Written on: 25/03/2011

I owned the b3 many a year ago now, it was my first rifle and to be fare, im suprised im still here with my eyes and digits in tact. at first the rifle was great - seemed powerful and consistant enough, i took it hunting and succesfully killed a couple pigeons and even a tough old pheasent albeit the pheasent took 3 shots. including the final head shot. what upset me about this rifle is, even though it was well looked after, after a while the underleaver would start to spring back on itself… Read Full Review

I'm more than very surprised that at the very first sign of problems with your gun, you didn't immediately stop using it to investigate what you should have recognised as a potentially dangerous fault.

I hope for your sake that you've learnt something from your experience.

I just purchased mine and it looks like its relative and old favourite of mine and my friends-and the two I owned, "The P-45-3 Lion Under-lever" this B3 has power and accuracy-it is the real successor to "The Lion" which was also a '22 The B3=Great rifle and very robust.Perfect for hunting or pleasure.It feels like an improvement and fires easy.My only criticism is the trigger feels a little to far from the handle stock-even then my applause is tops to the manufacturers.A notch above the… Read Full Review

It's this sort of lunacy that this airgun section of review centre can well do without.

For the uninitiated, what this reviewer is describing is how he was able to make a perfectly legal air rifle, which by its very design is of modest power - and well within the legal muzzle energy limit for this class of air weapon - totally illegal, and if the old Bill had caught him he would have faced a 5-year prison sentence.

No wonder he posted as a 'guest' no doubt hoping that another layer of anonymity would hide his true identity from prying eyes!

The B3-F .22 Underlever is a great rifle with superb power,i took my first shot with the rifle at a target in front of my aluminium garage door (the old thick gauge aluminium)first i got the flash from the end of the barrel then missed the target and the dome ended pellet almost penetrated the door,good job it wasnt a pointed one. only down side is noisey, so trying to find a silencer to fit. anyone know of one and where i can purchase one in uk?… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2008 by the shootist (2 reviews written)

I've owned my B3-f rifle for a good while now and I have to say that for a rifle of it's class it's brilliant!
It has very substancial power for most types of shooting, firing accurately and consistently. It doesn't take long to run in and finish dieseling, so from then on it's just pure shooting pleasure.
The first thing you will notice when setting sight on the rifle for the first time, I'm afraid to say, is the terrible stock finish. So out comes the fine grade sandpaper and after a short… Read Full Review

" They can easily produce a clean kill on birds and vermin from the same distance and are said to be more than adequate from over 200yds."

I wonder who said that the B3-F is more than adequate from over 200 yards and with the implication of clean kills too!

You are writing about what is a very affordable and sub-12ft.lbs.air rifle which normally, after a few hundred pellets fired, will be lucky to chrono at 7 ft.lbs.and most of these guns are around 6 ft.lbs. One-inch grouping at 50 yards? You'd be lucky if the pellet reached the target!

The magazine chap's opinion on value, I can agree with AND with some of your review until your 750 feet per second claim, which, from a more-than-likely sub 7ft.lbs. gun, unless it was dieselling badly over the chrono you were measuring the muzzle velocity on, is patently and demonstrably absurd..

For the sake of the unknowledgeable and impressionable who may come to thes pages in the quest of what they hope may be reliable and sensible information, are definitey NOT served by all your hyperbole and misplaced enthusiasm it generates.

Friendly tip: Find reviews and information on this gun from Phunky_Stu because I do most solemnly state that he is Review Centre's resident expert who has even gone to the trouble of fitting a gas ram to his piece!!

“I got mine with a telescopic sight for about 50 pounds...”

Written on: 12/07/2007 by Rummon (2 reviews written)

I got mine with a telescopic sight for about 50 pounds a couple of years ago. Mainly use it for target shooting in the backyard. I thought it had plenty of power and was reasonably accurate... until I tried a slightly more expensive CO2 gun that was reputed to put out 8ft/lbs.

The B3 does not put out anywhere near 8ft/lbs - let alone 11 or 12. The B3 has a kick when you fire it that means you can't hit a target adequately at a distance of more than about 15 feet (i.e. 20mm or less from… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2007

Just to be clear: it makes reasonable power for a cheap gun - but nowhere near 11 or 12 ft/lbs. If anyone thinks this gun is better than a BSA or Crosman they're dreaming.

Being my first air rifle I didn't really won't to spend a lot on one I paid £30 at my local gun shop what I though was a good price. I'd looked up the rifle on the internet and found out that it was a very easy rifle to tune your self and easy to make it a £100 air rifle with little work needed. It took me about 3 hours to tune and make a real good air rifle there's loads of sites to show how to tune them. Once i'd finished my tune and had a go with open sights at 25ft I was hitting bull every… Read Full Review

" Bad stock finish " - the finish on a stock is probably the most important factor that indicates how good a rifle is. For example, some bottom end SMK models have what looks like an inch of varnish on them - this points to the quality of the rifle in most cases.
<br/>
<br/>Generally the glossier the stock on a rifle, the worse it will be. Of course this doesn't apply to every model but it's a good rule to go by !!
<br/>
<br/>Hope this helps you - and next time you should spend a little bit more, because rifles can get so much better for a little more cash :
<br/>
<br/>I could recommend the SMK XS 36 (sometimes called the QB 36) which is an underlever for £80 maximum. Also have a look at the SMK XS 78 or XS 79 models, which run on CO2 - this means that there's no kick and hence greater accuracy, and they run at 10 ft/lbs which is near the legal limit. You can pick one of these up for around £70 - very recommended.
<br/>
<br/>Regards,
<br/>
<br/>James.

Written on: 13/02/2007 by ivanparkin (1 review written)

I am not a regular shooter , but I found myself in need of a air gun for some occasional pest control. I could not afford or justify spending hundreds of pounds on a gun that would sit in the wardrobe most of it's life, so when I saw the ads for these guns I was attracted mainly by the price.
After reading some of the reviews on here I decided to give the B3 a chance.
Fortunately, the reviews had prepared me for what the gun would look like and they were right, looks like the stock has been… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2006 by Hunter440 (4 reviews written)

I have had mine for roughly a year now, during this peroid it has never once misfired or let me down. The stock is poor but i'm told if sanded down and re-varnished it does come up very well. This gun is capable of cleanly knocking out a Crow at 50yrds. When it comes to pellet choice i found H & N copper pointed pellets provieded me with a consistent 1 inch grouping at 25yrds.
Although the gun is a little on the heavy side, you get used to it and should still be able to shoot free-standing… Read Full Review
