Beeman QB Chief PCP Air Rifle
Tech Tip: When mounting a scope with a 40mm objective lens or larger, it may be necessary to remove the rear sight.
A balance of performance, quality features, and price point, the Chief is Beeman's first foray into budget-friendly, entry-level PCP guns.
With a look that harkens back to classical styling, the Chief’s hardwood stock offers a lot to love over its synthetic counterparts. Each stock is proudly embossed with yellow-hued Beeman logo. This airgun steps up the game with an adjustable 2-stage trigger—a great feature for an entry level PCP. For sighting, shooters can use the included fiber optic sights or mount their optics to the 11mm Dovetail rail for precision shots.
Filling to 2000 psi, users can easily fill their Chief with a handpump, or small tank for hours of shooting. Load up a pellet and send it spiraling downrange at speeds up to 1000 fps (in .177). Beeman’s specs claim this PCP can shoot up to 50 rounds in .177 or 35 in .22.
If you are looking to break into the exciting world of PCP airgunning, grab the Chief, and be pleased with its performance, quality, and its price!

Things I liked: This is a nice rifle for the money! I took it straight out of the box no bore cleaning nothing I went outside with a plethora of pellets and got to work. I started by zeroing the scope a centerpoint I got for it from here for 59.95 it is a good scope. then I started shooting 7.0 grain JSB match target pellets JSB sport, JSB heavy, and RWS meisterkugeln they shot of but groups were not real great. I thought well lets see if it likes heavy pellets so I went to JSB exact beast diablo 16.20 gr it did better with these. next up was RWS SUPERMAG FIELD LINE 9.3GR THIS WAS THE TICKET!!!!. I shot a 10 shot group at 20yrds under a dime actuall 0.517". with the trigger on this that is awesome the trigger is eehh. It was now time for the chrony. unfortunately I waited too long in the evening I started with the JSB exact beast diablo I got .663 .663 .666 .671 then I lost light, and my chrony couldn't read anymore.
Things I would have changed: If you have watched any youtube reviews and read the comments I think its airgun web tv with rick, you see a lot of people talking about the bolt popping up when firing, this is true and happens to mine, the fix would be a thicker o-ring at the front of the bolt I believe the bolt is sloppy, but as rick stated in the comments it does not affect accuracy as you can see by my 0.517" group. The trigger creeps and is a little crunchy it is hard to tell when it is going to break ive put about 150 shots through it and am kinda getting use to it but I don't like it. I have not tried to adjust it yet. I noticed at first pulling the bolt back was crunchy and hard to get the sear to latch this improved with use.
What others should know: This is a nice gun for $180 and a pcp to boot it needs a few refinements, someone handy can make this a great rifle. The rifle does not like starting out at 2000 psi chrony numbers increased with each shot to 1800 psi so that is were I started filling it to. I am using nitrogen and a 74 cu ft air venture carbon fiber tank, so I don't know how long to hand pump I have one but don't like to use it lol. This gun shoots great accuracy wise straight out of the box, it needs a little break in time, and a few little tweaks, bigger o ring on bolt, and trigger work or adjustment it does not really feel 2 stage it creeps back and then just fires. I say buy it for the money you can not go wrong even if left as is. It also has a very nice stock the raised cheek is nice, and the truglo sights are nice even though I did not use them you can and I'm sure they would work great. Some people have said the barrel band was loose on theirs mine is not it is fine. Start with RWS supermag field line 9.3 gr
Things I liked: Wow talk about being impressed. Great looking air rifle. The wooden stock was awesome and the metal construction was solid. Very powerful and a solid performer. A great buy especially with the combo Benjamin Pump..This is my first PCP and glad i chose this model.
Things I would have changed: I would specify in the description, that use of the hand pump can be strenuous for people over 50. This air rifle can be pressurized to 2000psi . it takes about 100 strokes on the Benjamin pump to achieve this psi. There is an excellent video on YOUTUBE about proper use of the pump and all buyers should review this video. Also the gun must be cocked before filling.Once you do, filling the rifle is much easier..I would also recommend adding a noise reduction shroud as an option.
What others should know: i fired several rounds without adjusting the sights that are provided with this gun. They were well grouped and extremely accurate. The gun when fired indoors is loud and my break barrel of the same caliber makes about the same level of noise. The Chiefs is just more high pitched. A noise reduction shroud would be nice if you intend to shoot indoors or in backyard.
Things I liked: My first impression was WOW. Felt like a solid gun. Looks great as well. I am of an age where iron sights do me very little good so before my first shot, I put a scope on the air rifle. That is when I found my first issue with the gun. The strap that in on the front of the gun that holds the barrel to air chamber is NOT secured. It can rotate. I tried to tighten the screw but it was already tight. If this part is not stable, and the barrel moves, it is going to move my point of impact every time it shifts. I will not get to shoot the gun for a couple more days but I will be carrying a bottle of super glue with me to get this close to sighted then glue the pieces together.
Things I would have changed: Have a more secure clamping system between the air chamber and barrel.
What others should know: Ill update this after I get to shoot the gun.

Can someone tell me which set of see thru rings that can be used on this gun and still see the iron sights ?
how long is the barrel?
This is a QB79 on HPA. How are they getting even close to over 800 fps. I have two of the QB79s and love them but 600 fps is the average velocity. Archer Airguns did the test on mine with HPA and 578 fps is what they got .
It is unregulated and likely has some changes made on the internals. Most of the QB actions that run on HPA are run on regulated bottles, which are usually set to CO2 pressures of 800-1100 psi. That is why they do not achieve the velocities that the Chief is capable of.
To fill your PCP gun:
