General Comments
It turns out that there are at least 2 different Beeman "SS1000" models out there, the one I had was the "lower end" model that frequently sells for under $100.

The woodwork was poor, showing a number of sanding sworls while the metal finish, stamping, and bluing was not up to other cheap rifles (Quest, Shadow 1000). The trigger was NOT the "two-stage adjustable" type that's on the better model, it was a simple direct-sear - and it stunk.

Velocity was sub-par, below 800fps with 7.9 gr Crosman Premiers. Accuracy was equally mediocre - my best group was over an inch at a measly 10 yards.

Overall, probably the biggest disappointment I've had in an air rifle.
