Written on: 14/05/2010

I bought a GAMO 440 hunter, its probably a manufacturing fault but the mechanism sounds wrong.
it produces a sustained springing noise not unlike Zepadee from the magic roundabout, "BOING!"
The original power of the gun was lost after the first fifty rounds or so and the spring sound continued to get worse , Has anyone else had this problem?

Yes i did when i first bought mine, it also made 'boinging' sounds. Turned out the spring snapped, so i sent it back to the shop i bought it from and they sent it back to BSA (whom own gamo) to have a new spring and seals fitted free of charge. Try sending it back at the shop you bought it from and see what they say.

Same problem with my Gamo Hunter 440. I bought mine about 10 years ago and have not used it many times because of this. Very loud clanggggg from the spring and looses power after a few shots. Have changed the pads/rings as i was told it was loosing air and reducing the power. Again after around 20 shots lost all power.
very disappointing as i am a big fan of Gamo products.

I never wanted a rifle that many people have, but I'll never regret buying this Gamo Hunter 440. This one is as acurate as my old match rifle (Gamo MC Contest) but much more powerful which is better if you adjust your sights / scope for a short distance. I don't have to change anything in my scope if I shoot at 10 meter or 40 meter distance… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2009

I am looking for a new air rifle and was handed a Gamo Hunter 440, without scope. I went to the shooting range to a fire a few shots and found that the standard sights were incredibly accurate and that the gun was incredibly light. I easily bullseyed the close targets and resorted to the full length of the small range (about 32yards) and had a 5p grouping with the iron sights at that range. Incredible. I will be going back to buy the gun soon with a scope to see what it is really capable of in… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2009 by cole5169 (19 reviews written)

Last Fall I took advantage of a sale through Cabela's, and bought a refurbished Gamo Hunter 440 package which included a 4x32 scope and mounts. The package cost all of $110 US, including shipping. Pretty good, all in all.

The Gamo Hunter 440 is a .177 calibre, break-barrel pellet rifle with a spring-piston powerplant. The grossly exaggerated press would have you believe it develops muzzle velocities of 1,100 feet per second -- the true, real-world performance is more in the range of 800-850… Read Full Review

Greetings;
<br/> No air rifle will shoot good groups until it's properly broken in especially low end rifles like Gamo's. Most air rifles will not group if held tightly in a vice. If you tell me a little more about your pellets you are using,holding techniques,how many rounds you've shot through your rifle so far perhaps I could be of some help. I own and reviewed this weapon and at at this price point think it's a good gun. That said there are some simple things you could try that could make a noticeable improvement in accuracy.
