The unit I received from Amazon said SAT on the box but did not say SAT on the actual trigger. I bought another unit from Walmart, which also said SAT on the box but the gun also had SAT printed on the actual trigger (see picture 1). I did notice a difference between the triggers and can only assume I got shipped an old unit in a new box. The Walmart unit also included 50 rounds of PBA PLATINUM ammo which was printed (not a sticker) on the box (see picture 2). Interestingly, the amazon unit did not include the sample ammo and did not have that part printed on the box. Everything else about the boxes seemed identical. I'm not quite sure what to make of the differences since model numbers and prices were identical between the units. I guess my takeaway is that there seem to be different versions out there and I would make sure yours says SAT on the trigger to confirm you got the newer version regardless of what the box says.
I would rate the overall value of the product 4.5 stars (0.5 star deduction for the toy scope, it would be better to ship it without and lower the price by $20). I'm deducting another 1.5 stars here due to having received the older version with the less desirable trigger.
The suppressor does NOT quiet down the shot when using the PBA ammo, which gives Muzzle Velocities of 1280-1330fps, jumping into supersonic. With PBA ammo, a report like a ladyfinger firecracker going off is heard due to the "mini sonic boom" of the projectile. The suppressor DOES protect the muzzle, which is a good enough reason to get this model. The last 1mm of barrel effects accuracy more than the rest of the length! The muzzle crown (where the pellet exits), must be cut perfectly at 90 degrees with no nicks or dings so the air pushing the pellet exits uniformly.
I have a Gamo Big Cat, and an RWS, the Big Cat is .177, and it is quite a bit louder than the Silent Cat, about 50-80 fps slower from the muzzle (may just be the gun, not sure without more tests). The Big Cat is noticeably louder than the Silent Cat when it comes to game downrange. The RWS is about the same loudness as the silent cat, but it is pushing a .22 cal pellet weighing 3x as much at only 800fps.
The bundled scope is solid, good eye relief, the only minor issue is in bright light, the VERY bright fiber dots on the iron sights "wash" into the scope slightly.
The BIGGEST feature of this rifle, the reason I bought it, is the skeleton stock. It allows for the same grip as a thumb-hole stock on a 10/22, or the grip on an AR rifle or most handguns. This comfort feature alone has increased accuracy and quicker muzzle on target.
1) Length of 2 stage trigger is adjustable, but the weight isn't. I wish it was the other way around.
2) NOT related to the air rifle, but to Gamo Pellets. They cost the same as premium pellets, but have the accuracy of popular "$5 for 500" pellets. If a rifle doesn't seem to be accurate, try shooting Polymag or similar True Match pellets! For every day plinking, using any 8 grain pellet will hit close to the point of aim, and for a lot cheaper!
** With regards to accuracy, If you MUST have first shot hits, splurge and get machined pellets. I am in love with Polymag Predator Pellets, they group "same hole" for me at 20yds. The Gamo "red tip" pellets, which LOOK VERY simliar to the polymag, but have casting marks and extrusions down the skirt, tend group at about 1/2" at the same distance the premium pellets go practically in the same hole. Velocity for both is close, with the polymag being a bit faster and more stable.
Overall - You will Not Regret getting one of these, whether for hobby target or hunting small game out to 50 yards!
