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.

shot at 23 feet one hand no support (age 80+)

After the initial set up the pistol shoots accurate, Love it

I wish there are instruction how to lubricate the piston.

By DonnDecember 13, 2023

Tolerable, not a bottom level item

Not way overpriced, bought because I couldn't source an all metal FAS

Change the plastic upper to metal

By SteveUSASeptember 14, 2021 Verified Purchase

Those how have sight adjustment problems read this: rear sight left side of blade slot adjusts the gap width, right side screw moves the gap left and right, And the center top screw elevation ccw up and cw down I hope this help.

After a year+ I now have 2 working V10s . Melted the receiver with military weapons lubs. Air Venturi found a receiver and sent it free of charge.

By SteveUSAJuly 7, 2021 Verified Purchase

I now have 2 of these fine pistols, one with a melted receiver(part # 14550) and one working pistol. Air Venturi cannot get parts for these. They have tried for over a year to supply this part for my pistol. I live in the USA and have searched all the suppliers. Gamo Compact is the same basic pistol with the same parts listing, pictures and part # but none in the USA.


Some of the major plastic parts are not resistant to petroleum products. The receiver will melt from being exposed to military oils such as MILTEC

By AnthonyUSAApril 12, 2021

Good feel and grip.

I have sent this pistol in twice now for warranty work regarding gas system. Between 5 and 10, shots I would pull the trigger and get phfft. Recock and it would fire. Now back from repairs and and it is worse then when I sent it in. I am getting one shot out of every 3 to 5 cockings. I like this gun but it is useless in it's current state.

By RobertUSAJanuary 7, 2021

10 shot string within 7 feet/second out of the box averaging 360 f/s w/ JSB Green 7.33g . One hole group capable and a joy to shoot. It is just expensive enough to feel like you've got something special for a bargain.

There is no sight gap. My frame to trigger group is clunky.

By CurtSeptember 21, 2017

The price was the major selling point for me. I shoot international pistol nine or ten times a year so I didn't want to spend a lot on an air pistol. The gun is very accurate. The biggest negatives are the trigger and sights. I am tall (6' 2"), but not abnormally tall, so the distance from my eye to the sights is probably a little longer than it is for most people. Out of the box, there was no light visible between the edges of the front and rear sights when the sights were correctly aligned. I filed the notch in the rear sight so that it was a little wider. This was not easy to do neatly because the rear sight is plastic. The trigger pull is 2# and is not adjustable. This is a hard trigger pull for an air pistol. I also have trouble getting the pellet in the barrel. In a thirty round match, fatigue from cocking the pistol does become a factor and you do have to be careful not to get any part of your hand caught in the pistol when cocking it.

Trigger Sights Loading

By JoyceJune 9, 2017

The gun is accurate and once I got used to it, the grip was fine


Hard to load. It took way too long to try to get the pellet in the gun. On several occasions, upon pulling the trigger - nothing happened and I would have to repump. HOWEVER, when I released the barrel to reload, it would sometimes fire. Safety hazard if I were not trained to always keep guns pointed down range. I wish I could love this gun, but it just isn't happening yet. I am thinking that maybe I got the one gun that was bad in all that were made.

By RodneyUSANovember 24, 2016

This has been a great air pistol It hangs on the coat rack by the front door, it gets a lot of use, and has had many, many thousands of pellets through it. Even at my age I can still split a 177 in half on a knife blade at 20 feet with it ( 30 years ago I was a professional trick shot ). Mine can still put them in one hole at 10m from a rest, and is still shooting 400 fps


Cocking is not for the weak

By GregUSAOctober 16, 2016

It has the accuracy. It has an adjustable trigger. The grips are large, but easily sanded down to fit your hand. The contour of the grips, and the palm shelf make getting a repeatable grip easy. My rear sight needed to be widened a bit. I couldn't get myself to modify the OEM grips, so made new ones. This is an impressive pistol for the price. Still my Avanti 747 out shoots it and cocks and loads easier. However the grips on this pistol, and it's smaller size make it a winner too. This pistol has shot well with RWS 7gr match pellets and only a little less accurate with Gamo match wadcutters. Mine came with a case that also has room for a tin of pellets. I would rate it 5 stars if it were easier to cock and load.

Hard to cock and load for a 10 Meyer pistol.

Can this be used for dry-firing exercises?

asked John from USA

Is anyone else having problems with windage adjustment? I have the rear sights cranked almost all of the way over and still hitting to the right.

asked Anthony from USA

Is it available for left handed users

asked Robert from USA

The grip is too big to hold, how to deal with this problem?

asked John

How does it cock, sidelever or overlever? How much effort to cock? Is the pellet port easy to access?

asked jim

It is a single stroke pneumatic. You cock it by lifting the upper barrel assembly up and over. Place a pellet in the breech. Then close. Closing takes some effort.

Greg from USA

Upper receiver tilts forward. Cocks on the downstroke returning the upper receiver to its original position.


Is this grooved for adding optical sights?

asked Mike Miller

That's a big fat negative , but , that being said it wasn't made for optic sights either , its a TEN METER PISTOL :-) By the way I owned this little Gem , and it is one accurate PISTOLA :-) Gamo has a Gem here , and it is worth every penny , AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE :-) Kelly A. Bodish -KB Custom-Gunsmith

Kelly from USA

It is possible to use GAMO PBA non lead ammo? What speed increase is possible, if any? Thanks

asked larry Isaacs

PBA lessens accuracy with the higher fps. This is a match pistol and the ideal fps range is between 360 and 410 @ 10 meters.

Michael from USA

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

Carter from USA

The Gamo PBA Raptor pellets are rated to Increase Velocity 25% (On guns whose speed is rated with normal lead pellets)
