GAMO Outdoor USA has added the Hornet Maxxim break-barrel gas-piston air rifle to its lineup in both .22  and .177 calibers. The rifle is ideal for small-game hunting, recreational shooting and pest control. All the user needs to do is break open the rifled steel barrel, load a pellet and take aim. 

Along with delivering steady power with less vibration, GAMO's Whisper Maxxim sound suppression technology minimizes normal shooting noise. Additionally, the manufacturer has incorporated its patent-pending Custom Action Trigger—a two-stage adjustable trigger—and its Recoil Reducing Rail, which maximizes the lifespan of the included 3-9x40 scope.

The all-weather molded synthetic stock has Shock Wave Absorber and its color-coded gasket ProShot ID System, which matches shooting needs with the performance attributes of each model. For example, 
air gun and ammunition packages are now clearly labeled and color coordinated to designate their recommended primary usage: Red = Pest/Recreation; Green = Hunting; Blue = Competition.
