This is highly desirable "target" variant of the QB79. Additional features include target stock, interchangeable click-adjustable aperture and "open" rear sights and a lighter "2 stage effect" trigger. The hooded front sight is supplied with interchangeable aperture and post elements. This rifle is sold without a CO2 source, but can be used with the Avanti tank, a paintball tank of up to 2-inches diameter, or using Crosman Air Source 88g cartridges with an adapter (available on this site).
The average number of “good” shots with different types of tank are:
2.5-ounce Daisy Avanti tank about 150 (re-fillable)
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)
The pull length of the gun can easily be increased by adding the Archer Airguns AR2078A Buttstock Extension Kit.
The AR2079A works with paintball tanks having a maximum outside diameter
of 2.000 inches. All 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 without the use of the Archer Airguns QB79 Tank Adapter (see QB79 Parts Page).
