“Gamo 640 .22Cal”

Written on: 15/12/2013

I have this gun in .22cal and would recommend to any beginner. I do a lot of pest control and would only recommend for very small game e.g. Rats and small pest birds. I have humanly dispatched many rabbits with it also, however it is only wise to do so if you are an experienced shooter as the shot placement is paramount. I also have an air arms s400f and this is perfect for rabbits (just to put it out there). The only down side with this gun is the fact it's power is extremely low and the… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2011

I have the .22 version of this rifle (Gamo Shadow). I am using a scope on my one so i don't know how accurate the fiber optic sight is on the gun. The scope that may come with it is a Gamo 4x28 and, in my opinion, is useless! The gun is only as accurate as the shooter.You also need to find the pellets which are most accurate in your gun, I recommend FX Airguns air rifle pellets. The gun is very easy to use and handle. It has a lightweight synthetic stock with a rubber but-pad. It has a two… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2009

I used my Gamo shadow 640 .177 Air rifle for the first time on the ten metre air pistol range shooting 536 out of possible 600. Really happy with accuracy but found the trigger leaves a bit to be desired. I would happily pay another fifty dollars more to get a better trigger. Having said that I have adjusted the length of pull and it seems to be a bit better. time will tell when I shoot again next week. It is difficult to buy anything without actually trying it out before hand and it would have… Read Full Review

I bought the Gamo Shadow 640 air rifle to rid the house at the Lake of overrun of squirrels. I can hit them, sometimes even knock them out of a tree, but most of the time they shake it off and run away. Now I guess I'm going to have to spend more $$$ for a 1000ft per second gun… Read Full Review

Patgreen123's Response to 215017_Goldie 57's Review

Written on: 04/04/2006

Shot placement is everything! Especially with a pellet rifle. After a bit of practice I can get 1 shot kills out to 50 yards and sometimes more with my shadow 1000. This is considerably more powerfull that the 640 carbine but I have a friend who has one and both of us have killed out to about 35 yards with either a head or neck shot, or a well placed shot in the vitals. Just keep practicing. Practice is especially important when shooting a spring gun as the recoil can ever so slightly throw off your shot. Keep it up and I'm sure you will get a tree rat sooner or latter!

I've owned the Gamo Shadow 640 Air Rifle for about two weeks and I love it! Anyone who says you need 1000fps must be going after deer or elk. I've killed squirrels, crows and rabbits from 40yds with the Gamo hunter and master pellets. I also own a crosman 2250 and this is a lot better! Another plus is that the thing only cost me $80… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2005 by matan104 (2 reviews written)

I have recently purchased a Gamo Shadow 640 on my holiday and have put about 1500 rounds though it already. I have found that while accurate 3.5 cm groups at thirty yards are easily possible with the truglo open sights that come with the gun. However its ability to put down varmints is marginal. It will take blackbirds and magpies at up to 30 yards, but rabbits take a while unless your shot is spot on (at 15 yards) and possums will laugh at you unless you put one in the brain or throat. (no… Read Full Review
