the beast
January 15, 2012
Got to love the gamo big cat lots of stopping power. I've had mine for about a year now and the body list keeps getting bigger.I've dropped tons of english sparrows , piegions , grounds squirels and lots more. Its the most accurate pellet gun I've got .I also own a beeman rs2 very strong but the gamo big cat has given me more trophies then the beeman so that's why I prefer the big cat 1200. THANKS EVERYONE AND GOOD HUNTING BE SAFE!!!!!!
Pros:
The power is amazing its pretty light not hard to brake barrel accurate affortable dependable. Hope this helped out anyone thinking about getting this animal man handling beast.
Cons:
The gamo scope it came with had a defect to it I would set the elevation and windage to the max and it did not even move the crosshair a bit other then that hands down great gun thank gamo.

Nice rifle for the price.
August 10, 2014
Well, I have this rifle for 3 months now and some 700 pellets fired. First of all it has a good stock, easy to work with. Very ligth weigth at 6.1 pounds, so is easy to carry and to shoot. Cocking effort is low maybe some 28 pounds. Power is not the best, I measure 4 types of pellets brand when new and just now; I asked another owners for his experience about this topic but has only one answer. In my chrony it is as follow: Gamo Promagnun 15.43 gr. 647 FPS; Crosman Premier 14.3 gr. 680 FPS; Beeman Silver Bear 12.65 gr. 725 FPS and Gamo PBA Platinum 9.7 gr. 830 FPS. Best combination of energy and accuracy is from the Beeman, so it is OK for small animals hunting, for the shooting range I use the Crosman. The trigger is the worst part, heavy and with a long travel, affect accuracy a lot, you must control even respiration to obtain good shots. The scope with fixed power 4X32, is of the chinese low end but I can obtain good use of it, many user throw it away, but if you buy this rifle you do not want spend much money. The only think I would like in this rifle must be a bit more of power, maybe some 18 FPE instead of the 14-15 FPE it has. If I want a better scope I could buy it with extra money but until now it is OK. By the way, the scope must be mounted with the screw stop correctly in place and the ring screws very tigth helped with a drop of Loctite in the screw nouse. I learned this when the scope moved backward into the rings and lost the zero with the first 40 pellets. After this work all run easy, however after every shooting session I measure with a calliper the distances between rings, rings and control knobs center and rear ring to rear end in the receiver, so I am sure everything is fine. With more money of course I will have another gun, for example a Webley Valuemax, a Hatsan 95 or a Diana RWS 34, BUT all has higher price tag. My conclusion is that this rifle is OK for the price and I recomend it.
Pros:
Weight, stock.
Cons:
Trigger, power mus be a bit high, maybe some 17 FPE instead the 15 FPE it has.

Exchanged Stoger X20S for Big Cat .22
May 22, 2014
Bought the Stoger X20S, but the gun just didn't fit me. I'm 5'7, 165lbs. The gun is heavy and the scope mount didn't let me get close enough to the eye piece. I called customer service and they arranged to exchange it for the Big Cat 22. The Big Cat fits me perfect and is much lighter. It doesn't have the silencer, but I really can't tell that much difference. I lot of people complain about the 4x32 Gamo scope and the trigger. Since the effective range of a pellet gun is 20-40 yards the scope works just fine. The trigger is smooth and predictable and I am shooting 1/2" groups at 20 yards. I really don't think I can improve much on that by getting a better scope and trigger! I did shoot about 20-30 rounds through the Stoeger and its not even close to the Gamo in accuracy. Maybe it would like another pellet better. Thanks to Airgun Depot I have a gun I really like!

Great rifle for the price and it does everything!
April 1, 2014
Didn't buy this on this site. Had this rifle for years it was my first .22 air rifle. People read reviews for specific reasons so I will say that it does not shoot very well with the regular crosman pellets. RWS superdome 14.5gr is the king, it even shoots well in my Chinese B3-1 .22 underlever rifle which was $60 shipped on amazon and shoots like crap The scope include is mil dot and you can't ask for more from a scope that came with it. The glass is mediocre and the settings are sub par but what do you expect from a free scope? Yes I say free because for $129.99 Gamo big cat is a hell of a deal for a very accurate rifle. It is hold sensitive like all spring rifles but that is up to the shooter to learn how to hold the rifle. It is no longer an issue when the shooter learns what to do to shoot this accurately and continue to do it. A lot of people complain a lot about the hold but it's simple muscle memory like everything else. If you are looking for a .22 rifle to plink, or hunt and want performance with out the guilt of spending too much then you should get this rifle. The barrel locks up very well after cocking and loading and shoots very accurately. I haven't touched this in 3 years and i shot it with the wrong hold and no warm up and I still got a sub MOA group in 20 yards. With practice the shots start to touch each other (no pun intended :)
Pros:
much too under priced for the product Shot consistency due to great lock of the barrel quiet reliable well made parts longevity smooth everything except for trigger perfect for teens and up decent accuracy
Cons:
Trigger is so heavy! scope is sub par (so if you really like this rifle, invest in a better scope) very hold sensitive (like all springers, even nitro pistons guns are hold sensitive) like most air gun stocks they neglect lefty shooters

Sleek and Beautiful
February 19, 2014
When I opened the box and saw my Big Cat with the black stock, I thought about black jungle cats, so I'm telling everyone I got the Jungle Cat version in the Gamo Big Cat series. I like this gun, and while I've not yet had it long enough to shoot more than just a few rounds, I'm impressed with the power it delivers. It's my first .22 cal air rifle. I can't wait to get it sighted-in and start sharpening my shooting skills.
Pros:
Great looking gun with a good scope all for a very reasonable price!
Cons:
Trigger could be better.

This gun is a nice gun, feels a little cheap but has okay power. I bought it for small game hunting but it felt more like a target gun.
Pros:
Durable Good power not to heavy
Cons:
Scope sucked

scope is not so great. Other than that AWESOME!!!
March 22, 2013
This is a great gun! I spent half of an hour trying to scope it in, with little hope. I went inside and put on a crosman scope I had purchased for $50 and sighted it in within 10 minutes. It shot straight through the wood I was using as a backdrop for the target!!! Very powerful. While sighting it in I dropped a crow!
Pros:
Power and noise.
Cons:
scope, just replace

Awesome Rifle!
February 11, 2013
When I first got this pellet rifle on my birthday, I was really excited! The next day I went out and shot the rifle at a target. I was just high about four inches. I took it down five clicks. I shot again and was still about an inch too high. So I took it down two clicks. I shot and the pellet was about three inches off. But, the reason it did that was because the wind had blown hard. The wind stopped and I shot again. Boom, I was right on target. I took it out hunting. Plus, it comes with platinum ammo and use that because it is accurate. I used master point pellets to sight in the rifle. I shot a crow with it and killed it. I love this rifle. It is not that expensive for the quality and it has and the power. If you would rather hunt squirrels, rabbits, and ground hogs with a pellet rifle, this would be one of the ones you would want. I really enjoy this rifle. If you are looking for a nice pellet rifle, this would be the one you want for its quality, power, accuracy, and price. It is a very nice pellet rifle, and GAMO shows that.
Pros:
I love its quality, killing power, accuracy, and price.
Cons:
Its scope is okay, but not the best. It's barrel is hard to cock at first.

February 6, 2013
I have tested this air rifle with my crony F1 with 15.43 gr Gamo Match pellets avg-600 FPS=12.33 ft pounds, and with 9.4 gr Gamo Platinum pellets avg -875 FPS=15.98 ft pounds. Accuracy is good with the heavy Match pellets but very poor with the lightweight platinum pellets. The lighter pellets will also loss energy very quickly, I bought this rifle to hunt rabbits and smaller game. I am very disappointed with the misleading claims on speed made by Gamo. I will not use this rifle for hunting which is what I bought it for, due to it being underpowered for my intended purpose. I won't chance wounding game due to lack of either power or accuracy. If you are looking for a plinker to practice with, it doe's shoot well with the heaver Match ammo. If you are looking for a rifle to hunt with look elsewhere.
Pros:
Accurate with match ammo.
Cons:
Underpowered for hunting Poor accuracy with light fast ammo

2 for 2
December 13, 2012
Got the Big Cat delivered by FedEx (earlier than expected, nice job!) in the evening. Dialed in the scope the next morning. Bagged two squirrels before lunch. Both went down on the first shot, so my accuracy rate thus far is 100% on game and 100% on targets as well. After about 50 rounds put through it and playing around with the rifle, I do believe it'll stay that way for some time, if not very close to it. This rifle is extremely accurate when properly sighted in, provided the shooter does his/her part when firing. If you're looking for something to hunt small game wtih, this is definitely a solid choice. As others have said, the stopping power is amazing. The first shot I took after sighting it in, I slammed a pellet right into a squirrel's lung and you could literally hear the pop from 35 yards out, when it impacted. I was aiming for the neck on that shot, so I adjusted one click and it's been dead on since. My freezer is gonna be full in no time.
Pros:
Look, feel, and construction. Stopping power. Ease of use. Perfect for small game.
Cons:
Lack of iron sights - not a deal breaker in any way, though.

One amazing rifle!
March 5, 2012
I am not to much of a small game hunter, and I usually use lower FPS air pistols. The Gamo big cat is great for a higher powered target rifle, with the .22 caliber it is extremely accurate with the right rounds. Buyers should definitely consider getting the tin rounds to help with accuracy, and to get the maximum power out of the rifle. the one downside to the rifle is it is very loud, but it is so worth the trouble.
Pros:
Good kick easy to operate. very nice scope for the rifle. smooth trigger action.
Cons:
fairly loud rifle.

i was thinkin about getting the gamo silent cat .22 cal and i decided to get this and this is just the same thing as the gamo silent same fps comes with the same scope only thig that is differnt is the design and in pellet guns id take the cheepest that does the same and i have a fence in my back yard i say is 1/2 the size of a 2/4 and it shot threw 1 and a half of the fence! i used high volicity pellets to do this and normal lead pellets go threw the 1 wood of my fence and 1/4 of the other and i shot a volture today and it was from about 40-50 yards and i got a head shot! 1 shot 1 kill is all it take for this rifle so get it and u wont regret it

Gamo Big Cat
January 26, 2011
I got a Beretta elite 2 and that was alright, however, this was the main "package" and I couldn't be happier about it. The gun has a satisfying crisp pop when it shoots. The gun itself looks nice..... enough pleasantries... The range is pretty good considering how cheap it it. The glass bottle menace never stood a chance. This thing will not doubt eat a squirrel for breakfast. I got some hollow point 22's and I'm semi-scared of this thing. My last bb rifle (.117) shot at point blank gave me a wussy blood bruise. This thing would really hurt. I feel for the small game behind this barrel once the snow stops and I hit the forests. This gun was easily worth it considering the price. My only complaint was lack of iron sights. I am slightly po'd it didn't have them, the scope is mediocre (what did you expect?) but it does the job. If your looking for a cheap (in price) pellet gun to have a good time with, this would be it. Totally recommend this gun considering price and performance. I've had a blast with it and I will continue to do so. Also, this site has great prices (I cross referenced), so this is where to buy it. Awesome gun. Can't verify the speed, but it goes through a glass bottle at 50 yards and then travels through a 1/3 inch wooden backstop... gonna need a new one hehe. Very worth it.

I went browsing around for the best price/performance squirrel killing gun, and this is my ultimatum. I wanted the stopping power, I wanted the penetration, and I wanted the ease of use. The scope has been tricky to sight, but I got it really close. It took a long while, but everything's turned out completely fine. The gun is soooo strong. It kicks a lot, and you legitimately feel the power in your hands. The friction from the pellets being shot at such high speeds causes legitimate smoke. I've deduced that the oil on the pellets cause this. Great shooter overall, I feel like the price is right, and the power is really great.

Really!?!

Holy frick I really underestimated this gun. While trying to sight it in the gun was able to kick back and cut my eye brow. I was holding the gun loosely and I was 2" back. I have never known a pellet gun to kick and wouldn't have believed that a pellet gun could if you told me. Still need to fine tune the sight but this is easily the most powerful pellet gun I have ever seen. This is the first week and will edit after a few months with the gun.

Nice Gun, Great Price
June 29, 2010
In short. Well Worth $140. Very plastic feel to stock, but other than that, it feels very sturdy. Surprisingly easy to cock. No significant kick either, as I understand others with these velocities tend to have. I had heard the .177 version is fairly loud, and was surprised that this is quieter than my CO2 BB pistol. Scope is more than sufficient for < 50 yards which based upon what I see is effective range of .22 pellets.

how far can this gun hit a bottom of a soda can ? consitently ?
By Staff on December 29, 2011

Answer:
about 40 yards depending on the shooter, conditions, and pellets.

By joseph from Victoria BC on August 15, 2012
its a BB gun right?






By Staff on August 16, 2012

Answer:
This is actually a pellet gun. It uses .22 cal pellets. BB's are .177 caliber. BB's will fit in .177 cal pellet guns. The bb's will mess up the rifling in the barrel of pellet guns.

By Smittyd from Augusta, GA on December 3, 2011
Is this a good squirrel gun?
By nate from pa on December 6, 2011

Answer:
yeah the .22 is a factor to when it comes to small game hunting because the pellet can just go through anything
By evan from Va on December 15, 2011

Answer:
it goes right through the squirell and kills them istantly because of the .22 cal. rounds.

I'm interested in buying a Gamo Big Cat,but im not sure whether to get the .177cal or .22cal. im going to use this gun to kill skunks that come in eat my chick eggs and quails etc.. also i was wondering which caliber is able to kill a fox
By Staff on May 16, 2012

Answer:
you will want a .22 if you are going to be trying to kill anything.
It hits so much harder.

By Daniel V. from Vassalboro,Maine on December 21, 2011
In the desc. it says "Single shot" does that mean the loading capacity is one? (Holds one bb/pellet) then you have to open the barrel and reaload by hand? Or does it have a clip with it or something?

Let me know thx,dan
By Staff on January 7, 2012

Answer:
Yes break barrel rifles are all single shot. You put one pellet in at a time.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 10, 2012

Yes, exactly how you described it.....that's how it is done.

what is better for hunting the gamo bigcat .22 or the gamo bgcat .177

Also, what is the biggest thing this could take down a turkey fox racoon coyote?

By Staff on January 7, 2012

Answer:
The big cat .22 is better. It has a lot more knockdown power. We always recommend .22 cal and up for hunting anything bigger than birds, rats etc. for smaller pests .177 cal works just fine.

Thanks
By mike from pa on January 9, 2012

Answer:
well both are great I have both and once you shoot them you can see that its realy up to you one has better speed 177 and penatrates deeper the other is slower 22 but has more energy leaves bigger hole but if shot placment is good you will be amazed at what it will take down wild hog and down for 22 and coyote and down for the177. thats not saying the 177 wont kill a hog just have not tried it yet. hope this was helpful
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 10, 2012

Answer:
Go for the .22, but don't take a coyote with it....use something a lot bigger.

By Fred Oneal from Maryland on April 30, 2012
I bought thie big cat gamo 22cal & purchased a leapers 5th gen 9x40 scope. I really like the scope, but cannot get it zero in.. I get it real close and put it away for the night and go to shoot it the next day and it is off again. Sometimes it will work for days with out fail and try to dial it in and the whole thing goes back to square one! I am shooting from about 25' and can not hit the middle unless, I compansate with the mil dots. Will this scope work for this gun??
By Staff on May 3, 2012

Answer:
That scope should work fine, so you may have a defective scope. I would recommend returning or exchanging your scope (As long as you are still in warranty coverage) and trying another to see if you have the same problem.
