I bought a .22 under lever rifle from Wes, and I also bought a bulk amount of .177 and .22 pellets from him as well for $100. He also threw in a free pellet sampler because of some minor scratches on the gun from manufacturing, however now that I have it on my hands, the scratches aren't noticeable, so everything's good.

This was expected to come in on Thursday, but it came today, very early.

Take a look.

Is that a B3 variant? If so, mind your fingers in the breach!

Very nice. I inquired about one of those. Let us know how it shoots. Spent my allotted money for this month and maybe next months as well. :lol: Have to get a high pressure hand pump and some refillable paintball bottles likely next. CHEERS!!

Yes that's the model. But it's a variant of the B3. After you cock it. Put the buttstock in your armpit, and keep a hand on the cocking lever, while loading a pellet. It insures if the sear fails, holding on the cocking lever will prevent the piston from pinching your thumb.

Same with break barrels, Its so the barrel doesn't spring up and bend.

Makes perfect sense, and is not much effort just to keep a hold on it just in case. Will do.

I sold my co2 powered rifle for money towards a spring powered one because I hate having to buy co2, or anything else.

Here's how she shoots:

Keep in mind I am still very much working on my shot, and this was free hand with the standard open sights.

It still turned out well. It seems as long as I line up my shot right, it can get in the bullseye multiple times (it did at least twice if not three times)and at worst make just over a one inch group.

Obviously I’m not counting the shots that went way off as those were clearly my fault.

So yeah the gun's accurate it seems.

I was using artillery hold and placing my thumb on the front screws as advised.

Should tighten up as the spring settles down. 500 or so shots.

Probably, but then again, I'm not taking this as the definitive answer, but rather just a general idea of accuracy because my shot as I said still needs work, I'm still rather new to this being how I only shot a little bit of air guns before I got a PAL (not caring about accuracy then or working on my shot at all) and then went to powder firearms once I got a PAL, until very recently when I returned to these air guns as well.

It's good to know the gun's a pretty straight shooter though. :D

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

That's gnarly! What do you after wards? To you retrieve your lost bit of thumb and keep it in a jar or do you finish cocking the gun and shoot a bit of thumb out the barrel :twisted:
