Before getting your air rifle to have a look at the Gamo Swarm Maxxim review and find the features of your desires-

Gamo’s IGT, or Inert Gas Technology Piston Pellets

Gamo Swarm Maxxim is a gas-piston air rifle coming with the latest inert gas technology. Gamo IGT System (Inert Gas Technology) is the pressure technique for the pneumatic and sealed air rifle that replaces the customary spring with a gas piston. The appearance and use are equivalent to Gamo high-control compressed air rifles. A gas piston triggers these rifles. Compression spring is not used here. These rifles give a different firing sensation with smooth firing cycle and less vibration. It can provide an experience of smooth shooting with plenty of power and no buzz, twisting or twang. Moreover, it won’t lose power in the cold water.


Speed and Accuracy

The Gamo Swarm Maxxim comes both in .177 caliber and .22 caliber. It also maintains a consistent velocity of 1300 fps in .177 and 975 fps in .22 calibre. All these are a great source of ammunition. Though .22 caliber can be able to more accurate in its direction rather than .177 caliber. Choosing the most accurate pellets can produce the highest muzzle energy. H&N Field Target Trophy Green and RWS Hobby pellets are great for this air rifle. With lead pellets, the maximum muzzle velocity can be obtained.



This air rifle can give 80% or above consistency. With pellets taste, it can give a consistency of average 10.12 fps. Again, the trigger pull weight may vary from the average of 4 Oz to 7 oz. The accuracy level is also pretty consistent. It tends to deliver higher power levels. With the lightest pellets, it can result in the maximum speed. The muzzle energy of the air rifle can be counted as 20 ft. /lbs. range with alloy pellets to 17.5 ft. /lbs. for lead pellets.


Shot Capacity and Performance

The shooting performance of the air rifle is extremely well. The Gamo Swam Maxxim has 10 shot magazine pellet loading capability which is called 10x quick-shot mostly. Each time the gun reloads when it is cocked.  It is a very well balanced air rifle which is easy to get on target for a shot. The magazines have a reasonable counter visible on top that demonstrates the number of pellets staying in the magazine.


Multi-shot break barrel

It is a break barrel adult rifle with a rotary magazine of a multi-shot. It has 10x quick-shot rotary system. The magazine holds 10 shots in either caliber and it stacks all around effectively, simply turns the magazine and pop the pellets in. The use is really easy and reliable at the same time. It is popular for giving a quick follow-up shot. The gun is comparatively easy to a cock that can take only about 30 pounds of pressure.


Sight, Scope and Recoil reducing rail system

The Gamo Swarm Maxxim supplies 3-9×40 scope. Additionally, it has a one-piece scope mount that provides with springs and consequently opens the side rail for fitting. That is an exceptionally helpful component. The scope mount additionally has a strong solid stop pin that situates in the comparing gap in the RRR (Recoil Reducing Rail) over the pressure tube. This Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR) maximizes scope lifespan with 99.9% recoil compensation. This framework adequately opposes the scope creep. The recoil reducing system can prevent slipping and tighten the rings for mounting. Again the use of recoil pad is also effective. It uses to cover the buttstock. This is also called Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) recoil pad. It has no front or rear sights as well as any iron sights. So no additional screw is required here.



It uses all-weather ambidextrous stock which is durable, robust and rigorous for use. In cold to warm as well as in all weather, it suits the users undoubtedly. This stock also fits well to the rifle and keeps the rifle on target and precise down range. The non-slip surface structure on the grip and lower arm keep this rifle solidly close by and rapidly on target. This air rifle feels like a full-estimate rifle at 45 inches and gives like a full-measure rifle.


Trigger and cocking effort

The Custom Action Trigger (CAT) is a lightweight average of two and a half pounds pull weight. It is independently adjustable 1st and 2nd stage, allows you to experience an amazing shoot with a clean brake. The trigger is easy to use and can be operated reliably.  This 2 stages smooth action trigger helps you to obtain the maximum accuracy.

From various tests, we get an average of 34 Lbs. cocking effort that is very much close to the company’s claim of 32 lbs. cocking effort. So we can say that easily it provides a quite good cocking effort.


How to use:

Loading the pellets and inserting the magazine

At first, insert the pellets into the magazine with the tip facing down and then insert the very first pellet into the magazine. Then before inserting the second pellet, rotate the magazine pellet holder towards the bolt set apart on it. Until you insert 10 pellets in it you need to repeat these steps. Also if you loaded your pellet backwards then insert new pellets into the magazine in the right direction. Next, insert the magazine into the breach and push it down until the locking mechanism engage.


When the air rifle is loaded that means it is ready to shoot. On that time release the safety mechanism and pull the trigger. For shooting a second pellet, you need to activate the safety mechanism. Then in order to rotate the magazine break the barrel again and this procedure automatically insert a second pellet into the breech. Next, need to pull the barrel back to the initial position and when you get ready to shoot release the safety mechanism and pull the trigger. Until the magazine is an empty repeat this operation for the 10 times mostly as it has a maximum capacity of 10 pellets.

For removing the magazine push the button that is in front of the magazine groove and thus the way the magazine will be easily released and ready to remove.
