    Things I liked:

    Beautiful fit and finish all around. I have the R9 in .20 caliber and it is a very accurate shooter with plenty enough punch to take out starlings.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Worth every penny

    Things I liked:

    This gun is quality at its finest. Yes, you'll spend a little more for it but after you have it and have shot it awhile you'll be glad you made the choice. Accuracy is outstanding. I found that a heavier flat nosed pellet shoots the most accurate for me. I put a Hawke 4X32 scope along with a double fixed ring set-up with 4 set screws on each ring that was a Hawke set-up also. I've had numerous other 177 cal pellet guns RWS diana, Benjamin, Ruger, the model 34 RWS with open sights I would back, but everything else does not compare to the R9. if you want 1/4 inch groupings at 25yds this is the gun for you...

    Things I would have changed:

    Your gonna need to take off front sight from barrel if you add a scope or you'll have a blur through your scope. They just slide on a groove and you can easily tap it forward to remove. I do wish this gun was offered in a nitro-piston so you could leave it cocked for the unexpecting sparrow to drop into it's death,because once you have this gun sighted in it stays on zero and will be the most accurate pellet gun you'll own. When I'm gone I'm sure my grandson will be able to pass it on too.

    What others should know:

    I'm not just bragging this gun up, from the perfect trigger pull to the accuracy you'll be happy you purchased this pellet rifle.

    Things I liked:

    I bought the .22 version and wow is all I can say when I got to shooting. Trigger is probably the best in its class (better than Air Arms in my humble opinion). After cleaning the barrel, accuracy was another wow factor. With only 75 shots through the barrel (far from broken in), I started to get <1/2 inch 5 shot groups at 25 yards with Predator GTOs. Stretched it out to 50 yards and I was getting 5 shots under 1 inch with Predator GTOs. The 16 grain JSBs were shooting pretty darn well too.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would maybe have liked to have a muzzle brake on it like the previous model. Although, the iron sights are good too.

    What others should know:

    If you are a tall guy with long arms, the rifle might seem a little small. It almost feels like a carbine in my opinion. I recommend a mil-dot scope for you peeps interested in buying; Having the hold-over knowledge is useful and this rifle is capable of taking small game at up to 80 yards in the right conditions. I recommend the .22 version if you want to reach those distances.

    Things I liked:

    The finish of the stock and barrel are flawless. Trigger is great also.

    What others should know:

    I'm new to air gunning, and I didn't realize how much a springer could loosen stock screws. I lost one of the forearm screws. But when I emailed Pyramyd, they were very helpful with a prompt reply and sent me a new screw in the mail for free. Great customer service by showing some grace to the new guy. Following their advice, I used a little blue loctite on the stock screws and no problems since.

    Things I liked:

    Beautiful fit and finish. Wood and steel is as nice as I have seen. Very smooth and slick cocking. Shoots excellent with GTO pellets and pushes the pellets in the low 800s. Shoots inexpensive Crosman premier pellets almost as well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I would change.

    What others should know:

    This is a hold sensitive air rifle but once you settle on a shooting technique, accuracy and grouping is excellent for a spring powered Air gun. If you are sensitive to recoil and a bit of spring noise then this gun is not for you. Mine provides in excess of 17 foot pounds of energy with GTO pellets and a couple of foot pounds lower with H&N 14.66 grain pellets.

    Things I liked:

    Beautiful rifle. Metal and wood are extremely well finished. I am happy that Air Venturi is having the rifles built with the Beeman logo. Ive always wanted a Beeman. Right out of the box the rifle shot very well. No dieseling. It shot in very fast. No strange noises or twang. My rifle does seem to prefer medium weight pellets and the heavier pellets. RWS Supermag , H&N Baracuda Match 4.50 , Baracuda FT 4.51 , and JSB Exact Heavy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have the option of iron sights or the smooth breech with a muzzle weight.

    What others should know:

    Using Baracuda FT with the Hawke 3x9x40 Airmax, I can hit a 1 inch target at 60 yards most of the time. The R9 is accurate enough to make even me look good. Definitely a serious rifle for an air rifle enthusiast.

    Things I liked:

    Quality of build, nice woodwork on the stock, smooth action, very little felt recoil, accuracy - although I needed to readjust the sights after 400 rounds. Seems perfect now.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I dislike about this gun is the fact you have to disengage the safety for every shot.

    Things I liked:

    Great quality at this price range. 1/4" groups at 20 yds. with H&N Barracuda Hunter Extreme pellets. Good trigger out of the box, great with some tweaking. Very quiet with subsonic pellets without any suppression (legal in NJ where I live with $#@#% gun laws) making it perfect for backyard safaris. I was looking for a small game air rifle at a married with kids affordability and I found it. It's an awesome value.

    Things I would have changed:

    The safety cannot be re-engaged once it has been switched off.

    Things I liked:

    The Beeman R9 is an excellent break barrel air rifle. I purchsed the .20 (5mm) caliber because it is my favorite caliber for air rifles. The 5 mm caliber has a flatter trajectory than the .22 and is more efficient than either the .177 or the .22. Its too bad the 5mm caliber is being pushed out of the market. I still have my old 1971 Sheridan Silver Streak 5mm pump-up air rifle and it still brings down the bushytails. I have shot about 600 pellets thru the R9 so far and I find it to be very accurate and a pleasure to shoot. I did make some changes, I replaced the rear barrel mount sight with a Williams receiver mount peep sight and it is much better for my 78 year old eyes. The one thing I do not like is the front globe sight. I am used to an open blade front sight and looking thru a hole to find my target is a distraction. I will probably change it to a blade if I can find a way to do it. I have a small 1 x 6 – 24 scope that I use occasionally but most of the time I like good iron sights. I am very pleased with my purchase and I shoot air rifles almost every day

    Things I liked:

    First I hope the mods would welcome a concise review/rating on the history of an older model. I have an 2008 model with no sights. RWS break front and scope rails.. I am VERY interested in seeing holding and if possible shooting one of today's. Even when I got mine the reviews I've read here are right on the little 10 bull single multi-shot hole :) First and foremost, the trigger is fantastic! Set the break and the 1st stage travel and shoot all day comfortably knowing its not the gun the majority if 1 out of a dozen outings isnt so good. The spring vibration is very manageable and getting out what the gun does is the training in shooting and the pellets. You have a rifle that will NOT let you down! So feel good about the investment ! Ive never gone wrong with paying more and getting sooo much better and the R9 is one of those! Pencil eraser tips from 65 feet! Once you command your springer. I wish all those who purchase the R9 enjoy it as much as me.

    Things I would have changed:

    Perhaps a vibration dampeners. They exist but I haven't seen one in some time and they were ugly non functional power stereeing front wheel drive boots. There are double piston recoil offset pistols by Diana and they rock!

    What others should know:

    Go through the tins like beer at a ball game! You relax more, focus better and improve your accuracy and relaxation as shooting an R9 should be!

    Things I liked:

    Absolutely WOW I took it out of box and it was dead on at 25 yards but the rifle itself was a work of art. Plenty of tack driving power made my Benjamin 342 look powerless, squirrels are definitely shaking in their boots. I got this rifle by asking the gunsmith who rebuilt my 342 out of all air rifles which he would recommend he said the R9 is the one he owned . I'll get him to do upgrade next year.Great Rifle Thanks

    Things I would have changed:

    Lengthen stock by a few inches it's a little short for me ,but that's for me.

    Things I liked:

    Worth the extra $$$. Good quality German made rifle. Blueing is attractive, beechwood stock feels good in the hand. Short barrel is easy to cock. Accuracy is consistent and true in .22 caliber. I'm scoped with a Leapers 3 X 9 X 50mm. One shot humane kills on yard pests with an authoritative whack upon contact with both 14 and 18 grain pellets. Worth the wait if the R9 is on backorder. Purchase Pyramyd's 10 for $10 shop test to insure your rifle is working properly from the factory. Mine chronographed at an average spread of 657 fps. You can't go wrong with this springer.

    Things I would have changed:

    Can't think of any.

    What others should know:

    A worthy replacement for the legendary Beeman R1 from what I'm told.

    Things I liked:

    During 2013 I purchased an R-9 in .177. Recently, looking to buy a nice rifle in .22 cal, I researched other European springers. As much as I'd thought of owning something different, I settled on another R-9. The newer models have a newly designed stock, adding a cheek piece on both sides, though the profile is the same as the earlier stock. Accuracy, high quality, crisp trigger, smooth cocking and a superb finish make the R-9 a winner. Not much I can add to the already glowing reviews on these and other pages. Plain and simple, the R-9 is a fantastic shooter.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing whatsoever.

    What others should know:

    Shoots a variety of pellets well.

    Things I liked:

    Smooooth operation! Powerful yet refined, more accurate than I expected, and easier to shoot repeatedly than either of my other two springers. Some break-barrels worry me about cocking effort possibly bending them...this one feels like you could break loose the lugnuts on a rusted Peterbilt and still shoot a match with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see those brass screw cups for the stock screws as standard, that's all.

    What others should know:

    Got the .20, might have to add the .17 & the .22!
