“Well worth the money.....”

Written on: 19/04/2013

This 300N was bought from Pellpax.When I recieved it I was dissapointed that the gun was not in its own box,but in the gun bag purchased with it.I was expecting a silvery nickel look but the gun had a rather mucky nickel grey.Still, the gun has a very pleasing look-its unfortunate that this N version is not available in 177. My other gun (rifle)is a Magnum 850 so thats what I have to compare it with (the 850 can shoot better than either me or the wife).The 300N has real recoil,giving a pleasing… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2009 by bren14 (1 review written)

The Cometa 300N is an acccurate , well presented air rifle. Nicely finished. Nothing swish or fancy about it - but very acurate, solidly made, not too heavy . One of the best £130 (S/H) 300s guns available . I have PCP's but love the ORIGINAL air gun action of this excellent break barrel . Puts pellet on pellet, with full power. You can't lose at this price. Not a target gun , but not a target gun price ! !Will buy another.Well done Cometa. I've been around air guns for 40 + yrs. Its great… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2008 by robertc (2 reviews written)

I bought my cometa 300 nickel yesterday for 185 pounds a lot you might think but not when the gunsmith gave me more than i payed for my other gun!!

So far with most pellet types it has been very accurate however i would not recomend bulldogs (too small) or david nickerson magnum domed (too big). i put a 4 by 40 scope on it as soon as purchased it and can hit a green giant sweetcorn tin dead on every shot at 35 yards.
so far i have found the most consistant pellet to be the napier power… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2008

The gun is cheap to buy so I suppose you can't expect too much . The gun is solidly built the woodwork is excellent. There is no trigger adjustment and it appears to be a bit too heavy on the trigger. I have tried a variety of different pellets in this gun And no two pellets come out to the end of the barrel the same this gun is not very accurate All the right up I have seen Have said that this gun is very accurate but I would not agree with them… Read Full Review

I can only think that you must have a bad one... or you're using it wrong. Perhaps .177 pellets in a .22 rifle? Fairly simple mistake, and I've seen it done before...

Written on: 23/11/2007 by krp90 (1 review written)

i bought a cometa 300 about a year ago, first thing i noticed was its amazing power and accuracy,
from about 20 meters this rifle was blasting holes in my shed door which is about 2 inches think, and the pellet still keeps going and sticks into the other side of it.
the accuracy is great, i can hit pennys from one side of my garden to the other,
i have had this rifle for a year now and its still as good as it was when i first bought it, its power hasen't dropped and its still accurate,

i would… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2007 by Paddy1345 (1 review written)

I bought a Cometa 300 around seven months ago. I was looking for a gun that was suitable for all round target and hunting. The power delivered was excellent for around the first 1000 pellets, i could hit tins at 35yards with ease, and my kills on squirrels and rabbits where frequent and clean. After around 3000 pellets i started to notice a decrease in power and as i use it frequently and expected this gun to be solid and long lasting this was strange. I continued firing and after around… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2007 by fatheroblivion (1 review written)

This was my first air rifle, and I was very pleased with it. If you look after it properly it will last, and give consistent power and accuracy. The outside of the barrel needs cleaning with wire wool quite often, as rust builds up on it very quickly, and the stock has a varnish which is damaged easily- it goes a horrible white colour if something hits it.

The thing about this rifle is to keep checking the screws holding the receiver and barrel to the stock, mine fell off, I didn't notice, I… Read Full Review

Sniper711's Response to 283936_fatheroblivion's Review

Written on: 16/05/2007

hi fatheroblivion i thought your review was very good. I also have a Cometa but its the 300-s but mine is in .22 cal. I read your review and you are spot on. This is a great gun and really good value for money it has a great weight to it and it come with a silencer as standard witch was great. I haven't shot at anything live with it yet but I'm sure i wont be disappointed as it performs great at 30-35 yards. I have a quick question for you - which is the best pellet to use with this gun in your opinion? i have been using supper dome but I'm not overly impressed with them. and as you have had a lot of experience shooting chipmunks with it what would be your recommendation for great all round perfomance.?
<br/>
<br/>thanx for your time.

Written on: 01/03/2007 by sphinxx (2 reviews written)

Well i was looking for a well known, accurate and powerful rifle suitable for hunting. I had a rifle that I would say the least is not capable of penetrating any quarry at point blank let alone 25 yards, which put me on the lookout. So after much research i decided to go for the Cometa 300-S, with much delight of only £140! I got the rifle home and straight away i noticed the power and accuracy of this weapon. I was shooting tins at 25 yards without a scope and there are no open sight on the… Read Full Review

“Thanks Bertie. ”

Written on: 30/10/2006 by thecommissaruk (4 reviews written)

Thanks Bertie.
I just got back from a trip to a friends farm with my Cometa 300N. I expect he's busy just now skinning the rabbits we got today. He uses a Brocock Hunter PCP, and the only difference we can see between the shooting of the two rifles is that his Brocock is lighter and therefore slightly easier to aim than the 300 (and obviously there's a difference in loading the two rifles). The spring noise of the moderated 300N about equals the barrel noise from the unsilenced Brocock, so… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/10/2006 by thecommissaruk (4 reviews written)

This Cometa 300 is a very good air rifle and I'm very happy with its quality, espacially when I bought it for £120 including a telescopic sight.
This review is for a .22 Cometa 300N (Nickel). I have owned this rifle for six months, and bought it in a closing down sale at a local sporting shop.

The iron sights:
This particular model of the 300N is fitted with fibre-optic style iron (well... plastic) sights: In reasonable light conditions two glowing green dots shine either side of the… Read Full Review

Bertie's Response to thecommissaruk's Review

Written on: 27/10/2006

Great review there commissar.
<br/>
<br/>I think the Cometa 300/N air rifle is to break-barrels what the Air Arms S200 is to PCPs -- i.e. as accurate and powerful as their more (often much) expensive brethren. And I do own both!
<br/>
<br/>My 300 has now fired more than 10,000 rounds, and only now is the barrel, when released from its indent, dropping under its own weigh, but still no perceivable play at the pivot.
<br/>
<br/>ME is now 10.8 ft.lbs. (still enough to demise a bunny at my range of no more than 30 yards) and was 11.7ish after about a 1,000 rounds. When, if ever, it drops to 10.0, I'll put a new spring in.
<br/>
<br/>My trigger has about the same play as yours, and OK, it's not the Weirauch Rekkord, but does the job...and that's what counts with me. For quite some time now the ammo has been Air Arms Diabolo Field, which go best, as they do in the S200.
<br/>
<br/>Safe and productive shooting, commissar.

Written on: 30/08/2006 by MeganoOdles (2 reviews written)

This is the first air rifle I ever air rifle owned, and what superb rifle it is, the rifle cost me £200 which include:
*Cometa 300 - nickel
*Gamo 4-32 scope + mounts
*Gun slip
*Bisley Silencer (NOT RECOMMENED, its £25 of metal scrap)
*Tin of pellets (go for Crosman Accupell - Super accurate)
Only down side to this excellent rifle is it weight, its HEAVY, my arms really ache after hold it for a long period of time, but I suppose its to helps it not recoil that much.

Nevertheless this rifle… Read Full Review
