I just see this gun as a gimmick and an easy way to dry fire your springer. It wouldn’t be much of a loss on this gun, but that was the big problem with the Theoben. You lose count, dry fire, then damage the gun. As for zebra’s comment on a pivoting barrel, try a well made break barrel like the Weihrauch guns I have and it will change your mind. I have a 30 year old R1 that will still shoot groups to be proud of at 50 yards, no barrel slop. You have to look at Gamo for what it is, big-box store gun that sells off inflated velocity numbers. The only part of the “game” that they have changed is that now everyone that doesn’t know thinks your quality gun is inferior because it shoots at 850 fps.
