We’ll be telling you all about the most popular Air Rifles by the infamous manufacturer Gamo. Owning an air rifle has a lot of benefits in the modern-day and a quality air rifle will definitely shine in your collection. They produce far less sound than the regular firearms, so you can carry on with your recreational target shooting or go hunting without causing much disturbance in the locality.
During hunting, the scarcity of sound will prevent you from scaring away the game. But this isn’t the only reason it’s a desirable gun, with its easy-to-learn and use mechanism and absent recoil action, you can be any height or age and still manage to bag safe and precise shots. Available in a wide range with variable characteristics, the air rifles are exceptionally good for hunting games of almost all sizes up to a good fifty yards distance. These are mostly legal to own, affordable guns with the ammunition available in abundance in stores and online. Because of their safety, accuracy, and lack of hard and fast regulations, people are starting to choose them over other firearms.
Gamo is not a new name in the air gun market. In fact, this Spanish company has been manufacturing Air Rifles since 1961, which is nearly six decades of excellence. And that’s not all, the company was initially founded in 1880 and produced ammunition for several decades before they ventured into the air gun business. In the modern-day, they’re producing high-quality air pistols, rifles, ammunition, and optics that are sold around ninety countries worldwide. They lack competitors in innovation and quality and the evidence is their several patented products. Gamo also takes pride in their eco-friendly manufacturing of air guns, they’re also known as the green manufacturers.
Primarily the air rifles are used for hunting small game, pest control, and target practice but recently there’s been a spike in people’s interest in using them for self-defense purposes too. While choosing the right air gun you need to keep in mind the reason you want to use it and what kind of performance you desire from it.
The subject matter of our today’s video will center around our three favorite air gun models by Gamo. Keeping in mind the extensive audience, we’ve made a point of including not just the ones best in quality but also the ones best for your pocket. Therefore the first one on our list the budget-friendly yet absolutely efficient.
The Varmint Air Rifle is one of Gamo’s most pocket-friendly products. If you don’t feel like spending more than $100 on an air rifle, this is the one for you. With its classic build, the Varmint rifle has a caliber of .177 It utilizes a single cock mechanism with its spring-piston emanating over 1200 fps (feet per second) energy. Its break barrel design and all-weather stock make it easy to use for both left and right-handed people. This model also comes with a scope of 4x32mm and mounts. Hence it’s easier to alter the elevation and windage. Although the scope it ships with isn’t a favorite among users and reviewers have described the absence of dialed sights so the buyer will have to spend some time sighting.
The Varmint Air Rifle is an ideal choice because of its long list of exceptional features. It has impeccable stability due to the fluted metal barrel with a polymer jacket. Surprisingly the trigger is a two-stage adjustable trigger which is probably even better than the more expensive ones on this list and in Gamo’s catalog. And just like any other Gamo rifle, it comes with an established reliability promised by its one-year warranty. This affordable rifle is a total steal, even if you can afford the pricier ones, with its list of advantages anyone would want to give it a shot.
If money isn’t a problem, the Whisper Fusion Air Rifle is by far the best one produced by Gamo and maybe by all air gun manufacturers. This rifle has a .177 caliber chamber. Specially designed for aiding in small game hunting this rifle is extremely light at only eight pounds and forty-three inches long. And that’s not all because some of you may want a greater caliber and Gamo took care of it because the same model is available for purchase in the .22 Calibre barrel.
The Gamo Whisper Fusion Rifle exceeds all expectations when it delivers around 1400 fps velocity which makes it stand out amongst all others which deliver a maximum of 1000 fps. Its two-stage adjustable trigger has a minimal pull. The break barrel action of the rifle eradicates the need for consecutive pumps. It has a non-slip textured grip to prevent slipping even in wet conditions. This rifle is uniquely designed for dampening the sound production and ensuring your hobby isn’t a nuisance to the neighbors. Though this does not mean, it is completely silent but it’s quieter than many guns out there.
This gun has extraordinary ergonomics and is one of the most accurate ones produced by Gamo. From small birds to a medium-sized hog, you can put down all kinds of small game using this air rifle with precision and finesse. Though it may be expensive than others, much more expensive than the Gamo Varmint Air Rifle, but its advanced features and unmatched accuracy and power make it worth every cent spent on it. And if you’re going to spend a big amount on an air rifle you’re going to use to its complete potential for a long while, probably more than a decade.
In the higher price range, Gamo Whisper Silent Cat Air Rifle falls second to the Whisper Fusion Air Rifle and they are both quite similar too. This one is also an ideal pick for hunting game and shooting targets like the previous one. The only major difference between the two Rifles lies in their power with the Whisper Silent Cat rifle having relatively low power. It’s not excessively low-powered though still being able to fire at about 1200fps velocity. This one is .177 caliber and even lighter than the Whisper Fusion rifle at only seven pounds. Hence it should be the absolute choice for hunting on difficult grounds and shooting targets for newbies.
The Whisper Silent has been specially designed as an outdoor rifle with high resistance to adverse weather conditions. Its stock is an all-weather synthetic black stock with an additional ventilated rubber stock pad that reduces the recoil to a minimum. It’s an ergonomically designed stock with a thumb hold which can work for right and left-handed people. This rifle comes with an added 4x32mm scope and scope rings which make its installation easy. The fiber optic front sight and easy-to-adjust rear sight help enhance the accuracy beyond extraordinary. This is one solid air rifle and in less than $200, it’s a steal.
The trigger is two-stage adjustable like the others on our list and, it is however known to have a harder pull, putting this rifle at disadvantage. Although if you look at this rifle from the shooter’s perspective, it will serve you numerous purposes from hunting game to casual plinking, you can do it all and that too with high precision.
Now, these were our top three picks from Gamo’s vast catalog but these aren’t the only ones that stand out. Here we had to honor Gamo’s legacy by discussing the next two Rifles, the first of which is.
This one is sculpted from the best materials in the market. It’s a great option for those starting new. Its greatest advantage is the lightweight and short length, hence it’s very easy, to begin with, and learn shooting. It also stands out because of its quietness as compared to other Gamo rifles. Unlike the top three of this list, the 600054 Urban rifle is .22 Calibre with a 10 shot magazine and an ergonomically designed thumbhole synthetic stock. Its barrel is forged with a high-precision hammer and also features a built-in pressure gauge and quick fill port. Its amazing bolt action and custom action trigger render it untroublesome while propelling the pellets with an 800 fps velocity. The only drawback of this one is its higher price which even if you can afford at one time, won’t be the end because its magazines are equally expensive.
This rifle has made the list mostly because of its affordability but the features are also not worth ignoring. Its ten-shot break barrel allows you to shoot ten times before you have to think about reloading and these ten shots won’t be coming slowly as it propels the pellet at an unimaginable velocity of around 1300fps with PBA platinum. Utilizing the unique inert gas technology this one gives you great value for your money. And like Gamo’s other top models it also features a two-stage adjustable yet more advanced custom action trigger. Its stand-out feature is the Whisper maxim with two noise dampening chambers making it the quietest of the lot.
The Gamo swarm has one magazine and its muzzle brake design has been revised to enhance and optimize performance. Its high velocity is the result of the IGT piston and you can adjust the first and second stage of the trigger according to your liking. Its recoil reducing rail and ambidextrous, ergonomically designed all-weather stock renders it durable and despite the dependable specs, this one comes with a three-year warranty from Gamo. Some reviewers have reported that its ten-shot system might occasionally fail you but overall this is one air rifle you should invest in.
These may be Gamo’s top air rifles in our opinion but they are absolutely not the only ones. We recommend you explore their catalogs for the one that suits your requirements best. However before you buy one make sure you’re satisfied with the precision, power, range, and durability for air guns aren’t something you’ll be buying regularly so you need to be sure that the one you choose will perform to your liking. It’s also necessary to consider the safety features and ammunition demands, since it’s not very profitable if your pellets are costing you an arm and a leg every time you run out.
Gamo is our favorite manufacturer because they never compromise on the quality but also provide affordable air guns and their signature silent models are great for urban dwellers. You might also want to consider buying some accessories to increase the accuracy in case you’re a target shooter and in this regard, Gamo is the best choice as most of its Rifles come with sights and scopes that are weatherproof and easy to adjust.
