    I’m brand new here but I have been a Airgun enthusiast for a long time. I need help determining what kind of rifle I just received as it is very odd. It has Theoben marked on the barrel which is 10” long in .22 cal but the rifle itself has no markings visible? It also came with two .25 barrels one short 10” and one a bit longer. I say it’s odd because it looks like a Beeman R1 in most respects but has no markings on the receiver. It appears to have the Beeman two stage trigger also. Is there a way to upload pictures here for better clarity? Any help at all will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!

    You can upload pics by using the icon to the right of the yellow smiley face.

    You may need to have a certain amount of posts first, I don't recall.

    I considered that but the stock is different, the trigger is different, and it has no way to fill the gas ram as the back of the receiver is solid?

    Looks to be a Theoben barrel on an HW/Beeman… If it's a piston gun and not a gas ram it's not a Theoben!

    That looks like an unbranded Weihrauch HW80 with a shortened barrel. Nice gun, but not a gas ram.

    Thank you!  That explains the recoil pad being Weihrauch then. I prefer a spring gun so this may be a nice shooter? I’m looking forward to trying it out tomorrow. Did Weihrauch do this for Theoben or a custom builder just using the barrel?

    Thanks! Was this possibly a custom job? It has a Weihrauch recoil pad. The other two barrels are not branded? The trigger is definitely not Theoben and looks very Beeman or Weihrauch.

    Yup an unbranded HW80 that was put together by prior owner using Theoben barrel.

    You may have an theoben anschutz barrel there if it is they are very accurate.

    As it turns out you are absolutely correct. It is a Anshutz Theoben barrel and today I sighted it at 30 yards. It likes the artillery hold and 14.3gr. Pellets. 
    it shoots easily under 1/2 inch groups. Cocking effort is aggressive with that short barrel but easier with the two handed method. Thanks for all the help and information!! So I’m guessing someone bought the parts from Weihrauch and that’s why it’s unbranded as they were sold as spare parts? The gun shoots amazing and is accurate. Next I will chronograph it but my guess is in the 850fps. range to maybe 900fps. Cheers!!

    That's good it is a anschutz barrel most of them are not pellet fussy either very well made,sometimes the hybrid airguns shoot the best.
