Gamo Silent Cat

If you have been hoping to get your hands on one of the most accurate pellet guns on the planet without ever threatening to break your bank account or blow up your budget along the way, you want to pay close attention to everything that the Gamo Silent Cat brings to the table.

Easily one of the most exciting pellet gun platforms to be introduced to the market in quite a while, this pellet gun is exceedingly accurate, produces a fantastic muzzle velocity, and remains lightweight enough to pack along for extended trips without any headache or hassle.

Initial Impressions

At first blush you are going to notice the very characteristic Gamo design elements all across this firearm, and that’s definitely not in an accident.

Taking advantage of only the highest and materials, you’re going to find this pellet gun to be rock solid in the hand but still ridiculously lightweight. The “silencer” attached to this pellet gun is absolutely fantastic, but if you are using PBA ammunition it isn’t going to muffle the shot all that much.

The suppressor doesn’t fact protect the muzzle of the barrel, however, and its extension provides an extra bit of accuracy that might not have existed otherwise.

Standout Feature

Speaking of accuracy, this entire pellet gun is predicated on being one of (if not THE) most accurate pellet guns you’re going to come across today without any tinkering or gunsmithing on your part.

Straight stock, this is capable of incredibly tight groupings which shouldn’t be all that surprising considering the fact that it’s putting out a muzzle velocity close to 1025 ft./s. As mentioned above, if you are rolling PBA ammunition you’ll be able to crank up the muzzle velocity even further (close to 1300 ft./s, even) – which is only going to help your long-range accuracy improve.

Pros

  • The skeleton stock is fantastically designed, perfectly ergonomic, and offers a tremendously stable platform to fire from in multiple positions
  • The included scope is pretty solid and it’s nice to see quality optics being offered as a bundle package from Gamo again
  • The muzzle velocity is off the charts and it gets even better with specialty ammunition

Cons

  • Even though the included optics are all right for those plinking around in the backyard, competitive shooters or those looking to do some hunting with this pellet rifle will want to upgrade
  • When using “hot” ammunition you’re going to hear a loud report than must be would expect with a suppressor at the end of the barrel
  • The trigger could use a little bit of fine tuning to decrease hard pull weight so that it’s a more effortless mechanism

Final Verdict

At the end of the day, there’s a lot to like in regards to the Gamo Silent Cat and not much to disagree with. We think you are going to love it!
