ValentinRoche's review of Shanghai QB36-1

★★★☆☆

“Unknown Rifle”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by ValentinRoche (1 review written)

July 2014,I bought a .177 OB36-1 for $50.00 including a 3-9x40 scope. At first I and no one knew what it was, until further checking. The wood stock is solid and nice color ,just about all metal and as heavy as a FBE 300S. Under barrel cocking has two safety's. On to reposition the cocking arm and second to allow into a firing mode. Crono at 596 to 601 fps using 7.0. To the shooter it seems a bit loud, however the expected recoil for a springer is minimal with the stock rubber shoulder pad. The factory rear sight is just a must throw a way. A Air Venture Target Sight has allowed this QB36-1 to shoot a respectable 0.75" ctc at 10 meters, and 1.5" ctc, or less, at 25 yds. The trigger release is heavy, I have yet to work on a way to reduce the pull weight. If it can be done to a reasonable pull this will become my go to rifle with out spending $500.00 plus dollars. I hope this review will help you in evaluating this interesting rifle. Be aware that I gather these are no longer made and parts may become limited. However for the price and its accuracy this is a very good 10 meter target rifle to begin with, and not break the bank , to start.
