“OLD FAITHFUL...”

Written on: 08/06/2012

I purchased my GAMO 200 HUNTER over 12 years ago and it has been in my air-gun collection since. I had bought other air rifles in the past and also have gotten rid of a few of them, but this GAMO 220 HUNTER is still in my collection. Yeah, it has a few scars, dings, and cosmetic issues, but for the most part, this air rifle has delivered reliabilty, accuracy, and fun over the many years that I have owned it. Great rifle all in all. SIGHTS The PROS to this air rifle are that it has a… Read Full Review

Great Rifle! This has been the best rifle I have owned. Doves are very easy to kill with the Gamo Hunter 220. The rifle works best with Gamo palets I have shot quarters at over 30yds time after time. The scope is very simple to adjust. So Far so good.

The Gamo 220 Hunter Combo .177 is an awesome gun. I have shot through almost everything I have shot at. Nothing to can stop this gun except 2/8 inch of steel. Great accuracy without scope. Great penetration power. My sights broke off within a week. Poor handling most likely, but also poor quality in the sights… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2008

I got my Gamo Hunter 220 used, with no scope. Open sight accuracy is respectable, nice tight groupings.
I was disappointed with the Raptor PBA ammo, although velocity jumps to 1200 fps, I find that it lacks overall impact. Very surprised to see this gun puncture a fire extinguisher with pointed lead hunting pellets from Crossman @ 20 yrd.
For accuracy, velocity, and overall stopping power, I recommend Gamo Rocket pellets.
Overall, I am very pleased with my Gamo Hunter 220… Read Full Review

This was a gift from my in-laws. It has been a very consistent riffle. The Gamo Hunter 220 combo shoots the same as it did many years ago. No problems with the BSA scope. Never had it slip or nor was it blurry. The cross hairs are as they should be. Very little adjustments to the scope after all these years. I can not compare it to another air riffle since this is my first. I just purchased last week the Gamo Hunter Extreme and will be using that riffle once by birthday arrives in 9 days.

Written on: 13/05/2007 by logan9967 (1 review written)

6 to 8 years ago I purchased two of these, since then they have been invaluable. Excellent for "quick pop the barrel out of the window and kill that rabbit in your garden before the neighbor sees" scenarios. Very quiet compared to other 1000fps airguns I have used, unless you dry fire it. And after years it just needs the occasional sighting in which is easy to do and understand with the open sights and it only takes a steady hand and a cardboard box with a dot on it. With this I have killed… Read Full Review

I bought this gun maybe four years ago. It was a good shooter out of the box after I learned to shoot springers. It t has a nice simple design.

I eventually sent the gun to Charlie Tuna for a Super Tune and GTX trigger and now it's really steller. http://charliedatuna.com/index.html This made the gun great. Get it and shoot if for a year and then send it off. It's good either way but great after a tune. Gamo's are diamonds in the rough and capable of a lot with a little work… Read Full Review

Having owned the rifle for over 6 years and have tried numerous other springers and PCPs, so I thought it is time I make some contribution to others considering purchasing the rifle.

Firstly, I want to make a strong remark to those that have considered this rifle inaccurate.
Having won many smallbore rifle shooting competitions I know that many shooter converting to airgunners often neglect the fact that the projectile in a air rifle is not fired from a sealed casing as bullets are, but are… Read Full Review

I bought it in Sports Authority even thinking that it is most likely lower class of air rifles.

Written on: 22/11/2006 by Ovejero (1 review written)

I have been collecting air rifles for a while. I have some of the classics: RWS 54 .22, 52 .22, 48 .177, IZH 61, Benjamin Sheridans .20 and .22, Crossman 1000X. They are all great shooters with lots of power and great accuracy. Even the $94 Crossman was a great and pleasent find! and one of my favorites to shoot.

I have been looking at the 220 for a while, attracted by the extraordinary good looks and feel of the gun. I would go time and time again to the isle at Cabelas and handle the gun… Read Full Review

OK, forget the scopes and bench rests. We took the Gamo 220 Hunter Combo .177 out to a field and set up tin cans at 70 yards. While my son was blasting away with a .22 rifle, I was calmly knocking over the cans before he could even chamber another round. It may not put a five shot group into 1/4", but the fun we had in the field saved this gun from being sold. Go out and plink around - it may leave you with good memories (I can still see the aggravated look on his face when he had to walk… Read Full Review

I have an old pump pellet gun that I have been using for the distinguished job of rodent eradication. It gives decent power, but I got sick of having to give it ten hard pumps to get the job done. This caused me to head out into the scary world of spring loaded air guns. I settled on the Gamo Hunter 220 Combo because I didn't want something Chinese, and I was reasonably happy with the reviews that I had read.

I bought the gun 2 weeks ago and for the first 4 days was extremely disappointed… Read Full Review

Jason.........you can have one of my surplus apostrophes if you want...it will surely clear up any misunderstanding of that sentence!
I may be a little over-cautious here, but I would think your '220 -- unless well into UK FAC territory -- is somewhat short of the ME necessary to humanely kill a raccoon unless you get very close to it and hit it in the eye.

Brucemg51's Response to JasonPatrick's Review

Written on: 29/06/2006

I had the same gripes with mine at first. The unique recoil of a magnum springer does take some getting used to, but now I am consistently shooting one hole groupings at 30 yards. Just for kicks, I put an official NRA target, with a bullseye about the size of a dime, at 65 yards out. To my amazement, I was able to hit it. If you are used to pump-up rifles, shooting a springer is totally different, but if you're willing to work with it, it will be worth your time and effort. Also, I have put down a raccoon with my 220, but as with any type of shooting, shot placement is everything. Aim for the base of the skull, and that raccoon will be on his way to the rodent afterlife.

My dad bought the Gamo 220 Hunter Combo .177 e for me this past Christmas for $125 and was fairly satisfied with it until "the problems occurred". First when I opened it the stock was extremely loose and part of the barrel seal was damaged. After a month the front fiber optic just fell out as I was walking out into my yard but they gave me a new one for free without hesitation. Then it stopped accepting flathead pellets by falling straight through the barrel. One day I walked out to shoot and… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2006

Gamo shadow is the same as gamo hunter 220, except for it has a synthetic stock (all internal parts are the same). All gamo springs wear out or break after 2000-3000 shots, so gamo shadow won't be any different. It's a serviceable part and has to be replaced once in a while, nothing surprising about it. As for their power, they should usually show 850-900 fps with 7.5-8 grain pellets, after the break-in period.

Leonidus's Response to shadow177hunter's Review

Written on: 22/05/2006

What I meant is the spring does get weaker after 3000 rounds, it may still go to 4-5k, but already 'stressed out'. This is from personal experience (I went through a few springs already), has nothing to do with the rifle itself, it's totally spring characteristic. Best are german springs, they last longer, up to 10k rounds, look around for reviews from weihrauch owners. I am not bashing gamo in any way, sorry if I sounded like I did, just stating the facts. It's still one of the best value for money products on the market today.

"All gamo springs wear out or break after 2000-3000 shots"
Again with the Gamo bashing. That's utter nonsense and unfounded on anything other than personal bias. Gamo springs aren't going to break any sooner than anyone else's and in fact, are of higher quality than many. And, if you do have a problem with your Gamo, it costs you nothing. Send it back to Gamo and they will fix it or replace it free, no questions asked, not even a receipt. How many other airgun manufacturers are going to do that for you? My Gamo Hunter 220 will shoot one hole groups at 30 yards, and easily kills at 50-60 yards. Oh, and it's got 4500 rounds through it with the original spring. Anyone can make a lemon. Sorry you got a bad one.

This review is based on ten months of ownership of the Gamo 220 Hunter Combo .177. No matter what pellets I used, I could not make a grouping smaller than 3" from ten meters using a bench rest. My Crosman 760 which is 24 years old, groups better than the Gamo. Out in the field, this airgun is not too hard to carry while hunting. If only it can consistently hit the target, I would be very happy with this airgun. Once it does hit it's mark, squirrels don't have a chance. One shot is all it takes… Read Full Review

I had a similar problem with my 220. After owning it for almost a year, I called Gamo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and explained the problem. They told me to send it to them and they would either fix or replace it. Two weeks later I had a brand new 220 delivered to my door and this second one has been a lot better. Send yours back. Gamo really stands behind their products.

Brucemg51,

<br>Thanks for the tip. The Gamo is in the mail. No matter what I tried, different hold, bench rest, cleaning, etc., the Gamo couldn't group very well at ten meters. I started questioning my skill until I used the Crosman which grouped extremely well from the same distance. Hopefully, the replacement Gamo will be much better as you say.
