For years our family has been shooting many different type of rifles and handguns and the pellet rifle would not be the exception. However, I would be amiss if I didn’t bring up our experience of late. We purchased one of Gamo’s Aearo pellet rifles at $170. However, after a short while we found it necessary to call Aearo’s customer service explaining how three of us now have pinched fingers with small cuts. Their response was with little concerned while indicating their newer rifles would address these concerns, but we were stuck with our purchase. The second concern mentioned was the noise it made with each shot; one might as well shoot a .22 or shotgun for the noise generated. We tried to sell it but found no takers. We waited to see what their newer line would bring, expecting a much better trigger system along with a noise suppressor, which now became obvious, but the trigger was as before while costing considerably more even with its dubious scope.
If anyone’s been paying attention, most of these triggers systems are the gun’s weakest design, while being the noisiest of guns. We’ve decided to stay with the .22’s while giving the Gamo’s .177 away.
