WHat sort of accuracy can one expect with the TF/QB58 side lever in either .177 or .22?

Wonder how much like the Fast Deer they are, the KL-3B. I looks like it. The Deer had a direct sear trigger which was not bad after break-in. I have a .22 Deer which shoots 431 fps average. Not the most accurate but does pretty well with the right pellet..

thanks Frank. I'll see what else I can dig up on this little side lever rifle.

A friend had one for a while and I was quite impressed with the little sidelever. Had it been a .22 I would have likey snagged it. As for accuracey I never shot it on paper but it was pleanty competent on outlr plinking range at medium to short ranges.
He added a gold aftermarket trigger that really helped change the pull weight and overall trigger feel. Very easy to cock and the shot cycle was very nice. Can't recall if he went inside or not.
I think it's a nice little gun that reminds me a bit of the Webley Tracker carbine sans tap and with a better trigger.

In our "Gold Service" testing of the QB58, I've found accuracy and general performance to be very comparable to the QB57 - not too surprising as they're essentially take-down and fixed barrel versions of the same gun.

There's an analysis of QB57 performance on the Archer Airguns blog and - if you've not seen it - this may give some useful data for making your decision. It's here http://www.archerairguns.info/search?q=QB57

My personal opinion? I like the QB58 and think it deserves more popularity.

Thanks to both of you, Brian and Stephen. It seems there is a .22 version of the rifle available now, Brian. Stephen I checked the link you provided, and paged down to find your write-up of the QB-58, and your impressions of both calibers. Odd the .22 should come in dry while the .177 came in "wet". Nice to know the stated velocity of the .22 actually was matched by your testing. There is not much info on the trigger, except the stated pull you recorded. Well, I did read further on and saw part 2 of the QB-57 review. Is that the same adjustable trigger as in the -58?
I'll consider this rifle a bit more. It seems interesting, and with the accuracy as good at ten yards is demonstrated it could be a useful addition to my small collection.
thanks again guys,

I owned an Archer prep'd QB-58 and it was by far one of the easiest springers to shoot accurately that I have ever owned. If it had been in .22 caliber I would probably still own it. One of the few guns that I've shot during 40 years of air gunning that I felt needed no further attention after it was received. Accurate and a joy to shoot.

That's a very good reference, saying the rifle needed no further attention after Archer prep'd it.

Stephen Archer what does your prep entail?
thanks!
