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. QB78 air rifles are still arriving from the US distributor with Industry Brand-branding and this will change to Beeman-branded product on stock rotation.

Donít 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 ďout of the boxĒ.

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

Archer Airguns now includes a high-quality replacement tube cap O ring if you select our Gold Service option. This O ring will be installed on the tube cap instead of the factory O ring. This is a big practical advantage in a Gold Service QB78-type air rifle purchased from Archer Airguns! Our O rings are US-manufactured of quality urethane. They are far superior to the Beeman factory O rings which can sometimes fail with use.

If you plan to bulk fill this air rifle, please use our new Archer Airguns Universal Bulk Fill End Cap as this works with any position of main tube vent hole, including the 10mm location found on many recent deliveries.

The QB78 is extremely similar to the classic Crosman 160 that's not been manufactured since the 1960's. This air rifle is manufactured entirely of wood and metal - just like guns should be (well, OK, there are actually two plastic parts, but that's all). It's a single shot CO2-powered gun with a bolt action, available in .177 and .22 calibers.

This is a very versatile air rifle. It can be shot using one 12 Gram Powerlet or two. It can be "bulk filled" with CO2 using an external tank. It can be shot using any scope sight - no need for an "airgun-rated" scope because it has almost no recoil. And it's easy to hold and shoot well. There's a wide range of accessories available here. And unlike almost any other air rifle, there's a wide range of spare parts kits freely available on this web site.

Whether you'll be plinking at cans 40 yards away, shooting targets indoors at 10 yards, or hunting small game or birds - the QB78 can do it all well. Try one! You'll be pleased you did!

Very Happy! September 21, 2014
Reviewer: Wendell Adams from Canaan, NH United States  
After doing a lot of research I had to go with the Archer QB78. The rifle arrived in 2 days, and the fit and finish is outstanding! I was a little nervous shooting it the first time, as I had no experience with a CO2 rifle. Offhand at about 20 paces from my target, open sights, I was Very impressed! It is a tackdriver. And now its wearing a scope.
Thank you Mr. Archer, and also for great videos!

QB-78 Huge bang for Buck January 20, 2014
Reviewer: Jim K. from Ridgefield, WA United States  
This is my first QB rifles and I must say I'm thoroughly pleased and impressed. I'm still putting it through it's paces but so far so good. I know the AR 2078A and QB-79 (tanker) air guns well as I own 6 of them and appreciate how user friendly they are meaning to shoot and work on. I have modded one 2078A and one 79 tanker and love the results!! Thank you Steven Archer for continuing to make these excellent air rifles available to the air gun community. In my opinion the QB-78 and QB-79 are currently among the best values in the market today.
