Gamo Maximum elite is 200 bucks here.

All those cheap guns use the same piston and seals. The triggers are generally junk and can't be improved.
Wonder why it cots so much over there? You can get a nice actual rifle made for grown ups at that price, say an 17 HMR.

I have the hatsan Gladius on .177 and it's a decent rifle. Accurate and powerful

Gamo makes great stuff. Maybe the best.

The Gamo testing is looking at is a run of the mill chinese import with a nitro cylinder, hardly qualifies as one of the best. Some of Gamo's more expensive stuff is ok, but the Hatsun the previous poster has is a better made air rifle with a better trigger than anything Gamo has.

Have a link so I can look and confirm that price and look at other models there? Thats insanity to pay that kinda cake for that quality of pellet gun.

You just have to filter and make sure you purchase the rifles made in Spain.

The cost isa little more, but check out PCP air rifles. Night and day between regular pellet guns. I have 2 in .25 caliber and very accurate and powerful out to 100 yards.

An air rifle can come in handy, but I'd suggest a centerfire rifle (or rimfire if you're *certain* it will only be for plinking/small game).

The rifle suggestion is so that your weapon can be useful against 4 legged critters if needed.

Or you could combine the best of both worlds and this bad ass new toy, and get into Airbow... shooting arrows through air guns is fun!

You guys should check out air rifle forums,some companies are making big bore air rifles powerful enough to cleanly kill hogs and deer.Have a Gamo .177 that I have taken squirrels and coons with.Pretty sorry trigger pull but shoots fairly well.

I used to have a Gamo Magnum as a teenager, double spring, accurate enough to hit a rabbit in the eye, powerful enough for the pellet to take out half the skull on exit.

Damn I wish I still had that...

Yeah, I had a Gamo Magnum as well. Under-lever cocking rod, wooden stock. Was a great pelly gun. Solid barrel, super accurate, nice trigger. The newer gamo's I've seen didn't have triggers anything like it.

Lewis and Clark brought big bore air guns with them on their journey to the Pacific.

You do it with a £595 gun and call that throw away?

Not going the PCP route because of gas.
Looking at making my own pellets also.

Gamo Magnum pellets are cheap and I've found them to be my pelly of choice, they're a couple grains heavier, pack more punch.

I'm afraid to go .22 on my non-pre charge gun....cause it hit a rabbit once and bounced off his fur....and just made him get shoved over a step.....so i'm .177...

I was completely unaware of the big bore air guns......wow

If you get a good gun you won't feel the need to.

I sometimes enjoy the first shot after oiling the barrel though it often ignites a little.
