Gamo's Recon is an ideal entry-level breakbarrel spring rifle suitable for younger or smaller shooters (with adult supervision). You can use this gun to teach the basics of shooting, target shooting, plinking, hitting spinners and more.

The rifle doesn't have sights, but it does come with a 4x20mm scope (unmounted). The fluted bull barrel will make this rifle the envy of your friends. The cool thumbhole stock is made from an all-weather black synthetic and sports a raised cheekpiece on both sides, making this rifle truly ambidextrous. When you cock the rifle, an anti-beartrap mechanism automatically engages to protect your fingers.

Things I liked: I like the fit and thumbhole grip. This rifle is perfect for backyard target/plinking. I have ordered the "scope creep stop" from Gamo, it is a creeper for sure. I like the polymer or plastic covered barrel and the rifle is very accurate.

Things I would have changed: I would smooth out the spring vibration when you shoot the gun, however you do get used to it after awhile. Better quality scope needed with scope stop included.

What others should know: This is not the cheaperst plinker out there but its built good & tough should last a long time.

Things I liked: Fits my four sons ages 7 to 12 very well as far as size and proportions. Cocking pressure is well within all their capabilities too. Makes it much easier on Dad during a shooting session.Has greater accuracy with the heavier pellets than I anticipated. My sons consistantly hit nickle sized targets at 30 to 40 feet.

Things I would have changed: Scopes on both rifles I purchased moved back on the rails to the point of the rear ring coming completely off the top rail after pushing the rear plastic cover off. I fixed this by upsetting some of the dovetail steel with a center punch. So far this has fixed the problem.

What others should know: My kids were very excited to have a pellet rifle that they could handle and that fit them well, especially after they were able to knock down targets regularly.

Things I liked: I got this one to replace the Crosman Raven I recently got for my daughter...I just did not trust the plastic trigger group on the Crosman in terms of longevity. I like that the Recon has a metal trigger group, much smoother break of the barrel, and stock is SO much more ergonomic than the Raven. The Recon is an accurate rifle, and I managed to hit a soda can at about 35-40yds. away with a different scope, not the one that came with it.

Things I would have changed: The scope that comes with the Recon. It has a "TV screen" shape when viewed through the scope! I would also like to see a scope stop included with this rifle. Even though the FPS is not the fastest, the vibration definitely causes scope movement.

What others should know: For me anyway, I have found the Recon to be finicky in terms of where you grip the rifle. I found that grabbing the very front and pulling into your shoulder with a straight a pull as possible will result in great accuracy. Lotta trigger creep, but I am happy it is metal! (FWIW, I do not think the trigger is adjustable).
