Always use appropriate ear and eye protection and make sure your range has a secure and reliable backstop. Do NOT use target closer than 25 yards and ensure pellets can not go into anyone else's land

I researched whether to get this device, and as there was so few reviews on Amazon.co.uk, had a look at the reviews on Amazon.com, and on YouTube. I decided not to purchase it, and went for the SMK Magnetic Knockdown Pellet Trap. The concerns I had with the Gamon unit are:

- It is very small, about half the size of the SMK unit (see YouTube)
- The flat panel on the front is not ideal (rebounds/richochets)
- The internal back panel slopes upwards which is not ideal (rebound/richochets)
- There are adverse comments about the plastic washers coming off (these hold the main bar)

On the plus side, the targets do appear to be made from substantially thick metal.

Usually fire at practice targets, but this is much more fun than shooting paper, much more satisfying when you have a goal to achieve (getting all swinging targets to stay up)

HASH(0x9867a5e8) out of 5 stars Poorly constructed 2 Feb. 2010
By Larry45 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a well-designed little trap, and would be great fun if it was well-built. But it's not. The target plate mechanism is held in place by metal rods that extend across the trap through holes in the side. These rods should be threaded on both ends and held in place by nuts. Instead, they are "secured" by cheap little plastic washers. These washers come off easily and cannot be re-used. And when one comes off, that end of the rod falls down into the trap rendering it useless. I have had two of these traps - the first arrived with three washers off the rod ends, and the rods and target plates lying in a pile in the bottom of the trap. The replacement trap arrived oksy, but after a few shots from a low-powered airgun two of the washers came off, causing those rods to fall down inside the trap. Very frustrating. Simply threading both ends of those metal rods and securing them with nuts would make this a really great and durable target trap. As it is, the thing is a piece of junk.

HASH(0x98a88ad4) out of 5 stars Excellent product and fun to use. 14 Feb. 2007
By G. Tobin - Published on Amazon.com
The Rocker Pellet Trap is constructed well and is fun/easy to use. I highly recommend the product...especially for indoor target shooting.

Here are my experiences:

1) I follow the instructions and only shoot lead pellets at the recommended velocities.

2) On occassion I have noticed that a pellet escapes the trap and lands about 2-3 feet in front of the trap. I view this as acceptable because I am about 12-15 feet away and always were safety glasses.

3) The Rocker Pellet Trap provides good reliable action.

4) My kids like it better than paper targets.

HASH(0x98a88714) out of 5 stars Great Product, One Design Flaw I Have Identified 29 Mar. 2011
By wjamyers - Published on Amazon.com

I've had one of these for going on 7 years.

Very early on, internal ricocheting shattered the white plastic spacers on the rods inside that support and catch the targets. Once that happened the target stopped working since the targets would no longer reliably catch on their hooks. I got some plain old drinking straws from McDonalds, cut them to the desired length, slit them down the side and just replaced the old broken pieces of plastic with the straws wrapped around the rods. The straw's elastic property prevents them from shattering and keeps them in place. The hard plastic used for the spacers is a design flaw, IMO, but is easily remedied.

It's been more than 5 years since I did that modification. I've left this thing out in the back yard for months on end. It got a little rusty in places but it still functions perfectly.

It's an excellent training tool, I use a 3' by 2' plywood backstop and plink in my basement to my heart's content. It has really helped my consistency, even at 7 feet these small targets present a challenge.

I plan to buy a second one along with a second Crosman 3576 (a surprisingly accurate little shooter) so I can race with my friends or not have to hand the pistol back and forth while shooting with my wife.

I hope I get as lucky with my second Gamo Rocker as I did with my first.

HASH(0x9867abdc) out of 5 stars Fun "reactive" pellet trap! 3 Aug. 2010
By Sail Away - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sometimes I want to shoot things other than paper targets. Tin cans are fun, but it's always nice to have a variety of targets. This trap combines several nice & fun features.

It is "reactive". So, when you hit one of the circle targets, that circle swings up into the top of the trap and stays hidden. Assuming, you hit all 4 circle targets, all 4 will stay up and hidden away. In order to lower them for another round of shooting, you simply shoot the center square target - you don't have to move out of your shooting position! If you hit the square, it releases the 4 circle targets, which then fall back down into position and are ready for another round of shooting!

The circle targets are two sizes, so you can challenge yourself on a bigger and smaller size target.

The trap is pretty small. The photo on the Amazon page makes it difficult to tell what size it is. But, for pellet shooting, it's fine. Make sure you heed the instructions about safe shooting distance. Since this is a metal trap, there is ample chance for a ricochet or bounce back under certain conditions. Read the instructions carefully for safety.

I have only used mine for about 10 shots so far, so I cannot yet comment on durability. So far, it works as advertised and is a lot of fun! It is very rewarding to hear that metal "clang" when you strike the target!

The trap does have a few open areas on the side, so lead shavings from used pellets can/will escape when you move the trap around. This could be a problem if used in areas with children, pets, etc. (ie, lead poisioning). Just be careful to clean up if that is a concern where you shoot. Maybe these holes are there by design, but I take points off for that because it can create a mess.

I recommend it overall. I will edit my review after I have had a chance to put more rounds into this trap, but my initial opinion is that it's a very good product! It provides "reactive" targets, while trapping most, if not all, of your pellets.

HASH(0x985475c4) out of 5 stars Somewhat poorly constructed but works well 3 Jan. 2012
By PixelBrat - Published on Amazon.com

UPDATE: After purchasing the Gamo and being disappointed in the small size I purchased the Magnetic Pellet Trap. It is much bigger with much bigger targets. I'm much happier with it than I am the Gamo. (See size comparison photo)

Original Review:
Like some others mentioned, my trap arrived with one of the odd washer-type connectors missing. (See photo) This caused one of the rods to disconnect and was sitting in the bottom of the trap. I reassembled the rod/spring mechanism and replaced the washer that was found loose in the box. It works now but Gamo should use a more durable method to keep the rods in place. The trap is also smaller than I expected. I would have liked for it to be a bit bigger. It does work well and I'm pretty happy with the purchase but I do have some concerns for it's longevity given the strange washers that hold the rods in place.
