The Whisper is a wonderful, lightweight, powerful air rifle. Adding the Crosman Nitro Piston conversion delivers more benefits.
Offering 960 fps with PBA or 750 fps with standard lead, you'll be ready to hunt small and medium-sized game and vermin. Plus, the non-removable noise dampener reduces the noise up to 52%, which means you won't spook game while hunting. And, just because the Whisper is modestly priced doesn't mean you give up anything in the accuracy department! You'll be hitting your targets and making one-shot kills time after time. This just might be the ideal hunting gun!
