Gamo's original Whisper air rifle was an incredible rifle that just about took over the spring gun market. It's hard to believe they could improve it, but they did! The Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper is an engineering wonder because of Gamo's IGT gas spring. The Inert Gas Technology makes the Silent Stalker Whisper a superior hunting machine that performs reliably in any weather, under any condition and for years without any maintenance. Spring guns are notorious for not performing well in very cold weather. Guns with metal mainsprings have tar and lube on the springs. The greases thicken when the temperature goes real low. A gas spring, on the other hand, needs no lube. Therefore, it won't have any of the problems experienced by springers. Besides the gas spring, Gamo's Silent Stalker Whisper has the same ND52 technology found in the rest of the Whisper series. ND52 is a noise dampening system that permanently fits on the muzzle and decreases the report (noise) by 52% over springers without the system

wow
July 2, 2014
I purchased this air rife because I wanted a powerful .22 without breaking the bank. Upon firing this air rifle I was immediately impressed. The power and accuracy of this air piston rifle had me feeling like they should be charging way more for it! I was hesitant to purchase it based on some items I was seeing in reviews, but decided to take a chance on it. The main complaints I found regarded (1) accuracy issues, (2) scope issues, and (3) the stock. First, I found the rifle to be very accurate. Plus, for a $250.00 air rifle, I found the sites be be outstanding. After about 20 minutes I was firing from a little over 10 meters into quarter sized shot groups. I feel that the complaints are probably mostly stemming from user error. Like shooting any weapon, one most not hold the rife with too much pressure. This is even more important when considering the physics of it. It relies on a charge of air being released to provide propulsion. There is no way that an air rifle can ever deliver this with as much immediate impact as gun powder. If you are holding with a death grip, there is no way to get through the trigger pull and the considerable recoil and still hold it precisely on target. When I found my shot groups begin to spread, I was making this error. Once relaxing I was back to being accurate. Second, the scope is fine. The problem I found was with the mounting bar they added to the rifle. I guess they thought the mounting bar would make it easier to install the scope, but perhaps they failed to realize it was effecting the alignment. I simply could not get the scope to zero until I removed the mounting bar and fixed the scope directly to rails on the rife (this will make sense when you see it). After that I found it very easy to zero and I like the scope (especially considering the price). Third, the main complaint people have with the stock is that the opening is too small for individuals with large hands. As someone with large hands, I did notice that as well. However, it is not necessary put your thumb completely through the opening. In fact, only placing about half of your thumb through the opening helps promote a lighter grip which should make you a more accurate shooter. This will be a great air rifle for anyone who want to hunt small game or control pests. Due to its light weight I would also recommend it as part of a SHTF Plan.
Pros:
price, power, sites, nice trigger pull, gas piston technology works fantastic so far, doesn't require a lot strength to charge the rifle.
Cons:
Not sure it is a Con because it is on par with other rifles in the sound department (based on test numbers I looked at), but it is definitely not "silent" nor does it "whisper." It is certainly loud enough to piss off close neighbors. If you are looking for just a backyard plinker this may not be for you. All air rifles should be treated as any other rifle, but air rifles such as this deserve an extra layer of caution. It is capable of putting a pellet through a wood fence and into the neighbors yard. The scope mounting bar (or whatever one would call it) does not seem to serve an adequate purpose and I recommend it be removed before mounting the scope direct.

Pretty good gun
April 6, 2014
This gun is a great gun for targets. I can shoot a quarter sized group at 20 yards with it. But I can not kill a bird with it to save my life.
Pros:
Shoots smooth, velocity
Cons:
Makes a weird noise when shot

Great Gun & Having Fun
March 3, 2014
Read plenty of reviews and did the typical "YouTube" research before purchasing this set-up. First of all, I'm very pleased with Airgun Depot's price, shipping, and service. The gun was delivered in three days as promised. The scope was easily mounted and within a less than an hour I was zeroed in at 10 yards hitting dime sized groups (Friday night in my basement). As an air gun novice, I was extremely pleased to exterminate five squirrels within my first three days of owning this gun. So why is this only a four star review? The packaged scope is less than desirable (if sold separately the scope would be stockpiled). Less than 50 pellets though the gun and the scope reticle is not securely fixed within the scope (spins freely on it's own). Luckily, the center point of the reticle is still dead accurate. I would still pay full price for the gun without the scope, it's got plenty of power and is fairly quiet. Airgun Depot will gladly replace the package but I'm far to happy with gun to worry about a scope that would have probably been replaced anyhow.
Pros:
Overall Value, Accuracy, Power, Stealth, Stock will not devalue with bumps or scrapes!
Cons:
Packaged SCOPE

Very happy with this gun.
November 26, 2013
I have had none of the problems that I read about in the reviews. There was a complaint about the pivot pin for the break barrel having play and that contributing to inaccuracy. My pivot pin is very tight and I am making consistent patterns at 70 feet. There are complaints about the optics, and yes there are better optics, but what comes with the gun are usable and you can upgrade later. I've been primarily a firearm shooter through my life and lesser recently due to the price of ammo. This is my first air rifle. This rifle has put the fun back into target shooting for me without worrying about how much each shot costs.
Pros:
Very quiet. Well at least compared to lighting off a .38 cal in the yard which is my only point of reference. I think the gun is well made and have not detected any quality problems.
Cons:
Could use an attach point for a sling.

Great Gun if you've got the time to put in it!
April 2, 2013
Bought this about 5 months ago. Out of the box, it hit erratically, but that's to be expected. Mine settled out at around 300-400 rounds. The silencer did absolutely nothing so I removed it with a band saw and end milled it to make sure there wasn't an uneven cut. The scope Gamo provided is crud and I spent collectively 20 hours re-adjusting, tightening, positioning and sighting it in. Do not use it until you've put a tin or 2 through this gun!!!! Loctite your screws down if your going to keep this scope, or just buy a better one with a better mount. The stock is a bit weird, so I cut parts off it so it's just like a tactical dovetail now. It's very light, and with Tomahawk pellets I hit 100 yards moderately accurately. Grouping is at 50 and that's about it for distance groups. Hits wicked hard. For birds, I suggest hollow-points and domes, anything tipped will blow right through them. Very nice gun if you have the time to put in it!
Pros:
Very light Comfortable grip Manageable recoil Very accurate Hits hard with domes/hollowpoints
Cons:
Pretty loud with 7.9gr pellets Stock design is weird. Silencer does nothing No stopping power with tipped pellets (but way more accurate) Be ready for a long break-in and get a new scope

Accurate, Light, Nice Gun!
June 2, 2012
I first ordered a Gamo Silent Stalker and when i received it was Dead on Arrival. I sent it back and got the Whisper. Everyone says the scope is not accurate. I disagree. It has been far more accurate then my Ruger Air Hawk and NPSS Remington. This gun is also lighter then the last two guns i just mentioned which is perfect for someone who hunts and don't want to carry the weight. The gun weighs 7 pounds with the scope and my centerpoint laser and light which makes it nice to hunt with at night. My NPSS weight 11 pounds with the same stuff. So your saving 4 pounds with this gun which is a lot while hunting. Out of the box this gun almost his a bulls eye. I zeroed it in to RMS field pellets and hit 6 bulls eyes 30 yards away. Use the RMS instead of the crossman premier hollowpoints because they will do far more damage to a raccoon or possum. The PBA pellets hit more accurate at 50 yards. Gun's not bad im happy however Airgun Depot was a pain to deal with about having to return the gun. Any who, buy this gun you will really like it. Oh and the trigger is awesome only 2 1/2 pounds very light compared to the NPSS. The NPSS has a cheap trigger and i did not like it at 7 pounds.
Pros:
Accurate Light Gun only weighs 5 pounds! Stylish Nice Glo Sights Trigger is light. 2 1/2 pounds
Cons:
Sometimes while cocking makes a weird noise but smooth on the most part Wish the scope was a bit lighter Stock should have been a little lighter also Gun didn't have enough grease on the inside so i had to take it apart and lube it up.

Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper .22
January 1, 2012
I purchased this air rifle with 3x9 scope and carrying case from AirgunDepot.com. After scope installation I began the zeroing process, shooting lead pellets into a paper target at a range of 45'. The peculiar recoil dynamics of the Gamo make it very difficult to hold steady at the point of trigger release, and the adjustable trigger remains mostly atrocious despite all efforts. As an added hindrance to trigger adjustment, the access hole made into the underside of the plastic trigger guard was not inline with the trigger adjustment screw, necessitating that I drill a second hole, after which a small Phillips screwdriver was able to gain access without stripping the screw's shoulders. Despite my efforts, however, no amount of counter-clockwise turning of the screw made a noticeable effect on trigger-pull; turning clockwise merely causes the screw to come to a stop. Despite my years of experience, the Gamo proved impossible to fire accurately by any standard, placing the shots into a wild and patternless, random array. Uncalled fliers are just as likely to shoot high and right as low and left, or any combination thereof. There is no element of predictability. In plain language, the Gamo shoots all over the paper; it is virtually impossible to achieve zero under such a circumstance whether using a scope or not, because the barrel on this Gamo never puts the pellet into the same place twice. That's the bottom line. As an added precaution re scope mounting, know this: I'd removed the Gamo 3x9 scope that came with the gun thinking the scope may be suffering from terminal "crosswalk". . . and replaced it with a Leupold Vari-X 3 Series scope with parallax-adjustable objective bell. The twin tipoff mounts already installed on the scope following removal from another gun were screwed down as tight as I dared onto the Gamo's rail, and yet the scope still slid back on the rail under recoil, approximately 1/8" for each shot. . . . That will give the reader some idea of the type spring-whumpf this Gamo puts out. I have written the Gamo off as woefully inaccurate, if reliable, and will give it away to a young, responsible person who wants to learn the rudiments of firearms safety and marksmanship. It had been my original intent to use the Gamo for hunting but now, in light of the accuracy problem I know that it would never do to hunt with this particular air rifle out of respect for the animals that may be wounded and suffer. IMHO, the Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper .22 is more a novelty than a serious air rifle, and is neither suitable for target shooting, which requires good accuracy, nor hunting.
Pros:
I feel that the velocity is substantial given the rifle's mild report. If accurate, this Gamo would make a decent hunter. Overall appearance of the Gamo SS Whisper is very good, with metal surfaces mirror-finished and the synthetic stock well made. It is impressive looking.
Cons:
The rifle's inaccuracy; having to handle lead pellets (sans applicator one should wear a surgical glove on the master hand); violent recoil dynamic; hokey trigger adjustment

Great Gun, if you follow a few rules
November 14, 2011
Received the in perfect shape and on time. No issues with AirgunDepot's shipping and support. As for this gun...It's a great gun and accurate if you do a few things. 1) Find the right pellet. I tested over 10 different brands and found that the H&N FTT and the Crosman Premier (in box ONLY) as the most accurate. I get dime sized groups at 15-20 yards, and quarter sized groups at 30 yards. 2) The stock scope, that I received was defective. It was over 40 minutes off angle and required the front of the scope to be shimmed. I returned it directly to Gamo, and they replaced it no problem. however, I did not care for the scope to begin with anyway and purchased a Leapers 3-9x40 AO scope. The stock scope is not AO and I found it difficult to have a sharp focus over my range of needs. Also, the parallax was not good. I have not tried the returned scope, and keep it as backup, as I prefer the Leapers now. 3) Really check all of the screws, particularly the scope mounts and stop screws. This gun eats up the mounts and stop holes. 4) Also, an other reviewer had found that his barrel was loose and drastically effected accuracy. Mine was fine, but you should first check that the barrel hinge is tight and the barrel does not move or shake around when in position. Mine was fine, but return it immediately for a replacement, as this is not easily fixed by yourself. 5) Contrary to a lot of others, I found that this Gamo trigger is pretty good. I actually replaced mine with the GRT-4G and did NOT find a huge difference. It does have a pretty hard pull force, but the new GRT-4G makes the release point a little more predictable, but not substantially, so a mod like this is not absolutely necessary. You might have different results than me. 6) For me, I found that the "artillery hold" was not the best. I actually hold the stock tight against my shoulder, rather than loosely, to get the best groupings. I will be investing in a better scope mount, as this gun really eats the stock one up. I changed my mount screws a couple times so far, as I have to re-tighten regularly. LocTite is probably a good idea on this gun. Also, this gun DOES NOT fire at 975 fps. Other reviewers have confirmed this. It is more around 670 fps, with the H&N FTT. But this is really no problem since this is still 12 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle, and plenty for varmint hunting. In fact, many believe that the 600-700 fps area is ideal for good accuracy for this type of gun, so this should not necessarily be considered an issue. Just don't expect 975 fps from this gun. Overall, if you are looking for a 0.22 pellet gun that has pretty good accuracy in the <30 yard range with adequate energy for varmint hunting, I find it very adequate. You just need to make sure that your base-line system is working well, i.e. check that barrel for any looseness. Then, consider a new scope and mounts, and you are good to go.
Pros:
Accuracy in the 15-30 yard range, with the right pellets (H&N FTT, Crosman Premiers (in box)). Power
Cons:
Did not like the stock scope. No AO and my first scope was defective. Do not like the stock scope mounts. This gun has a lot of kick and needs much better mounts to keep the scope from moving.

Q&A
By steve from MA on November 30, 2011
I have a whisper springer,it is not quiet,is it quiter w/ igt?
By Staff on December 7, 2011

Answer:
SInce IGT uses compressed gas instead of a spring you lose a lot of the twang noise associated with spring guns.

However, if you are shooting light alloy pellets they are going to break the sound barrier and will cause a crack when the pellet breaks the speed of sound.
By Tony from Madison on December 6, 2011

Answer:
Yes it it quieter with IGT technology.
By Carter from Sunnyside, WA on February 11, 2012

Answer:
It is a lot quieter with the IGT tech.
By Carter from Washington on February 14, 2012

Answer:
It is very quiet compared to your whisperer.

By tank from Laplace, LA on April 5, 2012
Where dose the inert gas come from? Is there some sort extra cartridge needed to supply the inert gas and where do you buy this, if so?
By Staff on April 6, 2012

Answer:
The gun has a pump (single pump break barrel) that supplies the power for the gun. No extra cartridge is required.

Can I go hunting with this gun? Only for small animals, like game hen, turkey, rabit.....
By Charlie from blountville TN on January 7, 2012

Answer:
i would think that a turkey would not get close enough for the gun to be effective ...but rabbits or squrrels might be hunted with this air rifle
By Game Hunter from Texas on January 8, 2012

Answer:
Where legal, absolutely. Check your local, state and federal game laws regarding the use of an air rifle for certain species and during the appropriate seasons, and realize the velocity of the round will fall off with distance to the target; so to keep higher velocity make sure your target distance does not exceed 30 yards or so.

By David from Glastonbury, CT on January 9, 2012

Answer:
From what I have read...Yes. Although I have not personally brought down a hen, turkey or rabbit yet. You can get around 11-12 ft-lbs of stopping energy at 30 yds, enough to bring down small game. My favorite pellet with this gun is the H&N FTT or the Crosman Premiers (in box).
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 8, 2012

Answer:
Yes you can, but I wouldn't go for the turkeys....they are kinda big for this gun....unless you can get really close.
By Carter from Washington on February 11, 2012

Answer:
Yes, this gun will suit you fine.
By Carter from Washington on February 14, 2012

Answer:
Everything but the turkey unless you are close is fine to take with this gun.

By Avesh from South Africa, Durban on November 16, 2011
Hi

Is this really a Whisper IGT rifle? the rifle looks a bit different, I am from South Africa. Also can you user .177 calibre pellets?
By David from Glastonbury, CT on November 23, 2011

Answer:
Yes, this is an IGT 0.22 cal gun. It cannot use 0.177 cal pellets. You must use 0.22 cal. I suggest using Crosman Premier (in box), or H&N FTT for this gun.
By Steven from California on November 23, 2011

Answer:
Yes the rifle pictured is the Whisper IGT in .22 cal you can not shoot .177 pellets through it. Gamo does make the same rifle chambered in .177 if that is what you are looking for. I would highly recommend this rife. The two stage trigger is a huge improvement over older models.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 8, 2012

Answer:
This is an .22 cal air rifle. Use only .22 pellets, not .22 lr bullets. Pellets only.

By Tyson from San Diego, California on July 17, 2012
I live in a suburban area where the houses are VERY close. Either way I love guns and I would love to have another. Is this gun quiet enough to shoot in a garage or very small backyard without having the police called by neighbors? If not, which guns would be? I was also looking into the Benjamin Trail NP XL 1100 .22 and I don't know if either would make the cut. Help would be GREATLY appreciated.

By fuzzysnowman from cc tx on August 17, 2012

Answer:
they are both great guns and its really all coming down to the 1 iron sights 2 stock material 3 speed
the gamo has iron sights, the trail has none. the gamo has a plastic stock thats hollow, the trail is walnut. the gamo has a faster speed, but alloy pellets tend to be inaccurate. i would personally go with the trail, cause of the nicer stalk, and fully shoureded barrel.lastly the trail is slightly quieter, the overall sound length is shorter than the gamo.
