    Meteor Mark 7

    I think this is a Gamo now, supposed to be full power.

    I bought one last week as a club gun. We have a member with a Supersport; he tried out the Meteor (which is now a full size rifle and full power too) and he says, he doesn't know what it is about it but he likes it so much he doesn't want to put it down.

    I've handled it but not shot it; it seems to be a really convenient gun, it comes to the shoulder well, and the little fibre optic open sights are a delight.

    Yes, made in Spain; so?

    Good gun had one a bit twangy, stripped and re-lubed it very good and accurate rifle.

    Excellent little rifle for the money

    Thanks

    I'm affraid that it is a shadow of all former Meteor models. It wouldn't be so bad if it was 100, but it ain't. We all know of the cost of things these days & we all know it's a Gamo, but it's not a patch on the quality of previous models, especially not for the price.

    Have a look on the B.S.A.O.G site.

    Far too many rifles & pistols to mention here.

    Thats good news Richard.
    Your instinct to take it proved correct.
    For the money they are an absolute bargain.
