The Whisper Series main feature is the non-removable Integrated Noise Dampener attached to the end of the barrel, the same position a muzzle break would be located. This modification on the break-barrel air rifle reduces muzzle noise by up to 52%, making it simply incomparable to any air gun on the market. The added feature allows for the surprise affect on varmint shoots.
Included in the series are four Whisper air rifles all with the same ND 52 technology, but different characteristics. The Original Whisper, a .177cal air gun with a standard synthetic black sleek stock and a high performance 39x40 air rifle scope.
Monday July 21, 2008, “The Whisper is known as The Quiet Gun® due to reduced noise, recoil, and muzzle blast, Lou Riley Chief Executive Office (CEO) said.” Gamo USA is offering complete family line of Whisper in .177 caliber and .22 caliber that have thick ventilated rubber butt pad combined with the noise dampener will soften the recoil, making it easier to stay on target and much more comfortable, to fire the air gun.” “The Reduced firing blast will confuse wildlife of shooting direction and decrease spooking, keep sensitive neighbors happy while plinking in the backyard, and will not disturb fellow shooters."
The Whisper Deluxe, in .177 cal as well with the Integrated Noise Dampener includes the same scope and open sites as the original Whisper but has an upgraded gray/black stock, with thick twin cheek pads and checkering on the forearm and grips.
The third in the line is the Whisper VH a .177 cal break barrel air rifle features all the amenities of the first two, the ND 52 noise dampener and open sites, but the VH part, standing for Varmint Hunter, directly applies to the 3-9x 40 air rifle scope, matched with a laser sight and flash light, for convenient day or night shooting. In replace of the full stock as the Standard and Deluxe the Whisper VH has a lightweight thumbhole stock with a modern look and feel.
