Asalam Alaikum...

I checked our my Gamo Shadow readings on the chrony like 2 weeks ago.. had fired like max 300 pellets by then. The test was performed using the most common quality pellets available in Pakistan i.e. Gamo Pro Mags...The calculations were done over a group of 10 shots



Highest Velocity:698.2 fps
Lowest Velocity: 662.8 fps
Average Velocity:678.4 fps
Extreme Spread: 35.41 fps
Standard Deviation: 11.35 fps

Thanks. Very close to the claimed parameters. I understand this would be .22 because for .177 the MV is around 1200 fps.

This is some nice info Deathrow!
Thanks for sharing.

I wonder with which pellets will the Shadow 1000 give the claimed 1000fps performance?!?! :think:

Oops, sorry I did not notice. That's a big difference, 700 and 1000 fps. So it's related to some special kind of pellets. Which ones?

The 1000 fps comes in .17 mm Pellets.... I forgot to mention that these stats are for .22 mm

@Deathrow

If you can, please check whether tight fitting pellets give better velocity or loose fitting pellets?

I used Gamo .22 pellets and found some went in the barrel easily, while some had to be pushed to enter the barrel.

My own hunch is that loose fitting pellets will have lower velocity, while tight fitting pellets will give higher velocity, but only a test with chrony will give actual results.

And loose fitting pellets will not be accurate as well.

Or, if you can chrony gamo promags vs. irani pellets. i think irani are lighter and although fit well in the barrel, they are loose compared to promags. again i think promags should perform better here.

this will for "ummat ki behtari", we all would get a clue to the actual difference between using two commonly available pellets.

The main issue with Irrani Pellets is their inconsistent construction which makes them extremely inaccurate as compared to Gamo. If you are really lucky then you might find a batch or two which are slightly better

I just bought a NIB GAMO Shadow 1000 from Guns for Defence, Lucky Star about an hour ago!
Honestly I have ZERO information/knowledge about airguns but choose this model after reviewing the threads.
ED helped me out to get the prices from Lucky Star. Thank you ED!
Deathrow and other seniors who are already using Shadow, pls help me to use it.
Will upload pics in seprate thread.

Last day I had a chit chat with Hussain Brother , I always saw one gamo shadow in his display and his asking price is 22K. I told him that at Lahore its available in 15 to 17K and at karachi its for 18K , quoted by HAWKS eyes.

Btw In how much did you get ?
Where in Karachi you will find the game ?
Are you planing to get scope for it too ?

Regards.

Sulzar bro.. I paid 15.5K. At first he quoted me 17k. After initial negotiations he said 16.5K. Then I introduced myself as a TGF member on which he said my final price will be 15.5K.
Yes, planing to get a scope as well but maybe in next month. Have to get the ED's help to find a good scope in best price :-)

Sulzar bro.... I bought this gun not for hunting but for my 7 years old son to get familiar with guns. He likes guns and got facinated after seeing my targets from shooting range! So I thought to buy an airgun and will do target shooting with him on weekends. :-)

Sure its a good gun and people do use this for proper hunting! Maybe in future along with TGF I may use this for hunting as well.

What about you? Are you into hunting with airgun?

@ textiledoctor, Congradulations on your purchase.... and that is excellent price you got, infact the best you can find in Karachi I suppose... I got mine very slightly used at higher price than that....

Let me brief you a bit about the weapon..... I have been in touch with some very senior members and trust me, after using the most expensive of Airguns they were actually considering resorting back to Gamo Shadow for various reasons... It is a very very good Airgun and in this very thread you can notice the average FPS for it....

The worst thing about this Airgun is the trigger... It is going to get better in time but still...the travel is too long, too much creep in second stage... and at one point I was actually considering doing a trigger replacement on my Shadow...

When getting a scope for your weapon, do remember that you are not going to be hunting / aiming beyond 50 yards....I have a 3 x 9-44mm Optima Scope attached to my shadow through and I think it does perfect justice to the gun...

One thing be very careful of... the front sight is easily detachable and many people loose it so as soon as you mount a scope, take it off and keep it somewhere safe...

You may post some pictures of your Shadow :-)

Deathrow & Sulzar.... you know what???
I lives in an appartment on 3rd floor. Few mins earlier I went into the balcony for smoke. While smoking and thinking about my new gun I saw a big rat on ground floor at approx 45 mtrs distence!
I thought to try to take it down!
And beleive me.... on my first ever shot of Shadow, I took that rat down!!!! :-) :-) :-)
I took the rest and support from the metal grill in my balcony, aim at rat with the sights, pulled the triger ánd rat got hit maybe in the head!
I showed the dead body to my wife and she is also shocked and now asking me to stay ib balcony to shoot few more since there ate many rats out there :-)) :-)
Its a bit dark out there otherwisr I would have take some pics of that dead rat :-)

Gamo should be around 16k. Usman of Guns for Defense shop in Lucky Star is one of the wholesalers. I've posted a review of his shop in Market Intel section.

@ textiledoctor, I got my Optima scope 3 x 9-44 from a fellow TGF member. It was used and he sold it to be for 4K which too he was not willing to take and I had to persist him to accept it. Not just that, he even came over to my house and installed it for me. This scope comes installed in the Hatsan Sniper 125. Since he upgraded his scope, he sold his previous one to me.

I would recommend you to go for a genuine scope and not to opt for a Chinese scope no matter how attractive the deal seems. There are a few fellow members who are very satisfied with their Chinese scopes but why gamble..? Play a safe bet.

If you have people you know in Lahore and Islamabad, I believe the scopes are available much cheaper there. In Karachi the dealers are charging too much. Try to purchase a scope from one of the fellow members? Something maybe slightly used and that works fine without using shims..?

and Congratulations on your first hunt. Just be very careful with this gun, it is very very powerful. It exploded though one inch Lasani wood, every shot that I fired through the gun went through. Let me see if I can find the pictures, I`ll post them if I do.
