The Gamo Swarm Maxxim air rifle builds upon previous attempts to create a multi-shot break barrel rifle that lives up to its promise.
Customary with many Gamo rifles, the Swarm Maxxim is has a gas-piston powerplant featuring Inert Gas Technology (IGT). This technology will give airgunners up to 1300 fps with only 30 lbs of cocking effort, but the real excitement is in the 10 round Quick Shot rotary-style magazine.
So if you're looking for a break barrel that gives you more shots with less hassle, check out the Gamo Swarm Maxxim air rifle!

Only time will tell if GAMO is right about it being OK to dry this thing after dry firing as many times as I did.
After getting used to the rifle and dialing in scope, I am happy with my purchase
I know from researching it takes 150+ rounds to really season the bore and bed in everything for best accuracy. So far no complaints very happy with my new rifle.
Certainly considering adding a .22 Gamo to my collection. Possibly another swarm Maxxim or the Swarm Magnum. The light weight RWS 6.9grn seem only ok accuracy.
However the H & N Baracuda Hunter Extreme in 9,26 grn this thing really likes.
Gun excels in every situation with the right pellet....
The main downside is that it feels a bit plasticky (because it is) and he stock is kind of ugly and boring. Hopefully Gamo will start putting this repeater system on all their guns so youll be able to choose a wooden stock model and other calibers. I saw a wooden version of this on YouTube for the European market, so AirgunDepot needs to convince Gamo to ship them a few ðŸ˜"
Now I have 11 air rifles, but no Pre-Charged Pneumatics. Recently, I have had some woodpeckers driving me crazy. and when they started pecking holes in my expensive, ornamental trees, I was bothered. Now they think they are musicians as they peck on my rain gutters creating a stupid one note symphony. So I grabbed my 177 Maxim and hit him with my first shot and he fluttered/fell to the ground. I was very glad to have the multi-shot capability so I could quickly cock and shot him in the head to minimize any suffering and ensure his demise. Obviously, it would have taken many extra seconds to manually reload a single shot rifle potentially prolonging a pest's suffering. Although I don't hunt, I would highly recommend this (or any other) multi-shot weapon for hunting.
Very good results with JSB 18.13gr. I will buy another one for my shooting club.
You can not upgrade scope either because it is custom super short.
The high tech loading device worked perfectly.
It will not allow you to load gun with out magazine. It is accurate for $199.
I sighted it in with out scope and it is fun shooting 10 shots so quickly and easily.
very quite and very little recoil for the power.
would have given it a 5-star rating except the scope has a lot to be desired (junk)
a position where I could hit a bullseye at 20 yard. even with the gun in a vice. I had to purchase a different scope. I am waiting for it now. with the right scope I believe it will be a great gun
for all uses. definitely get a couple of extra magazines, they are really convenient.
I think it's brilliant, we are plagued by a plague of Iguanas in South Florida - thanks pet lovers! who release all manner of species for the rest of mankind to clean up!! Retards!!
I regularly knock off ten at a time thanks to the rotary pellet holder. Need help though as these pests breed 40 young a year!! Yes, 40 each year......awaiting a Gatling version....
I knew that I must sight the scope as soon as I made my first ten shots to a target tin can about seven yards away, because I did not make a hit.
I went to youtube to learn how to sight air rifle scopes. When I set a target with a cross mark 20 yards away, I found that shots were about 8 inches low. I then turned the elevation up by 180 degrees and made another shot. My hit was still about 4 inches down. Then I made another 180 degrees adjustment to the elevation, and made another shot. I hit the bulls-eye. I made more shots and they were all bulls eyes. Grouping within a penny. I did not have to make any adjustment to the windage. Long story short, sighting of the scope was a breeze.
I am a small person and the rifle being 7 pounds is heavy for me. To break the barrel, I must put the butt on the floor and use my weight to bend it. The problem is not the rifle but me. Still I am a happy person for choosing the Gamo Swarm. It is very accurate and the noise is silent enough for the neighbors to hear.
I plan to use the rifle for target shooting only. I cannot bear to use it to shoot or kill any creature, pest or pet.
I wish I had bought more magazines when I bought the rifle to save on shipping. I go through one load of the magazine very fast. Ten shots is not that much. If I have five magazines, I think I will enjoy the rifle five times more.
