The R1's beech stock sports a checkered grip and forearm. All the steel has been carefully and expertly machined to make sure your rifle functions flawlessly. This gun will become an heirloom.

Conservatively rated at 1000 fps in .177 cal., that's just right for most shooting disciplines. If you plan to hunt with the R1, the .20 or .22 cal. would be a better choice. The extra power in the larger calibers was not an afterthought when the gun was designed, so you'll be able to harness all the energy you need from bigger and heavier pellets.

The rifle comes with adjustable sights, but hunters and competitive shooters will want to add a scope to experience the extreme accuracy that's built in. The deep dovetail grooves ensure that your mount and scope remain intact through years of use.

Don't forget to pick up a variety of recommended pellets, which are listed under the AMMO link. Select appropriate accessories, including targets and a hunting scope, by clicking on the ACCESSORIES link.

The Beeman R1 is a powerhouse among spring-piston air rifles. Whether you plink, pop paper targets or hunt critters, the R1 fills the bill.

The Rekord trigger, universally accepted as one of the finest on the market, is fully adjustable and delivers ultimate control. The breakbarrel mechanism is smooth and reliable, and the safety engages automatically when the gun is cocked.

Things I liked:

I have two R1s, a .177 I purcheased in 1983 and a .22 I purchased 10 years later. Both triggers are exceptional and both group far better that I can shoot. Fit and finish are excellent. The .177 has a Beeman Blue Ring (aka Hako) 2-7 scope that I like a lot.

Things I would have changed:

Lose the iron sights at the factory and include a trigger shoe. My .22 has a BSA 2-7 scope that may be going away. The gun deserves better.

What others should know:

The Beeman R1 book is a very good read. Both guns seem to like H&N Match. I use the "artillery hold" exclusively.

Things I liked:

Accurate even before it's broken in. Great Rekord trigger, I havent even made any adjustments. Muzzle velocity is as good or better than stated, much unlike RWS claims. Not at all hard to cock.

Things I would have changed:

A bit on the heavy side. A sling is a must for field trips.

What others should know:

This rifle rocks! Very accurate and very consistent, even before break in. I can get fat 1.0" groups @ 50 yards with open sights......not bad at all! Dont take the following info as this being a poorly made rifle, but it seems if you pay about 600 bucks for one there would have been better attention to those details mentioned. I have heard that Weirhrauch was cutting some corners in manufacture, this may be what I've seen. I had reason to remove the stock, and was surprised while inspecting the visible spring tube and other areas hidden by the stock. There were metal shavings left from machining and metal bits still attached at the ends of machined slots and holes. I had expected the interior of the stock would have had a good sanding, and these metal bits would have been removed, but that didnt happen. I took care of the shavings myself, and the big router fuzz left over on the stock can sit there......for now.
