GAMO, maker of precision air rifles, is coming out with a new MACH 1 rifle featuring improved technology. GAMO can trace their roots all the way back to the 1880s, when they were known as Antonio Casas and based out of Barcelona, Spain. In the 20th century the company turned their focus to lead products, with the production of quality air gun pellets being their goal. Air rifle production itself did not begin until midway through the 20th century, but once they were being manufactured their popularity grew and exportation began.

Air rifles have a wide range of uses from target practice to hunting, and GAMO has worked hard to create an enhanced model capable of delivering an even greater performance than previous models. Technology being used in this new model was first unveiled in Vegas last January at SHOT Show 2015. The new MACH 1 air rifle has a variety of features, which are listed below, that combine to give users a durable rifle that produces higher velocities with less vibration. It’s also designed for ease of use with a better recoil pad for comfort’s sake, easier cocking, and quieter operation overall.

The new model is now available and has an MSRP of $369.95. Take a look online at:

From GAMO:

Gamo® Outdoor USA (, is launching the new Mach 1 Pigman Edition air rifle. The new air rifle features the latest in Gamo technology – the IGT MACH 1™. The MACH 1 replaces the standard spring powerplant with an Inert Gas Cylinder. But the IGT MACH 1’s monster 33 milimeter cylinder delivers more Velocity and Terminal Penetration. The pneumatic cylinder rockets pellets up to 1420 Feet Per Second in .177 Caliber with PBA Platinum Ammo. Not to mention smooth and consistent cocking efforts with constant power delivered to any pellet you fire. The Mach 1 Pigman Edition™ line also offers the exclusive CAT™ (Custom Action Trigger) technology which allows Gamo air rifle owners to be able to independently adjust the 1st and 2nd Stages of their trigger.

This air rifle also features RRR™ (Recoil Reducing Rail) technology, developed to subdue the taxing stresses placed on your scope from the intense recoil of air guns and high-powered rifles by using (patent pending), two-piece aluminum construction separated by dual polymer struts to absorb shockwaves. Once mounted to the Recoil Reducing Rail, the recoil stresses to internal components of the scope are reduced by almost 100%. All these technologies combined make this air rifle a must-have for any serious varmint hunter. Answering to consumer needs, the new Mach 1 Pigman Edition™ also features .177 Cal and .22 Cal versions and a 3-9×40 rifle scope.

The Mach 1 Pigman Edition™ shoots up to 1420 FPS in .177 with PBA® platinum ammunition, while it shoots 1020 FPS in .22 with the same ammunition. The Mach 1 Pigman Edition features the Whisper Fusion technology developed exclusively by Gamo®, this new remarkably quiet air rifle includes the latest noise dampening technology that has been integrated into the steel barrel. Compared to standard air rifles, noise is reduced by up to 89.5% using this new technology, the new recoil pad SWA™ (Shock Wave Absorber™) – able to absorb the recoil up to 74%, and a thin cheekpad molded on each side for both Right hand and Left hand shooters

    This read annoyingly like an advertisement, though I’m sure it’s a good product. I am not part of the Gamo hate crowd as I am quite happy with my Whisper G2. Incredibly accurate with zero cleaning; the only thing holding it back is the scope, and that’s on me for being cheap. Breakbarrel single-shots are stupid-easy to use and everyone should own one.

      Are you new here? The “A” stands for “advertising copy.”

      The only thing that annoys me about this site is when people post complaints about the content all over the comments. It’s a blog. It exists as a means of aggregating content found elsewhere. You read it free of charge. It’s here to provoke conversation. I’m glad I saw this post, because I learned about a new air rifle. Maybe some experienced air gun people can now weigh in and share their knowledge. But first I have to sift through people criticizing the writing style of every post on the site. It’s getting old.

      It should have read that way, the majority of the the post was the press release from GAMO.

  • Herr Wolf

    Sounds nice- the switch from spring to gas is a good idea. .22 pellets are a cheap and fun way to practice with the dearth of .22 ammo

  • Porty1119

    I really don’t understand the idea behind a 1420fps .177. At that point, transonic turbulence will destroy the rifle’s accuracy. If the idea is to increase muzzle energy, that is more easily achieved by increasing to .22. This is just designed to sell based on its velocity.

    Don’t even get me started on alloy pellets.

    • iksnilol

      It was with alloy pellets, using heavy lead pellets it should remain subsonic.

  • Alex Nicolin

    For that kind of money you can almost get a cheaper PCP rifle, like Benjamin Discovery.

  • Tassiebush

    I have the feeling that one of these would be far more enjoyable than anticipated.
