Sadly the B3 can not be bought brand new here in Germany but I got a second hand B3 on the Internet. It was in a beat up condition, the cylinder end cap and trigger spring were also missing. I built a new spring from a mouse trap spring which works quite well. This Airgun is a realy simple construction and easy to fix or Mod up. I like the design, it reminds me of a WW2 Russian Army Rifle. It's well ballanced and fairly accurate, it's a nice Rifle and allthough I've been offered twice the... (read more)

Just bought one
in my country Chinese rifles are not preferable at all
i bought it for the price
but when checking it out
the stock is really hard (which is perfect)
cocking is little hard (which means good spring)
and for accuracy
have to admit, didnt do much shooting
but it was accurate and really hard it about 25 yards.
yes you cannot compare it to the 1000 FPS rifles
but hey, it is written on its case 650/600 fps
didnt measure it, but i think it is very true and really hard
handling... (read more)

I bought this gun yesterday and very glad I did it. It gives me everything I want! I told my friend everything I know about this gun and gave him to try it out. Under my control he did almost perfect shots. Even my mother wants to shoot from this gun. It is perfect gun for sports, fun and keeping f****** robbers far away from you. (read more)

Shanghai Airgun Factory B3-3 is a good low price air rifle, once you have the sights lined up you will find it is satisfactorily accurate to about 25 to 30 yards with a straight trajectory.

Bought mine for 25 ls=50$ in my country. Chamber and barrel were with a little rust which must be cleaned before shooting. It's a little heavy (~3kg) but really accurate. Easy in handling and reliable. Good for beginners and even better. (read more)

A good low price air rifle, once you have the sights lined up you will find it is satisfactorily accurate to about 25 to 30 yards with a straight trajectory. Mine came with a considerable amount of rust in the firing chamber and barrel but it cleaned up well. Despite being less powerful than my Gamo Shadow 1000 it is louder to shoot and requires a greater effort to cock. But you can't compare both rifles as one is a fraction of the cost of the other.

I have had the Shanghai Airgun Factory B3-3 about 6 years and have shot about 1500 rounds through it. No malfuctions of any kind. It hits hard and seems consistantly. This rifle sells for between $20-$30 dollars and can provide countless hours of fun. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants an inexpensive knock around airgun that can take a beating and keep on licking! (read more)

I got my Shanghai Airgun Factory B3 a few months ago and after some find tuning and the addition of a scope I guess you could say I am surgical with the thing now, I could shoot the acorn out of a squriels hands if I wanted to I've been giving birds head shots at will at about 25 yards.
A couple of my neighbors had already had bb guns so I was playing catch-up. The B-3 was shooting so well that when I told them how much I paid for it they could not believe it, that caused him to go out... (read more)

Paid all of $30, including shipping, for this rifle. Guess I shouldn't complain because it does well; however, straight from the box this thing was packed in enough grease to lube a large car. Not only that, but while taking the grease off I noticed some rust on the barrel (easily removed).
For starters, there is no way this rifle only does around 500 fps. This thing knocked my target stand back about 3 inches on the first shot. It must be pushing somewhere around 700+ fps.
Accuracy is... (read more)

So, I purchased a Shanghai Airgun Factory B3-3 in a local store for about 30 euros (in Finland). Honestly, I did not expect any miracles for this price, that's why I have been positively surprised. Right from the box the rifle have been dieseling like an untuned tractor, so the first thing I've done was a full disassembly and regreasing with weapon oil (I used Dextron).
The stock... that's a long story, it was covered with nitro-polish that'd been perfect for collecting fingerprints, also... (read more)

I appreciated indeed this air rifle . I have both calibers. When I compare the .22 with my Gamo Hunter 440, I feel Hunter 440 a lot more powerful;
Besides there's also a big diference on their prices. Therefore I must state that this Chinese air gun is a very good purchase. (read more)

The instructions don't give fps, but it seems to pack a punch. The weight is 3.3kgs (about 7 lbs.)and although the rear site is adjustable, I haven't noticed any change in accuracy whatever the adjustment. It just shoots off. (read more)
