I purchased a QB78 from ARCHER and when I received it the box was smashed and the gun could not be sighted in due to a bent barrel. After paying to ship it back for another one, I received the next one and the trigger was completly out of adjustment and VERY SCRATCHY feeling. After dealing with this issue and then having to pay to ship this one back I decided to fix it myself! After shooting this replacement I then noticed the power was WAY down in this gun, I asked about this issue and come... (read more)

Well I bought one of these QB78 rifles because I liked the look of the Bolt action loading.
I normally use an AirArms S410.22 but I would back the QB78 against it anytime.
The QB 78 is a good rifle that can be made great with just the minimum ammount of tuning ( 2 parts that's all).
Out of the box it Chrono'd at 8.75ft/lbs after I tuned it it was giving 12.75ft/lbs so I had to retune and it's now at a steady 11.50-75ft/lbs and it gives about 30 - 40 shots before the powerlets need... (read more)

I have recently purchased my second of these fantastic value guns. I did not buy the second, to "replace" the first but aswell as. A lightweight Co2 powered rifle of outstanding accuracy. Infinitely tuneable to a devastating (FAC)level. I love the bolt action breech and loading with pellets is simplicity itself. quite frugal use of Co2 gas gives around 65/70 full power shots from a couple of "sparklets" capsules. At 10mt or 25mt "lesd on lead" is easily possible from the box-standard gun,... (read more)

The Industry QB78 Deluxe is a beautiful, all wood and metal Chinese rifle that looks a lot more expensive that it really is. Shooting it is an absolute pleasure as it does not have any recoil whatsoever. It is also very, very accurate. I'm no sharpshooter, but can hit a quarter size target at 20 m 9 out of 10 times.
I have tried several types of pellets with this rifle (RWS SuperPoint, RWS Masterklugen, GAMO Magnum, Crossman Copperhead Wadcutter, etc.) The RWS Masterklugens work well,... (read more)

After reading so many great reviews, here and elsewhere on the web,for the QB78 I decided to go ahead and chance it on another Chinese gun.
I was well aware that they are crude at best and almost always need a little work out of the box.
When I started to search for where to purchase I noticed that retailers were asking $8 to $10 more for the QB78D over the 78 so I ordered it instead!
Another gamble as they really weren't clear as to just what the 78D had over the plain 78.
It came clean,... (read more)

Beautiful out of the box. You would never guess this is Chinese.
This .177 rifle takes 2 twelve gram co2 cartridges and shoots spot on. I'm truly impressed. I put a mid quality scope on it and shooting accuracy now feels like cheating. My backyard range is only 30 yards and will now have to be enlarged. (read more)
