun for 2 weeks and approx 700 rds.

    Things I would have changed:

    the factory trigger is mediocre at best. adjusting it did almost nothing for it. i ordered a better trigger from charliethetuna.com after the first day of shooting! not a big fan of the factory scope, although it works well( i personally prefer a min of 3x9x40 but am using a centerpoint 4x16x40)

    What others should know:

    2 things : if this is your first springer, watch some videos on hold sensitive guns, cause this one is!! also was told by pyramid that up to a 44 objective would fit on the factory mounts and it does not! my 4x16x40 would not clear so i ordered a VERY nice 1 piece mount for under 20 bucks ! also this gun LOVES the gamo match 7.71 gr wadcutters!
