Gamo Hunter Extreme Air Rifle Review

Gamo Hunter Extreme Air Rifle

From its precision steel barrel to extra large power plant, the Extreme is adult sized. 58 lbs. of cocking power and an 18" jacketed steel bull barrel send lead pellets accurately down field at 1250 fps and PBA at 1600 fps. Comes with a 3-9x50 Illuminated center glass etched reticle scope mounted on a grooved rail. Quality constructed stock from fine selected grade of beech hardwood and a ventilated rubber pad for recoil absorption is on the butt. Raised Montecarlo cheekpiece and laser engraved checkering.


Caliber .177
Action Break Barrel
Power Spring
Capacity Single Shot
Total Length 48.5"
Barrel Length 18"
Weight 9 lbs.
Velocity 1600 fps w/PBA, 1250 w/Lead

When shooting the Gamo Hunter Extreme, I recommend using Gamo Raptor PBA (Performance Ballistic Alloy) Pellets.

What is the Gamo Raptor?

The Gamo Raptor is a non-lead pellet. They are available in .177, .22 and .25 and weigh from 5.4 (.177 Cal.) to 14.4 Grains (.25 Cal.), so whatever they are made of is lighter than lead. The Performance Ballistic Alloy, as Gamo calls it, is plated with 18-carat gold for barrel lubrication, and Gamo claims the new pellet has "match-grade" accuracy. The Raptor is sold strictly for hunting. Gamo even warns not to use them with an airgun pellet trap, undoubtedly thinking of the ricochet problem.
