The Gamo CFR Whisper was one of the main innovations of 2010. This clear evolution of the CFX GAMO stands out for its simple finishes and adjusted selling price.
Some years ago, GAMO decided to bet on a new line of airguns with fixed barrel. One of the main reasons for this bet was that the weapons equipped with this system are far more accurate than traditional tilting barrel, since intervening fewer moving parts are often better groupings.

Until 2010, the product perhaps best identified with this range of fixed barrel carbines was successful GAMO CFX. For a long time, the standard version CFX and “luxury”, the CFX Royal, reigned between the fixed barrel rifles designed by the Spanish company. However, this hegemony has been seriously threatened with the launch of a new model, similar to the CFX but introduces some significant changes. This is the Gamo CFR Whisper. In essence, the Whisper CFR is a simple air rifle with fixed barrel and front loading, available in two sizes: 4.5mm and 5.5mm. As mentioned, this rifle was an evolution regarding the popular family of carbines Gamo CFX. In this sense, the CFR Whisper has adopted the same platform as the CFX, although that design has been added with important improvements, such as adjustable cheek and a sound moderator. Let’s get to know the best parts of this air rifle.
Aesthetically, the CFR Whisper can remind the tactical models of Gamo, such as its new line Socom, or one of its great classics, born over 20 years ago under the identifying name Command (although the latter could be considered rather a pistol carbine). Aas we have seen, the Gamo CFR Whisper stands out for its ergonomic design, facilitating handling and rapid shouldering. In this sense, one of the most important aspects is its stock with adjustable cheek piece, which allows the shooter to adapt the rifle to the right measure. Precisely at the end of its stock, by the way, completely ambidextrous, we find ventilated facilitates the absorption of recoil generated after each shot. The model we have had a chance to try is the caliber 4.5mm, which offers a speed mouth considerable: 305 m / s. Nevertheless, thanks to its built -in serial moderator sound, it is not too loud, something appreciated especially when long sessions of shooting are held.
As regards its sighting elements, the Whisper CFR has a micrometric rise classical steel and two green optical fibers that facilitate the approach to our goal. To further enhance the view of the target, just at the end of the barrel is also provided a small fiber optic point. If the shooter wants to shoot with open sights they can do that too. In case you prefer to use an optical sight of variables fixed increases or technicians GAMO have installed a small strip of aluminum on the barrel that allows the mounting of any viewer or element of additional aim. In addition to all these features, Gamo CFR Whisper has other elements that place as a chaperone to consider for those seeking an airgun initiation. In this regard, they highlighted the quality of the polymer which is made with synthetic stock, the chopped posting in its pistol and its forearm to improve the grip of the gun, or trigger two times.
In short, it is a precise, elegant, reliable and excellent air rifle for only $250, which aspires to inherit the hegemony of its successful predecessor carbine. If you compare the goods with the negatives of the Gamo CFR Whisper then you will clearly see that this air rifle is worth the value.
