New for 2024: GAMO Swarm Magnum Pro 10X GEN3i

posted on January 22, 2024

GAMO Outdoors USA has announced a brand new iteration of its Swarm magnum Pro air rifle. This GEN3i repeating rifle is fed by a 10-round, horizontally mounted inertia-fed magazine. Indexing by harnessing the inertia force of the rifle, it precisely drops .177 or .22-caliber pellets (depending on chambering) directly into the bore, promoting precision and eliminating the chance for a double feed.

Magazine Gamo Swarm Magnum

The new GAMO Swarm Magnum Pro 10X GEN3i is built around IGT Mach 1 Inert Gas Technology, a gas-piston system that gives small-game hunters up to 1,650 fps. Pellets are released via the company's Custom Action trigger, which boasts a fully adjustable two-stage mechanism. Of course, as will all air-rifles, the forces produced are hard on optics, occurring as they do in two directions. With this in mind, GAMO has included a shockproof and fogproof 3-9x40mm optic. The scope mounts to an 11mm dovetail via a specialized rail mount, with a built-in recoil lug to prevent shifting. 

Gamo Swarm Magnum being Cocked

In addition to all the above, a redesigned stock, crafted from automotive-grade materials, gives users comfortable ergonomics paired with a non-slip finish. Sound dampening is also included. The rifle tips the scales at 6.88 pounds, with a 49.2-inch overall length, a 21.3-inch metal-jacketed and rifled steel barrel and a 15-inch length of pull (LOP). While cocking effort is a hefty 41 pounds, trigger-pull weight sits merely between 2.6 and 3.2 pounds. A manual safety engaged and disengages the trigger, while a Shock Wave Absorber (SWA) recoil pad soaks up, up to 74-percent of recoil.

Gamo Swarm Magnum Ready for Action

With 10 shots on tap, a light trigger and fast, repeatable accuracy, the GAMO Swarm Magnum Pro 10X GEN3i is a squirrel hunter's dream. Precise enough for headshots, quiet enough to not spook every critter in the woods, and with enough ammunition on tap for multiple follow-up shots on multiple targets, the rifle is ready to go almost right out of the box.

Review: Winchester 400 Legend

Winchester’s new 400 Legend is a streamlined, mid-sized straight-wall cartridge intended to fill the gap between its wildly popular 350 Legend and the notorious 450 Bushmaster. It is—in our opinion—a masterstroke of genius.
