Things I liked:

Powerful long range and pinpoint accuracy with the right pellets. Mine does really well with .22 H&N Hornets, and nearly as good with Premier Domed & Hollow Point. New Gen2 mag prevents double loading, can also uses the other gen2 10x mag from Swarm Fusion, etc (without double load prevention). Have iron sights fitted if you want to shoot without scope.

Things I would have changed:

Perhaps different linkage design for less cocking effort? It is a truly 50lbs cocking effort, although it seems to get smoother and a bit lighter as the rifle is broken in., or you're getting used to it. The recoil is insanely strong. Getting a magnum rated scope and/or a zero recoil mount is a must. Your scope is garranteed to have a very short life without those.

What others should know:

Mine got a bad barrel droop, have to shim rear-end of scope to not using too much elevation on the scope itself. Also the pistol grip cover is snap-fitted, removable and have enough room for a spare mag, if you want to.

Things I liked:

This is the second gamo swarm magnum both have broken the pin that loads the pellets into the breach would not recommend this air rifle cant even shoot enough pellets to sight either rifle in before the pins broke

Things I would have changed:

Make the loading pin out of metal

What others should know:

Poor engineering and no quality control there is a major issue with this loading mechanism

    Things I liked:

    I liked the balance and weight of this Gamo 10X Gen 3. The 10 shot mag is a great idea and a really helps to load the next shot quickly especially if you use it for small game hunting .

    Things I would have changed:

    Dump the non adjusting parallax scope and add a better quality scope with parallax adjustment. This Gamo Swarm Magnum 10X Gen 3 deserves a scope than what it came with. The scope that came with my Gen 3 Eyepiece would not focus and the AO adjustment was not easy to set it was very tight even still without being able to focus it was a no starter to try and sight in. These problems were not worth time or effort to send back for a replacement. I bought a new scope with parallax adjustment smoother eyepiece adjustment and AO setting from 5 yards to infinity. 6 shots and I was hitting groups inside at 46 yards.

    What others should know:

    This is a quite a hefty rifle to cock and will give you a work out for a morning of 50 shots. Do yourself a favor and upgrade the scope you will enjoy this Gamo a lot more the one it comes with is not worth the time to mount.

    Things I liked:

    I like the style and feel of the gun. It is however my first purchase of an air rifle. I purchased the Gamo Swarm Magnum 10x Gen 3 Mult-shot Air Rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would definately change the plastic trigger to a Metal trigger and better trigger screw.

    What others should know:

    An overall great rifle and for me at 5' 6" 138 lbs and 70 yrs old was not difficult to cock. I purchased the .177 model and love it. Ready to get rid of the many squirels that keep trespassing in my yard.

    Things I would have changed:

    Should have bought a PCP rifle.

    What others should know:

    It has a trigger pull compared to a lanyard firing Heavy Artillery. Even using my shooting bench - a comfortable shooting position is hard to find. The reticle went sideways after about 100 shots. The tool to tighten the reticle lock ring should be shipped with the gun. Using a blade screwdriver gives me low confidence the reticle will not stay put. I should have saved the money I spent on this to buy a PCP rifle.

    Things I liked:

    I have a Gamo Swarm Mag Gen 2 in .22. Identical to Gen 3 other than a slight tweak to the actual Swarm unit. First off...absolutely tremendous power. Mine gets 830 fps with FX Heavy (18 grain) for 28 fpe. This tops my Diana 350 .22 by a few fpe. It is highly accurate as well. And at just under 7 pounds it is the lightest mag springer made, great if you are hiking/hunting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Metal trigger that is a bit 'crisper'. It has a very functional trigger as is but could be improved. Certainly doesn't break like my TX200, my HWs, or any of my Dianas.

    What others should know:

    Be VERY aware this gun is hard to shoot accurately. My personal Gamo Mag is topped with a Hawke Endurance and total weight is 8 pounds 10 ounces. A super mag springer this light 'jumps' a lot on firing. Once you learn how to shoot it the gun will flat perform. A golf ball at 50 yards is a piece of cake for me with the rifle rested.

    Things I liked:

    Power, one shot kills on ground squirrels . This rifle is very accurate. At 20 yards I can keep most shots within the size if a quarter. Being able to simply cock the rifle 10 times without touching a pellet is a great accomplishment.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don’t believe there is an easy way to reduce cocking effort. No “free lunch”.

    What others should know:

    The $20 service only provides chronograph speeds of 20 shots. I was under the impression that the scope would be sighted in. At 20 yards the pellets were hitting 2 inches to the right and 2 inches low.

    Things I liked:

    I like that I'm the only person in the house that can cock it. I like that it's fast and powerful enough to explode the Firebird targets. It's has more of a kick than my PCP rifles.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't change a thing

    What others should know:

    I was surprised that it shoots faster than a .22.

    What others should know:

    Cocking effort is pretty high, not undoable, but it is strenous. I have 5 magnum springers. This one is the hardest to cock between 3 RWS 48 and 54s and a Hatsan 135.

    Awesome gun! Very powerful. It seems to like the Crossman Piranha pellets the best so far.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope does not fit me very well. Seems a bit too low for me. That is not saying it isn't good, just doesn't fit me well. Could be my glasses/bifocals. Some day I will just replace the scope.

    What others should know:

    This is a powerful gun that takes some power to cock. Managable but not for everyone. I don't think you'll be sorry if you get this gun. Very nice!

    Things I liked:

    Love the stock, and the entire rifle! I shot this rifle 1st time today after receiving it for Christmas from my wife. I have owned many air rifles over the years mostly for rodent control. This Gamo 3gi 10x magnum was an automatic smile on my face! Put up a target @ 50yds. First shot 4 in high by the 3rd of 10 total shots was shooting about 1 in group! The only air rifle I have that has the that kinda power and accuracy is my pcp Air Force condor which costs 3 times more. Blowing through a 1/2 in piece of pine as a backstop was no problem and accurate. I did this with cheap crossman 22 cal hp pellets. Cant Wait to use some exact pellets. Love this rifle my new favorite toy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    When I received this rifle the barrel was full of some thick brown Goo like rust almost. Before shooting I took the break off cleaned it then used JB bore brite (which I use on my target rifles ) polished the barrel to finish off and accuracy was very impressive. Clean the barrel first and you will be very happy.

    Things I liked:

    In love the feel and very easy directions on how to use properly, very very accurate rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    The loading action is already not properly working and Gamo is sending me a new one to replace it with myself. The scope is adequate for the .177, however my scope came with a foggy center right around the crosshairs, very frustrating !

    What others should know:

    I love the gun and extras I purchased, just wish the cocking mechanism worked properly and I would not have to repair this new beautiful gun myself. My scope needs to be replaced as it is difficult to accurately shoot with the center of the scope all fogged up.

    Things I liked:

    Great gun straight out of the box. Put standard GAMO 3-9x40W1PM scope on, and tightened with T15 socket. Did not even have time to zero scope before two squirrels were laughing at me 20 yds. away on my house. 2 shots two squirrels not smiling at me anymore.

    Things I would have changed:

    Well only two shots fired but I got no complaints.

    What others should know:

    Yes, it is a beast to pump. Maybe well lighten up some after more rounds are fired through it?

    1st thanx for making good on scope, put my Simmons 22mag on and new rite away had something special. So when my replacement came in 4 shots 60 yards dialed in 1 inch groups. My neighbor came over now he's ordering one, Thanx again

    Things I liked:

    I have the GEN 3i. It is extremely well built, great asthetics, light considering length and the added auto laod system. Competitively priced among break barrel rifles in this range.

    Things I would have changed:

    improve cocking, it does require much more effort. I really beleive this can be resolved by Gamo engineering in future models. It shouldn't have to be that difficult. Ladies, young teen kids, and maybe elderly who enjoy plinking for fun would have a time cocking it, and more after a few times and most likely be turned off by this con.

    What others should know:

    This beast loves JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy .22 Cal, 18.13 gr and the JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo Monster .22 Cal, 25.39 Grains, Domed. I zeroed @ 30yds with the Gamo RED FIRE .22CAL and right after i shot the Diabolos and noticed a very tight shot goup vs the red fires. Gamo Red fire are nice, faster but the diabolos were very consistent especially @60 yds. Very impressed. H&N hornets were so-so. Crossman magnum were also good. But if I had to pick an overall best matched pellet I would say Diabolo hands down. This is all with the stock scope. This weekend it will be replaced by a Vortex Crossfire II V-Brite and I can only imagine.
