I bought this with the crossman destroyer pellets. I got both without checking if the pellets worked with the gun cuz it was recommended by amazon as “frequently bought together.” I thought since everyone buys that it must be the best option...wrong. This B.B. gun takes the round spherical B.B.’s and the pellets don’t work. So if your gonna buy, keep this in mind
Other than that, it’s great so far. Have not shot it yet but looks scarily realistic and actually has some weight to it. The .177 barrel is recessed a little bit from the tip of the barrel so it’s hard for someone to see. So far I am very pleased with this glock 19. I only wish they had a CO2 blowback model because CO2 is much more convenient than green gas especially on the go if your at a friends house or using it in an organized airsoft like event.
This bb gun is badass. The gun feels almost like a real firearm and is designed to replicate a Glock 19. The slide is metal and does not move and the rest of the gun is made of quality, hard, durable plastic. I recommend this to everyone, well worth the money.
I am extremely satisfied with the solid build, weight and details of this glock 19 replica. However, I was taken back after realizing the metal is fixed on this gun. I had seen videos of other reviewers who had working slides and realized there were two versions of the glock 19 made by umarex, one which is blowback and has working slide, this one being the other. I was surprised because this was not mentioned in the item description and I assumed this one has working slide. It definitely takes points off for realism, but I guess the price reflects it. Overall, other than a nonworking slide the gun is very well made and true to what real glock feels like.
So the CYA holster do fit. The only downfall is it’s extremely tight! I’ve tried it on my belt and off. It is a little easier to draw when it’s on your belt. I bought this cheap light to see if it will fits and it does. The BB gun itself is great! No issues yet. I do recommend trying it out. I’d buy another one if needed ????????...
Ps. I did loosen the tension screws and it did help a little.
Gun handles well weight and feel of it pretty identical to the real thing I own three that are actually firearms the 23 the 21 in the 19 this was very similar...But it's not blowback... a good practice gun though.... what I didn't like was as you can see in the picture I had to fabricate the back piece where you put the CO2 in... Mine came off in the holster I couldn't find it so I had to jury-rig it and then I just bought a new one when the price went down they need you work on better design of the handlethe rear piece of it that clips in doesn't hold very well
Phenomenal product. Looks and feels very much like a real gun. Ordered on friday night and got it sunday morning. I was able to get about 8-9 magazines full 125-150 rounds out of it before having to replace the co2 cartridge. You will want to get a few extra magazines as you will surely go through them quick.
I really can't add anything to review that isn't already posted except, When I researched the pistol online it was shown packaged in a Cardboard Box with "Glock 19" on it similar to what a real firearm might be sold in and worthy of keeping for storage etc. Disappointingly mine came in a cheap looking plastic vacuum formed clamshell. This is a missed opportunity for Glock / Umarex to add perceived valued and the unpackaging experience.
Great gun! Looks and feels like a real glock! Very accurate! This is the 2nd one I bought, got it $20 cheaper here on Amazon! Great deal!
Great product. Realistic weight and design. Very accurate. Only issue is finger safety. Has a long and heavy trigger pull but that is expected because it is a double action pistol. Fits great in my aftermarket holster. Excellent for training and speed shooting purposes. I do wish it was blowback though.
This particular piece is very nice. I honestly can find betty little to no faults with this one. One thing I wish they would do is make this one both BB and Pelllet. But, as you can see from my attached photos, this unit is very close to the real deal. You can even field strip this one to clean it and make sure it stays in tip top shape. I personally like to check the springs every now and again since in some of the reviews others have down talked these because of how bad they are. I have not found a fault with them yet.
I personally love mine. I've included time stamped photos of me field stripping this piece so you can see that it doesn't take long, but it does get quite in detail as well.
Haven't shot it but feels and looks great
The gun itself is a very nice looking piece and almost everything about the gun is great, but make sure to not fire the gun to quickly. If you fire the gun too fast it will jam easy and you need to clean out the jammed B.B.’s which is a pain. Overall a great gun for the most part
A little light sanding and i looks real.... works great, but the saftey flew off while pistol whipping... not the intended use though so 5 stars
I Love this Remington 1911 co2 pistol it is turned out to be accurate and a very fun shooting pistol.
Beautiful gun. Blowback feels so realistic.
I really enjoy collecting airsoft and BB guns. This is one of the ones I really enjoy shooting. The only thing I would change for this pistol is having the safety working where it would be on an actual M9 Berretta. But in my opinion, I think this is a good BB gun when you first start collecting airsoft/BB guns!
Very cool gun, even breaks down, or field strips, like the real beretta fs92. Push in oblong button on right side of pistol (looking from back of gun) and twist switch on left side of gun, remove the oblong button. Slide out the switch by pulling it out of the left side of the gun. Pull slide forward off gun frame. Shoots nicely too, great bb spring gun overall
After being a little doubtful about this gun due to all of the negative reviews, I still decided to buy it. It, along with the Daisy Powerline 201, is one of the only non-Co2 BB guns on the market, which is the reason why I wanted it in the first place. Also, it is sold at a very low price. After firing 13 shots at a BB target, it proved to be a very reliable and fairly accurate pistol. It is not as powerful as other BB guns, but it is not incredibly weak either. The Powerline 340 will put a hole through thick cardboard. Thus, I think it is a great BB pistol for a beginner, as well as any other skill level.
- Low Cost
- Moderate Power (240 fps)
- Extremely Lightweight (Made mostly out of plastic)
- Good Sights
- Easy-to-use magazine
- Not as powerful as many other BB guns on the market
- Slightly clunky
Bought one and it kept jamming so I bought a second one. It jammed the first time and never even fired once. I now have 2 of these and neither one works. It is very frustrating. My recommendation is to purchase something else!
This pistol looks pretty nice and arrived in working order with no broken parts. It's built nearly completely of plastic, some may find the feather weight to be off-putting. I found that even at 3 yards soda can hits may or may not occur, plenty of flyers in between making your mark. I found working the fairly stiff slide to be pretty uncomfortable. Although the molded levers, sites, and widgets look nice, they tend to dig, or rub the hand while cocking. This pistol comes nowhere near the quality in some of the older builds in this category. The old Daisy 188, or Marksman repeater will out perform this hands down in all regards. Due to the stiff cocking slide and poor accuracy I would not recommend this as a youth trainer. I can see an application for trigger/safety discipline as an adult trainer. Others may have different experiences, I have only taken a look at this one example. You get what you pay for but not a single cent of value more. Just my opinion, I don't claim to be an expert.
Pretty good pistol works as intended and shipped very fast.
I got this as a costume prop, I have no BBs yet but I've just ordered some. But this dose look real so it will go well with my costume, then I could also probably use this for self defense with how real it looks. If the look alone dose fend anyone off. If not a BB to the eye should.
Im really happy with the Daisy Powerline 340, it feels really confortable in my hand. Its not too heavy, but not too light either. I personally bought it to use it as a prop in some futere videos I plan to make, but it does work perfectly. Its a good quality BB gun for a really good price. Totally recomend buying one.
This BB gun is really good for the price it's amazing for going out and plinking with it and the polymer is pretty good so don't be afraid if you drop it once or twice as long as you're not using it as a hammer will last you a good long while but nothing is perfect so here are my two flaws with this gun number one accuracy is poor number two the trigger is not metal but overall I think it's very good so I do recommend it
I’m fairly new to BB Guns and this is definitely a perfect beginners gun. It looks and feels great and is even better if you’re trying to use it as a prop for a video or skit! Definitely recommend if you’re looking for something realistic looking and simple!
After a month or so of hemming and hawing I purchased a Umarex S&W M&P 40 (the GBB version of course) to replace my beloved Cybergun Sig SP2022. The SP2022 is a wonderful pistol, and fitted with a rail mounted laser sight it's been my "deterrent" gun.
The M&P appears to be a nice pistol, 'shoots in the 300FPS range, and the build quality seems to be pretty good.
As with all of my gas-powered guns, I had put the obligatory drop of Crosman Pellgun Oil on the tip of the first Crosman CO2 cartridge and the CO2 had leaked out over night, which did not surprise me. After installing the 2nd cartridge (it's now been 3-days) the gun sealed up fine.
I'm still learning the intricacies of the M&P and since it's Saturday I decided to spend some time today working with it.
One of the first issues to come up was upon field stripping, a small strip of silver tape was scrunched up between the slide and barrel. The only logical explanation for this piece of tape is to protect the black paint on the breech from scratches when the slide cycles. It's a "cute" idea, and I'm sure that though it works great for "demo" guns at the LSG, the reality is; That piece of tape is eventually going foul something (barrel, guide rod, or..) and most people aren't going to want to have to "field strip" a BB gun that they just spent $80.00 on. I have to wonder how many of these guns have been returned as defective due to this (as with most of the pistols that I own; I polished the breech and barrel on my M&P so I'm not concerned with minor scratches on the breech).
The BIGGEST factor that kept me from purchasing a Umarex S&W M&P 40 sooner is that in EVERY YT review it shoots low, and we're talking 2" to 4", which to me is completely unacceptable! Now what nobody realizes or makes mention of in their YT reviews (and there's no mention of it in the owners manual either) the Umarex S&W M&P 40 has an adjustable hop up adjusted by a screw in the bottom of the barrel assembly. Now I have yet to shoot any BB's thru mine, I'm hopeful that hop up is in fact adjustable to correct for elevation
One of the big complaints I've read about this gun is the the lack of a catch on the magazine to facilitate loading BB's. In the next week or so I'll try to look into it and come up with a DIY fix, do not expect the manufacturer to address it anytime soon.
Things that you're going need:
1. A good pair of shooting safety glasses.
2. A tube of Crosman Pellgun Oil (This is one of the most valuable upkeep/maintenance items that you can get for trouble free performance).
3. CO2 cartridges, I only use Crosman brand in my guns due the CO2 cartridge seals are broken in to the shape of the Crosman cartridge tips.
4. 4.5mm/.177 cal BB's. Brand is going to be your choice I have bottles of Daisy Copperheads, Daisy Match Grade Avante, and Excite Smart Shot (copper coated lead) BB's.
This gun is a keeper and is fast becoming one of my favorite air pistols. I had the opportunity to run a few magazines thru it last weekend and the gun does shoot low, I haven't had the time to modify the rear sight for elevation. The shot grouping at 30' is very good. I mounted a laser sight and a rechargeable flashlight. The gun will fit a Bulldog Cases holster (large) with the laser installed if you wet mold the holster. The loading spring on the magazine is a finger nail cracker, though using DIY speedloaders made from Bic pens it's manageable.
6-months later and I like this gun so much that I purchased another one! The first one has now been cannibalized for parts in order to convert my Airsoft (6mm plastic BB) M&P 9L Perfomance Center (Extended slide) to use 4.5mm steel/lead BB's. Though this gun is sold under the Umarex label, it's manufactured by KWC and the internals are identical.
This is the most realistic steel BB pistol available at this time. Definitely one to add to your collection. The only problem is that it shoots 5-6 inches low at 10 yards. This makes it unacceptable as a good target shooter, but luckily I have a fix!! First of all this gun actually has a hop up. The only steel BB gun I have ever seen with one. There is a screw on the bottom of the barrel breech and I was able to screw it in a few extra turns and could see the "hop up" moving inside the barrel. This helped a little with the gun shooting low but it was still not enough. The next step in correcting a low shooting gun is to adjust the sights. Unfortunately this gun does not have adjustable sights for elevation. You can adjust windage at the front sight but the rear has no adjustment. So like in the old days to correct a low shooting gun you start lowering the front sight by filing it down. I had to file the top of the front sight down about 0.050 inches lower. This made the top of the sight right at the top of the white dot. Used a black marker to "repaint" the bare metal and cover the white dot. It will now shoot to point of aim as good as my Umarex Colt Commander and my Cybergun Sig P226 X-Five steel BB pistols. Great fun on my backyard half scale steel challenge stages!!
Perfect. I love this hand gun for running drills in my yard. It's almost identical to the real thing.
The umarex m&p 40 is very nice and detailed looks and feels pretty close to the real thing. My only complaint is the magazine is very hard to load unless you have a tool Its almost impossible using your fingers to load this. I damaged my magazine trying to load it the first time because the spring kept on flinging back as I was trying to get BBs in. It would’ve been nice if they had a lock on the magazine to hold the spring back while loading.
edit after less than a weeks use
after about 4 co2 carts my gun doesnt hold the air properly. it shoots the first round and then the next shot shoots all the co2 out the barrel ive been using the umarex brand co2 carts too.
Had to get a replacement because co2 bolt was messed up but other than that it’s the best co2 pistol I own
Great just wish I knew what that silver tape inside slide was for
Upper slide dysfunctional (upper slide doesn't close). Does not shoot. Comparing this to my colt commander 1911, this one is worse in every aspect, parts are also not manufactured or quality controlled well. Return requested.
Was so excited. But then....whole thing is meesed up.
When I took the pistol out of the box, the paint was already chipping off the slide. I decided to strip the paint down to the metal and hopefully be able to paint the slide again. Overall, it is a fun pistol because it is so realistic.
I got this at my local gun store about a week ago and have been having lots of fun with it, love the weight. The trigger isn't the best but it works. I touched mine up to look more used with a Scotch Brite pad and colored the grips, I'll provide some pics.
This gun is the next best thing to a "real" Colt, except one advantage. BBS are cheaper to fire than bullets! The second my fiancé,who this was a gift for,saw our daughter with the shell casings he knew it was here and his face has been lit up ever since. He says it's nicer than any "real" gun he's ever owned. Having shot it myself,ill be buying the Nickel finish for me. This guns got some power behind it, and I wouldn't wanna be on the other end. While it's not a toy,ladies this is the perfect gift for any gun or Western enthusiast in your life. I'll be buying more for family members who fell in love as well! Very happy with my purchase. thanks umarex & Colt! ????????
[[VIDEOID:724cd37e197fab8f569983068fbc74cc]] Very good quality especially for the price! History comes alive! This gun also known as the Single Action Army, SAA, Model P, Peacemaker, M1873, and Colt .45 is a single-action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges. It was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1872 by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company – today's Colt's Manufacturing Company – and was adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.
This replica so much more than I expected! It shoots very very well, no jams!
I don't know how to truly relay my love of this air pistol. It's my first blowback and I fear I've set the bar so high nothing else will compare. I had an issue .45 while serving as an MP in the Army and this thing feels and fires so similarly I won't even bother with the differences because they truly are minor. It's ridiculously accurate and easy to shoot. The dropout mag loads rather easily once you figure out how it works and the mag release is so smooth you have to remind yourself it's a BB gun, and not a real mag. The only negative is that it eats CO2 like a hungry pitbull on a porkchop. I get three, maybe four mags down range before I notice the drop in velocity and power. Still, that said they're an awfully fun 4 mags!!!
If you want a solid, all metal (save the grips - which you can change easily enough to something nicer), blow back I triple dog dare you to find something better for the price. Prior to this my S&W revolver was my favorite handgun, but this knocked that so far out of the running I almost feel bad for it, lol.
Definitely not a toy, it looks and almost feels and weighs like the real one it weighs a little less but honestly not much difference it does not come with an orange cap, it can be mistaken as a real gun the barrel size does not look much different than a .22 (dont ever look down the barrel even if you know its not loaded) if you're buying this for your kid it would be a good start in teaching them safty rules and laws when handling a gun, i strongly recommend parent supervision with this.
This is about as close to the real deal of a 1911 that you will find before getting in to powder burners. This thing shoots better then I can LOL. This is not a hard shooting gun and its best use is pinking and for keeping your skills up to snuff. Many parts can be changed to the real firearm parts with none, little, or some modification to them. As said it will eat CO2 so make sure you have a lot. the Kick back is enough to throw the sight off the mark forcing you to aim again just like the real deal. The trigger, slide action, all normal 1911 working style or feel just not as strong as a 45 acp, it is more like a 22lr round.. The slide now and then dose not lock open on last shot but easy fix with a dot of JB weld placed on the slide stop right were the mag hits. as an old 1911 lover and one who has built a few I will tell ya get this one, save your money for good ammo and use this one for training, practice, and the bad weather days. Then again you may find your shooting and tinkering with this one more then you ever thought , I know I have been!!
This gun is amazing. As a security officer I carry a glock 19 for work and I really wanted to tech my son about gun safety without having to use the real thing. This is the perfect training tool. The build quality is amazing and I am highly impressed on the detail.
I wish I could give this thing 5 stars because it is pretty awesome. It's heavy. It feels like a 9mm pistol. I have a beretta that is lighter than this BB gun.
I bought this to shoot the birds that have been pestering my garden. And yes, it works. I've taken down a couple.
It really does feel awesome in the hand. The only problem with with the load action. Once in awhile a Bb will drop out and fall to the ground. This is usually after you load the mag.
All in all. I would buy it again. All day. It's dope for BB gun. Lol.
This bad boy lets you experience the thrill of one the world's most popular, most effective handguns without the hassle of licensure, paying for range time or spending a bundle on ammo. It is now by far my favorite blowback! Good stuff!!
Very realistic 1911 replica. Shoots nice. Dots on sights are way to glossy for me. In situations where lights behind you it's hard to be accurate. Weathered mine, I really like a heavily used looking 1911. Very accurate heavy heavy blowback, probly like a .22? Packaging sucks for this quality of pistol. Please repackage in a box no more clam shells! Yes the grips will interchange with real 1911 grips (with slight modification to grips very easy mod) I used my ergo grips from my taurus.
gun looks and feels realistic.good gun only wish it had a little bit more power
Things I like :
The gun looks very nice and very realistic to a real S&W .19 Snub. Overall the gun feels great in hand, except for the loose grips, it has a nice heavy weight, great power 90+ shots, dual ammo, adjustable site, good for small pest control, and metal construction.
Things I don't like :
The loose hammer, loose grips, long trigger pull in DA, cheap plastic blister pack, no speed loader or extra cartridges included, very cheap plastic grip.
Now the problems... -_-
I shot more then 200 pellets and the accuracy is scary!
I inspected the gun, and noticed that the hammer and grips were loose and wobbly! When I pulled back the hammer into the cocking position the hammer was not loose, it was perfectly intact and not moving, the grips were slightly loose and wobbly. The grips make a squeaky/creaking noise when holding the gun in your hand. Later that day I cleaned the barrel of the gun, and I decided to fire the gun, I loaded the gun with the 6 included bb and pellet cartridges with Crosman copperhead bbs, I put a Crosman CO2 cartridge in the gun and went outside to fire the gun. I set up a target 7 yards away from me, I was shooting at a pop can.
I fired the gun and noticed each of my 6 shots were WAY OFF! The 6 shots were going too high, too low, left and right. It would rarely shoot straight! After I would say 18 shots the gun shot accurate but after those 4-5 "accurate" shots it would shoot in any direction! I adjusted my sites and shot again, the same thing happen it shot in all and any direction but rarely did it shoot straight! Again I adjusted the sights over and over again! Nothing changed. I decided to use different bbs made by Umarex the same thing happen, I checked and inspected the gun for any damage before I started shooting and loading the bbs, I also cleaned the barrel... I removed all factory grease too. This time I brought the target much closer to me. 6 feet away. I hit the pop can BUT it would scatter all over the pop can and not hit where I want it too in the middle! From 6 feet away I should be hitting bullseye dead center! I shot the gun in both single and double action and noticed no difference in the bullet direction when fired. I went threw 4-5 CO2 cartridges shooting bbs and pellets and never did I ever get the gun to shoot straight, where I want it!
Things that need to be fixed/improved! :
The blister pack! Why is it packaged in a cheap plastic garbage blister pack? Who at Crosman has their head up there arse? CHANGE the packaging from a blister pack to a regular normal box.
It should come with more shells too!
Where is the manual/instruction?? Why did my gun not come with one?
The hammer and the grips are loose and wobbly!!! How come you guys didn't fix this problem already!!! When you cock the hammer it does not become loose.
The grips need to be changed big time!!! I dislike the way we need to remove the grip in order to put the co2 inside! The grips are cheap and I am sure it will break one day!
Almost all air guns are made in Asia! So you don't expect good quality and packaging.
What others should know about :
Try out different kinds of pellets to see what your gun enjoys most...
Remember to always put oil on the Co2 cartridges.
Check if your gun has a loose hammer & grips.
And also check if your gun shoots straight from 6 feet away!
Overall the gun is good but! It will not shoot straight! The loose/wobbly hammer & grips need to be improved!!! And the gun needs to be packaged in a box with a manual.
Come on Crosman! Get your head together. It's been too long.
I did not buy this gun from Amazon, I am just letting people who want to buy this gun know what I experienced. I bought my gun from a Canadian store called Le Baron, and I now got my new replacement directly from a Crosman distributor called Gravel Agency.
Update 1 :
I have contacted Crosman about my weapon, and they said they will replace my weapon... Today while inspecting the gun and trying out the ejector rod to remove the bullet cartridges, the rod came off as if it was very loose... it came off on its own after I used it to remove the cartridges. It's almost as if this gun is ready to fall apart even though it's NEW!
I just wish this gun was built much better! The loose/wobbly hammer & creaking squeaky grips must be improved! the plastic package it came with SHOULD be replaced with a regular box! The way you have to remove the grips in order to put the co2 cartridge in the gun is a BIG problem! It is annoying, hard, it can and will break the grip, makes the grip loose, and makes squeaky noises when held in hand. The grip is made with cheap plastic and I am 100% certain it will break one day! Why couldn't Crosman make it so that only one side of the grip comes off so you can access the co2 cartridge?? It's a very dumb! idea to make the whole grip come off. Or you can just leave the grips alone and redesign the gun so that you can put the co2 underneath the grip. And my BIGGEST PROBLEM is that my gun does NOT shoot straight! From 6 feet away I can not get my gun to hit bullseye continually. From 7 yards it's even worse!
I'll give updates, and test the replacement that I will get from Crosman once it arrives.
Update 2 :
YouTube review : [...]
I received my new replacement from Gravel Agency (Crosman) about a month ago.
Opened the blister pack, and this time I found a instruction manual... I inspected the gun and noticed that the new replacement has the same problems I had with the first gun, it still has a wobbly/loose hammer and grips, so I guess all SNR357s have this issue*. It doesn't bother me that much anymore but it would be much better if Crosman fixed it. I cleaned and loaded the gun and went outside to shoot, and it was great. The accuracy was much much better I got 1-2 inch groupings from 7 yards. After 1 week I noticed that when ever I pull back the hammer to cock the firearm I have a 'sticky' trigger, the trigger on the weapon does not always push forward freely... when I let go of the trigger with my finger it stays pulled back and does not release on its own. ALSO, when I pull back the hammer to cock the firearm at the same time holding the hammer back and slowly releasing the trigger to decock the firearm I get the "sticky trigger" issue AND also after releasing the trigger and hammer slowly from decocking the firearm, while still holding the trigger, the hammer gets very loose... once I release the hammer and trigger then the hammer is not VERY loose anymore, it only happens whenever I decock the firearm I did not have this on the first day when I received the replacement gun new, another problem which is not that big of a deal but still is worrisome is that the firearms metal frame slightly moves just a tiny bit, when you hold the guns grip in your hand and move the gun up and down you will hear and see that the gun frame moves a tiny bit. I am still thinking if I should get another replacement from Crosman since I do have a 1 year warranty.
Overall the new replacement shoots better and this time the blister pack included a manual... BUT the gun still has a loose hammer and grips and my gun now has a new problem, it has a sticky trigger. Crosman should replace the blister pack with a normal box like all firearm manufacturers. Overall I give this gun a 3.5 rating. I have a YouTube video review if anybody would like to see more about this gun... Thanks
Wow, so realistic! Cool, heavy, and smooth. The safety is kinda firm, and needs some oil and breaking in. But so far I’m impressed. Will update after shooting pellets and bb’s tomorrow. But on overal real look and feel. Even the brass casings, it’s crazy. As for the plastic handle, it’s not loose on mine and the inside housing for the co2 cartridge is metal. So it’s only the outer handle that’s plastic. Definitely recommend!
It's a decent replica firearm that can shoot .177 pellets using a co2 cartridge.
This is a nice gift for someone that wants to practice their aim without the bang and good for teaching someone basic gun safety as this will do a lot less damage than a real firearm and it's got a good weight so it doesnt actually feel like a toy
Good feel to it. Good weight. Decent muzzle speed for a snub nose. My only wish is that thwy rifled the barrel. 20 feet from the target sitting in a vice in an enclosed building with no wind and the grouping was like 2 to3 inches in diameter with crossman pellets. That seems to be acceptable if it where 20 yards not 20 feet. I also noticed all hits on the targets have elongated holes. Meaning the pellets are definatly tumbling. The smooth boar works as expected for bbs. Just think rifling would be dynamite for pellets. That way target practice would be a test of the shooters abilities rather then the gun.
Biggest piece of junk. The shell got stuck and can’t get it out without destroying it. Amazon said to return and didn’t do it in time
If you're looking for a BB gun to play around with, this is really a good one.
Feels good in your hand, solid and heavy. Hammer pulls back smooth, chamber is smooth rotating.
I was very pleased with this.
This thing is solid, very well made, has some serious weight to it, full metal, full function, nice easy action! Definitely NOT a toy! Can't wait to shoot some pop cans with this baby...
Me gusta mucho ????????
received an open box with nothing in the box. only resurfaced item which does not work at all. Returning for refund
Gun looks pretty nice, very realistic. Not very accurate though. Plastic handles that hide co2 tank are very flimsy and move around a lot. It actually broke so had to use a rubber band around to keep it in place. Very annoying. Other than that I like it. Shoots pellets and bbs. Medium loudness. When co2 gets low accuracy goes down dramatically. Not too bad for the price.
Update: I transfered the BBs to a larger container and realized how badly defective the majorities of these BBs are. I skimmed through the whole container and I would say a good 40% of the BBs have holes and dents. Check 2nd pic.
If you buy these, make sure to check!
I think you have to cut the container's tip open to allow the BB's to feed out.Well at least that's what I did. As far as the BB's go, they seem fine and consistent.
I shot about 300 rounds today and used the same 20 bb’s. My accuracy score was actually better on my last 5 target pages.
Bought alongside be guns for our daughters, worked great.
I can't say the product itself is bad because I haven't had the chance to use them BUT when the box arrived this is what I found. Nothing in the box to stabilize the bottle of bb's so the lid came off. ALL of the bb's were rolling around the box and some were falling out of the cracks of the box. I'm sure quite a bit were lost somewhere in transit. Not impressed.
1 star because it made me!!! Very displeased!!! Picked the package up from steps going into my house and thousands of bb's begin pouring out the bottom of the box. Don't be lazy like I was, and just go to a store and buy them. Not worth the trouble in any way what so ever!
Everything came in my box however the CO2 cartridge box was completely torn apart.
Let's start off with the price & the amount of copper BBs this Container brings.. now that's one hell of a Deal!
Before I give my Honest opinion I want to point out these are my first Copper BBs that I've bought.
At first glance the container looks nice with the fancy copperHead Design on it. The container Along with the BB's weight about 5-6 pounds maybe.. I didn't like how hard the cap it's placed, I tried to open it & ended up breaking it. (Look in the photos). The cap also does not bring a hole so you have to make a hole yourself. Good luck with that... I ended up putting all of them inside a water bottle.. anyways after finally getting the BB'a out I noticed Right of the bat the quality is not that good. There are some BB's that have Holes on them. due to that it has Made my Airsoft Pistol To Choke & not shoot.. that's why i think it deserves 4 stars
Your average joe here that shoots at the local range and desert.
So let me start by saying this, THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME BUT THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.
I’m not trying to bash any brand here but I got another brand bag (blue one) that has almost 1,000 5 Star reviews less then 1 year ago. After using it for less then 5 trips, it ripped beyond repair at where the shoulder straps are stitched. I mean, it felt like a cheap bag to begin with so I am not going to cry about it.
After searching and searching online, I found this new brand, Savior and really liked the Grey Color so I bought it. Got the bag yesterday and they look exactly the same as my old ripped bag, but a few things just seemed different about it. That’s when my OCD kicked in.
After checking and comparing them for the past 2 hours, I can say the Savior bag is much, much better in terms of quality. Here’s some pictures just to show my fellow gun nuts.
#1. The ZIPPERS:
Savior [Grey Bag] Thick. Heavy Duty and smoother IMO (even the para-cord are thicker)
Other Brand [ Blue Bag ] Not as smooth and flimsy
#2 The Stitching:
Savior [Grey Bag] Alot of the area are double stitched when other are single stitched
Other Brand [ Blue Bag ] Not going to comment, It ripped so im not too happy
#3 The Backpack Strap:
Savior [Grey Bag] Correctly Threaded thru
Other Brand [ Blue Bag ] Possible Defect? Simply just tie a knot there. LOL
#4 The Interior:
Savior [Grey Bag] Same heavy duty 600D fabric as the Outside. Way Better AA++++++
Other Brand [ Blue Bag ] Some sort of nylon. My muzzle brake pierced through it already
#5 The Fabric:
I am not a Tailor or fabric expert so I am basing off my personal opinion. Savior stated that they use 600D which is exactly what the Other brand stated. BUT they are NOT the SAME. The Blue bag feel cheaper and thin when you compare it to the savior. Dont know how to say this but the Savior bag they just seem tightly knitted and more robust. I counted the Thread on the savior and its almost double of my old blue bag.
Savior [Grey Bag] Thicker and tougher feel to it
Other Brand [ Blue Bag ] Thin and feel like reusable shopping bag
I am not sure if this bag is on sale or not but after checking Savior is cheaper in price then the Lower Quality Bag as of today. I am going to purchase a few more
I already had a high quality 36" case from a well-known company (Drago) and needed a 42" case. I was going to order another Drago case - but then I saw the Savior brand for a much lower cost. I can confirm that the Savior case is visibly identical quality to the name brand case. They appear to be made from the same exact components...and I would guess in the same factory. The country or origin label is even sewn inside in the exact same spot on both cases.
The zippers seem to be very strong and the fabric appears to be rugged...the padding is appropriately dense. I cannot find any fault with this case. A great purchase!
BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK.
When I first saw this bag I was a bit worried that it may not be as great of a quality as the other more expensive bag such as VISM DRAGO VOODOO Lancer but boy was I wrong.
-Stitching on this are way way BETTER then my broken VISM. VISM got this single stitch Molle strap but these are heavy duty stitching.
-All the information listed are ON POINT. Exactly the size shown in the picture. Good Job
-Price was unbeatable.
-Came in a Box and not folded in half like other.
-Now I am debating if I need to replace my other bags to these or not
-Bag Weight a bit more then my lancer and Vism. Not sure if its material used is better but it’s a bit heavier
I will attach a few picture to this review so you all can see what I mean.
I really like this rifle bag. It is of high quality and has tons of storage within. I elected for the 36" version to primarily fit my AR with a collapsible stock. I added a couple [[ASIN:B075M29RMY AMYIPO MOLLE Pouch Multi-purpose Compact Tactical Waist Bags]] and a [[ASIN:B01F6J375E EmbTao In GOD We Trust Embroidered Morale Patch]] to really complete the bag for me and couldn't be happier.
side note: I had hopes that my Winchester SXP Defender might fit too, but it didn't. Bag is sized as described, I should have ordered my shotgun first. I included pics to illustrate the size.
Loving this bag! I have not yet "used it" but the bag itself seems well constructed w/ sturdy materials, stitching, buckles, and zippers. Plenty of room to load up with mags and such. Fits my AR & AK comfortably. I added two pouches to the molle webbing...one on each side for extras. It does not come with the flag patch pictured, so bought a set of six to change in and out as wanted. I also like the back pack feature, as it can get heavy with two rifles, loaded mags, and the extras (tool kit, spotting scope).
I bought two bags, one from Voodoo and this brand and the photos attached are in pairs. 1st is the Voodoo and the second of the pair is the Savior. First off, the Savior was more the correct color, the Voodoo having more of a greenish hue.
Second, the molle on the Savior is more what I prefer. The Voodoo has a style that I felt was hard to work with. If you look at the stitching as well, I felt the quality was far better on the Savior.
Not a deal maker, but the interior color matched the outside of the bag on the Savior. And if you see the zippers, the pull strings remind me of shoe laces quality. They're thicker and feel heavy vs the Voodoo's, which felt like string in comparison.
Key takeaways that made my decision:
#1 the $30 savings.
And the color of the Savior was more what I thought would be coyote, vs the more green of the Voodoo. The stitching quality of was hands down better as well as the overall feel of the bag material. You won't notice pull strings unless you're comparing two bags next to each other but that was another big pro for me. One thing that I was initially upset about was that the "duffle" style sling was missing, but I'm really glad I don't have it. The Voodoo had one and was super inconvenient, every time I wanted to open the rifle portion of the bag I had to unhook one of the clips due to the mounts being on either side of the zippers. Really dumb if you ask me, so I'm glad I don't have a random strap sitting around.
With both bags next to each other, it wasn't hard to decide which to return. Even if the Savior was the same price as the Voodoo's bag, I'd still return the Voodoo.
Shipped fast. This bag out the packaging was magnificent. Lets get down to what you need to hear from me.
construction is sturdy.
The material and the zippers feel like high quality... and they are to me.
Velcro is strong. (Comes with a spot to attach patches.)
Zipper has loops to lock
It matches my rifle color
The back pack is not hard to wear
Plenty of pockets and room to store stuff for range day or hunting trip.
you can’t lock it with a big lock but you knew that already(you shouldn’t get discouraged if you intend to use this bag to keep persistent People out of it. Buy a hard case or a safe for that)
The back pack portion has a lot of stuff going on.. takes a minute to figure out how to set everything so its usable. But if you don’t intend to use it then A leave them alone or B. Cut them off or remove them.
Everyone carries different but I recommend cutting some foam like in my picture to protect your scope or rifle from any rubbing especially if you got those custom paint jobs.
I used one of those long gun locks which happebs to be the perfect length between both zipper locks. I locked both pouches with one with lock. And these locks are usually given free so i onow most of you gun buffs...have a basket full.
Great bag great price.
I have a .300Blackout with 16in Barrel and it fits nice and snug with stock retracted...
I ordered this bag due to the prior reviews, and the price it is offered at. It came in one day (lucky me) and was delivered to my door in a nice heavy box (see pic) once opened I found my bag within a plastic bag for further protection as well as three silica packs to keep things dry. I was more then pleased with the overall look right off the bat, it's heavy duty, well constructed and looks like it should cost much more than it did. Starting with the zippers (see pic), they are large and well constructed, the two sets that open the main bag for your rifles and the smaller pouch for your pistol are both lockable. The zippers track are heavy, wide and the zipper slides effortlessly along them. All zippers have a paracord pull. Opening up the bag's main compartment finding two well padded and separated storage areas for your rifles. There are also two velcro straps and two 1/4 pockets to help tuck away the butt stock and barrel. Next I move on to the backpack straps, they are well stitched, padded, have multiple adjustment points and look to be removable. On the front of the bag there are three compartments each closed with both a clip and velcro. The two on the outer side have a divider and look to be able to hold 2-4 magazines. The larger one in the middle has no divider and is very large inside, it also has velcro on the outside for a patch to be placed. Each one of these compartments as stated are closed with velcro and a clip but once opened they also have an adjustable elastic pull to help keep your items from moving around, one nice touch is the locks on the elastic has a strap so you can't lose them. If these three compartments were not enough, there's also has two zipper compartments with very well stitched mole straps so you can add to this bag. Last but not least on the front of this bag is yet another compartment behind the three pouches for your pistols. Once opened you find two padded compartments for two pistols, the velcro holds tight and the padding will keep your items protected and secure. Also inside you will find two more zipper compartments large enough for a few items but the material might only hold up to softer items being stored within them. The clips are large and all points are well secured. All the stitching is well done, I found no defects and was surprised at how well it was done. All and all, this bag is AMAZING! I was unsure as to what I was going to get at the price but now having it I would have paid more and still been just as pleased.
I used to carry two rifles to the range in hard cases for each, plus ammo, a range bag with parts, sand bag, tools, etc. It would require many trips back and forth to carry downstairs, out to the truck, etc.
Now I can fit both rifles, ammo, and most of the other items I would take to the range in this Savior bag. I still carry a smaller range bag with tools, etc. but what used to take 4 trips is now just 2.
Loaded up, the case is heavy, but as a backpack even this 60 year old 5'7" 200 lb grandpa can manage it. Carrying using the hand grip is not a problem just easier as a backpack. There are a couple of metal "D" loops on the top if I wanted to add a shoulder strap and try that sometime but for now as a backpack works fine.
I keep the rifles stored in their hard cases but this bag will go with me to the range from now on.
I love everything about this gun. Super great feeling in the hand, good weight, the blow back is actually nice to have and the iron sights are good.
If I could change anything? I do think the trigger pull is a little different, but I don't consider it an issue. The only other thing would be the safety. I would like it to have an option to have the safety be flipped on and off easily (like it has) AND then have an option to secure it so the safety can't be accidentally bumped off.
I included a picture of my first shots with this gun (I know I am terrible, no need to remind me)
Overall.... love 1911's and this is a fantastic gun. Considering getting different versions of this gun because I love it so much
It's really fun too shoot it's strong too but tha hammer on tha back tha pieces if it are coming off as im shooting it but over all its a great co2 pistol so I recommend buying it
Really awesome co2 gun shoots nice and is very heavy duty feeling
It worked fine for five months then one day when I decided to put in a new Co2 cartridge it started leaking..... Really bad. I've tried different cartridges but the second I put it in it starts spraying it out, I even somehow injured my thumb from the sudden explosion of ice cold Co2.
Bordallo Outdoor Products are the best and they ship fast in a properly packaged protected box. the 1911 Tanfoglio is more challenging and is recomended for guys like me with knowledge of all brand pistols, this item is heavy, all metal for ages 18 & up. the Co2 IS EASY TO LOAD ALONGESIDE THE BBs which is not so easy to load Unless you have strong fingers to hold back the spring in place, *People complained about Misfire or Jammed BBs, I think because they use regular BBs, NO. you must use swiss arms BBs or all STEEL BBs, in order to get better shots. I will Re-Post in 1 month to let you know how its holding up, if my theory is Correct, then this is a fun pistol to practice with. or target practice on Zombie targets.
Works perfect in my Colt Commander..
Awesome, fun to shoot, easy to function, co2 install was super easy with no leaking (as of yet). Decently loud, blowback action is not even noticeable though. Was expecting more kick from a fully metal BB gun. Got the pearl grips which make it look super old school, the ones it comes with are cheap plastic but that was the only plastic on entire pistol. Loading bbs is a pain but worth it cuz the gun is so fun to shoot. A+ air gun.
I've had this Tanfoglio for about 3 months now, with just minor magazine issues. Ive had the magazine leak a couple times. But all can be fixed. It feels really good in your hand, but maybe I suggest changing the grip. Sounds amazing but not too loud. It only comes with one magazine, but I bought an extra just in case. Other than that, LOVE the product!
Great Product recommended fun to have ..,.
Good price, however itd be nice to know youre going to sharpie all over it before you send
If you're thinking of getting it just do it is amazing it woun let you down butif you have small hand it might be a problem remember this gun is a replica of a 1911-a1 is a big gun and i have medium size hands abd still found it a little to big
The closest bb gun to the real thing you will find. The co2 and bb's in the magazine makes reloading just like the real thing. Grips are plastic so I replaced them with wood ones for a commander model 1911. A little finger sanding and they fit great.
This gun is very realistic and sow awesome, thanks.
Worth it, I put new grips on it. The stock grips felt cheap. Great gun, very cool
recieved this gun very fast, it is everything it says it is. for the price how can i complain, i don't worry about trigger pull or pinpoint accuracy. it will make a great gun for my fishing bucket, i also have the C-41, C-11, Umarex XBG all of these are refurbished and look new and you get 60-80 hard shots. sure some might rattle a bit but are 100% better than what i had as a kid growing up. these are great 7-10 yds guns and would most likely kill birds and small critters but please leave nature alone, what's cool is shooting 3/8"sheetrock it produces a puff of dust on exiting.. go online and buy a lot of 500 powerlets i think i paid $140.00 which is more than i paid for all 4 guns also paid $42.00 for 15,000 bbs. my next move will be getting a PCP gun in 25cal, my friend has 1 and you hit can at 75yds, it a big jump in price but you only live once. remember to use a drop PELLGUN OIL everytime you change your co-2. well remember to respect mother nature and may the force be with you!!!
I nice pistol that has alot of power! Love it!
Its a nice pistol and it feels great. Its not metal its like very strong plastic. I haven't shot it yet but I've seen some videos on the gun and its very strong. The safety glasses are adjustable and it does come with 350 silver bb's and 3 CO2 12g cartridges. It also comes with paper practice sheets too shoot at. Over all this gun is quality and i would buy it. When i do shoot it ill come back and leave my perspective on it. The clip is internel and it holds up to 21 bb's. There is no blow back and theres no slide.
This is the power, use it be careful.
Safety issue with this pistol. Had it for some months then I put another co2 cartridge in and turned the tightening knob. The tank shot out and almost hit my $2,600 fridge. It hit my Level 5 one year old kitchen cabinets. I am contacting this gun company today about this issue. The cartridge is half exposed when installing and it decide to shoot out like a pinball in my kitchen. Very scary for two of us in the house at the time. What if it hit someone in the face?? Attached is a photo of my cabinet damage where is hit and tumbled and hit a second time then continued to bounce around in the kitchen.
I disassembled the rifle and discovered the problem. The piston spring has broken about 3 inches from the rear end. It then rotated and screwed itself forward into the coils of the larger part of the spring and climbed over the coils blocking the sear from engaging the piston. It is a shame that I can't get parts from Gamo, because this is by far the easiest air rifle I have ever worked on. I could replace the spring in less than 5 minutes if I could get one. I own 3 Gamo's.
Mine no longer works. The sear doesn't not engage the piston, it can't be cocked. Gamo has not responded in any way for assistance in getting it fixed. I own and maintain over 30 air rifles and am quite capable of fixing this if I can get the parts. It seems I can't. I have had great service from several other air rifle manufactures and distributers. It makes more sense to send a qualified owner a $5 part than to expect them to pay $50 to ship the entire rifle back and forth. I can fix the rifle faster than I can package it and mail it but only if I can get the parts.
This rifle just keeps getting better with use. I have now shot close to 1,000 pellets thru it. Several styles of pellets that it shot just O.K. when new, it now shoots them very, very good. I have a large quantity of daisy wad cutters that I bought for less than 1/2 cents each on clearance at local farm supply stores. [[ASIN:B0002XP1NG 177 Cal. Flathead Pellets 500 ct]] None of my other 177 cal. guns, rifles or pistols shoot them worth a darn. In my Hatsan 125 and Edge magnum springers [[ASIN:B007ZCKO3O Hatsan 125TH Air Rifle Combo, Camo Stock air rifle]] [[ASIN:B00ZQ2U62Y Hatsan Edge Air Rifle, Vortex Piston, Black air rifle]] these pellets are only useful for the considerable exercise I get cocking the rifle. Now that the Gamo Varmint is broken in, it now shoots the Daisy pellets almost as well as the high quality H&N match rifle pellets. This makes for very economical plinking. Unlike the Magnum springers This rifle is so easy to cock that you get little exercise doing it
I set up the crono to see why another New rifle of mine was behaving badly, (velocity about half of what it should be) and as long as I had it set up I ran a few rifles thru it to see what they would do. My Gamo Varmint is pushing 8.18 grain H&N wad cutter lead pellets at a consistent 910 feet per second. EXCELENT results.
I have found a pellet that this rifle has fallen in love with. H&N Match Rifle wad cutter pellets, 8.18 grain. [[ASIN:B003XTPEO2 H&N Match Rifle, .177 Cal, 4.49mm, 8.18 Grains, Wadcutter, 500ct]] This pellet makes this rifle think it is a PCP. It just puts them exactly where you point the gun. This target was shot at 10 meters from a bag rest by a 68 year old guy who doesn't see all that well. Shots #1 and #2 Were scope adjustment shots dialing in the point of impact for the new pellets. This is great performance from such a moderately priced gun with a non AO scope. This rifle shoots many pellets moderately well. It has a very nice trigger, making it easy to shoot accurately. The safety that does not reset itself is a feature I really like especially when target shooting. I like this almost as much as my gas piston Benjamin Prowler. This is probably the easiest to shoot spring powered rifle that I own. The recoil and torque are very moderate.
I have a lot of air rifles. This one is in the top half of its class. It is usably accurate and the supplied scope is very nice. The parallax is set to air rifle range, making 10 meter target shooting relatively easy. The gun has very moderate cocking effort and a decent trigger. The rifle is lightweight making it easy to carry for hunting or plinking. The recoil is moderate and the spring torque is minimal, aiding its accuracy. Shooting off a bag rest, punching holes in paper It does not posses the pin point accuracy of some of my rifles but for off hand plinking and hunting it is just fine. I am the limiting factor when doing those activities. I have not yet found a rifle that can compensate for my lack of stability. I have discovered that taping a 3 cell Maglite to the end of the barrel when hunting coons, helps a lot! The considerable weight calms things down a bit.
So far it is just a nice rifle, I have only put 2 or 3 hundred pellets thru it. It may get a little better with more use. If it does I will update my review.
I want to start off by saying that this is an INCREDIBLE rifle for the price. I have had 2 other breakbarrels (both crosman) and have had an interesting experience with them. The triggers we're absolute trash, and accuracy was mediocre. 2 years go by and my airgun passion is once again ignited. I did some researching and ended up buying this rifle. Compared to the nitro pistons on the crosmans, this definitely has a bit of buzz, and ruff cocking, but things smoothed out after around 200 shots or so. Using the ARTILLERY HOLD, the accuracy was just incredible. 30 yards free standing, 1 inch group. Absolutely incredible. The stock is so comfortable, and looks incredible. It is very light and easy to hold stable. Using crosman hollow points, it is a tight fit, which is good for accuracy, but you will need a small tool to drive the pellet in the barrel so it fits flush, or else your fingers will start to hurt. I am ordering a once piece mount for the scope just to have absolutely no movement, but the normal rings will do if you use the stop pin. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this rifle to anyone looking to end a small animals life, or to just plink around. It is probably the best value airgun on the market as of right now. Just make sure to learn the ARTILLERY HOLD.
This thing rocks! Accurate and lightweight. Packs a punch at the other end for sure! Scope ain't that bad but not awesome. You could definitely replace it and get a better one for longer range. I can shoot at 30 - 40 yards with the stock scope a nice grouping . Beyond that, kinda sketchy . Anyway. Didn't give me any problems after 300-350 pellets so 5 starts from me.
This thing combined with DESTROYER pellets has been an absolute godsend for me.... I’ve had a huge green iguana infestation on my property and got tired of cleaning up after them and dealing with them on my roof / back patio..... The accuracy of this thing is amazing when the scope is zero’d in. I post up in the back seat of my truck and just pick these things off one by one. The 1200fps combined with the destroyer pellets ensure that one shot rips clean through the skull of these things, leaving bleedout the only cleanup necessary
First impressions: the box is big and very long. The gun is heavy; it is larger than I expected. It could EASILY pass as a .308 at first glance. The scope seems like it’s well made despite being the stock OEM scope. At this point I have not fired it. I cocked it and dry fired one time just to see how hard the break barrel was to cock (not hard at all, honestly) and it was LOUD. I was in my basement, so it’s not exactly like I have great acoustics, but I was shocked how loud. Almost .22LR loud. Dry fired a second time, outside this time, and it still seemed really loud and sharp.
Range test #1- 11/25/2018
Took it out for the first 40-50 pellets to try and start the sighting in process. I’m only using the stock scope, and with no iron sights whatsoever the initial shots took a while to find paper. I bought some Gamo Tomahawk 7.8 Grain pellets to break it in, and after about 25 shots I was able to get a grouping of 10 shots in a 2” by 1” pattern at around 20 yards. The stock scope isn’t anything to write home about, but in my opinion took an awfully over exaggerated beating in the one-star reviews. It’s not gonna blow you away but it is far from the piece of garbage a lot of the reviews are hitting it up as. I was also happy to report that the gun seemed MUCH more quiet once it started throwing lead, which was nice. Break action seemed smooth, and like I said earlier it wasn’t too hard to cock. I’m thinking my ten year old step son should be able to handle it just fine.
I will update my review in the coming weeks or months as I get a few hundred pellets through it. So far, can’t say enough good things about this rifle!
Range day number two:
It’s been a few weeks but I was able to get it out in the back yard to play around yesterday and I’d say I put another 30 pellets through it in an hour or so. At around 50 ft I was pulling two inch groupings of five shots. (I actually put 5 Crosman Premier pointed 7.4 grain pellets just to see what would happen and I found the same group, but it was literally five to six inches directly right of target. Weird.) pushed back to around 75 ft, I was getting five to six inch groups including a flyer or three. I admit I wasn’t taking my time and I’m not an experienced rifle shooter by any stretch, but it seems as the barrel “warms up” the groups get tighter. With a few hundred more pellets, I think this thing has potential to be a really fun plinker. Oh, and as of now my 10 year old step son can not break the barrel. However I told him I’d buy him his own when he can ???????????? I’ll update again in several months once I’ve got 500 pellets through it, unless something significant happens.
Oh I forgot to mention I taped together some cardboard U-HAUL moving boxes I had and with the GAMO Tomahawk pellets I’d say 90-95% went clean through the cardboard with no problem. 16 layers of corrugated cardboard, bound together tight. Plan your berm accordingly!
I’d give it six stars if I could. I’ve put probably 300 or so pellets through it, so I’d say it’s decently broken in. After watching and reading about how to be a better shooter (I’m just an amateur with medium experience) I learned that I was shooting what was considered to be “long range” for a pellet gun. Today I set my targets at 10 yds, and about 15 yds. to see what kinds of groups I would pull with the GAMO tomahawks. My first 5 pellets were touching. The site isn’t spot on, but the groupings were consistent! I’ll post some pics of the grouping I got. With some site adjustment, you can absolutely drive tacks with this thing. Incredible. I made a little shooting range and laid out 8 beer bottle caps, and hit every single one at 30 feet. I couldn’t love this rifle more.
I originally gave this a 1 star because GAMO cus service is non existent and the scope isn't so easy to put on(at least for a newbie like me)but the gun is exceptional, especially for the price
It looks and feels like a real rifle. I love the heavy and sturdy feel. It is easy to load a pellet and feels smooth to reload. The sound imo is perfect. It's loud but not too loud(I was worried it would be too loud from soome reviews I read). You know it's a pellet gun and not a 22. At least here in my neighbors definitely know the difference. It makes quick work of the Pigeons who eat chicken feed, poop all over the yard(risking disease 4 our flock) and generally being a nuisance to my neighbors and I. I feel like they suffer more with a BB gun or a weaker pellet gun but this GAMO rifle sends them to the other side quickly.
Anyways, sorry to ramble but I wanted you to know this gun is great but their customer service is not. That is the only reason I'm going with a 4 cause this gun is definitely a 5 star pigeon destroyer.
*Original review*The instructions are Greek to me. "align the vertical and horizontal post axes of reticle with the vertical and horizontal bore axes" WTH does that mean?lol
The recoil pin is weird. It doesn't screw in to anything it just pushes the mount away from the gun. The rail is super thin. I don't see how it can possibly hold the scope and neither did the guy at Shoppers who sells GAMO pellet guns.
I can't even figure out how to get in touch with GAMO to see what is wrong. When I touch the number they give you it says "your call cannot be completed as dialed" ugh...who has time for all this nonsense?
It's a bummer because this looks like a well made gun. I will have to take it to a gun shop and until then the pigeons will continue tormenting our poor chickens...
Original review (12/30): I was impressed on the size and feel of this gun. As several others stated, its heavier than expected. Some have stated this is a loud pellet gun; I guess that depends on what you expect. Yes, its louder than a BB gun but much quieter than a 22LR (real gun), way quieter. While I overall like this gun, I have concerns about accuracy which I why I gave 4 stars. A few reviewers make comments about reading the instructions regarding the scope install; I've read them about 3 or 4 times and its no help. I did read where one reviewer called Gamo who admitted that it takes 50 to 100 shots before its accurate; seems odd but okay. Several reviewers stated how accurate the gun but it has not been for me. In one of my photos, there are 3 shots to the right of the bulls eye. As you can see from the other pics, I used a sighting stand. All 3 shots were back-to-back and all to the right. These shots were made after I thought I had zero'd in the scope in previous shots. I shot 3 more times and you can see in next pic they kinda zero in around my middle shot in the first pic. So, I zero'd in these shots and it was now shooting 1" high and 1/2" to left or right...very inconsistent. I'm guessing I've shot about 30 to 40 rounds so far. Got tired screwing with it so gave up for the day. This is the most effort I've ever put into sighting a scope (it took me 4 shots with my 7Mag deer rifle) so I'm going to hang in there to see if I eventually get there. Will update later.
The scope that this airgun comes packaged with is a total piece of crap. While trying to zero, aming at the middle of an 8x11 piece of computer paper well braced shooting from a "bench" at 10 yards, only one of three shots landed on paper!! Turret adjustments are meaningless. I put a low end Nikon scope onto it, onto the included rings, it is flawless, I can stack pellets at 10y.
Photo shows the obscenely oversized box that it shipped in...
Bought the airgun for pest control. Initially sighted-in with lead pellets but after about 100 shots decided to upgrade to the faster PBA Platinum pellets (spec'ed at 1250 fps). The picture shows the distribution of 11 pellets on a target at ~20 yards. Overall, very happy with the handling of the Varmint, little recoil, no scope creep (make sure to follow the installation instructions that include the lock pin!), lightweight and fits nicely in a standard carrying case. The airgun is loud, more so shooting with PBA pellets. Something to consider if that's a possible issue in your environment / neighborhood.
Update: considering upgrade to a more powerful 0.22, likely Gamo Magnum. I'm not thrilled about using toxic lead pellets but there's no other way to get sufficient impact without lead weight as far as I can tell, which is needed for adult iguanas pest control.
The rifle has a little weight to it. So I made a strap for it using an old belt i had laying around the house.
FUN FUN! This is the bb gun I always wanted when I was 16. Full auto selection, blow back, slide lock on last round. Field strips identical to the real one. Weight is similar to the real one. You can see through the mag well to the ejection port. Not much off from the real one. It is full metal along with the mag. The slide pull is heavy for a BB gun, pretty close to a .22lr. Most of the internals seem to me metal aside from a few bb specific parts. I'm using this as a trainer weapon for my kids. And then when they are not around, I'm going to blow through multiple mags on full auto, because doing it with a real firearm is too expensive. Even if you are a firearm guy, this air gun will earn your respect.
Stop thinking of buying any other air gun and get THIS ONE now. You will not be disappointed. From the moment I opened the box, I have been in love. It shoots very well and fairly accurate. I purchased a (Weaver rail) laser sight and the accuracy improved to near perfect. FULL AUTO - - - Need I say more? It really does shoot full auto, doesn't jam, sounds amazing.
The blow back is perfect and pretty realistic. It's a huge aid with learning how to hold, breathe, etc. when shooting. But with this air gun - you can shoot in your BEDROOM if you want!
The only thing I'd recommend when purchasing this piece = Be very VERY careful if you're out in public or around people. This air gun is extremely realistic and so far, not one person I've shown it to (without looking down the barrel, of course) has been able to tell it's not a real Beretta until they held it themselves and inspected it.
The purchase of this air gun has prompted me to start collecting more. I've found a new hobby! Excellent product, Umarex!!!
Pretty good gun,mounted a flashlight to the rail and it fits very well.only issue out of the box is that the mag is tough to load at first and you have to really work the bb into the mag,but after loading about two mag fulls it breaks the plastic in and makes it easier to load,also another issue is it seems to have some cycling issues when firing for the first time,had to rack a new bb a couple times to finish the first mag i ran through it,hopefully it is just an "out of the box" issue and will go away after a few more mags get ran through it.other than that.really solid gun,i would recommend
My favorite air gun so far. Extremely realistic looking and weight. 10/10
I polished the Barrel and magazine. Will polish the whole gun soon
Best value on an air gun I've ever purchased.. excellent Gun.. exactly like the original firearm...This is truly almost identical to my 9mm Beretta..same weight..feel...look... operation..I am truly impressed
I LIKE THE UNIT BUT I NEED 2 NEW CLIPS AS I LOST THE BACK BB PLATE AND SCREW TRYING TO LOAD IT, SO I NEED 2 NEW CLIPS, ELSE GREAT ITEM AND SELLER, CANCEL THE CANCEL ORDER, I WILL TAKE THE LOSS~~A FRIEND
Fun to shoot ..however the bb's are scraping the feeding ramp. Also there is this little piece of metal spring that is sticking out in front of the pin where my slide catch is position.
Sexy looking, good feeling, good shooting, gun.
I was really looking forward to this gun. I got it and unboxed it then took the screw out for the cO2 and it would never screw back in. Disappointed....
