All I have is a Gamo CFX





I always have problems finding ammo the damn thing likes though. It doesn't load like most single-shot pellet guns I've seen. Instead of it being something like a break barrel, you cock it, then rotate the breach open and insert the round. I'm assuming that's why it's kinda finicky with ammo. It seems like high quality ammo, crap like Beeman and RWS are like a half millimeter too long, and when you rotate the breech closed, it squashes the back of the round, which probably murders velocity and accuracy.

Here's an RWS in it.




With cheap stuff like Crosman, I have the opposite problem though. Normal rounds will fit fine, but their tolerances are so crappy that anywhere from 1 in 10 to 1 in 100 (depending on the tin I get) pellets will be way too small.

Normal Crosman


Crappy Crosman


Gotta buy a new scope too. Damn one I have on now loses zero anytime the gun takes a little jolt.

Gun itself shoots well though. If I didn't suck at shooting with ironsights, I'd wouldn't even bother with the scope.

I have a Crosman XT Storm and a Beeman R2, both from Walmart and both equipped with scopes that came with them. I've been shooting these for a couple of years and they are a lot of fun. I also have a Crosman 1377 and 1322, very nice shooters.

Use an Allen wrench/key to push the pellet in all the way. Place the short end in the hole in the back of the pellet and push. You can shorten it if necessary.

I got a Gamo Hunter about 15 years ago when my hound got sprayed by a skunk in the backyard. After taking out 'Pepe LaPew' and enjoying the power & accuracy on some other varmints - I loaned it to a buddy who lived on the block and he used the heck out of it for 3 years.

I took it back when I moved to northern Wisconsin, and now I'm enjoying it all over again. Popped a $35 Red-Dot scope on it and have taken back control of my birdfeeders & suet cages from the squadron of squirrels who had been gorging like Rosie McDonald at 'The Country Buffet'.

With the price & scarcity of 'firearm ammo' - it's nice to be able to shoot for next to nothing.

By the way - what's the best .177 cal. Hunting pellet out there? I'd appreciate any suggestions - I'm using my old 'Gamo Magnum' pellets now.

I like the Crosman Destroyers, but there are probably much better ones out there.
