This is a really fun gun to have if you like tuning air rifles. This gun came to me shooting at 500 fps with 14.3 grain pellets. After a first round of lube and tune, the avg shot fps raised to 550. Then after adding a few washers to the end of the spring, polishing the inside of the piston, and adjusting the seal, it shot at 689fps avg. Then finally I bored out the hole at the end of the piston to about .2 in. (it was originally at about .177 I’m guessing the manufacturer just changed the barrel out for the .22 cal version of the gun). This increased mean fps to 811 fps. It maxed out at 900! Really amazing. I have a new spring coming in the mail now that’s been said to be stronger than stock.

This rifle is a real winner and proves that it is not about how much money you pay. I find it comical to hear all the reasons on why I outshoot others with their $500 plus springers. It does not pack the power that some of the others have, but you know this going into it. The scope while very cheap and a real chore to mount, will put penny size groupings at 50 yards. It is an attractive rifle as well.

The only good thing I can say about this rifle is that I have only wasted a small amount of money on it. It is another example of really poor Chinese manufacturing. I gave mine away. Don’t waste your time and money on this rifle.

I did not find this review site until after I ordered the B3-4 Rifle. There was no review on it, but reading some of the other import reviews I was not looking foward to it’s arrival (only that it would hurry up and get here so I could send it back). I have read about over oiled, no oil & rust, brocken or nicked wood, nothing good really.

Well today was the big day & it has finally arrived. I found NONE of these problems and was quite impressed with its look coming out of the box. The metal was a nice black finish with no scrateches or rust. It had the right amount of oil for shipping & the monte carlo wood stock was perfect with a very nice finish. There were no cracks, bore holes, knots, or cracks.

Ok so it looks nice but what if you bought it to shoot & not hang on a wall? I am having a squirrel problem, so loaded up some of the Crossman field hunting .22 pellets, tossed a can in the yard at about 40 yards & it hit a little high but 3 out of 3 tries were hits. It sez there is a break in period but without out & right out of the box it was almost dead on. The sights are ajustable so I zero it in later.

Because it is an underlever it is not something you want for you kid or first time shooter, but over all it is a nice pellet rifle. If you are not big into the airgun scene (like I am not) and just looking for somthing that can shoot in a strait line, this is the rifle to have. I can not see paying $100’s of dollars to get rid of some pest unless it is going to have gun powder. For a good price to shoot compressed air look to the B3 series for under $50.
