Gamo 10-shot magazine for Gamo Swarm, .177 Caliber
Note: Although magazine drum is shown as red, it is actually black.
For the first time (or almost first time) in history you can do a quick follow up shot with a breakbarrel air rifle. But what will you do if you shoot through the first mag? Sit there and reload 10 pellets at a time? Having 2 or 3 extra already loaded with you in the field will sure save you some time and frustration. Think about loading these in gloves when it's cold outside, and you will get the picture. Get a backup for quickly switching out magazines!

Things I liked: Works like the one it comes with. Great to have 10 shots before reloading!
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Buy a few extras to keep on shooting!
Things I liked: I really like the multi-shot capabilities of the Gamo Swams, despite some of the known issues (more on that below). The magazine is easy to load and idiot-proof to install as it will only go in one way. The counter on the top lets you know how many shots are left and there is a little hole, facing the shooter when holding the rifle in a ready-to-shoot position, that will display a little white dot when empty. The numbers are right in your face when cocking but the little dot is impossible to see as it is obscured by the scope. And since this is a scope only rifle, well, the dot seems useless. There are clear markings on the sides of the magazine that help to insure that you do not put a pellet in the wrong side.
Things I would have changed: The magazine should be the same color as the rifle caliber color code. These seems like a huge oversight on such a simple thing. Also, the release button is a little hard to press and at times I am afraid to press it too hard so the release can be a little fickle. I wish Gamo would put on a better scope and charge $20 more or charge $20 more and include three magazines or let us buy our own scope and give us 5 magazines!
What others should know: These are like buying razor blades, the Gamo Swarm is a value priced rifle but the at $15, the magazines are a little pricy. I think $9 would be more reasonable. That being said, they are a must buy since you can load serveral and just shoot and load, shoot and load, shoot and load until you run out of magazines or your cocking arm gets tired. PELLETS FALLING OUT: There is a known issue regarding pellets falling out of the breech as you cock the rifle (both .177 and .22). I have solved this doing two things - lightly lubing the plunger with some non-petroleum based gun lube and Q-tip and buying 4.53mm pellets from Pyramyd Air. I almost sent my rifle back in the 30-day window but after shooting over 200 4.52 and 4.53mm pellets through my .177 Swarm, I have not dropped a single pellet. Thank goodness Pyramyd Air sells 4.52 and 4.52mm pellets! I have manually loaded three sizes of pellets and 4.5mm do not fit snuggly in the breech. Just FYI.
Things I liked: It works perfectly
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Get an extra mag, you'll enjoy having it.

Gamo can release a 10 shot mag for their spring gun for $15 but they can't do the same for their PCPs like the entry level Urban?? $50 for a magazine is way too high!
Yes it is interesting to note that this mag is much cheaper than it PCP counterparts . I bought extra mags for my BSA Scorpion 1200 SE and they 49.95 ,whats wrong with this picture ?
