“Beeman GS1000. Junk and Cabela's are no help”

Written on: 28/05/2012 by dougmcdonald (1 review written)

Purchased from Cabelas and they are useless. No Help. The rifle wont hold center and they said I need to contact Beeman. However Beeman acts like they never produced the gun. Great Customer Service on both parts. This is why I will never buy from Cabela's again. I've spent thousands of dollars and even gone on hunts with Cabela's....never again. Ive hunted all my life and Ive never seen a company not respond to a challenda such as this. I felt that at least one might help. Nope...not happening… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2008 by greginfo (1 review written)

I have had my gun for 4 years, have shot thousands of rounds through it, and its accuracy stinks, especially with heavier pellets. I tried different rings, scopes, cleaning, lubricating, and different size/brand pellets, and nothing has improved the accuracy. At 60 feet my groups average 5 inches side to side. And that's using a stand. Beeman isn't what it used to be… Read Full Review

This is a Spanish made Norica gun not a German made Beeman or HW. Most Norica like the popular Rws 94/Cometa 400 are powerful and accurate still not at the build standard of HW but soild hunters and plinkers.
<br/>
<br/>But its relative you won't be satisfied with a Norica if you are use to the R1,R9 or HW 77 or 97 quailty and trigger which are $300 - $500 plus high quailty air rifles.

Researching these starter adult rifles stamped Beeman you have GS, GH & SS series all are various degrees a chinese copy of the spanish GS. The GS being the most fancy and refined.
These rifle sport a nicely formed sporting stock with a soild butt pad capable of 780-650fps in .22 pending the pellet. All are very accurate and shoots well the GS series boast a .25 ctc and the Gh & SS boast a .36 ctc level of accuracy at 10meters.

A correction - only the SS1000 is a Chinese copy; the GH is the hunting version of the GS, both made in Spain. Some of the GS's have fancier stocks then GH & SS. I take it the "h" stands for hunter.

Written on: 16/05/2008

In my last statment I stated that the GS/GH/SS series have better accuracy then the Gamo, I have to re-cant that statement after putting like scopes * mount on my Gamos the accuracy is near the same. These rifles may have better build quailty then the Shadow series Gamo vs. The GH fiberglass series but I hear the trigger on some SS/GH are terrible and so not as good as a Gamo.
<br/>
<br/> If you get a good GS/SS the trigger will be slightly better stock but you won't have the 3rd part help that Gamo has.
<br/>Put a Gamo GTX trigger in it and it is far better then a GS/SS stock trigger and so is any modified car, house or gun over stock most times near the same price.

No they are made by Norica, another Spanish air rifle company. I own several Gamos and these rifles are just a step up in quality from Gamo. Most have a better trigger and accuracy - some, like the GS, are made considerably better then the Gamo 890 - 440 or even its Shadow series.
<br/>
<br/>I&#039;d compare the Norica/GS/Gh/SS series to the Spanish made RWS 94/93/92s - all of which have very good reputations. It's a slightly better rifle than the Spanish-made Gamos but it's not as popular - most bb Gamos are good rifles but are not as accurate in my opinion as the GS/Gh/SS series or the RWS 94 - maybe it's the CFX fixed barrel.

Would the G possibly mean Gamo, like Gamo Hunter, Gamo Sport??? Aren&#039;t the Gamo&#039;s made in Spain? I wonder if Beeman is having their cheaper guns made by Gamo. I had a Gamo Hunter Sport and it was really a piece of junk. It was advertised as a Bull barrel. The barrel was merely covered with a plastic sleeve.

Hello again, here in Portugal we are not very familiar with "Beeman", however I do own something like the Beeman's GS 1000 "Spanish twin sister" called here in Portugal: "Norica Marvic Style".
Note that the model "Marvic Gold" from Norica manufacturer is precisely the same model that "GS 1000" manufactured by Beeman.
However mine is the "Marvic Style", and being more or less the same machine, my rifle has a silvered barrel and cylinder that I've been told, as being a nickel's anti-rust… Read Full Review

My son bought a Beeman GS1000 from Cabelas for his 12th birthday (Dad paid half). I was so impressed with it's accuracy, quiet operation and pile driving power (compared with my 20 cal Sheridain) that I bought one too. We have been enjoying target practice in our back yard, shooting into a heavily padded target box. The gun shot well out of the box - 5 shot groups initially averaged .5 to .75 inches at 25 yards. After about 1000 shots, I checked the receiver screws and found them to be… Read Full Review

Got the Beeman GS1000 .22 and read the papers on what to check and look for and got ready to shoot. First few shots were a little weak but around the 20th shot were hitting hard and didn't have to adjust the scope at all. Around the 30th shot I saw that the cross-hairs inside started to turn but did not effect the accuracy of the gun and mind you all shot groups in 5's were less than 1/4" and some were right on top of one another at 35' with a bench rest using the Beeman silver bear… Read Full Review

I wanted something for varmits. I read all the reviews. It didn't have to be the fastest or the fanciest but I wanted a good, accurate, reasonably priced adult air rifle that could take down a rabbit at 50 paces. Well it can do that and a lot more.
This is a wonderful air rifle. Extremely accurate using Beeman .22 Crow Magnums.

Purchased my Beeman GS1000 .22 at WallyWorld at a great price as a scope combo with Beeman 3-12 X 40 Scope Model #5059. Out of the box all I had to do was adjust the windage and with less than 20 shots I had that scope sighted in to 100 Ft. Plinking Quarters and Dimes with extreme accuracy. After 800 shots the scope busted ( I should have checked for loosenes) but the people at Beeman were top notch taking care of me.

I ordered the combo gun and Beeman 3x9 scope with the two piece mount. After firing over 500 rounds, I am still working with the gun to get a consistent grouping. I have shot it at 50 yards and saw NO significant groupings. At 25 yards, I am finding that if I get a group started (2-3 shot close) it begins moving off target low and to the right further and further. After talking to the Cabelos Tech Rep. (who by the way said I could return it) he questioned my technique and shooting capability. I… Read Full Review

I think a 1 piece mount might fix the problem check to see if all the screws in the stock are snug. Then sight it in at 10-15 yards, then 25-30 yards then out 50-60 yards.
<br>
<br>I just went through the same process with a B20 in 22 a near clone of the Beeman R9 supposedly and my Gamo S1k really the S1k didn't have any problems. The B20 I had to resight it in for CPH instead of Daisy pointed.
<br>I couldn't hit anything with the pointed at 60 yards. We sighted in at 15 yards with the CPH and friend sighted in his .22 Gamo & Beeman S1 after that (with a 10mph cross wind) we were busting 4" clays at 60 yards.
<br>
<br>He then started using his old Beeman S1 in .177 and was still busting, My S1k did the same. So Beeman makes some good stuff even their copies are designed well.
<br>
<br>I'd suggest finding a pellet it shoots well at 10 yards, then the 1 piece scope mount, then running 200-300 pellets through the air rifle.
<br>
<br>When you fire the AR stay in the scope or don't move for a second. Watch were the pellet is hitting while still in the scope. The springer has a forward and backward recoil movement during this time throws the shot off.
<br>
<br>If this is done I bet you can get 2"-1.5" groups at 30-40 yards maybe 50.

You guys do realize that shooting a spring-powered rifle accurately is more difficult than a rimfire rifle, especially a .22.
<br>Springers have a 'technique' to holding them that you have to master. Not too tight, not too loose. Remember, they're spring-powered, so there's a totally different (and opposite) recoil to a springer than a powder-gun. Play with it more; you'll figure it out. These are very good guns.

I recently bought the GS950 which is very similar to the 1000 and I've had the same problem. Beeman say's send it back and they will fix it. I would but that's a hassle and I'd rather take it

Have you checked the screws on the stock and scope mount if they are loose this can change the POI of the pellet per shot.
<br>
<br>I'd tighten down the screws on the scope and get a paper target with multiple bulls-eye on it and sight the scope in with a pellet that the guns shoots well.
<br>
<br> Set the target 10m out and sight it in, then move out 25 then 50-75 yards. Doing this you can see what the pellet/rifle/scope/U is doing and how to make it group well.

I make my living building custom muzzleloaders and feel I am qualified to discuss shooting and guns. Overall I am very impressed with this gun. I use it for hunting and pest control and find it to have excellent knockdown power and accuracy. At 30 yards it routinely gives complete penetration on 1/2" plywood.
Accuracy is very good with midweight pellets. At 50 yards head shots on squirrels are routine. Within 30 yards, you can literally pick which eye to hit.

Steve1024X768's Response to goosekilla's Review

Written on: 02/05/2004

Any springer type air rifle needs 500-1000 shots fired through it to smooth out the action to obtain best accuracy. My GS-1000 was horrible for the first 100 shots, heavy, rough cocking. Poor accuracy, getting 2-3" groups at 50 ft. at an indoor range. Then it started smoothing out. By 500 rounds, I was getting 1" groups. My shooting technique improved after reading lots about shooting springers. I lightened up the trigger pull adjustment a little (the screw inside the trigger gaurd). At 1500 rounds, it will pick any crow out of a tree at 29 yards (laser measured), 98% of the time, just ask the latest 49 crows hit this season... I have not had it on a bench lately, I don't feel I need to. It does EVERYTHING I want it to and more! I highly recomend it for a entry priced air rifle!

So sorry you didn't give your GS1000 the time to break-in. It can transform the performance of this fine product and give you a chance to appreciate what it can do. I am assuming you got the Norica version of this gun and not a cheap Chinez clone. If your rifle was of chinez origin you did the correct thing by
returning it promptly. Please consider giving a quality air rifle another chance in the future.

I had the opportunity , when i bought the rifle, to lay it on the counter top at the store with 11 other guns in the 100-200 dollar range and it was by far the best appearing of the lot.

I couldn't agree more with this review. This rifle is powerful, accurate and one of the better air rifles to come out of Europe. I have put down bunnies and Magpies at between 45-76 metres with this rifle using H&N Diablo Baracuda. I have tried the Winchester 1000 and the Gamo 1250 both of which lack the quality,finish and accuracy of the Beeman GS1000. Whatever the guy with the .22 was doing is a puzzle- to put through only 20 pellets and then give up defies logic. Any gun whether air rifle or firearm needs a little patience to sight in and get the best out of it - unless he's cross-eyed of course!

<br>My vision is not as accurate as i wish so the use of a scope is a must, but I am a little confused about which one is best.

The Beeman GS100 .22 is one of the finest European airguns available for under $300. It is a very well built, and reliable rifle, capable of blasting a 14 grain pellet at over 700fps past 50 yards with lethal precision. It has acceptable finishing, and is very sleek. While certainly a hunting gun, it is not well suited to long trips afield, and is not ideal for smaller or younger shooters, as it is very large, heavy and takes a respectable effort to cock.

The diference between the GS 950 and GS1000 are the stock, the GS1000 have a more expensive and fancy stock. The difference in velocity are only a marketing strategy.
This change in \"dress\" are typical in many European and Turkish airgun makers like Gamo, Diana and Hatsan.

Derek, I know little about the GS950 in .22, and have never owned or fired one. I do, however, believe that it's performance will be similar to that of it's big brother (GS1000) These are good guns, and with a little trigger work and some internal polishing, they should make great hunters!
