This gun is a diamond in the rough. Out of the box I was shooting 935 fps with Crosman 7.9 gr Pointed Premiers. Action is pretty smooth and the accuracy is good. If you are a home tuner, this gun was made for you! After market services and parts are everywhere. A fully tuned B26 is a dream to shoot. A stock gun is a great value for the money. This gun was made for a scope for sure! The factory iron sights are lacking, but if you put a peep on it the accuracy potential of the gun is fully realized. Easy to carry, easy to shoot and easy on your wallet, the B26 may be the best bargain out of China!

First, to explain the 1 thumb down.

A) For the fact that they don’t come properly lubed from the factory.

B) The stock screws haved to be snugged up on a regular basis unlees you locktite them.

C) The rear sight on mine barely would adjust far enough to allow it to site in @ 10 yds.

Basically everything else I really like. It has an adjustable trigger. Mine came very smooth as is.

The front sight is easily removable should you decide to add a muzzle brake or shroud.

It cocks rather smoothly with a smart tap at the muzzle. No crunching and the safety engages well.

The wood finish is quite nice and a pleasant color with light grains showing.

The bluing isn’t quite like my Webley but quite good coming from China.

So far it has made consistant groups with a couple different brands of pellets. I punches steel soup cans with ease and a decent firing cycle.

I am delighted with my XS-B26-2. Truly, this is a ultra high quality, powerful air rifle that’s fun to shoot for long periods of time, feels great to the hands with satin-finish thumbhole stock, and looks great with sleek, well-balanced heft and feel.

Right out of the box, the gun is ready to shoot. There is no thick coat of oil, just a perfectly-blued gem of the machinest’s art. Talk about a smooth-cocking air rifle! It amazes me every time I shoot it. This is one accurate piece, capable of putting all your shots through the same hole. Don’t be tempted to over-lubricate this gun–it doesn’t seem to need it. Just shoot the heck out of it.

I got the .177 cal. model, and it hits very hard, chewing up all my steel backstops. I had to reinforce them with extra slabs of steel. If I was a hunter, those critters would have no chance with this gun around.

The cocking and shooting cycle is so smooth and pleasant, it is hard to believe it has so much power, until you see actual sparks fly as the lead goes incandescent. I have had good accuracy with every pellet I have tried, with the exception of the very cheap Chinese Industry Brand domed pellets which fall right through the barrel. This rifle does very well with Crosman Premier Hollow Points, which will satisfy the needs of both hunters and field target shooters.

The B-26 and B-26-2(with thumbhole stock) are fairly new guns, but I am sure they will become very popular in the near future. This is a fine, rugged, powerful, and accurate air rifle which any shooter can appreciate. I only wish I had purchased it earlier and skipped over all the lesser airguns I have owned. This one’s my all-time favorite.
