Which one of the above 2 rifles will you chose and why?
My first gun was a Hunter 440. Shot about 500 pellets through it and then when i cocked the gun the side of the stock where the spring is joined to it just snapped! :twak
On closer inspection that side of the stock was thinner than the other.
I live in PE and bought the gun in JHB, my dad took the gun up and showed the guy at the gun shop where he bought it from and got told it wasn't he problem as there was nothing wrong with the gun it was my fault!! :cursin
My advice would be to just check it out properly before you buy if you go with the Gamo...
Name & shame the dealer !
In cases like this , the dealer should have at least submitted the rifle to the importer / maker & let them decide if it was indeed operator error or a legit fault .
That dealer has effectively shot himself in the foot .
Like my experience , when I mentioned to a dealer ( I bought many guns from them over time ) a few years back , that my CF 30 was'nt grouping , he did'nt suggest trying pellets like AA , he just told me I cant shoot !
I was a bit surprised at that , I guess he knows best . Having won gold at SA Combat rifle , plus free state , southern gauteng & Natal champs , obviously I'm just a wobbler in this experts eyes !
Amazingly enough , another gun shop in Hillcrest helped me , use AA pellets, & so I'll never deal with the first one again .
