"The Gamo Raptor was carefully designed to provide the shooter with a solid rifle for years of shooting success. The Whisper silencing technology reduces up to 52% of sound so you won't scare away surrounding prey. When you get on target you will notice the Smooth Action Trigger allows you to break a clean shot with a specially designed 2nd stage that is as it says in the name smooth. The rifled steel barrel provides great accuracy as your pellet blazes down range. The ergonomic all-weather stock is great for shooting no matter the conditions and because it is hard to put this gun down once you shoot it the Shock Wave Absorber recoil pad dampens the shock giving you all day shooting comfort.
