What scope do you have on it? My son's scope that came on his gammo messed up, so I put a tasco on it.. That tasco lasted all of about 1 month before it rattled the crosshairs loose..

after reading some online info, i found out you have to have a special scope for air rifles that can withstand the vibrations..

If it is a break barrel like the GAMO I'm shooting, it is the reverse recoil that kills a regular rifle scope.
I went with a UTG 3-9 x 40mm air gun specific scope after doing some research.
I also threw away the mounting rail that came with the airgun and mounted directly to the receiver's dovetail.
