Description Technical Specs

QB78-type air rifles are now branded as Beeman. The product is the same, only the name and the box has changed. AR2079A air rifles are still arriving from the US distributor with Industry Brand-branding and this will change to Beeman-branded product on stock rotation.

From the beginning, Archer Airguns sold airgun parts.

With time, we have expanded our range of airgun kits for different brands and models. Now Archer Airguns has evolved to become the premier Internet source for airgun parts. Specifically we concentrate on parts for current and relatively-recent airguns. You’ll see many parts kits for new airgun brands and models introduced in future.

This means that Archer Airguns no longer sells airguns. If you’re looking for QB78-type air rifles, we recommend that you contact Pyramyd Air. Here are some useful direct links to the individual models:

Beeman QB78 Deluxe CO2 Air Rifle 0.22

Beeman QB78S CO2 Air Rifle 0.22

Beeman AR2078 CO2 Thumbhole Target Rifle 0.177

Beeman AR2078A CO2 Target Rifle 0.177

If you are looking for an Archer Airguns QB78 Repeater or QB79 Repeater, the spiritual successor to these products is the Umarex Gauntlet. This PCP air rifle can also be powered by CO2 if required and offers the benefits of the original Archer Repeater with a much increased power level.

Again, the Umarex Gauntlet can be found at Pyramyd Air:

Umarex Gauntlet PCP Air Rifle, Synthetic Stock 0.177

If you want airgun parts, however, you are at the right place! Check out our store for QB78 parts, Crosman, Benjamin parts and more…

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.

PLEASE READ. 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).

4 of 5 Great rifle for the price... June 12, 2016
Reviewer: Matt from VT United States  
I bought this rifle so I could practice biathlon style shooting without the expense of using 22LR . Archer Ar insisted that this is not a biathlon rifle, but it is exactly what I was looking for.  The AR2079A allows me to hone my shooting position for prone and standing shots . This rifle has proven to be very accurate shot after shot. The stock fits my body comfortably and has a similar weight and feel to the Russian Izhmash rifles I can use for ski racing.  I plan to eventually  convert this rifle to PCP so that I can use it in colder weather.   I would have given this rifle a 5 star rating except that I have had trouble with some big leaks in the breech seal and a barrel o ring that was damaged from the factory.  I have ordered a seal kit and hope to fix those problems.  Archer Air has been very pleasant to purchase from and very prompt with their shipping.  I am very glad that they offer a rifle like this since the "real" biathlon rifles are way out of my price range!

5 of 5 AR2079A out of the box June 5, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Swink from West Plains, Mo and Robbinsville,Nc United States  
I have bought over 30 different brands and styles of air rifles PCP/CO2/Spring/Gas Cylinder, Etc but did not like them for different reasons.

I looked at the QB family for a long time and did not order, I kept thinking that it could not be much for the money. One day I said what the heck lets give it a try and I will have to say that I am very glad  I did.

Upon receiving the package which was double boxed, wrapped and fitted properly in the rifle box itself, I opened it with several of my friend around all excited to see this new AR2079A that could not for the price be much.  As I pulled it out and removed the plastic cover everyone said something like wow, are you serious, no way etc.  I slid the peep site on and put it to my shoulder to my amazement it was perfect.

I went home and filled my CO2 9oz tank and attached it, set up a 10meter target and no kidding steeped off around 15 meters and shot free handed several two inch groups, that was right out of the box.
