Gamo Bone Collector Hunter IGT CAT air rifle
Benefits of the IGT over a metal mainspring:
Whisper Maxxim sound suppression
The Gamo Bone Collector Hunter features the Whisper Maxxim sound supression technology. With two chambers, this noise dampening feature offers quieter shooting and an improved muzzlebrake design. Directly integrated into the bull barrel, it also helps to reduce recoil, and its lightweight design offers enhanced balance in addition to making the air rifle quieter.
From the attractive, hardwood stock to the bull barrel, and ambidextrous cheekpiece, the Gamo Bone Collector Hunter is built to please any hunter looking for an enjoyable day in the field. It comes equipped with a 3-9x40 scope and mount for more precise shooting.
The Gamo Bone Collector Hunter incorporates Inert Gas Technology (IGT) into the powerplant by using a gas cylinder versus a conventional spring. That means you get smoother cocking and shooting, no spring torque, no spring fatigue, no issues shooting in cold weather, and a much longer life than a spring powered gun. Not only is this rifle incredibly powerful, but it has many features that set it apart from ordinary breakbarrel rifles with a typical metal spring. The IGT allows you to cock the gun and wait before you take your next shot without worrying about the metal spring weakening. Gas pistons are robust and shoot MUCH smoother, delivering less twang and vibration to the shooter!
New to Gamo is the Whisper Maxxim sound suppression technology. Not only does it deliver a quieter shooting experience, but it also offers even more recoil reduction in addition to enhanced balance and handling.
The hardwood stock has an ambidextrous cheekpiece, making this gun ideal for right- or left-handed shooters, and for added comfort and grip, the Bone Collector Hunter has checkering on the grip and forearm. The buttpad incorporates the Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) for more recoil reduction. And while the gas piston seriously reduces vibration, the SWA recoil pad stops you from feeling most of the recoil from the remaining movement of the gun.
The Bone Collector Hunter is equipped with the Custom Action Trigger (CAT). Light years better than the previous version, you can tailor this trigger to your personal preference. With this smooth and predictable trigger, you'll be amazed at what a great shot you are!
Only Gamo offers the Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR). Designed to subdue the stress on your scope, the RRR absorbs shockwaves and reduces the stress on the internal components of your scope by almost 100%. That equals a longer scope life for you.
This rifle is sure to please any hunter looking for quiet accuracy and all-around comfort.

Things I liked: The Gamo Bone Collector Hunter IGT CAT rifle has it all. Period. Accuracy, reliability, and beauty come together in one elegant package. The beautifully finished beech stock is only the icing on the cake. Noise suppression is built into the barrel, and the noise level is under 100db. Under its hood, this Gamo is lean and svelte, coming in at a hair below 7 pounds. This means you can carry it all day long in the woods, use it as a plinker, or have fun with it in the backyard. It's friendly! 800 fps with alloy pellets is all you need with the .22 version of this rifle,( which I prefer,) and its knockdown power on small game and metal targets is considerable out to 30 yards. The trigger on this Bone Collector Hunter breaks cleanly at (about?) 3.2 pounds. I don't have a pull gauge, but that's what my educated trigger finger tells me. Finally, its 3X9X40 AO scope, one piece mount, and recoil reducing rail make it very easy for you to do your part. Gamo rifles always do theirs!
Things I would have changed: If I were to change anything on this excellent setup, it might be to change out the scope rings. Sometimes, I have had trouble with Gamo rings not holding up under recoil, but that doesn't happen often and is a minor consideration when you consider the quality package you are getting. Buy this package. Yo!u won't regret doing so!
What others should know: I've used Gamo products for over 15 years. Although I have owned airguns from other manufacturers, they have often let me down by failing to function due to leaky gas pistons or terrible bundled scopes. Gamo air rifles haven't done that yet, and I don't expect them to.
Things I liked: Great feel in an air rifle you'd think you had a real deer rifle in your hands. Once you get it sighted in you can bet on bringing squirrel or rabbit home for dinner. The wife won't go hungry.
Things I would have changed: Upgrade the Scope it's ok but something with better optics is always nice.
What others should know: Great shooting rifle no issues.

Whats the better rifle bone collector hunter or hatsan 95
For me the Hatsan 95
It's so new no one knows anything about it. Not even GAMO. Try finding it on their site if you can.
Lets try again. 975 fps w/ what weight pellet? shouldn't be a hard ? to answer.
Alloy for sure. More realistic numbers in lead 22 cal are; RWS Hobby 11.9- 788fps, Beeman Silver Bear 12.6- 755fps, H&N Sport 13.7- 731fps, Crosman Premier 14.3- 669fps, Predator Polymag 16.0- 662fps, Gamo Red Fire 15.4- 679fps, Stoeger X Match 13.7- 729fps, H&N Spitzkugel 16.0- 659fps, H&N Baracuda 21.1- 553fps.
Yes, it is a difficult question because Gamo set the spec.s and who knows what they used there in Spain. It was more then likely the lightest pellet made.
thats alloy pellets. little over 750 with lead
|Max Velocity||975 fps|
