The QB78 Repeater is now available and shipping.

Today, Archer Airguns began accepting orders for the QB78 Repeater and QB79 Repeater air rifles.

We're shipping three models and production is ramped up. These are:

- the QB78 Repeater Introductory Special in .22 caliber

- the QB79 Repeater in .22 caliber

- the QB78 Repeater Upgrade Kit in .22 caliber

More models and .177 caliber versions will become available shortly.

Also launched today was a new Archer Airguns YouTube video featuring, surprise, surprise, the QB78 Repeater! You can see it by clicking the link here. QB78 Repeater.

Youcan also see the video in the window below, but it doesn't display to the full width :-(

Already both kits and complete guns are going fast...

Any update on an HPA conversion? This is the version I'm waiting for. How about coordinating with JDS Air Man to bundle-up a bolt-on kit for the repeater models.

This might turn-out to be the most cost effective method to convert a CO2 rifle to HPA on the market in the U.S.

Stephen Archer Saturday, 20 July, 2013  

Yes, I understand and appreciate the comments. First, we had to ensure that the Repeater was fully developed and translate it into production. Now that we've done that, we'll be investigating an HPA conversion as our next project.

I've had my QB79 repeater now for 4 days and love it, the quality of materials / parts is very nice, better than I had expected, the only issue I have with it is the rubber washer that the bolt slides through is loose and has fallen out, aside from that its a beautiful little rifle. What is the best way to resolve the loose washer? Is it necessary? Also I noticed the bolt action was a bit stiff in the beginning but seems to be getting smoother the more I shoot it.

Regarding HPA conversion, someone has already done it and posted it on youtube, a gentleman by the screen name gertsafari.

Thanks for the suggestion. I watched his video.

Yes, several people have made similar HPA conversions, but they've normally been just undertaken on one individual gun. Because of the variability inherent in multiple examples of any manufactured product (including these air rifles), I'll be testing our HPA upgrade on a statistically significant number of QB79s and QB79 Repeaters to ensure that it will be a "drop in" solution with every example of these guns.

Thanks for the information on the loose bolt plug, that's something that didn't surface in our pre-production models.

The bolt plug is there to prevent debris from potentially falling into the hammer mechanism in case of a jam. The Repeater will function fine without it under most normal circumstances. A small amount of epoxy (or similar adhesive) should hold it in place.

We'll check to see if this is a widespread issue and provide instructions accordingly.

Oh yes, I should also thank you for the kind comments on the Repeater!

Like most guns, it will loosen up a little over time with use. I hope you'll continue to be happy with your QB Repeater :-)

Thanks for your prompt reply , perhaps bolt plug I got was just not quite as snug as others, also is it safe to use pelgun oil on the bolt and breech as well as the probe O-ring? I posted a short video on youtube under the s/n Mrdeuceswild. More to follow with more details and shooting. Sincerely Mike in Colorado

Yes, it is safe to use Pellgun Oil with the QB78 Repeater, although we have found moly grease to be the best lubricant for use on the surfaces of the bolt that slide against the breech.

Love your video!!!

Thanks Stephen, I posted a shooting video today showing the QB 79's accuracy, I don't have a camera man and used my iPhone so I apologize for the rookie recording. Thanks again for answering all my questions, sincerely Mike.
