New at Archer Airguns is the latest Hammers scope - it's a compact 6 x 32AO scope and is supplied complete with airgun rings.

This new scope is ideal for use with many air rifles, particularly if you're looking for a short, light scope.

Image quality of the Hammers 6 x 32AO scope is good and the Adjustable Objective (AO) capability allows focusing down to 5 yards.

These scopes have mil-dot reticles, with red and green illumination - selectable if required for use in low light. They're supplied with flip-up lens caps and screw caps for the elevation and windage turrets.



This new Hammers 6x32AO scope is comparable in many way to a Bugbuster, but it's significantly cheaper and is supplied with airgun rings, not Weaver/Picatinny rings. This gives a bigger saving for most airgun users who don't need Weaver rings and then need to buy a separate set of airgun rings.

We have had many happy customers for the other Hammers scopes we sell and have no doubt that many more will love this new compact 6 x 32AO scope!

The photograph below shows this scope mounted on a QB78 Deluxe air rifle. And, yes, there is clearance between the scope and the rear sight...

One of the biggest problem when resealing a Benjamin Discovery or Marauder air rifle is how to prevent the valve and gauge port O rings from being clipped during reassembly.

It's almost impossible to prevent this damage as the new O rings swell out into the gauge port hole in the tube and then are cut in that area as they push further into the tub past the hole. These cuts almost inevitably lead to leaking - which is often why the gun was taken apart in the first place, of course!

Now Archer Airguns offers a solution to this issue. It's the Filler Plugs for Benjamin Marauder and Discovery air rifles.

In the factory, Crosman uses a jig that closes the gauge port hole when the valve and Gauge Port are installed. This prevents damage to these O rings during assembly.

These new Filler Plugs provide a much simpler - and cheaper - method of achieving the same effect.

The Filler Plugs are precisely-sized, er, fillers that are used to close the gauge port hole during reassembly.



Above, the Filler Plug for Marauder Air Rifles.

The Filler Plug is simply held in place by hand when reinstalling the valve and gauge port, keeping the O rings depressed as they are pushed down past the gauge port hole. Simple but effective!

There's one Filler Plug to fit the Benjamin Marauder Air Rifle, a second version fits the Benjamin Discovery and Crosman Challenger 2009 air rifles. They're identified by an embossed "M" or "D" in the underside of the Filler Plug.



Above, the Filler Plug for Discovery.

The illustrations shown here are CAD files of the parts. The real ones are solid black and very difficult to photograph!

Many times at Archer Airguns, we're asked for our recommendation for how to clean airgun barrels.

Now we have an answer - at least for .177 caliber!

Bore-Whips are supplied in packs of three. They comprise a flexible, yet sturdy synthetic pull through with a lint-free foam tip bonded to this "rod".

Bore-Whips can be used dry, or with your choice of barrel cleaner - Break Free, Goo Gone, or whatever you prefer, for gentle yet effective bore cleaning. The foam tips can be washed and the Bore-Whips used multiple times. You can see them at http://www.archerairguns.com/Bore-Whips-177-Cal-p/bore-whips.177.htm



We're told by the manufacturer that Bore-Whips will soon be available in .22 caliber. Archer Airguns will carry these also as soon as they are available.

Also now available are more parts for Benjamin Marauder air rifles.

The improved valve featured in the new generation Marauders is now available for use in .177 and .22 caliber Marauder air rifles. It's Crosman part 1764-100 and it's suitable for use in all Benjamin Marauder Air Rifles, both first and second generation guns.

This new valve has a yellow anodized finish. So, don't confuse it with the first generation Marauder .25 caliber valve, which is also the same color!



One more Marauder air rifle parts assembly now in stock is the breech Plunger Assembly, Crosman part 1763-106. Again, this fits both first and second generation Marauder air rifles, it restrains the bolt travel under operation.

Many Marauder air rifles sent to Archer Airguns for repair have this Plunger Assembly damaged and I'm not sure why. There's no need to crank down tightly on the screw!






Just added today to Hard Air Magazine is a test review of the Remington Express air rifle.

This Chinese-made airgun looks beautiful, and much of it is well designed. But there's just one feature that's missing. It has no scope stop!

The result is vertical stringing in HAM's test targets when shot using a scope.

If you shoot with open sights, however, the Remington Express could be a great choice for a "1,000 FPS" springer.

You can read the full airgun test review at http://hardairmagazine.com/reviews/airgun-test-reviews/remington-express-air-rifle-test-review-177-cal



A comprehensive test review of the Beeman Mach 12.5 air rifle was recently published in Hard Air Magazine.



The Mach 12.5 is a Chinese-manufactured model and it certainly packs a big punch with a maximum muzzle velocity approaching 1400 fps - making it ideal as a hunting air rifle, even if you wouldn't want to shoot it all day for plinking!

You can see the full test review of the Beeman Mach 12.5 air rifle here at http://hardairmagazine.com/reviews/airgun-test-reviews/beeman-mach-12-5-air-rifle-test-review-177-cal


Archer Airguns customer Ron R. was disappointed that his QB78 Repeater was not fitted with open sights. The latest batch of .22 caliber QB78 Repeaters is fitted with 15mm diameter barrels and muzzle brakes, instead of 14mm barrels and open sights.

So he decided to install an Industry Brand Rear Field Sight on the Repeater breech and a QB78 Deluxe fiber optic front sight on the muzzle brake.

As neither of these parts is an exact "drop in" fit, Ron made a little project of this, with good results as you can see.

The Rear Field Sight required some work with a triangular needle file so that it would fit the contours of the QB78 Repeater breech.





For the front sight, Ron used the technique shown in this YouTube video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBHOay8TAiI but applied it to the front sight matching the muzzle weight, instead of a rear sight to the breech as shown.



Ron, Thank you! I'm glad that you were successful with this project :-)


The Gamo Whisper G2 air rifle is the latest airgun test review published by Hard Air Magazine (HAM).



This test reviews shows that he Gamo Whisper G2 does many things well. It's accurate, consistent, light and fairly easy to shoot for a spring/piston air rifle of this power.

HAM recorded a maximum of 1162 FPS with 5.56 grain H&N Field Target Trophy Green pellets, giving 16.68 Ft/Lbs of muzzle energy.

Accuracy was very good or excellent with 6 out of the 7 standard HAM test pellets. The Gamo Whisper G2 air rifle tested by HAM performed well with all pellets except the RWS Hobbys. This gun is not pellet picky.

The main opportunity for improvement is in the bundled scope. This does not match the quality of the air rifle itself. Do yourself a favor and replace it with a superior quality scope that will be a better match for the quality of the gun. You'll probably see a considerable improvement in practical accuracy as a result.

While knowledgeable airgunners will value the Gamo Whisper G2 air rifle for its accuracy and consistent performance, the overwhelming majority of buyers for this air rifle are not airgun experts and will buy it based on the marketing claims. Both groups will probably feel that they made a good decision!

You can read the Gamo Whisper G2 air rifle test review in Hard Air Magazine.

In the past few weeks, Archer Airguns has added a number of new products to it's increasing coverage of Benjamin Marauder parts kits. These new kits are for the Marauder air rifle, some of them are listed here for your interest...

Now we have complete Crosman factory valves for the .25 cal Marauder air rifle. These valves can also be used in the .22 and .177 cal Marauder air rifles as a way to increase the muzzle velocity of the gun- although of course, they suck up a LOT more air with every shot and your shot count will fall.



The .25 cal valve should be used with the corresponding high flow transfer port sleeve. These Marauder high flow transfer port sleeves are also now available.



Also new are Marauder air rifle screw kits. These fit the "first generation" Marauder air rifles. Yes, I know that we mentioned them before, but here's a second airing as they are proving very popular with Marauder parts buyers!

Marauder Screw Kit A includes many of the "internal" screws for the Mrod. including:
4 x Trigger Side Plate Screws, Part 1763-056
4 x Trigger Assembly Retaining Screws, Part 1763-035
1 x Hammer Setscrew, Part 1763-022
1 x Bolt Catch Retaining Screw, Part 1763-024
3 x Valve Securing Screws, Part 1763-019



Marauder Screw Kit B has a number of the most useful "external" screws for original Marauder air rifles, including:
2 x Breech Locating Screws, Part 1763-027
1 x Stock Screw (blued) Screw, Part 1763-029
2 x Barrel Band Screw, Part 1763-023
2 x Barrel Setscrews, Part 1763-021
1 x Shroud Setscrew, Part 88-089



And don't forget Archer Airguns aftermarket single shot trays for the Benjamin Marauder air rifle! These are available for all three calibers and you can see more details here.



New from Archer Airguns is an upgrade kit that converts QB78, QB79, Tech Force 78 and TF79 models to cock on opening operation.

This upgrade can be installed on new QB78, QB79, AR2078, AR2078A and AR2079 air rifles purchased from Archer Airguns. Alternatively it can be purchased in "kit only" form for you to install on your own air rifle. Full instructions are included in the kit and the photographs here will also help.



Many QB78 shooters have always wanted a "cock on opening" version of their air rifles, but previously this has been available only as a specialist conversion from dedicated airgun tuners. The big issue is that the QB78 hammer needs to be drilled for revised placement of the hammer pin - and it's INCREDIBLY hard!

Archer Airguns has made a "production" cock on opening conversion kit available for the first time ever. Installation is a simple drop in process, as can be seen from the photographs below.





In addition, the Archer Airguns cock on opening conversion kit also minimizes the problem with previous cock on opening mods in that it's very easy to load pellets. There's still 13/32-inch available for pellet loading, as the photograph below shows.



This kit also fits the Crosman 160 and is also the first time - to my knowledge - that a cock on opening kit has been made available for that classic old air rifle.



Archer Airguns has recently introduced several new parts kits for Benjamin Marauder air rifles.

Among these kits are two sets of screws for the Marauder. These are for the "version 1" or "old model" of the Mrod, not the guns with the latest synthetic stock. We find these screws handy to have around as part of our Reseal Service for Benjamin Marauder air rifles and I'm sure that the same will be true for the many people who enjoy working on their own guns.

Screw Kit A for Marauder Air Rifles
comprises screws associated with the trigger assembly, the valve securing screws and a couple of others.

There are:
4 x Trigger Plate Side Screws, Part 1763-056
4 x Trigger Assembly Retaining Screws, Part 1763-035
1 x Hammer Set Screw, Part 1763-022
1 x Bolt Catch Retaining Screw, Part 1763-024
3 x Valve Securing Setscrew, Part 1763-019

The photo below shows these parts.



Screw Kit B for Marauder air rifles, has mainly screws associated with the breech assembly, together with replacement stock and barrel band screws.

These are:
2 x Breech Locating Screws Screws, Part 1763-027
1 x Stock Screw, Part 1763-029 (blued)
2 x Barrel Band Setscrews, Part 1763-023
2 x Barrel Setscrews (fit in breech), Part 1763-021
1 x Shroud Setscrew, Part 88-089



Also now available as spare parts are a complete Marauder trigger assembly, this also fits the Crosman Chellanger 2009 PCP air rifle.



But wait, there's more! There's also the Marauder Gauge Adapter. This fits the Benjamin Discovery as well.
