My Whisper has proven to be well worth the cash. With the high performance pellet this airgun is very accurate and as fast as advertised. The adjustable cheek rest on the stock is a little cheap but the gun overall is pretty mean. I regularly shoot at varmints up to 80 yards and the pellet still has enough oomph behind it to be effective. Not that any airgun should be treated any differently but this one definitely warrants care akin to a firearm.
ProsFast, accurate, well made
ConsNot "whisper" quiet but the suppressor is helpful

Grew with Benjamin pump which builds muscles & ability to win awards later with other firearms. It was accurate and with 10 pumps would easily go through 1x6 fence planks and much more. This is what a kid should start on. That said, it wasn't stealth quiet & might sound like a .22 in a neighborhood whose Deed Restrictions are anti-firearms. Older & wiser with more money, this GAMO was amazing for me! Almost silent One pump does it all? WOW, thanks! Speedy pellets that do the same job as Benjamin Best place to sight it in is of course an indoor range but some require no lead = copper easy to find. Why? NO WIND! Some of those that downgraded their reviews due to precision may be ignorant that very lightweight rounds such as these are very affected by Nature = wind, heat, etc. + many blame their tools when its operator error, of course some guns may have arrive d damaged ... e.g. I just received light bulbs, one broken since an idiot packed them inside only a padded envelop!
ProsQuiet as movie fantasy silencers Very accurate for this caliber One easy pump does a LOT of work, ready to fire Easy to use safety Good scope
ConsUsually out of stock - for good reason

This is a well manufactured Air Rifle. It is accurate and fun to shoot. The included scope works great is more than you need for the effective range of an air rifle. Picture two middle aged guys sitting at a patio table smoking cigars and shooting at one inch clay targets 30 feet out to 50 yards. Fun to shoot, cheap to shoot and ACCURATE. Also you get the joy of shooting without any noise issues and/or the excess energy of a firearm. However it does have enough power to dispose of rural vermin at reasonable distances.
ProsAccurate, well made, price
Gamo Whisper is a Winner
March 11, 2014
I purchased this air rifle to rid our yard and trees of some very aggressive squirrels. They may be cute with their fluffy tails, but can be very destructive of property. They are constantly raiding the bird feeders as well. This gun has been awesome. After sighting the scope I can really say that the accuracy is sweet. As far as a whisper... well it's a bit louder, but no one in the neighborhood has complained. I would highly recommend this gun to you.
November 19, 2013
I have read a lot of reviews on the Gamo Whisper. This airgun is extremely accurate, I have shot it at targets several times and it is pretty easy to get really tight grouping with the scope and gun combo. it is also extremely deadly on varmints and birds. I have killed several pigeons at about 40 yards.
June 23, 2013
I am just giving a little feedback about my recent purchase of the gamo air rifle. I am a weapons instructor and I am very experienced with rifle shooting, so I can tell you that the trigger squeeze on this air rifle is very difficult to control. No matter how slow and smooth you try to squeeze the trigger the spring comes forward on the trigger assembly causing a very noticeable jerk of the whole weapons system making for a very hard time on shot consistency. I would say that 4 out of 5 could be placed into a 1 inch grouping at 25 meters, but you will always throw one of your shots, at no fault of your own, due to the heavy jerking caused by the trigger assembly.
ProsAll around it's a great weapon. It hits very hard and can take out large squirrels all day. It is a quiet weapon when you use lead, if you use the steel shot it literally sounds like a .22 rifle when it impacts something solid. Your neighbors will not know what your are up too if you use the lead ammo.
ConsTrigger has a very hard snap to it when squeezed causing the weapon to throw your shot groupings towards your strong side.

My dad purchased a Gamo rifle for me 54 years ago; I still use the gun to teach my foster boys gun safety. I purchased the whisper 22 for more stopping power and target shooting.
ProsGun is great quality. kept 1/2 in group out of the box after mounting scope at 40 yards. Great scope that is easy to mount and adjust. Location of safety is easy to use and teach the boys gun safety. Gun is too difficult for my 10 and 12 year old to cock.

I could not get this gun to shoot a consistent group, with or with out the scope. I let my marine neighbor shoot it and he couldn't get it shooting straight either. Don't waste your money, it is not worth it. And the noise level is more than expected
Consnot accurate at all, long trigger pull
March 19, 2013
I've tried every pellet and 3 different scopes. No luck. Getting 3 inch groups at 20 feet and also some fly outs to 5 inches off every 5 or 6 shots.

Conszero accuracy Trigger is longggg
Accuracy in Question
February 24, 2013
After remounting the scope which came with this gun three times, purchasing a new 'better' quality scope, trying to shoot the gun with open sights, and finally remounting the original scope, I cannot achieve any type of reasonable accuracy. The mounts/rings seem secure (two different sets) and the barrel lock seems secure. I broke out my bench rest equipment and shooting at 15 yards. I continue to get two or three shots in a 3/4" group and then the next shot might be 1 1/2 inch high and the following shot 1 1/2 inch low (3 inch spread). I have used three types of pellets - all with about the same results. This gun was to be for varmint control and I don't have enough faith in the gun to even use it. I bought this gun because of its reputation but sadly it has left me sorely disappointed.
ProsStyling Ease of cocking

I bought the Gamo Whisper two weeks ago. It was smoothly shipped to my home on schedule. The Scope was easily mounted. The firing was powerful, but not whisper. Overall, it was worth the money I spent.

More than happy with this rifle, very solid gun. This thing hits hard and the open sights are dead on. I would buy it again.

Whispering for its punch
January 2, 2013
Bought this gun as an Xmas gift for my dad, he had to spend some time sighting in the scope, but it was made easy with the targets it came with. It sure does have some power behind it, after finding the flattened pellets as proof. I chose this gun due to having the silencer, but I gotta say don't think it makes a big difference considering the power. It has just as much noise as any pellet gun, I'll see how long it takes for my neighbors to notice the sound. Overall it feels and operates like a quality made gun, the quality feels like one of my actual rifles, Strong!! My dad is so far very very happy with this pellet gun, he looked as happy as Ralphie from A Christmas Story! But he noticed that on the box it says comes with some PBA ammo, but search box and didn't find any..
ProsThe over all quality, feel, balance, location of safety, power.
ConsThe level of sound is not a whisper.
not such a whisper
January 1, 2013
I must have gotten a bad one because I can't get this thing to group less than 3" at 30 yards. My 22-250 shoots less than 1MOA so it's not me. The trigger on this thing is crap. I would not pay $200.00 for this gun.
Consaccuracy quality of parts noise trigger

So I received my Gamo air rifle today and I love it. I sighted in the scope very easily and was having fun shooting in no time. This rifle has a lot of power, can't wait to pop some rabbits and squirrel's for some good eating. I watched a lot of reviews on the rifle and the video's always seemed loud when they shot the rifle, but it really is not loud at all. I am very impressed with this air rifle. I recommend this air rifle to anyone wanting a Gamo air rifle.
ProsEasy to set up Good looking Well built Fun, Fun, Fun
Excellent neighborhood gun
December 8, 2012
I have had this .22 cal gun for about two years now. Love it. I live in a quiet neighborhood and when I moved in, the former owner had been feeding the squirrels for years. After I hung the birdfeeders up, they moved in and I took aim with this gamo. You only hear the thump of the spring, but no crack like you hear in a normal pellet gun. Excellent for the neighborhood. After a few months, the neighbors told me they had noticed the squirrel population had been reduced. Nobody heard anything to make them suspect anything. Decent scope for the purposes, not blown away by it, but it does the trick. Need to use quality pellets in it or the gun will spray. After a few rounds, the break barrel loosens up and is really easy to use. Overall, a really light gun and easy to tote around the woods when you're not in a neighborhood.
ProsGood bang for the buck Powerful Excellent for neighborhood squirrel blasting Light weight Consistent accuracy
December 4, 2012
Should be called the BANG, it is far from a whisper. Nicely built for the price. We'll see how the scope holds up. Pretty cheesy mount, took 10 shots to get a 3/4 grouping of 2 before the rain came, so we shall see. Hopefully I can adjust the trigger pull, it is a bit stiff. Would be nice to have seen through mounts to use the open sights, they look a bit high for the rear sight though.
ProsSeems well built, and durability will be in the future.
ConsScope mounts and noise. Not real sure if i'm getting 1200 ft/sec with the raptor pellets.

November 25, 2012
The gamo whispers is an awesome air rifle. Super accurate, only took 3 to 4 pellets how to dial in the scope. Very accurate from short to long distance. One complaint; package says it was supposed to come with free pellets. The only pellets I got were the ones I purchased.
Merchant Response:Includes: Scope: 3-9x40mm Air Rifle Scope With One Piece Solid Mount and .177 Caliber Air Rifle
ProsI like the accuracy and the ease of loading.
ConsThe scope mount Is one solid piece. There's an anti shock bar attached to the rifle and the scope is mounted to it for placement for the scope. However, after shooting the rifle a bunch, the mounting hole gets "worn out" and that could affect the anti shock of the scope.
Best Airgun I have ever bought
October 20, 2012
This is no toy. On my first test in the backyard, I shot at my fence thinking it would stop the pellet, boy was I wrong. It went through my fence and the neighbors fence. For plinking small game, this is an awesome riffle. If you had to survive in the woods, this would be the riffle to take.
ProsPower is awesome. Built in silencer wont wake your neighbor. Very accurate once sighted properly.
ConsNot much to dislike...it's no AR rifle, but it gets the job done.
Whisper is not accurate, aim is...
October 9, 2012
The gun is light the scope is excellent. The aim is so true I love it, better than the more expensive gun I had been borrowing. However, whisper is just not true, it is much louder than the gun. I was using although that is to a large extent because this guns stock is hollow versus a wooden stock. Still, it just isn't that quiet! Nice to handle and shoot overall for the price.

EXCELLENT RIFLE, VERY CONSISTENT POWER AND ACCURACY. LIKE GAMO SUGGESTS, I RECOMMEND USING PBA PLATINUM PELLETS OR POINTED PELLETS. I USE IT FOR TARGET SHOOTING AND PEST CONTROL (GREEN IGUANAS) WHICH ARE A HUGE PROBLEM PUERTO RICO. I AM REALLY SURPRISED WITH THIS RIFLE AND I'M SURE YOU'LL ALSO LIKE IT. THE SCOPE TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND PELLET WASTE TO SET IT BUT AFTER IT IS SET IT'S DECENT.

August 19, 2012
Had great expectations. Initially disappointed and finally satisfied. I received the rifle and the the front sight was missing. It came lose in the box and when I replaced it it was a piece of junk. Replacing it was useless. The rear sight moved so much that the combination of front and rear sights felt like a clown target practice. Since I planed to use the scope the sights were removed. Sighted in the scope and it shot like a charm. I invited a fried whom is an avid airgun shooter and the @#&T hit the fan. He couldn't hit the bulls eye. The scope was defective. If you bobbed your head up and down while looking through the scope the target would move up and down. I finally purchased a Tasco scope and am pleased with the result. The noise level SEEMS high. However, it seems high to the shooter. The noise is directed back. To a spectator standing forward of the shooter the noise level is reduce. Be careful with the penetration power. This is not juniors 10 year old toy.
ProsPower and accuracy
ConsSights and Gamo's scope
Gamo Whisper air rifle .22 noise reducer 95 w/scope
July 30, 2012
I couldn't hit anything to begin with until I stopped resting it on an old suitcase and just steadied the rifle against my bedroom window frame. In the last 3 days I've gone 5 for 5 on those pesky squirrels. All I have to do is hit almost any part of the squirrel and the little beast won't be wrecking another birdfeeder. So now I'm experiencing dead on accuracy at 40 to 50 yards and happy as a lark with my $214 investment. I haven't tried beyond 50 yards because I don't have to. The furry varmits come right into range in the back yard. As for the noise reducer, I thought it would be more quiet than I was led to believe. Yes, it's about the same as the sound of a stapler, not so, unless you're talking about a 3 foot stapler - I don't think they make'em that big, do they? It makes a decided "crack" which the neighbors could easily hear, especially if the were outside. However, I live in a residential area inside the city limits, and no one has said anything yet. I think, if they are hearing me picking off the squirrels, they are so happy with the absence of squirrels, they could care less about the noise. I will say that the rifle noise is muffled by about 50% and it's not very annoying at all, especially since I finally figured out how to shoot the thing. All-in-all, I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed with this rifle if you have the same needs as mine. It's easily the best $200 I've ever spent. I got more than I paid for and can't imagine you'll find yourself crying in your squirrel stew and wishing you would have upgraded with a more expensive model.

I bought this pellet rifle about two weeks ago. When I pulled it out of the box, I noticed that the rear sight was adjusted heavy to the left, seeing that I centered it right away and started shooting at targets, only to find out I had to move the rear sight back to the far left again. I was able to maintain a good grouping on my target, that being a 3.5" floppy disk. I later put the scope on the rifle. After reading the other reviews, I thought it would be a good idea to use a light weight thread lock on the screws and let it sit overnight. Once the scope was sighted in, I was pretty much parking the pellets anywhere on the target that I was aiming at and I'm no pro at shooting. In regards to the type of pellets that I'm using right now, the Crosman Wadcutter and Pointed are working out just fine for this rifle. I fired a few rounds of the alloy type pellets, you will hear a small crack when fired. The lead rounds work fine for me. The only other sound you will hear when you pull the trigger will be the sound of the spring being released. As far as the trigger action goes, again I'm not a pro shooter, but the action feels fine for what I'm using it for, once you get used to it.
ProsIn the right hands, this rifle is a nail driver and the cocking action isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was able to get the gun sighted in and rock'n, in under 300 rounds.
ConsThe iron sights need to be improved, you shouldn't have to jack the rear sight so far to the left to dial it in.
Good value on sale for $210
June 16, 2012
Best gun for the money. Consistent shooting. Very quiet if you shoot pellets 7 grains or heavier (lead). The 1200 fps ammo breaks the speed of sound. You will hear a distict 'CRACK!" when this happens. Using quiet ammo, it takes a head shot to drop a squirrel more than 10 yards out. I have several hits using Gamo Red Fire, and Gamo Rocket and Crosman Destroyer. On my gun the open sights were slightly skewed off center to the left, but accurate. When you install the scope use a medium duty thread locker and let it sit overnight. If you fail to do this, the vibrations from the spring unloading WILL loosen the scope. It will get quieter after 5-10 shots. Then most of the noise comes from the spring. I shoot in my backyard in the city all the time. On mine the scope is kinda funky. I sighted it at 3x power. It is accurate, however, if I zoom in to full power the shots hit high and right about six inches!! at forty yards. At forty yards I can hit a small bird on 3x power. Head shots on squirrels are kinda tough at this range cause they don't hold still more than 2-3 seconds. The trigger totally stinks. I ordered a replacement from Charlie Datuna, $35. I highly recommend this. It is easy to change if you have the handyman skills to install a garbage disposal.
ProsOverall I am satisfied with this gun. I am having fun with it.
ConsIf I had the chance to do it all over again... I would by a .22 caliber Gamo Whisper with a gas spring, add a Charlie trigger, and buy a $50 fixed 4x power scope.

I like the feel of this air gun. It took about 10 minutes to read the instructions and set the rifle up. I mounted the scope and sighted it in per the instructions. It's very accurate and reminds me of shooting a 22 cal rifle.
ProsLove the scope on this rifle.
February 19, 2012
Shot my Whisper for the first time today. I like the results. I am not interested in a tight group on a paper target but whether I can hit a water bottle or a can cleanly. With the Whisper I get just that. Excellent Plinker.
ProsGood iron sights.
Accurate, powerfull and fairly quiet
January 22, 2012
I've had my Whisper for about a year now and it hasn't let me down yet. I initially bought it to help with a squirrel problem I had and it did the job. It also took care of a few groundhogs. I took the scope off because I found that it wouldn't mount on securely as it should and would move. Even with the open sights it's easy to get very accurate shoots. The fiber optic sights help you fix on to your target very quickly. The noise of the spring makes this gun sound louder to the shooter than it really is. If you use heavy pellets, bystanders/neighbors will only hear a soft pop and a whizzing. People comment about the trigger but I don't have any issues with it.
ProsAccurate Powerful Easy to cock
ConsLoud spring. (like any other break barrel riffle) Loose scope mount
January 14, 2012
I bought my whisper 4 years ago. Not long after it was stolen. I just got it back yesterday. It still fired perfectly. It appears to have never been used in the last 4 years. I remember the only time I got to use it was to hunt down a muskrat that was destroying the edges of my mom's fishing pond. I remember it was practically silent using lead but made quite a racket using gamo raptors which were the high tech cutting edge pellet then. I have since then stopped using those and switched back to lead realizing they might fly a bit slower but airgun hunting isn't about speed of getting the shot down range. It is all about getting mass accurately down range and into a small target. The gamo whisper is capable of doing that accurately and quietly as long as you are not breaking the sound barrier. I was having trouble keeping the scope on it much less sighting it in before it was stolen. I'll try again in the spring. Too cold out at this time to do more than store the guns.
ProsGun looks great. Quiet with lead pellets
ConsScope vibrates right off the gun in around 3 shots.

I got this rifle as a gift back in 2009. Out of the box it is a nice rifle. The polymer stock is clean, well made, and comfortable. The gun is no problem to drag around the woods all day, especially if you mount a sling on it like i did. Ive heard many mixed reviews on the scope, but lets remember were only shooting 75-80 yards max. For what it is, its clear, easy to adjust, and holds its zero if properly mounted. By properly mounted, i mean i had to tighten every screw and adjust the scope stop. Once that is done, its rock solid. The iron sights arent the best, but i do like the tru-glow fiberoptics. They are great for low light hunting. The trigger has something to be desired. I adjusted it to its lightest, and its ok. Id say its around 6 lbs, however if you are like me and shoot lots of service rifle, you wont have a problem. Break in took about 500 rounds. Ive found that heavy pellets shot the best, i use the Champions choice Diablo match pellets, and have made a few 100 yard shots on a calm day. The silencer does work, as it sounds more like a muffled thud and not the typical crack. Bottom line, learn how to mount the scope, break it in properly, and find pellets it likes, and youll have a great, well rounded, reliable pellet gun for around 200$. The gamo whisper gets 4.5 stars.

Well worth the money
December 2, 2011
I purchased this rifle in the hopes that it would be as quiet as advertised and accurate enough to get the job done on small varmints. As a former competitive shooter, I am impressed with the accuracy as I sighted in several three shot groups of one ragged hole at 10 meters. I cannot vouch for the quietness of the weapon, though my neighbors are unaware I've used it on my property, so that may be something. I have taken down several rabbits using the psa ammo available. One shot kills, including a hit that took a smaller rabbit completely off its feet. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.
ProsAccurate Good stopping/knockdown power Lightweight
ConsLengthy, mushy trigger -- a good 2 stage match trigger and this weapon would be perfect.

The Gammo Whisper .22 cal is a great buy. it has the punch of a .22 airgun, with the noise level of a something like a staple gun. most .22 air's are quite loud, but this one is as quiet, possibly quieter, than my .177 Co2 pistols. it came with a very nice quality scope that is fully adjustable. it uses a lot of composite plastic material which keeps the weight down considerably. when you raise it to your shoulder this becomes very apparent. it's very light for a full size rifle. some people feel that heft equals quality, but these days many products like this have a lot of thought put into them as far as ergonomics goes. it's easy on the body. and also the break-barrel pump is smoothe and simple to manage. Gammo quality can speak for itself when you try one. this is a gun that will last a very long time.
ProsQuiet. Light weight, easy to carry and manage. Good quality scope. Very Accurate and powerful.
ConsThe trigger, guard and saftey latch are all composite plastic. even though I don't suspect they will be damaged any way through handling, or even dropping, it would feel better with a nice solid metal trigger, guard and safety. I don't think it would have added any considerable weight to make those pieces some kind of metal.

Gamo Whisper .22
August 4, 2011
Upon purchasing the Gamo Whisper, I figured since it was a Gamo it would be somewhere near top-notch, and damn was I right. This thing packs a punch. The only organic targets I've shot are apples. A .22 hollow point pellet practically blows the apples apart, rotten or fresh. A half inch of ply-wood is easily blasted apart, but an inch of plywood will stop the pellet, but another shot or two in that same hole and the board is splintered. My makeshift range in the basement (a nice quiet place to put the silencer to the test, works well, and sight in the gun.) has targets mounted on 1 inch plywood, a few cardboard boxes with 3 inches of foam in each, and an old wooden door. I need a new backstop already, the pellets just shear through the plywood, practically ignore the boxes, and with a few well aimed shots the door is destroyed. I'm going to need some heavy metal to stop these pellets, and if a half inch of ply-wood doesn't stop a pellet, neither will the skull of small game. Buy this gun, it is a must-have
May 23, 2011
Bought this gun, as the brocs and cauliflower plants kept getting eaten but wasn't sure what was damaging my plants...I got this gun and was zeroing my scope , and out of the blue, a rabbit showed up in the backyard. Put my Gamo up and one shot about 25 yards away...head shot...The gun worked great. very powerful . and the garden got rid of the rabbit !! The only thing that I didnt find accurate is the scope, and it kept moving off the mount even after tightening all the loose nuts..but it kept coming off the mount. I ended up replacing the scope and it worked much better than the one sent with the gamo, but still the scope kept moving off the mount with repeated firing. I think the mount of the gun doesnt hold the scope well, so I ordered a new mount and rings , hopefully this will help keep the scope steady. Otherwise I think the gun is excellent, accurate and powerful.
Good value & relatively quiet air rifle.
April 26, 2011
Although it doesn't seem overly quiet when firing, from 15 meters to the side or back, all you can really hear is the "sizzle" of the pellet in the air. The trigger is a little rough, but with a GRT III aftermarket trigger, the combination is a tack-driver. Good power behind this air rifle, too. You need one of these in your airgun battery ... As long as you upgrade the trigger.

Its pretty quiet, because I have close neighbors. It seems louder to you than it does if youre a few feet away. Its very reliable, nice scope. I had a squirrel problem chewing on our house... Got about 30 if not more... haven't had squirrels for about a year. They must have told their friends.

Not my favorite
November 22, 2010
It deserves a space in a collection simply for innovation. However I do not use it much. I find the noise supressor makes it hard to sight in or acquire a target. With PBA ammo it is just as noisy as a regular gun and pests are just as dead, so In my professional opinion, Nothing is gained from the noise reducer so I go for other guns first. In my tests I did not see any significant drop in noise even with lead pellets between this gun and another of equal power.
November 3, 2010
Bought this gun and it is without a doubt the best pellet rifle that I have ever owned. It is very accurate and quiet ... yes quiet. The reviews I read before I purchased this gun said that this is not a quiet gun, I beg to differ. It is not quiet if you use the hi velocity pellets, but if you are using regular pellets, it is very quiet. Best purchase I have made ... very happy with the gun and the service ... OUTSTANDING!!!

I am a big game hunter,elk, moose, deer, etc. I had a pump up crossman that I used to run off varmits and shoot pigons. It worked OK at the time not knowing any different. When I received the Gamo I was impressed with the fill of it and the way it looked like a real rifle. I put the scope on it and went out to sight it in. Didn't have any trouble getting it on the mark. The I checked the penetration of the pellets in the blocks of wood the I was shooting. I would compare it to a 22 short. About 3 in the mourning I spotted a coon in the garden, about 40 yards away. The coon will not be in anyones garden again.

The scope leaves a lot to be desired and the trigger leaves a lot more.

I am only 12 but i am an air rifle expert. i recieved the Whisper for Christmas for '09. it is a extremely great air rifle. I have killed a bird at about 10 yards. The reason that i am including this is because i hit the bird behing the eye on one side but tore most of the head off on the other side. The gun is called whisper for a reason! it wont wake up your neighbors in a neighborhood. The balistics for this gun are AMAZING! the gun is inaccurate at 100+ yards. Please correct me if i am mistaken. This gun is a definate powerhouse. For best accuracy; stay with one pellet always! I currently am waiting to see if the gun has the power to kill a coyote. Due to the ballistic coef. this gun matches up.This gun makes a great birthday or Christmas present, and a great rodent exterminator!

Very nice to handle once you site it in. Light weight and enjoyable.
July 29, 2010
i had a problum with thoes tall rats peple call "chipmonks" i call them dead head shots at 30 yards. i drop'm like flys. this thing is good with crowmags and a nice bipod. i got this CRAP ncstar bipod. the springs fell off and so did the legs. the scope is fine once you sight it in. my longest shot was 1000 ft at a watertower. hit 5ft low good gun for all pests from rats to racoons

No as quiet as I expected but much more powerful. Is a little difficult to sight it in, but once you have it dialed in it is VERY accurate. I begun by using 3/4 inch pine siding as a target back stop but after the first 2 shots went through the target and the pine siding and distroyed a gallon of weed killer in my shed I was forced to move to a more secure area. The loading is very simple and best of all fast. GREAT GUN.

I wouldn't call it quite a "Whisper". It is a bit louder than I anticipated - however is a very well made / quality airgun. It is extremely easy to use and as accurate as the shooter pulling the trigger. 8 for 8 chipmunks at 20 yards. I live in a residential area and shoot this gun quite often without drawing any attention from the neighbors.
No More Woodpeckers!
July 18, 2010
We have a severe woodpecker problem here. Last year they did over 500 dollars worth of damage to our house. 3 down and still a few more to go. This gun was the perfect solution for my problem. Very accurate for the 20 to 30 yard range that I shoot from. I hope the other woodpeckers pass the word along that feeding time at "Gumby's" is over!
July 15, 2010
I have read a lot of reviews complaining about the scope. Here is what I experienced on my Gamo Whisper Deluxe with 3 x 9 scope. Every screw, and I mean every one of the bolts and screws in the mounting rings were loose. I had to focus the scope initially and that took a lot of turns of the eye piece to do so. Then I set the eye relief which was comfortable for me. I tighten down all of the ring mount screws (diagonal alternate each screw) Then proceeded to sight it in at the intended distance to target, for me only 35 yards. I found the best consistency with Crossman Max and Gamo red tip deep penetration ammo. The gun shoots well and I will probably upgrade it to the nitro air piston. The included gold ammo shoots much faster so with it, I am about a inch high than with the aforementioned ammo. I will use it for greater distances if needed. Love the weight of the gun, it is fairly easy to pump and feels solid. I do recommend this gun.
Review Gamo Whisper
July 9, 2010
Great rifle. Have been shooting this rifle now for 6 weeks and it is extremely accurate and quiet, at least with the 1000 fps pellets. The 1200 fps break the sound barrier and therefore make a loud crack which you'd expect. I find the scope accurate putting pellets into a 1" target at 30 yards, and the trigger seems fine once you get used to it. Well worth paying extra for the RWS Superdome pellets, as they are devastating on squirrels, chickmunks, crows etc. and always right on when target shooting. Highly recommend.
June 17, 2010
This gun is accurate as hell. At around 30 yards standing up with beeman crow-magnum pellets 1 inch groups. Really quiet too. Ive shot a couple of skunks at night time and have missed and have been able to get a second shot at them because the noise the gun makes doesnt scare them that much. The only thing i dont like is the scope that came with the gun. Its not very easy to zero. Other than, its an awsome gun. I dont see much skunks anymore.
June 8, 2010
This is a powerful and accurat rifle. It seems to shoot the best with pba ammo. The day I sited it for the first time, I seen a rabbit 35yd and hit him right through the head.
second review Gamo Whisper
May 21, 2010
Regarding spring piston, it seems like, if Gamo REALLY wanted to reduce noise, they should have made ALL of them ONLY with air pistons, because the spring is very noisy (to which others have also attested at other sites on the web, comparing its apparent noise to actually greater than a good RWS or Beeman of comparable quality). That said, it is a pleasure to have a full sized pellet rifle that is not as heavy as a standard hunting rifle (5.8 or so versus 8-9 pounds).
Gamo Whisper .17
May 21, 2010
A bit loud when heard from my end of the barrel, probably the spring. I have not heard it fired by someone else, so cannot attest to any "52% noise reduction" (how do they derive that precise a figure, anyhow!?) - it sounds as "loud as" my old "child's" RWS rifle, which seems also more accurate at short range [under 30 feet]. I do NOT like the scope, as it seems to be off after a few shots, and I always liked iron sights - the glowing sights on this gun are amazingly easy to see, even in low light. I "should have" got the .22 for what this does... however, too late.
May 7, 2010
this gun is good not loud so can shoot it in you back yard i had the recruit b4 this and that killed in 1 shoot this gun just makes my day with its power great gun
April 10, 2010
good gun for varmint hunting only had it for two days.you should get this gun perfect for a 11 year olds birthday
March 3, 2010
great gun. took me a while to sight it in but its dead on now. killed 4 red squirrels a crow and a gray squirrel. always looking out the window for something else to pop. and quite so my neighbors cant hear me.
February 13, 2010
Got this gun for christmas and wow I was amazed! This gun is accurate & powerful & reliable. This gun will have no problem taking down these animals squirrels,chipmunks,crows,other kinds of birds, rabbits, ground hogs, maybe even a turkey if you hit it in the write spot!! The only cons I have for this gun is the scope sucks but what the hek its free. I don't know if it's my gun but this thing is loud!!! Not a good thing at all! It cracks like a .22 but i dont know if its my gun but who cares great gun 5/5 for sure. Great overall definantly recommend it, hopes this helps.

got my gun a few days ago and tried it a few times, i really like how it shoots and its pretty quiet. if i had a choice i would buy it again, scope was dead on when i hit my target at about 75 yards.
January 12, 2010
i got this gun the 177 cal. yesterday. i have noticed the scope is pretty bad for someone like me (pro) but it is manageable. it you dont want to disturb the neighbors great gun for u. fast killer too. and people sayin it isnt quiet. its meant to where u hear it but people around u dont.
Quiet & Lethal
December 7, 2009
I've owned this for about 6 months now and would have to say this is one hell of a rifle. I was shooting plastic bottles 52 yards out and was surpised that it shot clean through...I was expecting it would maybe go in and stay inside or just knock it over...wow! I put a Charlie-Da-Tuna GRT-III triger on it the day I received it after reading all the reviews about the trigger...well worth the money! I wasn't crazy about the GAMO scope, so I invested in a Simmons Scope for about $80. Rifle is powerful, accurate...and quiet! The main reason I bought this was to deal with pests...Dropped a squirrel on my neighbors roof with a predator raptor pellet. It was dead before it hit the ground. If you live in an urban/sub-urban area and need to take care of pests quietly...this is your weapon.

This is a great gun it has Good Accuracy
Scope Directions Incomplete
September 21, 2009
The scope mounting instrs are misleading, and/or incomplete. I could not elevate the POI after originally mounting the scope, but windage worked fine. Apparently a spring-driven pneumatic gun imparts a strange (double) recoil, not necissarily from the projectile, but from the spring/piston mechanism. This is sufficient to wreck a std .22 scope in short order, so there is an add'l torque screw, which goes diagonally from the top of the scope mount, towards the butt of the stock. The directions said to screw it in 'no more than .25 in.', but they should have read "OVER .25 in." After removing the scope, I bottomed the screw into the unthreaded cavity. There are 8 hex screws to close the scope rings, and I noticed the 4 right screws were all loose when I unmounted the scope originally. I attributed this to my original mounting, which had unequal gaps on the scope rings. Bordering on being anal, I landed the scope in the rings with equal gaps on each side, checking w/feeler gauge as I torqued all 8 down. The allen wrench which Gamo provides rounded easily, even after I reground the tip, so I used one of my own SAE tools instead. I (green) Locktite-ed the assembly and let it dry overnight. First shot printed 3" low and 1" right again, but each click brought me up about 1/2" now ! Seventh shot hit the 3/4" bull edge at the 7 o'clock position, on my 30' range. I wanted to complete my standard 3 shot grouping, but was distracted by a tree-rat at 15 feet. I chambered a PBA/Raptor, squeezed the trigger, expecting a report that never came. Mine are still subsonic @ 900FPS (unlike the .177s), and are no louder than lead, contrary to what I've read on the net, and the (generic) operating manual ,which is written for the .177 gun. He jumped around for about for about 5 seconds before laying down. There was almost enough time for me to chamber a 2nd round, but that wasn't necessary. I was amazed by the devastation of this round at close range. I had the crosshairs square on the main body, but you would have sworn I had taken a head shot:. A couple minutes latter a second squirrel came under the crosshairs at 40'. Same devastation from a single PBA/Raptor, looked just like another head shot. I'm in business, scope zeroed. Like a fine English sports car, if it's working, don't mess w/it.

this is a great gun and it is quiet power but the only problem is that some pellets that are deformed at the base fall through and get stuck in the noise reducer but it is very accurate and fast but has a bit of recoil overall this a very very very good gun and cool looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One Shoot One Kill
July 13, 2009
Well after getting this Rifle I felt it was going to live up to the hype. It did for the most part. First it is not as quiet as one would like. (looking into this) and the Trigger is lacking some! as for this weapon with the light ammo it is fast but all over the place. After taking it out of the box I loaded it put the open sights on a can about 45 yards out and nailed it good! after spending days looking to get the scope zeroed in - with the lite ammo it wouldn't I put one round right in the back of the first one thinking I had it, then the next day I was off 2 inches to the right and the next day it was low 2 inches, this will make you crazy! GOT TO FIND BETTER AMMO. All in all I give it a 4 and thinking I should have went with the .22 cal weapon!

I needed a quiet gun do to my surrounding and still wanted power this gun has both. This gun was not my first choice but after a week of use I'm happy. I set my targets on a sheet of new plywood and started shooting beeman extra heavy pellets. They go right through the plywood at 30yds. The pellets the gun comes with are bad they might go fast but are not accurate. If you want quiet power that is fairly accurate this is you gun.

SHOOT AND SEE
June 6, 2009
I RECEIVED THIS YESTERDAY. USED SHOOT AND SEE TARGETS. TOOK ABOUT 20 ROUND TO CENTER. FIRST 5 SHOTS WITH SCOPE WERE WITH IN 1/4 INCH DOWN AND TO LEFT. MADE CORRECTION. NOW IS SHOOTING DEAD ON. WONDERFUL GUN. ONLY THING I HAVE TO GET USE TO IS TIRD LETF ARM FROM COCKING THE GUN. SURE IS QUITE. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PRODUCT.
By edward c.
very good product
June 2, 2009
I guess everyone has a different slant on things. I found the scope on this piece to be easily installed and very easily sighted in. Once on, I've not noticed any changes. I can consistently hit small targets the size of coke cans at 50 yards, with lead pellets. I've not done much 100 yard work yet, but suspect that the Raptor Pellet is the one for long distance shooting. I positively couldn't be more satisfied with this product. The trigger is two stage alright, but quite manageable. As one gun writer wrote, " Americans have been brainwashed to think you have to have a light trigger to shoot well". Get used to the trigger, and it will serve you well. I downed one of those obscene black birds at about 50 yards. The only live target I've shot so far, but am expecting good hunting from this piece.

Just got the gun yesterday, took a while to zero in the scope, but able to group within one inch from 25 yards. Had a Crosman with very little power. Needed something to take care of a groundhog problem. Waiting for it to show its head. Gun is great with good power. Highly recommend. Only caveat, trigger needs to be replaced. Is this easy to do?

Accurate and Silent
April 26, 2009
Tried various munitions and have settled on Predator Polymag as my pigeon killer of choice. Extremely accurate with said ammo. I have to dig the pellets out of the backstop to prove that yes, they all did go in the same hole. I didn't hit once and miss 4 other times like my friends claimed. CRT3 trigger and a much better optic system is the only changes I have made to this weapon.

Conel Rifle, What do you mean by CDT trigger? Where would I get one? Thanks! Mike
April 8, 2009
A very nice rifle,and well put together.I made my choice on this rifle because of 1 all the good things you foulks had to say about it! 2 I am teaching myself to shoot left handed because i went blind in my right eye.Thank the stars that this thing shoot as well as it does.I am a very good shooter and know what i expect out of a rifle.All i have had to do to improve on the whisper is put a Centerpoint 4x16x40 scope on it and i am shooting 1-1.5 inch groupes at 30 yards..Not bad for left handed . Thanks Airgundepot and all of you foulks for the info!!!

first kill. first shot
March 15, 2009
This gun is amazing! with my first shot I killed my first rabbit! That critter never saw it commin!I reccomend taking off the scope, it is to hard to zero in. But overall great gun also it is quiet!!
March 12, 2009
I bought the .22cal Gamo Whisper with the fiber optic sights and scope. I love this rifle. It shoots great and is a super value for the $$$ Because it is a "springer" air rifle...there is some noise from the chamber/spring internally but is very quiet at the muzzle.... I shoot mine from my basement window and any noise is the spring inside the action while there is very little noise from the pellet blast.... AWESOME....

This is a fantastic gun. Great for people limited by space and neighboors. Good for suburbs and remote areas alike. VERY quite, accurate, good for teenagers and adults. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. If your not sure, let me tell you BUY IT. you will not regret it for a second. If your not looking to kill animals, this is a GREAT plinking/target shooting gun. great value for the money as well. my ONLY problem with it is the trigger. but don't fret. just spend a bit more and buy a nicer trigger. Enjoy!
February 22, 2009
this is an awesome gun. I recommend flatnosed pellets for shooting in your backyard and PBA pellets in the field
By Conel R.
February 4, 2009
Liked overall appearance and quality of the rifle. Horrible trigger must be changed to CDT and then you can get down to some serious work. My rifle is ammo sensitive so you will probably need to try various pellets. Mine is very accurate with heavier pellets and less so as pellets get lighter. Scope is very good and performs as expected. Be sure to lock it down to lower rail. Silencer is quieter, but not quiet. All in all an excellent value! 5 squirrels and 1 crow the first week.

I had 2 problems, Gamo Whisper solved both. 1. live in suburbs in large city. 2. Insane redbird has been flying into and pecking window for 9 solid months, all day long, and not just one window, but 5 different windows, driving me and my wife crazy. Normally they peck for a couple days, and get over it, but this bird is insane. Ordered Gamo Whisper in 22 caliber, and some gammo lead pellets, as well as some other brands to compare. Arrived in a nice annomous box, wife and mother none the wiser. Gammo lead heavy pellets were the best, Kodiac extra heavy pellets were way off. Sighted scope last night in at 10 yards in my basement, took about 20 shots, the last three went through the same hole, I can drive nails with this rifle at 7 to 10 yards with the scope. Pellets were almost going through a 1/2 inch plywood after a layer of carboard. Gun is very quiet, except when the pellets hits. Shooting from inside the house out a window sniper style, completely quiet. This morning, I opened a window just enough to get a shot through and when the insane bird started smashing into the window, I sighted in and blasted a hole through the bird, killed it instantly with a high chest shot, could have taken its head off, but I wanted to be sure. The 22 pellet was rattling against my backstop fence 30 yards away, went throught the bird like it wasn't there. Problems solved, neighbors none the wiser. Now, chapter two....I have some tree rat problems....they kill the baby songbirds in the nest, but not this year...to be continued.
Excellent Pellet Rifle!!
January 24, 2009
I'm extremely pleased with my .22 cal Gamo Whisper. Got this baby for pest control (damn birds!) and got rid of them thanks to this rifle. Very accurate (excellent grouping all the time), extremely powerful (awesome knock-down power!), and pretty quite. My neighbors are still wondering what happened to the birds... I told them is the climate change. :) I don't know why people are complaining about its trigger; it's alright as it is. Trust me, this is a good investment. Get some RSW Superdome pellets with this puppy too!!

this gun was amazing i got it out of the box and shot a fox, 2 squirrls, and a rabbit great hunting gun man im a beast with it like any gun. well im a pro.
November 25, 2008
Having had the Whisper .22 for some months I can give it a big two thumbs up. After installing the scope I put the third pellet thru the second pellet`s hole at60 ft. I can always get a 1" group at 60'. I did replace the original trigger with a smoother CDT replacement which I highly recommend. That said the squirrels in my back yard hav`nt a chance, it puts them down right NOW. After testing many different brands of pellets I am convinced that the Beeman Kodiak Heavy is the most accurate of the lot......... not to mention the most carrying power. It`s subsonic so it`s ultra quiet. The range and accuracy improvement over other pellets is astonishing. This is a great gun for the money.........it`s a no-brainer.
