Gamo Whisper Fusion Review ( Air Rifle)
This is a great air rifle development that I got the chance to acquaint myself at a recent gun show. I wanted to experience the latest and greatest in air rifles, and let me tell you, air rifles have developed a lot since I was a kid. And Gamo Whisper Fusion is at the forefront of that technological leap.
One of the main selling points for this air rifle is the Gamo Fusion Whisper technology. The Whisper Technology came around something like 5 years ago, when Gamo developed a system that reduces the noice emitted while shooting with about 50 percent. And with high powered air rifles, that can get really noisy, this is quite something. Now with the Gamo Whisper Fusion, there is an advanced baffling system, that reduces noise even more. With this spring piston airgun, that reaches speeds of more than 1300 feet per second, this is quite nice. The baffling makes the barrel fluted. A pretty cool look actually, once you get used to the fact that your barrel isn’t straight like on most other guns.
Gamo have improved their triggers, that used to be quite heavily criticised in the air rifle enthusiast community. They made a redesign and a reengineering of their old trigger and all of a sudden, Gamo er have great trigger. The trigger is called SAT, it is a 2 step Smooth Action Trigger. All the creep in the old style of Gamo trigger is now gone. This really is the future of trigger technology.
The Gamo Whisper Fusion also has a new and improved recoil pad, that is adjustable in so many ways to enable you to custom fit the recoil pad according to your own personal desires.
This rifle has the raised adjustable cheek piece similar to the one you see in the . It also has a so called “all weather” synthetic stock, that is sturdy and light.
As I said before, the speed of the air rifle is 1300 fps. Now that is insanely fast and powerful. Make sure you use the heaviest .177 pellets you can find, because precision suffers with lighter pellets. Where air rifles that are just slightly slower tip over cans when you shoot at them, the Gamo Whisper Fusion keeps the can upright, but makes a huge exit hole on the other side. This is a guaranteed eco-friendly way for pest control shooting, with a minimum amount of suffering caused.
Speaking of the optics, whereas most air rifle bundles come with bad to average scopes, Gamo have decided to raise the bar a bit, supplying a very nice high quality 3-9×40 air rifle scope that will put your pellets where you aim and last a long time. Of course I haven’t been shooting this rifle for a long time, but the scope really is very nice.
The Gamo Whisper Fusion is a true evolutionary step in air rifle design. Everybody should have one. Great for hunters, great for shooters. It makes you want to shoot a lot more.
