Hunting small rodents, plinking and popping paper targets are perfect for .177 cal.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Beeman RX-2 Elite .25
September 22, 2016
This is a beautiful rifle, made with the finest materials. The laminated stock is gorgeous in the sunlight and the photos do not do it justice. I decided on the .25 for extra varmint stopping power, and have been very pleased with the accuracy. The scope is very well matched with this rifle, and after sighting in, contributed substantially to the accuracy. It likes all types of high quality pellets. Please note that this rifle has a noticeable recoil, which moves the stock into your shoulder, rather than raising the barrel up. It is also quite heavy, and I would recommend a sandbag and stool if shooting at >25 yards for longer periods of time. Also, the break barrack mechanism is very stiff. I've found the best way is to give it a strong snap at the beginning and end of the cycle. The stock is designed for right eye dominant shooters, but I'm left eye dominant and had no problem. All in all worth the 1k investment since this is the best breakbarrel rifle that money can buy.
Pros:The Aston Martin of rifles- gorgeous, powerful and superbly engineered.
Cons:Great effort is required to complete the break barrel cycle. Unless you are a body builder don't plan on shooting this rifle for longer than half an hour at a time.
