Things I liked: I was very impressed when I received this gun, It's well made and strong. The lever action worked smooth and fires bb at a decent velocity. The stock looks like wood and feels good. I am very satisfied with the Marlin and the price is fair, reasonable. Thanks Pyramid for quick and efficient service and delivery!!
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: No.
Things I liked: I bought this seal for my old R7 which I use occasionally, but noticed it not firing properly,weak and sounded different. After examining the gun and oiling I looked at the breech seal and appeared to be flat and cracked, I picked out the seal and it came out in pieces, just crumbling. I installed the new seal from Pyramid and restored gun to like new performance!!
Things I would have changed: The seal was perfect and probably better than the original. thanks for a great replacement seal for my Beeman R7 bought in the 80's and still going strong, I love this airgun.
What others should know: The R7 is probably one of the finest intermediate air rifles made. I have it over 30 years and with minimal oiling maintenance, replaced the main spring once and breech seal twice, that's it!! It still has knock down power on squirrel sized game,mine is .177 and about 700fps!!
