Q: What is a B3 rifle?

A: The B3 I’m testing is a .177 caliber single-shot spring-piston rifle that’s cocked by an underlever resting under the barrel. This rifle weighs 7 lbs. 2 oz. and measures 40.25-inches overall. The barrel is a trifle longer than 16 inches. The pull is 13.25 inches, which is short for an adult rifle, but still within the acceptable range.

Q: What is a bam-b3 air rifle?

A: The BAM-B3 is a spring air rifle with a side cocking lever and a folding stock to boot. The loading port is easy to access and the lever has a anti-bear trap mechanism to spare your fingers from being squashed. For such a small air gun it is rather heavy at about 7.0 LBS.

Q: How much did your first B3 airgun cost?

A: I saw my first B3 advertised in an American Rifleman ad in about 1986. It was being sold by a company called Compasseco that I would come to know much better in the future. I think the price was $54.50, plus shipping. I bought one, more to see what a communist Chinese airgun looked like than anything.

Q: What was the price of a B-3 in 1986?

A: Aquick check of the CPI Inflation Calculator tells me that $54. 50 in 1986 would be adjusted to $123. 26 today. Pyramyd Air currently has six different new (not refurbs) wood stocked spring piston air rifles for less than amount. I presume some of those are superior in some ways to the vintage B-3 when it was new.
