Gamo Whisper: New airgun with suppressor

Game have a new line of spring powered airguns with integrated suppressors.

They do not use the word “suppressor” which I find odd. Instead they call it “ND25 Noise Reduction Technology”… A suppressor by any other name.

The Whisper is a single cock break barrel action with a rifled steel, fluted bull barrel and an integral, non-removable noise dampener that reduces noise up to 52 percent. 2-stage adjustable trigger and automatic cocking safety with manual trigger safety. Fiber-optic front and rear adjustable sights. Includes 3-9×40 scope with a 1-piece solid mount. .177 caliber shoots 1200 fps with PBA ammo or 1000 fps with lead pellets. Weight: 5.28 lbs. Length: 43.5″.

    Silencers/suppressors in the U.K. and Europe in general are subject to a bewildering variety of regulations. In the part of the U.K. in which I live they are freely available, widely used yet strictly illegal without a variation to your firearms license but I know of not one person who has such a variation. I also do not know of anyone who has ever had trouble over using one.
    Gamo's use of the NRT nomenclature would appear to be a way of selling this gun in markets that frown on 'silencers'.
