The overall appearance of the gun is very nice.
Scope is useless at night, and no iron sights means you must use during daylight.
I hope to come back later for an even better gun.

I no doubt aroused some interest in my comment by the phrase "... but be informed... " but I make the comment because while there is great information out there on the internet concerning air rifles per se, alas, there is also a great deal of MIS-information. For example, if you order this rifle, LOOK at the barrel on the top side of the rifle and you should see the following: "Gamo Big Cat .. Velocity 950 FPS [Feet Per Second] with PBA [Performance Ballistic Alloy] Platinum" [sic]. 'Some' [please note my qualifying that!] folks who order this rifle immediately think they have been sent the wrong rifle because they expected to see something like "1200 FPS" because often enough the Gamo folks who make the "Big Cat" will show the wordage "Big Cat 1200" but this refers to the .177 caliber model and NOT the .22 caliber model which [the .22 caliber] generally have 'lower' FPS ratings than the .177 caliber models. However, the take-down or knock-down capability of the bigger .22 caliber pellet within 40 yards is greater than the .177 caliber.

I suppose another reason for my comment is one individual in another forum literally ridiculing [!] other posters making the claim on the now classic debate "what is the best caliber for hunting [including pest control] squirrels?" [sic] and this person opines, "... what a stupid question because the higher the FPS, the more velocity you have and that is the name of the game so the .177 is the only way to go ... ." The ballistics literature on pellets [.177/20 cal/22 cal/25 cal pellets] written by those folks who 'know' what they are talking about would highly disagree! There are various 'other' factors to consider besides FPS ratings!

Ordered this air rifle on the 2nd with two day amazon prime shipping. Got it on the 4th. Loved it the minute i opened package. It looks to be well made. Mounted the scope with no issues, the tools were included. The first shot was just a few inches off so i started sighting it in. With a few shots had it close..then with a few more had it dialed in. This was at about 45 yards. Can hit drink cans every shot now, so i think its pretty close to being perfect..It even goes all the way through 1/4 inch plywood with pba and lead pellets I recommend this gun to everyone who wants good distance and power for a good price. Only thing ill say negative is the site has two different info sections,, ones says "1200 Feet per Second with PBA Platinum ammo/1000 with lead" and the other says 950 fps and match grade accuracy with PBA Platinum ammunition. so a little mis leading..the box actually reads 950 with pba and 750 with lead.. still thats plenty of power and speed especially since i upgraded from a beeman that was maybe 400 fps. Happy with purchase and ordered another one for a friend..Happy shooting, be safe

I've recently been in the market for an air rifle. It came down to the Crosman Quest in 22 or the Gamo Big Cat in 22. After reading some negative reviews about both, I took a leap of faith and went for the Gamo. I'm very happy with my purchase. While it is no competition air gun, it certainly has enough accuracy to take down squirrels at 50 yards. Cocking is smooth and the trigger isn't 'bad' as it is just different. Took about 100-150 rounds to really break in but is still going strong after almost 1000.

The biggest problem with this rifle is the scope/rings that come with it. I highly recommend replacing them both. I have a Tasco 3-9x40 ($40 at Wal-Mart) and a solid, one piece scope mount. I have never lost zero. Other than that, there isn't really anything wrong with the gun that I can think of. The noise level is very reasonable (sounds like a spring airsoft sniper), which was my primary reason for choosing 22 over 177. And no, there aren't iron sights on this gun.

Highly recommended as a first air rifle or a suburban pest control rifle.

Update: 1200+ rounds
Power level has been slowly weakening to the point where the impacts are out of my scope's elevation adjustment. Otherwise, still fully functional but needs a new spring.

When i got this rifle, i was impressed with the build quality. The rifle is very solid,No wiggle or waggle throughout the rifle.At first there was some dieseling due to the lubricants from the factory but after a good 100 shots there was no dieseling.
The rifles first 100 shots for sighting were slightly inaccurate. it took a long time to sight in, due the rifle not being broken-in yet. after the 100 shots, accuracy was surprising. Ive been able to get 2 inch groups at about 80 yards.50 yards and below bring 1 inch groups. The .22 cal pellets i use are the Gamo magnums, and even do gamo has a bad reputation with the quality of their pellets Ive gotten nothing but on target shots with these pellets. Ive use heavier 22 grain .22 cal pellets with these from Benjamin, and those had great accuracy under 50 yards, but the gun doesn't have enough power to push those heavy pellets accurately to the 70 yards. Gamo has impressed me some with the quality and power of this gun at this price. It has mild recoil for a spring break barrel buts it plenty easy to get used to and will become easy to adapt to. All in all a great gun, have taken some squirrels with this and some rats. All shots were instant kill in the vitals, missed one and hit it in the lower portion and it still stopped moving, excellent pest control weapon. All in all a great gun.
