    Beeman Underlever

    It looks like my Beeman Underlever is in stock, although the website does not show it.
    The charge is pending on my credit card which clued me in.
    Now it shows processing instead of back order on my account at Air Gun Depot.
    I'm kind of excited.

    Maybe a call to them is in order?

    They just sent me an email that it is shipping 8/1/2022 and estimated arrival on 8/4/2022.
    FedEx usually arrives a day or two later here.

    I just received my Beeman Under lever.
    I was looking it over and couldn't find the bolt handle.
    Then it hit me! Under lever stupid! Well, it's been a long day.

    Operational issues will resolve themselves by reading the Instruction Manual.

    This is true.
    It was just one of those absentminded brain farts, if you will.

    I really like the rifle, very easy to cock, hits like a hammer, I'm impressed, and it only cost me $240.00 shipped to my door.
    Of course, I had 10% off and free shipping, made a big difference.
    Another thing I like is the beautiful wood stock, seems a lot of people these days prefer plastic, one guy that reviewed this rifle went so far as to paint his stock black, go figure.

    I now have both the 2027 .177 pistol and the underlever 1358 rifle in .22, both Beeman's.
    I bought Buck Rail moderators for both of them.
    They are inexpensive and seem to work to make these guns a little more backyard friendly.
    They are 3D printed by a veteran one-man outfit in Texas.
    I got the two suppressors and a picatinny mount for a bipod al for $64 dollars, of course he needs to raise his prices soon.

    Congrats on both your Beemans! I picked up a 2027 .177 PCP and am still "blown away" at the remarkable high quality which came in a PCP pistol at its incredibly low price -- when I bought mine it was ~ $130.00 USD! Dr. Beeman surely "isn't turning over in his grave" re this product albeit he had sold the Beeman company several years back, and -- this pistol is made in China. Surprising to me, also, is my s/n is 122107xxxx89 -- TWELVE numbers long! (Perhaps the first four may be, say, a date code?) Anyhoos -- if they started at zero -- that's a LOT of pistols !

    The serial # on my 2027 is 122109xxxx39.
    I think these things are selling like hot cakes, the rifles too.
    I never thought I would buy a PCP because of the price, and then there was how to charge it.
    So far, I have made do with the hand pump.

    Wait,,, Are you talking about a Weihrauch HW77 from Beeman? or something else?

    the HW77 and 97 are both underlever guns which have been around for some time. I got my HW77 -.22 in 1990. It has been a solid performer ever since, as have all of my Weihrauch Air Rifles,,, my Favs are my HW35EB (my first one from Beeman,) and Regular 35E found in a surplus shop in town for $60!. New ones are about $550 now and that gun has been in continuous production since 1951!

    So what exactly did you get?

    Randy -- my guess is OP is referencing Beeman's $249.00 USD offering (at Airguns of Arizona: https://www.airgunsofarizona.com/pre...pe-and-mounts/ ). It looks like "quite the package" to my eyes, albeit -- like the 2027 PCP pistols -- is most likely (definitely?) made in China.
