Hi i recently bought the cometa fenix 400 .22 this is my first gun (air gun ) and at first i had a few problems with it when i bought it i was ripped of bad paying just under 500 for this plus an aditinall 60 for a scope as i didnt know what these usually go for before i got it i had it set up in store and the bloke set my scope up wrong to the point i would zero it in and within 3 shots it was all over the place so i was zeroing it every 5 shots witch can be annoying when in the field but...

light , compact and of ok quality . just what the hunter ordered . not an 80 but every bit as capable and easier to shoot .
from new in my opinion really needs stripping and lubing properly . factory lube ( thick oil) seems to be only in the piston area which will make the rifle prone to dieseling. no lube on the spring .
however when done properly the rifle will be transformed . mainsprings wear quickly but careful when you put an aftermarket spring in as these will do around 20ftlbs .... (read more)

Nice gun, (Mine is the Carbine) could not zero at first pellets all over the place, changed sights, and set up properly. You must buy good sights and mounts and set correctly (I really had a lot of trouble, was going to return gun) gun now quite accurate now 1/2" group at 20yds. Dont use heavy pellets, Accu pellets etc, wasps ok, RWS flat field most accurte, then rws domed, forget pointed unless you want to shoot a cow at 15yds, AA domed also good, basically keep them light and use flat or...

Had the 400 carbine for about 4 months, although powerful, pellet accuracy tends to wander the more you use it. First 20 shots start low, working through exact acuracy, and about 40 shots in its starts shooting above POI. Any thoughts? Is my spring c--p, and only gets better as it warms up? Any advice from anyone would be good as it is anoying, thought it was me at first, so kept zeroing sights----- (read more)

Very nice gun, try different pellets though, found ACU Pellets a little tight and tend to drop quite a few shots. WASP seem good though, again nice gun for money Carbine works well although still get spring noise. Still powerful gun, punches through tins 20m +. Good hunter that does not need charging.

The Cometa Fenix 400 .22 is a cheap air rifle, good finish, dead accurate even at 50m - 80m. I had some problems at first with my spring so I had it replesed. I fitted a bushnell 3-9 -56 scope- this scope is made to go to real hunting rifles.
I use it for hunting crows, megpies, ducks, rats, rabbits and even foxes!!!
Becouse I live in Slovenia we have no limit to how poferful the air rifle can be, so my cometa air rifle is producing about 24 ft lbs ( 32 joules) of energy with 14 grain... (read more)

Bought my Cometa Fenix 400 .22 about a month ago and think its a very good springer for the price. I found the best pellets were RWS superfield 22. once handling is correct with this rifle, pellet on pellet is not uncommon at 30 yrds. Good finish, very accurate and cheap. (read more)

I bought the .22 version Cometa 400S 12ft/lb model from the local shop for Xmas 2008. I fitted it with an Optiks 3-12x 50 OE telescopic sight on a Webley one piece mount. The whole lot including the case and cleaning kit was £200. Zeroing was relatively stressless and once run in and the dieseling had stopped, the accuracy with both Eley dome heads and Webley hunting pellets was quite good. I zeroed it to 25 metres and was able to achieve a new 10p group with ease. I have now fired about... (read more)

Having spent a few years out of shooting i decided to take it up again . I have always had the better known makes Webley, Weihrauch, Air arms i thought i might go for a BSA lightning XL but after a bit of research and a bit of advice from my local gun shop i gave the Cometa fenix 400s a go its just as good as the BSA don't let the lower price tag put you off. I have been shooting for nearly 30 years and this gun is just as good as some of the better known makes. (read more)

Cometa Fenix 400 is a beautiful gun. Go buy one. Very powerful! I haven't got a confirmed kill yet (my hunting buddy threw a dead fox at me while i was lining up for a head shot on a rabbit, ended up hitting it in the lower spine, i think, and it got away... i definitely remember seeing a lot of damaged tissue as it rolled back down the hole!) Anyway, it's a great gun and with a one piece mount and good scope it is very accurate and capabe! (read more)

Excellent gun very accurate and consistently powerfull, if you want to make it harder hitting put a motorbike wheel spacer in with the spring easy to do if you have a mate help push down on the barrel. i shot a pigeon in the back of the head at 20m and it pushed its eye out of the socket along with half it brain (read more)

After hearing all the good things about this cometa fenix 400 in .22. I purchased mine while ago mainly for hunting.
Cometa fenix 400 .22 is probably the only few rifles that actually can do better then their factory claims. this rifle is doing 825+ fps with RWS superdoom (14.3 gr) .
The accuracy is very good, in 15 meters, shooting into one hole is easy.
Very well balanced, i also fit ultrafire touch onto the scope and sling that make night hunt for possum every easy. love this... (read more)

This is a very powerful gun, and therefore closing the spring requires some effort.
Th sights are more than adequate, but for those who prefer a scope, there are mounting grooves. Some pellet selection may improve accuracy, but this is usually a personal preference. (read more)

The Cometa 400 was a surprise birthday present last year. Two days later I added a Luger 4X32 scope and I think the setup is great. I suppose like all springers you have to learn how to hold it 'just right'. For me this means balancing it in my open left hand and just resting it gently against my shoulder.
In terms of accuracy its very good. Apart from the usual paper targets I've moved from using gambling chips, to beer bottle tops and now small beads which I can hit 3 out of 4 whilst... (read more)

Well I bought the Cometa Fenix on 04/02/04 from J S Ramsbottom, West Yorks UK. I bought the rifle as a knock about rifle, I was going for a BSA but the walnut stock and genaral looks and price turned me. I mostly use it for target shooting down my club and formal FT. After a while with wild shots I suspected that the spring was not doing its job so decided fit a OX Kasu spring ! Not as simple as one would expect after cutting off 4 coils and some fileing and emery cloth to reduce the... (read more)

I brought the Cometa Fenix 400 .22 2 years ago and went straight to the farm and killed 9 rabbits, each with one shot from at least 20-25 meters away. I think this is very accurate and cheap for the quality of the gun and would highly recommend this to any one who's looking for a powerful, accurate and cheap air rifle. This has a perfect finish to it. Great gun overall. (read more)

I Bought the Cometa Fenix 400 .22 for $399 NZ. Brought it home and began shooting over 25 meters which is the length of my "range" in my house. Started shooting at targets on a 16mm thick board but immediately found I'd underestimated the hit power of the gun. Went straight through! After some fiddling with the sights I found it easy to get fairly good groupings, certainly good enough to ensure a head shot on a rabbit or possum at say 20 meters or so. Had the odd flyer but that's just a... (read more)

I have recently purchased a Cometa Fenix 400 .22 and it is a great gun. I got a deal done which also included a quality Korean scope fitted onto some well made local optic ramps/bindings.
I should state now that I am not going to be reveiwing this gun as an off-hand shooter who couldn't care less about his equiptment. (Keep this in mind if you are just a casul shooter)
Only the best pellets are worth shooting through high powered, primarily hunting air rifles like the cometa 400. I primarily... (read more)

The Cometa Fenix is turning out to be another excellent buy.
The Cometa I have purchased has a stock made of spanish walnut,which is quite something to look at.
The trigger gard,tigger and front sight are made of plastic.The trigger is adjustable,as is the rear sight.
Now some people may not like plastic,but I think this means three less things to rust.
They look like they are well made,and you would have to be pretty careliss to break any of them.
The Cometa has a muzzle velocity of 825fps... (read more)
