Heavy rifle with absolute horrendous trigger pull. It's basically unusable unless at a full rest. The barrel is accurate but because of the trigger you lose the performance. Best I can say about it is it's a complete piece of junk and Beeman should give you your $$$ back. (read more)

I am very pleased with this Beeman SS1000 rifle. I bought it for plinking and to deter backyard pests, and it fulfils these tasks easily.
The first thing that I did was attach the .22 barrel. I tested it at about 35yds and my grouping was within an inch. The scope is more than adequate at this range. I don't have a chronograph, so I'm not sure of the exact feet per second, but the shots obviously had quite a bit more steam than my Daisy 22 SG: they were drilling fairly deep holes in the...

With a little customizing of barrel and trigger it is a pleasure to shoot. I do prefer using the heavier 22 cal. over the .117 cal. Good rifle, but to make great takes some modifications. The Beeman SS1000 is a pretty heavy rifle; the trigger is also quite heavy and has a long pull. (read more)

Hey I happened to have the Beeman Sportsman Series 1000 not 1000t (s) or (h). I am wondering if anyone knows if I can use an interchangeable .22 barrel for it. (read more)

I bought this rifle at "Wally world" for $125 with scope. Rifle has great quality and feel for the price. It's a little cumbersome for my son to handle, but that being said we both love it. The trigger pull was brutal at first, and needed a little "reworking", and is more pleasant to shoot now. (read more)

I`m with the 7th Ranger Regiment, just got out of Iraq, i got a medical discharge, but while i was there i had this gun with me, and i would use it to kill birds that land on the jeeps, and jets, and every other kind of vehicals around. This guns is very accurate,
i get 1/2 " grouping from 20 yards.
This trigger pull isn't that bad, shoot it about 50 times and it gets easier to pull.
This gun is very power full, it goes 1,000 fps, unlike alot of other guns that claim too, i bought a daisy... (read more)

The trigger pull was the worst thing I found on the weapon. When I called Beeman asking if the trigger could be adjusted, I was told to send it to them and they would find another weapon with a lighter trigger pull. I did this and when I got it back, they had replaced the trigger with one that is a lot lighter. I am not what or how they did it but it only cost the price of shipping it in one direction. They also sent a Beeman 3x9x30 scope back with it which I did not buy with this... (read more)

Have only had the gun for 1 day and have already experienced a number of problems. First, the trigger pull is HORRIBLE. It takes a tremendous amount of pressure to fire and thus it's difficult to get accurate shots. It's single stage and non-adjustable.
The safety never worked on my model and I ended up removing it. There's a ball-bearing under pressure by a spring that is used when you break the barrel for cocking the gun. Mine froze up after about 50 rounds and wouldn't come unstuck no... (read more)

The price of the pellet gun was great. I like to sported stock, the muzzle break, and the trigger pull to me is very good. I had to get use to the scope in making the adjustments but I finally got there. For a pellet gun it seems a little heavy but not bad, similar to my Marlin 22. But for the money it was good for me.
This is the first break barrels I have own and fired. I did a little research and a lot of reading to know proper shooting tech. But I finally got the hang of it. I took a... (read more)

I only target shoot with my pellet guns, nothing really worth killing near me. I have a Diana 350 Magnum that is powerful, accurate, and kind of loud. I thought this Chinese Beeman would be quieter for shooting in my backyard, it isn't.
The gun looks great out of the box with a nice piece of wood and consistent bluing.
Cocking it requires a bit more force than my friend's R9. I didn't bother mounting the scope right away because the fiber optic sights are cool. My first shot didn't hit the... (read more)

The scope is a nice addition to this gun. Unlike some others I did NOT have any problems with the trigger. I found it consistent and the break was clean. The accuracy is very good, I was getting the 0.3 groups at 10 yrs. I would recommend this rifle to any of my friends. I just picked this one up so there may have been some changes to the trigger system. (read more)

Like the other reviewers with trigger issues, I found it almost unusable because of the huge trigger pull required. I'd guess about 7-10 lbs. Despite the manual and adverts, the trigger is NOT adjustable. I found some relief by filing the sear shape to give less grip on the spring. It worked to some degree, but sometimes didn't hold the spring when cocked. I've worked it until it's finally dependable, but it wasn't worth the effort. I believe the problem is the trigger design itself. Looking... (read more)

Overall this is a great gun when compared to other models in this price range. Is much better and reliable (in my opinion) then the Crosman quest 1000 and think overall quality, price makes for a great air gun combination ! (read more)

The worst trigger in the business. The gun is basically worthless because of the HUGE force required to pull the trigger. I initially thought that the safety was on because I couldn't get the gun to fire. Ha, Ha. fooled me. The trigger is so difficult to pull that one cannot hit anything because of the effort to fire this piece of junk. Don't waist your money. This Beeman is a disgrace to the name. (read more)

I just bought this air rifle after some suggested higher end models. I got it home and started sighting the rifle with the plastic sights. I CAN NOT bring those dang sites in. I put a cheap little 4X32 scope on it, and got it sighted at 30-40 yards inside 1.5" after only 20-50 rounds through it. The trigger is STIFF. It really needs to be adjustable. (read more)

I bought this gun at Walmart for about $130. It was branded at a "model 1100". It included the ss1000 and a beeman 3-9x32 scope. The mounts and scope are well made and hold firm to the gun. I only wish the scope had a tiny bit more magnification. I have spent a lot of time with the gun in the last few days, and it appears to have been "broken-in".
Tried five different pellet brands, and gamo-hunter and gamo-rocket have worked the best for me. I went ahead and got a Beeman pellet trap 3... (read more)

I also purchased this rifle at big 5, on sale for $149. Given what I've read, I assumed it would be very accurate and an excellent.
Indeed, it is accurate, but its next to impossible to pull the trigger, I actually find my forearm muscles twitching when pulling the trigger and that's no good.
So, I proceeded to take the gun apart in order to adjust the "two stage, adjustable trigger". Of course, as the first poster mentioned, this gun does NOT have the adjustable trigger.
This makes the gun... (read more)

It turns out that there are at least 2 different Beeman "SS1000" models out there, the one I had was the "lower end" model that frequently sells for under $100.
The woodwork was poor, showing a number of sanding sworls while the metal finish, stamping, and bluing was not up to other cheap rifles (Quest, Shadow 1000). The trigger was NOT the "two-stage adjustable" type that's on the better model, it was a simple direct-sear - and it stunk.
Velocity was sub-par, below 800fps with 7.9 gr... (read more)

I love it.
Do not try to use Gamo ammo in the Beeman SS1000. They do not chamber correctly. Too long. You will shave lead in the chamber. I thought my first one was a lemon and took it back. Only to find out it was the ammo which was the issue. Haven't tried any others yet but shorter rounds seem to be the trick. Crossman rounds are super flat shooters.
I oiled it up before sighting it in. Trigger seemed better on this one than the first. It could be lighter but it's way better than... (read more)

Picked up the Beeman SS1000 (.22 cal) a few days ago and overall I'm very happy with this purchase. The rifle overall is a quality piece and there are only a couple things I would change to make it a perfect gun (will get to that later). Accuracy using the 3-9 x 32 scope is very impressive for a gun that's just $145 and easy to obtain! At 20 yards when sighted this gun has no trouble making very tight groups with many shots hitting the same hole or touching it. At first you may feel accuracy... (read more)

I picked up my Beeman SS1000 at Cabellas. The price is very reasonable at less than 200 dollars. After minimal adjustments it was deadly accurate at any range. I am able to pick off squirrels at over 40 yards with ease, thanks to the exellent scope. The seals on the receiver are outstanding, and the guns action is very smooth. I would recommend picking up a shooters kit from RWS. Like a car the gun needs to be maintained. I have had no dieseling issues with the compression chamber... (read more)

I picked up a Beeman SS1000 at the local big 5. I've been shooting high power rifle and smallbore 3 position rifle for quite some time. I was impressed with the SS1000 looks, weight and quality when I bought it. I spend the next two days getting used to the rifle. There was a large tag attached to the rifle that claimed it had been sighted in by a pro. The first shot was bout 6" high and about 2" to the left. So much for the pro sight in. Eventually I was able to dial in the rifle to shoot... (read more)

The Beeman SS1000 is a copy of the Spanish GS1000, the SS1000 is made in China. Its Stamped Beeman, it has a nice sporty wood stock, the wood stains ok, not as nice as the GS, it has no checkering and a different stain. Its still an attractive package.
Its easy to shoulder (if you are mid-large adult its not a 13yr old and under rifle) and it has a solid rubber stock butt, the bluing is on par with some of the better chinese rifles like the B20 but not as good as the B40, B26 or B50. It... (read more)

It seems to be accurate right out of the box, I am able shoot sub 1/2. (read more)
