Gamo Swarm Maxxim Air Rifle
Benefits of IGT over Spring Piston:
Breakbarrels are among the most popular airguns purchased by shooters who are getting serious about airgunning. They're powerful, accurate and consistent right out of the box - but repeating shots? Forget it! Over the years there have been many failed attempts. The last time anyone made a successful go at it was over 10 years ago with the Diana 300R Air Rifle.
The Swarm “breaks” (see what we did there?) into the market with an elegant solution, never before achieved by airgun manufacturers - a breakbarrel with a 10 shot rotary magazine that slaps a round into the chamber every time you cock the barrel. Did we mention this gun is fast? With a mere 30lb cocking effort you’ll quickly find the ability to fire repeating shots without a single shot reload can be pretty addicting! You’ll wonder how you ever managed to keep sane loading one pellet at a time!
The Swarm Maxxim maintains a consistent velocity of 1300 fps in .177 and 975 fps in .22 caliber (yes, yes, using the lead-free light ammo). As a gas-piston, this gun is easier to cock, operates in cold weather and has less recoil - a feature enhanced by the Shock Wave Absorber recoil pad. A 3-9x40 scope is included and mounts onto Gamo's Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR) 11mm Dovetail, built to reduce recoil stress on your new optics. These features combined with the all-weather synthetic stock and Whisper Maxxim sound reduction system, make this airgun ideal for small game hunters and those who want more target practice and less reload time - especially if you grab an extra magazine.
Is a quiet breakbarrel that spits out 10 shots as fast as you can cock it “just another breakbarrel”? You be the judge!

Things I liked: This thing has low power. in .22 cal my crono read 650 FPS at 14 foot lbs. with a 25 grain pellet. I shoot a crow at point blank in the chest and the pellet bounced off and it flew away. Good gun for plinking at paper targets only.
Things I would have changed: MORE POWER NEEDED.
What others should know: Stay away from "SPRINGERS". Stick to PCP. WAY more power! WAY more accurate.

I got a gammo177 air rifle when I cock it pellets fall out cause a misfire over and over
The gun is defective, Return it or get the gun serviced thru Gamo. You have a 3 year warranty thru Gamo.
I have a gamo bone collector and found the cocking harder than it should be. I noticed a few screws were scraping the inside of the stock as I cocked the gun. Should I return it or open the stock and send it myself? I keep typing sand it but auto correct changes it to send.
You can tighten loose screws, That does not void the warranty. You have a 60 day return period.
I want to do some ballistics calculations for a friend who owns the Gamo Swarm Maxxim .22. What is the scope height from the center of the barrel to the center of the scope? Thanks!
