Comments: The Gamo Auto 45, a replica of the Glock 30, is an average performance BB gun that requires the use of lead BBs due to its rifled barrel. If the trigger is partly pulled back, the BB in the breech will run down the barrel. Accuracy is pretty poor compared to other BB guns in this price range. The body of the gun is plastic and the "slide" is metal. The Auto 45 can also fire lead pellets in single-shot mode. However, only lead BBs were used for performance testing.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/08/06 at a temperature of 84 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Gamo Round Ball BBs (8.0 gr). The highest velocity measured was 406 fps, the lowest was 384 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 399 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.26".

Loading BBs: The barrel assembly flips up for loading by pushing on the latch release located on the upper left side of the barrel. Lead pellets can be loaded in the breech and fired in single-shot mode. However, before shooting pellets, the BB magazine must be emptied.
