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 Full Review

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.

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 Full Review
