    Default What scope for Gamo CF30

    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and site, so please excuse the ignorance

    I have a Gamo CF-30, with a very small and cheap 7x20 scope, which seems to have given in(albeit not that much but bad enough!) to the spring piston recoil.

    I was reading under the thread 'Best scope for Gamo CF-X' and i see the Nikko is the way to go, but what specs would be worth looking at for general target/messing about?

    Thanks!

    You really can't go wrong with the advice given in that thread about the Nikko stirling airking, a 4x12x42, would be ideal for the shooting you wish to do.

    Great! Thanks Now my next question... I am in Johannesburg and the only place I have been able to find air pistol/rifle equipment is at a very expensive place in Sandton... is there any other place I can go which specialises in air rifle equipment/accessories etc? I have no idea who I would even ask about Nikko optics!

    Thanks!

    Hi Krod, just fit her first. I remember my 4-12Airking fitted my stutzen(same powerplant as CF30) just. Remember the loading port pops up and you need access to load the pellet. If the scope fits and you can load without to much problems the 4-12 airking is the way to go.

    Krod. Camdix in Krugersdorp have a wide range of Nikko Stirling,Hawke and Ultraoptics in stock and the pricing is fair. They also stock an impressive range of pellets to choose from.

    Thanks all, I believe the Nikko comes with mounts?

    Default Nikko Mounts

    Nikko scopes do come with mounts - but today I upgraded to higher Hawke mounts for my new Gamo Shadow 1000. The standard mounts are very low.

    I think I'll upgrade for my smaller Gamo as well.

    Hi Krod,

    yes the Airking comes with a one piece mount. Your CF30 has a raised rail right? Unlike the shadow which does not have a rail. The Nikko mount you will recieve with the scope will be fine.

    Sorry, missed this post awhile back.

    The mounts are not raised on the CF-30, however, I now have the Nikko Airking 4-12x42 and its very comfy...

    Sighting in this weekend
