Shanghai/Industry catalog

Got a copy of the Industry airgun catalog along with some accessories I ordered from Archer. Interesting to see they still make the QB88 and the B4-1 sidelevers as well as the break down QB57. Would be great if these were still available here in the states. Also still show the SS2 sidelever match pistol.

That sidelever ...

Russ, I bought one of those from James at Fun Supply many years ago.
Where have the years gone?

Yep, picked one of those up, same as XSB3 sidelever but now called XS B5 if I recall. I haven't shot mine much as it's pretty rough cocking and seems I need to strip and rebuild it from the start, believe these have synthetic piston seals vs the leather of the b3

Wish they exported them to our shores

Cannot figure out why they don't export those models anymore. Surely there is a market. I'd love to have a crack at the SS2.

SS2--- Count your blessings. Save your money

January 7 2017, 9:17 PM 

I had an SS2. It shot pretty well and quite smoothly for about 500 rounds. Then the sear or some internal part wore and it wouldn't stay cocked. I sent it back to Compasseco for repairs. It took months and when it came back, I assumed they'd fixed it free under warranty. I found out later that they'd charged a credit card of mine that they had on file. sad.gif

The SS2 was very crude in every way compared to an FWB and the cocking mechanism had sharp edges that hurt your hand after a shooting session. The sights were also crude and the back sight was canted. There were review articles on the web comparing the SS2 favorably with the FWB65, but they were untrue.

My advice: Spend the extra $$, get a nice used FWB, and don't look back.

Scott, sounds like it was not a good product.

It had potential, but just didn't measure up.

At the time, an IZH46M only cost $50 more & I foolishly decided to try the SS. sad.gif
