Two New SWARMS Perfect for Plinking and Small-Game Hunting

GAMO Precision Airguns introduced two new gas-piston-powered, 10-shot autoloading air rifles during 2020 – the super-fast Swarm Magnum and the original Swarm Maxxim – each in Generation 2 of the industry changing Swarm technology. Gamo’s Swarm Technology revolutionized the air rifle industry by using a 10-shot magazine – just break the barrel and shoot. No more fumbling around for another pellet to reload those tired single-shot air rifles. Load 10 pellets into the magazine, snap it in place and shoot.
