I am amazed at the American Attitude about weapons when anything is made out of America. After owning Remingtons and Marlins over the years there reliability and Quality now doesnot leave much to be desired. Great Air Rifle and reliable something the Yanks have Forgotten. (read more)

I bought my CFX 2 months ago and I couldn't believe it's accuracy out of the box..!!, I mounted a scope on it and started making dime groups at 20mts. after only 8 or 10 shots..!! Beautiful look & feel, easy to cock, user friendly but the trigger needs adjustment for shure. I would highly recommend this gun to everybody..! (read more)

Really accurate airgun. The airgun is a bit heavy but learning the proper handling will allow you to be more effective.
If you intend to go for target shooting, this airgun will be great for you. If you'd go hunting, it'll still be good, just not sure if it'll be able to sufficiently get a kill. Overall it is a great airgun that I'd definitely recommend.

Picked up this airgun at a good price. The gun Has a great feel to it and I like the side grip inserts and the synthetic stock is comfortable and is good quality.At first it took me awhile to get use to the rotary breech because it can be a bit fiddly but after a while of shooting it gets much easier.The bluing is fairly good but mine needed a good clean because it was sitting in the shop for a long period of time.The gun is a bit top heavy but with a scope it balances it out more. The fiber... (read more)

If you want to buy this gun, please read this. I bought my gamo cfx about a year ago and had no complaints about it but now when i try to get the aiming centred over about 25-30m the bullet just seems to go where it wants to. its a good gun over to about 50m but it loses alot of speed and energy. I was trying to shoot guini fowl with it oer 40m. they were very wild and was the closest i could get. it shoots a centre shot at 40m. they flew away before i could pull the trigger and just took a...

I have had the CFX for over a year now. This gun is by far the most accurate air rifle I have shot. I put a GRT III trigger on it...no first stage travel and it has an extremely light pull on the order of 1 pound. I also removed the front and read fiber optic sights and added a raised cheek piece to compliment my 3-13X44 BSA scope. I have done extensive testing of power and ballistics with various pellets, and JSB exact 8.4's have stood out as the best. This rifle will achieve no... (read more)

Well i owned this rifle for about a year. The accuracy is what keeping me amazed every time when i shoot this rifle. After getting almost into intimate relations with this gun i achieved 1 inch groupings at 60 yards. scope leapers 3-16-50. Under 50 yards small critters don't stand a chance. Best ammo for me so far is jsb exact heavy for long range hunting(hit very hard). crow mags and predators under 30 yards.Installed grt trigger totally new gun .Best gun for the money.

Mine's a .22 CFX. The best of 3 air rifles that I have. Into target shooting.
Kneeling and shooting at about 25m with a BSA Essential 4x32AO scope and hitting targets within a 3cm diameter circle using Gamo Match pellets. Think I can do better if I tried harder.
Manage to "cut" a 1mm think steel can in two using 10 pellets.
The elevated scope rail includes mounting holes for scope mounts to prevent scopes from slipping.
Underlever sure is easier to cock compared to break-barrel. ... (read more)

I just bought the Gamo CF-X and fitted a Bushnell 3-9x40. When I went out to our shooting range to zero in the scope the gun broke after about 17 shots. I went to the local store where I bought it and instantly got a replacement rifle, and just moved the scope to the new gun.
When I took the new gun out to the range it broke in the exact same way as the last in about 15 shots.
The problem is that it doesn't lock the spring after loading the rifle. It will just act like I'm holding the... (read more)

Would gladly buy this gun again. Solid feel, very accurate under 30 yards, affordable, well made, love the fiber optic sites.

Rotating breach not a speed loader and the pellets don't always fall in the right direction, must seat with finger nail most of the time. (read more)

VERY happy with my purchase and it's doing me great service at the local air rifle club with the HFT comp shoots. For your specific altitude and therefore power factor I would advise doing a self test for which pellets your gun will prefer. For me it threw a good few around before I found one that I could consistantly keep in the bullseye! (read more)

I was given the Gamo CFX as a present last christmas. My first impression was 'WOW'. I took it out straight away and sighted it in. Have mounted on it Hawke 4 x 40 sights. It came with the gun. When I got it zeroed in that night targets were in danger, with me been able to hit a grouop of 5 the size of a 10p at 30 yards I found out right away this was an extreemly accurate gun. I was only out for about 1 hour and in that time I bagged myself 11 hits. On the way back there was a big crow sat... (read more)

This is my first rifle: it has a great accuracy, definitely a great deal. The CFX came up with an excellent package with optic + laser + torch. Torch is useless to me but some might have fun using this rifle by night. I shoot from a 30m range to 100 meters. With the optic it's easy to shoot a coin several times within the closest range. A cigarette pack can be easily reached at 100m. As I'm new to this shooting sport I encounter some issues with the optic from a shooting session to the... (read more)

You can't go wrong with this rifle. For approx $200 US, you'll get an accurate, easy to cock rifle with lots of upgrade potential, should you wish to do so.

I've had such a good experience with the CFX that I'm now going to spend some real dollars/pds for an Air Arms Prosport (read more)

The CFX is my 3rd air rifle, and by far the best one I've ever had. It is very accurate both with scope and the standard sights. Personally I don't think it shoots quite hard enough (about 755 ft/s with the 5.5 pellet version), but it's hard enough for hunting birds and such. I also really like it's design.
The only small disadvantage is that it doesn't shoot as hard as for example the Hatsan 125, but it still delivers a killing effect so all in all a very nice rifle! (read more)

I would recommend it as a first time rifle or for advanced plinkers and hunters.I would always go for the royal model as i love the wood finish but black model is not too shabby. Fluorescent inserts in the open sights are very attractive also and looking down the barrel can very easily be mistaken for small led type bulbs.I have not used the guns own sights yet but am sure they will do the job in emergencies.

This is the first under-leaver rifle i have owned, I bought it mostly because I was curious to see how different they could be compared to the break barrel variety. When I shopped around I narrowed my choice to the Gamo CFX and the Weihrauch HW97, my decision was based mainly on the obvious difference in cost but i was also keen to try a synthetic stock as all my previous rifles were wood, also the Weihrauch's always seem uncomfortably nose heavy to me and I don't enjoy firing them...

I bought the gamo cfx last Saturday. it is a great rifle and i enjoy it every time i shoot. however in my opinion loading the rifle is a hassle especially when you are in prone position, also when you are in prone for over 20 minutes, your wrist starts to pain a bit due to the weight on the front of the rifle. but in all, the rifle is worth every cent you pay for it.

I live on 45 acres, and have a problem with rabbits and hares coming into the garden during the night. A normal gun is too loud, and I didn't want to risk stray shots going into the neighbours houses. Based on the excellent reviews of the CFX, I made my purchase in .177.
I haven't been disappointed. The CFX has proven to be ideal for both plinking and hunting. Since I am primarily hunting rabbits and hares, I opted for a red dot scope from Vector Optics on a cantilever mount. Not only... (read more)

I've had my CFX for 2mths now and I have to be honest, I took it back after the first 100 pellets as it didn't feel to be punching at its alleged weight (apparently around 11.3ft/lb). Gunsmith told me to run the rest of my 500 tin through it and if the 10.3ft/lb didn't bump up they'd respring it. On return visit it had dropped to 9.4ft/lb so respring was done. It came back a different rifle (although not without teething problems). The main thing is finding the ideally matched pellet for... (read more)

Great unique mechanism too.
