Gamo Timeline 

Following the creation of the ACSA group to manufacture lead derivatives, Antonio Casas Serra decided in 1950 to produce lead-based ammunition. Five years later, he founded Industrias el Gamo S.A. and in 1961 presented his first shotguns, which were immediately successful on the Spanish market. The group then moves towards the manufacture of rifles with fully interchangeable parts. Gamo's objective is to offer quality products to a wide range of customers price and thus popularize compressed air shooting. In 1963, the first exports were made to the United Kingdom and in 1970, they were made to more than 40 countries. In 1980, the group began a process of commercial relations with other foreign manufacturers in the same sector.

Two years later, the ammunition factory was moved to a new and much larger industrial park, which also included a wood processing plant for the production of weapons butts. In 1995, Gamo acquired a North American distributor and created a subsidiary in the country to facilitate the sale of its products. In 2007, the MCH Private Equity group acquired 80% of Industrias el Gamo to promote the brand's expansion. One year later, Gamo incorporates the WHISPER sound reduction system in most of its models. In 2009, the method of manufacturing ammunition changed with the appearance of new ammunition made of alternative materials to lead. In 2011, the performance of Gamo rifles will be improved thanks to the use of the IGT system which stabilizes the power and increases accuracy. In 2013, Gamo was fully acquired by the BRS investment fund, which wanted to further develop international sales.
