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.
Measurements were made on
8/08/06 at a temperature of 84 ºF 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". Click the thumbnail below to see a
