Go ahead get one.
I did have to shim the front mount to bring the scope in center enogh to adjust, but after that, DEAD ON. The scope moved with each turn and zeroed right on. The Laser adjusted right on and at night, I have shot tight groups.
For the money, try this scope first, it won't disappoint.
Rifle is VERY accurate with this scope and I wish I had purchased it when I ordered the rifle. Laser is accurate as well once you get it dialed in. While the attached light is not going to warn an oil tanker 9 miles off a reef, it does do quite well for close work, and I have no complaints. The luminosity is really not that bad given what it was designed to do. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to improve their accuracy over stock sights.
Also the weight of the scope, laser and light help to stabilize the Shadow's significant recoil. My pattern is around the size of a quarter at 25 yards. Remember to use your left hand under the center of gravity or you won't get a tight grouping.
Downside: the flashlight is way too weak to blind savvy animals and they get savvy fast, believe you me. Also you can not adjust and focus the light beam so the center of the beam is pointed off there while the laser isn't in a remotely "blinding" position.
I drilled and borrowed the Wever rail off my Crosman Nightstalker Tactical and centered the flashlight beam on the laser. I kept the Gamo light because it's position above the scope helps for faster reloads and now my Gamo Shadow is the Biggest, Baddest, Thing in the Valley.
I can now shoot with accuracy at 30 yards at night in a crouch and about half that standing on the fly. It also helps enormously in the day as long as you know where the laser is in relation to the crosshairs (find a shadow to laser) and keep in mind your head position will change this relationship. Also, always shoot at least one shot into a target before hunting as with the stronger recoil of an airgun, scope creep happens even with a scope creep stopper bought from Gamo. The giveaway is when the stopper and scope have a gap between that wasn't there when you tightened them down.
We have a 3 acre property and all the varmints hardly come near, I have a Havahart live trap that remains empty in testimony. We were taking 2-3 a week before.
The laser works especially well on small annoying fowl, which are extremely hard to hit without the laser.
It would be nicer if the scope was higher, you see the sight at the end of the barrel: annoying especially at night when the light shines off of it, but that helps with your head position--it must be centered for the laser to agree with the crosshairs.
If you have a Gamo Shadow 1000 and the varmints are standing off further, this, plus a two cell CR123A flashlight and a Weaver Rail mounted to the side of your stock, is for you.
