A tack driver this isn't. My old Sheridan is more accurate is more accurate than the one I got. And it's almost 61 years old. I use it to clean the ground squirrels out of my back yard.

Co2 is nice.

Not a tack driver. The hard wood stock is nice.

Received the Beeman air rifle within a few days of the promised date by Airgun Depot. The Beeman is not the quality I thought it would be. I own a Benjamin .22 pump air rifle, and a .177 Crossman break barrel rifle. Both of these guns will seriously outshoot the Beeman CO2 air rifle.

The Beeman is crudely built when comparing to a Crossman or a Benjamin air rifle. The action is stiff and not as smooth as I thought it would be on a CO2 air rifle. The Beeman is definitely not a tack driver. It is alright as a starter air rifle for younger shooters. I bought the Beeman thinking it would be a tack driver once I outfitted it with the proper air rifle scope and scope mount. I was seriously disappointed.

Got this in .22 a couple of months ago, and have been trying it out. Overall, this CO2 rifle is a great value - you truly get a lot of bang for your buck. If four and a half stars were a option then that's what I'd rate it.

I'm old school, so this long, solid, and hefty rifle just feels right to me. Gorgeous wooden stock for the price. Very usable sights. Smooth bolt action once broken in (which didn't take long at all). Plenty of power and solidly accurate. So far the factory settings on the sights have been good enough for me. Even so, might plop a reflex sight on it just for grins.

As a previous reviewer said, emptying the gas so you can finally unscrew the cap is a bit of a hassle. But I can live with it. Also, the gun arrived with rust in a couple of spots and dirty, grimy oil in some areas. Nothing a little TLC couldn't take care of, though.

Cocking system, smooth shooting. scope friendly, nice looking, sweat wood stock, easy to use, inexpensive

No bleed valve. So it is very difficult to remove the air cap if you are low on Co2 . You need to keep shooting pellets until the rifle is almost out of air to remove the air cap. Let just say the last 20 shoots is a waste of pellets , unless you shot dry to empty it... which is never recommended

From my experience, don`t buy this one.

for 100 bucks, good looking, weight is good, trigger is good, functions good.

After 1000 or more shots the 25 yd. groups went from about 6" to 1 1/2". Not impressive. This is with a scope. But this doesn`t bother me as much as the fact that after leaving it in the garage for 2 days all the co2 leaked out. This happened twice and then I put it back in the house and forgot it, disgusted. I tried a half dozen different pellets. I tried the felt "cleaning" pellets. It seemed to like Crossman premier hp like my other guns usually do, but not always. I applied Crossman oil and silicone grease where it is supposed to go. It is never cold in my garage, I am out there everyday and it is insulated well. I would much rather write a favorable review on this nice little gun, but I am very disappointed with it.

I have had this gun for two years now and I am very pleased by the overall performance. I have never had a time where it has let me down. It runs very smooth and noise level is reasonable. I love the capacity of co2 because I can get out at least 100 rounds before I need to reload the co2. I have brought it out to 70-80 yards before and I got a very good grouping of about six inches, although bullet drop was significant.

High co2 capacity, Long range performance. Adjustable sights. Good quality for buck.

I have not noticed any

I was interested in a QB78-Deluxe for some time and couldn't pass up a great AGD deal during 2016's "Black Friday" week. It's been several years now and I have no regrets. Initial impressions were very positive, particularly the all wood & metal construction plus the heft of its solid steel barrel (I measure OD~0.59"). Front and rear fiber-optic sights appear to be all metal (die cast?) with rear adjustments for elevation and windage. Limited mostly to my 35 ft basement "range", I enjoy the challenge of free stand shooting so having decent, adjustable iron sights is a big plus. The QB78 is surprisingly powerful for a CO2 rifle. It easily sends Crosman .117 wad-cutters thru both sides of a tin can at 35 ft and being able to load two CO2 cartridges gives a high shot count per fill. For me, fills can stretch over a number of sporadic sessions so I'm extremely pleased to find NO evidence of CO2 leaks, even after the QB78 sits dormant for a month or two. Overall, I find the QB78 a really good bang for the buck and I'm very pleased with it.

Overall, a fun rifle and a great bang for the buck.

When new, the safety had to be muscled ON & OFF and it took a fairly long time to break in. It's a lever that rotates ~180? forward (fire) and back, into the trigger guard for "safe". In the safe position the lever can over-rotate, making it difficult to get a finger on it to flip the other way. Maybe a defect or maybe just a clumsy safety design, but hardly a deal-breaker.

By ChanceApril 17, 2019

As mentioned in several other reviews, there are a lot of sharp edges on this gun, right out of he box. The more you use it, the better it gets. I use it for shooting starlings out of my pine trees, and it’s surprisingly accurate out to 30-40 yards. After that, the groupings fall to pieces. Very little recoil. So little, that just about any scope will hold 0. For $100, this gun is worth every penny. I highly recommend it.

Chicks dig it. 9+ foot pounds. Accurate. Adjustable trigger. Easy to work on. Very low maintenance.

Stock came with several dings in it. FPS is almost too low.

By Jason h.December 19, 2018

This was my second air rifle but I have gotten about 3 years ago and it is still one of my favorites this one is a good rifle to start with or just have one in your collection it is very quiet and accurate the reason why I got this one is I needed something quiet for pesting day or night #CarolOfTheGuns

There is a lot of Pros with this rifle good accuracy and quiet good for beginners just getting into The Airgun industry

Do Crosman CO2 cartridges work in this air rifle?

asked Bubba from USA

Can it ship to Canada?

asked Alexey from Canada

Can you attach any extra gear too the weapon?

asked Eric from USA

The QB78 has a 11mm scope rail. You can attach a set of sling swivels to mount a sling. Archer airguns has aftermarket add-ons.

Mark from USA

Does anyone know where to get the qb78 repeater kit?

asked Christian from USA

It was carried by Archer Airguns. With the Covid-19 pandemic we do not know when it would be available again.

Mark from USA

Can you use 1 full co2 cartridge & 1 empty cartridge if you only wanted to shoot 30 or so rounds at one session?

asked Tim from USA

I haven't, but I did read a review at another site where the user claimed to do exactly that when not a lot of shooting was planned.

Bubba from USA

Does anyone know what the actual feet-per-second rating is for this gun? Or has anyone measured for themselves?

asked David from USA

Gerald from USA got 765 fps, so 10.2 fpe x 450,436.6798 / 765^2 = 7.85 grains, which is astounding, but not too surprising with the modified valve and extended bolt probe, but I bet Gerald is getting around 40 good hard hitting shots from the two 12 gram CO2 powerlets.

Francisco from

2x12gCO2 / 44g/moleCo2 / 45 shots = 0.012 mol CO2 per shot, which means that dependent on the temperature, the CO2 will have so much energy to be converted to gun and kinetic energy at the muzzle, so if you use a light pellet, you can get much higher velocity than what is stated; however, if you use a heavy pellet then you might be disappointed at the velocity, but you will experience much greater kinetic energy because the heavier pellet will last longer in the barrel to accelerate and gain momentum from the CO2 gas and thus a higher kinetic energy at the muzzle and terminal ballistic performance. Answer to your question: 651 fps., pellet weight? Unknown, but you can reverse engineer the formula to find out. The best kinetic energy my friends who own this gun has been 10.2 fpe at 25 degrees celcius. sqrt(10.2fpe x 450,436.6798 / 21gr PileDriver) = 467.743 fps; And sqrt((10.2fpe x 450,436.6798 / 4gr alloy) = 1,071.7 fps (theoretically). Case in point; with CO2, you will never achieve greater than 949 fps. The analogy is that you can never push a car faster than you can run, while still attached to the bumper. In essence, what I do know is that this is the gun to get at this price, preferably one in each caliber.

Francisco from

I have one with an extended bolt probe and modified valve and it averages 765fps. on co2.

Gerald from USA

arround 600fps

lance hansen

I have one in .22cal and it shoots at 625fps w/ Crosman 14.3gr pellets across my chroni. I did take the felt out of the valve and drilled the prob a little larger. Stock in .22cal it was shooting at about 500fps.


Stock around 580, easily improved to much higher velocity 30 FPE achievable.


Is this available in .22 cal.?

asked MICHAEL from USA

Yes, they will be available in .22, we have not received the first shipment of .22 models yet but as soon as we do we will have them up on the site.
