btw is the QB6 considered a "youth" gun? and how much louder is the tuned gun versus the stock one?

Its a little louder, dont know if it is dieseling or simply is louder.

Others who have heard the rifle said it sound much more than before.

Youth gun as if it is meant for kids?

Before the tune I would say it was in the 400 or so for a .22, dont know now as I need to get a chrony. Out of the box it would be fine for a teenager. If you mean youth rifle as if it is small, yes it is a compact carbine. Took me a while to get use to, but in real life thats how they were short and compact rifles.

The lamest thing about this youth rifle its the scope mount. Although it does have a hole in the rail for the ring bolt stopper, its way too short.

To be exact the scope rails are 2-1/8 inch. I could not even add the NCstar 4x30mm tactical scope that requires at least 3 inches. 

Here are other measurements:

The rifle with the closed stock - 24-1/2 inches
rifle with open stock - 34 inches
barrel is 13-1/2 inches


Another bad thing is how far the open sight are, from rear to front sight: 22 inches.

If it was easy it wouldn't be hunting it would be shopping.

an offset mount is a one piece mount in which the top clamp is displaced  to overhang over one side  of the tube clamp. they are generally used when the eye relief is too short for the rifle you are trying to scope. The reason it was brought up is because the base clamp is not as long as otehr one piece clamps. imagine a one piece mount, now cut it horizontally between the top clamp and the bottom clamp. slide the top forward (or backwards0 about 1 inch... voila, offset mount.

FYI, I chronoed a .177 QB6 this evening. After some wide variations, it settled to a rough average of 630-650 fps.  I'll get it cleaned up and see how it goes.
  This is one cool little gun.

anyone know how the .22 in stock form chronographs? I'm thinking of using it to partner with my .177 Browning 800_mag pistol. Hope @=S+S%^$# doesn't run out before I can get one.

I got a B6 (.177) in last friday, overall not too bad.
The trigger defiantly needs work,, not as heavy
of trigger as I expected but has a very long pull.

That rear sight is way too close for me to get a
good sight picture am working on modifying it
to a peep/ghost ring.

I did not experience any detonation, but it took
a lot of shots to get it to stop smoking and
can still smell some oils after firing it on occasions.

Not what I would consider a "youth gun" due
to the short cocking handle, it is pretty stiff.

Looking forward to playing around with it.

Have shot some decent groups at 10 yards,
but will post some targets once the rear sight
is improved. I have no plans of using an optical
or dot sight on this one.

The finish was great on this one. There was a little "rust dust"
around the front sight but some oil and a Q-tip cleaned it up
nicely.

The stock extension locks up real solid, but I noticed myself putting
quite a bit of side pressure when cocking it. I changed the method
in order to not put too much pressure on the pivot point.

The shot cycle is just a short thump, no spring noise not nearly as
rough as my Crosman Sierra Pro when it was new if that helps
explain it any better.

If I can get the trigger more predictable, think it will be a fun
rifle to shoot.

Will post some pics, and targets in this thread once I get the rear sight
modified.

Thanks for all the photos of the tear down. Will be taking mine apart
but it wont be very soon.
