Awesome power is what you need to hunt successfully, and the Gamo Big Cat 1250 has it!

From the all-weather synthetic stock to the bull barrel, these rifles are bound to please any shooter who aims to take game. For more precise shooting and to get the most accuracy from the gun, our Big Cat comes with an upgraded 3-9x40 scope and mount.   

The Monte Carlo buttstock has a raised cheekpiece on each side, making this gun ideal for right- or left-handed shooters. It also has the Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) to reduce felt recoil. Shoot either lead pellets or PBA ammo to attain your hunting goals. Of course, you don't have to hunt with the Big Cat. These are fun plinkers and will give you hours of shooting pleasure.

Your Gamo Big Cat may come with a 1-piece mount or a 2-piece mount. Gamo uses them interchangeably. Both types will securely hold your scope in place.

Comes with upgraded 3-9x40 scope.

Things I liked: The lightness in weight. Feels well balanced. Easy to hold and shoot. Price. Good medium power.

Things I would have changed: Nothing. I knew how it was equipped when I purchased this.

What others should know: This Big Cat 1250 is .177 caliber. Bought this rifle abou 3 years ago, still equipped as bought. Very accurate. Five shots with Crosman Premier Hollow Points 7.90 grains averaged 899 fps. Five shots with Crosman Premier Point Hunting 7.40 grains averaged 942 fps. Five shots with Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Domes 10.50 grains averaged 751 fps. The weather temperature was 45 degrees at 200 feet above sea level. Consistently hitting 2 and 3 inch targets easily, with room to spare, from 80 and 90 foot distances. For the 10.50 Ultra Magnums I do have to make about 2-3 clicks elevation adjustments or 1 mildot to compensate for the heavier grain weight. No flyers, no deformed pellets. I am not concerned about weighing and grouping pellets that are maybe off by a 1/10 of a grain. I take the manufacturers claims. As I stated above this air rifle is equipped with what was in the box as purchased. No loc-tire, I just check all screws before shooting. I recommend this rifle. Woodys World.

Things I liked: Weight and feel of rifle, accuracy

Things I would have changed: Scope quality, trigger pull

What others should know: Extremely pleased with purchase, the value for dollar is great! I am making quarter size groupings at 30 yards now that break in period is done. I have been using crosman pellets as the Gamo seams to like them better than their own for consistent shots. Groupings are made from a bench but I can consistently stay tight at a standing position. Trigger pull is a little heavy but getting used to it. Scope as always could be better but for the money, this gun is awesome,

Things I liked: Accuracy, Weight, Length, Easy to shoot

Things I would have changed: Trigger (as most air rifles) Iron Sites

What others should know: This really is a good shooter. I did not purchase it from Pyramyd Air, because I found a clearance sale somewhere else. This .177 is the most accurate Rifle I have shot thus far. I was shooting dime size groups at 25 yards. No joke. I own a Umarex Octane, a Gamo Whisper Fusion Elite, a Walther Terrus, and a cheaper Crosman Air rifle. This has the accuracy of the Walther Terrus. Once you get use to the trigger pull (which really isn't that bad for such a cheap rifle) you will be driving nails with this gun. I got mine is .177 and I am currently shooting H&N Baracuda Match 4.50 head size, 10 grain pellets. This gun would literally almost be perfect, with an upgraded trigger. Gamo have always been great air rifles in my experience.

  • Blake from USA asked:

    What is the energy of the .22 version of this?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Around 20 FPE with most pellets

  • Joe from USA asked:

    I have a Gamo Big Cat 1200 that I am trying to find the most accurate pellet for. I have put a quality scope and one piece base on it. Now I am using Cabelas 10.5 gr ultra magnum pellets but am not happy with the accuracy, especially on the first shot when it counts while hunting with it.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I have three Gamos in .177 and they all like and are very accurate with the Crosman Premiers 10.5 grain ultra magnum.

  • Ulyssew from USA asked:

    Can you get any extra mounts for this gun like for iron sight lasers or flashlights

    • Stanley from USA:

      There are mounts available lasers and flashlights but doubtful if iron sights could be made to fit?
