“Kicks like a mule”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by Austin3016 (1 review written)

Originally I couldn't hit anything with this gun using the scope. So I went back to basics . This gun is incredibly accurate with just hard sites usin gamo lethal pellets I can hit a coke bottle at 30yards every time, the speed of the pellet is such that it won't actually nock over the plastick bottle just leave two incredibly neat entry and exit holes… Read Full Review

“Great gun!”

Written on: 04/11/2013 by brengancg (2 reviews written)

I bought the gamo whisper fusion based on all the reviews I read. Taking it staight out of the box, I started to empty a tin of pellets. I found that your lighter pellets, pro hunter and pro magnum worked best with the rifle.The open sights were very disappointing so I scoped the rifle with Guerilla 4x32. It , the more I shot the better it became. You still get a rouge pellet say every 8 shots but I could consistantly hit my target(box of smokes) at 30yrds, 60yrds and 80 yrds. Noise reduction… Read Full Review

“Why people are having problems keeping the rifle zero”

Written on: 05/09/2013

Like many others who has written comments, my Gamo Whisper CFR had problems keeping it's scope zero. I would get everything adjusted and driving tacks, and then the next day or a few hours later something would change and the scope would be shooting off again. So I took the scope off the rifle and out of the mounts and found some sticky tape on each of my scope mounts. I removed the sticky tape, reinstalled the scope on my rifle and set the scope zero again. Problem solved and have been… Read Full Review

“Do not buy a Gamo Whisper”

Written on: 27/11/2012

I have been sighting in guns and air rifles for over 50 years. I tried to sight this one in for two days with no luck. I put it back in the box and took it back. Too start with, this gun is NOT quiet. This gun is also NOT a precision air rifle. It reminds me of the stories about the old blunderbusses that people used to shoot before barrel riflings were invented...The pellets go all over the target, and they tumble sideways. If you are interested in an air rifle that is accurate and one you can… Read Full Review

I think you are completely true, I personally think that if gamo fabricates that horrible pellets they can't fabricate a good gun, so I'll never buy a gamo's product.

Russinbaja's Comment

Written on: 03/02/2013

I agree with these comments and rating too. I had to remove the scope after hundreds of pellets because I could not count on it. It's a BSA scope and it should be okay so I'm thinking it's the gun. Started to sight in the hard sights and found it wasn't even screwed down. So I tightened everything I could and I still can not get any consistent grouping. The rear sight floats on a single pin that allows it to float in all directions. For a company that brags about being around for 50 years there in NO excuse for this sight. I do like the way the front and rear sights look when you sight in a target however ...
Anyone find a fix or decent replacement for this?

“not quiet, accuracy horrible”

Written on: 12/09/2012

This is the worst gun I have ever owned. At 25 yards it is has a random pattern of about 12 inches. At 10 yards the group is maybe 4 inches or so. It is consistent in that it will not hit where it is aimed. This is using the scope and a solid rest. As far as the power of the rifle: when shooting at a regular corrugated cardboard box the pellet will go through one wall but not completely through the second wall. This is all using the special ammo that came with the gun. A friend of mine got a… Read Full Review

“Probably the worst rifle I have ever shot”

Written on: 25/04/2012 by robsta (2 reviews written)

Bought this rifle on the back of reviews, without testing it first. That was my downfall. Anyone claiming this gun is quiet must be deaf. It is by far the loudest air rifle I have ever used. Its difficult to tell if the muzzle suppressor actually does anything, because the spring twang is so loud it drowns out any muzzle crack there may or may not be. Furthermore the recoil is so great it has shunted my scope so far backwards within the mounts that it cannot go any further and is now making… Read Full Review

You echo my experience with the Whisper. I took the scope mount off thinking I could replace it with a quality mount. The hole that holds the mount in place from the top is now oval from the kick. The hard sights are even worse. I keep trying to sight it in and just when I'm confidant I've got it spot on I get a flier. The follow up shots follow the flier and then it move again. 50 years ago I had the Benjamin Pump and I could hit with it. Heck I could hit better with my Red Rider.

“Go with a Stoeger X10, This ia a peice of junk!”

Written on: 04/10/2011 by BassinAssasin (1 review written)

This was my first airgun and I paid around $300 at the time, the trigger was junk so i ordered the GRTIII trigger from charlie and it shot with superb accuracy. But after a while (about 1500 rounds) a peice of the spring must have broke. I could hear it bouncing around inside the gun. It would still cock and shoot but i was loosing an easy 200fps. My cousin has had a stoeger X10 for several years and shoots it often and its still a hard hitting nail driver. very accurate and deadly powerful… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2011 by trailsend (2 reviews written)

Great Air Rifle! Spend the time to learn how to mount the scope. Spend the time to learn how to sight in the scope. Spend the time to learn how to hold the Rifle. Buy good Ammunition. Load the Ammo properly. My .177 Gamo Whisper shoots best with Heavy (10+ Gr.) round nose lead pellets.
There are several good articles online about Airgun setup and shooting.

“What a peice of Junk. ”

Written on: 17/01/2011

What a peice of Junk.
Accuracy awful
Noisy untill you shoot 50 -500 rounds, by then you 30 day return police screws you over.
And then it is still noisy, with regular lead pellets.
The scope moute is very weak too.
Now try too get a hold of there support if you are on the west coast. Mess.
When you open the box it says do not send back to the one you bought it from, Bull, send it back right away, ASAP,because they will not refund you.

Written on: 21/11/2010

Bought a Gamo Whisper .22 gas ram upgrade. First cheap trigger, second the back adjustable sight is very fragile keeps moving around from the plastic base even though I tighten the screw and third tried the scope and its shooting low at 50 feet with the elevation adjustment all the way up. Had very high hopes for this rifle but it let me down. On the good side its very quiet with the gas ram, ligth and packs a punch. Gamo is droping the ball with the quality on this rifle. I own an older gamo… Read Full Review

Bought this Rifle a few days ago, was originaly after the BSA Lightning xl tactical but when i went to y local gun shop i thought the bsa looked like a toy with its small size...money wasnt an issue to me however i picked this up for 100 pound cheaper.
Got the weapon home and put on my 3-9 x 40 scope and took it into the field to zero it. within 4 rounds i was bang on target...another 40 rounds down and i was still bang on the stamp attached to the piece of wood being used as a target. Been in… Read Full Review

Bought the thing in May, shot all of a half a dozen rounds-put it away and then after the 30 day no questions asked return, cocked the gun and the cocking mechanism disintegrated. It looks like its made with a bent coat hanger. Maybe this is designed as a single use disposable pellet gun… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2010

I do not know much about air rifles, but i like my Whisper very much! It is fairly powerful, durable, and comfortable to shoot. There isn't very much recoil, and it is light. Somebody on this review page said something about the pellets hitting the dampener on the way out, which i find curious. somewhere around 1000 shots, one of the pellets flew out of the barrel and hit the ground around 15 feet away from me. I checked out the dampener and there was a piece chipped off of the exiting hole… Read Full Review

I have a new Gamo Whisper. Mounted the scope but I have a shadow on the bottom third of the sight picture. It seems the mounts are too low. I removed the rear fixed sight but it is still there. Anyone have any ideas? It came with laser and light and two base mounts. I've tried both but no luck! At this point I cannot recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

I have the same shadow from the front sight.. I find the shadow useful to eliminate Cant when aligned with the vertical crosshair.
