I shoot at empty pellet tins with open sights at 40 yards and hit them most of the time. Anything beyond that defies the laws of Physics, no matter what you read on the Internet.If you intend to use it for hunting and given you can get the 18 foot pounds spring I'd go for the .22, since at reasonable ranges this gun will surely overkill your game. Well balanced,excellent adjustable trigger, light recoil and no twang at all. You won't get anything better for the price… Read Full Review

I was recommended this Cometa Fenix 400 .177 ca by somebody else. I wasn't going to spend that much but as it turned out, it was definitely worth the extra few bucks. It's a solid well built rifle and I would certainly recommend it to others. The trigger release is really good and was indeed one of the selling points. Accuracy out of the box is as good as it gets, I guess (not having owned every air rifle ever made), but I can't believe how good the grouping can get after using only a handful… Read Full Review

Owned my cometa .177 400 for about a year and after initial sighting in and finding the best pellets at the best price (White pellets seem the best all round for weight accuracy and price) it has performed without fault and hits everything i point it at. So far i have hit and killed with a single shot rats, feral cats, possums, magpies, pigeons, and once shot a wild young goat at 50 meters and killed it with a single head shot , was that a fluke...will never know because i hav'nt had the chance… Read Full Review

I have owned and consistently shot with this rifle for about five years now. I have not had to replace the spring or any other part of the whole. I have however had to adjust my scope setting one or two clicks during this period to compensate for the natural metal fatigue taking place in the spring.
I believe my continued confidence and trust in this rifle is proof that a little maintenance after each use goes a very long way.
In other words, LOOK AFTER IT AND IT WILL LOOK AFTER YOU.
Cheers… Read Full Review

I have been shooting with the break action Cometa Fenix 400 for around a year now so I have come to know its pro's and con's quite well, first of all its a very powerful rifle. At the UK legal limmit of 12 reduced from 20 (because its a spanish rifle) it is easy to kill a target from 20-25 meters with supreme accuracy (assuming of course your sight is spot on).
Secondly, it is easy to load and not too fiddely to put the pellets into the barrel (I use lubricated pellets for easy swift… Read Full Review

Cometa Fenix 400 .177 cal:
I wanted a magnum .177 cal rifle to deal with the large number of birds down on the farm. Having already spent a fair bit of money on my .22 rifle to take care of the rabbits (you may care to read my review on the Gamo 1250) I was definitely working to a budget!
Although I had some misgivings about the plastic trigger and guard, as well as the plastic around the front sight cowl and the rather cheap rear sight set up, I felt that the Cometa would do the job… Read Full Review
