Hi got this Industry Brand QB78 second hand from BAR cost me 55 pound great little gun for the price works well but a little low on power for rabbits good for rats and pigeons good pellet groupings no recoil getting 60-70 shots per fill. Think i will get the kit from TR ROBB. The only bad thing i can think of is the gun is very loud. Over all this gun is great value for money i got my qb78 as a project but would make a great first gun or mid range hunter… Read Full Review

I ordered the QB78 from Blackpool Air Rifles as a kit and overall I am glad it came as a kit. I got the gun, a silencer, a Hawke HD 4 x 32 scope and even a pack of 10 CO2 cartridges which were not mentioned in the spec for the kit.
So what's it like? Straight from the box this has the look of the Crosman 1077/1077W and is often described as a copy of this rifle. It's not. The look may be similar enough to provoke the comparison but closer examination reveals that there are vital differences… Read Full Review

I have owned several of these rifles.
I enjoy tinkering about and generally improving what is esentially a great rifle.
The rifles are good out of the box, but very good after a mild tune up , as in strip , de-burr any rough edges & fit new seals & O rings.
This transforms the rifles into very good shooters.
There is an unlimited amount of tune-up tips and advice on the UK Chinese airgun web site , together with details of merchants specializing in selling seal & O ring kits.
All in all very… Read Full Review

As stated above, the Industry Brand QB78 is a re-engineered clone of Crosman's 160 series of CO2 rifle. Like it's noble forebear, the QB-78 is a single-shot, bolt-action CO2 rifle with a roller-sear trigger and manual safety. What is new is a steel breech with 11mm scope dovetails. The action cocks by opening and closing the bolt, which is convenient and very slick. [NOTE: I kind of miss the cocking action found on my old Crosman 180 (a carbine version of the 160), in which the knob at the… Read Full Review

I bought this gun because it was cheap and fancied a new toy. I have since purchasing stuck on a silencer a night vision scope and built a custom stock. I polished the barrel silver and bored out the ports replaced all the seals. Looks great now and the power is loads better. Pics available if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is probably the best QB you have ever seen… Read Full Review

I bought my QB-78 about 1 year ago. And right out of the box its a wonderful plinker.
It has simple iron sights and an 11mm Scope rail.
Its Bolt action and uses 2 Co2 cartridges.
The wooden stock i found to be adequate but very ugly.
So I removed it and placed a new one from an old K.K. hunting rifle.
The inner workings of the QB-78 are simple so if it ever brakes you kan easely fix it yourself.
Also for the handy airgun lover its easily tunable. And for the money you will pay for it its an… Read Full Review

Bought this air rifle a couple of years ago, and have since fired over 5000 pellets and still love it. This is a cheap entry levelplinking air rifle, but if you adjust the trigger right its a joy to use. There is a lovley solid action when loading the rifle.
I removed the safety completly after the tab broke. Fitted a scope. Changed the O-ring in the cap as it was leaking.
In my opinion I think that this air rifle for the PRICE represents unbeatable value for money. It has a much more solid… Read Full Review
