General Comments
I bought this gun at Walmart for about $130. It was branded at a "model 1100". It included the ss1000 and a beeman 3-9x32 scope. The mounts and scope are well made and hold firm to the gun. I only wish the scope had a tiny bit more magnification. I have spent a lot of time with the gun in the last few days, and it appears to have been "broken-in".



Tried five different pellet brands, and gamo-hunter and gamo-rocket have worked the best for me. I went ahead and got a Beeman pellet trap 3 days ago. The gamo-rockets proceeded to smashed all the metal tagets to bits! I prefer gamo pellets because they fit snuggly in the chamber. Daisy flat-tops were too loose and not as accurate. My SS1000 likes heavy, fat ammo.



It took a while to sight the scope. Of course, different brand/weight pellets required re-sighting, but a finally settled on gamo-hunter. At 40 yards, the ss1000 will consistantly hit a silver dollar sized target. The groupings are nice and tight. The sights are ajustable and work well. I would like metal sights better. Power is very respectable.



The ss1000 as a fine, durable small-game break-barrel. It has the power and accuracy.

UPDATE: Forget Gamo Rocket! RWS Meisterkugeln is FANTASIC! Very consistant! Gamo varies too greatly from size and weight.

<br/>I have now shot about 2500 rounds from the Beeman SS1000, and it has really smoothed-out. The trigger is more predictable and the accuracy is much better. From 45 yards, I can consistantly hit a quarter sized target. At this point I can honestly say that the weakest link with this gun is the shooter!!

Hello,
<br/> No I have not measured the FPS. The gun is rated at 1000. I will say that it hits targets HARD with Beeman Kodiac!

UPDATE:
<br/> Beeman Kodiak pellets are even better! Heavy pellets seem to do best with this gun. Straightshooters.com sells a cleaner/degreaser that works wonders at cleaning the barrel. Followed that with some beeman mp5 oil. Trigger pull can be improved by putting a very little amount of Beeman moly paste on the sear. Yesterday I popped a rat at 45 yards, head shot!
