I live in Egypt I bought p800 pistol first i found that there is no accuracy at all since the bullet always fill over target by 10 cm at least i tried it from different distances but no use , then the disaster came when it broken into pieces while firing and i dont know why unless the bullet had fallen from the barrel , and all i have got is a wrecked gun, so i dont recomended to buy it at all .

Great gun little noisy, but accurate within 10 metres with right ammo.
I only use gamo pellets as they are the best for accuracy.
For the price its great if you want more accuracy buy a more expensive weapon
Would not recomend it for pest control best buy a .22 rifle for that like a BSA Comet much more humane (read more)

Great gun for beginner,especially if you use gamo pellets. Have not scored less than 42 out of 50 at 10 metres.When used with gamo match or magnum pellets it is extremely accurate.Shot straight through a full can of beer at 10 metres using gamo magnum pellets. (read more)

The Gamo P-800 gun is legend. I can shoot nextdoors pigeons from my mansions top room, and it will own a robin at 50 m- belive me- i tried.
Best gun I've ever had. Great power, okay accuracy and good for hunting. Only bad points are the sight moves sometimes and way too loud (read more)

With the Gamo P-800 you can kill things with it up to a certain distance. I think this looks really good and is really accurate and powerful. The only bad point is that its far too loud. (read more)

I've had it for a week now and shot a lot with it, sadly it's as precise as throwing a stone with a shovel. Also inconsistent in accuracy. Even shot from a rest it is impossible to hit anything less than the broadside of a barn at over 3 meters. Not the gun to buy if you want to do anything other than throw pellets all over the place (read more)

Cheap plinker, should have fully adjustable sights though, feels light in the hand, ok as a fun gun, would not recommend it for a general target/plinker, suggest potential buyers to pay the difference and get the Beeman 2004, I'm getting one soon (read more)

This is a marvelous gun, whether you are a novice or a more experienced shooter. It is excellent on the range. However i wouldn't recommend it for children, as the box also does not and also it is highly dangerous-in adult supervision, this could be the perfect way into target shooting as a sport. (read more)

The Gamo P-800 is my second air pistol I have bought. It is good value for money, being an entry level sort of gun. Its a lot higher power than other air pistols that are only a little cheaper in price. It is a break barrel spring powered pistol so there isn't the ongoing cost of buying Co2 cartridges for it. It fires all shapes of pellets and is a single shot per break/cock. From 5 to 10 meters I find that this pistol will break thin walled V bottles, but will not break jars or thicker... (read more)

I had been thinking about getting myself an air pistol for a few months when I got my Gamo P-800. I'm not well off money wise but have always purchased a quality product for any hobby I have tried. I really was not sure if this would be a five minute fad but I had done some reading and decided to purchase the Weihrauch HW 45. By chance I found this review page and whilst reading some of the comments, I was surprised to read that the inexpensive Gamo P-800 had received some excellent... (read more)

Despite the gun being made of plastic it still seems pretty robust. Not very accurate but for 40 quid it's a great gun for a bit of backyard target shooting. At a short range I quite often get rebounds. (read more)

I bought this Gamo P-800 air pistol in a pack with pellet trap and pellets for €65. I was pleased since the first shot. For shooting at 6 meters this gun is well fitted and the pastic? It feels so massive, that I think if you throw this gun as far as you can, after it it will work without no problems.(nt) the power was low at all. i tried different pellets but i can't reach the velocity of 100m/s. I measured with my self made chrono with RWS Hobby 4.5g: 94m/s. this is about 2 Joule. I... (read more)

Here in Germany you can buy the
Gamo P-800 as new for 40Eu. For the price the gun is really ok.
It is well built, I could use it as a hammer :)
One can shoot everything that fits the barrel, put a bit of cooking oil behind the pellet and have dieseling experiments. The accuracy is surprisingly good for this price range but at times the sight needs readjusting. I think is the barrel changing position during reloads; it might be possible to tune it a bit, but I never tried. The power is not... (read more)

Surprisingly the Gamo P-800 was nicely finished for a "plastic" pistol. Its got good balance and is a doddle to load and shoot. Its not as powerful as I initially thought but certainly not under-powered. Target accuracy was good, due I think to its combination of light weight and balance. Great little gun, I totally recommend it. (read more)

Bought my Gamo P-800 as a try-out gun to see if I'd enjoy air gunning as much as I did when I was in my teens. It has certainly re-kindled my interest. It's very well built but the barrel seems to be off centre so the rear sight is turned quite far to the right to compensate. Also rear sight not adjustable for elevation, ok at 10 meters but start having to guess a bit for longer ranges. Another problem is the sight moves by it's self due to recoil so after 20 -30 rounds you have to... (read more)

Nice little pistol for the price £40, I find this pistol nice to hold and light,it shoots a fair distance about 3 to 400 yards but it dosen't seem to be very accurate. I find it difficult to use the sights to improve my shooting its like they move, yes it could be me but I also use a crosman 338 and with this I can shoot a baked bean off the top of a pencil at about 15 feet without hitting the pencil. OK that might not be impressive but I'm 43 and my sight isn't as good as it used to be, I... (read more)

Having my .22 Webley Premiere stolen from my garden shed the P800 had a lot to live upto, but to it's credit the gun feels nice, looks nice and shoots very well with a lot of power, and for the £40 it's a bargain. I would recomend this gun to anyone who wants value for money. It's robust and the power is still there even though it's been fired at least a thousand times. (read more)

I'm not a air pistol or gun lover, but need the gun to protect my property. I use the GAMO P-800 to intimidate any bandits (if the p-800 don't intimidate, my bennelli m1 will take care of it) I have already two pistols a DIANA sp50 that was very inprecise and a bruni leslie, but they have broken due to the use that I give to them. I've had the p-800 almost a year now and she don't give me any problems. So if you want a "pest control" gun very reliable the p-800 is waiting for you. (read more)

In the begining we couldn't hit a can at 12 yards but with many hours of training, our hiting percentage was becoming better, one day my brother kill one small bird at 16 yard with a clean shoot in the head. That day is a mark in our lives we love to hunt and we... (read more)
