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... (read more)

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 more)

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. I wasn't able to distingished any better groups with the GS...

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 more)

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 more)

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...

Beeman GS1000 .22:
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.
My grandson and his friend came over and I gave them 2 cans of pellets and 30 minutes of lessons.
At the end of the day, I put quarters, on... (read more)

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 have finally shot my 2000 shot and this baby is stronger and...

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... (read more)

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.
The scope is good and... (read more)

I took the Beeman GS1000 .22 air rifle back to Cabelas after firing it about 20 times. I felt robbed, I expected more for my money which is my fault I guess. This rifle is meant for shooting cans but i wanted a gun fr pest control. It just felt poorly made, parts seemed cheap. You get what you pay for. (read more)

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. But would it shoot as well as its competitors? The first 50 rounds grouped poorly. I went thru the gun and checked the screws and re-examined the fit. everything looked good. After 200 rounds my son noticed it was shooting much better. It was true and the gun continues to preform better and better. We see... (read more)

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. Overall, it's probably the best... (read more)
