I can't speak for the 1250, I've never owned or shot one. The S1k, I do have, and have had for almost 3 years with no problems (knock on wood). It sounds as if the three screws (that hold the action in the stock) had come loose. They have to be checked periodically because of vibration. A dose of blue threadlocker is usually the cure. Not trying to change your mind, just giving you a possible reason for that specific problem.

1St, learn to type. Second, if you are having this many problems, then maybe You are doing something wrong. These are not common problems with the Gamo line. I have never had a problem with any of my Gamo's(1250,220,cfx). With many rounds through each. I think they are a great value for thier performance! I am not saying you didn't have problems but breaking things like you did is unusual! Like the others said, There is some usual maintenace that needs to be done as with any firearm or air rifle.

it sounds like you are having too many different problems to be Gamos fault. Sounds like owner bad maintance to me.
the stock breaking could be the result of a barrel slam(this is typical of what happens to springers when you let the barrel gwt away from you) the S1k again sounds like loose screws on the stock again faulty owner maintence. Now as to the CFX did you try to open the lever befour you cocked the gun? if so therez your problem right there the loading port will not open until the gun is cocked and if you try to force it you WILL break something. Also none of these problems are unique to gamo made rifles(ok maybe the loading lever on the CFX) and can happen to any make or model of springer if not maintained properly. Sounds like Gamo is not at fault here but someone else. funny thing? I bet its all still covered by their lifetime warrenty.

Eight years ago bought a Gamo 440 in .177. It got me started in Adult Airguns. Still going strong. billinmd

So Incredible to be true without pictures of damage to all of these fine air guns.

I'm not saying someone can't have a problem with a Gamo but I've thoroughly disassembled mine and found the quality to be quite good and I have detailed photographs readily available to prove it.
