The SS1000-H is made in China. I had the .22cal version without the interchangable barrel. While it is not up to the quality and accuracy of the "R" model guns that Beeman imports from HW in Germany, it still is a good shooter for the price. I kind of look at the dual caliber thing as more of a marketing gimmick. Every time you switch out barrels you will have to resight it in. (kind of a pain in the A$$). If it were me I would pick a gun in a particular caliber and just stick with that. (I'm partial to .22cal) The only other gun in that price range that I would consider would be the Crosman Quest 1000 (.177) or Quest 800 (.22). They sell for $116.00 or less over at pyramydair.com. If you are willing to save up your money a little bit longer, I can highly reccomend the Crosman/Remington NPSS which sells for about $300.00. I bought one last fall and love it. It's accurate, quiet, relatively light weight, and cocks easy. I nailed a ground squirrel with mine at 67 yards.

Although I don't own one myself, the Beeman R-1/ Weihrauch HW-80 is an outstanding air rifle. It has set the standard that just about all other break barrel air rifles have aspired to ever since it was first introduced. The only thing is that unless you can find a used one, you are going to spend around $600.00.

I just read how beeman is putting it's name on air rifles from china and that is degrading the name.The company has changed hands since the original founders.They sa yyou have to compare beeman rifles by models now not by the name.this is a good read http://www.pyramydai...compare-to.htmlI have a place to shoot squirrels that can only be safely shot with air rifles so that's why I am looking for one plus they are fun to shoot .

Learn to shoot that Wheel bow of yours :smiley_green_with_envy: . Im kinda looking for an air gun also . But im realy a cheapo. :(
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

The point about Beeman is they were not a manufacturer...just a US distributor...my understanding is the German rifles (HW) will be a separate enterprise back east...Beeman in Huntington Beach,Ca will be the Chinese outlet..via Walmart,etc..A few here have Gamo's..biggest issue was trigger which can be fixed with aftermarket kits..

Took out many squirrels with the Gamo Big Cat. ($129?). Longest squirrel kill was a measured 87 yards. Also a dove from 95. It's got a little recoil and not the best trigger but it worked for me. Get a decent scope.
