2. OMMO 3-9X40 Red Green Illuminated Riflescope

OMMO is another great budget offering for hunters. It’s astonishing to see scopes this cheap offering aluminum housing and glass lenses.

The best part is, it’s not some plastic toy scope that will break from a single hit of the rifles. This is a fully aluminum scope with internal nitrogen purging. That makes it fogproof and waterproof. On top of that, it’s shockproof as well.

The lens here is made out of glass. The coating is great. It’s vibrant and bright. While there is slight distortion at the maximum magnification, it’s acceptable. It’s not a 400$ scope after all. It does offer humongous 9x magnification. That’s something!

4. OTW Scope 3-9X56 Red &Green Illuminated Optics Scope

Packing up to 9x magnification with a massive 56mm objective lens. OTW here has to offer a lot of things. A great part of this scope is the build quality. Instead of going the plastic route, OTW chose to stick with aluminum.

The aluminum used here is pretty stiff and high-quality. It’s not on par with a 300$ scope per se. But it’s very well comparable to 100$ ones. Inside of the scope is nitrogen purged as well. Making it fogproof. The outside is durable enough to withstand recoil shocks.

If you pair it with a Gamo Silent Cat, you will have a great time. there are two colored reticles present in this scope. Red and green. Bright and gives good clarity during low light. Paired with coated lenses, have to admit it can give a tough battle to many expensive scopes.

No, they are better.

5. Hammers 3-9x32AO Air Rifle Scope with One-Piece Mount

Made out of high-quality aluminum, Hammers did a good job building this scope. there are no visual defects on the housing. Anodization is on point as well. The inside of the scope has purging as well. That makes the scope fogproof—a perfect companion to hunt during the winter.

The lenses of the scopes are coated as well. While they are not fully multi-coated, they are decently coated for brighter image processing. 32mm objective lens gathers more than enough sunlight. It’s not the best choice for low light, but it’s doable.

Gamo Silent Cat is a perfect pairing with this scope. I would go as far as to say this is one of the if not the best scopes for Gamo Silent Cat. It’s that good of a match. 9x magnification is enough to give you a competitive edge over your competition. It’s enough to land you some legal hunts.

Gamo Silent Cat Scopes – Things to Consider!

We have considered a couple of things before selecting a scope for the Gamo. You should keep those things in mind as well.

Build Quality

We all know air rifles can destroy a regular riflescope. Mainly due to the harsh and thrashy recoil. But if you choose a scope that is made to withstand harsh recoils, then they can be a good pair for Gamo. That’s why, having a scope with good build quality is mandatory.


Gamo Silent Cat is a fairly lightweight gun. It’s a bit back-heavy. If you add a scope that is back-heavy as well, then it will be a mismatch and chaos. Choose a scope with good weight distribution and preferably low weight.

Lens Quality

Silent Cat is not the most powerful rifle. It can shoot at 1200FPS. That’s good and all, but it’s not enough for long-range. That’s why, a scope with a good quality lens that performs well in the short-range territory, will be a heavenly match for Silent Cat.


Riflescopes can work as air rifle scopes. But unless you need to, you shouldn’t. That’s why we mentioned some budget riflescopes that won’t break your bank and will still give you a good performance with the silent cat.

That’s all for today, I hope to see you again. Till next time.
