That Beeman sure is pretty, IMO. Have fun!

Interestingly, I was looking at one of those at a website this morning. Very nice!

What I like is it have so much parts you can add to upgrade, customizes, also the rifle can be use for competition (10 meter).

Was hard to find, no store in Canada.

I will end up not using the "tune kit" because the "repeater upgrade kit" included one with it.

This is now under the Beeman brand and includes the repeater breech? Wow, nice score.

Thanks :wink:

Yeah I read about the "origin" of that rifle.

airgundepot wrote:
Many of us grew up with an airgun as our introduction to the shooting sports. Chances are, if you grew up during 1955 and 1972 then the QB air rifles will look very familiar to you. During that time period Crosman produced the Model 160 and 165 series of CO2 rifles. These simple and lightweight single shot CO2 guns became very popular and some were even purchased by the US Air Force as training rifles. However, like all good things, production of the Crosman 160 and 165 models came to an end and left the market yearning for something to fill its place.
Image
According to an 2006 article written by Tom Gaylord, this is where the original concept of an overseas produced, improved version of the 160 came into play. A man named Henry Harn commissioned a tuned Crosman 160 from Tim McMurray ( of Mac 1 Airguns fame) and then sent the resulting rifle to China for mass production. However due to higher than expected pricing, sales where not as good as anticipated. It was not until the Chinese released their own version of the QB at a much lower price that sales really took off. Since then the Chinese versions of the QB have been imported under many different brands as the licensing has changed hands, while the rifles still remain essentially the same. For quite some time they were sold under the Tech Force name as well as the Industry Brand name (yes quite possibly the worst brand name ever!) , but as of late they have been brought in under the Beeman name (not to be confused with the made in Germany Beeman brand.)

Yeah, I have the 2079 with the Archer repeater breech. My go-to gopher gun.

Nice! How did you get the archer kit?

From what I see on is web store, no shipping to Canada.
