  • Jack from USA asked:

    What causes air to blow out of my barrel when Im pumping up my gun?

    • Mark from USA:

      Cock the gun first, If air still escapes the barrel . The firing valve has failed. The gun needs to be serviced.

  • Jack from USA asked:

    I got a Beeman an chief around 3 months ago and now when I go to pump air into the gun it blows the air back out of the barrel. Why could it be doing that?

    • Mark from USA:

      If the gun is cocked and air still exits the barrel the firing valve has failed. The gun needs to be serviced. You have a 1 year warranty thru Beeman/Marksman 800-227-2744

          • Jessica from USA:

            you have something loose.. check all screews etc and try only one set /kind of pellets.. every pellet shots different in this gun. and check your scope to. how to check your scope. set gun on a dot on the wall move the cross hairs up and down with a screew driver and see if the cross hairs follow up and down or side to side. also zoom as the cross hairs is on the dot on the target see if the scope stays zeroed or not. it will be something is loose or the scope or you changed up on pellets. this gun does not like light cheap pellets, they do not group will in this gun. pay a bit more get some JSB 15.89 grains or heavyer. they work wonders to with targets and hunting. i kill foxes with mine easy. Jsb Jombo Heavy 15.89 gr dome's are very good in this gun. for my gun it took about 400 shots but after the 15.89 was grouping at a 100 yards at a dime. i run a 3x9x32 Barska scope and it is sighted at 50 yards and at 100 yards it is 5 mill dots down at 100. i get driving nails at 50 yards and a dime at 100 yards. hope this helps you.

        • Trond from Norway asked:

          I get my new Beeman Chief and its use a lot of air, 10 shot and it use 1000psi, what can be wrong.

          • stephen from Canada asked:

            Is it okay to store it fully pressurized?

            • Tyler from USA:

              Yes

          • NY_airhunter from USA asked:

            Will aftermarket parts, like beaches and trigger groups, for the CO2 QB 78 work with the Chief? Can the safety be reversed? I would want to set this up as a left handed rifle if I bought it.

            • John from USA:

              The safety CAN easily be moved to the left side, I did it with mine. Instead of pushing safety forward to fire you will flip it back towards the trigger. Works like a charm for lefties. The safety can be reversed for lefties. The safety will flip towards the trigger to fire. Works great.

          • James from USA asked:

            Beeman PCP chief air leak. I found the leak around the pressure gauge. I replace the o ring and it still leaks. I put teflon tape on the treads and it still leaked. I tried gas line tape tape and it work better but still leaked around the treads. I can pump the gun up to 1600 psi and no more. It leaks around 100 psi in 2 or 3 days. I was thinking I might try 2 o rings seals or some pipe dope maybe anti seal. Any other thing to try?

            • Jessica from USA:

              super glue the threads it works and still can be taken out when needed. but strangly it works

            • Trond from Norway:

              Where did you bay orings, I have contact Beeman but they dont answer me.

            • Jonathan from USA:

              I have the same problem with mine, I have tried pretty much everything that you have with no solution as well. Keep us posted on the fix.

          • James from USA asked:

            does anyone know if they have come up with a multi shot conversion so u can add a magazine to this one like they did with qb78 models. also U CAN ADJ. THE SHOT PRESSURE SOME SO U CAN INCREASE THE AIR RELEASE OR DECREASE IT SOME AS U WANT BUT BE CAREFUL , also know that they have come up with a better bolt so that it is not so loose fitting, u also need to bouble up on the bolt sealing o-ring and ck to see if there are any burs in the breach where the o rings seal

            • John from USA:

              By the way, there are 2 o-rings on the bolt now.

            • Jessica from USA:

              the Beeman QB Chief does not have a mag for this single shot .22 rifle. maybe in the up coming years they might but for now they do not have one for this gun.

            • Art B from USA:

              Care to elaborate on where your finding the Magazines? Looking to buy another Beeman from you. Email me if you don't want to post it.

            • Hunter from USA:

              I found two sites for good magazines for this rifle

          • Hunter from USA asked:

            When I shoot my qb chief, it makes this weird that sounds like a machine gun. The sound lasts from half a second to a couple seconds, and when this happens it wastes a ton of air. I don't know if it's the cold weather or the O-ring has bursted. Please help cause I'm thinking of returning it in for a Benjamin maximus

            • Jason from USA:

              It's called hammer bounce. The hammer is repeatedly knocking the valve open before coming to rest. Typically it's caused by either too much hammer strike (too much hammer spring preload) or by continuing to shoot the rifle well below it's optimal operating pressure. The newer Chief rifles have an adjustable hammer spring...try backing it off.

          • Arnaldo from USA asked:

            What type of o-rings does the Beeman qb chief take?

          • Arnaldo from USA asked:

            What type of o rings does the rifle take? I can't seem to find anything on this subject.

            • Thomas from USA asked:

              Does the qb chief hold co2?

              • Tyler from USA:

                It is not recommended for use with CO2

            • william from USA asked:

              can you get the .22 barrel and replace the .177? it is easy to do. i know i have had to replace the O rings already on my .177 right after i got it, the O rings were chewed up from the factory installation.

              • william from USA asked:

                is it ok to leave some pressure in the rifle? and how much?

                • Tyler from USA:

                  Yes. I would recommend leaving between 1000 and 1500 psi in the gun when storing.

              • Caleb from USA asked:

                Is there potential for a .25 version in the future? I'd like a pcp option for the caliber that's at the entry level price.

                • Tyler from USA:

                  Haven't heard anything about a .25 at this point, but you never know.

              • Julian from USA asked:

                Is the barrel the same as the discovery? As in width

                • Jason from USA:

                  The Chief has a 14mm barrel (0.55"). A Discovery barrel is 7/16" (0.44").

              • Kendell from USA asked:

                is there any regulators made for this pcp yet or know of any compatible regulators made for it to get better shot constitancy and possibly more shots and possible repeater mods or somethign that may fit it to have the ability to use a mag to make it less hassle to reload

                • John from USA:

                  According to Robert Lane website there is now an adjustable regulator for it.

                • Tyler from USA:

                  Not that I have seen, but you might want to check with Robert Lane in the UK.

              • Xavier from USA asked:

                Where can I find instructions with diagrams for takedown, cleaning, trigger adjustment or exploded parts diagram?

              • joel from USA asked:

                Can someone tell me which set of see thru rings that can be used on this gun and still see the iron sights ?

              • Shane from USA asked:

                how long is the barrel?

                • Tyler from USA:

                  21.5"

              • David from USA asked:

                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 .

                • Tyler from USA:

                  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.

              • Scott J from USA asked:

                Can the same power adjuster be installed on the Chief, that the Discovery uses?Size and bolt pattern the same for end cap?

                • gary from USA asked:

                  what is the trigger made of plastic or metal ?

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    Metal

                • Tim from USA asked:

                  What is the foot pounds of energy on the 177 caliber and a 22 caliber I can't seem to find it anywhere

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    The .177 should be around 18-20 FPE and the .22 should be in the Mid to high 20s with a heavier pellet

                • pcp4me from USA asked:

                  If I did not already have a highly modified Disco, I would buy this gun! If it has acceptable accuracy, this is a STEAL! Get em before they raise the price, and THEY WILL! Simply a LOT of gun for the money! Once they realize they can charge $20 - $30 more and still sell the hell out of them, they probably will!

                  • jodi from USA asked:

                    Can I fill this gun with a air compressor?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      If you have a high pressure compressor capable of 2000 psi output, yes. If you mean your shop compressor though, not likely.

                  • Robert from USA asked:

                    I prefer peep sights on rifles that have a front sight. Can the stock rear sight be removed and, if so, is there a peep sight that can mount to the rifle?

                  • Scott J from USA asked:

                    !. Does it have the same barrel as the Discovery does,Can someone mic the o.d.?? 2. Can a Gen 2 M-rod trigger go on this gun,like I have on my Discovery?

                    • Joe from USA:

                      My .22 chief has a 15mm barrel

                    • pcp4me from USA:

                      What is the diameter of the Discovery barrel?

                    • pcp4me from USA:

                      What is the diameter of the Discovery barrel?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      It does not. The chief has a 14mm barrel

                  • Hoosier Daddy from USA asked:

                    Anyone know the factory warranty period on this from Beeman?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      One year

                  • Armando from USA asked:

                    is aluminum made the reservoir or is steel?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      Steel

                  • Anthony from USA asked:

                    Any idea if the stock from the AR2078a would fit this rifle? I really like the Competition-style (Biathlon) stock.

                    • Jason from USA:

                      No, the air tube is a different diameter

                    • pcp4me from USA:

                      I don't know, but it looks suspiciously like an AR 20XX clone! I guess that question needs to go to the manufacturer, or just order the Biathlon stock from some one with a good return policy and try it?

                  • JON from USA asked:

                    Does it have a built in pressure guage?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      Yes

                  • John from USA asked:

                    All of the HPA tanks shown in the PCP Hookup aren't usable without a 2k PSI regulator valve. I'm surprised this hasn't come up sooner with the Benjamin 2k fills. Is there going to be such a regulator available any time soon?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      You don't need a regulated output on your tank to fill a PCP to 2000 psi. Any of the larger tanks, you basically throttle the valve as you fill so you don't overfill. You may want to check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YQrKYbEjsU as it demonstrates it a bit.

                  • Kris from USA asked:

                    Can some1 please do a vid review, I cant find a single 1

                  • Eric from USA asked:

                    What is the threading of the fill cap?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      The fill cap is not threaded. It snaps on and off and is secured via an oring on the gun

                  • michael from USA asked:

                    I have a basic Daystate type thread-on filler for my scuba tank. will that work?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      Not sure what you mean by that. Would have to see a picture.

                  • Curt from USA asked:

                    What county is it made in?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      China

                  • William from USA asked:

                    Is the receiver plastic or metal?

                    • Tim from USA:

                      Metal

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      Samples seen at SHOT were metal

                  • cj from USA asked:

                    can i use a benjamin hand pump to fill this gun?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      Yes

                  • ryan from USA asked:

                    I know Beeman asked (originally) for the gun to not be taken apart. Has anyone gotten into one yet? How similar are the internals to the qb/ar series?

                    • JON from USA asked:

                      The specs indicate 850 FPS in .22. What weight pellet was used to get this result?

                      • Tim from USA:

                        Jsb 15.89 grain generates 831 per second

                      • JON from USA:

                        Aha! In case anyone else needs to know this one, the QB Chief develops 850 fps using a standard weight 14.3 Gr lead pellet.

                      • pcp4me from USA:

                        It does not indicate the weight, but it was most likely the lightest pellet they could find!

                    • richard from USA asked:

                      It looks like a clone of a benjamin maximus and discovery!

                      • pcp4me from USA:

                        Also an adjustable trigger which the Disco does NOT have! I had to do the three screw mod on my Disco to get a nicely adjustable trigger! Also replaced the breech with a multi-shot breech and put a beautiful fancy stock on the gun, bringing the cost to around $600 - $800 total and making the gun WAY different than a stock Disco!

                      • pcp4me from USA:

                        For sure not a clone of the Disco, and doubt the Maximus also. I agree it looks a lot like the Qb78D or the QB 20XX gun. It is about $100 cheaper than a Discovery, and should be in the same class as that gun, which would kinda make the Discovery superfluous? Basically same gun, nicer stock than Disco, and $100 cheaper! Could be they will have to reduce the price of the Disco drastically?

                      • Christophe from USA:

                        A heck of a lot cheaper, and the trigger might be a little better. The stock is a little better, with the cheek swell.

                      • Casey from USA:

                        It looks like a PCP version of the Beeman QB78D, an excellent CO2 rifle. Other than being a bolt action PCP, of which there are many, I don't necessarily see it as a clone of the Disco or Maximus.

                    • Donald from USA asked:

                      What is the bbl length, is this a choked bbl? Tia, Don

                      • Matt from USA:

                        The barrel length is 21.5" and is not choked

                    • cj from USA asked:

                      What is the psi fill on this gun?

                      • Val from USA:

                        2000 PSI

                    • James from USA asked:

                      Is this a new model, or is it a "tweeked" version of another air rifle, like the Benjamin Wildfire that is based on the Crosman 1077 (which BTW, the Wildfire is a "hoot to shoot" - and a true 80 shots per fill)?

                      • Val from USA:

                        It's a new model

                    • MAURICIO MARTINEZ from USA asked:

                      This Beeman air rifle, where is manufactured ?

                      • ryan from USA:

                        China by Shanghai airguns

                      • Matt from USA:

                        This Beeman is manufactured in China

                    • Eugene from USA asked:

                      How accurate is this rifle?

                      • John C from USA:

                        Mine, pictured under customer guns, hits pill bottles at 50 yards. Distance was indicated by the Parralax on my UTG 4-16x50 scope. Not a great way to measure distance, but I think it's pretty close. Used it on several squirrels at 40-45 yards. Shoots 16g Polymags exceptionally well. JSB18.13g are also winners, but I prefer the Polymags.

                        I don't consider 10 yards to be a benchmark for accuracy. Needs to be tested at 25 and 50 yards for accuracy. My disco can keep most pellets under 1 inch 5 shots at 50 yards. Any thing less I would consider to be unacceptable!

                        We're still waiting to get our hands on one, but early reports state that this rifle can achieve excellent to very good groups at 10 yards.

                      Is the stock ambidextrous?

                        Yes

                      What kind of pump is needed?

                      • Val from USA:

                        A standard high pressure hand pump like this one will fill the Chief: Benjamin Hand Pump, Fits Crosman...

                      • JON from USA:

                        Any of the purpose built high pressure pumps, available through Pyramyd or another, inferior provider (sorry, but I couldn't resist). I use a hill pump, on accounta I really like pumps named "Hill" and they make a sturdy, long lasting pump. I really like the idea of filling to only 2000 psi in the field, 2k psi is so easy and fast to fill, and a pump won't run low on air on an extended camping/hunting trip.

                      I'm new to "PCP" fired air rifles. How is it filled? have no idea of the process or tools needed. KenA Severna Park, MD

                      • pcp4me from USA:

                        Unless you want to build muscles and spend a lot of time pumping your gun, I recommend you get a 88 cu ft carbon fiber 4500 psi tank and fill it from that!

                      • JON from USA:

                        All pre charged pneumatic air rifles are filled with a special purpose high pressure pump, such as the hill pump, or, a scuba or carbon fiber tank. PCPs typically use either a standard Foster fitting or something called a BSPP probe to hook the rifle to the pump or tank. Pyramyd provides a description of, and application of, which type of fill connector is needed for each specific gun, when you look up pumps or tanks from the web page the gun occupies. You can also call, or use the chat pop-up to ask any question you want, to get an answer in real time. Whatever you need, the folks at Pyramyd will take care of you.

                        Welcome to PCP Airgunning! Rifles with cylinders of this size are commonly filled with handpumps which operate like a bicycle pump. Here is a video to show you.

                    • Dennis from USA asked:

                      Why does this rifle advertise 2 stage adjustable yet in the Specs sheet says single stage

                      • Matt from USA:

                        Oops! Small typo. This airgun has a 2-stage adjustable trigger.

                    • Jeff from USA asked:

                      What is the air storage tank size?

                      • Tim from USA:

                        I had the same question and according to Peter Rodriguez who works for Beaman it is 136 cc tank

                      • Matt from USA:

                        Still waiting on hard specs for cylinder. We're approximating 135cc
