Target shoot, hunt, Plink?

I recently bought a CFX in .177.
Depending on the pellet it is hard to load them in the bore all the way.
Crosman pellets fall in the bore. Gamo pellets fit pretty good.
Too bad none of my Gamo's like Gamo pellets. Looking at the quality/consistency of the pellets
I can see why....

My loading port has become HARD to turn. It doesn't align with the bore.
All in all, it is a pain to shoot. I like the Gamo line....all but the CFX that is.

I've owned 3 shadows, a 220, and now a CFX.
If you get a good CFX you will most likely LOVE it.
I got one with a few Quality Control issues.

.22 or .177 you'll get the same Gamo trigger.
It's not a good trigger. Get a replacement or an insert from Rich in Mich.

Other than that take it out and LEARN the rifle.
It will do it's part well, if you can yours.

it's "fiddley" to load and shoot so I wouldn't hunt with it, target and plinking. It's a decent rifle for target and plinking, pick one up used on the classified cheap. My opinion.

i know i'm a little late on this thread but i like the .22, its got a bigger bore so it hits harder and just as accurate as the.177. you can put it on the paper or use it in the field. loading is not a problem for me, when i put rich's supertune kit in mine, i went ahead and pulled out the loading block, honed the edge of the loading blocks trough and now all sorts pellets i use just falls right in.
