I got me Beeman air gun at walmart in Panama City Fl. It cost me $125.00+ Tax. I like that you can change the barrels from .177 cal to a .22 cal. I set a 3/4 inch plywood at 25 yds and went all the way thru the wood with .177 cal.,I love the power it has!! also copperhead makes hunting pellets (which is what I used on the wood) are the best so far that I use. As for breaking it in, I went thru the wood with my third shot right out of the box!!! (read more)

This Beeman shot within 1/2" of where I was aiming first shot! The backyard range is about 30 yards. The Beeman comes to point almost like magic. It is very stable and has a suprisingly good trigger for a springer. I don't feel the need to do any adjusting of the trigger yet.
I am aware that this gun is actually a Norica made in Spain. In fact, there was a Beeman GS950 sticker on top of the Norica logo which is on top of the gun behind the rear sight. The sticker comes off with a little WD40... (read more)

I bought this Beeman GS950 rifle for the reputation of Beeman and this price (basically the same of Crosman Quest, Daisy 1000 and many China clones and below the price of a Benjamin 1000 and RWS 94).
In metal and wood finish, sigths and accuracy this rifle compare favorable (superior) to my guns Daisy 1000,Industry Brand B2A2, RWS 93 and Daisy 131. In shooting performance my GS950 are equal or litle below my RWS94 over 35 yards.
For pest control, this rifle eliminated cleanly a mongoose at... (read more)

I bought this Beeman GS950 .22 rifle because it was on closeout from a mail order outdoor store for $118.00. I wanted a Magnum .22 break barrel rifle, and the price was very right. It's a Beeman branded rifle, but it's not a German Beeman. This rifle is made in Spain by Norica and imported by Beeman. It is approximately on the same quality level as a Gamo. It has nice metal fit and finish and decent reddish stained wood. It shoots very well but without modifications, it's pretty harsh... (read more)

Beeman GS950 .22:
After 30 years of shooting an old Crosman, I decided to treat myself to a modern, "quality", air gun in the $200 price range. The GS950 looked and felt like a great candidate so I took the plung. Initially my only issue was accuracy, but a few other minor quality issues have come up also. The best consistant group I get with this gun is 3 inches at 25 yards, which in my opinion is unacceptable. I read the owners manual where they claim 500 to 1000 rounds must be shot... (read more)

The Beeman GS950 .22 is my second Beeman airgun. I have the break barrel pistol also. Among my collection I have two Gamo .177 cal break barrel rifles. They will sit on the shelf while I happily plink away with the GS950.
Thanks for a great product (read more)

I am a Beeman fan. Beeman is known world wide for its world-class air rifles, so I was shocked to see a Beeman product in Walmart. Curiosity set in, and after some thought, half a second worth, I decided to purchase.
The salesman warned me about accuracy problems and said that the barrel wouldn't break in for a couple of hundred rounds. Research on the web confirmed this. BS. To eliminate this issue, clean the dam thing before you use it. Seriously, Beeman uses wax and a lot of oil to seal... (read more)

I just bought the Beeman GS950 .22 at Wal-Mart!!! of all places for US $209 + tax. This gun was a "combo" set up from the factory with a Beeman 3x9-32 scope pre-sighted in at 30 meters. Accuracy out of the box was good, adjusted scope slightly and has put 3 pellets right on top of one another at 30ft, on a windy day. Accuracy seems very good for a brand new Springer; I have been told it takes approx. 50-100 pellets for the gun to settle in. I have gotten 2 finches so far with it, both at... (read more)

I read a lot of reviews and did a great deal of research online to find the best air rifle for me. I wanted to make sure my first air rifle was not a bad experience. I wanted a rifle you could use for urban pest control in an urban/suburban environment (mainly "dumpster chickens" that start making noise at 4:00am outside the apartment). I've used a number of rifles from .22 to .308 and .50. This was my first "air rifle".
From the factory, the scope was well-tuned but I... (read more)

First impression when opening the box was not good. The rifle was not wrapped in paper or plastic and had a covering of fine brown dust from the cardboard. The muzzle and front sight were unprotected from the rough handling of shipping. After wiping the rifle off with a silicone treated cloth things began to look up. All metal parts are nicely polished and blued with no visible tool marks. The hardwood stock is also nicely finished with a walnut stain, although there seems to be some grain... (read more)
