Here's the official statement about a name change coming for QB78 family air rifles.

S/R Industries, the owner of the Marksman/Beeman brands and subsidiary of SAG (Shanghai Airgun Company), the owner of Industry Brand, announce that their range of CO2-powered air rifles will henceforth be sold under the Beeman brand and no longer as Industry Brand products.

Specifically, this Beeman QB78 air rifle branding change affects the following CO2-powered air rifles: QB78, QB78 Deluxe, QB79, AR2078A and AR2079A.

The reasons for this change are two-fold:

1. The renewed popularity of these air rifles.

2. To develop a more consistent brand story.

S/R Industries plans a rolling change from Industry Brand to Beeman QB78 air rifle branding, the timing will be as inventory of Industry Brand products has been depleted.

The initial inventory of Beeman-branded products will be in brown boxes with the product having the Beeman logo. Subsequent products will come in retail packaging.

Archer Airguns knows of no change to the air rifles themselves, the only change is branding. My guess is that it could take some months for this branding change to be implemented.

.


After a long break, I'm pleased - and relieved - to be able to say that we have a number of sought-after products back in stock at Archer Airguns.

Among the highlights are the re-appearance of QB57 complete barrel assemblies.



These are available in both .177 caliber and .22 cal. Any QB57 can be used with a barrel of "the other" caliber from its original condition and this makes it ideal for those of us who like to have an air rifle in two different calibers. You can see them here:
http://www.archerairguns.com/QB57-Barrel-Assembly-p/qb57barstock22.htm

http://www.archerairguns.com/QB57-Barrel-Assembly-p/qb57barstock177.htm

Of course, a great benefit to the QB57 is that the sights and/or scope are mounted on the barrel assembly. This means that the barrel can be removed and replaced on the gun as many times as you like and it still holds zero. This is about the only air rifle I know that has this great benefit. As the QB57 has a "takedown" configuration, that's a particularly valuable benefit.

Also back again after years - literally - are the RAP4 On/Offs with Gauge. This product can be attached to a CO2 tank, or the Ninja HPA Regulated Tank we sell for the QB79, and allows the tank to be removed from the air rifle without the need for depressurization.

More useful RAP4 products for the QB79 are the adapters for using one 12 Gram CO2 Powerlet with these guns...



And also the adapter that allows you to use 2 x 12 Gram Powerlets on the QB79.



Lots of you have been asking for these products, so I'm very pleased to be able to tell you that they're back.


New at Archer Airguns is a repair kit for fiber optic front sights.

If you have broken fiber optic front sights or are worried about them breaking, this kit could be for you!

This repair kit provides parts and instructions for repairing broken fiber optic front sight elements on many air rifles. It has been tested to work with most Umarex air rifles such as the Octane, with most Ruger air rifles including the Air Hawk, with Beeman RS-2 air rifles and many Crosman air rifles such as the Optimus and 760 models. It also fits the QB78 Deluxe.

The photo below shows the typical appearance of front sights that can be repaired with this kit.



Nine fiber optic rods are included as - given the exposed nature of these front sights - it’s likely that their fiber optic elements will be broken repeatedly!

The high quality fiber optic rods included in this kit are much brighter than the factory originals. They also make it possible for you to change the color of a fiber optic front sight if you don’t like the factory color. Red, orange and green rods all are included in this kit.

Note that each rod will be suitable for making two repairs on short front sights, such as those fitted to the Ruger Air Hawk and Beeman RS2 air rifles.



The only tools required are a controllable heat source, such as a lighter, and small end cutters.

With the Archer Airguns Repair Kit for Fiber Optic Front Sights, you will be able to change quickly and easily from this...



to this, with bright red, green or orange fiber optic elements.





Thanks to all those who have been waiting patiently!

QB78 and QB78 Deluxe air rifles are now back in stock at http://www.archerairguns.com/qb78-airgun-family-air-rifles-s/27.htm

The QB78 Repeater is also available again at http://www.archerairguns.com/QB78-repeater-s/80.htm

We have all these models available in both .177 and .22 calibers.

I apologize to everyone who has been waiting. The reason for the delay is this...

We sold out of all supplies of these models in the rush before Christmas. This should not have been a problem as we had placed orders for more supplies in the Fall. However a short delay in production by the factory was compounded by a HUGE delay caused by the port strike (or whatever's happening there) at Los Angeles. The container containing our guns was stuck in the port for nearly 2 months, so the QB78s only arrived here yesterday.

We also have plentiful supplies of the ever-popular QF-2 Cleaning and Parts Kits for B3 air rifles.
http://www.archerairguns.com/QF-2-Cleaning-and-Parts-Kit-p/ibqf-2.htm

Welcome back to the QB78!


Check back frequently to Hard Air Magazine for all the latest pre-show news!

HAM will also be reporting on airgun developments at the 2015 SHOT Show, which runs from January 20 to 23 in Las Vegas.



Finally, Bore-Whips cleaning pull throughs are now available in .22 caliber.

Price for the .22 Caliber Bore-Whips is the same as for the .177 caliber version and they work just as well, but they're green instead of orange so that we won't get them confused!



Also like the .177 version, the .22 Caliber Bore Whips can be left in the barrel as a safety indicator, showing that your air rifle is "safe" and cannot be fired.

Bore-Whips make an ideal cleaning solution for airguns. They clean the bore well, without the risk of damage that can occur to shallow, fragile airgun rifling if too aggressive cleaning with a metal brush is undertaken.


Wow!!! Apologies for the long time since the last post. The Christmas rush was incredible and it lasted into January...

We also have some new products added to the Archer Airguns online store, one of which is a genuine Benjamin air rifle sling.



This Benjamin sling fits directly to Benjamin break barrel air rifles featuring a forward loop mount and rear swivel base.

Constructed of 1-inch wide black synthetic webbing with a wide padded section bearing the Benjamin logo. This sling makes carrying an air rifle in the field much easier and safer.

The Benjamin air rifle sling can be used with Marauder air rifles with the addition of a set of 1-inch sling swivels. (Actually, you only need one sling swivel as one is supplied with this sling).

There's more new stuff coming shortly. Thanks for your patience!


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!

You can see the Marauder Filler Plug here http://www.archerairguns.com/Gauge-Port-Filler-Tool-for-Benjamin-Marauder-p/mrodfillertool.htm

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!
