Review this product
17 March 2009  

Things I liked: I was impressed with the accuracy and power and initially I liked it heaps but ........ read on....
Things I would have changed: Quality of the internal parts ...... It's OK provided your shooting program is fairly minimal. (a few pellets every now and then) Part of one of the seals spat out and something went clunk inside.
What others should know: My B40 failed terminally after about 2000 rounds. It went into the service agent's pile of B40's to send back to China. Fortunately it was still under warranty so next time I'll choose better and just pay more for quality.

Things I liked: the fit and finish on my gun were great..no flaws or wood filler that i can see...i guess i got lucky.this is a beatiful rifle..the pics dont due it justice.no plastic.
Things I would have changed: so far nothing
What others should know: i did have one issue with the ball detent poping out allong with the spring one time..reinstalled and have not had anymore issues as of yet.this gun is pretty quiet.so far as with all my guns it seems to like jsb exact in 15.9g the best although im not done testing yet thats why i gave 4 stars for accuracy...so far its exceeded my demands and seems to be getting better with use.i also have had no issues with poor pellet loading as some others have had.as far as performance goes it rivals the tx200..just my 2 cents.

Things I liked: The wood to metal fit ... the finish on the wood and metal... the overall appearance of the rifle... the under barrel cocking... the fixed barrels effect on accuracy... the outstanding trigger performance ... the rubber butt padding... the absence of any plastic parts... the feel of the rifle when raised to the firing position... the eye relief of the Leapers 3-9x40 Scope
Things I would have changed: The cocking lever ball lock catch on this gun needs QC attention. The ball and spring popped out for the ball fit in its housing was not sufficiently tight. Another QC matter I encountered was with the seal that closes on the breech was cut damaged and not a good fit. These two problem areas are relatively minor failures easily corrected by replacement of a couple of small parts..
What others should know: This air rifle has been improved so much that it is a pride to own. It is a beautiful rifle and a good shooter. While the rifle is a little heavy, that likely is a plus for stability when firing. I find nothing cheap or sub-standard about this rifle.

Things I liked: Just recently I puchased a .22 cal. Bam 40. I find this gun very accurate and quiet .My wife has not shot a rifle for 30 years and I had some difficulty convincing her to shoot at a target that I set up. Well! 4 out of 5 shots taken fell inside the bulls eye (almost on top of each other). These shots were fired from 30 yards out. Needless to say she was a happy camper and I am a happy consumer.
Things I would have changed: The trigger and install sights.
What others should know: This rifle is a very good buy.Aside from the trigger mechanism that needs some adjusting I find nothing wrong with the quality and performance of this rifle.
