Beeman R7 Elite Series Combo

  • Spring-Piston
  • Breakbarrel
  • 2-stage adjustable Rekord trigger
  • Rubberized buttpad

  • Adjustable rear sight and globe front sight

The Beeman R7 Elite is an accurate fun and easy shooting youth airgun. In effect, it's a miniaturized version of the R9, making the R7’s features are head and shoulders above most youth air guns.

Featuring a gorgeous checkered stock, the R7’s small size is easy to manage, and its shorter barrel makes it easy to cock without reducing its accuracy. The R7 is all metal and wood with no plastic parts to be found externally.

Featuring the famed 2-stage Rekord trigger of the R9 with its exceptionally crisp breaks adds to the quality of the R7’s build. You don’t usually see an adjustable trigger this good on a youth rifle, and it really aids its ability to place accurate shots. Each R7 Elite comes with a mounted Mantis 3-9x40 AO Rifle Scope that keeps your targets nice and close.  Remove the scope to access the open sights.

All-in-all an excellent youth rifle with a fit and finish worthy of heirloom status.

Things I liked: I had serious accuracy issues with this Beeman R7. The problem I was experiencing was inconsistent pellet speeds that caused scattered patterns or vertical shot strings up to 4-inches! For two weeks, and over 500 shots, I waited for the R7 to break in and start shooting right! At the height of my frustration, I considered sending the rifle back within the 30-day window. Instead, I submitted a ticket and STACEY H replied, It sounds like the issue would be with the lock up mechanism.  Are you placing the rifle on a rest when shooting? Could it be possible that sometimes you place it a little more firmly and maybe the barrel is starting to break back open, causing the loud shot and air escaping before the pellet?” I thought, “There is no way that is the problem!” So, I went home and tried shooting while “gently” laying the R7 onto the bean bag and immediately started shooting acceptable groups at 25-yards. Since then, I have shot another 300 rounds and the R7 keeps grouping well.

Things I would have changed: Out of the box, nothing if you want to keep a classic a classic. But for those that want to modernize it, in addition to Vortek kits, I would like to see a gas piston aftermarket upgrade. I think it would make this great little gun even smoother and more consistent. Even using the hold technique and proven pellets, the decades old spring design is a little inconsistent in temperature changes and as the pellet count increases in a shooting session; more on that below. The Mantis 3-9x40 Scope is fantastic but overkill for this little springer. I am considering swapping it with a 3-9x32 on one of my more powerful air rifles. It is so big that it makes the rifle a little top heavy meaning that a shooter needs to be aware of rotational torque as the rifle completes its firing cycle. Also, I removed the iron sights as they made cocking a little painful and they were just in the way when using the scoped. I wish they offered a muzzle break version with the scope kit.

What others should know: If I shoot 20-30 shots in rapid succession it seems like the tube, piston, spring and seal start to heat up and cause minor inaccuracy issues. It feels like to me that if I shoot 10-shots then let the gun rest for a moment, I can keep my run of sub 1 groups going without an odd flyer. I found that my R7 does not like,JSB Match Diabolo Exacts 8.44g! It does like RWS Hobby and Meisterkugeln a lot! Second it likes H&N Sport and Field Target Trophy. I picked the Beeman R7 due to the checkered stock and Im glad that I did. I really like the additional grip when standing and shooting off-hand and adds grip to the small stock. If I had to do it over again, I would have had Pyramyd Air install the Vortek kit, not for additional power but for better power regulation due to better spring consistency. I will install one myself but for the same amount of money, they would have done it for me before shipping.

Things I liked: Walked into a gun store back in the early 1980's looking for a cheap bb gun and after an hour of persuasion walked out with a R7. The salesmen swore I'd use my R7 more than any other gun I own and 30+ years later he was right. I'm suburban with neighbors on both sides but we all back up to high power line fields so we get lots of unwanted chucks, squirrels, possum, deer, etc. No one has ever heard me shoot my R7 from my back windows/porch. Easy to cock, very accurate, great trigger. My eyes are getting worse so I just bought an unmagnified Red Dot scope (FieldSport RD-D002RG-DOVE) and it's heaven. Great air gun, great scope. So 30+ years with this R7 and I'm real glad I got talked into it. I don't see how I could have made a better choice.

Things I would have changed: This is a great selection in and of itself but really shines in you're in a suburban setting where you don't want to be seen or heard. Nothing needs to be changed on this air rifle.

What others should know: Been using 5g pellets and they work ok. I'm going to try a little heavier next. The scope I mentioned is only $24 so that might be a cheap option for your first scope. The R7 is not the fastest, lightest, meanest looking air rifle out there but you might not be able so find one which is more fun to shoot. I've never had to replace anything on this air rifle and the spring seems to have as much kick as the day I bougtht. If I was just starting out today with air rifles I'd put this at the top of the list but I'd also check out some of the NP2 air rifles. Never shot one but the NP2 technology seems like a better design than a spring?

Things I liked: I like everything about my Beeman R7! It is lightweight, compact, balanced and fun and easy to shoot! It is very accurate with most high quality pellets. It has a light cocking pressure and therefore invites long shooting sessions. It won't wear you out cocking it! It is very well made and exudes quality with great wood and good bluing. So totally happy I bought it and would buy it again in a minute!

Things I would have changed: absolutely nothing

What others should know: This is an absolutely great first air rifle for all ages!
