GAMO CFX UNDERLEVER SYNTHETIC 1000FPS .177 AIR RIFLE

l

THE FIRST THING that draws attention to the Gamo CFX is its rather unique tubular underlever cocking lever, together with a silver-coloured rotating breech plug. The design has been common in spring-piston air rifles since the appearance of the powerful and solidly- built Lincoln-Jeffries design in the early 1900s.

The CFX offers the advantage of a fixed barrel. Controversy has raged for years over the supposed advantages of having a rigid barrel over a barrel- cocking gun. Some airgun experts insist that a fixed- barrel gun is inherently more accurate than a barrel cocker in the same class. They argue that minute discrepencies exist in barrel lock-up from shot to shot in the barrel-cocker which obviously can’t exist in a fixed-barrel gun. I’m not going to buy into that argument, but I can tell you that the .177-calibre Gamo CFX on test was capable of fine accuracy with a variety of match and sporting pellets.

With their major focus on sporting air rifles, Gamo has always had an enviable reputation for making high quality, well-priced spring-piston air rifles. The CFX is no exception. It is cocked by means of a stout lever located below the barrel and action that must be pulled downward in order to retract the mainspring/piston assembly. Gamo’s underlever has a wedge-shaped locking device which fits the cutaway underside of the muffler 50mm behind the muzzle.
To release the lever for cocking, it is only necessary to pull back on a spring-loaded knurled button, pull the

lever down to cock the gun and then return the lever to its resting position. The spring catch re-engages and locks automatically as it is clicked into place. It’s a very smooth-working arrangement.

Cocking the CFX doesn’t require the kind of Herculean effort that some of the more powerful barrel-cockers do. The underlever at 546mm, is certainly long enough to make cocking quite manageable by the average teenager. After the rifle has been cocked and the lever returned to battery, the safety is engaged, and the breech plug rotated to the left. This reveals a dished surface with a groove which aligns with the chamber. The pellet is dropped into this groove and nudged directly into the barrel with a finger, then the plug is rotated back to the right to close it. The plug cannot be opened until the action is cocked, but it can be opened without the safety being ON.

The CFX is no child’s toy; it is a potent magnum air rifle which delivers 1000fps in .177 and 722 fps in .22. By all current standards, the Gamo CFX represents state- of-the-art in the field of magnum spring-piston air rifles. The Gamo carries on the long and distinguished tradition established by the old classic Diana Model 50. The Gamo CFX doesn’t suffer by comparison with that gun, which was introduced by Diana over 50 years ago, and was arguably the most elegant underlever air rifle produced since the end of World War II.

The Gamo, however, features modern design and materials. It has an ambidextrous, anti-shock,

composite stock with a cheekpiece on both sides and a ventilated rubber butt pad. The forend is grooved and the pistol grip has raised dots for asecure grasp.

Another thing I noticed about the CFX is that its heft appears to be a bit heavier than than 3kgs. Shooting it, however, one quickly realizes that it is well balanced and its size is useful in maintaining a steady hold during the firing sequence in such a powerful magnum model. The gun measures 1160mm overall and has a 510mm precision-rifled steel barrel.

The well-designed safety system is non-automatic and should be manually engaged immediately after cocking. The safety lever is a steel tab handily located inside the trigger guard, and can be pushed off with a flick of the trigger finger prior to taking a shot.

The Gamo CFX has a sturdy, fully-adjustable rear sight, micrometer disc adjustable for windage and elevation. The front sight is also strongly built and a square notch at the rear outlined with two flurorescent green dots, aligns with a red fibreoptic foresight. The sight radius spans 475mm but that doesn’t seem to affect accuracy in a negative manner.

Here  is an example of  pushing the envelope! An 80gr Berger .224 projectile at 3650 fps from a 22/6mm Improved .  The target was indoors at 25m and I believe what the comet tail tells us is that the lead core actually melted and exited through  the  hollow point?
