I was pleasantly surprised at the weight and construction of this air rifle. After a few dozen rounds of dieseling and random performance while it burned off the heavy shipping oil, it began to settle down and produce .25 inch groups at 40 ft. I cleaned the gun and used sewing machine oil for another round of diesel belches and burps, after this second round of thinner oil burned off I was able to get the same grouping at 60 ft. Not bad for a sub $400 dollar gun. Using my chronograph I... (read more)

I purchased a GRIFFON AIR RIFLE back in 07 from a guy for 85.00. I live in the united states. Though I was enamored by this weapon, I fell on hard times and had to sell it. I severely regret the sale of said weapon since I was unaware of its rarity in the US. If anyone knows how I could obtain another one of these for my son I would be forever in your debt. email me at email@example.com (read more)

Not a patch on a pukka European gun, but worth the 70 quid it cost me in Feb 06 as a birthday present for my 11 yo son. Needs a bit of care initially to tighten it up and needs 500 shots through it to clean up the gun oil in the mechanism. Would be super for ratting if a laser was fitted (if the laser can take the recoil) as the short barrel is great in and around buildings. (read more)

I have been shooting with this air rifle for about 2 months now, mainly rabbits, and have found it to be one of the best all round rifles that i have used. It has a lot of recoil but as long as you have a good shot you can compensate for it.
The multi shot magazine comes in useful if you need to reload quickly but the gun gives off a loud noise when it is fired. I have fitted a silencer to mine which helps, but does not make that greater difference.
I would recommend this gun for beginners.... (read more)

Be advised! Due to the Continental Weapons Griffon Bullpup's unique design it would not be out of place in the next "Arnie movie".
I`ve had one for 9 months now and it is great for what it is designed for "Backyard Plinking".
Accuracy is fine (1" groups @ 15yds) if you use a good flat head like RWS R10s and only load 9 or 10 pellets into the mag (to avoid crushing the skirts)
It does have an "anti bear trap mechanism" but holding on to the side lever when changing the magazine is always... (read more)

Continental Weapons Griffon Bullpup 15 shot .177: Hope this review is useful (it's my first one).
I've been using this rifle for about 2 months.
It use a side lever cocking mechanism. Using Gamo Match pellets, it was able to shoot at about 700ft/s. (Tested at shooting range)
I tried different types of pellets, and found the Gamo Match to be the most accurate.
It is easy to assemble and to operate.
More powerful than most other rifles in the same price range.
Bad... (read more)
