Oftentimes, the air riffle industry comes up with products that are not at par with the expectations of their market. There can be limitations that hunting enthusiasts have to deal with such as cold weather conditions and haphazard designs that create too much noise. What Gamo has made in order to meet these demands is to release the Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper IGT Air Rifle.
The Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper is not your typical air rifle as you can use this in several hunting conditions. Regardless if it is a hot or cold weather, you can rely on this engineering marvel. During cold seasons, it is common for hunting enthusiasts to take the spring gun to the shelves for a while. Low temperatures cause the grease on the spring to thicken making the air rifles jam.
What Gamo did was simply amazing, as they brought to the fore the Inert Gas technology that increases the overall reliability of the air gun. Aside from the fact that you can use the Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper during the cold weather, the ND52 noise dampening system decreases the noise generated by the air rifle by as much as 52% compared to other kinds of spring guns.
To evaluate the .177 caliber Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper objectively, it is a good idea to take a look at the pros and cons. Here are some things you could expect from this marvelous piece of engineering.
Pros and Cons
In terms of looks, who wouldn’t like the overall aesthetics of this air rifle? Sleek and very professional looking is the first impression you will get from this product by Gamo. It makes use of a synthetic stock that fits both right and left-handed individuals. The material used for the air rifle makes this piece of equipment perfect for the outdoors.
For the trigger mechanism, it comes with a two-stage trigger plus a shockwave absorption system that can take out the recoil of your shots by as much as 74%. Each shot can generate 1300 FPS for a .177 PBA platinum pellet. For the .22 caliber PBA platinum pellets, the manufacturer claims a speed of 975 FPS. It is also fairly powerful as it generates a muzzle of 17.6 and 20.5 FPE for .177 and .22 caliber models respectively.
So what’s not to like about this piece of machinery? If you are expecting a hig- quality scope that is somewhat on the same level as the overall construction of the air rifle, prepare to be disappointed. The 3-9×40 adjustable scope is not what you’ll expect from a product that has made a tremendous amount of hype worldwide.
Aside from the fact that it doesn’t have the necessary scope to match its overall quality, the price is also a bit high. Pegged between $250 to $300, it is something that can hurt your wallet. Overall, however, it is worth it. Accuracy, durability, not to mention the engineering marvel you can expect from the Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper air rifle, all make a good deal despite the price.
