Things I liked:

The trigger is pretty nice right out of the box. Or at least it was on my rifle. Even though it looks a bit like a beluga whale, the magazine system works flawlessly. The gun is very lightweight and feels great in my hands.

Things I would have changed:

Although the scope is the best one I have seen on any Gamo rifle, it still needs to have an AO feature and a quick focus reticle. A mil-dot scope would be nice too.

What others should know:

As for accuracy; I have only shot Gamo 7.9gr Tomahawks and Crosman 7.9gr Premier Hollow Points through it. They seem to hold typical Gamo accuracy. The magazine system does seem to deform a skirt occasionally when feeding. Does this affect accuracy? It is hard to tell which pellets are being deformed unless you crack open the breach and look at each one after it is loaded. Since I just use this rifle for plinking and hunting, the accuracy is fine. Out of all of my four Gamo Whisper rifles, this is now my favorite just because of the magazine.

Things I liked:

The autoload cartridge loaded 22 pellets fall out of rifle when closing the break barrel too often. Not very efficient. There seems to be no way to keep them loaded making rifle difficult to impossible to use. I obsrved other reviews with this complaint

Things I would have changed:

Find another method to load from autoloadding cartridge.

What others should know:

Don't buy

    Things I liked:

    The looks and feel of the gun. Fairly accurate depending on the pellets used. 10x is super. GREAT price (refurbished for $109.) Direct from Gamo USA. Great squirrel take out power, instant kill.

    Things I would have changed:

    I got the 3x9 scope on mine ,high mount, the standard scope just didn't clear the 10x mechanism. A better owners manual shipped with gun. (Can up load one for free on line). Move up to a maximum for quieter gun and a better stock pad.

    What others should know:

    I have shot about 500 rounds through it, with no failures at all. Still looking for the best pellets for all around use and ultimate accuracy. It shoots well with gamo match pellets, daisy pointed pellets don't yeild great groups. So far this is the best air gun I've had in my hands and I got a manufacturers refurbished gun. Would have been completely perfect if shipped properly. Their customer service dept. was great to work with.

    Things I liked:

    I like the weight over 5 lbs. It makes it more accurate. I haven't had any problem with the magazine, I bought another one, and no problem with that one either.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. You can't go wrong with a Gamo. I also have a Gamo wildcat whisper .177 single shot, very good rifle.

    What others should know:

    At first I had a hard time loading the magazine, I couldn't get the pellents all the way in the magazine, I made a push tool out of a wooden dowel, then I bought a pack of Daisy hollow point pellets, found out there longer and I have no problem loading them. The scope not the best, I replaced it with another. It is a little hard to cock at first but after shooting it about 500 time either it brock in or I got stronger. Don't forget to clean the barrel before shooting. And give it time to break in.

    Things I liked:

    Has a nice 'real rifle' weight and feel, which is appropriate since it hits with authority. Have put over 500 pellets it through it so far without feed issues, and plenty accurate. Was leery about a scope on a break barrel, but it seems to be keeping it's zero nicely. (At least the UTG BugBuster on it now does, the factory scope wasn't around long enough to tell.) Safety doesn't reset on cocking.

    Things I would have changed:

    Provided scope is, unsurprisingly, super cheap, image was dim and hazy right out of the box. Not a fan of safety inside trigger well, haven't had a mishap yet, but it's powerful enough I don't want to.

    Things I liked:

    I have put about 150 plus pellets through this rifle. I would not judge its accuracy before firing different brands and weights through it. I have tried four and have found that the Hades .22 Diablo at 15.89gr. Hold the tightest group about the size of a penny at 20 yds. I am not a pro shooter by any terms but I do shoot fairly well. This rifle is fun and very accurate for its price range.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope on this rifle is low budget and should be replaced. It works but appears cheap. I decided to just spend a few extra dollars and put a UTG 3-9X32 1" BugBuster Scope, AO, on it for a 100.00 dollars because the reviews were good on it.

    What others should know:

    If you can buy the rifle only version, as apposed to buying the rifle and scope together, I would do that and then buy a better scope for the difference in cost. Find the pellets that work best in it and zero it for the intended range you plan on shooting at. Be careful and have fun.

    Things I liked:

    This gun is pretty darned cool- its relatively powerful, has good accuracy, and is also rather light(in weight) compared to other break barrels. The scope is also pretty good- I have not had any problems with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see a picatinny rail for the scope; other than that, I would not change anything else

    What others should know:

    It has good sound suppression, which is a plus. Also, when maintaining it, oil the hinges and pivot points, but NEVER the barrel. That could affect the performance. And, use Crosman silicone to grease the breech hole.

    Things I liked:

    Basically everything. The weight, the feel, accuracy, the power, the loading. Simply put, I like this gun very much.

    Things I would have changed:

    Put sling mount capability on it, and fixed sights too

    What others should know:

    This is a really nice gun for the $$$$. It has good power, and is very easy to operate. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

    Things I liked:

    Has a nice feel to it, not too heavy, powerful and accurate. The Swarm Whisper is very easy to operate, and gets easier to use the more I use it. The scope may not be top grade, but for me it does the job well enough(you can always mount a better one on if you choose to). Very happy with this rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see Gamo add sling mounts on to it, for easier carrying

    What others should know:

    Certain pellets(preferably alloy) seem to work better, but this gun will work good enough with just about any ammo.

    Things I liked:

    Multi-Shot!, good power, moderately easy to cock, no wasting CO2 cartridges if I want to take just a couple shots at pests, easy-loading clip, scope not as bad as some reviews claim, OK trigger pull, and reasonably accurate out of the box before 'breaking in'.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope must be mounted quite high to keep the multi-shot mechanism from blocking your line of sight. I'll have to install some type of cheek pad to keep me from having to assume an unnatural posture when shouldering the rifle. Also, the edges of the split foregrip are fairly sharp. Not that big a deal but it would be nice if Gamo would file those edges off or put a rounded bead on those edges during the molding process.

    Things I liked:

    When it works it is a repeating break barrel with a gas piston and is accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    I believe the magazine is really the weak link in the success of this rifle.

    What others should know:

    I am currently waiting to hear back about returning this .177 cal Swarm and swapping for a .22 cal. The first 3-5 times I used the magazine it worked fine. Now it regularly shears pellets in half or they fall out of the loading mechanism altogether. It appears that the .22 has far less problems. I did not use the included scope as it is not very good. I will move my UTG Bug Buster from this one and hope the .22 Swarm is better.

    Things I liked:

    I mounted the scope right out of the box. Didn't worry about sighting it in...just wanted to go shoot it, I was only shooting at 15 yards but the first 10 shots were in an inch circle just just 1/2' low and 1/2" right. After the adjustments it was spot on. My first 10 shots were probably the best group I've ever had with any rifle or pistol in my collection.

    Things I would have changed:

    I've only had on pellet jamb and haven't got the system figured out on how to clear. I just need to figure it out. But.....if I don't have problems.... It is a Swarm Whisper but is still louder than I thought it would be.

    What others should know:

    Two things...I went to a big gun show to get a case. I was surprised how many questions I got about the rifle. I also went to Oak Hill Gun Club to sight it in and practice and had several other shooters watching. Thought it was pretty good.

    Things I liked:

    Great little gun! Put a simmons scope on it. Hit empty 12 gauge shells at 75 feet 9 out of 10. Gets better the more you shoot it. I use crosman domed ultra magnums. Lots of fun, kicks less than a spring piston.

    Things I would have changed:

    I couldn't get the included scope to focus , but for the price lucky it had one.

    What others should know:

    Watch for the white dot so that you don't dry fire it. I bought 4 extra mags. Might get more. It is nice to set up a bunch of targets and just keep shooting.
