Beeman R7 Elite Series Combo
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: This is a very great gun! The quality is outstanding as well as the accuracy. Just got it and already put around 70 rounds through it. Got sub 1/4 inch groups at 25 yds. Already claimed 2 starlings. I wish every springer were this easy to cock and this accurate. The Mantis scope fits the gun very well. Very beautiful gun and very happy I bought it.
Things I would have changed: Perhaps place the safety in a different place, but no big deal.
Things I liked: This rifle is beautiful. It appears to to be of top German quality. The stock and metal finish are perfect. The scope is clear and brighter than expected. Also very adjustable. The trigger is outstanding. The barrel is top notch. Everything is great. Except the final machining of the tube.
Things I would have changed: I would have rebuilt it or sent it back ASAP. Instead I relied on the reviews of others when I should have trusted my observations. It shot vertical strings while windage was always spot on. After reading reviews suggesting it would break in and settle down around fifty rounds or that it was just dieseling grease in the chamber I was convinced It would improve. After fifty rounds it still shot three inch vertical strings at twenty-five feet. I should not have proceeded. Instead I dumped about $150 into it to fix some of the poor final machine work. That was because I had held on to it after the thirty day period.
What others should know: The receiver tube is very well and has holes in it for trigger group pins, safety and the pump arm. Most of these holes had sharp, jagged edges that should have been chamfered. Instead, the rifle had been assembled with these sharp edges that cut the seal and gouged deep grooves in the tube, piston skirt and seal. Fortunately the deepest gouges were aft of the piston seal. It took a 240 grit hone to even approach getting them out. So the clearance is obviously opened up a bit. You can still see the scratches a bit but nothing rises up to damage the seal upon reinstalling. I then used a 320 then 400 grit hone then a cobbled together hone in steps up to 2000 grit. Same with the piston. Maybe it is too slick for grease to stick but is sure looks great. Unfortunately I have no way to address the breach seal. It looks like it was surfaced with grinder. Still, ten shots after rebuilding it shoots >dime sized groups at 20 feet. Hopefully it lasts. The Vortek kit is outstanding.
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.
