Customer Review of Xisico XS25SFB Air Rifle

We recently received the following email from Archer Airguns' customer Randall. As you can see, he's very happy with his new Xisico XS25SFB air rifle! Randall's email is reproduced here with his permission.

"Hello Stephen,

I received a gorgeous Xisico XS25SFB yesterday, yet didn't get to shoot but a few pellets through it.  I couldn't wait to zero the scope and give it, and me, a bit of a workout this morning.  Well, after no more than 25 pellets later, I shot this 5-shot target from 10 yds. bench rest. 

I use JSB Exact 8.44 gr. pellets, as I've found them to be very consistent in springer rifles.  With a CO2 powered gun my expectations are rather high regarding repeatable accuracy, but with springers, I know that some take a while to tame and settle down. 

It seems that's not the case with the Xisico, since from my initial shots to set up the scope it was grouping remarkably well.  It's a fairly heavy rifle which lends itself to a steady hold, and that's always a welcome feature. 

Last night I did polish the sear which made the second stage very smooth.  The flawless, and comfortable bamboo stock, solid scope stop, and the very nicely done muzzle break help make this rifle an exceptional choice.
Once again, I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of your products, and your very accommodating service, and for that, a big thanks and a tip of the hat.  I'm going to have a lot of fun with this superb rifle. 

Warmest regards, Randall"

Randall, thanks! And that's great shooting by you!

How to Get the Best From Your Ruger Air Hawk Air Rifle

Just released today is a new Archer Airguns video. The subject is the Ruger Air Hawk air rifle, featuring five ways to maximise your enjoyment of this popular airgun.

Just click in the frame below to view:

As always, my video aims to educate and inform airgunners on how to gain maximum success with their air rifles. This video covers often-overlooked points such as keeping stock screws tight and holding the gun correctly.

An easy method for optimizing the muzzle velocity of the airgun is covered, using the Archer Airguns XMV Tune Kit for Ruger Air Hawk, together with an illustrated explanation of how to choose and use a better scope.

Pellet choice makes a big impact on airgun performance, so a guide to selecting the most suitable pellets is included, together with details of the very impressive performance of Stoeger X-Speed lead free pellets in the Air Hawk. A muzzle velocity of well over 1,100 fps was achieved by the test gun using X-Speed Pellets, in conjunction with the Archer Airguns XMV Tune Kit.

Most of the tips included in this video also apply to the Ruger Air Hawk Elite and Blackhawk air rifles.

I hope that you will enjoy this new video!

Beautiful Silent Airgun Pellet Trap Kit

Continuing our run of posts by satisfied Archer Airguns customers, today we show an Archer Airguns Classic Silent Pellet Trap Kit that was assembled and customized by Franklin from Fairfield, CA. Franklin says "I like the kit a lot".

As you can see, Franklin was very creative with assembling his airgun pellet trap kit. In addition to adding feet and a handle, he added metal plating around the front edges of the trap to prevent damage to the wood. In conjunction with the vibrant red color, it certainly makes a very attractive presentation.

The Classic Silent Pellet Trap Kit is designed for use with Letter-size targets - there's many free downloads of suitable targets to be found on the Internet with a Google search.

Thanks again Franklin, I'm sure your example will inspire others too!

AR2078B Customer First Test Target

Randall, a happy Archer Airguns customer, wrote to us recently about his new Industry Brand AR2078B air rifle that he had just received. He has kindly allowed us to reproduce his email here, together with the first target he shot.

"Hello folks,

Received my new target shooter today.

I went downstairs and zeroed the 6x Bugbuster I'd ordered. I put 5 RWS MeisterKus into this target, 10 yards, bench rest.

Wow, what a superb rifle! I couldn't be more thrilled. I am overwhelmed at the quality and accuracy of this rifle. It exceeded my rather high expectations.

Thanks for your excellent products and service."

Thanks Randall! I hope you continue to enjoy your AR2078B air rifle...

QB79 Tank Block Kit Fits Crosman 2240 Pistol

Barry from The Villages in Florida kindly sent some photographs and information on his Crosman 2240 pistol upgrade project in which he used an Archer Airguns QB79 Tank Block Kit.

Barry installed an Archer Airguns QB79 Tank Block Kit on his Crosman 2240 air pistol so as to be able to attach a 3-5-ounce CO2 paintball tank. And as you can see, it works perfectly!

Bary's words follow: "The most difficult part was getting the holes drilled properly in the tube; got lucky the first time. I guess I could have drilled larger holes to make alignment less critical, but I wanted to make sure there was less chance of leakage. I believe that with the four O rings, that should not be an issue."

"I have installed a B&A Max-Flow valve and the Archer Tank Block Kit. It fits perfectly. My gun has an .177 - 18-inch barrel. Works like a dream. Will be testing fps on my chrony."

"PS I have to give credit to John DiStefano who told me about your Tank Block. He has one, but it will not work with CO2 because it does not have a probe to release CO2 from the bottle."

John thanks from me too! The Archer Tank Block works with CO2, but is not strong enough for HPA use at higher pressures. John's block is designed and manufactured for use with HPA applications.

Barry: thank you!
