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.
