Gamo Hornet Maxxim IGT CAT air rifle
Benefits of the IGT over a metal mainspring:
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: The Gamo hornet maxxim is worth every penny great hunting rifle for small game and shooting targets
What others should know: Yay buy one its worth it
Things I liked: Accurate and powerful. My rifle will produce dime size groups at 30+ yards. Like I said powerful enough to kill small game. I have killed many squirrels, rabbits, a coon, skunk and a crow. It pushes Hobbie 11.9 grain pellet 803 fpe =17.04 fpe and the H&N Field Target Trophy pellet 712 fps =16.5 fpe. This is a light, easy to carry and shoot rifle. The trigger is nice and light, this is what you want in an air rifle. Gamo has it going on on the barrel lock up system. Some people complain that gamo has a synthetic barrel cover, but they have it so the barrel never comes loose and locks up perfect every time. I have never had to tighten my barrel one time out of thousands of shots, it always stays tight. That is superior technology. I have to tighten the screws on all of my other spring rifled barrels.
Things I would have changed: Maybe open sights would be nice. Nothing else.
What others should know: You don't need a 1000 fps rifle to be effective and deadly on small game. Yesterday I shot a rabbit through the neck and out the chest, dead right there, power to spare. I own several break barrel air rifles, a Walther Parrus 22, Hatsan125 .25, Weihrauch HW80 .22 and they are more powerful than the Gamo Hornet Maxxim 22, but the Gamo is easiest to cock, super fun to plink with and I don't get worried about scratching the stock like I would with my HW80. Fun without the worry. Plan on putting a tin of Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets through it. $6.24 for 500 pellets at Walmart. Happy shooting.
Things I liked: I've purchased 3 all in 22 caliber. On first one, I learned how accurate this rifle is IF you clean the barrel BEFORE attempting to site in scope/ gun. Once clean, had quarter size groups at 30yd. I've hit targets 90 ft high in trees and well over 50yds linear distance, felling them as plenty of power. Seems GAMO has got game. This rifle is probably the best value for the money in nitrogen piston arena.
Things I would have changed: Better scope, although it's adequate
What others should know: Excellent one piece scope mount. Found that JSB Match Diablo exact 18 grain 5.52mm take full advantage of power plant, seat tightly, and are more stable, consistent for this rifle vs lighter pellets

The Spec section says the FPE for the. 177 and the .22 are the same. Is that an error or are they the same?
The gas piston is the same in both calibers. With the drop in velocity the FPE becomes the same.
can this model be retro fitted to take the gen 10 system?
can a .22 cal barrel be put on this unit!!!
Swap from .177 cal to 22 cal? Yes.
