First off, My money, $79.99, this is an excellent gun if you’re looking for accuracy, power, and decent looks!

Your money, there are better guns of course.

This gun is heavy. The trigger is not all that bad, you get used to it. The power is surprisingly good. My Alpha chrony clocks it in the 900 fps range consistently. And the finish on mine was excellent.

You do have to clean, lube and adjust.

Can’t think of a more competent gun at this price.

out of the box this gun was impressive. it was heavy and niceley finished. it has a problem with the screws mounting the barrel to the stock loosining. a littlr loktite took care of that. at ten meters from a soft rest the groups are pretty tight. i havent put it on a chrono but at 15 meters you can shoot a beer can and not even know you hit it because it goes through so quickly. it is a cheaper springer alternative to RWS with good power. if you want pure accuracy it is ok, but too heavy to use without a rest for more than a few shots. all of these people who knock it probably should tighten the screws with loktite and learn how to shoot, or by a cheap pneumatic pump. i wasnt expecting heirloom quality with a cheap chinese air rifle, but its a darn good gun for the money. the only drawback i found designwise is the difficulty loading pellets.

What a Piece of Sh-Trash.!!! Bought the TF-99 .22 from Compasseco for $169.95+ shipping and found that the barrel has been mounted at about 1/4″ downward angle from the receiver. Didn’t discover this until I tried to mount a scope on it over a month after receiving the gun (Outside their 30 day return policy. Didn’t call them because shortly after dealing with them, I found out that my credit card # was being used on some French website without my knowledge. Hmmm. France. Compasseco… Coincidence? Possibly, but I doubt it.) Anyway, there was not enough adjustment in my scope to take care of this barrel droop (couldn’t hit a sheet of paper at 10 yards) so I used shims. Barrel doesn’t appear to be bent, but on closer inspection, the barrel trunnion appears to have pulled downward when they welded it to the receiver tube (welds always shrink and pull like a muscle when they aren�t done correctly). I think I have that part cured by tweaking the receiver in my 20 ton press, so I can get rid of the scope shims. It wouldn�t group 5 shots within 2 inches @ 10 yards even after the so called 200 shot break in period (my 20+ year old, box stock Crosman 1322 pump pistol shoots about �� at this range). If re-crowning the barrel doesn’t help, I’ll put on a new one. It steadily lost velocity with every pellet I tried, chronying anywhere from 410 FPS to 585 FPS even after the break in with my ProChrono Digital, which works fine for my other guns. RWS Hobby’s run around 550. Even after using chamber oil, it will barely break 700 FPS for 2 shots. Started making all kinds of grinding/scraping noise when I cocked it., so I thought maybe the spring broke and I took it apart. Metal chips and plastic everywhere! Spring was OK. The plastic(!!) spring guide is broken. Something else to fix by making a new steel one. The leather seal looks like it was cut out by a 3rd grader with a dull cookie cutter, so I have seals and Teflon on order. Also got a new spring in case the original won�t get me up to the advertised 900 FPS after all the rework. There is also enough wood in the stock to heat my house for 3 days and still have enough left over for a stock (maybe not that bad, but I am not a small man). The trigger’s not so bad, a little mushy, but workable. The good news is that after I’m done with it, I’ll have a nice rifle. Bad news is it will cost me enough in time and extra expense that I could have just bought an RWS 52…. Live and learn. There’s not much that doesn’t need fixing, so if you want this much of a project, build a gun from scratch.

for me is an excellent gun, responsible for the death of 200+ pigeons at 35+ meters in the last year, but, is not user friendly. Plastic pieces are crap, trigger guard is crap. i had to replace plastic parts like spring guide for a steel spring guide, the original seal for an oring mounted on teflon, the trigger guard for inox steel, the original spring for a chinese alternative spring, all for less than 20 dollars. No Problems after that. The only thing you need is a friend

this gun has been a great learning tool for me, is very accurate and powerful, but if you want a gun that requires no to very low mantention try other

for the monwy i spent i got 3 solid months of knocking squirells out of trees. then i lost power and discovered the spring had broken in 2 places… call compsecco and they had all the replacement parts in the mail the next day.

so when i get it back up and running ill probably keep shooting the heck out of this thing until it breaks again. i dont mind working on things. and for what i spent on this gun doing a quick rebuild once a year isnt that bad considering how powerful the gun is

We Bought 2 of these guns at the same time and I would say that would give us a fair start for a review on the QB36-2

I will start off by saying don�t buy this gun one of the guns came to us with a crack in the stock the other with a knot 3�x 1� that fell out that�s worse then poor workmanship that�s blatant disregard for the consumer. Ok let�s get by the poor stocks, we started shooting the guns smoking and dieseling we knew we would have its Chinese what do you expect I tell you I have no respect for the Chinese and there manufacturing one of the guns jammed when cocked. So we started shooting the QB36-2 with the cracked stock we could not hit a can at 10 yards come to find out the barrel is bent to the right these guns are junk there going back. I will never buy Chinese airguns ever again.
