Chinese B3 Air Rifle - Manufactured in China and sold under different names by American company's. One cock under lever spring piston actuated air rifle. Has 11mm universal mounts for optics. Nice weight and feel. The rifle is all metal and has a thick coat of shellac to protect the wood stock. The rifle is worth the $20 to $30 you have paid for it.

This air rifle recommends you cock the lever and insert a .177 pellet with your hand on the cocking lever to prevent accidental discharge. When you cock it, you are compressing a spring with a piston attached. Everytime I cocked it I thought about the possibility of an accidental firing of the gun and my finger getting smashed by the bolt mechanism. This is not a quality air rifle and does not have safety features it should have to be sold in the United States.

There are many alternatives that just cost a few dollars more. Please don't ever let a young person use this rifle. It is cheap and can be found on the internet for $20. Yes, it is reasonably accurate and yes it is only one cock. I had two of them for one year and they started falling apart. The screws that hold the barrel to the stock loosen up easily. The rivets that hold the cocking lever started to break. Please just stay away from this cheap air rifle. You may use it for a few weeks or a few months but you will notice the air rifle deteriorates rapidly and you will in for a surprise when you get your thumb smashed when loading a pellet. It is not worth it to spend a few buck less on an air rifle and sacrifice safety. Just get a Crosman or Daisy Air Rifle for $50 and you will not ever have to worry about this Chinese air rifle from hurting you.
