Things I liked: Super looks and wood stock. Puts 5 on a dime @ 10 meters and lethal fps. Good scope if you know how to properly mount and adjust one, but even the open sights work well with my "vintage" eyes!
Things I would have changed: The trigger is crisp but heavy. Adjustable pull would render this rifle competitive!
What others should know: Cocking weight is for adults. ALL break-barrels should have an end-of-session wipe-down with a silicone cloth to remove corrosive hand oils, and a needle-oiler will help with the many joints and visible seals. Bloomfield did it again!
Things I liked: Whats not to like. Quiet, powerful, affordable, accurate. Dead quiet with gamo red fire, I guess they dont break the sound barrier.
Things I would have changed: For the price nothing, the trigger is sort of a stinker but still doesnt bother my shots.
What others should know: Rifles are accurate, scopes are accurate. Blame yourself and practice more if yours isnt. Make sure you hold is consistent, and learn how to deal with Parallax. Pick a pellet and stick with it. I bought this for squirrels, in city limits, best money and most useful gun I have.
Things I liked: First. Can we all agree that, other than the odd outlier that sending and charging for a scope with these break barrels is a scam for new shooters to fall into? Two bug busters met their demise on this gun. The scopes that come with these guns - in review after review - are throw away items. That being said my Vantage shot way low no matter what I did. Change ammo, different bug buster scope, back to original etc with ridiculous hold over. Now this sounds counter intuitive but on a whim, after reading a review here I bought a.22 18.21 grain and bingo. I think the skirt is tighter and now nothing is wasted pushing them down the barrel. Has anyone else had this problem with low shooting p.o.i.? And again, I'm talking turning the back sight turret up until it's just about to fall off then monkeying around with a ridiculous hold over with the scope. But then we're back to breaking scopes again. Advise ??? And thanks ALL for the reviews and advise throughout the years given here!!!
Things I would have changed: Stop sending trash scopes on these guns. I tried different ring heights etc to no avail. Always a hold over that I never ran into with any of my springers before.
What others should know: I love this gun (after changing the trigger of course) now but the warnings are those I stated above. Maybe I got an outlier, who knows. But the scope issue is very bothersome if not un-ethical. Is there a scope that is reliable "over time" for springers and/or nitro pistons?

Is the trigger adjustable??? softer / harder setting
It's really a single stage that has a false stage in front of it. So what feels like the first stage is not actually doing anything inside at all, it's just the trigger blade moving. If you took the spring off the trigger it would just flop around. When you feel what people think is stage two it's just the trigger actually making contact with the sear and doing something. The screw adjustment on it simply moves the sear a bit so the overlap is less. Hard to explain in text but it doesn't do a whole lot. And it's still just as hard to pull. To lighten pull you need to lighten or remove the aforementioned trigger spring, which is rather stiff. If you want a two stage trigger, which I highly recommend, you need to mod the one in it or buy an aftermarket one already done.
2-stage adjustable trigger
can i shoot heavy gamo whisper pellets in this gun?
Mine actually prefers the Crosman Premier round nose 10.5gr
Yes you can but I'd get H&N Barracuda Match instead, or JSB 10.34gr or Crosman Premier round nose 10.5gr, any of which are much cheaper and no doubt much better quality. It's the pellets weight that make the gun quieter, not some gimmick Gamo claims.
What is the difference between the crosman vantage np and the remington vantage np ???
Same gun just a license agreement with Crosman & Remington.
