for £90 this Shanghi Airgun QB78 .177 or .22 gun is exceptional.
good number of shots per 2xco2's
generous bolt size for ease of cocking
great close range knockdown power
very easy to thrash because of cost, saving my other more expensive guns from abuse.
very loud without silencer
cheek comb is too low for anyone wishing to fit a scope.
the gun is of brilliant build quality which i must admit i didn't expect given its low asking price.
pure plinking fun; given its low power rating, recoilless action and ease of handling this gun is brilliant for young shooters as a first gun. saying that many and adult can obtain equal levels of enjoyment plinking away with the xs78.
overall this rifle is in the same league as the crosman ratcatcher and is certainly the better choice given the price difference between the two.
this gun is a must in any air gunners arsenal.
