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: got the 22.most said more accurate than 17.nice weight and balance.magazine worked without problems
Things I would have changed: at 20 yards scattered pellets like shotgun.some reviews said took 200-300rds beforecalming down.tryed several different pellets.h&n,jsb,gamo,Crossman-to no avail.i finally tried to perfect the artillery hold,and patternfinally started shrinking.still not as accurath as my older whisper springer in 17.also not as quiet as my stoeger x200 in 17.also doesn't seem tomatter if loadsingle shot or from mag-so not themag causing accuracy problem.
Things I liked: The 10 round magazine works great. The rifle feels well-built, with nice weight. It's pretty quiet, and trigger feel is good. Accuracy was very good with JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy pellets. The price is good, and even better when it is on sale or has a rebate. I found it for $160-$180 before Thanksgiving. Extra magazines are $15.
Things I would have changed: The scope isn't very sharp, but it is functional.
What others should know: I bought this for my Dad, and it was my first experience with a break barrel rifle. My dad was saying that he could no longer pump up an older gun that he had. This one takes some effort to cock it, but it's only once per shot instead of 10 pumps on the older gun. This made it much easier for him to shoot for an extended time. My whole family enjoyed shooting this gun, and it convinced me to buy one for myself. The scope isn't great, but it will get you started. In fact, I bought a UTG 3-9x32 BugBuster scope for my Swarm Maxxim and put the stock Gamo scope on an old .22LR that had a worse scope on it. I will be trying RWS Super H Point pellets in mine to compare to the JSBs that I bought for my Dad. If it lasts a long time, this will be a fantastic value, especially for the prices I paid.
Things I liked: 10 shot. cheap shootin and plinkin. great for squirrels.
Things I would have changed: would like to see with wood stock.

What is cocking effort for this gun?
25 , 30 pound depending on who your asking?
What is the exploding target in the Gamo swarm video
I believe it is one of these: Umarex Big Blast Target Inflator...
Is it possible to add iron (fixed, over/under) sights to the .22 caliber model of this rifle?
