The Gamo Varmint Air Rifle shoots a .177 PBA Platinum alloy pellet at 1250 fps, making it an ideal pellet gun for hunting small game , pest control, and target practice. A 4x32mm scope allows you to pick-off small, hard-to-see targets. Combined with its performance features, the Varmint comes with an all weather molded synthetic stock with non-slip texturing on the pistol grip and forearm. A Monte Carlo cheek pad aligns your eye with the scope sight and a rubber recoil pad keeps the butt stock firmly planted on the shoulder. The Gamo Varmint Air Rifle functions with a break barrel, spring-powered cocking system, and has an automatic manual safety.
