Gamo's Varmint Hunter combines all-weather durability, maximum performance and precision optics, yielding a powerful air rifle capable of taking down even the wiliest critters, no matter the conditions. Capable and versatile, this top-shelf .177-caliber air gun boasts an impressive 1,200 ft/sec muzzle velocity - perfect for small game hunting, targets and pest control, during the day or night. It's easy to wield - even for extended shooting sessions -, with a lightweight all-weather synthetic stock, molded left- and right-side cheek pieces, ventilated rubber recoil pad, and a no-slip embossed diamond pattern on the grip and forearm. The 18" barrel is fluted, polymer jacketed steel, and the break barrel cocking system features an automatic safety. There's also a manual safety, as well as a second stage adjustable trigger. Carefully hone in on your target with the included 4x32 scope, which features a precision laser sight, rings and even a flashlight. Far quieter than centerfire rifles and even rimfire handguns, the Varmint Hunter lets you dispatch yard-wrecking armadillos and other nocturnal and crepuscular pests without disturbing sleeping neighbors or violating noise restrictions. It's also just plain fun to shoot! Best of all, Gamo's .177 Varmint Hunter Air Rifle represents an incredible value. It's effective, yet affordable, in both the short- and long-term, with a surprisingly low up-front cost and ammunition that's far less costly than rimfire or centerfire cartridges. Simply put, it offers more fun and eliminates more pests, all for less dough! Compatible with any .177 caliber pellet. Weighs 7 1/8 lbs; 43" long overall.
