At it’s price point, This is of course a project gun that was simple to work on and rewarding when done. Not an out of the box shooter without a bit of work. Polished honed cleaned lubed and if you like doing this as a hobby it turns out to be quite a good shooter.Consistant and acurate.

I was very disapointed with the speciman I received:

1. As received, it could not be opened without a hammer to release the thumb latch.

2. When opened, small metal shavings fell out of the barrel / reciever area.

3. With most of the shavings removed, the “hit ‘er with a hammer” approach managed to flatten out mowst of the rouoghness in the thumb latch, so it could be opened consistently.

4. The bore is quite rough near the breech: Two or three shots will cause leading. It brushes out OK, but comes right back. I’m going to try lappping, but haven’t yet.

5. The rear sight is loose on the barrel, and cannot be tightened enough to keep it from rocking back and forth with handling. This is due to a slot for the rear sight elevation screw that is wide enough for some real wobble. The only other restraint on its movement is a single small philips head attachment screw, around which it pivots in handling. Haven’t got that anchored yet, but expect so silver slder it in place. Obviously, I have no idea yet what it’s really capable of for accuracy. That said, I can keep my shots in about a quarter across an 18 foot room, despite the loose lockup and rough bore. It may be alll right once I get the bugs out of it, but it’s really a sorry mess when delivered.

I would reccommend this as a first gun. Is accurate for a cheap chinese gun, and powerfull enough for rabbits out to 30 which I have shot many of. However the trigger is extremely tight and seems to get worse the more you use it. So i replaced the trigger spring with that of a ball point pen, and it works much better!

I agree with the other coment, this Gun does feel very fragile and cheaply made. But it is a very good first time gun, it was my first gun, it is not too powerfull to put you off shooting and not too weak to to make you wish that you stuck to shooting a BB gun.

Actually, I’d have to qualify this by saying that the gun is “slightly” not recommended.

The B2 is known for poor workmanship and inconsistent shooting, and the 2 examples I own are no exceptions. They are not terribly reliable, and the safety (at least on my examples) only slightly discourages you from pulling the trigger, it doesn’t actually prevent you from doing so!

However, it is a very simple air rifle, and a good one to learn on if you want to take one apart. And if you get an example where the breach-receiver interface isn’t too screwed up, you might be able to make a decent shooter out of it. Or not.

In the end, however, the lack of robust construction (including trigger sears that wear quickly!) makes other rifles better choices. Overall, the gun doesn’t sink to the level of, say, the Marksman 1010 pistol – but one can do better.
