Things I liked:

The perfect budget friendly PCP bullpup

Things I would have changed:

I've owned my Beeman1357 Under Lever Bullpup PCP Air Rifle for a week and in that week I've shot this awesome rifle everyday and it is a joy to use. Of course everyone wants to know about the under lever method of cocking this gun and it is what all budget bullpups should use to cock their rifle it's so easy to do. I also have a Kral .22 Puncher Breaker bullpup and the side lever is difficult to use because of its position at the rear of the rifle. Because this is a bullpup it requires a high mount to get the scope to eye level but tall mounts are all you need. Everyone seems to complain about the trigger but I don't find that a problem. Yes it's heavy but after you've invested some time into shooting your gun it gets easier, because it's heavy it forces you to use good technique. Is the gun accurate? Yes, my backyard it limited to 25 meters but at that distance it is extremely accurate. I recommend Buck-Rail for a suppressor and barrel band to attach a bi-pod!

What others should know:

Make the gun lighter by using a synthetic stock and make the trigger adjustable to satisfy the people that complain about the trigger.

    Things I liked:

    i love the wood stock the handle is great this is my first pcp i love it its so fun to shoot also dont shoot it in your backyard it is a bit loud i bought a hand pump 0 to 3000 is about 140 pumps dont let that keep you away bc its not hard at all to pump its very accurate ive not tried the scope out i put my own scope on it so idk what the scope is like

    Things I would have changed:

    i dont really know what to say maybe make the magazines less plastic feeling other than that its great

    What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP and I must say that this rifle is a blast to shoot. I put a Pinty scope on it plus a DonnyFL threaded adapter and Buck-rail moderator and their barrel band to keep this truly back yard friendly.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger adjustments would be great but there are many videos on the web for fine tuning but I will not mess with it until I have a few hundred pellets thru it.

    What others should know:

    I use a hand pump and I am a disabled veteran with mobility issues. I have to pump in 20 pump intervals which can takes more than an hour due to my disabilities. I need a compressor and tank but just do not have the funds so I will keep to my hand pumping routine until my body says no more

    Things I liked:

    The epitome of KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid). It doesn’t get much better then this, for the price. Worked great, right out of the box. I wanted something I could plink with, and this does an excellent job. Easy and cheap to operate, using pellets easily available at “Wally-World”. Reasonable price, reliable, and accurate, what more could you want? Works for me.

    Things I would have changed:

    A pea-tad heavy. Would like to see a composite/ polymer stock, if possible.

    What others should know:

    Some complained about the trigger, mine worked just fine.

    Underlever very fun shoot without having to take eyes off scope. Very quick follow up shots

    Things I would have changed:

    Better magazine. Metal over plastic, and the ability to buy more from the onset

    What others should know:

    Clean barrel upon arrival. I pulled out dirty rags for over an hour!!!

    Things I liked:

    This has to be one of my "funnest" PCPs. For the price point you get a great bullpup. I'm still working on its favorite projectile but it hasn't seemed too fussy to date. A very handy if slightly heavier 'pup. At a recent 50yd outing it turned in one of the best groups of the day among its stablemates.

    Things I would have changed:

    It is a little on the heavy side so I wouldn't want to stalk with it all day. Mine is a bench queen so it really isn't an issue. The trigger is heavy but is quickly predicable. It has a definite second stage that can be sorted out with little fuss.

    What others should know:

    It struck me as being on the loud side for a .177 caliber PCP, I put a Donny FL moderator on mine and it became very backyard friendly. The stock included baffle in the shrouded barrel really was easy to remove.

    Things I liked:

    I was able to dial in the scope to a 3" spread at 25 yards. With no regulator, you want to the pressure at 2300 to 2900 psi for consistent performance.

    Things I would have changed:

    I bought a hand pump which was a mistake. I need to get a electric pump as the hand pump is a bear above 2300 psi.

    What others should know:

    The price is great for the quality of the unit. Wood finish is high quality. Slightly heavier than I expected.

    Things I liked:

    This is a great under lever bullpup. It is fun to shoot accurate and affordable. With just a little trigger work this rifle is awesome.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a little more refinement on the wood stock or even better a polymer stock.

    Things I liked:

    The stock was beautifully done. Gun felt good in your hands and loved the way it cocked.

    Things I would have changed:

    Tooo loud. Needs baffles. Should add 4 inches to the barrel and baffle. This should help with fps and accuracy and precision. Furthermore, the trigger pull was a mile long but think that can be adjusted.

    What others should know:

    The gun I got was bad right out of the box, I don't know if it got damaged during shipping but there is no way the shot string I paid 20 for 20 for, came from this gun. Still, waiting on PA to contact me if they are going to replace it or what they are doing with it?

    Things I liked:

    Quality seems good....shoots tight groups right out of the box. Underlever design is awesome, I like it much more than bolt actions. Loads pellets smoothly unlike my Flash and even with 24 grain pellets managed 814 fps on the chrono. Love that it doesn't need a fill probe. Well weighted, not overly heavy, and really just a good little gun. I see lots of complaints about the trigger but you know how the internet is. Trigger is absolutely fine.

    Things I liked:

    Looks really cool like a big pistol. Accurate only with heavy ammo.compact cool stock. .177cal.

    Things I would have changed:

    Quality control is iffy. Needs aluminum scope rail. Bolts were loose everywhere! Hammer spring too tight from factory,needs backed down a smidge. For end is too light the rifle isn't balanced to shoot offhand too light but too heavy in the back unbalanced!

    What others should know:

    Research,research and research some more about this air rifle or in general. If you don't own tools or know how to work on it or use it, pass this one up. I worked on mine for 4 days to get it to shoot properly. Chinese guns aren't made tight tolerance. Therefore the rifle is loose and the barrel bores are bigger and only like heavy ammo or slugs. It also doesn't have good power like you think. The trigger is mushy and almost 7lbs! Lube the trigger and fool with it. Got mine down to 3lbs and nearly hole in hole out to 40yrds with 10.5 gr in .177! After 4 days working on it of course! Now I like it more than I did at first but it's too much plastic and non ajustable trigger! Had to work on it a lot. And it's loud! Ed the professional backyard sniper man :)

    Things I liked:

    I did not buy mine from PA due to constant OUT OF STOCK ISSUES . That being said , found in stock and a lower price elsewhere . Not pointing fingers at anyone , just got tired of waiting . This Beeman fills a void other manufactures should fill , sure there are other choices , but this one checks all of the boxes . No more cocking bolt in the north forty or being hard to operate for left handers . I like the smooth underlever and that nothing sticks out on either side . The stock seems very done especially for a PCP in this price range . Built like a tank nothing rattles and has a very solid feel to it , and shoulders well. Got mine in 22 caliber .

    Things I would have changed:

    Everyone and their grandma complains about the trigger and i am no different . The more you shoot it the more you get used to it, something i have got past. Keeping in mind this is a budget friendly PCP so its not perfect . Want something more refined then more dead presidents will be needed . Money spent and saved on this can be used on ammo ( not a bad thing ) . Some manufactures seem to think you need to spend 1,000 or more to buy there products ? Maybe because they use the best materials and not plastic , and machined to exact tolerances increasing overall prices ? Most are out of reach for me and probably most others. Finally something more affordable , and different features .

    What others should know:

    I have against the included scope didn't even use it or look at it . I wanted something with a better sight picture . Installed a 3x12x44mm side focus FFP compact scope only 10 inches long and just over a pound in weight . I used side mounted bipods , and a moderator adapter to accept 1/2 x20 unf threads. Out of the box it has a bark to it , Some neighbors may be offended . Im lucky so far . You get 2 magazines and 2 single shot trays , they are plastic but seem to work well . Very hand pump friendly . At first fill mine had air escaping through the barrel so i kept pumping , after that no other issues . They are shipped empty at least mine was .

    Things I liked:

    Up front I did not buy this from PA. Ran across it while looking for ammo elsewhere. I got such a great deal I had to buy it. The under lever cocking mechanism is excellent very smooth. It is very accurate also

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger is very hard. So hard in fact that it was throwing my shots off enough that I was having a difficult time zeroing to my satisfaction. There is no adjustment without modifying which I do not want to do until it is out of warranty. I removed the stock and very liberally lubed everything with Ballistol. This did help as shown by photo.

    What others should know:

    This gun is great for leftys I am one. This is my first Beeman and I dare say it will not be my last.

    Things I liked:

    I will quantify my review by reporting I did not purchase from PA due to not in stock. Fit n finish good. Unique undelever cocking. Shoulders well. Pretty decent quality for price point. Noce compact size.

    Things I would have changed:

    Under powered, non regulated valving. Drastic drop in fps between shots. Roughly averages 740 fps w/ H&N 14.66 pellets. Trigger is TERRIBLE. Mushy and creepy. Get about 2 mags of usable shots. Beeman supplied scope is junk.

    What others should know:

    I would recommend airgunners spend their money on something else. Avenger is a good choice. Hey Pyramyd Air there is is new brand of air gun out there, Aselkon, I bought one and it is FANTASTIC. Maybe consider bringing in this line.

    Nice short Bullpup, quick follow up shot fun! I got it in.177 cal

    Things I would have changed:

    Regulate it. Make it lighter, there is a whole lot of unnecessary wood in the stock. Sell extra magazines!

    What others should know:

    My chronometer recorded the first shot after being charged to 3000psi at 940fps using 7.6 grain gamo match pellets. Every shot lost a little speed, with the 36th shot dropping to 750fps, with 1400psi indicated. This was after adjusting CW per page 6 in the manual until the hammer will not catch, then back off until cocking is reliable.
