Written on: 07/07/2010

I have owned my Gamo for a number of weeks now, I am certainly no more than a begginer at rifle sports and have alot to learn. When serching for a suitable gun to meet my needs, I came across this very traditonal looking rifle. After consulting an educated gent (my Dad) in the field of shot guns and armoury, he completely agreed that this purchase would be a good one...
I took it home, Made a target in my garden, it was a good 60 yrds away... I had a complete cluster of shots all within a… Read Full Review

The Gamo CF-30 is a very good air rifle for average shooter, good value to money. Fun, easy and decently accurate rifle for someone, who shoots for fun. Not for beginner nor pro, good for average guy. I found mine easy to shoot after tuning the trigger. Size and weight are within my needs. Accurate enough to average shooting. Quality is good and the stock is well finished… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2009

this is my 3rd gamo cf-30 rifle but not my favourite it is not a bad rifle, probably excellent for a first-timer but i have a modified (+-800fps) qb 79 with a tuned trigger. it feels lighter, trigger releases when expected, 9oz cylinder is very cheap to refill and (after a lot of cleaning the barrel) is very accurate. maybe some mods to the gamo will surface on the net soon and turn this into my favourite, we will see. Good velocity for standard co2 rifle and 10 shot magazine. Bad points are… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/08/2008 by Whittaker420 (6 reviews written)

A powerful and affordable rifle, with extreme accuracy. As a pheasant and rabbit hunter a rifle with power and accuracy out to 40 metres is essential. I previously used a BSA lightening, and my CF-30 .22 is much better. Yes, it is larger and louder than the BSA, but I find it has a much better kill ratio.

If your considering buying a sub-£350 spring rifle buy this, trust me!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2006 by nolimits (2 reviews written)

Fasten your seat belts!!!!! I have a .22 and it was noisy with a lot of recoil. As D.I.Y is in my blood I opened the Gamo CF-30 gun and made some adjustments. Don't laugh it really work out fine. I used heavy outdoor tape. Yes read it again.
This is what I did;
First I cleaned the gun inside. Then I put the heavy tape around the rear and front spring guide and turned / screwed into the spring. The heavy front spring guide moves around in the piston very easy so I taped this to get a tight… Read Full Review

“When I started looking for an air rifle, I had the...”

Written on: 15/12/2005 by HJ De Villiers (3 reviews written)

When I started looking for an air rifle, I had the following criteria for selecting an air rifle:
1. Accuracy
2. +- 1000 Ft/sec
3. Economical

Living in South Africa makes it expensive for the average citizen to buy a precharge rifle. The Gamo CF-30 got my attention, as it is well finished and fitted into my budget. The fixed barrel and under-lever cocking system adds to consistent performance. As can be expected, the harsh negative recoil results in a noisy vibration, that in my opinion is… Read Full Review

HI HJ De Villers.
I also stay in South Africa and I also just recently purchased a gamo, I bought the CFX though, it too has a pretty stiff trigger..... where can I find a longer screw to modify my trigger?

Take out the existing screw and take it to your local nut and bolt shop or gunsmith. I live in Centurion and got mine from "Acorn fasteners", it cost me about 50c for a stainless steel one.

Written on: 05/08/2005 by mariuscheek (1 review written)

I recently purchased a second-hand Gamo CF-30 in .177 which had had only a couple of tins of pellets fired through it. The stock was badly scratched in a few places, so I painted it black and gave it a coat of satin varnish. Lovely. I also bought a Gamo red dot sight because the iron sights were not up to much. I was pretty happy with the performance overall. The CF-30 is a full power rifle, and mine loves Bisley Magnums (for some reason they are a lot tighter than Bisley Pest Control or… Read Full Review

After reciveing the Gamo CF-30 and zeroing the scope, I took it for a few shots down a mates farm. Did I know what I was in for? The power is spot on and the recoil nice to have. Very good budget gun for the beginner and a nice little toy to have for the more experienced marks man alike… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2004 by davenport field security (2 reviews written)

I very much like using my Gamo CF-30 as it has the feel of a cold killer. Although some may argue that it lacks character I personally enjoy the look and feel of a real gun and find much to recommend its use on small to medium quarry say up to a hare at 30-35 metres (around 100ft). Although it can be a little heavy, that of course can be a benefit and not just a hindrance. When judging a spring gun, just remind yourself of the years of perfectly good shooting you and maybe your grandfather… Read Full Review
