With a smaller, lightweight design and easy 19-lb. cocking effort, the Gamo® Recon WhisperTM is the perfect starter rifle for youngsters or novice adults. Great for plinking and small-game hunting, too, thanks to a 3-7x20mm Scope and 750 FPS muzzle velocity. It's stealthy quiet, too, with built-in Whisper noise dampening system that reduces sound to nearly undetectable levels. These models have been factory refurbished to like-new condition, so they look and perform like new, yet cost far less.
