I'd have to see if before I believe a word Gamo says, but seems cool.
Like how well does it feed, how well and deep does it seat the pellet, does it bend skirts during all this etc?
Seems to me it would be almost impossible to do that thinner skirted pellets, but maybe?

If the feed mechanism is similar to the older Gamo Expomatic, feeding shouldn't be a problem with it. My Expo rarely misfeeds or deforms pellets (wadcutters only), and is a pleasure to shoot...

Nope, it's a rotary mechanism.

I'm a little late in finding out about this one but it does appear that those who reviewed it have found it to be a lot of fun (if it happens to be one that QC actually looked at before sending out).

I've taken a look and it doesn't seem to be available in Canada nor could I find any info on when it might show up here.

Just wondering if anyone has come across retailer details and availability that I might have missed?

Kind of curious...

Probably won't be able to get it here because of the supressor built in. Same as the Umarex gauntlet.

That's unfortunate but makes complete sense.

Thanks for the insight.

No problem, disappointing for sure. I suppose or I've heard some 495fps pellet guns with built in supressors have been allowed in, but I may be mistaken on that. I guess if they came out with a 495fps version for Canada we may still get one eventually. [emoji846]

"Expert" here grabbed the gun by the scope...
That was more painful to watch than him loading up 10 pellets with his little, stubby fingers.

I’m resting my back against a tree. Notice I am using the scope to steady the pistol. This puts no strain on the scope, and allows the pistol to be held about as steady as a rifle.

I learned how to hold a scoped pistol this way back when I had a Crosman Mark I that had been modified by Mac-1. It had a 12-inch barrel and a 3.5-ounce CO2 bottle hanging below the grip and holding the scope was the only way to hold the pistol steady.
