This is a follow-up to the "riddle-me-this" thread wherein I discuss my new Beeman Model 1073 (RS2) which came with a downward bend in the .177 barrel. To say it shot low is an understatement. As some of you may have read, I contacted S/R Industries, and talked with Dani, the customer service person. I chose the option of having her send me a new barrel, even though she said it would not fit " as each barrel is custom-fitted to each breech". Old reckless me took a shot anyway. The Rifle was sent out last Thursday or Friday, and arrived today (this is what Brown did for me).
I hope the attached cam-photo tells the story. These are the very first shots from the new barrel.The three touching shots in the lower left quadrant were all the same aim point. The other four are me dickin around, trying to use mil-dot aiming No adjustment of the scope. I just mounted the rifle barrel, checked the fit and starting shooting.Oops! I forgot to clean it!! Not to shabby, eh? :emoticon:

Yeah, ya gotta love it when a plan comes through.



Looks good, what's the diameter of the circle and distance from shooter? I'm guessing about 1-1/4" circle. What's the target material?
Sorry, just curiosity. LOL



Happy Shooting!!!!

Hi Jay,
I'm really happy with my turn of good fortune with the new barrel. I can't imagine what this rifle would be like with a tune. I'll surely have to take you and Mike up on that one day (sooner rather than later, I hope). I was really surprised that the POIs were so close between the two barrels. Good old Beeman HPs.

Thanks for the sentiment and understanding. The wife and I do well together, supporting one another through some interesting times. On the DL, I had a double hip replacement in the past six months. Thank goodness for health insurance! Damned deductibles! LOL!!! Fascinating how those bills keep turning up!
Thanks for the prayers too. They seem to work better on the wife than they do on me. Life ain't fair!

thanks chortdraw,
I might replace the breech seal on day. I saw some "trimming" coming off with the .22 barrel in place. I just pulled it away,inspected the seal and kept on shooting.

s'up ezman,
 The target is a pressure-sensitive label, a sticker. I still have a few from working in a label shop in the '80s. As it sits in the picture, it's 1"x1&3/8" (good guess, though). The distance is a bit over 24ft, indoors. The rifle was resting on a folded towel draped over the backrest of a chair. I was real comfy. Smiley I'm hoping to set up a longer range outside, shooting from my back yard into my garages. I'll wait for a cooling spell first. It's been too hot and humid here, and it brings out the skeeters.

that's OK itsnotom,
You have better rifles than the model 1073 anyway. Why take a step back? For me it's a step forward from what I own now (B4-2, XS 3-1). But thanks for being glad for me, anyway. That means something to me.

i wasnt downgrading you and im sorry if you took it that way. im just speaking from experience with your gun. i never got itfrom wally but PA. i sent back the gun 3 different times and  everytime i sent it back, they sent a new one and it was always screwed up. i got tired of that BS and told them to stick the gun somewhere and give me my money back. again, im sorry if you took it the wrong way

itsnotom,
Man we are missing one another here. I take no offense to what you say about the RS2 (I call it model 1073, per the box it came in), and I didn't think you were downgrading me at all. I'm sorry my writing style caused you to think I took offense. You really do have better guns. At least that B40 of yours is a better rifle than the RS2, imho. If I could afford one I'd have one for sure.  Well, I guess that means I assumed you had  more than one rifle, and that each was better than the 1073. I'm shopping the bargain basement for now, and not too often at that. So I'm good with the 1073  for now. Oh, and I was not being sarcastic when I said I thought you were glad for me. I meant it straight up.
But, if you don't mind, I did have a little smile when you wrote that you would not have one. I know your experience with it, and can't blame you. I could go on, but other people reading this might think it's a love-fest or something equally yucky. We are cool, man. No sweat. No strain ( in a manly-man sort of way).Cool

Excellent job and welcome to the addicting world of airgunning.



And great that both barrels are so close without tweaking the scope. You got yourself a winner!!!!



Happy Shooting!!!!

no prob and i do have more than one. i sold all 8 last xmas and about a month later i started buying again. this hobby is sure addictive. now i have the b40,rws 34p,crosman nightstalker,benji AS392 and just picked up a b26-2 for 100 shipped. so the numbers are climbing again. lol. and i would have no prob with owning an rs2 if it was a good shooter but the past experience left a very bad taste in my mouth about them. keep your eye on the yellow classifides and something better will come your way.

Addictive? You said it. I can't believe I spend as much time as I do reading up on air rifles, and making out a wish (I-had-the-money) list. Good things come to those who wait. I did buy a Crosman C02 pistol from Crosman's online custom shop. It's a model 2300 in .22 caliber with a 14" barrel. It shoots OK, but I missed a hard-hitting springer rifle. BTW, I'm starting a Not-For-Profit organisation with the mission to collect fine air rifles from people who wish to fight their addiction to those air rifles (by giving them to me). I'm doing what I can to help those so afflicted. It's a sacrifice I gladly make. If I can help just one person... Smiley
