Great first gun
December 5, 2012
Overall good/powerful gun. Accurate as can be with the right scope and it's very easy to use. The standard scope this gun is issued with is not the best but for a starter it's decent.
Pros:
Accurate Easy to use Not to loud Good for pest control
Cons:
Scope Mounting rail

Great Adult Air-Rifle.
October 4, 2012
I have owned this rifle for about 5 years. The scope has always been dead on. It is tricky to zero it, but when you do, it's solid. The laser and flashlight are crud. The laser drifts and the only way I can recalibrate it is going through the scope. I also removed the scope and used it on my Sig 522 and had 1/4 inch groups at 100 yards. I removed the scope, added my tactical scope, and after a few hundred rounds, and added it again and it still held PERFECT groups. This is a great air rifle. I have not needed to repair anything after 5 years and it still pumps out 1200 fps. Definitely a good buy for the low buck.
Pros:
Scope Quality Look Quality Gamo
Cons:
Mounting bracket is low grade aluminum.

Amazing air rifle!
November 19, 2011
This was my first "Adult Airgun" and I am impressed. After mounting the scope and bore sighting it, I set up the target holder at 50 ft. and proceeded to fine tune the scope. First shot was 1/2" low and 1/2" left. Made the adjustment and then put five shots inside the 9 ring. This is the most accurate and powerful air gun I have ever shot. Easy to cock, easy to load and well balanced. Now, bring on those pecan stealing crows!
Pros:
I like the looks, feel, and balance.
Cons:
I haven't found anything I don't like.

Gamo Varmit Hunter
July 28, 2011
This is a solid gun, here is the thing with Gamo. The power plant is the same on all the break barrels, big cat, whisper, hunter etc. Some have said the trigger is not fixable which is incorrect. Check Charliedatuna.com you will find what you need. As you shoot the factory trigger will wear in, don't even think about accuracy until around 1,000 rounds give or take a few hundred. I have many springers and they are very good ONCE you learn them. Also Crosman Nitro pistons retro kits work in these as well. Pyramid air sells them.

Gamo Varmint Hunter 1200 fps .177 cal. Tactical Air Rifle w/Scope, Laser, & Light
June 15, 2011
I removed the Laser & Light from the Scope mount because they are Illegal in OK for hunting. I did order the Scope Stop from Gamo as this is a necessary item that needs to be included with the Scope. Nice pellet rifle. It should come with iron sights though. Very pleased.

... and cleaning up
April 7, 2011
have had this gun for about 4 months now, and have removed more than 25 squirrels from my urban yard. The gun is a little louder than I'd like, but most of my shots are from inside through a cracked window, so I don't think the neighbors can really hear. The scope needs adjustment after 30-40 shots and the laser does not hold more than a few shots. Haven't used the flashlight at all.

My boyfriend has been wanting a scope and laser pellet gun for over a year. And for the last year I have been searching for the perfect one. I seriously have looked at so many other web sites, and stores. When I gave him the gun he was sooo happy he just lit up like a little kid. Since then he and all of his friends have had so much fun with it. He is so happy with it. I would definantly recommend this to anyone.

VERY STRONG
October 14, 2010
I havent even fired a shot wit this gun yet,but however when testing the power of the rifle it was incredible.From all the reviews i read looks like all i need is a new scope which seems logical becuz when putting on the scope it did not sit flush on the rail for some reason.The laser an flash light are just a bonus,unless i could use them on a different scope.With all that said its worth the money an better than a cheap wallmart gun.

I'd essentially agree with Mike L, with a couple differences. After reading his comments, I rechecked my laser (I probably treat my weapons better than he does his :) ). It stayed on target after being smacked around some. Maybe he got a loose one? I use Predator Polymag PBA pellets. These fit the chamber nicely, and I get

Gamo Varmint Hunter
July 28, 2010
bought this rifle for my wife. Here are a few do-dads you may, or may not find interesting. 1. It's fairly hard to cock for a female. 2. The "fluted heavy barrel" is nothing more than a standard barrel with some cool looking plastic on the outside. It is NOT a heavy barreled rifle! 3. Who needs a flashlight on the scope? 4. The laser will not hold a zero no matter what you do. Go ahead and zero in, take note of the "red dot on crosshair", then lightly tap the laser. Take another look...all that time you spent zeroing the laser was a waste. But hey, all the gadgets on the scope might earn you some coolness points. Whatever... 5. I've tried two types of pellets through this gun so far: Crosman Destroyers and the Gamo Raptors that came with it. The Destroyers fit very loosely in the "chamber". I get variations in groups with this pellet. The Raptor fits very snuggly. It's groups are somewhat tighter. I'm a distinguished USMC marksman, take my word when I say this rifle will deliver drastically different groups with different pellets. Like a match rifle, find the pellet that shoots the best group for your rifle. 6. The trigger leaves a lot to be desired by my standards. And since this has the plastic assembly, it can't be replaced by a high performance trigger. Summary: All said, it's a pretty good air rifle for the price. I've killed rabbits, birds and a few other rodents with ease. It would be a much better rifle with a quality scope instead of the kid's scope that comes with it.

great gun & fun
December 28, 2009
i bought this gun christmas 2009 (a few days ago). i am 62 years old and haven't had a pellet/bb gun in over 50 years. WOW! i had read most reviews & i got my hands on this gun the next day at a bass pro shop. the pictures just don't do this gun justice! this is a beautiful weapon and powerful,accurate. i have a friend that's a gunsmith and he set it up for me. i am blind in my master eye but i can put the crosshairs on a target. i get nickel size groups at 25 yds! the lazer & light is like getting gravy on your potatoes. both work great for me. i enjoy setting up targets in a dark room and shooting with the flashlight/scope or flashlight/laser! the price on the website was cheaper but when i had this beauty in my hands i just had to have it right then! if your thinking of buying a .177 pellet gun i would recommend looking at this one. i love this thing & i'll be buying more air rifles & pistols to add to my collection! the technology today has exponentially exceeded any pellet gun of 50 years ago. I'm @ a loss for words! LOL BUY IT you wont be dissapointed.

Great Air Rifle
October 18, 2009
This gun is great had it for 3 months and have already killed 1 Racoon, 1 Possum, 2 Squirrels and numerus birds . Shoots very well with the Crosman Premier Hollow Points but killed a squirrel at 40 yards with Crosman Pointed Pellets. I love the break barrel very simple compared 2 the numatic air rifles. Dont like the scope, not consistent. Changed to a 4-20 scope because of close range shooting and never missed yet. Shoots tight groupsat 20 yards. Highly Recomend this gun to avid airgun hunters.

cons and proz
June 7, 2009
cons: the scope goes back and unzeroes itself after every 100 shots. it also wears a little hole in the gun. its loud so you cant use it in a neighborhood. the scope is basically garbage youll need a 3-9x42 scope not a 4x32. pressure bads are a joke they dont stick. proz: this gun packs a very large punch easilly can kill pests and small game even some larger game like foxes. the scope it came with though not a god one is very easy to sight in. it feels just like a realy rifle and i guarantee that the gun wont break its built very solidy. and the recoil is just amazing it makes it feel like a real gun!!! all together i give it a four star because it really is just an amazing gun get it to completely understand

GOOD GUN FOR THE $
May 31, 2009
ITS A GREAT ACURATE RIFLE. MY FIRST ONE BROKE IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU CALL GAMO AND SEND IT BACK, I DID AND THEY SENT ME A NEW ONE I DONT KNOW IF IT APPLIES TO ALL BUT I WAS VERY SATIFIED WITH THEIR SERVICE. THE SCOPE CREEPS BACK ALOT SO IT WILL NOT STAY ON ZERO. I WILL BE PURCHASING THE SCOPE BACKSTOP FOR IT SINCE IT STARTS CREEPING AFTER ABOUT 50 SHOTS OR SO. OVERALL TRUST ME IT IS A GREAT TOY FOR THE MONEY. I SHOOT QUAIL WITH IT MORE THAN I USE MY OVER AND UNDER WHICH COSTS 10 TIMES MORE. MY LABRADOR LIKES IT MORE TOO SO BUY ONE AND START HAVING FUN IN MORE PLACES THAT YOU COULD NEVER SHOOT A FIREARM IN.

great gun, dont know about scope
December 31, 2008
This gun is great. it looks sharp and is powerful enough to blow huge holes in my 1/2" wood backstop. dont worry about noise, i live in a developement and it doesnt bother my neighbors, unless u dryfire it(not reccomended, bad 4 springers) be sure to clean the barrel before u fire it. It deiseled on me first time. sparks flew out the barrel due to flammable grease in it. now for the scope. Hmm. it feels a little more solid tham it looks. i tryed sighting in but the scope slipped through the rings. it came with different mounts than shown in the picture, and no scope stop. the mounts i got with it are much better than in the picture: they each have 2 screws for the rail and 4 screws on the tube part, each having 6 screws total, and the back one had a stop pin in it. it probably slipped due to oil i accedentally got on it. i wiped the oil off, and tightened the mounts alot more, and problem solved. u will have to adjust the laser every few hundred shots, it just wont hold zero, the flashlight is good, but it hardly fits on the scope. should come with a higher power scope. accurate enough to hit soda cans at 50-75 yards. just be sure u have a place to fire it: i use it in a 20-acre abandoned lot that used to be a nursury. people use it as a junk dump now. be careful! this thing could kill a man with good shot placement! make sure u have a proper backstop.(at least 1" plywood or a big hill)

December 26, 2008
this is the most incredible gun i have ever shot i have killed many squirrels with it doves and rabbits.i only use PBA raptor pellets. the farthest kill i have shot is about 70 yards this gun although is loud,it is very very accurate. just be careful not to keep it cocked longer then 2hours because it will decrease in fps.but if you do not over cock it you can hit a nickle at at least 30 yards. it may seem expensive but it is worth it if u are varmit or small game hunting with it.

August 21, 2008
great durable gun but kind of slow use because its single shot so you have to load in a new pellet every time u shoot and also if u put in the balls the speed decreses to 580 fps the big speed is just for the pointed pellets and i would say this is a good starter rifle very accurate so u never have to miss a shot but i really think this is a great for kids to learn how to use air rifle and if u were shooting someone the time to cock load a new butt the put the barrel in the right positon the aim they would easy get away but a great target shhoting gun

Great Gun
August 20, 2008
Bought this gun not to long ago, 8/14/08. Even though this is a really powerful gun, I use it in my backyard. The PBA ammo that comes with it hits hard, has great penetration, and has good accuracy. Once you install the scope, and sight it in (if needed), then you're ready to have lots of fun. It's fairly easy to load, and fun to shoot. I've shot it at a half-dollar which made a huge dent, some soda cans which explode when you hit them, and other things I could find around the house. It is actually really fun and safe to use this gun in the backyard, which is about 50 feet from the shooter to the target. Also, I enjoy shooting it longer distances. The furthest shooting distance I can get is from an open window inside the house to the target outside is about 200 feet or so. Even when you up the distance, the gun keeps its accuracy and power. I haven't tried to shoot any pests/animals yet, but I know the gun would do it's job. This gun is good for target shooting, and hunting small game. Even the PBA ammo is great for target shooting. I would consider the noise level as comfortable for inside shooting, and good for outside shooting. The only bad part about inside shooting is (I've only tried the PBA ammo) that the end of the barrel smokes after you fire it sometimes, giving the room a bad odor that doesn't last too long, though. This gun is a good buy for the money, and is a great pick for any age.

Solid Performer
June 13, 2008
Bought this gun to clear pigeons that had been roosting on my roof and eves. Sighted it in at 30 feet and could easily shoot smaller than dime size groups with soft hollow point pellets. Plenty of punch--even at 30 feet the soft hollow-points usually go all the way through a pigeon. The torch light has been invaluable for taking pigeons out at night up in the eves. Have only used the laser a small amount but seems to work fine. After about 30 shots of the soft-lead pellets, shots started to wander off aim-point by about half an inch at 30 feet, but after a good barrel cleaning they were back to spot-on. Haven't tried the harder pellets yet.

BEST GUN ON EARTH
June 1, 2008
I have had this gun for about a year and it is the best air gun i have ever seen. I can easily hit penny size targets from at least one hundred yards away. And this gun is so powerful that I used a domed crossman pellet and completely blew a hole through a metal spoon from about 10 yards away!

May 25, 2008
This air rifle is well worth the price. After getting mine sighted in, I can knock a golf ball off a fence post, over and over, at 80 ft. away. Since this is my first spring type air rifle, I found that it took some getting used to. Definitely very different from a firearm. The quality of the rifle is excellent, and the delivery time was only a few days. The only problem I've had, is the velcro sticky tape, for the laser and light switches, won't stay stuck to the stock. Not a big deal. Oh, and this rifle is just as effective after dark when propertly sighted in. I love it. If you have an actual varmint/damage problem, this will solve it.

This is an amazing gun. I've already killed two rabbits, 8 doves, 4 squirrels, and a few other birds. The scope and optics are very accurate. I killed both rabbits with my laser sight. One thing that surprised me was that the torch light works very well. A lot of Illumination comes out of that tiny light. This gun has plenty of power and is great for small game and pest control. Pretty loud for suburban areas.

March 18, 2008
The varmint hunter is a highly accurate rifle once i replaced the stock trigger with the GRT III trigger. I hate the plastic barrel but it doesnt effect the accuracy this rifle will cut holes once you learn to shoot it. Price is a lil steep the crosman Storm Xt is half the price and seems to shoot harder and also can be modified with the after market trigger. Id recomend this rifle for anyone looking for a good all weather gun.

March 9, 2008
The varmint hunter came out of the box looking good the scope mounts right up and the light and laser didn't work right away. so I got new batteries the light went and works good . Gamo sending out a new laser now . but i did notice something in my tinkering with them . i notice a lot of people on this site and others have trouble with the laser wandering off target after a few shots . if you remove the screws as you are mounting the unit they are loose so i took them out and put loctite on them turned the back in and now the stay tight when the new laser comes i will remove the windage and elevation screws and put loctite on them. think this will help kepp the wander to a minimum as the loctite won't let the screws move from vibration . I buy loctite at the building supplier. the rifle is awesome as it is fast and deadly on those pesky racoons got three already and the others are mighty jumpy now when a door opens . no more picking up garbage early in the mornig

February 25, 2008
Groupings are tight, but no matter how much I tighten the scope mounts, the scope will start sliding back after 3 to 5 shots. Not great for the zero. I still recommend the rifle, but the packaged scope isn't ideal for the slipping issue. Investing in something with parallax correction would be better.

Very good value
October 1, 2007
Bought this pellet rifle to clear some "suburban terrorists" (racoons and oppossums and such) out of my back yard after they attacked one of my dogs. Dialed it in at about 30 yards and can drive tacks with it. I've already started making a dent in the local "terrorist" population. This rifle has plenty of oomph to take down a 30 lb 'coon with a head shot at 25 yards and is very quiet with hollowpoint pellets. If, like me, you're a bit worried about whether this has enough behind it to take down some of the bigger varmints don't be worried. It's fine, as long as you shoot accurately and use your head in selecting your ammunition.

July 29, 2007
This is a powerful air gun, no doubt about it. Only reason for an 8/10 is the scope and keeping the thing sighted. As soon as distance changes by 10-20' accuracy drops. If you€™re shooting targets, then this is for you as distance can be fixed, but if it€™s for your vermin control then things get "squirrelly". Other than that, im very impressed with the quality of the air gun, ability to scope in at night with the help of the flashlight, laser, and power at such a great price. Thanks AirGunDepot

This is the most powerful air gun I've seen. It is also extremely accurate- takes about 1/2 hour to sight in correctly @ 75 yards. Bought it for my 8 year old-probably too much gun for an 8 yr. old w/o close supervision. Add scope, laser, & flashlight & it's an awesome looking gun.

Great website. Info was detailed. As for the air rifle. Awesome return for 200 BUCKS. My eye caught the slim look of the rifle and the first thing I thought was "that is a nice looking youth rifle". Boy was I wrong. This rifle is one bad mamma jamma. Once I found out which pellet my rifle liked, the holes in my target wanted to start holding hands at 30 yards. Mine likes the RWS hollow point. The two stage trigger is better than most for the money. The scope is adequate at best. Mine is on it's way to the back of the reloading room. But It will get you by for a day or two. For a Few Dollars More I would a 22 cal. version. Laser works, flashlight does too. But it's not Surefire quality. All in all. A good buy!

February 22, 2007
I love the gun. When I first sighted it in I was shooting a 3 shot group of 1" at 20 yards, but now I find I can't keep it sighted in I have to keep resighting every day. It will be 2" off from center and I need to resight it in every day. Every thing seems tight and I don't bang it around and use the same pellets, any suggestions ?

Iv'e shot with many airguns, and this offers the most for durability, accuracy, and velocity, so you get good knock-down power. The other day, I shot the tip off of a ballpoint pen from 30 feet. If thats not accurate, I don't know what is. I highly reccomend this rifle, especially for hunting small/medium/medium-large game.

Gamo varmint Hunter
November 30, -0001
Overall , this is a very solid air rifle! The first time that I fired it, it was very loud, but impressive. Very well constructed, and packs a powerful punch. The scope was a challenge , while it would not stay in position after mounting. So sighting in the scope was a bit of a work out. I had to fashion a metal stop plate to prevent the scope from moving after medium use. Other then the scope issue, I was able to shoot a grouping of five shots from 50 yards a quarter in size easy. Very air rifle

Answer:
The gun is a simple break barrel model so if your gun is not firing, it is quite possible that it is defective.
Feel free to contact our returns department by filling out the RMA form on our site.

varmint hunter new version scope with grooved receiver scope stop and added support andpressure cables is this guns site stability improved with the changes?
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 3, 2012

Answer:
Normally when manufactures upgrade something, they typically upgrade any gripes that consumers had with anything. So, I'm assuming so.

By David from Gainesville Ga on May 7, 2012
My wife is totally against guns in the house because of our kids. We are having problems with rogue dogs attacking our small dog in our yard. Would this rifle alleviate my dog problems or at least seriously deter them?
By Staff on May 9, 2012

Answer:
This gun would easily deter them and possibly kill a couple depending on where you hit them.

It is less likely that you would kill them since it is a .177 though.

Is it powerful

By Staff on May 9, 2012

Answer:
This gun is powerful enough to injure/kill any animal raccoon size or smaller.

It has nice range for target practice as well.

By trent from kentucky on May 7, 2012
is this gun a deal? this would be my first pellet gun and i dont know much about them
By Staff on May 9, 2012

Answer:
The Gamo varmint Hunter is a great gun even for beginners.
$145 is a pretty awesome price for a gun as well.

As far as what the gun is capable of, 1200 FPS can easily be used for killing small animals, scaring away large ones, or simple target practice.

I hope this helped

By bob from boston MA on May 14, 2012
is the scope good for a first time hunter? and how far can it see?
By Vince from Maryland on May 18, 2012

Answer:
Not sure how far you can see with it, but yes the scope works great.
By Trever from MI on May 18, 2012

Answer:
The scope is easy to operate and seems to work very well. The key is to use the same ammo for consistency. I'm not sure on the exact distance it can see but it works well for most uses I have had for it. Take your time sighting it in with the ammo you plan to use and approximately how far you will be shooting and it will be spot on. If you change ammo just adjust as needed.
By William R from Gonzales, TEXAS on May 18, 2012

Answer:
The scope is excellant. It is very similiar to a high powered rifle scope. It's heavy duty and once sighted in, holds it's settings. The scope is capable of targeting farther than the effective range of the rifle. I have mine sighted in to 50 yards.
By dan from florida on May 18, 2012

Answer:
this scope is good for a first time hunter, only if they have used scopes before on a target range and know how to ajust them. the scope see's at good distances,further than the weapon can hit a target.....
By thadeous Abbott from new york on May 22, 2012

Answer:
I'm not a big fan of the scope because you have to adjust the sights by using a screwdriver other than that it's not bad.the gun itself is a great guns I'm really enjoying it

Most definitely! You've gotta do you part with the aiming though!

Answer:
Without a doubt and humanely.
By Trever from Michigan on May 2, 2012

Answer:
Since mine I have killed pigeons, a raccoon, and two opossums. The coon was close quarters and probably a little bit too much for this gun. But I think it would work on a squirrel very well.
By Bradley from NC on June 15, 2012

Answer:
YES i have killed 10 so far...it is very accurate!

By Emerson from minnesota on May 15, 2012
How do I make it sound less?
By Staff on May 16, 2012

Answer:
There isn't much you can do to silence a gun. suppressors can be attached to some but they are merely for looks.

By Emerson from Minnesota on May 16, 2012
How do you make it not as loud?
By Staff on May 17, 2012

Answer:
There isn't much you can do for the gamo air guns as far as making them quieter. some of them can use a suppressor as an accessory but it is more for looks than function.

By Jay from Louisiana on July 17, 2012
I must be using the wrong size pellets, because I can't seem to be able to load the pellet after cracking the barrel. The gun was given to me with no instructions. Looking for a little help.

By Joe from Indiana on May 18, 2012

By fred from calif on April 13, 2012
