This gun means business!

mills review Gamo Silent Cat Air Rifle

Gamo Silent Cat Air Rifle

I've had this pellet gun for about five weeks and I have really enjoyed it. I'm not a regular shooter or gun person. I made this purchase to take care of squirrels that cause my two dachshunds and my neighbors dogs to bark incessantly. The squirrels have devoured my apricots, peaches, and pears. I am concerned they could get into my attic and really cause problems.

Once I got the scope sighted in I was amazed at the gun's accuracy. I don't expect pellets to be particularly accurate but at about 20 or 30 yards and hand held I can hit within about half an inch of my target consistently. The trigger has a firm pull and maintaining my target in the cross-hairs of the scope is at times challenging.

The rifle is far from silent especially when shooting supersonic pellets. It sounds more like a 22 long rifle. The subsonic pellets are noticeably quieter.

This gun is quite powerful. It is not a toy. Shooters should always be aware of what may be behind your target. I suspect the pellets have quite a range and could injure someone at considerable distance

  1. I know that suppressors are illegal in Australia, I just want know if they are on air rifles as well. Like can you buy a gun like the gamo silent cat in australia?

  2. The screws that tighten the barrel to the stock got stripped. Its a Gamo Whisper Silent Cat. I already tried the website but they dont have replacement screws

    Really want to buy a powerful rifle to hunt. not ready for a real rifle. But i was just wondering if this kind of gun would work on large animals like a deer. I mostly want to use for small animals.

  4. i am about to buy the gamo silent cat and i wanted to know if the 4x32 scope already included with it is good enough for shooting birds, squirels, and little pests like rats. i plan on shooting the rodents about as far as a regular .22 would and the farthest i would probably shoot would be about as long as a football field. please answer asap because i am probably going to order tonight depending on ur answers. thanks!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I rusted the outside of my Gamo Silent Cat .22 when i left it outside last night. I was cleaning a squirrel and i just forgot it in the grass. Now its got rust right underneath the scope.

  6. I need a nice silent rifle that is reliable for years to come for small game. My hunting space is limited so I would like it to be as silent as possible in regards to the neighbors. Preferably a wood stock with .177 or .22 calibre, i am fine with either. I have had a Gamo Silent Cat .177 for 2 years now and I can feel it is wearing out. When I shoot a dove or a rabbit I can see it hit the animal but it is not as effective as it was a year earlier. It is becoming weaker and my shots are not as reliable. I would like an air rifle that will give me quality in my shot patterns, and strength. Thanks for the help guys.
