Nice looking gun… lost about half the power after about 500 shots. Beings that it is off warranty, sending it to the garbage.

I traded for a used Big Cat that has had extensive use in the Florida weather by a Hog Hunter. He used it to dispatch captured Hogs in a some what quiet manner. He purchased the rifle 4+ years ago and plans to by another. I fired just a few rounds after cleaning and was surprised how accurate it was at 50 yards with standard pellets. Looking forward to some field time to see what kind of tissue damage it can produce.

Glad I found this site

After owning the Gamo Big Cat 1200 for about 3 weeks, I can say that it is a very good rifle. When you buy a Gamo Big Cat, or any pellet gun or rifle, it is extremely important that you read the instruction manual that it comes with. Reading the instruction manual will help you learn to properly operate the rifle and get the best out of owning it. Because of my positive experience with the Gamo Big Cat 1200, I recently bought a Gamo Socom Carbine and also bought a Gamo Big Cat for my daughter, who also shoots with me, as a Christmas present. The Gamo Big Cat 1200 is a great rifle for a little money.

I have tried several different pellets from the Raptor to Crow Magnums. Can’t get a group with anything. I put weaver rings on the scope to hold it in place. So I’m guessing the gun is ok but the scope is messed up. Couple shots will be right on then what the heck was that? I can get a better group at 15 yards with my bow.

Good price point and reasonably well made with the exception of the trigger action. Trigger pull is extremely long and heavy making it unpredicatable. I bought it to take care of squirrels and practice but the trigger finally caused me to throw it away.

At first it seemed like a good gun. I shot it about a tin, and it began locking up, I looked at everything that could have gone wrong but couldn’t find anything on the outside, so i used my press and took it apart and inside the seal was blown it must have happened during a deasel shot.

The bushing that the spring set over was broken in 3 peaces. The last Chrono showed in the low 300’s.

I saw in the owners manual do not return to the store, so i put it back together and put it all in the box, and it is in its final resting place.”My attic” too many light weight parts for a 1000 FPS air rifle, they need to make better seals and quit using flammable oil when putting these guns together.
