I've had my Beeman rx-2 for 3 years now. It is a great pellet gun, but not perfect, what is? It looks great, very accurate, but weighs a ton carrying in the woods. It chewed up one regular rifle scope already, the cross hairs were floating around inside the scope. Now I'm using a crossman air rifle scope that has given me no problems. Quarter sized targets at 30yds are no problem off a rest. It has shot a small deer at 23 yds between the eyes, and it fell in its tracks. Skunks… Read Full Review

Overall, an excellent and powerful gun. Consider using the heaviest pellets you can find, e.g., Beeman Kodiak or even Eun Jin to stand up the fierceness of this gun. Lighter, less sturdy pellets will deform or even shatter when spat out by this beast.
The trigger felt a bit heavy at first but is now buttery after the break-in period… Read Full Review

First thing I noticed taking this Beeman RX-2 out of the box was good the overall quality is. The laminated stock is beautiful and everthing just seems well made. This is the first "gas ram" rifle I have shot. It seems to be much quieter than my Gamo 440 and hardly any recoil. I feel this is due to the guns weight. It is a heavy rifle, so I wouldn't recommend it to those who are small in stature. Overall it is a great rifle and I'm very happy with my desicion to purchase it!… Read Full Review

Finally got an Beeman RX2 in .22 after having a lot of other airguns, including Webley Patriot (great gun) and R1 (super quality). RX2 is my favorite. High velocity, quick lock time, just a Thunk and pellet is gone. Super power. I just nailed a crow in the top of a tree about 40 yds away, held directly on him, dropped like a rock. This rifle feels like it will last a few lifetimes. Worth the money… Read Full Review

First thing that hit me is that the Beeman RX-2 .22 is much nicer looking than any of those garrish web photos. Finish was buttery smooth, with out any burs or the like. Unlike the internet pictures - no, this gun is not orange!!
Picking it up, it's obviously heavy, but not grossly so. It takes a little bit of a while to accept you arent carrying your 6 lb. rimfire, but you get over it - honestly you do. Bottom line is for my hunting, I walk a mile or so then get bedded in from a hunting… Read Full Review

The (you get what you pay for) screams from this Beeman RX-2 .22 rifle. Fit and finnish is very good. The cocking effort was hard but smoothed out over time so it is not a problem.
I have a 177 but is still very cabable at downing rabbits and pigeons with one well placed shot. It is difficult to lug around on hunting tripes so get a sling.
Its also very accurate, can get 50 to 70 yard dime sized shots at the bench. Somtimes it is capable of 8 out of 10 with 2 fliers. I'm also able to shoot… Read Full Review

Got the Beeman RX-2 .22 Air Rifle in 177, with a taso ss16X42 scope, 30mm belkin one peice scope mount.
This rifle is nice and I have no problems with it. Got over 2000 rounds through it and shoot almost everyday. I'm able to get good dime sized groups at 50 yards with CPs. The cocking was the worst part but I finaly got to a point that its more broken in or a got used to it. I've been able to hit birds at 50 yards away and also been able to knock down rabbits with one shot.
I would recomend… Read Full Review

Purchased this Beeman RX-2 .22 Air Rifle from straight shooters and it was the cheapest that I could reliably find for about 525.
Took a week to get here. Was deliverd in plastic gun case sorrounded by two boxes.
Unpakaged it and damn this gun is nice. It is a lot nicer then my BSA SS, RWS 24, and 34.
It has made in Germany on the end of the reciver and on the barrel part, there is THEOBEN "cool".
There are no visible nicks or dings.
The plastic sites are cheap but I will take them off and… Read Full Review

Got the Beeman RX-2 .22 today and couldn't wait to fire it. Picked up a tin of Beeman .22 Silver Arrows. Believe it or not but up here in Cheese land (WI.) they all call airguns toys and don't put to much thought into stocking ammo for them. I was lucky to get the tin I got and the kid at the counter was incredulous that there was a difference between pellets at all! Took it into my basement cause it was already dark out and started blasting at five ring pistol targets from 25 feet into a… Read Full Review

The Beeman RX-2 .22 is a great hunting rifle, with lots of power to get the job done. Can get heavy on long walks, but is very stable when shooting. The gas ram can be left cocked for extended periods of time with no ill effect to the gas ram itself. Accuracy is icredible for a gun with this power… Read Full Review

The Beeman RX-2 .22 is Very accurate and powerful. It can get heavy on long hunts, but is tolerated when the quality, power and accuracy are so good on this airgun. Cocking effort is bearable, but is harder that the majority of other airguns. If you want a powerful, accurate well made gun, this is for you… Read Full Review

Beeman RX-2 .22:
It has been my desire to include a 20 fpe Springer in my collection of air rifles, pretty much since I first saw my two buddies, Mark L. and Mark W's. Timahawks more than a year ago. I love my PCP hunters (Career 707 and Timberwolf) but there are times when one goes so far a field that it would be nice to have a gun that can reach out there and touch varmints at 70 and 80 yards, without having to worry about how much air I have left, or how far it is back to the scuba tank.
I… Read Full Review

Small Game look out!
I bought a Beeman RX-2 at .22cal around three years ago and it just keeps surprising me.
After shooting my trusty RX-2 thousands of times, I can say that this is the Ultimate air rifle hunter.
The Gas Ram is a big plus since you could leave the rifle cocked for very long period of times, and this could be very beneficial when stalking game. The RX-2 is VERY accurate!
I shoot an average of 1/2" groups at 35 yards (If you don't believe me, shoot me an e-mail at… Read Full Review

I bought my Beeman RX-2 in .22 cal used for $325. It arrived without a single blemish on the entire gun. I am very pleased with every aspect of the gun except for the clear coat used on the finish (laquer?) of the wood, it is very brittle and quite susceptible to minor dings, mine acquired 3 or 4 chips in the finish before I noticed it. I really like the gas ram, very smooth to cock and shoot. The safety is resettable via a small lever in front of the trigger gaurd. I bought the pellet sampler… Read Full Review

Got it last Friday for the weekend. Went through about 400 Kodiak pellets, hitting a 1 inch construction flag stick at 35 yards every time. Using US 25 cent pieces (~1") for targets on the ground at 40', hit 'em every time. Packs a punch. Through both sides of a paint can at 100' away. Mine is a 0.20 calibre.
Very heavy rifle. I recommend a sling. You may need to break the barrel across your knee, then change position to cock. Reminded me of a very highly strung compound bow draw… Read Full Review

I shot about 1000 pellets using my Beeman RX-2 .22 air rifle and couldn't get the gun to group. I expected it to shoot better than my R9 and was hoping to use the gun for long, 50 yard target practice (mine is .177). It would shoot well a few times then be off to the side two inches. (from a rest position, and i'm a fair good shot). I suspected that with it not latching properly, maybe the barrel had some play. I've sent gun and scope back to be checked. I expected more from a gun that cost… Read Full Review

Move over Pro-Elite, there's a new gun it town!
I recently purchased a new Beeman RX-2 .22 air rifle. I had been reluctant to purchase the RX-1/RX-2 over the years mainly due to the fact that they weigh close to 10lbs. Since earlier purchasing of both a Venom Tomahawk .22 and a Pro-Elite .22 I am still in search of the ideal .22 for small game hunting. I think I've found it.
When I opened the box I immediately got out the chronograph to compare velocity when new and after 500 pellets. I would… Read Full Review
