Gamo Compact Target Pistol needs a two obligatory lubrication to work properly:

1. Lubrication of air cylinder through the hole of the top of it after 250 shots with the pistol. Use silicone-based lube like Gamo Air Gun Oil.

2. Lubrication of the air valve. Use silicone-based lube (I use gun grease, but this is not recommended).

Gamo Compact has many flaws in the design which makes it not suitable for competitive use as 10m air target pistol. It is not as accurate as claimed by Gamo and can not achieve 0.20 "groups. If you are interested in its real accuracy see this. ... 825&type=3

Very often I read in the forums things like: "My Compact losing air" or "losing pressure". This is another defect in the construction of the Compact and the mod. PR-45. When air valve become dry its plastic bushing at the lower end of the spring BLOCKS - Valve remains in a bent position ("ENDLESS UNCOCKED MODE" - as I call it) and the gun can not be loaded. Most people think that this is an irreparable defect and return the pistol to Gamo. The solution is simple - this valve should be lubricated regularly as I have shown in the video. The bad thing is that the liquid lubricant is quickly blown by the air - and you have to repeat the procedure often if you shoot often. As I said - I use gun grease, but this is not very good idea - the pistol throw of grease balls in the barrel at the beginning.

Gamo Compact is introductory air gun for 10m target shooting. If you want to deal more seriously with sport shooting buy yourself IZH-46M.
