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: .22 version is very powerful and quite accurate. The break action is smooth and light. 10X mag has been flawless. Overall feel is good quality on a great gun you can throw over your shoulder and shoot all day.
Things I would have changed: Package the Swarm with the Varmint Hunter scope kit. The 4X32 scope would serve 90% of shooters. The option of laser/light would make for fast sighting after a quick break action.
What others should know: Might need offset rings to achieve proper eye relief. The break action is light but takes proper technique and some strength for smaller shooters. The shooting experience is super satifying so practicing will be a pleasure. I've wanted an air rifle since i was about 9. 30 years later, and a great lil 10 shot option for $199 made it happen. Grab a tin of pellets, couple extra mags n go!
Things I liked: As other reviewers have noted, repeater functionality works flawlessly. Relatively speaking, a light rifle. Moderate cocking effort. .22 is very quiet from the shooters perspective. Unlike some other reviewers, I found this rifle to be very consistent between shots and the accuracy to be exceptional. Very reasonable price.
Things I would have changed: The non adjustable version of the ambi Monte Carlo stock gives poor cheek weld. As other reviewers have noted, the scope is not a world beater, but I think very reasonable at this low price point. I put in on an old beeman silver bear and it's quite usable.
What others should know: My testing was with no break in, but I completely removed the supplied scope and the special recoil reducing mount and put a UTG scope mounted on a UTG drooper 11mm to picatinny rail. After zeroing in at 10 yards, I got dime sized groupings using JSB Stratton Diablo pellets at 10 yards, and quarter sized groupings at 20 yards. Consistent 690 fps muzzle velocity. I may just be lucky, but clearly, assuming the right pellets, this Gamo is capable of reasonable accuracy for pest control, hunting or plinking and you shouldn't be scared off. The multi shot repeater functionality is such a nice feature. Worth the try in my opinion. I'm not a big guy and getting on in years, and I found the cocking effort to be doable. Being a lefty shooting right hander is a bit of an advantage here, because I can cock with my right arm but I think most adult males can do it all day. Remember folks, this is a $200 magazine 10 round repeater .22 pellet rifle. Great time to be alive!
Things I liked: Weight, accuracy, design, feel, smooth cocking, light cocking, very easy to shoot
Things I would have changed: Stop wasting money making these horrible scopes Gamo
What others should know: This gun is amazing. I own 4 Gamo air rifles now, and all of them have been great. Down to one that cost only 118 dollars at walmart, to the others I bought from PA. They are all super Accuracy. The swarm is a great gun. The 10x system is flawless. Easy to break down, and my barrel was not THAT dirty. I am getting 1/2" groups at 25 yards, and about 1.5" groups at 50. It's easy to shoot, it's not hold sensitive, and very accurate. It's backyard friendly for sure. The trigger is also a very nice trigger. It's smooth, does not have to much creep, and breaks very nicely. The Gamo triggers have grown on me, and I am actually starting to prefer them over one such as the Quattro trigger from Hatsan. All in all. 200 dollars, this will be the best 200 rifle you buy. The only joke... my scope stopped holding zero after only 30 shots. They really need to stop putting money into making these JUNK scopes! Guys... don't bother mounting the scope, buy a UTG, and use the one piece mount. AWSOME GUN!
