Beeman QB78S CO2 Air Rifle
The perfect plinker now with an all-weather synthetic stock! Shooting this bolt-action couldn't be easier as there's no pumping necessary! Simply load up 2, 12 gram CO2 cartridges, put a round in the chamber, and you're ready to shoot.
This gun features an ergonomic thumbhole stock with pistol grip for a stable, comfortable hold. Adjust the single stage trigger and rear sight to your preference. Customize the rifle with the Weaver/Picatinny rail located in front of the foregrip. A great gun for plinking cans in your backyard or shredding paper targets.

Things I liked: Exceptionally accurate, simple, very comfortable stock, light, either one or two cartridges may be loaded. It's nice to being able to load one full cartridge and one empty one if I only want to shoot 25 or 30 shots. At ten yards, it stacked 5 shots, center of a 1/4" bulls eye, one on top of the other for a 5 shot group of .20 inches. The trigger has a nice feel and is light. It loves H&N 8.4g Field Target Trophy in 4.5mm. I have not had a single flyer in the first tin of 500.
Things I would have changed: There is no gas discharge port, The only way to deplete the CO2 to take the pressure off the CO2 cap so the cap can be unscrewed to change the 12g cylinders is to dry fire until all the gas is gone. Having a discharge valve would be a great improvement. The open sights are 1950's crude, stamped steel and there is no windage adjustment and elevation adjustment is accomplished with a notched ramp, which is also only minimally precise. Thats fine for shooting cans, but inadequate for precise target shooting. Actually though, the accuracy is so good that not installing a good scope on it does it an injustice anyway. I installed an Optima 3-9x40 AO I had laying around and that seems to be perfect for it.
What others should know: The CO2 cap had grit in the threads and was difficult to screw down or unscrew. Cleaning and lightly oiling the threads on the cap and gas tube solved the problem The bolt was dry and needed a drop of oil. It is a great target and plinking rifle and wonderful not having to pump it up. At about 6 ft lbs of energy, it is only about half of the commonly accepted standard of 12 ft lbs required for hunting small small game. I would not consider it by any stretch, sufficient for hunting anything bigger than a frog. I'll probably buy another just because I like it so much. lol
Things I liked: This is the gun to buy period! I absolutely love it, so much that I modified the internals, slapped on a nice scope, bipod and a DonnyFL to make it library quiet. This thing shoots dime sized groups from 21 yards plus, I am now shooting 13.43gr pellets at 630fps and 5.5gr pellets at 800fps and get about 50 usable/consistent shots at least. This gun is amazing that is all I can say, I wish they made a version that would take an 88g tank!
Things I would have changed: Make an 88g tank version, other than that this thing is perfect!
What others should know: I made the mistake of buying an Umarex Fusion 2 and that was trash so I bought this instead and modified it, much better gun! Also this gun loves pellets in the 7gr range like the RWS Match 10 and Air Arms Diabolo Express.
Things I liked: Very accurate have a 4x16 scope 0n mine may be overkill but it's fun to watch the pellets hit the target. like that it has rails on the front end easy to put on a bipod. .177 cal shoots really good groups with crosman hollow points. lots of fun for the money.
Things I would have changed: wish it was not so hard to cock.
What others should know: you have to let co2 to run out all the way before you can change it out.
