1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I have a R1 Beeman's I am thinking about putting up for sale.

    But I am going to ask some where around $800 for it ........ it also has a scope on it and its a 177cal.

    I was going to give it to my grand son when he gets a little bigger but his mother telling me no.

    I really don't think Rick was attempting to hijack the thread.

    I would guess he is just pointing out what a good deal this air gun is by telling all he was going to sell one at twice the price.

    Anyway, back to the top for this one and good luck with the sale.

    Sorry guys ..... I just wanted to show you what a good deal Joe had on his.

    This is also why I never posted a picture of mine.

    Good luck Joe!

    This is a very good price for Dr. Beeman's favorite model.

    Mine has a triger better than my 1100 dollar varmint rifle. And shoots just as good.

    The hyper velocity air guns are nowhere near this one for accuracy. So just shoot 'em in the eye. (you get more squirrel meat that way)

    I am going to hell for all the animals I have killed with an r7.

    Mine has been rebuilt 3 times in the last 30 years and averages 500 Starlings a year. Not the fastest air gun on the market but accuracy is what counts and the R7 is match grade accurate. 30 years service says something about the quality as well. If you shoot the gun a lot and leave it cocked as I do will need to rebuild it every 10 years or so.
    The Starlings around my house don't stand on the feeder for more then a few seconds as they have seen what happens to their homies. This is why my r7 is always cocked.

    Great deal here for somebody. Do not buy into the hype about speed as it's all bullshit unless you plan on shooting 60 yards or more. The rifles out there that go as fast as 1200 FPS and more are LOUD!

    As far as I am concerned if it is as loud as a 22 rifle it defeats the whole purpose in the first place.

    The R7 will kill any Crow ,Starling , ground squirrel out to 40 yards because it is so accurate you can put the pellet in the eye. You really can eye shoot a bird with this rifle. They are that accurate.

    I have had my Weihrauch HW 35 which was the predecessor of the R1 since 1976. I also have a HW77, and am looking at an R1 a local has.

    Anyone who has not shot a high powered German airgun is missing out on a powerful alternative to a rimfire rifle. And it's one you can shoot at home any time you want.

    they are all 40-50 yard guns and for small game like squirrels and vermin they are just as effective asa .22LR if not more so. I have never shot mine outside of my yard, and yet I have killed many hundreds of Mocking Birds. Gophers are next on the list but my wife really likes our squirrels and I'm not supposed to shoot them.

    If you are a true gun nut you need to have at least one of these. You'll shoot it more than any other gun you own!
