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.

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.

Things I liked: Took 10 min to dial in scope with Gamo Redline Hunting Pellets. Twenty Minutes later took care of groundhog that was endulging in my beans at 60yds. Set up spinniing target 3in. Repeatedly hit target at 40 and 50 yrds. If you can shoot this all a person needs in a pellet gun. Enough said.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: It's truly an adult sized break barrel. Weight is nice. Trigger feels really good. Cocking back the barrel is easy, and for me at this time that is saying something being as I am coming off surgery on my right elbow! I've got around 200 shots though it and I can all but stack pellets on the target!

Things I would have changed: Absolutely open your back door and drop kick the scope that comes with this out!! As usual the scope that comes with is junk! So know going in that you will want a better scope, the good news from this is that you really can't over purchase. Like I said above, can just about stack pellets!! I went with a Simmons Protarget 4-12x40mm. Did need to shim the rear mount ring but it is working awesome!!

What others should know: Keep your pellet weight in around 14 to 16 gr for the best shooting result. With my .22cal I am having very good results with GAMO Magnum Energy Country 15.42gr. This is rapidly becoming my favorite target practice rifle! I feel like anyone would be tickled to own one of these! Always remember to shoot safely

    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.

    • John from USA asked:

      Could I use this at competitive shooting competitions and which caliber would be better

      • Tyler from USA:

        That depends on what kind of competition and what the rules allow.
