2. OMMO 3-9X40 Red Green Illuminated Riflescope

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 absolutely mandatory.

Weight

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 preferable 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 good quality lens that performs well in the short-range territory, will be a heavenly match for Silent Cat.


Summary

Riflescopes can work as air rifles scope. But unless you really 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.
