Hei there: In this rifle; its VERY important to use heavy pellets !. Remember, its a Magnum, have a long tube/sylinder, and the spring is almost 38 cm. long..! (about 15 inch). Shall it function wel, good and not destroy the spring; use in cal. .177 at least 10 to 16 grain pellet. In cal. .22: 21 to about 24 grain. If so, it whil be very accurate and hardstriking. Very welfit-powerfull, and exact to shoot whit. About the trigger: yes, this is heavy to pull, but change to Charlie da Tuna, GRT… Read Full Review

Bought my Gamo Hunter 1250 from Wholesale Sports 3 years ago. It was the most expensive air rifle they had, so I expected it to be fairly decent. I really hate the heavy trigger pull, and there is no reason it couldn't be about 1/3 of what it is. It is also not as accurate as expected. Having competed in several National air rifle competitions, I will fork the additional money over and purchase a Feinwerkbau 601 or high-end Anschutz competition air rifle. This rifle is also very loud when it… Read Full Review

Purchased a Gamo Hunter 1250 from Cabelas in May, 2 cans of ammo and two months later main spring broke, not covered by warranty $63 for postage and repair, the scope mount broke, replaced the BSA thing with a Williams 5D peep, it was lost during the repair and the scope rail has a large gouge installed by the repair center. Will not achieve claim accuracy or FPS. Don't make the mistake I did buy and RWS they are twice the rifle this thing is… Read Full Review

I have a 1250 I purchased from Cabelas, had it two months, shot two cans of pellets, the main spring broke, not covered under warranty. Cost 63.00 to mail back to gamo and pay to have fixed. When it was returned the Williams 5DAG peep sight I put on was missing, and the scope rail has a large gouge in it. It does not achieve accuracy or velocity claimed. As yet gamo has not responded to emails or phone calls, would not reccomend any gamo to a person I do like or for that matter do not like… Read Full Review

Gamo Hunter 1250 - generaly an extreme value for the $400 that it's worth, I swear it's strong enough to take small deer with head shots. It'll go straight through just about any animals skull. It could blow up birds with hollow points.hint: use .177 cal rws hypermax pellets, at 5.2 grains they can reach 1664 fps and 32 ft/lbs
absolutely kills my crosman multi-pump powermaster'' it's only rated for 690 fps and 7.9 ft/lbs''.also replace the stock trigger with a GTR-III aftermarket trigger wich… Read Full Review

Generally a good rifle, but it would be superb if the trigger was looked at by Gamo!!!!! Trigger is most annoying and way hard to pull off in order to get a good clear shot. The Gamo hunter 1250 has a nice Grain and Finish… Read Full Review

The Gamo Hunter 1250 is a riffle that is meant to last with a solid construction, and fine checkering on the grip, the stock is made out of hard walnut wood.
The .22 fires lead pellets at 910 fps
and .177 fires 1250 fps
it's a very powerful airgun for its class and takes 58 lbs of cocking effort.
great gun for plinking and serious small game hunting.
the riffle is quite expensive but the quality of the gun is awesome.it is a heavy gun to carry for long periods of time, the sights on this gun are… Read Full Review

Great gun unless you have to carry it very far. Best for back yard critters etc. Accurate below supersonic speeds, thats to be expected with any air rifle, Hard hitting with pellets weighing more than 10.5g and nice looking with my BSA scope. It is too heavy though… Read Full Review

great thing IF it works, i repeat, IF. would i by this gun again? probably not, with all the anger and waiting and money involved, i would probably go for an pre charged daystate or airarms. (almost) same power, stiff barrel .... better quality.
obviously kinda pissed… Read Full Review

This is a fantastic gun for hunting and good for backyard plinking also (unless you are built like a weed) you should have no problems at all with this gun.
I strongly recommend it to anyone wishing to hunt small game.
p.s buy it in .22 (helps keep velocity down, improves accuracy)
Happy hunting… Read Full Review

Without a doubt the 1250 is definitely one of the 4 or 5 break barrel springers on the market today that can put out over 20 ft/lbs. of energy. In pure size alone, it is the largest and heaviest springer that I have in my collection. With a scope it weighs in at a little over 10lbs. With 58lbs of cocking effort, I can only recommend the 1250 for those with the upper body strength to deal with it. I would say that the only other airgun that I have shot that compares in cocking effort is the… Read Full Review

With a 4-16 x 50 scope , a very lite grip and some Crosman premiers . This gun is a real performer.

It's a wonderful gun overall if you would be wanting to get rid of pests from doves to rabbits. I have yet to shoot a rabbit, because I would like to see the devastation a Prometheus .177 cal does at 480m/s. It would be good for bird pests, considering it would be a one-off kill. If you're looking for a long shot or hunting pellet gun. the Gamo Hunter 1250 is the way to go, but it's not for a first pellet gun, and it's not for the weak either… Read Full Review

The Gamo Hunter 1250 is not recommended as a first air rifle or for a woman or child. This gun is for those who have experience with shooting spring piston air rifles. I'm only 5' 8'' and 160 lbs. and this gun is a bit big for me, 49 inches long and 9 lbs. I have gotten used to cocking it though. The 58 lbs cocking effort takes some getting used to. Not much of a problem once I got a technique down, but for a person without good upper body strength this gun will be too much to handle.

Gamo Hunter 1250, well I brought one about 1 week ago in .177 cal. I shot about 2000 pelits after previously owning a Diana RWS mdl35. I guess I wanted something to shoot around my 1.2 acres of land I've got out the back of Seberbia here in Perth, West Australia. I went on this site and read the reviews and thought yep that's me, the V8 of air rifles! They said it was loud but I'm thinking to my self how loud can an air rifle be, so I brought one, well bugger me, the thing was louder than my… Read Full Review

Gamo Hunter 1250 - If you are looking for a true air rifle for hunting small game you are now looking in the right direction. I purchased this rifle a couple months ago and have bagged a 2 squirrels and a chipmunk so far. I have to mention I'm up to 83 red-squirrels, many taken with my bengemin silverstreak and previous shadow 1000. But this rifle is different in many ways and will help me enjoy many hunting adventures to come. Anyway, I use strictly gamo hunter pellets in my rifle, I… Read Full Review

I have had Gamo Hunter 1250 17 cal for 4 years, haven't had any problems, except I demolished a BSA scope, I did not have a good scope mount it shook loose and tore loose the cross hairs. So I sent off the scope and bsa replaced it, so I got me a 5040 mount, that took care of that problem. I hunt squirrels, I use crow mag hollow points they seem to work well, if I get a head shot then it's all over for the squirrel, I limit my range to 40 yards for a shot then it's a clean kill, any longer then… Read Full Review
