The Cometa 220 Compact – A slick little sporter

By Mark Camoccio.

SPRING piston airguns still account for a large percentage of overall sales, and part of the attraction has to be the self-contained nature of the power source. No need for a pump, and no need for any air bottles, with all the paraphernalia and concern about safe storage that that entails.

Indeed, just being able to grab and go, still holds huge appeal. Switch to the time-honoured break-barrel configuration, and we are talking of arguably the most user-friendly airgun type of all.


Cometa airguns are manufactured in Spain and are renowned for their traditional output. On test here is the latest version of the 220, and it’s a scaled down sporter, aimed at the novice shooter. It comes complete with a moderator, and offers a two-stage adjustable trigger, hardwood sporter stock, open sights, and an automatic safety catch.
