General Comments
Picked up the Beeman SS1000 (.22 cal) a few days ago and overall I'm very happy with this purchase. The rifle overall is a quality piece and there are only a couple things I would change to make it a perfect gun (will get to that later). Accuracy using the 3-9 x 32 scope is very impressive for a gun that's just $145 and easy to obtain! At 20 yards when sighted this gun has no trouble making very tight groups with many shots hitting the same hole or touching it. At first you may feel accuracy is poor since the rifle does have a little kick to it. With a firm grip and very little practice it is no longer a problem and shot placement can be dead on. The power of this rifle is perfect for target shooting or hunting. The rifle is very well balanced from front to back and is not too light or heavy. In my opinion 95% of adult shooters will agree. Cocking the rifle is also easy. I can do it all day long without getting tired. So far I have tested the RWS Super Hollow Point Pellet and the Beeman Silver Arrow's. The RWS pellets shot the best so far for close range (under 30 yards) and the Beeman pellets for long range. I will try some RWS Pointed pellets to see if those work better than the Beeman's. My only complaint is that the trigger and guard are made of plastic and the trigger has a little creep/slack to it but is not a big deal once you get use to it. It would be nice if they offered an option for a nickle finished barrel. Overall this gun is a solid performer and at it's price you will be even happier after you shoot this rifle because it is definitely an awesome bargain.

For the cash this rifle is hard to beat. Since it is a spring air gun it will take some time getting use to but once you get the hang of it you will rarely miss a target! I got mine at http://www.airgunsbbguns.com/

<br/>Gamo makes a few nice ones for the money as well but the thing is they don't offer a .22 cal :( If cal isnt important the gamo guns are hard to beat as well.

I am interested in purchasing a Beeman SS1000 in 22 cal. for $145 as noted in your review. Could you please let me know where I could purchase one for that price. I live here in Hawaii and do not have too many outlets that handles air pellet guns and are very pricey when you can find them.
<br/>
<br/>I like your comments regarding the Beeman SS1000. There were a few very derogatory comments. Hey, if it is a decent rifle at a decent price, I&#039;ll take it. I think that the derogatory comments came from connoseiurs who probably am used to $300-$$1,000 guns, but cannot accept less quality in a $100 gun.
<br/>
<br/>Thank you for any info you can steer me onto to purchase a Beeman for $145 as you noted. Thanks.
<br/>
<br/>Allen
