Repeater Family Photo: QB78 Repeater, QB79 Repeater, Crosman 160 Repeater

Here's a group photo of four of the five current Archer Airguns Repeater prototypes. The fifth is currently in use as we develop our Upgrade Kits for these air rifles.

From left to right, we have...

1 - Crosman 160 Repeater wearing a red dot sight .22 caliber, of course.

2 - QB79 Repeater in .22 caliber. Old Leapers 3-9x40AO scope.

3 - AR2079A Repeater in .177 caliber. New Leapers 3-9x40AO scope. Benjamin single shot tray.

4 - QB78 Repeater in .177 caliber with AR2078 thumbhole stock and Stoeger 3-9 x 40AO scope.

Note that guns 3 and 4 have 40mm diameter scopes mounted with LOW rings. As the breech is higher than the barrel, the scope can be mounted with lower rings than usual. This gives improved cheek weld, compactnes and appearance yet there's still clearance for the magazine.

The 9-ounce paintball tanks do not touch the barrels of guns 2 and 3 - it's just the perspective of the photograph.

Functionality testing should be completed quite soon. All the major bugs have been ironed-out and there's just a few additional refinements to be incorporated before we "press the button" for the first production run.

Once we have "final, final" configurations, we'll do some serious performance testing and post the results here.
