my brother inlaw bought a Beeman R1, and had it accurazied at the factory. It has a Leupold 1x - 4x scope on it that was modified by Leupold for air rifles. Think it maybe a .177, but not sure. Anyway the proof target he recieved with the rifle was about a quarter inch!! Uses it for squirrel hunting mostly, and has killed hundreds of them over the years. After about twenty five years the rifle started to malfunction, so he sent it back for a tune up (life time warranty). It comes back in a couple weeks shooting just like a new one.
Many years ago the shooting club at work put out a poster inviting everybody to come to their indoor range (20 meter) for an open shoot for 22 rimfires and smaller stuff. He asked them if they let him bring his pellet gun! The guys laughed at him, and said go ahead! He was shooting groups close to half the size the guys with their High Standards were shooting, and of course won everything! I had to listen to them cry out it for six months! The next year they put a rule out saying no rifles, and he threatened to buy a match pellet gun just to get under their skin
