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.

  • Diana from USA asked:

    How loud is it? Is it backyard friendly?

    • Tyler from USA:

      That depends on your backyard. It's borderline.

  • 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.

    • John from USA:

      It all depends on how good you are. Crosman Premiers 10.5 grains would be the heaviest I would use. I have had great shooting and hunting success with the Crosman Premier 7.9 grains. Shot and killed a large groundhog that came within about 20 feet of my deck using Crosman Premier pointed hunting pellets. Woodys World.

    • 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.
