Gamo Releases “Big Cat” 1250 Air Rifle

    I swear Gamo is like Mercedes, BMW, and Audi following the “One Sausage, Many Lengths” product philosophy. Latest to the sausage fest is the “Big Cat” 1250 DX break-action air rifle. I’m sorry, but I utterly dislike the name. .177 caliber can hardly be called “Big Cat” when its more like a tamed pussy cat. While fast for a break-action, I could hardly see this taking down a tiger.

    My thoughts aside, the rifle has the standard Gamo specifications. The kitty includes the S.A.T. (smooth action trigger), S.W.A. (shockwave absorber recoil pad), and includes a 4x optic. MSRP is pegged at a reasonable $204.95.
