Gamo Varmint Hunter

The Gamo Varmint hunter air rifle is a break barrel air rifle perfect for small game hunting, pest control and target shooting during the day or night. It is a cool looking air rifle combining a synthetic Monte Carlo stock with a fluted polymer bull barrel. It is an all-weather rifle that comes with a 4x32mm scope, a laser sight and a very bright flashlight. The Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle can fire .177 caliber lead pellets at 1.000 feet per second and can fire .177 PBA (Performance Ballistic Alloy) ammo at a dazzling speed of 1.200 feet per second! This powerful air rifle has a spring piston powerplant and the Monte carlo stock has a raised cheekpiece on both sides so it is perfect for right but also for left-handed people.

The Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle has a two-stage adjustable trigger with manual safety. The cocking effort is 30lbs so it’s difficult for kids to cock, but this is not an air rifle for kids anyway. There is an anti-bear-trap safety mechanism that makes sure that your fingers are safe when cocking the rifle. The butt-stop is made of ventilated rubber to absorb recoil. The grip and forearm have a checkering anti-slip design.

Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle customer reviews and conclusion

Most of the customer reviews are very positive, there are some less positive reviews but they are all old and are about the old version of this rifle. Many people say this air rifle is one of the most accurate air rifles they have ever used, but the scope needs to be sighted in quite frequently which can be a bit annoying, but after sighting the scope in some people claim to hit ½” groups at over 30yards.

The laser sight and flashlight are a bit difficult to form an opinion of, as some people were super positive about the accuracy and use of it and others claimed they are useless gimmicks and not very accurate. Maybe some people were unlucky to get a bad laser sight or flash light or maybe it’s just personal preference.

The Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle is not very quiet when shooting with PBA ammo. It is definitely not a rifle you want to fire in the middle of the night if your neighbors are light sleepers.

Many people use this air rifle as its name suggests: for killing varmint and small-game. The stopping power of this air rifle is amazing and many varmint and other small-game have met with an instant death through this rifle. There was even someone who shot the neighbors cat of his fence with it, which was fatal for the cat. So I would not suggest you use it on anything that you want to keep alive.

Overall the new version of the Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle is a really powerful and highly accurate air rifle that is highly effective to kill varmint even at night using the flashlight and laser sight. Negative about the air rifle is that it is on the loud side when using PBA ammo, but it’s a rifle, they make noise. The other thing is that it has no iron sights. But the scope will be all that you need and if you use the laser you can basically fire it from the hip. We totally recommend this rifle for anybody who wants a powerful and highly accurate air rifle, just make sure you tighten the screws on the scope, laser sight and flashlight before sighting them in. We do not suggest young children to use this rifle as the Gamo Varmint Hunter Air Rifle is very powerful, too powerful for young children.
