If good things come in small packages, then the R7 is a really good thing! Compact in size but not in performance, the Beeman R7 is often called the "little R1." It's that good. Other than size, there are very few differences between the R1 powerhouse and the R7. Through the double-jointed cocking lever, the R7 delivers a reduced cocking effort (almost half the R1). That makes this the perfect gun for smaller shooters, women or anyone who wants an easy-cocking spring-piston gun.
Includes 1" scope rings, medium profile, vertical scope stop in one ring, 2 screws per base & 4 screws per ring cap.
The R7 is 5" shorter than the R1 and over 2.5 lbs. lighter. Don't worry about marring the finish, because the satin finish on the stained beech stock resists minor scratches. The gun has no sights so you must mount a scope on the 11mm dovetail grooves in the receiver. The checkered pistol grip gives you a solid hold, while the rubber buttpad adds even more control. Like the R1, this gun has the famous Rekord trigger, giving you a predictable, crisp, adjustable let-off. The R7 is a German-made engineering marvel that will deliver decades of shooting pleasure.

Things I liked:Accuracy and overall quality. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:First Beeman rifle and very impressed with quality and finish. Trigger broke at exactly 2 lb straight out of the box. I zeroed at 25 yards and my first five shot group measured 0.207" using JSB Exact 8.44 gr domed pellets. These pellets consistently group 0.25" at 25 yds and will do 0.5" - 0.75" at 40 yards. Tried 3 other types of pellets so far but none have matched the accuracy of the JSBs. Couldn't be happier.
Things I liked:This is not an accurate rifle. I bought it for indoor Shiloette shooting. It will not be useful for this. I contacted pyramid air and received no reply. Things I would have changed:Accuracy.
Hi. Other than no scope, I assume this R7 is identical to the one sold as part of the Elite Series Combo?
Joe from USA:
correct, it's the same gun, but this one is gun-only
Dennis from USA asked:
620 FPS in .20 Caliber? What pellet was used to get this rating?
Todd from USA:
With Beeman it's typically a lead pellet, but the lightest one possible. I don't know about .20, but some years ago he used 6.5gr lead in .177 which is why all his guns were rated at higher velocity that the mfg. Beeman doesn't make anything btw. This for example is a Weihrauch 30 with a shorter barrel and no open sights. Better to get the 30 and add a muzzle brake. Actually better to get a 35, 50, 85, or 95 which are similar in price but more powerful. If you want .20cal for whatever reason then I'd certainly want a more powerful gun than this to push it.
nik from USA asked:
Can I hunt squirels with this at close distance?
Dan the Man from USA:
Within 10 yards, you should be fine with a head shot or vital organ shot.
