At Last...
A Left Hand Breech for the QB78 Family!

I'm really excited to announce that - for the first time ever - it's now possible to have true left-handed operation with your QB78 family air rifle! Our left-handed breech and bolt kit fits all QB78 type air rifles including the QB79, AR2078 and clones such as the Tech Force TF78, TF79 and SMK XS78 models.

This new Archer Airguns left hand bolt and breech for the QB78 is custom CNC-manufactured from solid steel bar right here in Up-State New York. It's also the first QB78 breech to feature Weaver-style slots: with the increasing popularity of Weaver scope mounting, this is another benefit to the new breech.

Also included is a left-hand version of our XP Tune Kit bolt - the standard factory bolt only operates in right-handed guns. This accepts factory bolt handles, our Oversize Bolt Handle and a new, left hand version of the Archer Airguns 91/30 bolt handle. As the bolt is included, there's two versions - one in .177, the other in .22 caliber.

So, this new kit combines true left hand bolt operation, Weaver-style scope mounting with 12 slots and a 100fps increase in muzzle velocity all in the one package!

This left hand QB78 breech and bolt kit is easy to install. It's a complete "drop in" for any QB78 family air rifle and requires no fitting, filing or machining. As always with Archer Airguns parts kits, the seals and O rings you'll need to replace during the up-grade are also included.

Oh yes, there's also a right-handed version of the new Weaver-style breech available, too. This is supplied without a bolt as any factory or standard (that is, right hand) XP Tune Kit bolt will operate perfectly.

This is the CAD design file for the right-hand breech. Double-click to enlarge.

All these new products are available from stock as of today, 15 May 2011.
