Beeman QB Chief PCP Air Rifle
Tech Tip: When mounting a scope with a 40mm objective lens or larger, it may be necessary to remove the rear sight.
A balance of performance, quality features, and price point, the Chief is Beeman's first foray into budget-friendly, entry-level PCP guns.
With a look that harkens back to classical styling, the Chief’s hardwood stock offers a lot to love over its synthetic counterparts. Each stock is proudly embossed with yellow-hued Beeman logo. This airgun steps up the game with an adjustable 2-stage trigger—a great feature for an entry level PCP. For sighting, shooters can use the included fiber optic sights or mount their optics to the 11mm Dovetail rail for precision shots.
Filling to 2000 psi, users can easily fill their Chief's 136cc cylinder with a handpump, or small tank for shot after repeating shot. Load up a pellet and send it spiraling downrange at speeds up to 1000 fps (in .177). Beeman’s specs claim this PCP can shoot up to 50 rounds in .177 or 35 in .22.
If you are looking to break into the exciting world of PCP airgunning, grab the Chief, and be pleased with its performance, quality, and its price!

Things I liked: The overall feel of the gun is a solid, it feels like a rifle, not a cheap toy. The open sites were very nice, I removed mine, very easy to see with, but I wanted a scope. Simple to take off, front and rear were both attached with threaded screws/bolts. Large easy to grab bolt handle. I'm at 5'9", this gun shoulders perfectly for me. Rubber stock pad, not some "rest on it" and it'll fall over slick plastic pad. Comes with a degassing tool. The Chief is a perfect fit for my UTG 4-16x50 scope with 2 piece high dove tail rings.
Things I would have changed: Improve the wood finish. Had to think hard about not giving a five star rating, I really like this rifle. If I could, it would be 4.9 stars. Out of the box, I could only find two small flaws. A tiny scratch/tool mark on the top of the barrel band. A tiny spot of stain missing just inside the stock's screw mounting hole. That was me being picky trying to find any problems to note out of the box. Now, having the rifle for a month, it is very easy to scratch the stocks finish. Added sling mounts, before marking and drilling, I applied low tack painters tape to the stock. The tape took of some of the finish when I removed it. This is the only reason why I'm giving it 4 stars. The bluing has rubbed thin as well while handling the barrel. Refinish will be in its future, but I am having way to much fun shooting it to even bother. It'll get used and scratched allot more before I even think about redoing the finishes.
What others should know: It's loud! I was a bit surprised at the bark. I would put it under my .22 rim fire rifle, maybe about or slightly more than the volume of a .22 short. The action was gritty, everything needed a good cleaning. The safety feels chunky to me. Tip, If you're taking the stock off, put it to "safe' to tap the safety out of the trigger housing. Check all of the screws out of the box. If you tear down the gun, expect to replace one or two of the three o-rings on the barrel. Burs are plenty on my rifles internals, these took a few nicks out of one of my barrel o rings. Time spent de-burring various parts netted a far better feel to me. 16g Polymags are grouping at less than an inch at 40 yards. Pill bottles are no match for this rifle. 18.3 JSB's are also shooting great, but I feel the Polymag is better fit. I usually hunt Red fox squirrels between 25-30 yards. This gun had me take my first four at 35-45 yards with ease.
Things I liked: This is a nice rifle for the money! I took it straight out of the box no bore cleaning nothing I went outside with a plethora of pellets and got to work. I started by zeroing the scope a centerpoint I got for it from here for 59.95 it is a good scope. then I started shooting 7.0 grain JSB match target pellets JSB sport, JSB heavy, and RWS meisterkugeln they shot of but groups were not real great. I thought well lets see if it likes heavy pellets so I went to JSB exact beast diablo 16.20 gr it did better with these. next up was RWS SUPERMAG FIELD LINE 9.3GR THIS WAS THE TICKET!!!!. I shot a 10 shot group at 20yrds under a dime actuall 0.517". with the trigger on this that is awesome the trigger is eehh. It was now time for the chrony. unfortunately I waited too long in the evening I started with the JSB exact beast diablo I got .663 .663 .666 .671 then I lost light, and my chrony couldn't read anymore.
Things I would have changed: If you have watched any youtube reviews and read the comments I think its airgun web tv with rick, you see a lot of people talking about the bolt popping up when firing, this is true and happens to mine, the fix would be a thicker o-ring at the front of the bolt I believe the bolt is sloppy, but as rick stated in the comments it does not affect accuracy as you can see by my 0.517" group. The trigger creeps and is a little crunchy it is hard to tell when it is going to break ive put about 150 shots through it and am kinda getting use to it but I don't like it. I have not tried to adjust it yet. I noticed at first pulling the bolt back was crunchy and hard to get the sear to latch this improved with use.
What others should know: This is a nice gun for $180 and a pcp to boot it needs a few refinements, someone handy can make this a great rifle. The rifle does not like starting out at 2000 psi chrony numbers increased with each shot to 1800 psi so that is were I started filling it to. I am using nitrogen and a 74 cu ft air venture carbon fiber tank, so I don't know how long to hand pump I have one but don't like to use it lol. This gun shoots great accuracy wise straight out of the box, it needs a little break in time, and a few little tweaks, bigger o ring on bolt, and trigger work or adjustment it does not really feel 2 stage it creeps back and then just fires. I say buy it for the money you can not go wrong even if left as is. It also has a very nice stock the raised cheek is nice, and the truglo sights are nice even though I did not use them you can and I'm sure they would work great. Some people have said the barrel band was loose on theirs mine is not it is fine. Start with RWS supermag field line 9.3 gr
Things I liked: Wow talk about being impressed. Great looking air rifle. The wooden stock was awesome and the metal construction was solid. Very powerful and a solid performer. A great buy especially with the combo Benjamin Pump..This is my first PCP and glad i chose this model.
Things I would have changed: I would specify in the description, that use of the hand pump can be strenuous for people over 50. This air rifle can be pressurized to 2000psi . it takes about 100 strokes on the Benjamin pump to achieve this psi. There is an excellent video on YOUTUBE about proper use of the pump and all buyers should review this video. Also the gun must be cocked before filling.Once you do, filling the rifle is much easier..I would also recommend adding a noise reduction shroud as an option.
What others should know: i fired several rounds without adjusting the sights that are provided with this gun. They were well grouped and extremely accurate. The gun when fired indoors is loud and my break barrel of the same caliber makes about the same level of noise. The Chiefs is just more high pitched. A noise reduction shroud would be nice if you intend to shoot indoors or in backyard.

is there any regulators made for this pcp yet or know of any compatible regulators made for it to get better shot constitancy and possibly more shots and possible repeater mods or somethign that may fit it to have the ability to use a mag to make it less hassle to reload
Not that I have seen, but you might want to check with Robert Lane in the UK.
Where can I find instructions with diagrams for takedown, cleaning, trigger adjustment or exploded parts diagram?
Can someone tell me which set of see thru rings that can be used on this gun and still see the iron sights ?
