Gamo Whisper X – Air Gun Review

IMAG1040

Gamo Whisper X is a mid-range classy air-gun which has hit our markets, big time. Before Gamo, there was only Diana air guns in Pakistan. While there is no doubt about the quality of Diana air guns Gamo is an inexpensive alternative for gun enthusiasts, specially in Pakistan. I have seen a number of Gamo guns, all with synthetic stocks. So its a change from the traditional Diana with wooden stocks, besides giving an impressive look.

Specs.

Length: 117 cms
Caliber: .22/.177 (The gun being reviewed is .22)
Weight: 6.5 lbs
Fluted Barrel
Noise Dampener
Adjustable two stage trigger
Cocking safety, Trigger safety
Fiber Glass ambidextrous stock, with checkering
Fiber optic sights
Adjustable rear sights and scope rails
Muzzle Velocity .22 – 722 fps, .177 – 1000 fps

IMAG1049

See the fiber optic front sight and noise dampener.

IMAG1050

The barrel is fluted. This means less material is used and it prevents over heating.

IMAG1055

The grip is very good.

IMAG1060

The safety is placed in front of trigger so it can be easily dis-engaged with the firing finger.

IMAG1062

The trigger can be set to ones liking by adjusting a small screw.

IMAG1110

I like the ergonomics of this gun.

IMAG1121

It has a very natural grip.

Observe the cheek rest and the Gamo logo.

It comes with two extra fiber optic sights.

Gamo Whisper X is a break barrel rifle.

S6301353

I mounted a cope on it.

S6301355

Here’s a close up of the rifle with scope mounted on it. Gamo Whisper X, .22 Air Gun, with 2-5 x 40 Hubertus scope.

Gamo

I shot this target from 25 M with a 2-5 x 40 Hubertus scope, and Gamo match pellets.

Gamo Whisper X is a pretty accurate rifle. It is available in Pakistan around Rs 20,000. It is light weight and has all the features of a good rifle. I think it offers good value for money.

    1. Dear Salahuddin it depends on which city you are buying it from. Rates are lowest in Peshawar, then Pindi and Lahore and finally Karachi is the most expensive. I think you should not pay more than Rs 23,000 for this rifle.

        sir is it a good air rifle for hunting doves n pigeons?
        I m already using Gamo shadow 1000, it was great when I purchased it but after using it for 4 years now I want to update.

        so may I buy whisper X .22?
        mean will it be suitable for hunting?

      2. I think in terms of muzzle velocity it is at par with Gamo Shadow 1000. But it has a dampener and much better grip/ergonomics. I would suggest that buy its original scope if you can. It might cost you a little more say Rs 6000 but the results would be good. It is a good air rifle for hunting doves and pigeons.

    1. Walekum as Salam,
      Gamo Whisper is a good air gun cosnidering its specs and price range.
      Here’s the reply.
      1. Range depends on Muzzle Velocity or simply the power. Its MV isn’t very great. Don’t expect beyond 30 – 40 yards. If you want range go for .22 LR Rifle. Air guns were never designed for long range. The highest would be a Diana Air King (If you can find one, but it is expensive 45 to 50 k or more).
      2. I would recommend a Gamo scope, rather than some cheap Chinese one.
      3. You can hunt pigeons and doves with it. Rabbits if you are lucky to take a head shot. But ducks , no way.
      4. Go for Diana 35, or Diana Panther should cost you around Rs 30 – 35k.
      Best wishes.

    1. Many thanks for liking my post. I believe any pellet can be used for hunting doves, but when you want precision and “one shot kill” then always go for the best. Please read this range report on a very friendly gun forum, it highly recommends Gamo Pro Magnum. Your Gamo Shodow has to be .22, isn’t it?

    1. Hello Shakir,
      with Air guns you can only hunt small game like pigeons, doves or rabbits. If you can afford go for a Diana. Something like Diana 35 Model. It is a good gun. In Air Guns Muzzle velocity (MV) defines the power of the rifle. If you can get a gun that has 700 foot per second or above MV, go for it. Diana will be a little costly as compared to Gamo. Gamo Shadow 1000, or Gamo Whisper X should cost between 18,000 to 20,000. For Diana add 5 to 7000 more. And a telescope will cost you extra money. Search the Internet for various models of Diana and Gamo looking at their specs (specially MV). Then make your choice. Depending on which city you are located, the price may vary. Best wishes, 🙂

  11. Sir it would be much appreciated if you could shed some light on the carrying or movement of air rifles within the country. For example what are my rights being an owner and in possession of an air rifle lets say with me in my car and being stopped at a check point or something. (I live in Islamabad).

    Also do i need a hunting license to hunt with my air rifle?

    Like

    1. In Pakistan you do not need any license for an Air Gun. But with hindsight I say it is better not to carry an air gun in your car openly. I mean you can place it in the boot or even under the seat. Some air guns are now shaped like automatic weapons or even sniper rifles, so why take a risk. I don’t think you need a hunting license for Air gun. I haven’t heard of one.

    1. Dear, I am not sure about any fake Gamo. If you have seen any please share details. Normally Gamo has a small user manual inside it. The packing is a card board box. Other than this it is a good quality gun which I think local craftsmen cannot make. Also it is a synthetic stock, which local gun makers cannot make.

        minimum I am expecting for an air ranger is at least 60k.

    1. Which birds are prohibited in our region for hunting.
    2. Where can I find wild hare for hunting.
    3. Is there any hunters association in Lahore to join for experience sharing.

    There are a lot of more questions but will share with you next time.

    Thank you and regards.

    1. There is no best. It all depends on you. However, you can make a comparison based on muzzle velocity. If the MV is more it means the gun is more powerful and will be able to hit the target at a greater distance.
