Things I liked: What an amazing shooter! I bought this because it was really the only option for a biathlon stock. From other reviews I thought it would shoot well, but I had no idea how well! After mounting the rear sight and installing two CO2 cartridges, I dry fired it three times to get some gas through the system and then shot 5 RWS Diabolo Basic .177 pellets ($6.99 for 300 at local store) essentially through the same hole. Literally the first 5 shots ever fired and they are half the size of a dime. Wow. This was the diopter peep sight at 10 meters off sandbags. The trigger feels good and predictable. Finish of the stock is nice. Impressive overall for $195.
Things I would have changed: Better rear sight. I think this is nylon, and it is a bit flexible, so I can see it getting out of zero with a little bump. The butt stock is pretty short for me, with the result that the sight picture isn't the best. I will probably add 3 inches to it.
Things I liked: For the price, AR2078A has an excellent trigger and great accuracy for 10m target shooting. For me, the weight of the rifle is just right.
Things I would have changed: For the rifle itself, nothing! A better user guide would be a good thing, and some instruction for the initial cleaning of the barrel (a 'must do') would benefit some purchasers.
What others should know: -I thought I'd make an extension for the stock, but I changed my stance a bit and adapted. I'm now very comfortable with it. -The trigger and sear required bit of polishing to progress from 'very good' to 'excellent'. 1/2 hour well spent.
Things I liked: The rifle has lots of heft ~ absolutely necessary for a good target rifle. I like the gas bleeder ~ saves my thumb from shooting the remaining few cc's of CO2 from the cartridges.
Things I would have changed: For me ~ the fancy open sights were a waste ~ because I scope everything.
What others should know: This is my second Beeman CO2 rifle. I am a target shooter ~ and don't want to fiddle with pumping up a gun while I'm lining up a shot. The first was a 22 caliber ~ not as accurate as the .177 ~ but I was used to them as a youngster. All-in-all I am having lots of fun with The Beeman Q2078A ~ the Biathlon stock is great ~ I mounted a 3X9-40 Nikon on it ~ shoot at 15 yards ~ I'm sure it would handle more ~ but that's all the longer my basement is.

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.
