Gamo Whisper G2

The Gamo Whisper is one of the most popular break-barrel air guns. Piston-powered air guns can be noisy, the Whisper range incorporates a suppressor to cut down on noise. Gamo has just updated the Whisper and launched the Whisper G2. This new air gun improves on the wildly popular original by adding a better trigger (don’t get me started on the poor triggers sound on air guns), an adjustable cheek piece and a ‘Turbo Stabilizing System’ which brings the internal piston spring to a controlled stop.

From the press release …

The second generation Whisper™ air rifle features the latest in Gamo technology — the Turbo Stabilizing System™. Designed to control the aggressiveness of the firing cycle — it brings the spring to a controlled stop within the chamber – adding more velocity, decreasing vibration, thus reducing recoil. The Whisper G2™ line also offers the exclusive Whisper™ technology making the shot nearly undetectable to pesky varmints, Smooth Action Trigger (SAT™), Shock Wave Absorber (SWA™) and adjustable cheek rest making it a must-have for any serious varmint hunter. Answering to consumer needs, the new Whisper G2™ also features .177 Cal and .22 Cal versions and a 4×32 rifle scope.

The Whisper G2™ shoots up to 1275 FPS in .177 with PBA® platinum ammunition, while it shoots 975 FPS in .22 with the same ammunition. The Whisper G2™ feature Gamo’s patented SAT™ (Smooth Action Trigger) – a new crisp and creep free trigger, the new recoil pad SWA™ (Shock Wave Absorber™) – able to absorb the recoil up to 74%, and adjustable cheek rest, to be precisely fitted to an individual body type, shooting style and optical sight adjustment.

The Whisper G2™ INCLUDES:
– Turbo Stabilizing System™ Technology.
– Whisper™ Technology.
– Fluted polymer jacketed rifled steel barrel
– Rubberized grips
– New all-weather black stock with adjustable cheek piece
– Fiber optic front and rear sights
– Smooth Action Trigger (SAT™)
– Shock Wave Absorber (SWA™)
– 4×32 Scope

The rifle is selling for around $209 (depending on options). I hope we can do a review on this gun soon.

  • dracphelan

    I’m interested in this. I wonder how much they will go for.

  • kipy

    I feel like their trolling with the 74% less recoil thing lol. Not alot of bruised shoulder problems with pellet guns.

      Spring air rifles have different recoil from firearms. It results when the piston and spring slam on the forward face of the cylinder. It does not bother the shooter much, but it does affect accuracy, and most importantly, it wrecks scopes. That’s because the recoil is mostly directed forward, and almost all scopes are designed to take normal, backward recoil, but not strong forward shocks. Even scopes that may be safe on a .223 or .243 rifles will lose zero, or even fall apart after a few hundred shots on a powerful spring airguns.

        Very true, a relatively high powered spring powered air rifle really is a different sort of beast which is very sensitive to the way it is held and requires a good deal of practice to shoot accurately.

  • gunslinger

    so i guess since airguns arent firearms, the suppressor for them isn’t covered under NFA?

    never got much into air guns
