Comments: The Gamo PT-90 is a very accurate replica of the H&K USP. It fits the hand well, but has a very heavy DA and SA action (even the SA action is nearly 10 lb). This makes it difficult to shoot groups as tight as the PT-80 will produce even though the two guns use the same valving and barrel. Gamo discontinued importation of the PT-90 in 2006 after only four years of production. Gamo added the PT-90 back into their imported product mix in late 2007 and then dropped it again in late 2008 or early 2009. The PT-90 remains available in Europe but is no longer imported to the USA.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/01/06 at a temperature of 84 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Crosman Premier Super Match pellets (7.9 gr). The highest velocity measured was 369 fps, the lowest was 336 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 348 fps). A five shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.07".

Loading Pellets: Pressing down on the slide release lever causes the front part of the "slide" to swing up, exposing the loading mechanism. The PT-90 uses the same 8-shot magazines as the PT-80.

 
Loading CO2: Gamo did a good job of designing the cylinder piercing system so that the cylinder tightening screw does not show. This give the gun a clean profile and more realistic appearance.
