I was disappointed with the stock color, too dark compared to those I saw on some gun user's blog. There are clearly brush marks on the stock. It does not fit the Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal gun very well as extra opening space was cut to the wood for installation of cap at the end of the gun. However, B20 does not have end cap because the safety switch is at the end of the gun.
The gun shoots accurately without a scope. I can't get the scope to line up with gun as the rail somehow does not... (read more)

The Xisico XS-B20 is good, accurate powerful straight out of the box, no gimmicks rifle. I had mine blued, shortened the barrel, made a silencer, looks like a Venom job and fires like one totally recommended. (read more)

Just got my Xisico BAM B20 from Cougar Ridge Trading Post. Unboxed it and was pleased at the appearance. Nice wood. Good grain with pleasing walnut stain. Fit seems good for a cheap chinese copy of an R9. Wiped it down and ran some cleaning patches through the bore. The outside was pretty clean but the bore was realy crudded up with some kind of preservative. Blueing not the best but OK. The rear of the reciever is not well fitted to the stock but I'll eventually shim it or bed the... (read more)

Generally speaking, my Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal is a very decent rifle with just enough flaws to give it an 8 instead of a 9.
The gun is as accurate as anything I've got, and while the power is a bit shy of a Shadow (about 40fps with the same pellet) it is still quite adequate. Cocking's a bit tougher than the Gamo, but not objectionable.
This gun generally gets good ratings for the quality of its wood and metal work, but for some reason it is common to find about a .1" gap between the... (read more)

After owning the Xisico XS B20 in .177 for almost a year and shooting it beside and with higher price air rifles. I'm still impressed for $96 it shoots well beside rifles that cost 3 times its price. Now is it worth the same no but its still hits as far out and as accurate as these high dollar rifles. From what I can see its not as nice as a R9 amenity wise and wokmanship but its just as accurate with like shooters.
Late at night I was shooting the B20 its favorite load is the 10.5 cph, I... (read more)

Overall it is a good rifle if a company like RWS is willing to pick it up and say this is mine. This rifle is now a RWS 320! Let this be heard the workmanship is as good as our Germany made $400 to $500 rifles and for the broke American it will sell well for $140 or so? (read more)

I recieved my B-20 in .177 a few months ago and was at first impressed until I had a chance to shoot a few hundred rounds through it. Everytime I take it out and shoot it something else falls out or off. First it was the mounting screws, then the pivot cap, then trigger screws. After that was all loctited the front sight fell off. I had to cut a slot in the base of sight with a hack saw in order to get it to tighten up on the barrel slots. I also had to make a 3/32 shim to fill in the space ... (read more)

I got my Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal last year from Compasseco in Bardstown, KY. As I put in my summary, the gun did diesel a lot for the first 50 shots or so...that's perfectly normal for a new springer, but I had to think of SOMETHING bad to write...
This gun is just SO GOOD. I intended to have it tuned, but I have had such success with it so far that I have never got around to surrendering it to Charlie DaTuna yet! I will, though, I will.
The B-20 is an outstanding break barrel with nice... (read more)

Mine is the Xisico XS-B20, .22 Cal. After about 100 shots. The Sear Engagement Screw fell out. Other than this it is a very accurate gun. I get consistent Dime size groups at 15Meters, with JSB Exacts. Fit and Finish is good, no Milling marks on the Metal, Stock has a few minor Blemishes. For the Money you get Accuracy, good looks and a well balanced Gun. Fix the Quality Control Problems and it all about the Accuracy any way. I replaced the Sear Screw with a longer one with a Spring for... (read more)

My Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal has not been tuned yet I keep saying that I'm going to send it off, to the Tuna, but I can't decide if I should tune this or another rifle.
During the 1st review I was just breaking the rifle in, shooting 10-30 meters getting some tight 5-10 shot groups using the CP 10.5 pellets.
In this review I took it to the Gun club to shoot at a longer range 25-75yrds and against mother nature. There was a 10-15mph crosswind; I had to adjust for out pass 50 yards. The 1st... (read more)

The Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal just arrived with my TF97, I took the B20 out its box and it inspected it. I found that it was nicely made rifle with looks good it also had nice balance and flow. I cleaned the metal with some gun oil, polished the wood with furniture polish. This made wood and the metal work look even better. It is a good looking rifle. I took the Tasco 3x9x40 scope off the TF2522 replaced it with a Gamo 4x scope. I rearranged the scopes on 4 rifles to not have to buy another... (read more)

I got the Xisico XS-B20 .22 cal. model and out of the box it had a light layer of rust forming. I wiped it off w/ no problems. Put it on the bench of my backyard range and shot at the 10 yard target. Shot very consistently to the left. I had a hard time getting the open sights to make adjustment, but I think it was operator error. It's getting dark so I quickly mounted the scope using the big 1 piece scope mount and a BAM 4X32 scope. Shot the 10 yard target again and made a few... (read more)

I bought a Xisico XS-B20, .177 cal from Sportsmans Guide for $69, had it sent to Charlie-Da-Tuna for a SUPER-TUNE. The gun is very accurate, very consistent, great trigger 22ozs. The guns as new are rough, they really respond to the tune dramatically. I can group at 1/2" at 30yds with CPL. It shows tremendous consistency for a springer velocitywise. Typical 10 fps extreme spread with CPL. Avg right @ 900 FPS. Have several 45-50 Starling kills with it already. I recommend the gun and... (read more)

I bought the B20 after reading a few articles on it and saw no bad reviews on it. After receiving it, I was really impressed with its quality. I own a few Chinese air rifles[B21,B4-2,Q78,KL-3B]and this one definetely is the best made of them all. I did some adjusting to the trigger screws to my liking and now it works like a gem. It was advertised at around 930 fps and with the lightest pellets I had 6.5 grain, the highest I recorded was 850fps. You might do better if you had someone tune... (read more)
