Gamo Swarm Maxxim Air Rifle
Benefits of IGT over Spring Piston:
Breakbarrels are among the most popular airguns purchased by shooters who are getting serious about airgunning. They're powerful, accurate and consistent right out of the box - but repeating shots? Forget it! Over the years there have been many failed attempts. The last time anyone made a successful go at it was over 10 years ago with the Diana 300R Air Rifle.
The Swarm “breaks” (see what we did there?) into the market with an elegant solution, never before achieved by airgun manufacturers - a breakbarrel with a 10 shot rotary magazine that slaps a round into the chamber every time you cock the barrel. Did we mention this gun is fast? With a mere 30lb cocking effort you’ll quickly find the ability to fire repeating shots without a single shot reload can be pretty addicting! You’ll wonder how you ever managed to keep sane loading one pellet at a time!
The Swarm Maxxim maintains a consistent velocity of 1300 fps in .177 and 975 fps in .22 caliber (yes, yes, using the lead-free light ammo). As a gas-piston, this gun is easier to cock, operates in cold weather and has less recoil - a feature enhanced by the Shock Wave Absorber recoil pad. A 3-9x40 scope is included and mounts onto Gamo's Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR) 11mm Dovetail, built to reduce recoil stress on your new optics. These features combined with the all-weather synthetic stock and Whisper Maxxim sound reduction system, make this airgun ideal for small game hunters and those who want more target practice and less reload time - especially if you grab an extra magazine.
Is a quiet breakbarrel that spits out 10 shots as fast as you can cock it “just another breakbarrel”? You be the judge!

Things I liked: Cost, looks, function.
Things I would have changed: Adjustable cheek rest would be nice. Better scope
What others should know: VERY impressed! Have only done a few shots, so far, but scope was right on center, a tad low. Much more power and speed than I expected. Buried some pellets about 1/2" deep in a pressure treated 4X4 at 25 yards.
Things I liked: "Out of the box" best break barrel I have ever seen. My hats off to Gamo, who took an already very accurate, powerful gun, and made it better. A multi shot Breakbarrel that works!
Things I would have changed: Nothing at 200.00.
What others should know: You have to try this airgun. So much fun. Easy cocking, accurate, lightweight.
Things I liked: The reload system is a huge improvement over single-shots. I have a Remington NPSS in 0.177, same as the Swarm, and the difference in reloading, firing multiple shots, is huge and well worth it. Light weight makes for easy handling, accuracy is acceptable. I was getting dime-sized groups at 10-yards after dialing it in, using RWS Supermags. I'm long out of practice with my air rifles, so that's pretty decent I think.
Things I would have changed: The scope is definitely a budget item, but it does get the job done. I would have preferred to pay another $25-50 to get a better included scope. The trigger, while adjustable, is not that good. There does not seem to be much of an adjustment range and the breaking weight is significantly higher than I like. I feel that with a better trigger I could easily stack my holes like I do with the Remington NPSS (which I put a custom trigger into because the stock one was absolutely terrible, far worse than the Swarm).
What others should know: At $200, this is an excellent value. The scope is acceptable for the package price, the trigger while not great is also not bad. It's acceptable, and I'm comparing it to an aftermarket precision trigger on my other air rifle, so that probably makes it feel worse than it really is. Definitely get an extra magazine or two, I bought two and it was well worth it. I load all three up, then have thirty rounds to send down range in rapid succession. Aiming takes more time than breaking the barrel or loading in a new magazine. A great, fun air rifle. Hopefully other manufacturers will follow suit for their break barrels, and Gamo will expand their offerings with the system.
How can you run a cleaning rod through the barrel for cleaning
You would have to clean from muzzle to breech. You would want a metal cleaning rod for that.
Is the scope the gun comes with any good
They can be hit and miss. Didn't have very good luck with mine
Are there exploded diagram for the Gamo Swarm?
I have not seen one
