One of the more noted features of the Gamo Whisper air rifle is the 18 inch fluted, polymer jacketed, rifled steel barrel which in part contributes heavily to its accuracy. The steel barrel is of good quality for a high speed air rifle as it would have to be with a velocity of 1200 feet per second with PBA ammo and 1000 feet per second with lead .177 caliber pellets.
