Fantastic overview of the AR2078A John! Thorough review as always, with every angle covered in awesome detail. The accuracy of the rifle is fantastic, true to form for a 10-meter gun. The power consistency is a particularly pleasant surprise though, given my experience with the QB78 variants which seem to drop off pretty steeply after a few shots in quick succession. Glad to see that's not the case here.

Been tuning into your videos for some time now and they've been incredibly helpful in making informed decisions on air gun purchases. This review is no different, I was on the fence about picking up this Beeman rifle, but after you and Lucy put one through its paces, it seems like a no-brainer buy, especially given the price point.

Thanks so much for the in-depth reviews, truly the best of their kind on YT!

Great review, John. I enjoy all of your review. I have an AR2078B with the side lever and an AR2078 bolt action with the thumb hole stock. The de-gasing tool works fine on both guns. You may not be turning it far enough.

I scoped both guns right out of the box. I removed the front sights and slide the barrel weights up flush with the muzzle. I used short off set 11mm to picatinny adapters (Pyramyd part# PY-A-7424) with the off-set forward over the breach and use full sized scopes. A Center Point 3-9x40 mildot AO 12.5" long on the 2078 T.H. and a Hunt Down 2.5-10x42 mildot lum 13" long on the 2078B

LOP on the 2078 T.H. is 14" and has an adjustable recoil pad. The LOP on the 2078B is 13" and I have a Limb Saver slip over rubber recoil pad on it that adds 1" to LOP. The recoil pad on the A and B is ventilated rubber.

Trigger pull on both guns was 12 OZ out of the box and still is.

Great guns, love'em.
