Gamo ''Big Cat'' 1400 .177 rifle Login/Join

May I ask opinions of this rifle. It retails in the area of 200$. A 4x32 scope is included. Is it a solid buy or should I consider a better choice at this price point ?

I got mine for a little over $100. I have a steel target at just over 50 yards and I am keeping inch to inch and half groups with Diablo pellets. Scope that came with it is in my safe. I put a BSA scope on it. I also have 4 rings in the dovetail to keep the scope on. Base that came with it backed off every 35-40 rounds. In less than 100 shots, scope backed off enough to fall off.

Have not shot the bronze pellets. Scope is sighted in to hit turtles in the head at 50 yards. When they stick their head up, it is about the size of a dime. Every 3-4 shots I get one. Good trigger time.

Thanks for the review. Was your new or used for 100$ ?
