“PROBLEMS AFTER 8MONTHS USE”

Written on: 29/03/2012

I bought my smk xs79 from a local Surplus International I was replacing my old BSA Meteor with a newer gun. I bought the xs79 and bought a 4x32 scope and silencer for Rabbit shooting. The gun was very well sighted in and last year i had kept the rabbit population down a bit but I had only shot around 800 or so pellets(Milbro .22 SELECT).and the gun started loosing gas through a small hole on top off the barrel. I tried replacing the 88g bottle with another but it leaked all out through the same… Read Full Review

did you screw in fully then release a little ? get an adapter from 88g to 12g capsule , I've read that if you leave gas in for a long period of time the sceals can freeze

“Let's be honest here. These rifles are rough diamonds...”

Written on: 20/10/2010 by Biffo1262 (11 reviews written)

Let's be honest here. These rifles are rough diamonds that need some work on them. Out of the box they will do some 8ft/lbs on average but can be brought up to power with a little work - WITH CARE and a chrono. NEVER attempt to tune a rifle without a chrono. If you go over 12ft/lbs you are likely to find yourself a guest at HMP hotels and your rifle junked! The XS/QB79 can be very expensive to run using 88g Airsource type CO2 cartridges but it is possible to fit a 7oz paintball bottle to… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2010

i recently bought an xs79 for my son as i used to have an xs78 a few years ago. it cost me less than a hundred quid new and was even better than my old xs78. i got him a 3-9x40 scope for under thirty notes. the stock is much too long for him at the moment so i will have to chop it down for him. despite this though he can still hit the centre of a playing card at 30 yards. brilliant gun for the money. check out his videos to see for yourself.

Written on: 04/09/2010

i have had this gun for about five months. it is a very good gun but theres one problem you can't tell when the co2 has run out. you can fire about 60 shots the way you can tell its run out is that it gets weaker and quieter.
overall i would recommend to anyone that doesn't want to spend hundreds of pounds. i brought mine for 86.95 pounds and thought that to be quiete cheap… Read Full Review

I have just got my smk supergrade xs79 excellent value for money its powerful i had a silencer fitted wich makes it whisper when fired and fitted with my Simmons 3-9x50 deerhunter scope its amazingly accurate at 30 feet. The only down side is i had to modify my scope mounts to fit the narrow rails on the gun.

Written on: 27/10/2009

I bought my XS79 from my local dealer for about £100 with roughly £60 of extra stuff including a really decent scope, mounts, extra CO2 and wasp pellets.
This is my first air rifle so i cannot really compare it to other rifles, however i was VERY impressed, i expected an in-accurate glorified BB gun for £100 to be honest however i was pleasantly suprised.

The rifle is EXTREMELY accurate, i managed to annihilate a vodka bottle in one shot from about 20 meters away with the first shot i ever… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2009 by soloandy1989 (3 reviews written)

I just picked this SMK XS79 rifle up today expecting a utilitarian weapon with paint applied by a monkey and machining done by a man who hasn't had the use of his eyes for quite some time now. Do not buy a B2 rifle and expect the rest of the smk range to be like that. This is in a different league! The action is smooth (ish), the trigger beds in surprisingly quickly, and it sits very well at the shoulder. It is very well shaped and sized for a medium sized person (5' 9"), although the cheek… Read Full Review

With the help of a friend I have this rifle hitting a penny/one cent coin at 25 yards prone, and a 2 pence coin (just over 1 inch) standing. It is actualy more accurate with the moderator that I bought for it, although this does make me worry as to wether this will make the barrel droop over time as the barrel support along the length I feel is inadaquate...

It's a very good rifle, it's small, light, powerful, very accurate, and the co2 canasters last surprisingly long, been hunting three times with the only one and still hasn't run out.
have had no problems taking down rabbits, pigeons, and pheasants even at 70 yards. Bolt action, user friendly, good rifle for beginners. No bad points about this rifle, (in my opinion)… Read Full Review

Excellent value for the money , good and accurate as it is but with only a little work can be truly excellent . If you are reasonably handy you can take the workings out of the stock and Tidy it up . I would heartily recommend the upgrade from T R Robb , especially the trigger kit , it's easy to follow the DVD and the improvement it truly excellent . I have also modified the stock to fit me , if I can work out how to upload the photographs I will do so as it is very basic joinery but has made a… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2008

highamluke 123 the only upgrade kit I have tried is the one from T R Robb and I believe you can use their replacement springs etc to take it over 12ftlb of course subject to your having an appropriate FAC. It's a very simple project, just watch their DVD and you shouldn't go wrong. I would suggest you give them a call to discuss your requirements they are very approachable. As I've said in a previous comment in my view the works to the trigger mechanism gave the best improvement, a little application or fine emery paper and set the adjuster screws transformed the action. Good luck and happy hunting.

I am planning to buy a SMK XS79 and was wondering if anyone has any advise on upgrading it. I have a FAC if that makes any difference, and would appreciate any advice regarding recommended upgrade kits and suppliers.

With regard to the pictures , I tried to upload them ,but it didn't seem to work ! Regarding the T R Robb upgrade it improves the efficiency as well as power , for me the Trigger works recommended on the DVD worked excellently , turned an OK gun into a real pleasure to use .
