The title says it all. I lost the 9 or 10 shot tubular magazine, which is too easy to do. I can't seem to locate a replacement mag anywhere. Well built, quality gun. It is definately an adult size gun. I would like to find a new mag if anyone knows where I can buy one. (read more)

Its a superb gun,very accurate,light weight,high power,& accuray makes it all in one gun. I am using gamo match pellets and they are working excellent.No need for expensive pellets.This gun can bring down any bird/target within 20 meters with open sights.Now i prefer this gun for all purpose than my Diana 52 & 36 which are pretty heavy. I bought this from a friend who now regrets selling. SAAMI From Dubai (read more)

I have used the shadowmatic .177 for around a year now and it has been brilliant. I gave up with the magazine a long time ago as i was using domed pellets for hunting which teneded to sheer off at the ends. Also, using it means that the scope must be higher which complicates the versitility of the scope at different ranges.
For hunting, this rifle has been great. I have been getting headshots on pigeons at up to 30yards every time. I use it with Bisley magnums which gives it a bit more of... (read more)

General: This air rifle is in one word awesome!
I've got this rifle in .177 for four years now and i only had to let it get repaired once because i released the barrel to fast while cocking and it slammed so hard it accedently broke the spring but i never had any other problems! I liked the truglo sights that were on but i never used them because i have a scope i removed them. The rear sight is easely removeable just remove the screws and then you've got one thing left and that is the screw... (read more)

If you live in the UK and are after a gun which can shoot bang on the legal limit accurately then buy this gun. If you are the sort of person that prefers craftsmanship over power or wants both go for air arms or the Weinreich HW95. (read more)

I bought the shadowmatic 2 years ago and it is still in very good shape, besides the glow in the dark sights breaking and the "magazine" also breaking it is a very good rifle (read more)

It is a great gun with high power and max precision (for air-rifles that is).The 10 bullet magazine is great also, but you can't put sharp bullets into it: The only way to have a scope on that is to make the scope holder tighter(nearer to each other) (read more)

It is a ok rifle as it comes to multi shot but could perform better if did not jam so much. Light weight very accurate the only problem is that i found mine jammed a lot. (read more)

Great gun with open sights, although the magazine occasionally gets jammed. I have consistently taken out possums with it at 10m. When I wanted to put a scope on it, I realised that it will become a single shot, so I didn't. Below 20m, it's great for both hunting and targets, but if you want to shoot further you need a scope. And that, will make this gun lose its most outstanding feature and become the same as other break barrel airguns. (read more)

I found the Shadowmatic by accident while looking for the Gamo Varmithunter rifle combo on the net. I have never seen the Shadowmatic in a catalog or an ad, and it's not even listed on the Gamo website. It's got to be the best kept secret in adult airguns. If they come out with this gun in .22 I will buy one of those as well.
I bought the Shadowmatic and the Varmithunter scope kit seperately and made up my own combo. Because of the location of the tubular magazine on top of the... (read more)

I recommend unless you live in a free country or U.S. State that isn't run by Nazi's. Otherwise a .22 cal rifle is cheaper, more powerful, and accurate at longer ranges. Remember your second amendment rights! (read more)

Gamo Shadow Matic, are very hefty and well balanced. Was going to put a scope on it but the sights are very good. (read more)

I have found the Gamo Shadow matic to be very easy to cock. I removed the fiber optic portion of the front sight since I have a scope. I also removed the rear sight completly. Just dont need them.
I wish I could remove the entire front sight assembly, but the barrell is knurled to acept the sight base.
This is the first high powered air rifle I've owned, and I am very pleased.
I do however have a problem with it jaming on the first round racked, once in a while. I am only shoothing flat... (read more)

I was at first very pleased by the Gamo Shadow Matic rifle, it was a similar looking rifle to the famous remington 500 series, very nice stock, very big and heavy, but it soon became more of a curse to me rather than a blessing since it was so big and I could hardly reach the the barrel, and cocking it was a bit hard, the first few times I had to wrestle with it to break it open but finally I got to do it more easilly.
But I am very pleased with it, i'm 23 years old and I thought that an... (read more)
