    There a pretty good gun !

    It's a clone of a Beeman R9/HW95 

    I had one in .22 a few years back and tuned it with ARH parts and installed a Beeman trigger blade that made it much better than the factory one but it still wasn't bad in stock form. The one I had was the regular sporter stock but i believe the -2 is the thumb hole version and you will need high scope rings because of the really high comb of the cheek rest. One of the best Chinese clones out there along with the B40 which is a clone of a Air Arms TX200.

    Let us know how it works out for you!

    The R9/HW95 in 177 is my favorite springer and I own several variations of these guns. The B26 is a clone of these fine rifles and the earlier verson of the B26 was the B20 which was my 2nd air rifle that  I ever purchased. I believe the balance between the power and handling for a field gun in 177 is met with both the clones as well as the more refined guns.

    I learned to work on these guns starting with that B20 which was abused. They are pretty easy to work on I have found I prefer the older style stocks but that is a personal preference. I also found the barrel assembly from the R9/HW95 (or siblings) fit that old B20 so I believe the B26 would share that same trait (just for your info).

    Enjoy your gun…

    It's been many years since I have seen one in the classifieds sections of the three forums I frequent.

    FlyingDragon (the last importer I know of) does not list any on his site but he does list a B25 (RWS 34 clone) for $130 and would give it a basic tune for $40 or a full tune for $100. Those prices are before shipping as of today (July 2018).

    Used guns seldom list for more than they were new and the B26 is in the same power class as the B25 so you could possibly use that as a guide to value. A tune by a known tuner can add value but that also is tied to how it performs currently. Another factor is the stock style, when these were common on the forums I saw many posts about the thumb hole stock that were not positive due to high comb.

    If you've bought it for personal use they can be good guns and worth the time to become aquainted with.

    I had a BAM B-26-2 which was a fine rifle after I cut an inch off the height of the comp of the stock.  I also had a B-25 with the excellent bamboo thumb-hole stock – easy accuracy.  RC
