The Chief is modeled after the classical styling of bolt-action hunting rifles, with its handsome hardwood stock embossed with a yellow-hued Beeman logo. With added attention where it counts, the Chief has an adjustable 2-stage trigger that’s ready for your fine tuning. For sighting, shooters can choose between the included fiber-optic sights, or mount their optics to the 11mm rail.
With the Chief, you don’t need to be a bodybuilder to fill the cylinder, as a standard hand pump can easily reach the 2000 psi max with not much effort at all! Load up a round and send it flying at 1000 fps (in .177). According to Beeman, this PCP can shoot up to 50 rounds in .177 or 35 in .22.
Curious about getting into PCP airguns, without breaking the bank? Pick up the Chief for a gun that will please with its performance and its price!

The wood stock is well finished. Nice piece of beechwood they chose. I like the classic curves and lines of the design.
The bluing is superb for a sub-$200 gun!
The mechanics of the bolt and the receiver are a bit more crude than precisely machined.
I would file a couple sharp edges, and I wish the bolt was a bit more precision-fit, but hey...
I relate this to the loose feel and sloppiness of, say, an AK-47. They will probably just always work without any fussiness just because it's not some overly picky primadonna.
The trigger is decent. Not German engineered, but its short and reasonably crisp.
This gun is accurate! I took the iron sights off and put a UTG 4x32 True Hunter on. I fire JSB Monsters, and can consistently hit the very middle of quarter-sized crab apples in my tree atleast 100 feet away!
This gun is pretty loud! Definitely a 4. I plan to order a muzzle brake from TKO airguns (they are awesome and effective!)
i adjusted the chiefs' trigger down to 2# and will probably take it down to 1.5# later this week.
i don't hunt. i shoot iron @ 100, 125 and 150 yds.
pumped up to 1000 psi i get 30 good shots. the chief is .177 shooting crosman premier hollow points. the maximus is .22 shooting crosman premier hollow points also. i get 30 good shots with it also. both rifles take 50 pumps to bring them up from 1000 to 2000 psi.
my original intention was to buy both and keep the one i liked the best. i'm keeping both :)
1. Polished the trigger and sear.
2. Adjusted trigger and Lubed everything inside the trigger housing..
3. Cut 1/8" off the hammer spring for a better shot curve.
Now She's a Great Shooter !!
One hole groups at 20 yds, Clover leaf groups at 35 yds. and 1 1/2 at 50 yds.
