By popular request, this is the Archer Airguns "Custom" version of the AR2079A air rifle. Improvements include an extended buttstock to provide a longer length of pull, elimination of the iron sights and the addition of a muzzle weight to the barrel.
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 from 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 AR2079A Custom 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 without the use of the Archer Airguns QB79 Tank Adapter (see QB79 Parts page).
