The GAMO Shadow Elite shoots a .22 alloy pellet at 1,000 fps, making it an ideal pellet gun for hunting small game, pest control and target practice. It features front and rear fiber optics sights that allow you to pick-off small, hard-to-see targets. Combined with its performance features, the Shadow Elite .22 comes with an all weather molded synthetic stock with rubber inserts on the pistol grip and forearm, and an adjustable cheek piece. The Gamo Shadow Elite .22 functions with a break barrel, a gas piston (Inert Gas Technology) and has the Whisper noise dampening technology.
WHISPER NOISE SUPPRESION
Gamo’s patented Whisper technology leads the air rifle industry in sound suppression. This technology is categorized into three tiers—Whisper, Whisper/Whisper Maxxim and Whisper Fusion—for quiet, quieter, and quietest performance. However, “noise reduction” does not mean “silence,” as sound levels will vary depending upon pellet choice. A lighter, faster and smaller caliber pellet, for instance, will produce a louder sound than a heavier, slower and higher caliber pellet. To further assist with your purchasing decision, please refer to the chart above.
IGT (Inert Gas Technology) GAS PISTON
The Shadow Elite .22 features the IGT technology. Improve your knockdown power and accuracy! Enhance your hunting experience! The IGT™ (Inert Gas Technology™) from Gamo® enhances your hunting or target shooting experience. This technology consists of a pneumatic cylinder that replaces the spring, enabling the shooter to get more terminal velocity (up to 1,300 fps with .177 Cal. Alloy Ammunition and up to 1,000 fps with .22 Cal. Alloy Ammunition), less vibration, more consistent power, and a constant and smooth cocking effort.
CAT (Custom Action Trigger)
The revolutionary C.A.T. (Custom Action Trigger) enables Gamo air rifle owners to independently adjust the 1st and 2nd stages of their trigger to tailor the trigger pull and crispness to their personal preference. Simply loosen the 1st stage adjustment screw and the trigger travel increases. If a shorter travel length is desired just tighten the same screw to decrease the 1st Stage travel length. The 2nd Stage Adjustment is made just as easily —unscrew the adjustment setting to increase the 2nd Stage travel length or decrease it by screwing in the same adjustment point.
RECOIL REDUCING RAIL (RRR)
Gamo, pioneering the latest air gun technology, delivers the ground breaking Triple R(Recoil Reducing Rail). The RRR was developed to subdue the taxing stresses placed on your scope from the intense recoil of air guns and high-powered rifles. The Recoil Reducing Rail uses patent pending two-piece aluminum construction separated by dual polymer struts to absorb the shockwaves generated by the recoil. Once the scope is mounted to the Recoil Reducing Rail, the recoil stresses to its internal components are reduced by almost 100%. Hunters demand: Scope Reliability, Reduced Vibration and Dead On Accuracy. The Triple R (Recoil Reducing Rail) — Preserve Your Scope’s Lifetime for the Next Time. Only from Gamo.
ADJUSTABLE CHEEK PIECE
This air rifle comes with a high-grade synthetic thumbhole stock and adjustable cheek-piece. The cheek-piece can be adjusted up or down and makes the shooting experience definitely more comfortable. It also allows you to adjust it to shoot with open sights or with the scope.
