The new SWARM Magnum.22 caliber air rifle from GAMO is a big change from standard pellet rifles.  It’s the world’s first 10-shot, Break-Barrel air rifle platform!  Using GAMO’s 10X, GEN 2, Multi-shot technology, you can deliver 10 consecutive shots in 24 seconds with unmatched power, silence, and precision!

GAMO built plenty of features into this model!  The weapon has a 10-shot rotary magazine that gives you quick follow up shots. The SWARM uses GAMO’s 2-stage Custom Adjustable Trigger, giving you the ability to independently adjust the 1st and 2nd stages of your trigger (CAT) to tailor the trigger pull to your personal preference.

We all know that air rifles are quiet, but the GAMO’s patented Whisper technology leads the air rifle industry in sound suppression.  This technology is categorized into three tiers: Whisper, Whisper Maxxim, and Whisper Fusion—for quiet, quieter, and quietest performance.

The stock is automotive grade, glass filled, nylon, all-weather, with rubber inserts on grip and forearm.  The SWARM has a Fluted, polymer jacketed, rifled steel barrel with WHISPER noise dampening technology.
