The .177 caliber Air Venturi AV 10 Compact Target pistol is Air Venturi's entry into the field of top-level match air pistols. It is ideal for ten-meter competition and has many of the features usually found in competition air pistols costing hundreds of dollars more. It has a competition-grade rifled steel barrel, fully adjustable rear sight and finely adjustable match trigger. Its overall length is a well balanced 12.6" and weighs 1.94 lbs. The single-stroke pneumatic power plant of the Compact generates 400 fps and is also recoil and vibration free enhancing this pistol's pinpoint precision even further. It is truly a world-class performer with a down-to-earth price. Formally branded as Gamo, but Air Venturi is now the exclusive importer for this item.

The Compact has an anatomical walnut target grip with adjustable palm shelf and lots of stippling for firm control.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Good entry level 10meter pistol
June 10, 2016
Call it whatever, it's a Gamo and I have used them in postal matches. i am not a fan of mixed metal/resin platforms. I love a quiet pistol. This one isn't. But it is a good platform for target practice and the price is right.
Pros:
Grips can be filed to shape
Cons:
Not heavy enough

Don't waste your money

I probably scored this higher than it deserves. Maybe for a beginner it would be ok. If you are serious about target shooting buy a FAS 6004, you get what you pay for.
Pros:
Great boat anchor. I bought it for my wife and I have a FAS. I am trying to return the Gamo and will purchase another FAS for her.
Cons:
Very heavy trigger. Tried to adjust it but the adjustment screw was stripped. Sights don't show you what direction you are making adjustments. Grip is very blocky. Very difficult to load. Line of sight is high compared to the FAS. Plastic construction, I tried several different pellets and it didn't make any difference on accuracy. I had several of the game pellets that came with the gun that would even shoot out of the gun. I had to push them out with a cleaning rod.

Gamo Compact Target Pistol .177
August 20, 2011
I bought this pistol about years ago. I used it for a year or two and then put it away. It was in its case in a closet. I forgot about it until a few months ago. I was looking for something and came across it sitting behind some stuff. I took it out of its case and setup a cardboard box down the hallway, about thirty feet. I used a quarter to draw a circle on the box for a target. From a rest, I put 5 shots(Beeman hollow point pellets) into that circle. Totally Amazing!

Bought this pistol so I could practice in my backyard. Set up bench with sand bags to sight in at 10 yards. Out of the box, 5 shots, one ragged hole. Repeated several times. Unbelievable!

Target Pistol

Once you sight it in. Right on! Love the grip,sanded it down a bit to suit my hand. adj. trigger is a big +. Not a fast loader , shoots most .177 ammo- not all. Quiet and looks mean....

Pretty good

Couple of things to mention. They should list that a can of 250 pellets and a plastic case is included. I purchased a case for no reason. The documents on GAMO site mentioned a safety this model pistol has no saftey. If you have large hands, need a lot of adjustment on palm shelf ( shaving ) for a comfortable grip. Otherwise dead on after break in. The customer service from Air Gun Depot is five star.

Q&A
By larry Isaacs from Alma, Arkansas on December 19, 2011
It is possible to use GAMO PBA non lead ammo? What speed increase is possible, if any?

Thanks
By Staff on January 9, 2012

Answer:
The Gamo PBA Raptor pellets are rated to Increase Velocity 25% (On guns whose speed is rated with normal lead pellets)
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012

Answer:
Yes you can use the PBA, and it should increase the fps by at least 50.

By Mike Miller from Dodge City, KS on July 15, 2012
Is this grooved for adding optical sights?
