i looked back through the postings to see what was said about gamo rifles. I was suprised to see they were a bit slated. I own a 440 in 22cal and i am more than happy with it the accuracy is good it is reliable and well made. I realise there are better rifles on the market however here in nz they are not cheap a decent webly or hw is twice the price . the point im making is that the best thing about air rifles is they are inexpensive. if i was going to spend two weeks wages on a rifle i would buy a 22 rimfire ruger semi auto or similar and have better accuracy far more firepower and lest weight to cart about .

I've got nothing against Gamo. For several years my main rifle was a CF30. It obviously won't break any accuracy or power records, and to start with peformance was a little inconsistent, but once I'd put a couple of tins of pellets through it it settled down nicely. It was a little pellet-fussy, preferring Gamo's own brand pellets to H&N FTT, which are my general preference. However, it filled its share of game bags, and though I now tend to use a Webley PCP or an Xocet, I still use the CF30 from time to time and get good results from it.

too true different gun like different pellets mine shoots best with gamo pro mag or gamo hunter but h&n are close behind but are my preffered choice because the have more stopping power
