“Best air gun I have shot!!!”

Written on: 31/10/2013 by termingater (1 review written)

I love this gun for the reasons of its acurate. It shoots like a dream, and its a good break barrel air gun for the price i paid for it. I have droped 3 squirrles, 6 black birds, and 1 crow they all droped with 1 pellet.I dont really care for the 4x32 scope it comes with but it works untill I get more money to buy a little better one, but other than the scope issue its a really good gun. I would reconmend this for eny enthusiastic hunter who wants a cheap way to get rid of pests. I have found… Read Full Review

“sucks”

Written on: 20/06/2012 by ron58203 (1 review written)

Bolts tore through stock 2 weeks after purchase (less than 100 rounds). In other words the stock fell off. Sure, Gamo offered to POSSIBLY replace/repair the gun (after I paid to ship it back to them), but why would I want another poorly designed gun? I am to return this gun every month after the stock breaks? Not to mention the scope had a lot of spherical aberration and the gun was not any more accurate (25 yards) than my cheapo Crossman. I can't help but feel like I was leaned over the hood… Read Full Review

“awsome freaken gun”

Written on: 27/05/2012

After putting over 500 pellets through the Big Cat it started to shoot true. Through trial and error i found the the Cometa Exact Heavy is the best for my Big Cat. Getting the scope that came with it dialed in was a chore. However now it is very accurate. Lots of practice got me used to the trigger, which has lots of travel. Now i just pull it back to just the right amount. It now drops everything that i aim at, crows, gophers, starlings, pigeons. I usually shoot from 8 yards to 40 yards… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2011

Awesome gun. I got it off pyramid air for $135, and accuracy is great. The gun is fun to shoot. It doesn't take much to zero the scope in and it can kill a bobcat or a very small wolf. I would recommend it. There is nothing I don't like about it… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

This review is to answer all the questions your having if your reading this review. I bought this gun in 2011 and it took less than 12 rounds before it was shooting 1/2 in groups at 35 yards. I am shooting polymer tipped ammo. I also took the scope off it came with a replaced it with a 3x9x40 .22 cal rifle scope and it works great. The noise factor in this gun was not stated and trust me this bad boy is LOUD, almost like a .22 to be exact. It's easy to cock and I love shooting it, for the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2010

This gun is the best airgun i've owned yet, ive went through Remingtons, Crosmans and either a few other Gamos and this is the best of them all. The scope is very simple to adjust and the gun itself... WOW. it gets the job done. Any small gam animal isn't too much for the Big Cat. Make sure to get this one if youre considering getting airgun. look no further! Its also very easy to maintain. Although i wish Gamo would provide an attachable belt or strap to carry the gun around your chest… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2010

I bought my big cat about 2 years ago and im already impressed. it has surpassed my .22 air rifle. the scope that comes with it is whatever, but dies the trick for a few kills. the power is just phenomenal. i match my big cat with red fire pointed tip ammo and completely obliterate small birds and sever crows heads. this ammo is the absolute best i think for this gun not just because its lethal, but it also raises your velocity to about 1256 FPS, (going on the information on the ammo itself… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2010 by bushwacker (1 review written)

Whether you are an expert or amateur this gun will leave you in awe. I am out to kill all crows in the neighborhood due to the fact that they carry West Nile virus and absolutely destroy song bird babies. Over the past 5 years my score is 3000. I can generally score 6 or 7 a day in a radius of 5 miles. I am sighted at 75 feet and have killed at 47 yards. (measured by hand held Nikon range finder.) When scoped in at 75 feet, you will be pretty flat out to about 120 feet. When shooting at… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2010

had my big cat for 3 months now and very plesed with her. Im on my third tin of cphp pellets and she still shoots strong. Mine came with a 3x9x40 gamo scope that is not that great. The cross hairs started to shift befor i finished the first tin. Its been upgraded to a leepers 3x9x32AO along with a GRT III triger. She really is bad too the bone infact im buying aother one. Its very addictve. Very important to clean the barrle before you use it the first time they are dirty and it helps with… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/02/2010

I love the Gamo Big Cat 1200 ive had it for 2 years and ive killed over 100 squirrels easily. The Big Cat has enough power at 60 yards to punch threw a mellimeter thick steal plate and put a nice dent in a concreet block. I have killed coyotes, birds and rabbits.
With PBA ammunition it can go threw a piece of wood on a fence. But it does have a 2 inch pattern so its not the most accurate air rifle at that range. Foe the price of $135 this is a great gun and i would reccommend this to any of my… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2010

The Big Cat is 5 stars on everything except the scope. Before you start shooting. Invest in a good scope with a one piece mount and recoil pin. After that investment it shot 1/2 groups at 40+ yards everytime!!!! Mine shot best with Crosman premier hollow points. This is an excellent air rifle for the money even with the scope upgrade… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2010

An amazing toy, I bought one for myself this Christmas and could not be any happier. The only complaint is it is a bit on the loud side, however that is due to the extreme power of the air rifle. The pellet breaking the sound barrier is the crack that you hear, and short of using heavier, slower loads there is no way around this noise.
I give it 5 stars!!! And would recomend this air rifle to anyone looking for a solid, accurate, lightweight hunting rifle. This air rifle fits the bill nicely!… Read Full Review

Its a good gun for as precision comes in, the only reason i bought it was because of my neihbor complains when im killing stuff with my 22., and for that other kid its not that people wouldnt put a leupold scope on because of the price its the way airguns shoot, they shoot more different then a normal rifle so it wont work but trust me i would get a nikon buckmasters if ic ould and put it on mine like i have on my 270… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/12/2009

I have to say, out of the box this is THE best rifle for your money. Ive had this rifle for a good two years now (im 15).The scope with it is decent, but its no Leupold... but who would spend 200+ bucks on a scope for a 100 $ rifle? It was hell to sight in(like most scopes)but after a tin(500)of crossmans this rifle was both broken in and well sighted. you must watch as every 200 rounds of lower qual ammo the flier will go and knock out your cars tire.;) This rifle can (and has) taken out… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/10/2009 by Gokartninja (6 reviews written)

I bought the Big Cat for $130 (USD)from a dealer that isn't paying me to tell you their name ( so I won't ) It is undoubtedly the best air rifle I have ever used. It has enough power to take any small game I can think of, and the accuracy to put the pellet in said game. I am 15 and can kill a bluejay with it at 50+ yards offhand, so anyone who has been shooting for a while can really tap into the awesome accuracy of this gun. The scope and mounts are always being slammed by reviewers, but this… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/10/2009

I am very pleased with my new Big Cat 1200 by Gamo. The first thing I noticed is how light it is. It took no time to sight the low-end scope and put lead on target with roughly 2" grouping at 35-40 yards. Thats more than likely from my lack of shooting skills. The best pellet so far for me is Beemans Cro-Mag hollow point. I have been taking down crow sized birds at approx 30 yards without much drama. For the price, you can't go wrong. Since I'm no pro, I can say if you are not one either, you… Read Full Review

My Gamo Big cat has about 500 pellets through it, & is just an starter gun.

I got mine from a dealer who said it was strong & longlasting gun.
I've got an Quest 1000X and it is of the same Quailty, Just the scopes are both Bad, so just use the iron sites. at 30ft is the max for this gun, any more & your just wasting pellets. Cheep everything on the gun from Stock to the way is shoots. :(
