I am looking for a scope for my GAMO Shadow 1000.
I am not a hunter or a professional air gunner. Just wanted to buy an economical scope to have an experience of targeting with scope.
My range is Rs.3k to max 8k.
If any used scope is available, I will prefer to have that if asking price is reasonable.
Thanks.

Brother just one advice. Since I have a gamo too.. Shadow shoots at a avg of 690 to 700 fps. The kinda of force this gun produces, you can aim/ hunt at maximum 50 meters so you don't need a scope with very super Dooper specs... I have an optima scope which is 3x9-42mm and I think anything above might a waste of resources.

If you've purchased the Gamo recently and are new to air rifle shooting then I would suggest that you shoot a few hundred pellets using it without any scope. Do not use sub standard pellets. Air rifle shooting is a great way to build your foundations of rifle marksmanship skills. Once you've improved your shooting to a certain level then consider getting a scope for it.

When it comes to scope, remember, good scopes cost good money and are worth every penny spent. Also, a good scope is useless without a good set of rings.

Try to find Ghazi sb's thread on scopes and go through it to learn more about scopes.

The optima scope I had was sold to me by a dear friend and it's the standard scope which comes with Hatsan Sniper.

And the advice given above is correct too. I second it. Practice with open sights first...then get a good quality scope. You can consider asking Usman at guns for defence, Luckystar. What I meant earlier was that you don't need a scope with very high specs for Gamo Shadow...

And as far as pellets are concerned, your minimum standard should be Gamo matches or promags... No Irani and local pellets....later you can consider RWS pellets..
