Nice look, accurate, best plasic I have ever seen.
Plastic gun, elevation is not adjustable, low power, no possibility to mount a scope.
I bought this Gamo P-800 air pistol in a pack with pellet trap and pellets for €65. I was pleased since the first shot. For shooting at 6 meters this gun is well fitted and the pastic? It feels so massive, that I think if you throw this gun as far as you can, after it it will work without no problems.(nt) the power was low at all. i tried different pellets but i can't reach the velocity of 100m/s. I measured with my self made chrono with RWS Hobby 4.5g: 94m/s. this is about 2 Joule. I tried to power up this gun by changing the spring and maintainig the gun with stag fat. I build in a much more heavier spring. this spring was so strong, i colnd't believe it.the shooting sound was loud, i colnd't believe it. the pellet speed 101m/s. for this sound...diappionting. because the interior of the gun is plastic and the shooting sound was so intense, i decided to rebuild my original spring because i won't damage my gun. now i tried to increase accuracy by increasing the weight of the gun. i disassemble the gun and i filled every hollow space with lead balls. these little ones (0.1g) you need for fishing. to fix them all, i use hot glue. than i baked the parts of my gun in my oven at 120 C for 2h before i reassembe it.the result is gobsmacking! the gun double it's weight, the accuracy is significantly increased, the shooting feeling is much more better and now it feels like a gun! it is fitted to give a sure shoot at 10 Meters. as i said: "the accuracy is significantly increased". I can recommend this procedure !!!
until now i do up to 2000 shots with my gun without any problems.
I give 10 Stars for the value of money bacause this gun is easy to disasseble and every part of this gun has a very solid look though it was plastic. and the accuracy ? since i modified my gun, i am afraid by myself how dangerous i am.
tdt( total disassemble time ) is below one minute. i realy like my p800.
for overall rating i give 8 stars because there are better products than the p800. but since the weight increasing, it is only the leak of power and its consequences that displease.
