Just got a new QB78 from my girlfriend for Christmas.
Very nice rifle, quite a bit nicer than I'm used to for the price.

First impressions:
I couldn't understand why people say it needs work. Mine was very clean, with only the butt pad slightly off center, but I can fix that.
Realized right away that you can't open the piercing cap if there's pressure in it. That's when I decided to read the manual. Also noticed that in the manual that it's quite easy to adjust the trigger. Maybe too easy though because I played with it a bit and right now it's at the point that a stiff breeze would st it off.

First 50 shots:
Lined up a few paper targets about 10 yards from a bench and I was able to put 5 shots in a small ragged hole every time. Much better than my 2240 which even with a 24" barrel is pretty rough on the accuracy.
I definitely need a set of better scope mounts. My 4x20 sits off to the left and I'm sure it's not very reliable that way.

All in all, I am very impressed with this rifle. I think I'll be buying a few mods for it in the next few months. I definitely need to bottle feed it and maybe do some valve work. I'll be bugging you guys for advice on that for sure...

Cheers!

Ryan

Thanks for the great review,
I'm gonna be getting one of these as soon as I move.

How many shots were you averaging per CO2 cart?

Well I went through 50 rounds, with no POI change that I could see. I had to dump the rest of the gas by dry firing just to get the end cap off.

50 per cart!! I thought it was more like 60 per fill, ie 30 shots a cart as there are two carts in a fill. Am I wrong?

Right, and that's kinda what I said. I filled it (2 carts) and got 50 solid shots out of it before I had to pack it up, I'm sure it'll do more.

I was shooting one about amonth ago, and the end cap won't unscrew until it's almost empty. And it was still hitting the mark with the lower power level. I'm interested in one also soon...

Mike... :wink:
