One of the more powerful guns in the Beeman line, the RX-2 isn't a traditional spring gun. Instead of a coiled steel spring, the piston is filled with air. It's like the gas spring that holds up the back door of a minivan or hatchback car. Instead of compressing a steel spring, you're compressing a column of air. You don't have to fill the gas spring because no air ever leaves it.

When you go hunting with a gun that has a gas spring, you never have to worry about the spring taking a "set." When you cock a gun with a metal spring, you're supposed to shoot it right away. If you leave it cocked too long (and do that too many times), the spring loses strength, remains more compressed when it's uncocked and delivers lower power. That won't happen with a gas spring!

In any caliber, the RX-2 makes a great hunting rifle. In .22 cal., it delivers over 20 foot-pounds.

Includes 1" scope rings, medium profile, vertical scope stop in one ring, 2 screws per base & 4 screws per ring cap.

Here are the benefits of a gas-piston over a spring-piston powerplant:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

The breakbarrel mechanism of the RX-2 is just like the one you'd find on a gun with a metal spring. Dressed in an ambidextrous beech Monte Carlo stock with a raised cheekpiece, the rifle has a long forearm, grip cap and white line spacers in the buttpad. The 11mm grooves make it a cinch to install a scope. High-quality workmanship is evident all around, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a gun made as well.

Don't forget to pick up a variety of specially recommended pellets, which are listed in the AMMO link. Our ACCESSORIES link lists scopes that can take the power of the RX-2, as well as some targets, cleaning gear and safety glasses.

Things I liked: Accuracy came on quick. I installed a Leupold VX-III 4.5 to 14 with AO turned down to 25 yards. I used the Beeman one-piece mount with stop pin. I cleaned all the threads with alcohol and used blue loc-tite on the screws. So far so good. It's is shooting dime sized groups at 20 yards and nothing has come loose. However, I have put less than 100 pellets through her. She really likes Crosman Premier Heavy pellets as does my Beeman R9 in 0.177 caliber. She is hold sensitive and like I have heard others say she does like to rest on human flesh. She is a shooter and a keeper. This is my first 0.20 caliber pellet rifle and I have no regrets...

Things I would have changed: The stock had a blemish on it that sort of drove me nuts so I found a metal "Punisher" skull and got out my Dremel and inlayed it over her birthmark. No doubt I can tell she's mine now.

What others should know: The Beeman RX-2 is a very nice rifle. I also considered the Weihrauch HW90 and think I might still get one just for the open sights. I very much like the trigger pull on these German made rifles. They are fun to shoot! Note that Beeman changed the stock to ambidextrous on the new models so this is actually the second RX-2 as I sent the first one back in exchange for a stock with the raised cheek piece that PA just happened to have laying around???

Things I liked: Powerful, well made

Things I would have changed: Reduce power to allow scopes to be use with it

What others should know: I put a Bushnell Trophy scope and two Hawk HK5173 scopes on rifle, non went beyond 15 shots before breaking. I love the rifle but am reluctantly returning it for refund. It is too powerful for any scope I have been able to locate.

  • mustafa from USA asked:

    Why has the stock of the RX-2 changed? I preferred the laminated stock. How can I get it with the laminated stock?

    • PARRISH from USA:

      And the price stay the same, really!!!!!!

  • Robert from USA asked:

    What scopes will handle the RX-2 recoil?

    • Louis from USA:

      You need to look for an Etched Reticle vs a wire reticle. Contact the manufacturer if you are unsure. Not all scopes are created equal and many of the "bundle" scopes are junk. The previously mentioned manufacturers all make springer rated scopes, that is not all they make though....

    • Stanley from USA:

      Most scopes now days are rated for breakbarrels , try UTG, Hawk ,Aeon ,Centerpoint , Leapers are just a few.

  • Rudedawg from USA asked:

    Can the gas piston unit in the Beeman RX-2 be rebuilt as needed or does it have to be replaced like lower priced nitro piston units?

    • Chevota from USA:

      Google the Weihrauch HW90, which is what this gun is. You can see pix online of the spring/piston assy, it's O-rings, the fill port, and even the little hand pump they sell just for it. or just get a cheaper pump elsewhere. The area of the spring is substantially greater than most, so it needs substantially less pressure, 300-350psi. I believe the quality, but especially the pressure is why this gun can hold said air just fine. I had one of these for over ten years with zero leakage. Other gas spring guns I have, which all use the non rebuildable struts, seem to usually leak some within a year. I have a couple maybe five yrs old still holding, but they are the exception. Seems quality is getting better tho. I only sold my HW90 because it was in 25cal, which was too slow for me. Otherwise a top quality gun that makes most guns, firearms included, look like trailer trash.

    • Stacey from USA:

      It can be rebuilt and aired up through schrader valve with the right equipment and know-how
