My Big Cat turned into a *_*_*_*_*_* Cat
« on: May 21, 2010, 12:25:33 AM »
I thought that my Big Cat was loosing power and confirmed it this morning.  The chrony averaged less than 500 fps.  The rifle is still under warantee (Jul 9, 2009), however I installed a GRTIII trigger.  Would this void the warrantee?

I like the rifle and may send it out to a tuner on this forum.

Any suggestions before I send it out to Gamo or a tuner.

This is a perfect oppertunity! If you search big cat must do's it has all that I did to mine. Man they can be some sweet shooters. If you send it back to gamo they might send u one with a plastic trigger which is bad. I'd either tune it at home or send it to a pro. And change out the stock scope. Gamo scopes blow goats.

I'd keep it and fix it.

Not sure on the warranty thing? But if you send it back they will likely send you a different gun back OR worse even would be the new type one than doesnt take a GRT 111 trigger!!. If you like the gun and it shoots well, I would definately keep it and Tune it. IMO you will have a better than new gun that way:)

I own Gamos, but I'd go Tuner before Gamo.  My 2c.

Keep it and have it tuned or do it yourself.    I have done several tunes ( on Gamos)  and if I can do it I am sure you can to.    Also, if you have any problems doing the tune the members here will help get you through it.   Just ask the questions.

Tune it and it's better - send it back to Gamo and it might not be as good as what you bought !

If you do decide to send it back, just reinstall the factory trigger. If you send it with the GRT in it, you won't get it back.

Like these guy's say,just tune it & you will be more than happy with it ( remember plastic trigger,you don't want to lose CDT's great trigger),after my tune it now shoot's one ragged hole 10 shot group's,well worth the money & time!!!

I would remove the gold trigger, put all the pieces in a bag from the old one and tell em it just fell out when it quit shooting!
