First --- before you do anything else --- THROW AWAY THE SCOPE!

Do not attempt to install this China made Junk Scope on this nicely made in Spain air rifle! (Use the scope for bird watching, spotting, but NEVER on any rifle)!

I give this rifle a 4.5 star rating. It is much lighter than most in its class due to the hollow plastic stock and the one detraction (the reason for not getting 5 stars) that the barrel is a lightweight thin-walled steel encapsulated in a thick plastic sleeve (rather than the standard thick solid steel barrel). However, this light weight makes it a joy to carry, since such air rifles cannot practically have slings.

I installed a 4X-40 fixed power Swift scope (after rejecting due to inaccuracy several 2x7 and 3x9 variable power made in China scopes). The 4X power is sufficient for this rifle's range and with this Swift scope (bought is on sale for $45) it now places 9 of 10 shots in a dime sized target at 30 feet (this is after about 500 pellets).

The reason I got this one (after a long time researching many) is my $600 RWS 350 Magnum (made in Germany) with a 3x9-42 Swift Premier Scope weighs about 10 lbs(I sometimes get tennis elbow cranking its near 40 lbs cocking pull) --- was hoping I'd get a quality lightweight that can be easily cocked, while still having good power and accuracy (at a low price that I can keep in the truck and not worry).

This rifle surpassed my expectations --- at about $160 with the quality Swift 4X scope --- it is several grades above the rest in it class. While many US companies (Beeman, Daisy, Crossman, Ruger, etc.) have their rifles now produced in China (known for questionable quality), this European made air rifle is better than others twice its price!

Some reviewers say that the scope on this rifle sucks. What are you going to use an entry level pellet gun for? Are you going to take this gun to a pellet gun competition? I don't think so. I mounted the scope and went into the backyard with some zombie targets my wife picked out. Fun targets I have to admit. We traded shots, and I zeroed in the scope. We were shooting about 35 yards. We didn't use any fancy rifle mount or sandbags, we used good old fashioned shoot a group in the sitting position, then adjust, fire a group, then adjust again. After about twenty shots we had that scope dialed in. The zombie face I was shooting at began to disintegrate. This gun is not bad at all. If you think you have a better gun for less price let me know. I bet I can out shoot you with this one. I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran, MOS 2111, three time rifle expert, two time pistol expert. I know what I am doing. This gun is worth the price I paid and lives up to the description that was presented. The only thing I wish Gamo included was a cleaning kit. I can't stand a dirty weapon, and I am going to have to cobble together an appropriate kit.

I spent several hours on the internet searching for the perfect starter rifle for small game hunting/target-shooting, and I definitely hit the mark with my Gamo Hornet.
BIG TIP: Read the little booklet manual that it comes with. Preferably more than once, for the safety of you and those around you. It's easy to read and is only around 15 mini-pages.

Durability/Aesthetics: This air rifle is solid, the weight is distributed evenly, and boy does it look hot. The cheekpiece is smooth and feels like a hug to the face, and the minute amount of recoil against the ventilated rubber buttpad feels more like a massage than a jerk! And a big plus for me: No huge logo anywhere! In my honest opinion, this rifle is the quintessence of true craftmanship. (It's a work of art!)

Besides the new paint job, a friend of mine that owns both airguns and big guns customized/shaved down the grip to fit my petite hands. I wouldn't ever do this myself, however- Doing it wrong can ruin the gun or hurt someone. Note that I love all other aspects of the gun and do not wish to change them.

The Scope:
I'm tossing the one that came with it as soon as I have an extra $50-$100 laying around for a higher quality one. I'm no expert, but the eye-relief on this bad boy is a pain in the butt. You have to be just close enough for the full picture. I'm also unable to fully zero it in (But maybe I'm doing it wrong, will edit soon) so my shots are always lower than the center point.

The Trigger & The Safety, and the Barrel:
Just as I expected, the trigger is smooth and has a good amount of resistance. It is not a hairpin trigger, but you don't have to truly squeeze either. I can easily move my trigger finger to pull back the safety.

This air rifle is awesome! It is very accurate I shot a snowshoe hare at forty yards off hand right through the neck. I have killed tons of snowshoe hares with it and three squirrels. The scope was terrible the crosshairs jumped around about every twenty shots., so I put a red dot in it. This thing also has power, it can kill a snowshoe hare with one shot. And us alaskan's know that is not easy, beacause snowshoe hares are much larger than cottontails. This is an awesome air rifle!
