“Don't buy it”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by Cochranpv7 (1 review written)

This gun had good power for the first 250 shots and then it fell off noticibly. It is loud, heavy,and hard to load. Also I could not make this gun hit the same place twice. It shoots all over the place. I have several air rifles and this is by far the most inaccurate. Gamo customer support is as bad as the gun. I would recommend that you look at something else… Read Full Review

“Reviews with scope problems sum up my experience”

Written on: 25/07/2013 by MGHunt (1 review written)

I was really excited with the initial accuracy of the gun. After about 25 shots I was all over the place. I noticed the scope had slid almost entirely off the mount. I cranked it down and it moved after 5 shots. had to buy a scope stop (from gammo)- pd. $12 for stop and $11 to ship it. It worked but within 10 shots the reticle was crooked... Boxed it up- returned it- got a Stoeger X20 suppressor. so far, so good. Really disappointed. I wanted to like the gun but not worth the troubles… Read Full Review

Hei, MG.
You rifle are very powerful. Thats means, you have to use heavy pellets !!.

“This thing will kill animals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 27/06/2012

I have the Gamo Hunter Extreme in the .25 cal and have killed many living creatures with it. This thing will take out a deer with no problem. If you enjoy the art of hunting and killing harmless creatures the Hunter Extreme is a dream. This thing will blow a huge hole out of a rabbits hide. You will love this air rifle if you know how to shoot it. I loved the power of the guns velocity and the distance that a mark can be attained within. I wish I had known how much I would be shotting this… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2011

i think there should be a rule that you have to learn the artilary hold for spring air rifles before you write a review so many ppl bash this rifle
and infact if you knew how to properly shoot a springer
you would be very supprised with the great accuracy of the hunter extreme
im talking about hole in hole shots at 40 yards
its a great gun buy it if you can
if you have never owned a springer study the artilary hold
dont go into something new thinking you know what you are doing
artilary… Read Full Review

I bought this rifle as to upgrade in power from my gamo varmint.at first i thought i wasted my money,its heavy, difficult to cock,and the trigger was like trying to clamp a vise grip.accuracy was all over the place but i soon discovered it wasnt the rifle it was the scope,the paralax was so bad i'd get 5" groups at 30'.bought a red dot sight and this gun will put pellets through the same hole all day long.charliedatuna.com sells a trigger for this gun that turns it into a very acceptional… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2009

I purchased my Gamo Hunter Extreme from MidwayUSA along with several .177 pellet styles; including Gamo Gold. Great look'n heavy weight rifle. I am typically a very good shot, but even from bench with sand bags, I could not get the groups to settle even within inches. This is the only firearm I have ever returned, but Midway refunded promptly… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/01/2009

This gun is like carrying a bag of bricks all day. I have a Muzzle loader that weighs less. Not hunter friendly if you like to be on the move when hunting.
Too many other .22 air guns on the market that do the same and cost half as much. Would not reccomend. I have a Beeman RS2 made in China that cost 1/5 th the price and is an all around better gun… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2009 by darkclark (1 review written)

Buy a GAMO rifle, its fun. I am new to the air rifle world. This gun is pretty kick butt. I first bought a crosman g1extreme as a joke to shoot beer cans with college buddies and upgraded to the gamo .22 hunter extreme. Loving it so far. Squirrels will not get my tulips this year. The Gamo hunter Extreme is pretty heavy though but still recommend… Read Full Review

I bought the rifle for hunting. Terribly inaccurate. I would no feel comfortable shooting any type of small game with this. Not to mention it's about as loud as a .22 firearm. Gamo customer service is the worst I have ever dealt with… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/12/2008

I bought this rifle for hunting squirrel, but after about 100 shots trying to zero the scope, I finally had to accept that the rifle was just all over the place. I spoke with customer service and was quite offended by their rudeness and lack of professionalism. After sending it back along with some other accessories, I did not receive my $600+ refund for over 12 weeks. I would never deal with GAMO again… Read Full Review

I know it sounds odd but I still think the Gamo Hunter Extreme is a great gun, I just might have gotten a bad one. No matter how good something is there is always a lemon here and there. I still would recommend this gun to anyone who wants to spend the money even though I can just look at mine… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2008

I found this review unhelpful because...
<br/>Contradictory - "overall good" but rates a 1/10?
<br/>"Light" and "easy to cock" - at about 10lbs and 58lbs cocking effort that seems relatively odd
<br/>"Could do with a bit more power" - isn't this one of the more powerful guns around?

Written on: 13/01/2008 by evan nz (1 review written)

Hunter Extreme is truly a super powerful hunting air rifle compare with other spring rifles. I have taken quite a few larger size rabbits and some small pest with one shot (mostly head and around chest area). the power is amazing, more than enough for one shot clean kill. I am using Diabolo Barracuda extra heavy pellet with this rifle, and found quite accurate (apart from the bad trigger influence) This is a very heavy rifle and hard to cock without proper technique. Would be even better if… Read Full Review
