Testing Services


Description Technical Specs

Don’t buy a QB78-type air rifle without a leak test! Archer Airguns includes Silver Service testing FREE with every QB78-type air rifle - a $9.99 value! This unique offer means that you save money and are assured that the gun you receive will not leak “out of the box”.

Of course, Gold Service testing remains available if you want a full, documented shooting test of your new air rifle before it’s shipped to you.

This is a variant of the QB78 designed for use with a paintball tank to supply the CO2.

But wait, there's more! The QB79 is a very versatile air rifle that can be used with Powerlets, 88 gram AirSource tanks and even 12 gram Powerlets through the use of adapters. The basic rifle is sold without a CO2 source, but can be used with a paintball tank up to 2-inches diameter - but see note below - using Crosman Air Source 88g cartridges with an adapter, or even 12 Gram Powerlets - again with an adapter (all adapters are available on this site).

You can see the variety of CO2 sources that the QB79 can use in the photograph above. There's more detail and photos in this post in the Archer Airguns blog on the QB79.

Uses a
heavier barrel than the QB78 and has a shorter fore end to the stock, but otherwise very similar.

The average number of “good” shots with different types of tank are:

88g AirSource tank (adapter required) about 220 (single use)
3.5-ounce paintball tank about 240 (re-fillable)
9-ounce paintball tank about 630 (re-fillable)

PLEASE READ. The QB79 works with paintball tanks having a maximum outside diameter of 2.000 inches. Recent 9-oz and 3.5-oz tanks are normally 2-inches in nominal diameter, but can actually be larger in actual diameter - particularly if they are of alloy construction. If the tank is larger than 2.000 inches in outside diameter, it may not fit the gun unless the Archer Airguns QB79 Tank Adapter is used (see QB79 Parts page for details).

QB79 Great Value; Great gun! July 16, 2009
Reviewer: William Price from Bealeton, VA United States  
A torn rotator cuff made it impossible to shoot my 1000 FPS break-barrel .177 pellet rifle, so I sought something CO2 powered and found the Archer site.

The QB79 appeared to be the best value for me, so I took a chance on the 'unknown.' I was not disappointed. The gun is great, Archer's service is great also. I've shot well over 1000 pellets each week since I received the gun and learned a lot from Archer's video tutorials and blogs, and from the Chinese airgun forum.

Buying the Industry Brand guns and buying from Archer is a good, safe bet.

I recommend the Gold Service, the "Edge" brand pellets, the Silent Pellet Trap, the Oversize Bolt handle, the 2x o-ring kit (all of which i've purchased) and that wonderful upgrade stock for the QB79 which is on my wish-list.

Also, be SURE to add PellGun Oil to your order.

Browse, compare, learn, shoot. Repeat as necessary.
