Does anyone have any experience, good or bad, with the Chinese youth air rifle Model B1-1? Below is a description:
Youth One Stroke barrel cocking airgun
Powerful youth one stroke barrel cocking airgun. Comes with a hardwood stock, grooved for scope, and adjustable sights. Steel barrel with rifled bore will shoot .177 caliber pellets. Comes boxed with an instruction book.
Youth Pellet Gun .177 Caliber One Stroke B1-1Regular price: $39.99Sale price: $24.95
I posted this on the General airgun forum, but I have been informed that I should not refer to other competitors on this site. If you need further information, please email me. Just thought I would get a little more feedback. Thanks.
For the same price you can get the Fast Deer KL-3B from Fun Supply. They are higher in quality and a better value than the youth B1-1. I believe the Fast Deer is more powerful, so it may be a bit harder to cock for a youngster or someone of slight build. The Fast Deer is geared more toward full sized adults. Unless you are buying the airgun for a child, you would probably do better with the Fast Deer.
You can get Fast Deers at www.FunSupply.com. The sponsor of this forum is James Kitching of Fun Supply. The link is posted here. The catch is that he did't sell them individually. At one time he had them in both .177 and .22, but I'm not sure on what is available now. Maybe he will post details here. Look at the Fun Supply website under case prices. He has a description of the Fast Deer there too.
A while ago someone was looking to split a case of something...but i think it was B-7's not Fast Deer...should be a few pages back.
Wonder if we could do this for Fast Deer...hmmm case if of ten though,
we would need a bunch of people, or have several want more then one.
And whoever recieved the case would have to ship them out to everyone...which isnt realy cheap.
bleh it would be about 35-40 dollars per gun end cost. Not that 40 is a massive amount in absolute terms but thats a heck of a lot of bother and shipping costs for a 20-25 dollar rifle. :-/
I know of a source for buying the Fast Deer in .177 individually. James at Fun Supply sells them, but apparently only in case lots of 10. Out of fairness to Fun Supply as the sponsor of this forum I thought it would not be appropriate to mention a competitor. Where ever you buy them, the Fast Deers are a great choice for a high quality, low cost airgun. I have one in .177 that chrony's out at about 650 fps with 7.9 gr pellets, and it is all original with no tuning or mods. It's just right for the rabbits that raid my garden.
The barrels are sometimes very good, and in spite of the strong trigger pull, shooters have reported great accuracy from them. The .22's seem to shoot the longer distances when it comes to FPE.
I would vote to instead, try an F/D and get a rifle built by a division of a company that made high-end .22 R/F's for the Mainland and export. Quality, solid, all steel parts throughought the rifle. Priced nearly free...
I have been searching the web for the Fast Deer and found one site that now offers them at $39.95 each, not including shipping costs. Since apparently no more can be imported, the value rises as the supply dries up. Fun Supply still has them in case lots at bargain prices. I have one in .177 that chrony's at about 750 fps now(was previously about 650+fps), without much work in the tuning area. Fun Supply advertises them at 650 fps out of the box. Some sites advertize them at 850 fps, but that must be with light pellets, etc. Either way, it's a great airgun at a bargain price!
