I bought the 177 version of the Cometta air rifle with a Hawke 4 x 40 scope and crossman accupel ammo it is accurate and will knock an adult rabbit down at 50 yards with a headshot. The shop I bought it at zeroed the sights on the bench and I fine tuned it at home.
Penetration is great and accuracy. It is best to rest against a tree to enable a good shot as you can get the wobbles free standing. It is a fine piece of kit. I have loaned it to a friend to eradicate rabbits in his garden he shot 3 with 3 pellets and he is not a shooter normally so it is great for new enthusiasts.
The gunshop owner recommended it in 177 as there is less affect on this size pellet by the wind as it is aerodynamically superior and penetrates. Firing at a solid lead target the pellet flattens totally and is absorbed by the target.. It goes through normal lead sheet at about 1/8th of an inch thick at 25 yards.
