I recently set up a portion of my backyard for target shooting with pellet guns. The Gamo Cadet Delta Is perfect for this. I like the sites, accuracy, and it has descent enough power. It's light and dependable. I have another pellet gun that shoots 1000fps. It am concerned about the neighbors becoming concerned about this, and the possibility that a pellet might go into their property and damage something. The gamo cadet is a little under 600fps and is relatively quiet yet has enough... (read more)

This is a great starter for a new shooter in the back yard between the ages of 6years to 8 or 9 years. My son 8 can load it himself and shoot very accurate in our small back yard. He shoots hi .22 long rifle any time we are in the woods. We are having fun plinking with his friends. I think older children will grow tired of the 525 fps. The rating given is for the younger age group would have scored it much lower for older shooters. If you are an adult get a real gun and for the sake of... (read more)

I have a Gamo 22 Delta Air rifle and used it several times. It was very accurate and did do some damage to the targets. It is the best first gun for one to start with target practice and then go for higher versions. I would recomend this to young teensto as it will not do much harm to others.

The Gamo Delta Cadet was my second air rifle, but I treat it like my first since the real first rifle was a Chinese army model that only gave me a taste for something more serious.
I truly enjoyed the light weight, easy handling and excellent accuracy, even at medium ranges, but the reason I cannot, whole heartedly, give this otherwise wonderful rifle a perfect overall score is it's very poor performance at long range target practicing. This rifle is simply too weak for targets over 30... (read more)

Handles like a toy but i can hit anything that i aim at.
needs more power but that would compromise the "toy" handling, cocking etc...
great first airgun shoots all regular gamo lead with ease.
shoots pba and heavy rounds lie doo doo though
easy one shot kills with doves and sparrows but pigeons, well this thing needs more balls
overall great plinker, ok for bird blasting (read more)

Bought a Cadet Delta in a secondhandshop. $ 10,-. I Think it's an old one; Methal and wood. Serialnumber: 2029331. Has some users "left over in the wood" But it shoots fine.... i guest, that the norm is set with what you already shoot. Uzi, Fall, Browning and .50 Mag! Overall, its just'fun! (read more)

This gun is a great first gun for garden target shooting.
Its lightweight and has a very comfortable rubber stock plate.
No recoil and a lot of rails and mounts for bi-pods and scopes.
Over all good first gun.
BUT don't attempt to hunt with this gun it wont kill it will injure it and lead to slow and painfull death accept for rats.

I've had this rifle for a while now and overall, it is an excellent first gun. As for accuracy, I'm not really sure because in all fairness I've only used awful scopes on it that always move around, but it is great for plinking. I also own a RWS model 34 which weights over nine pounds with all my equipment on it and that is a great gun, but it is just fun to see the difference between the handling of these two because the Gamo is so light. After some use the cocking effort also gets very... (read more)

I just got the Gamo Cadet Delta gun at the Italian Sporting goods here in Vancouver,it's a nice gun to shoot , smooth trigger and light weight .The only thing I am not sure about is the plastic parts , on the barrel locking mechanism and the hindges ( I hope it holds )

The short stock really fits the young kid that I bought it for but why does it have to be so wide around the grip area? Come on guys it's suppose to be for a youngster and I have trouble getting my full size hand around it. This rifle is surprisingly accurate out to 15 yards. Groups of .75" are regular occurrence but what I found really annoying was the rear sight can be inadvertently pushed from side to side without much effort and I believe this will get worse with time.

I bought this with my son in mind. His first gun, and what a choice I made. He's 6 and new to the sport and I didn't want to ruin his excitement by buying a cheap crosman or daisy product and have him hit the neighbor instead of the target. It took only 5 shots to zero it in. And at 30 feet, this thing puts 9 of 10 shots in a 2 inch circle, without a scope! The trigger pull is great and the strength required to cock it is so minimal, that my son does it easily. (read more)

For those of you who dont think it will take down small game you are wrong. Here in California squirrel season is open and this gun has already taken down at least 10 on my 3 acres. the scope it came with broke after about a month but then I put on a small daisy scope and sighted it in at about 8 yards. man everything I shoot at it hits. Granted it starts to drop at about 35-40 yards. I compared it to my Crosman 760 (since the velocity is close) and it is way quieter. One of the squirrels I... (read more)

This was my first air rifle. I've long since sold it, but it was a fun, cheap way to enter the sport to test the waters. Mine came with a cheap 2x BSA scope that wasn't worth the box it was packed in. At a rated 525 FPS, the rifle does have the power to take very small game. I've taken squirrels and chipmunks with it at 15 yards (using Gamo match pellets, I believe).
The cocking effort was so light, my wife could do it, and even she enjoyed it as a backyard plinker for popping balloons.

The reason I purchased this rifle was to improve my 10 meter air rifle shooting skills and as an introductory rifle for my oldest son.

I also own a Baikal IZH-46M air pistol and it's more than twice as accurate as the Gamo Delta.

I have had the Gamo 177.cal gun now for roughly 6 months and it has been one of the best gun's I've owned so far due to its lightweight body and it's easy cocking barrel which i find to be an advantage when shooting live targets.
The gun has never broke or malfunctioned and has ran smoothly since i purchased it in February 2006.

I had picked one of the Gamo Cadet Deltas up about 6 years ago and I am still amazed with how accurate the thing is. In my point of view it is good but not the best in every single way I have owned it this long and it just keeps getting more and more accurate! But lately it has lost it all it seems at the 4-5 year mark it seems to break down and it seems much weaker the it was. But I would recommend it!

I have had the Gamo Cadet Delta air rifle for about 2 years, and have found it to be very accurate, very easy to cock, has low recoil, and it's good for back-packing because of its light weight. I have used it to kill a lot of rodents and some birds, which it does OK on, but when you get to something a little bigger like a rabbit, your going to have to take more than one shot. I have enjoyed it when having to carry it on my pack, and I don't even notice it's there. Its major draw back is its... (read more)

I have three different guns: A Remington 77, Benjamin 397, and the Gamo Delta. The delta is my first pick of the three. This .117 cal rifle is accurate and powerful at the same time. It shoots pellets only and with out needing multiple pumps it uses up your pellets pretty fast. My Benjamin shoots 800fps and the delta shoots 525. The benjamin can shoot through a soup can and out the other side. The delta can shoot through the can also. For 525 it has a very hard impact.

Gamo Cadet Delta - I'm new to Air Rifles, but I'm not new to the shooting scene. When I opened the box, this gun was TOTALLY unsighted, but that didn't take long to fix with the easy-to-use sighting mechs. It has a great build, and it's really sturdy. Easy to cock the gun, but not very powerful. I've taken out a squirrel from about 13 yards. I say, for a begginner, it's a great little gun. Very accurate for it's price. (read more)
