New find
« on: May 26, 2020, 06:53:22 PM »
Just picked this Beeman  RS2 up for new $75. Scope included. Ya a cheap Wally World rifle. But have read some good things about them. I cleaned it checked it out. The .22 barrel is installed. Shot it about 30 times. So far it seem to be pretty darn accurate and it was suprising this little rifle packs a pretty good punch. 

Never would have considered getting one but for the price I couldn't pass.

I have a Chinese under-lever I paid $20 for. No grooving for any kind of scope, but the sights are fully adjustable. For a .177, the 25 yard groups are well within reason.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Thank you septic for posting all of these springer posts. I enjoy seeing them and I can hear my springer calling to me from the closet. I'm going to pull it out and set it up for some 25 yard groups and see how good a Wally World (literally, Benjamin Prowler) basic stock gun really is.

Tuned, soft bedded loctite on the .22 barrel set screw. and added a red dot. 

You would never think this was a cheep Chinese Beeman.  It s is so smooth and quieter now. A absolute joy to shoot. I took it out and sighted in the dot. Had 11 empty pellet tins, these my targets set at 30 yards. I was able to shoot them over and over. Almost  becoming monotonous. 

For $75 and a few hour of time a $75 rifle that shoots like one several hundred dollars more.
