The b-3 was a very good rifle for the $25.00 i paid for it, had ok power fairly accurate and consistent. But after about 2.5 months my trigger came apart, because the only thing holding it on was a very loose fitting pin ,which could come out at any point while firing… Read Full Review

I think the only aspect of this rifle that I find fault with is the trigger sear; if at all possible, keep one hand on the cocking lever while loading, as the sear is unpredictable. Otherwise, its the most accurate spring powered rifle in my collection. I like it so much, I built a custom stock for it, added a 4-16x50 scope, and a bi-pod. It was worth the effort!… Read Full Review

The Chinese B3 177 Underlever is fairly accurate about 40-50 ft not to bad for around 20-30 dollars its a good and reliable little pellet gun
I stripped and refinished it and sanded finger grips in the stalk and it looks cool as hell I will have to say.
wood and medal wow that's better then the plastic ones that wal-mart sells for that same price. the wood finish was ok but it needed a little work… Read Full Review

The Chinese B3 177 Underlever is easy to cock for an Air Rifle. Has just about the same weight of the M14 military rifle. I bought this air rifle about 2 years ago and I've fired around 3,000 rounds of 177 cal pellets since then. I keep it oiled and cleaned after each use. Most of the time I use it to rid my property of unwanted pests. Which is hard to do with the sights needing adjusting so often. The sights are not easy to keep adjusted. Inserting the 177 cal. pellets are difficult to insert… Read Full Review

Great gun. got i and wasn't sure what to expect. i bought a daisy 4x scope and removed the rear sight(front sight is riveted on, but the scope sits high enough to see over it.) overall a good gun, and with just a $6 walmart daisy sight and about 200 pellets, it hits a 100 yard shot around a 1inch spread… Read Full Review

I bought a B3 a few years ago at a Cummins tool sale and expected very little for $25. At first, that is what I got - very little. The iron sights were way off even at full adjustment. Groups were 6 inches across when they hit the paper at all. HOWEVER, after 200-250 pellets, it has gotten much better. I mounted a (cheap) scope and I am getting 0.5" -0.75 " groups at 20-25 yards consistently. It will not replace my RWS 34, but you can't beat it for the price. There seems to be lots of… Read Full Review

When I first got it... was very inaccurate. However once the bore was cleaned and JB pasted, it started to improve and with more than 200 shots the groups got tighter 'n tighter.
Great price... You could pay alot more for a lot less rifle… Read Full Review

For $25, it's very good, but you get what you pay for. the sites arent very good.. the front one seems to be rivoted on; i dont know if scoping it would work. it's a great first gun (adult) or if you need a gun you can abuse and only lose $25… Read Full Review

Chinese B3 Air Rifle - Manufactured in China and sold under different names by American company's. If I were you, I would stay away from this air rifle. There are many alternatives that just cost a few dollars more. Please don't ever let a young person use this rifle. It is cheap and can be found on the internet for $20. Yes, it is reasonably accurate and yes it is only one cock. I had two of them for one year and they started falling apart. The screws that hold the barrel to the stock loosen… Read Full Review

Cheap and nasty. I hated this gun. The only use I would give it would be for some very close range plinking and even then I'd worry where my shot was going. On firing the gun jumps a mile and goes off with a resounding "clang".
The gun I borrowed was only a month old and already signs of rust were showing through the blueing. I can only suggest that this type of gun never made it to our shores… Read Full Review

First off, I presently own three of these not including the ones I've modified far beyond their original design. All are capable of 1/2 inch groups at 25 yards provided you have proper hold and break in period. Proper hold involves a very loose but controlled grip on both hands so that the rifle vibrates with a very slight buzz feel in your hands during each shot. Hold it too tight and the groups get a lot bigger. For a break in period a lot (Two 500 tins should be about right) plane lead… Read Full Review

I have had the Chinese B3 177 Underlever gun for over 5 years. It has never failed and is very accurate. I have a BSA 4x32 .22 special scope on it. I love this gun it's good for plinking, small game humting, or pest control :)… Read Full Review

My Chinese B3 177 Underlever air rifle was a gift from a friend who picked it up at a flea market a few years ago. It was in the original box with a one page flyer "Chinese B3". The web prices for similar models are about $30-55. A lot of grease in the barrel and on the gun. The rifle has power with very clear holes in targets, the pellets in the trap are totally flattened! When I added a shoulder strap, the screws came out of the stock. Also, the shallow screws had split the butt of the… Read Full Review

I got my Chinese B3 177 Underlever a week or so ago from a Cummin's Tools truck sale. My dad had bought two similar rifles from a pawn shop a couple years ago, and I liked them so well that I've been looking for one to call my own. The advertised price was $19.95, so I drove 20 miles to buy it. Turned out that I bought a couple hundred dollars worth of other tools, so with a little wheeling and dealing the sales manager threw the rifle in free, AND knocked off all the sales tax! What a… Read Full Review

My Chinese B3 177 Underlever is my standard by which I measure all the other air rifles I have. Yesterday, while sorting out a new Quest 1000 and the B3-1 was shooting Beeman Laser's at 740fps and Crow Mag. at 620fps. This is from a 15 year old gun… Read Full Review

The rifle I have is called the B3-1 just to avoid any confusion. When I first got it I was afraid I had wasted some money by getting a cheap air rifle instead of a $200 Gamo or Benjamin Sheradin etc. The trigger was hard to pull and I was getting 6 inch groupings at about 75 feet. I tried a cheap Tasco scope but the scope was having a bit of trouble staying in place. The gun smoked badly for the first several hundred rounds. I was consistantly pulling to the right when I shot because the… Read Full Review
