“SMK TH78D aka QB78D with the 'Thumb Hole Stock'”

Written on: 04/04/2012 by ukbikerbuyer (4 reviews written)

I wanted to get a cheap .22 CO2 rifle, and after lots of research, I decided on the SMK TH78D. SMK do other variants based on the '78' range, but the TH78D is the 'top of the range' The basic '78' line up starts with the XS78 (average UK new price £80) the QB78D, same as XS78 but with gold/anodised bolt and trigger (average UK new price £130) and the top-dog, TH78D which has a thumb-hole stock, adjustable rear stock-plate and gold/anodised bolt and trigger (average UK new price £180) I… Read Full Review

You shouldn't really need to service any air rifle after only 500 pellets (apart from a quick clean) , if you can already feel air leaks from the factory fitted seals after only 250 pellets I would concider them faulty. It beats me why you're so pleased with it.

I'm please because I didn't spend £300 - £400 and at the price of these SMK's they are fine from factory, if you want a 'plinker'. However, to get decent power and have a decent target/accurate rifle you have to do a little work. The steel and woodwork is top notch, just cheap seals and rough machining burs let them down. If you want a perfect rifle, pay £400... (i've enjoyed stripping the gun down, I know how it all works now, dead easy to work on, parts cheap, I've polished the internals, fitted new seals and fitted a hi-flo breach/bolt probe and now pushes out 11ftlbs, all the extra parts cost £25

That's fair enough if you want to tinker with something to improve it and add after market parts but I'm still not impressed that it leaks from new.

I'm not impressed with ...

'Takes another 20 dry-shots to clear the CO2 before you can remove the powerlets'.

As the owner of four CO2 guns, I could never accept that sort of waste.

you can still 'shoot' pellets with the remaining CO2 but accuracy is compromised with the reducing power

Understand, biker and if I owned that gun I'd use the leftover CO2 to rattle a few cans - aka 'plinking'!

Very encouraging to note how good these very affordable Chinese guns are getting, and the way they're progressing could soon see them equally as desireable as anything else out there but beating them handsomely on price.

And thanks for replying too :-).

When it comes right down to it Bertie most things are made in China now or at least have have Chinese parts in them....
I usually shoot with a silenced .22LR using sub sonic rounds but I also use a .177 break barrel for squirreling which also achives 800fps. It cost less than £80. Old school gun....iron sights.....no wasted CO2....no messing about with duff seals.
