Мощная пневматика: винтовки «Gamo Mach1»

Испанская оружейная компания «Gamo» выпустила совершенно новую линейку сверхмощных по меркам пружинно-поршневой пневматики винтовок класса «супермагнум» под общим фирменным названием «Mach1». Его читают по-разному – «Мач», Мах», «Макс», но правильней, на мой взгляд, будет «Мак».

Все началось еще в 2015 году, когда испанцы представили на американском рынке специальную модификацию модели «Gamo Mach 1», естественно, в 22-м калибре (5,5 мм). Ее назвали в честь одного из заокеанских охотников — телеведущего стрелкового шоу «Boss Hog» Брайена Куасы (Brian Quaca), более известного среди стреляющей публики под именем Pig Man. Винтовку так и окрестили — «Gamo Mach1 PigMan».

Для «Gamo» это не первый такой случай продвижения нового товара, не так давно фурор у американских эйрганнеров вызвала переломка «Bone Collector», названная в честь одноименного познавательного охотничье-стрелкового сериала. Новое название породило забавные казусы: поскольку «PigMan», в частности, означает охотника на кабанов, ряд изданий поспешил анонсировать «супер-пневматику» — первую в мире пружинно-поршневую винтовку, предназначенную для отстрела секачей (. ). Ну да бог с ними…

Характеристики пневматической винтовки «Gamo Mach1 PigMan»

За фирменным наименованием нового продукта «Mach1» сама компания ставит слияние двух технологий.

Во-первых, применение громадного компрессора 33х100. Цилиндры такого диаметра (33 мм) ранее в серийных винтовках не использовал ни один производитель. За основу взята тоже недавняя разработка как бы промежуточных между «магнумами» (25х100) и «супермагнумами» (29х120) винтовок. К ним относятся уже упоминавшийся «Gamo Bone Collector», предназначенный для американского рынка, а также европейская «черная серия» — «Black Knight», «Black Fusion» и «Black Bull» – с компрессором 29х100 (см. «Постскриптум для супермагнума»).

Во-вторых, испанцы устанавливают во все винтовки этой серии фирменную газовую пружину на основе осушенного азота IGT (Inert Gas Technology) с тщательно подобранными характеристиками.

В результате получилось оружие, вставшее по скорости/энергетике на уровень классических «супермагнумов». И это при меньшем объеме компрессора, меньших габаритах и лучших показателях кучности-точности. При этом цена у него существенно ниже, чем у элитных конкурентов – «Диана 350», «Гамо Хантер 1250» и даже «Benjamin Trail NP XL-1500», хотя, конечно, превышает стоимость турецкого «Хатсан 125» и китайского «Смерш Р4».

По заверению производителей, «Gamo Mach1 PigMan» в 177-м калибре (4,5 мм) выдает скорость 1420 fps, или 433 метра в секунду! Правда, это с набившей оскомину фирменной пулькой «PBA Platinum Ammo» 0,28 грамма (подробнее – «Пули для пневматики и особенности стрельбы»). В стандартном для США калибре .22 (5,5 мм) – 1055 fps, или 322 м/с. Это очень серьезный показатель, но, как и в предыдущем случае, он достигается со сверхлегкой «Gamo Raptor Platinum» 9.7 Grain (0,63 грамма), что для мощной пневматики очень не здорово и напоминает рытье траншей детским совочком.

С чуть более более серьезными, а также действительно нормальными для 22-го калибра боеприпасами, по результатам контрольных отстрелов, проведенных американскими оружейными экспертами, ситуация следующая.

Пуля

Скорость

Показатели, действительно, весьма неплохие для пружинно-поршневой винтовки. Конечно, ей далеко до возможностей PCP-пневматики, но для реальной охоты (не на секачей) она вполне подходит. В том числе и по кучности.

Что еще отметили американские стрелки?

Плюсы и минусы винтовки «Gamo Mach1 PigMan»

Итак, не понравилось:

  1. Взвод винтовки, точнее, его слишком большое усилие во всех фазах, вообще свойственное газовым пружинам. Правда, это при использовании ее для спортивных целей, когда предстоит делать десятки выстрелов подряд. Для охоты все в пределах нормы.
  2. У прицела отсутствует возможность фокусировки. Она в основном нужна на дистанциях менее 15 метров, то есть опять же для спорта. А вот простенькая прицельная сетка «дуплекс», вместо «милдот», и мне не очень нравится – имею точно такой же прицел «Gamo 3-9х40 IR WR». Хотя и не напрягает особо, просто смещаю точку прицеливания полуинтуитивно, исходя из опыта.
  3. Точность стрельбы. Она очень зависела от пуль (хотя чему тут удивляться – непонятно). Винтовка явно не для спорта, но в целом вполне охотничий девайс.

Что понравилось:

  1. Заводские регулировки спускового механизма.

Этими винтами регулируются две фазы спуска.

Здесь использован новый гамовский СМ «SAT» — Smooth Action Trigger (плавный ход триггера). У него немного изменены в сторону «спорта» настройки за счет подбора жесткости пружин и величины усилия на шепталах. Отмечен очень легкий свободный ход и явно выраженная «ступенька» с небольшим усилием спуска. Разница усилия при десятках замеров составила всего 5 граммов.

  1. Скоростные показатели. Но о них мы уже говорили выше.
  2. Стабильность выстрела. Зафиксировано максимальное отклонение по скорости всего в 6 fps, менее 2 метров в секунду. Отличный показатель.
  3. Вес винтовки чуть более 3 кг.
  4. Бесшумность выстрела. Благодаря глушителю он объективно намного тише, нежели у обычной пневматики. Тем более, что реальные скорости с нормальными пульками даже в калибре 4,5 мм дозвуковые, и устройство работает вполне корректно.

К тому же здесь использована фирменная гамовская технология «Wisper» — толстостенный ствол покрыт полимерным кожухом, что вкупе с интегрированным саунд-модератором (глушителем) еще больше снижает шум. Особенно это актуально для пневматики такой мощности. Кстати, нечто подобное в 2016 году поставил на поток турецкий «Хатсан», выпустив новую серию сверхмощных винтовок под индексом «QE». Среди них присутствует даже такое «чудище», как 45-джоулевый 7,62-миллиметровый «Carnivore» («Хищник»).

  1. Цена. 270-340 долларов в зависимости от магазина, акций, скидок и т.п.

В целом мнение американских экспертов весьма положительное. Но, еще раз повторю, винтовки серии «Mach1» — это больше охотничье, а не спортивное, оружие (см. «Пневматические винтовки для охоты«).

Европейские версии винтовок «Gamo Mach1»

Но что это мы все про Америку да про Америку – как обстоят дела на нашем континенте?

В 2016 году «Gamo» порадовала своими новинками и европейских любителей пневматики. Здесь представителями производственной линейки «Mach1» выступают ближайшие родственники уже знакомой нам «черной серии» мощных винтовок с цилиндрами 29х100 мм, только оснащенные газовой пружиной IGT и 33-миллиметрвым компрессором. Вот они — «Black Knight IGT Mach1», «Black Bull IGT Mach1» и «Black Fusion IGT Mach1»:

Выпускаются, как и «американцы», в 177-м и 22-м калибрах, выдают те же самые показатели. Отличаются только ложем: у «Пигманов» оно позаимствовано у «тактической» линейки «SOCOM» (Special Operations Command), а европейские представители по экстерьеру – полные аналоги «черной серии».

А в 2017 году компания начала производство самых мощных в мире пружинно-поршневых винтовок серии «Mach1» с гигантским с компрессором 33х120 мм и энергией 36 джоулей (см. «Пневматические винтовки «Гамо»).

Gamo Mach 1 Pigman Edition air rifle

Gamo Outdoor USA introduces the MACH 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle, available in .177 and .22 variants and featuring all the best features a Gamo product can offer

First introduced last January at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas (NV) by Gamo Outdoor USA − the north American branch of the Spanish-based Gamo Outdoor S.L., a global leader in airguns market and technology − the new Mach 1 Pigman Edition air rifle was conceived under the auspices of an airgun sponsorship agreement signed in July 2014 with the production of a popular Sportsman Channel TV show − «Pigman: The Series” − and with its host and executive producer: professional hunter Brian “Pigman” Quaca, one of the most accomplished and unique hunters to ever feature his exploits on outdoor television.

A charismatic host, Brian «Pigman» Quaca enjoys entertaining the masses with his distinctive approach to hunting, his excellent sense of humor, and he is reportedly a down to earth person who always takes the time to hang out with his fans.

A signature version of the already popular Mach 1 high-power air rifle from Gamo, the new «Pigman Edition» model integrates a vast majority of the most innovative features launched by the Spanish company, and its U.S. subsidiary, on the global panorama of airguns.

At the earth of the new single-shot, break-barrel Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle is the the IGT Mach 1 system, which replaces the standard spring-activated piston used to charge conventional airguns and propel their pellets with a 33-millimeter inert gas cylinder that delivers superior velocity and terminal performance, propelling 4,5mm/.177 caliber Gamo PBA Platinum pellets up to a staggering 1420 feet-per-second (432,8 metres per second), with constant performance and a smooth, effortless manual cocking. The 5,5mm/.22 caliber variant of the Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» provides instead a muzzle velocity level that ranges around 1020 feet-per-second (310,9 metres-per-second, approximately) with the same type of ammunition.

Another peculiar feature of the Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» is the CAT technology, standing for «Custom Action Trigger«: Gamo’s own near-Match-grade airgun trigger system, provides two separate screws that enable shooters to independently adjust its first and second stage and thus to customize its weight, break and reset according to their needs and purposes.

The Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle is factory-issued with a 3-9×40 riflescope mounted on the company’s own RRR («Recoil Reducing Rail«) system, developed to subdue the taxing stresses placed on your scope from the intense recoil of air guns and high-powered rifles by using a patent-pending two-piece aluminum construction separated by dual polymer struts to absorb shockwaves. Once mounted to the RRR rail, the recoil stresses to internal components of the scope are reduced by almost 100%.

Last, but not least, the Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle integrates another Gamo signature technology, the Whisper Fusion noise dampening system, integrated directly onto the fluted, polymer-jacketed steel barrel − thus effectively dubbing as a sound suppressor for this extremely powerful airgun and making it discreet for indoors or outdoors plinking despite its high power, as well as a trusty varmint hunt tool that will not give away, by any chance, your shooting position to any prey nearby.

The Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle is also factory-issued with fiber-optic front and rear sights, a prominent ambidextrous cheekpiece on the all-weather black stock, rubberized grips, and an adjustable SWA («ShockWave Absorber«) synthetic buttpiece, based upon three removable absorption cells, providing up to 74% more absorption than standard recoil pads for a more stable and pleasurable shooting.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the Gamo Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle is $369.95 for both the 4,5mm/.177 and 5,5mm/.22 versions. As of today, the Mach 1 «Pigman Edition» air rifle is available only in the United States. Prospective non-US buyers should refer to the relevant GAMO distributor for their Country for informations concerning possible availability and pricing.

RWS 34 or Gamo Mach 1

New to this whole air gun thing. I need the .22 cal and I know these guns are not apples to apples but I hear such good things about the RWS 34 that I just can’t over look it. I need to stay under $300 and the Gamo is faster quieter and has the gas piston instead of the springer which I think is a good thing. Is the spring and 800 fps a deal breaker vs 1020 fps with gas spring ? Noise is a bit of concern but not the biggest, how comparable are the db on a rws 34 vs a gamo whisper mach 1 ?

The RWS 34 is the better airgun by a wide margin. Optimal velocity for best accuracy with an airgun is under 950fps. Anything over 950ish and certainly at 1000fps can break the sonic barrier and introduce turbulence that screws up your accuracy. I prefer to shoot springers at 800fps or thereabouts.

The build quality on the RWS is superior to the Gamo. And steel springs are the best powerplant IMHO. The highest end spring rifles continue to use steel springs, not gas rams. Steel springs can be left cocked for hours will no ill effects.

Ignore the advertising, high power springers are not quiet, and that includes the Gamo.

If you care properly for the RWS it should serve you well for decades.

+1 with EMrider …The comparison of this two rifles is not even close . The RWS is a very high quality rifle , The other is hyped up by its speed . Speed is useless if it won’t hit where its pointed . I’m not an engineer or anything , and I k ow the nitro piston thing sounds good ….But its WAYYYYYY overhyped . The best traditional powered airguns out there is something that guys here can debate like crazy and have a ball doing it ..But a nitro piston gun won’t make the conversation . Cost/quality you could make a strong case for the RWS34.

Thanks guys, decision made, that was my gut feeling, just wanted to double check

Did you already order? If not, I’ll add another vote for the Diana.

The Gamo might (MIGHT) shoot harder, but if its accuracy is not good, what does it matter? It’s not a new story either. No one is ever amazed by the accuracy of the affordable gas ram guns.They’re adequate, at best. I keep trying to talk myself in to a Crosman, but I can’t do it.

The Diana not only has better build quality and materials, but also a much better trigger. You’ll shoot so much better with the Diana that any lack of power will more than be compensated for. Just research how to hold them; look for ‘ airgun artillery hold’ online. You can’t hold them tight to your shoulder and rigidly supported. Hold them loose and support them in the same place every time. Let it move. It won’t hurt you no matter HOW hard they kick, since the recoil is forward, not back.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with gas rams, it’s just that the traditional spring gun manufacturers will take their time to start introducing them, since they’ve spent the last 100+ years refining spring technology. I believe gas ram guns can be just as good as springers (ex. Theoben, and Beeman RX2) but for some reason, no one makes a low or medium power one yet; only magnum, so it’s hard to compare a reasonably-powered springer with a magnum powered gas ram gun.

Lastly, a .22 shooting at 800 fps is pretty strong. I think it would take game up to raccoon-sized with a chest shot, or anything smaller than a wildebeast with a head shot.

Gamo Whisper Fusion Mach 1 Air Rifle

By Frank Melloni

The most silent air rifle in the Gamo lineup

The feature rich Gamo Whisper Fusion Mach 1 leaves very little to be desired. The recoil absorbing rail allows for pain free scope mounting and helps largely with its ability to hold zero. The integrated muzzle break makes it a pleasure to shoot, and the IG spring piston sends pellets down range at lethal velocities.

Ah, first light . . . the hopeful feeling of a brand-new day inspired by the smell of coffee and bacon, the sounds of the woods coming alive and the thud of an unsuspecting “tree rat” meeting his silent demise. Yes, I am talking about the Squirrel Master’s Classic. Since 2014, professional hunters, writers and industry representatives meet at the Southern Sportsman’s Lodge in Montgomery, Alabama to join up with the local 4H kids and test new gear in a competitive squirrel hunt. Celebrity hunters like Mike Waddell of Bone Collector, Brian “Pig Man” Quaca, Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo of Archer’s Choice and Jackie Bushman of Buck Masters (among many others) came out for the fun.

The iron sights are ideal for first and last light hunting. The author found these more useful than a scope for his first and last shots of the day. With the right scope mounts, the rifle can be set up to be used with both.

The 2016 event brought the pleasure of hunting with the Gamo .22 caliber Whisper Fusion Mach 1 ($249.99). My first impression on the rifle was “This isn’t what Ralphie got in a Christmas story”. That’s because it wasn’t. Gamo is the world leader in adult airguns, and their airguns generate enough energy to humanely dispatch living creatures. In plain words, airguns are not toys.

The Whisper Fusion Mach 1 gets its name from their new sound suppression system. Sound suppression on this beast starts all the way back by the chamber where it goes through its first stage. About 3/4 of the way up the barrel the rifle is suppressed again, making it the quietest air rifle Gamo produces. This is perfect for follow up shots (if you need them). This new-for-2016 rifle houses the most powerful IGT System. The IGT (Inert Gas Technology) delivers more power and consistency than conventional spring systems, while making cocking effort very manageable. Gamo’s fastest moving pellet, the PBA, is clocked at 1,050 f.p.s. in .22 cal. We used the Gamo Rocket pellets on our hunt, which were later confirmed at an average velocity of 785 f.p.s. via my Shooting Crony Gamma Master chronograph (shootingchrony.com,$220.95).

The Whisper Fusion Mach 1’s adjustable sights have red and green fiber optic inserts, making them super bright, even first thing in the morning. Also included is a basic 3-9x40mm magnifying optic. Although the optic was average, the base was extraordinary. Airguns put more abuse on an optic than even the biggest centerfire rifles. This is not because they recoil more, but because they recoil differently. Gamo’s Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR) has polymer struts that take up the shock your scope normally would.

The rear sight is very robust and features micro click adjustments. With the inherent accuracy of the rifle, the author was pleased that he was able to a dial his gun in just the way that he likes. The sights held zero through an abusive, mobile hunt, and the recoil of the monstrous power plant that Gamo has employed on this air rifle.

This opens the field of usable optics if you choose to upgrade. Carrying this rifle afield for an entire day gave us a “real world” evaluation. Over 100 squirrels that day met their doom at the hands of these rifles. Later testing proved those little rocket pellets group smaller than half an inch at 15 yards, accurate enough for even the smallest critters. This accuracy is attributed to the entire design; however, the rifleman in me gives it all to the trigger. This rifle came equipped with the CAT trigger system, or custom adjustable trigger. This trigger allows you to not only adjust the pull weight, but also the length of the first stage as well. I was never a fan of a two-stage triggers—if my finger is on a trigger it’s because I’m going to send it. With that in mind I adjusted it down as far as it would go, taking all but about a quarter inch of creep out. Turning the weight adjusting screw down all the way gave me a soft release at a 2 lb. 10 oz. pull weight, confirmed by my Lyman digital trigger-pull scale (lymanproducts.com, $74.95), mind boggling for an airgun! Offhand shooting was comfortable if you are accustomed to rifle shooting. This is not a lightweight kid’s airgun, although weighing in at only 6.6 lbs. makes it anything but cumbersome.

The Gamo Rocket pellets feature a steel tip and delivered excellent consistency on the hunt. These were responsible for quite a few of our downed squirrels. Back home the author had a lot of fun punching tiny groups with them in his basement. Having one round to do it all saves the headache of working with two zeros and learning two different trajectories.

Airguns serve a critical role in the firearms community. For many they are the easiest way to teach a new shooter fundamentals and safety. Getting these new shooters involved is the only way to guarantee the survival of this sport.
