I have been looking for a QB57 Deluxe kit and also a B3 - BAM / Xiscio / SMK. It seems no one carries these in Canada anymore, however these Rifles are still being shown on the Manufacturers web sites.

Am I missing a store in Canada that may carry these ? Was there a problem with importing them ? Is it hard to import one from China ?

Any help is much appreciated on where to purchase one or how to attain these air rifles.

Cheers,

Greg

I have owned three B3s. All were purchased from Amazon (US) and shipped to my USA mailing address. I drive there, pick them up, and declare them at the Canadian side. No problems. Make sure you have a pal because the box makes wild velocity claims, and Canada Customs goes by the velocity numbers on the box.
I notice the price at Amazon has shot up to $89.95USD for a .177 B3-2. There are much better air rifles available for 89.95! When I bought mine, they were $60USD shipped. Still pricey for what you get! Refurbished Ruger Blackhawk Elites are widely available in the USA for around $60USD and are 10X the gun the B3 is. The B3 I kept (gave the others to family members) has a honed compression chamber, custom aluminum spring guide, aftermarket spring, tophat, recrowned barrel, and soft bedding. It still looks completely stock on the outside. Scoped, it shoots 1/4" at 20 meters.
B3s are really a pre-assembled unfinished airgun kit. They don't usually shoot well out of the box, but respond well to tuning. D&L have rebuild kits available for them. $15CDN gets you a mainspring, 1 piston seal and 2 breach seals, sear spring, underlever clasp, brass cleaning rod, brushes, and a bottle of Chinese mystery oil!
They are a lot of fun if you like to tinker as I do. If you don't like to tinker, don't buy a B3.
I have yet to find one for sale in Canada.
