Beeman Air Rifle with Scope
I just picked this up today, along with a carton of 1250 Crosman pointed pellets. So far, very impressed, but I've only put about 100 shots through it so far. Gets very heavy to hold after a few shots if you're not used to the weight of spring-piston air guns, as it weighs just shy of 7 pounds. Extremely accurate, but it takes a little patience to sight it in first. about 20-30 shots to zero it. Scope is amazing, very clear and large image of target. These are just my first impressions, I'll post another review when I finish the carton and my tin of pellets that I already had. I don't see it changing much though haha.

I received this rifle as a birthday present from my wife. Beautiful looking with its nickel barrel. The scope is garbage, and no sights if you take it off. I tried for hours to sight this rifle in with no luck. At 20 yards it was spraying pellets all over the place. The best grouping I could get was about six inches. Not impressed at all. I finally took it back to the store and got a refund. Don't waste your time or your money. I've since purchased a ruger for less money and it's twice the rifle.

Excellent Rifle and my First
I love this rifle so much, very accurate and hard hitting. I never would have thought id be leaving Canadian tire with this rifle. On the internet it doesn't look as good as it does in real at all. When I saw it up close I was in awe at the nickel plated wicked barrel. The scope is very accurate , I have yet to miss a target. Love it, its my first and im definatly satisfied

i bought this rifle and right in the store i realized how light it was. purchased a pack of 250 pellets and rushed home to shoot. i was very pleased with the look and the quality of the rifle. loved the nickel barrel. the only downside for me was the scope. was a pain to sight, and even then it scratched easy, it turned, and it was very accurate even when sighted. if you are planning on getting this rifle i suggest you get a different scope

Good Gun, Garbage Scope
I purchased this rifle and found that the scope would not hold Zero. I replaced it with a bushnell 3-9 and works great. Trigger is tight but loosens up over time

Fabulous Air Riffle
Worth the money for sure. For a woman, the weight of this gun is perfect. Very easy to handle.
I have been able to shoot the heads off match sticks and blow up peanut M&M's with this gun.

Beeman Air Gun Model 1048
I think this is a great air rifle, once the scope is sighted and tuned it will pretty much shoot as good as the shooter at up to 15 meters. Not only is this gun accurate, at it's 495 Feet Per Second rating when I shot it at a penny it pierced the penny making a half centimeter crack and it also made a huge dent. My Dad's friend sighted it for me yesterday and it worked like a million bucks after. The scope is pretty good at 3-9 40mm but in a little while I think I will buy the $50 Tasco Red-Dot scope at CT though. I would recommend this gun to all shooters.

This is a great gun. the barrel is really easy to cock, the scope gets fuzzy ONLY when you zoom it in to a target which is too close for the selected zoom! i got it a week ago and i love it. the weight is good. it isnt the same blondish color in the picture. its walnuty like the beeman 1040. Mine was great right out of the box. with out zeroing it in it was getting inch wide groupings from 30yards!!!!! i stilled zeroed it in and now hit a penny from 30 yards in one shot. over all great gun. definately look at this one before making a purchase : )

best purchase from canadian tire
i just bought this gun yesterday. the thing i like the most about this rifle is the look of it. in the picture the stock is too bright. the stock really looks the exact same as the beeman 1040. is has a nickle plated barrel that looks great too. the scope on this rifle is amazing. 3-9X 32 power allowes you to see things much closer. when i bought the firle the first thing i did was adjust the scope. when you buy the rifle the scope wont always be extremely accurate. scince it was my first rifle that i purchased with a scope, it took me a while to figure out how to make it more accurate. but i finished adjusting it and it shoots dead on accurate from up to 60 yards. and when i say dead on, i mean DEAD ON. i hit a small 3 inch tall action figure from 60 yards away. also the barrel is extremely easy to cock. much easyer than the beeman 1040. when im finished shotting with the rifle i put it back in the box in between the styrafome. all in all this is an amazing gun and i think this would be an amazing rifle to purchase. hope i helped
