Gamo Big Cat 1250 Review

Gamo Big Cat 1250 Review ( Air Rifle)

The Gamo Big Cat 1250 is one of my favourite Gamo air rifles. One of the main reasons is that the price is just right, at approximately 130 dollars. That’s a great value for an airgun and, to be fair, airguns for most users is just something that you play around with for a bit of fun, or something that you give to your kids in order to get them hooked on shooting. And at this price just about anyone can afford one.

The stock is made from a composite material. It is tough and durable and can handle any climate. It is ambidextrous and has a raised cheek piece on both right and left sides so all you south paws can also go plinking without problems. It has a checkered stock at the grip and in the front, so this air rifle won’t slip from you grip. The barrel is encased in a synthetic material so that makes it durable and almost maintenance free . The receiver is prepared for your standard .22 scope mount, so if you want to attach a scope, that is no problem. It has a protruding pin preventing that rifle scope from sliding backwards once mounted. The gun is pretty much a no-frills gun with the budget conscious air rifle buyer that only wants a cheap air rifle, so there are no unnecessary features here. On the other hand, most Gamo guns use the same mechanics, so when it comes to precision and power, this gun is just as good as a Gamo gun at twice the price.

This Gamo Big Cat air rifle bundle contains a basic 4×32 scope which naturally is not the greatest rifle scope in the world, but it does the job nicely.
The Gamo Big Cat 1250 is one of Gamo’s 1000 feet per second line of airguns. It does 1000 fps with lead pellets and closer to 1250 with PBA pellets. This gives it quite a punch. A thousands feet per second equals about 15 lbs of impact power at short ranges. It could actually be used for killing vermin as well as target shooting, at least if the precision is good enough, so let’s take a look at that next. And… the conclusion is that the precision is good. Even with a stock scope, I get 2 inch groups at 20 yards, which I gotta say is a very nice result for a very inexpensive air rifle.

The Big Cat 1250 reviews on the online marketplaces indicate that shooters are ver happy with this rifle. The spread of ratings indicate that 50 buyers of the Gamo Big Cat 1250 give either 4 to 5 stars out of 5 possible. And only about 6 customers rate this rifle between 1 to 3 stars. That is an overwhelming rating indicating that Gamo Big Cat 1250 is one hell of a good rifle at a very good price.
