I've been thinking of getting another QB79 to keep set up with iron sights for general plinking and Bell Target Shooting during bbqs, etc. I placed the order online with Archer's Airguns, then noticed on the Chinese Forum that they were away at the SHOT Show, lol!!!
Luckily when the Archer's returned home, they promptly shipped my gun after performing the Gold Service on it and it arrived the other day. As with all my QB purchases, this one had a healthy coating of cosmoline/preservative covering it, lol, after a vigorous wipe down, a very nicely grained stock was revealed and surprisingly nice metal work!
Last night I finally got the chance to clean the barrel which was as well "preserved" as the exterior surfaces of the gun, lol!!! After about 60 patches, some Goo Gone, Flitz Polish, and KROIL, the patches finally came out clean!!!
Looking forward to sighting this gun in over the next few days! Thanks again to Archer Airguns!!!
