Had that problem with a Gamo Whisper. Chunked the Gamo scope and put on a decent scope and made it a very accurate rat killer.

"Springer" air rifles have what is referred to as reverse recoil, and can be sensitive to how you hold them. Scope bases on springers tend to work loose rather quickly, have you confirmed that everything is tight? How many different pellets have you tried? What level of accuracy are you seeking and at what distance? I agree with ditching the scope in favor of something better. . .

Gammos suck! I hate all springers especially the break barrel ones. I have been shooting air rifles for 40 years. Get you a pcp and you will never look back.

+1000


PCP, just do it. .25 Marauder is a good starter.

I spend over 300 on a Gamo, it was junk in less then 500 pellets.

I have a Gamo Whisper and I like it. I have been told the scope will not stay on it but mine is tight. Also I found for shooting rats that the Gamo Rocket pellets shoots better than any other pellet in this rifle. That pellet will drop a rat quick and accurate. Again I tried several pellets and found this one shoots the best in my rifle. As mentioned before I do have a 1974 Benjamin 22 cal That has been awesome but I have just about retired it for the Gamo.

With a springer you need to learn to hold your shot longer, just keep your crosshairs on the bullseye longer. Also search on-line and you will find a guy that sells a sampler of pellets, about 25 of 50 or 60 different pellets. Shoot till you find the weight and shape of pellet your gun likes.

Like several said,pellet selection and a real scope will make a shooter out of any brand.I can knock the eye out of a squirrel in a tall pecan tree with my old Gamo.I've had and still got a Sheridan,Benjamin and Gamo.I like all 3.Not one is junk.
