With adjustable elevation and windage this is one of China’s best sports Air rifles on the market.I bought mine 13 years ago and apart from a few holes I made for the adjustment of rifle strap fasteners it’s in great condition only this morning (on iron sights) I shot the top of a plastic orange bottle up! With pointed 1.77 pellets one shot was below the neck of the tough plastic bottle top.The other blew part of the screw on top away and left an almost round hole on the exit side of the bottle top! I am impressed by the KL.B3 Rifle! It’s side lever is very well made and better than some I own also of Chinese make.If you find your trigger a bites into your trigger finger then use a metal file and grind off the edge,sand paper it for smoothness and it is a totally different species! Even better with Scopes! A well made “Tank-like” rifle nice wooden finish great cocking arm of excellent quality and even the base of the Butt is good tough plastic.An enjoyable and of lasting quality

This is my 2nd air gun this is a lot better than the first one this has 2 bear trap safeties and a trigger safety, my gamo is now back at gamo a plastic part broke at least this gun is all steel and after I polished the trigger sear and put in a lower pressure trigger spring the trigger pull can be lived with, it is not grate but the gun shoots good and considering the low cost ($35.00) it’s OK, at 10 yds it is putting 10 pellets in a 1 inch hole, after I get it broken in I’ll do a recrown and fire lap the barrel that should make it even better. I would have no problem buying one again.

For the money these things are hard to beat with the exception of the Cummions B3 which I think has a better trigger. Mine stock boltd continuously loosen so I just locktited them. The trigger is defintley the heaviest trigger I have felt in an air rifle, whcih is its main drawback. I have not messed with mine but may sometime when I have to time. Its pretty crude like alot of chinese gins, I can see voids in the cocking lever metal which is a bit disconcerting, buts its so heavily built it should hold up forever. For soemthing like $25 how can you pass something like this up!

This is really a fairly decent air rifle for the price if you get one which actually functions properly. I got one in .177 about three years ago, from southsummit.com, for around $30 and it has worked like a charm the whole time. I did disassemble it at one point and deburred all the metal and added some moly paste to the spring and all the internals and i trimmed down the excessively large trigger and refinished the butt-ugly furniture. This gun is really not half bad once you break it in and get used to it’s ackward nature. I’ve found that it likes to shoot the crappy industry brand pellets that are 2000 for $8 and actually works better with them than any others i’ve tried. It is not incredably accurate, but it does the job, and does it quite well at that. With a good shot this gun can easily take out squirrels or any other small game including birds as large as crows.

I bought my Gun thru SportsmanTarget. It was a drop Ship from Xisico importers out of Texas. The gun was poorly packed and the rear sight was broken. The gun was covered in grease/oil. It only cost 24.95 plus 10.00 shipping. I gave it a tune which took a couple of hoours. The barrel had a droop of 3/8″. When test fired it would continuously target 8″ high and 2 to three inches to the left. This was with a premium scope and 30 feet. I had poor customer service since the only contact I could make was through email. I had four different guns shipped to me from Xisico. All four were damaged. i would not buy one of these Chinese jobs again. The gun itself was nice looking for the dollars.

It is a little heavy and triger pull is very hard.

This gun out of the box takes a lot of getting use to. Nearly every thing about it can be fixed with a lot of cleaning and just a little lubing.

I put mine on my bench rest and shot 10 rounds into .25″ area. after clening it up and recrowing it I shot 10 more into a .23″ area. This was at 10 yards.

I have now shot about 3000 rounds throw it. No problems. It isn’t near as stiff now, but it still shoots the same.

I have 6 air guns and I rate this one # 2 right behind my AR2078A. All my air guns are .22’s. That is the only way to go. The .22 has the hitting power you need for hunting. With a .22 you can shoot other place beside the eye and get clean one shot kills.

KL-B3 (fast deer) first I would like to say this guns is junk I can�t believe how bad this gun is if you buy them by the case you get them for under 30.00 about 300.00 if you buy them wholesale there about 25.00 retail 35 to 45 the gun I received was shooting 6inches low so I called the dealer he said I needed to bend the barrel OK great, no thanks Ill just send it back 3 weeks later I get another one this one only cocked part of the time sent it back now I�m into shipping for about 30 bucks 30 for shipping 35 for the gun, total 65.00 I called the dealer to tell them to for get it just refund the money including shipping, I was told that would never happen so he sent another one left it in the box sold it at the flea market for 50.00 lost 15.00 Chinese guns are junk I have found that the fast deer is nothing but road kill, I called the airgunsmith www.airgunsmith.com they said to stay away from the KL-B3 (fast deer) and that there getting away from all the Chinese guns completely they all need some sort of repair straight from the factory, I bought the Benjamin Legacy 1000, from airgunsmith.com and I�ve been happy ever since a little more money but no hassle the KL-B3 (fast deer) is junk

This gun shoots hard & straight, it looks decent but it creeks and groans when cocking this is 1 of 8 airguns that own and this is the only one I�m not sure of.

It was the 25.00 price tag as well as the power of a springer that persuaded the purchase. And after disassembling cleaning in hot water and soap with some filing, buffing and the over application silicon spray the gun seems to be quieting down as far as the fps we will see after 2 or 3000 shots, the bottom line if you don�t mind the work or if this is your hobby this is a great,,, BUT for the most part I would say stay clear of this gun take your 25.00 and add 5 more of them for 150.00 I would recommend The Benjamin Legacy 1000 Air Rifle its a very nice and safe gun but if you do opt for the cheap Chinese gun WATCH YOUR FINGERS AND THUMB IT COULD CUT THEM OFF if the bear trap fails and they have been known to fail you could loose the use of your fingers

I would disagree, I did not buy it by the case I bought one for 25.00 plus shipping and found it to be a very good shooter and with over 500 shots with no problems the gun gas quieted down and settled in to a good shooting pattern at 30 yards I will be buying another one just to have 2

The KL-B3 is being sold by wholesale large volume to limit the liability to the sellers it is a badly designed side cocker not very safe ( THIS GUN WILL SMASH YOUR FINGERS) if you buy this gun have it worked over buy your gunsmith, it can be fixed but your money is better spent on a better gun, it shoots decently and looks & feels good to bad its not a safe gun to shoot.
