Trigger Pull: Not too bad at all. It's fairly long as the first stage of the pull actually rotates the rotary magazine to advance each pellet into place, so there is a noticeable slight resistance and click. Once you get past that first stage, the trigger actually gets even lighter which can be a bit of a surprise at first! Most shots will happen in single action as the blowback pre-cocks the slide for consecutive shots. If the hammer is not cocked then you can shoot in double action mode, but there will be a heavier trigger pull as the hammer will be cocked using the trigger.

Accuracy: Very respectable. I shot 1-2 inch 8 shot groupings from 20 feet out in a semi-rested position with open sights, and the PT-85 seemed to get a tight grouping. I also shot freehand in double action, shooting quickly, and was able to keep the PT-85 well-centered and on target. FPS performance was well under the claimed 450 FPS but this was expected as it was made using lightweight Gamo's PBA® Platinum Pellets and I used much heavier 7 grain RWS lead pellets for my testing. My 8 shot chronograph test yielded an average of 354 FPS for the Gamo PT-85. I got 3 good magazines and then 1 questionable magazine before the CO2 was all used up so don't expect to get a lot of shots per CO2 from each airgun.

Realism: The Gamo PT-85 look like guns and function like guns but are not replicas of any one particular licensed gun. So in terms of being realistic, yes they are very realistic as far as what defines the look and feel of a gun, but no they are not good replicas as they are not intended to be a replica.

Pros:

  • Very well-made with good weight and feel
  • Realistic blowback action
  • Powerful 450 FPS muzzle velocity
  • Tactical accessory rail for laser or flashlight attachments
  • White dot sights are easy to see
  • Rifled steel barrel and recessed barrel for more realism
  • Respectable accuracy and power

Cons:

  • Sights are not adjustable
  • Low shots per CO2

Comments: The Gamo PT-85 is a CO2 pellet pistol with a completely unique design. It features a lightweight polymer frame with a lower weaver/picatinny rail to attach tactical accessories. The rifled steel barrel, smooth single/double action trigger, and white dot sights allow for sharp shooting accuracy. The PT-85 has a powerful blowback system that provides realistic cycling of the slide with every shot for added realism. The unique double sided stick magazine holds two 8rd rotary dials—when one side runs empty, flip it around and keep shooting!

This is a table top and shooting review combined of both the Gamo P-25 and PT-85 Blowback Pellet Shooting CO2 Pistols. I show you around both guns and walk you through their basic operation and handling. I also test the Gamo pellet pistols out with my Chrony Chronograph to see what the real world fps velocity actually are and I also shoot them from 20 feet out on a target to see how accurate the P-25 and PT85 are.

I can say I am really impressed with both of these airguns, they are far from cheap yet have a very low price tag and I was also fairly surprised by their larger than expected size. Both guns are a handful and to top it of they have excellent blowback action.
