Beeman R10
« on: July 27, 2011, 06:52:39 PM »
I picked up my Beeman R10 .177 at a gun show in Pharr, Tx, a couple years ago, brought it back home to the midwest, and it would not shoot the pellet out of the barrel. I sent it in to Beeman, and they sent it back in operable condition,  not cosmetically pretty, but in fine shape otherwise. ( they did not send a list of particulars as to what they had repaired or replaced, but there was no cost except my cost to ship to them) I guess my question is: Where in the rank of quality  does the R10 fall. Is it worth the effort to spend the time to restore the outside of this rifle to pristine condition, or just shoot it as is?

The R10 is what the R9 wishes it was IMO.  actually the R9 is a cheaper to build R10.  wondering which address yours has stamped on the reciever cap.  Perhaps you have heard the R10 is the "son of the R1".

I know R10 are the pre-curser to the R9.  That being said there value can vary.  I have seen some go for pretty high.  I think the $350-400 range is where I have mostly seen them at so maybe if you clean the stock up it will be worth some dough.  Especially since everyone who has one keeps it.

Alas! No white spacers, no checkering on the pistol grip  and it measures 16 inches from the breech to the muzzle---a carbine, perhaps? 
After I get through with medical problems here   I will try and post a pic of both the RWS 75 and the R10. The 75 is my pride and joy    just wish I were able to utilize all the built in accuracy    that inability comes from being too long on the planet I guess ;-))) 84 is not a great age to try and become proficient with any projectile hurling object- including my 3/4 inch bore cannon.
