Been using ye olde Gamo alot lately,just at targets.Its a .25 Hunter Realtree at about 6 to 6.5lbs in weight. Its surprising but i really like the weight,its a change from my TX or Prosport. I find it really comfortable to hold ,even on standers. Im beginning to question the need for weight using springers. Think i will try to find a lightweight .177 ,maybe another Gamo to check this out further. I know the quality may be different but i think i have tended to ignore the cheaper lighter rifles but they are certainly worth investigation . Again i know the triggers etc are inferior but it all depends what you get used to. Question..... Is there a quality lightweight springer out there ,maybe one i have overlooked ?
