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

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

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

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 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 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

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

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

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

*Gamo 4-32 scope + mounts
*Bisley Silencer (NOT RECOMMENED, its £25 of metal scrap)
*Tin of pellets (go for Crosman Accupell - Super accurate)

I have the silenced version (which is very good) and it also has a REALTREE camo finish and the barrel has been shortened slightly to aid manouverability.

We now have several reviews of the Cometa 300 here on Review Centre, and I intend to add my own experiences and strip down report.
I purchased the Cometa 300 .22 nickel version, which is identical to the standard 300, but has a silver nickel coated action and black beech stock. Paid 130 pounds from Outdoors man.
This is a medium weight, full sized, full legal power spring airgun made by the Spanish company Cometa. It would be classed as a budget/ mid range hunting/ plinking rifle. Sitting… Read Full Review

As soon as I opened the box and held the rifle for the first time I was impressed, the quality and finish was excellent, and aside from a quick wipe over, it was ready to shoot. It certainly looks the part, with a well finished stock, partly covered trigger guard, and chunky silencer.

The Cometa 300 is a great rifle in all aspects however if you are used to a lighter rifle it may take you a while to adapt. But with a 4 by 32 scope this rifle can be deadly or even with the open sights. I picked mine up for £115 money well spent. It is quite silent so no real need for a silencer. I would recommend you to use Accupell as these fit perfectly. This rifle is capable of a humane kill on most birds and vermin at around 30 meters. All in all I could honestly say that this is a superb… Read Full Review

I bought my Cometa 300 2nd hand via eBay for £125 which included a Hawke 4x32 Scope as well as a bag and a selection of ammo. The previous owner had removed the back sight and sawn down the front sight to allow fitting the scope on low mounts. I later removed the front sight remains and fitted a Webley Silencer which finishes the appearance off nicely but doesn't actually do much to silence it as the mechanical noise on this gun is high. Fitting the silencer required re-zeroing the sight as it… Read Full Review

The Cometa 300 is a very good air rifle for the price! The open sights offerd reasonable amount of accuracy but once scoped and zeroed, can shoot golfballs at 35yrds. The build quality is very good but the wood is a little done in by the action bolts. I had my first kill on this rifle and recomend the gun for the plinker/hunter.
