Back in the 70's my first rifle was a Chinese Arrow rifle Cheap and cheerful. Couldn't afford exotic Webleys or HW's Fast forward to a few days ago. A friend of a friend was after a cheap rifle and one came up in the local paper so I bought it for him It turned out to be a new, still in the box B2 It was essentially my old Arrow,. There was a release clip to open the break barrel up, it had SMK stamped on it but it was the same gun. As I said things don't change. It even had a rough edge… Read Full Review

I bought the SMK B2 because I had vermin problem. I had owned airguns years ago but was not up to speed with current models. I would have bought another model but to be frank that was the money I had. In short the quality of the rifle is fairly poor. The first stock split and was replaced immediately by the RFD. Accuracy was around a six inch group at 15 meters. After firing a tin of low quality pellets through it and giving it a major clean this improved to a 4 inch group. Fitting a scope… Read Full Review

I have recently come to own a smk b2custom. And was quite pleased with it until! I realised that I had paid much to much for it!I thought it was a bargain at £119 with bag moderator and scope. All though it does shoot slightly to the left like people have stated! I have no issues with the power of the 2.2 when using point extra! Seeing a holes in a 2cm wooden panel is impressive! But the damage on the exit side, more so!nor did it have a problem with making the same mess out of a few steel… Read Full Review

I wanted to but an air rifle for a long time, but as my budget was very low I did loads of revision on different rifles until I fell upon the smk b2. Like many people, I did research on the rifle and was put off by the amount of negative reviews about this little springer. I would like to share my experience about this rifle. Firstly, the rifle is cheep. Very cheep. This is why I was so nervous about buying it. As they say you get what you pay for! And straight out of the box the rifle is… Read Full Review

i think this gun is a realy good value gun,for those not wanting to spend too much its perfect,its very accurate but i have to shoot a little low of the target to be on target but ive got used to that now ,i use to own a bsa lightning which is better than the smk b2 but not by a lot and the price of that gun made me less satified than i am with the b2,just a powerfull as the more expensive rifles,£40 well spent… Read Full Review

I'm a FAC (0.223) and Shotgun licence holder and I used to have a AA S200 for disposing of rats and the like in the farm yard, but sold it last year. I recently decided I needed another air rifle for the same purpose - small moving targets at max 20-25 yards. Oh, and I didn't want to spend much. Decided on the B2 Custom because my local gun shop had them on special offer for £50. Out of the box with iron sights I was getting a group of 3" - not great! Then I fitted a middle of the range… Read Full Review

Bought one with a scope from our local rod and gun shop for £39.99, £5.99 for some pellets and £2.99 for gun oil. Owned a B2 before my kids were born then reluctantly sold due to having kids, have just set myself up again for less than £50. The fact I've bought a second says it all. Its a cheap gun that will give hours of fun, great starter rifle. Don't think its lazy though, I wouldn't want to recieve a pellet from one… Read Full Review

OK, picture the scene, I want to get back into target shooting so go for the Westlake B2 (now imported by SMK), for the money it appeared too good to be true, a wood stocked, break barrel gun. But no it was right and it was soon married to a small SMK scope.
Picture the scene, the wife is having a go at my home made target range, it is approximately 25 feet to the target from where she is firing. Pulls the trigger and she gets hit by the recoil which is fairly hefty. The slug riccochets off… Read Full Review

Further to my last post (one previous on board to this), Take the piston out and file off any burrs. Spin it in a pillar drill at about 800rpm and use some wet and dry paper (1200grit) to polish the piston. Be careful not to touch the seal. Wash the gun bore with WD40 and abottle brush, then dry with lint free cloth. Deburr any sharp edges. Lubricate piston and seal very lightly with VP90 gun oil. Use a Diamond rasp to level the laminations of the trigger mechanism. Round off the catch edge of… Read Full Review

Like everybody else here, I own a B2. I have had several rifles over the years including an antique BSA breech loader and a Webley. The B2 is certainly comparable to either of these and out of the box quite easily competes against Air arms and the likes in terms of power. The gun is cheaply made, so quality is always going to be an issue, but for the money, it does the job. The trigger is a bit heavy, and this coupled with the recoil can cause it to miss targets that softer sprung guns would… Read Full Review

I bought one of these a couple of days ago for £30,another £30 for a 4x32 scope. Its ok,the break lever was a bit stiff at first but soon loosened up.Fired at a baked bean can.dead on target and right through,something my old cometa couldnt do. Folks need to stop bashing this rifle, ITS ONLY £30 ! three rounds of beer with your mates,that much. For its price its fine; crude,yes but thats what makes it appealing and you can do it up.if it was £150 then ok it would be rubbish,but not at… Read Full Review

I have owned several of these rifles over the years.
They are great air rifles out of the box , fairly low powered but great for plinking in the back yard or teaching people to shoot.
They do however improve if you strip them down , de-burr any sharp edges , fit a neoprene piston seal , and better quality spring.
I have carried this out on 3 of my B2 rifles, as above with good Mo-Di grease, they are fantastic to shoot.
They will produce about 9.6 / 9.8 foot pound of energy after the work is… Read Full Review
