Beeman QB78? It's going to happen!

Here's the official statement about a name change coming for QB78 family air rifles.

S/R Industries, the owner of the Marksman/Beeman brands and subsidiary of SAG (Shanghai Airgun Company), the owner of Industry Brand, announce that their range of CO2-powered air rifles will henceforth be sold under the Beeman brand and no longer as Industry Brand products.

Specifically, this Beeman QB78 air rifle branding change affects the following CO2-powered air rifles: QB78, QB78 Deluxe, QB79, AR2078A and AR2079A.

The reasons for this change are two-fold:

1. The renewed popularity of these air rifles.

2. To develop a more consistent brand story.

S/R Industries plans a rolling change from Industry Brand to Beeman QB78 air rifle branding, the timing will be as inventory of Industry Brand products has been depleted.

The initial inventory of Beeman-branded products will be in brown boxes with the product having the Beeman logo. Subsequent products will come in retail packaging.

Archer Airguns knows of no change to the air rifles themselves, the only change is branding. My guess is that it could take some months for this branding change to be implemented.

Some Long Lost Friends Back in Stock!

After a long break, I'm pleased - and relieved - to be able to say that we have a number of sought-after products back in stock at Archer Airguns.

Among the highlights are the re-appearance of QB57 complete barrel assemblies.

These are available in both .177 caliber and .22 cal. Any QB57 can be used with a barrel of "the other" caliber from its original condition and this makes it ideal for those of us who like to have an air rifle in two different calibers. You can see them here:

Of course, a great benefit to the QB57 is that the sights and/or scope are mounted on the barrel assembly. This means that the barrel can be removed and replaced on the gun as many times as you like and it still holds zero. This is about the only air rifle I know that has this great benefit. As the QB57 has a "takedown" configuration, that's a particularly valuable benefit.

Also back again after years - literally - are the RAP4 On/Offs with Gauge. This product can be attached to a CO2 tank, or the Ninja HPA Regulated Tank we sell for the QB79, and allows the tank to be removed from the air rifle without the need for depressurization.

More useful RAP4 products for the QB79 are the adapters for using one 12 Gram CO2 Powerlet with these guns...

And also the adapter that allows you to use 2 x 12 Gram Powerlets on the QB79.

Lots of you have been asking for these products, so I'm very pleased to be able to tell you that they're back.
