Overall this is a great training gun.
Does not shoot to accurate when taking shots to fast, shots loose power.
Well balanced, perfect weight. Shoots very accurately when shots are taken slowly and powerful shot. (read more)

Gamo V3. Cheap Rubbish.
The first one arrived, I couldn,t pull the trigger to fire it, other reviews have mentioned how hard the trigger is, this one wouldn,t move, so much for quality control. The rear site was jammed solid it was impossible to move it. I sent it back and got a replacement.
The rear site was jammed and the pull action on the trigger was extremely hard, it appeared as if it was catching on something, the gun did however fire and with reasonable accuracy.
This did not last... (read more)

I see that many people have been complaining about the trigger pull being hard to fire. I don't know if you tried, but its very easy to adjust, just pull the top and lift it, then take out the barrel. Unscrew the little screw and adjust it forward and vise versa. you will notice when you move it one way "i forgot which" it will fire when you just pressed it a little. be careful with it tho.
I've used the gun or a couple of months and it doesn't give me much problem. For the... (read more)

Good points - grip, safety location, magazine design and release
Bad points - trigger pull, fake blowback
The Gamo V3 is a gun that many seem to hate. That made me have to purchase one, to see if I could make it better or prove people wrong. After inspecting the pistol and figuring out that the slide is actually part of the linkage between the trigger and hammer, I decided to leave the Gamo V3 alone and just shoot it. (Okay, I did lube it since many moving parts were dry.)
The V3 sure... (read more)

I have read the reviews here, and everyone is complaining about the hard trigger pull. I have this Gamo V3 gun for a month now and I can easily pull the trigger! You can shoot all 16 BB's in about 5-7 seconds, at least I can, so I don't know if the others are so weak and can't pull the trigger or what. Everywhere it is written that it has a 15 shot magazine! That is also not true. You can put 16 BBs in there and the gun is very powerful, it shoots thru a 100 page magazine from 5 meters! It's... (read more)

Don't be lured in by the neat magazine, the Gamo V-3 is junk and isn't typical of Gamo which usually makes some fine products. The "fake" blow-back is gimmicky and child like. The slide is not blown back at all by CO2 but rather it moves a half inch every time you pull the trigger. This probably contributes to the absurdly impossible trigger. Also, you can see through the gun where the slide meets the frame, it's light as a feather making it feel like a toy, and the power and accuracy... (read more)

My Gamo V3 is about a year old now, still in excellent condition. It's a good gun and powerful enough for birds, awesome for rats, but it's hard to get a co2 without it leaking a little.
It's a blow back but not a true blow back. There's no open chamber, the trigger makes it a blow back. I get about a 2 inch group at 5-10 yards.
Overall it's a decent gun and I would suggest it over any Crossman or Daisy. (read more)

I have brought a Gamo v-3 from a sporting shop in Auckland of New Zealand. It did cost me $200NZ. I had 500 shots with the gun. There are two problems I have found very quickly. They are - valve leaking and jams. Valve leaking is a common problems with most of Gamo co2 pistols. However I received a new magazine form retails. When it comes to the jams, the result of jams cause hard trigger pull. As most of the buyers complained hard trigger pull, it is actually caused by jams. The mechanical... (read more)

My Gamo v-3 CO2 pistol didn't work from the time it was pulled out of the box. Miserable workmanship. Horrid trigger, because of the slide that "moves". What Gamo doesn't tell you is that your finger moves it as you pull the trigger. Everything else that is above this is 1000% on the money. Don't waste yours.
I didn't even bother to send it back. The girl on the phone told me not to expect any satisfaction.
I smashed it with a 3 pound hammer, and will be mailing it to Ft Lauderdale... (read more)

I bought the Gamo V3 pistol the other day and was a bit disappointed when I put in the co2 and fired it at an orange and watched it bounce off. I thought I had purchased a dud gun. The next day I changeed the co2 canister and watched it proceed to fire a bb strait through the orange. It's the dud co2 from gun shops not the gun that is broken. This gun is incredibly reliable and has a nice weight while still remaining very accurate. The stiff trigger isn't really that stiff adds to the... (read more)

The Gamo V3 has the worse trigger pull (Nearly 11 pounds) on any gun I own. It is powerful though, and it will shoot lead or steel BBs through it's rifled steel barrel. It has what one would call "combat accuracy" That is, it will hit a paper plate every time from 40' during rapid fire. It is pretty heavy, and it feels like a real pistol. It is pretty easy to modify it, and the trigger pull improved when I did. It is pretty powerful, but the bad trigger pull ruined accuracy. Hope this helped. (read more)

I had the Gamo v-3 pistol for about a year. Most of the time it was sitting like new in the box. Like most of the other posts, the technical stuff was the same. I had to pull the trigger hard, it misfired a LOT, BBs would roll out of the gun (how embarrassing). I got approximately 200 shots out of the thing before the top 'slide' just came apart! It was never accurate shooting. A total mess. I own the p23 and the 44. Both of these guns so far, shoot accurately and are mechanically well. It's... (read more)

Having been to my local gunshop to purchase a Co2 pistol there was limited stock so ended up buying the Gamo v3. When I begun to fire the pistol I slowly realised why this gun was in stock and no other,the Gamo v3 has a feeling of almost wanting to break each time fired and that the power was extremely weak for a normal 177 Co2. Having to pull the trigger all the way back before a shot is fired means that the accuracy is greatly reduced and after shooting at a plastic drinks bottle (no more... (read more)

I bought my Gamo V3 last Sunday. I find it extremely powerful, accurate and pleasent to hold. I have previously had many pistols and rifles in the past such as the Gamo Shadow 640 and 1000. Agile, compact, reasonably affordabe. This truly is a boy's toy. Due to the rather stiff trigger of the V3 I would not recommend this pistol to anybody aiming to shoot moving targets. The V3 has a easy to load Co2 compartment in the magazine of the gun for easy loading being able to shoot up to 60 shots... (read more)

I bought the Gamo V3 Feb. 1 2005, I like the way it loads the CO2 which is similar as my Walther CP Sport. It's not too accurate but it's expected from a bb gun. Power? it's all there. I tested on my chrono it shoots at 405.5fps to 411.5fps. The trigger is hard to pull reminds me my walther CP88N and the CPSport. I think the way this semi-auto design, the trigger must pull the hammer back to later knock the pin. Unlike single shot you can cock the hammer first and the trigger just have to... (read more)

I bought the Gamo V3 when it was first released on the strength of a review in a gun magazine. The gun was supplied by Gamo without seemingly being oiled, and this made the trigger very stiff. Once I had oiled it up, it made a big difference to the trigger pull, and I have no problems now as long as I keep it oiled.
I also found that I wasn't getting what I thought was the claimed power; and on inspection, I found that the seal for the CO2 capsule was made of a too tough plastic to attain a... (read more)

Purchased the Gamo V3 to help my son start into the shooting sports. He wanted a laser as well so he would look cool. No problem, the literature stated a 450fps rating and the gun just looked good in the package. Unfortunately, the gun lost all of its shine when my son put his finger into the trigger. He was having a hard time getting the gun to shoot. I checked to make sure the safety was not on and that everything was in order. Looked fine so I took the first shot about 50ft from the...

Bought the gamo v-3 gun last week and it has already gone back for an exchange! It's that bad.
Ok, so what's the score with this pistol then?
Well, it looks good - it has the looks and weight of an alloy framed Colt Commander (something I used to own and shoot before the dark times descended on the sport) - and to be honest, that is what attracted me to the pistol. I was also quite impressed with the way the CO2 and BB's were integrated into the drop-out magazine - which also contains the... (read more)

Bought my Gamo v-3 via mail order, and immediately found the trigger went right back to the frame, thus unable to fire! Suppliers have agreed to replace, so no complaint with them, but this gun should never have got past the factory dispatch department.

The Gamo V3 Looks like a Colt Commander....Magazine houses BBs and Co2. Feels good in your hand. Worst trigger pull on any gun I have shot. Fake blowback works off the trigger. Have to pull the trigger almost all the way to the rear before it shoots. I wrote to Gamo and asked what I was supposed to do with this boat anchor. Never heard from them of course. They got my money which is what they wanted. No more Gamo guns for me. (read more)

I bought this pistol a few weeks ago as I thought it was good value. The trigger was extremely hard to pull which obviously affected accuracy. The barrel sprang open when I was loading it and it took ages to put back together. I was not immpresed I took it back and got my money back. I have bought a Daisy Powerline 622 .22 6 shot which is a lot better made than I thought it would be for the money. I am very pleased with it. (read more)
