The Gamo PT-80 has a blade and ramp style sight on the front and an adjustable rear sight for wndage.  Gamo has added white dots to the sights front and rear.  This helps to see the sights easier and faster.

The safety kmob is located on the left side of the gun near the hammer. If the gun is cocked in single action, the hammer can be used to de-cock the gun by holding the hammer, pulling the trigger and slowly letting the hammer un-cock. And Just above the trigger on the left side is the frame release catch that unlocks and locks the break barrel.

The PT-80 is powered by a single 12 gram CO2 cartridge stored in the hand grip.  Access to the CO2 chamber is found under the left grip panel. The panel is removed by pulling on the bottom of it.

To Reinserting the grip panel requires you to slip the two tabs at the top of the panel into the tab holes on the gun grip before you snap the clips on the bottom of the panel down. This attachment method allows for a solidly fastened grip panel that does not slide around or feel untight.
