    Just wondering does anyone have any additional info on the new Gamo coyote PCP air rifles? They seem ok and all but Gamo has made some things that were good, but also some that weren’t. They seem almost comparable to a Benjamin marauder. What are your thoughts?

    The Gamo stand had a synthetic version of the gun at IWA this year.  But, it was only for ‘decoration’.  :)  I never got to play around with it.

    I know this stuff can get hard to keep track of, but… Just looking at the pict Ted posted, I am gonna guess that this action is largely based on the same parts as the BSA Scorpion – although i am going to also guess that it has a different (and unfortunately not as good) trigger unit. Gamo had the “Dynomax” PCP that was every bit as good as the much more expensive Scorpion – as they were identical actions. A lot will depend on the price point they wind up offering it at. I think they will wind up being quite acceptable, although – the trigger will most likely hinder them a BUNCH 🙁

In your data tabulation, comparing the Gamo vs. Marauder, don’t you have the noise level bass ackwards?  Marauders have a well designed noise moderator while the Coyote only has an air stripper.  My Mrod was one of the most silent air rifles that I’ve shot.  Also, accuracy testing at 10 yards doesn’t prove much.  Minimum should be 25, IMO.  Otherwise, great review.

    I did not make the review, but I noticed that as well.  I think you are correct.  They have a typo I think.  I agree also with the accuracy testing, unless it is a low powered springer or co2 gun, what is the point of 10 yard groups…

True, however since the Gamo uses a BSA barrel, it can take any 1/2×20 moderator.   BSA barrels are outstanding when it comes to accuracy so this gun should do very well much further out.   One factor where the Marauder leads is in support from the manufacturer and on forums.  Gamo USA doesn’t know PCP’s very well.  The Marauder has a good ground swell around it.  There are a number of us BSA fans out there.  They are very easy to work on if you have even the slightest mechanical skill.

    I thought the Coyote was just a rebranded BSA Buccaneer

    The Gamo Coyote .22 is an awesome rifle. Bought mine from Sandwell Field Sports ‘Tony Wall’ WestBromwich. One of the best gun shops around. There have been chinese versions that were not so good but this is a spanish made rifle. Once my optics were sighted went to a 25yard range in the SFS loft and with all 10 pellets hit the spinners spot on. So I was amazed with its accuracy.

    I absolutely love my .177 Gamo Coyote and use it for field target. It’s incredibly accurate. I have the second gen that comes with the whisper silencer form the factory and its just as quiet as .177 marauder if not more. Mechanical noise is certainly less. Don’t get me wrong I love my .25 marauder but for field target I chose the coyote and got rid of the .177 marauder due to accuracy and shots per fill plus its super consistent shot to shot without aftermarket accessories (regulator) and expense. Now to the trigger. It was less than awesome and I used it in factory setup for the pyramyd air cup last year and did fine but after competition I began tweaking it to my wants. Now its as nice as any trigger on any gun I own. Can’t wait to show the guys that fired it last year at the cup to try it this year to see how well it turned out. Set at exactly 20 fpe, I get 50 shots before poi begins to shift. I enjoy the accuracy of the coyote so much I bought a .22 BSA for the squirrels. They hate it! Thinking seriously about getting a coyote .25 just to see if all calibers are created equal from BSA. I’m sure I wont be disappointed. If you have the opportunity to buy one used or on sale don’t hesitate and if you’re thinking of buying one new, its worth $500 for sure. If something happened to mine I would order another to replace it without looking at other options. I’m not an expert in accuracy but I’m pretty sure when all of your shots go through the same hole, its good. I think you’re getting an awesome value with the BSA action and barrel with Gamo branding at lower prices. Now after all this talk its time to shoot mine!
