Whisper Maxxim sound suppression

The Gamo Hornet Maxxim 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.

The Gamo Hornet Maxxim 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 ambidextrous synthetic stock has a raised cheekpiece on each side, making this gun ideal for right- or left-handed shooters. The buttpad incorporates the Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) for more recoil reduction. While the gas piston seriously reduces the vibration, the SWA recoil pad stops you from feeling most of the recoil from the remaining movement of the gun.

The Hornet Maxxim 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 shooter who wants precise, quiet accuracy.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Cocks easy enough, feels comfortable, about as quiet as I expected, haven't found the right combination of pellets but fairly accurate.

Things I would have changed: Advertised for small game and plinking, Plinking is great, but only pisses a squirrel off. Maybe not the right pellet yet. Hollow points aren't working.

What others should know: There is no adjustment to the trigger as advertised or mentioned in owners manual. Set screws are bottomed out and tight, cant turn in to adjust.

Things I liked: Accurate, quiet, smooth shooting and budget priced

Things I would have changed: A more adjustable trigger

What others should know: Prefers domed pellets, specifically crosman and Gamo although the red fires are a good pellet out to about 20-25 yards.

  • VICENTE from Colombia asked:

    What is the difference between this rifle at $159.99 and the Bone Collector at $ 209.99? The features and specifications are the same except for a MINIMUN difference in weight.

    • VICENTE from Colombia:

      Tyler, you have excellent eyes. I did not see it. And from some posts the CAT & RRR does not make their supossed work properly.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Looks like the stocks are the only real difference.

  • Michael from USA asked:

    How much quieter is it than the Crosman Shockwave?

    • Kyle from USA asked:

      What is the best (under $100) scope to mount for this rifle to replace the original one. Im looking for one that is durable and easy to zero in. Thank you.
