Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper IGT air rifle
Recoil Reducing Rail maximizes scope lifespan with 99.9% recoil compensation
Benefits of the IGT over a metal mainspring:
Gamo has entered the field of gas pistons with a Whisper! The Bone Collector Bull Whisper IGT air rifle is not only incredibly powerful, but it has many special features that'll set it apart from ordinary breakbarrel rifles with regular metal springs. Their proprietary gas piston means you can cock the gun and wait to take your next shot without worrying about a metal spring taking a set or weakening. Gas pistons are robust and do not lose anything in either area. Plus, gas pistons are known to shoot MUCH smoother and deliver less twang and vibration to the shooter!
Let's talk about the Shock Wave Absorber recoil pad. There's an entire industry centered around making aftermarket recoil pads. Their intent is to reduce the felt recoil, because constant recoil pounding into your shoulder is painful and will stop you from shooting as much as you want. While the gas piston is going to seriously reduce the vibration, the SWA recoil pad will stop you from feeling most of the recoil from the remaining movement of the gun.
In the past, Gamo customers have swapped out their triggers with aftermarket ones. No need to do that anymore! The Custom Action Trigger is light years better than the previous version. It's smooth and predictable and allows you to tailor the trigger to your personal preferences. What will that do for you? It'll improve your groups. Unpredictable and heavy triggers or triggers that don't break crisply are often responsible for delivering larger groups. You'll be amazed at how good a shot you are when you shoot the Bone Collector Bull Whisper IGT air rifle!

Things I liked: light and ACCURATE! WOW! i was quite surprised to find this rifle so accurate and quiet. i don't know why P.A. rates the sound level a 3, i'd give it a 2 at most. this gun is way quieter than my gamo raptor whisper.
Things I would have changed: the scope is junk. after a thorough break in, the scope was installed and it failed within 50 rounds. the cross hairs where at 45* after 100 rounds.
What others should know: my rifle loves the gamo red tip pellets. yours will vary. very backyard friendly.
Things I liked: 1. Everything! The color scheme is visually appealing. 2. Fit and finish is very classy. 3. The break-in time for the barrel is next to non-existent. 4. Contrary to most of my experiences and perhaps yours,the factory-supplied scope is actually good! The effort required to break open the barrel is easier that most, and is smooth to boot. 5. The trigger is smooth, with a guestimated pull of 3.5-4 pounds, and breaks cleanly. At 23 yards, I can wear out a bullseye in no time. Honestly, what I do now is shoot a hole, and that hole then becomes my target. This is one accurate rifle given the class that it's in!
Things I would have changed: I really can't think of anything I'd change. Mine loves the economical Crosman Premier hollowpoints (.177 / 7.9 grains). It packs a punch...enough to make it a bad day for crows!
What others should know: As with all break-barrels: 1. Clean the bore before shooting 2. Oil all pivot and metal-to-metal points 3. Use loctite on stock and sight mount screws 4. Learn the artillery hold 5. Practice breathing technique. 6. Be aware that the allen wrench isn't a hex type, but a rather a torx style. Actually I like this better because screws are less likely to strip out. Given that nearly all scopes come with hex-head allen wrenches, it WOULD be a nice touch if an extra wrench was provided, but I have a set of torx wrenches anyway, so it's no biggie.
Things I liked: This is a handy rifle its light especially compared to the rws 48 and hatsan torpedo 100x I like the new trigger miles better than the old gamo trigger easy to cock mine liked the gamo redfire pellets which was kind of odd because no other rifle I own did the stock is nice and it is quiet whether do to the whisper technology or not I dont know but much quieter than the hatsan
Things I would have changed: I think all air gun manufacturers should swiyvh to weaver rails instead of dovetails but I use adaptors and jb weld them into place and has worked great I don't see a reason the rail would ever have to come off so works for me
What others should know: The cocking weight is light the rifle is light great rifle for all day hunting and taking off hand shots I recommend this rifle as a great first rifle or even just another to add to the collection

Do the Gamo platinum come with this rifle
the recoil reduction rail is not shown but is in the description ,can anyone clarify ?
It's there, just an older image
I've had my bone collector now for almost a year I've noticed the cocking effort has lighten up does this mean i'm slowly losing power or is this normal can't really tell if there was more power before i notice this happening.
it's normal as long as it has not become excessively easy, and remains constant, then it could be just parts working in.
