Gamo Hunter Extreme .177 Air Rifle with Rifle Scope
Truly the name speaks for itself. The Gamo Hunter Extreme is undoubtedly the ultimate air rifle for hunting. Unlike other air guns out there today, this baby has a tremendous firing power and will flank any other air rifles out there in terms of functionality, quality and design.
The Gamo Hunter Extreme commands PBA (Performance Ballistic Alloy) pellets that will shoot approximately 1600 feet per second while lead pellets can reach up to 1250 feet per second when unleashed in the air.
Such powerful pellet velocity will surely bring out the man in you while those nasty pests in your backyard are running away in fear from this beast. It has a full-sized select beech wood stock with deluxe laser checkering and a ventilated rubber butt pad for proficient recoil absorption. Honestly, I can fairly say that this Gamo air rifle has one of the best specs around.
Gamo Hunting Air Rifle Benefits
Using the performance air rifle has a lot of outstanding benefits. Aside from the fact that it has a perfect 5-star rating for superior quality and performance, the Gamo Hunter Extreme is amazingly powerful for an air gun. If you are looking for a one-shot, one-kill toy, then you need not to look elsewhere. Albeit it is quite expensive, what you are getting is far more important than its price.
Basically, it delivers everything you will need in an air gun. It’s a high-performance air gun that is accurate, powerful and consistent. It has a nice stock finish and a solid build. The scope included in the package is equally good and when you fire it, brace yourself because you will be “wow-ed” by it. Experts say that the Gamo Hunter Extreme could be the most powerful air gun today.

Gamo Hunting Air Rifle Recommendations
On the other side of things, this Gamo air rifle isn’t at all perfect and it has some minor setbacks. In spite of the fact that this air rifle is a little bit expensive, the trigger can be a little stiff at first. Due to its size and weight, the Hunter Extreme will be suitable for hunters with large hands. So if you are big guy with a big heart for hunting, this air gun should be your partner.
Also, I recommend that you use high quality pellets such as the ones for Beeman air rifles. I’ve heard other amateur hunters out there complaining about the Gamo .177 Hunter Extreme’s abilities and accuracy. But they are completely clueless that an air gun like this deserves using high quality pellets to take advantage of what it’s fully capable of.

Gamo Hunter Extreme .177 Comparison
The Gamo Hunter Extreme falls into the adult professional air rifle category together with the Airforce Condor and the Diana RWS 350 Magnum. All of the three top air rifles take pride in their superior pellet velocity, excellent craftsmanship and superb performance. T
The Gamo Hunter Extreme costs more than the Diana Magnum RWS air rifle but when compared to the Airforce Condor, it is a lot cheaper. I wouldn’t really recommend the Gamo Hunter Extreme to starters because it’s quite expensive. But if you have the money; then consider yourself lucky to play with probably the most powerful air gun in the world today.
