Bought one of these new in 2011 and it works very well. The stock is finished smooth and it has good blueing. This gun is made of wood and steel and the one I have has no machanical safety. It takes more effort to cock than a B2 since it has a shorter barrel. It has good power and accuracy out of the box. It is rated at 500 feet per second muzzle velocity which is good for an indoor shooting range.

Even though I had to tighten the screws once in a while, the accuracy was far superior than could be thought of for a rifle of this type. Once it was zeroed this B-2 (.177), I saw the rifle take down a bird at 50 yards easily and repeatedly with factory sights (with windage and elevation) and with force. It finally and suddenly broke down after years of use and this time I got me a .22. Even though in Puerto Rico (PR) they seem not to be easy to come by anymore. My first rifle was a pump Crossman 760, but pump is a hazzle.

Fit and finish is poor. Trigger safety jams (on) with use due to improper stock inlet/fit. Gun was over oiled yet the bore had rust spots in it! Have spent more time fixing this rifle then shooting it. This rifle was purchased in 2004 so maybe they have improved it since then. Maybe.

Youth rifle? Yeah, right….

It has 2 trigger springs that gives it by far the stiffest trigger I’ve ever tried. Cocking effort is high for the mediocre 500-600fps velocity, and “fit and finish” are as poor as you’ll find on any cheap Chinese rifle. The only “youth” part about it is that it is a little lighter than your tpical Chinese springer.

It has little to recommend it, although it might be passable for a teenager that couldn’t afford anything else. However, as a training gun for a kid (especially a pre-teen kid), keep looking.
