Beeman Double Barrel, Multi-caliber, Air Rifle
The shooter’s dilemma:
For years airgunners have had to make the hard choice between the lighting fast .177 caliber and the knockdown power of the .22.
Fortunately, Beeman threw that choice out the window with the Beeman Double Barrel Air Rifle!
Featuring not one--but two separate caliber barrels, easily switch back and forth with the dial located at the end of the barrel break. Shoot your choice of .177 or .22 pellets--or for even more fun, shoot booth barrels at the same time!
With a powerful spring-piston powerplant, send pellets downrange at speeds up to 1000 fps in.177 and 830 fps in .22. The finely polished hardwood stock makes for a comfortable hold, and the 2-stage trigger can be customized to your liking. Each Double Barrel includes a 4x32 scope to help zero in on your targets. With two rounds in the air, no soda bottle will be able to withstand a direct hit!
For a one of a kind shooting experience that lets you call the shots, choose the Beeman Double Barrel.

Things I liked: This gun is surprisingly accurate and powerful. I get 480-520 fps with Crosman hollow point .22 (18 grain) pellets. It is almost as accurate as my Ruger 10/22 rifle with standard ammo. At 50 yards I can get a grouping of 4" which isn't bad for using cheap pellets. It is also surprisingly quiet. Much less noise than my CO2 powered air rifle.
Things I would have changed: The trigger safety is finicky. If you don't push it forward just right it will fall back to safe.
What others should know: This takes a good bit of force to cock the gun. My girlfriend couldn't bring the barrel all the way down to reset the piston.
Things I liked: Don't usually add "gimmicky" guns like this to my collection but I just couldn't resist the novelty of shooting two different caliber pellets at the same time. Chinese airguns have come a long way & overall fit & finish is pretty good. Firing behavior is surprisingly smooth & quiet, & although there is a bit of creep in the trigger's 2nd stage it's predictable. The rear sight works quite well but since I have no interest in switching between either caliber before I shoot I'll just leave the valve in place that fires both barrels at once & install a diopter sight adjusted for point of aim exactly between the two pellets. Haven't shot it a whole lot yet but took it out in the backyard & & played around with premiers in the .22 barrel & premier lights in the .177. Pellets hit about 3/4' apart at about 50 feet, accuracy is pretty good & it hits hard. Can't wait to give both barrels to some pest birds!
Things I would have changed: Knob on valve could be thinner so line of sight could be lower, also as is common on less expensive guns that come with a scope the scope is a real cheapo & i'd be amazed if it held up if it was actually used on this gun.
What others should know: It's different & it's fun!

Does it also have the flip up looking sight that the .177 only gun has?
Where is this rifle made. Thanks
