    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    This one is genuinely surprising as I ordered it expecting it to be a bit crap but it's actually surprisingly well made and accurate as long as you keep the range below 20 yards so the pellets don't go beyond their convergence point.

    The Beeman RS2 trigger isn't bad either and the Enfield-esque flip sights are great. I think it's definitely one of those air rifles that you need to shoot before you die alongside the Relum Tornado and the BSA Meteor.

    Can't believe anyone else bought one of these. I bought it as a future collectible as it's such a bad idea, it believed they'd be sold in very small numbers.

    Can't say I'm quite as impressed as you, but they are a bit of fun.

    Good review though.

    Interesting novelty but not for me.

    Nice to see some one getting some use out of it.

    They're definitely a bit of an oddity that's for sure Dave, I think what did it for me was that I ordered it in thinking it would be a cheaply made gimmicky thing that'd have no practical uses whatsoever. It's still a gimmicky "toy" there's no denying that but the build quality in my opinion is genuinely pretty darn good (externally anyways) and with the right pellets it was surprisingly accurate up to its convergence point.. just don't go beyond it. :confused::D

    It's a good point about them being collectors items as well.. maybe in the near future we could have our Beeman's sitting alongside all of the limited edition Daystates on display :D.

    It's a good bit of fun but there's quite a few things required of the shooter before you can own one. For one you need a cowboy hat, a piece of straw hanging out of your mouth and you'll need to change your name to Jeepymick or Cletus.
