Things I liked: this little rifle is an exceptional value.the trigger is better than on guns that cost three times as much.it is extremely accurate at 10 meters with most all pellets.the length of pull is not a problem for me as it gets your eye close to the rear peep sight.when your shooting session is over it can be degassed with the included degassing tool.i highly recommend this little gem.
Things I would have changed: a reseal kit included would be nice for when the gun eventually develops a leak(all pcp and co2 guns do).a warning label should be on the co2 chamber to inform the user that the chamber cap can not be removed when the gun is charged,and that goes for all guns with this style chamber.
What others should know: at this price point all air gun enthusiasts NEED this little butt kicker in their collection.
Things I liked: Everything. Gun is easy to load, shoot, and hit what you're aiming at. All controls are easy to use with the exception being the safety which is difficult to operate. This may become easier to use after the gun is broken in.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: The rear peep sight is so small that I couldn't see anything. I opened it up with a 7/64 drill bit which was a big improvement from stock. Mine averages 550fps with the H&N Sport 13.7gr pellet.
Things I liked: Gun balances extremely well in your hands when standing. The airgun is generally not pellet picky and does very well with lead free pellets too. Accuracy at 10-20 Meters is awesome. Have shot it out to 30-40 yards also to hit cans without any trouble. I like that this airgun has a degassing tool so you can purge what is left of the CO2 without having to dry fire until pressure is low enough to remove the cap.
What others should know: I purchased the .22 Model. With this gun at 10 Meters you get a single ragged hole with RWS Hobby Wadcutter pellets. The diopter sights are easy to get used to and work well.

My favorite CO2 target rifle that I own (and probably my favorite pellet rifle period) is the version of this with a side cocking lever instead of a bolt. It is an AR2078B. I've had it about two years, but I've never seen it for sale on PA. Is it available? I wouldn't mind picking up another because my son likes shooting it so much, too.
I bought it as a Beeman SAG AR2078B-177 from another source. It came with a side lever and diopter target sites like on the thumbhole AR2078. It's a CO2, but I find the small side lever loading far superior to the bolt. After further checking, I bought it in December of 2017. As my 16 YO sun puts it "Dad, why did you even buy any other air rifles?"
I've not seen a side lever version of a QB/AR2078 for sale in the USA...anywhere. Would be interested to know more about it.
Can the front sight be moved back so a moderator can be added?
It certainly appears to be movable.
Echoing the question from Ryan, and more: Can any one tell me what inserts are compatible with the front sight? What sizes are the front and rear apertures as delivered with the rifle? Does the Air Arms Front Sight Inserts, 4ct item, item # Air Arms Front Sight Inserts,..., offer larger or smaller inserts? I need to see more of the target, so would like a larger front aperture.
