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: The feel, the 10 shot magazine, ease of cocking.
Things I would have changed: For Heavens sake! If youre going to include a scope.... at least make it serviceable! Break in... it should NOT take 500+ rounds!
What others should know: I purchased this gun for head to head comparison with the swarm Whisper. This gun took far longer/more shots to break in... like around 500... and is far less accurate than the Whisper. The Whisper was shooting good groups (1inch @ 20 yards) about 100 rounds. After 500+ rounds, the best the Maxxim can do is 2-3 inches, with ALWAYS 2-3 flyers out of each 10 round mag. THE ONLY THING better on the Maxxim is the trigger. That being said you can get close if you modify the 2.5mm trigger screw on the Whisper. Overall the Maxxim IS NOT WORTH THE EXTRA $$ you pay for it. Buy the Whisper, change the 2.5mm trigger screw to a 10mm long one, and CAREFULLY adjust it. Could it be a fluke? Maybe, but for $50 more, the Maxxim should be significantly better than the Whisper..... and in my experience, it is not.
Things I liked: I liked the clip but found out it is more trouble than it is worth.
Things I would have changed: I would have put some open sight on the gun and taken off the clip and the mussel brake.
What others should know: I had more problems with the gun then any other airgun I have bought and I got a couple.
Things I liked: Overall fit and finish very good. Should provide years of enjoyment.

Will destroyer .177 pellets feed smoothly in the swarm fusion mags or will it fall out or not feed?
They should feed in the magazine. We have not tested them.
Will the Crosman destroyer .177 pellets feed through the swarm fusion smoothly or will it fall out or not feed?
The destroyer pellets should feed through the magazine.
I see the FPS but I'd like to know FPE in 22cal.? Energy produced please.
