XS B-18/19

Last week I received 2 Xiscos XS-B-19 air rifles, one in .177 cal. and another in .22 cal. These models are the improved Xisco's version of the XS-18. This XS model is a Chinese clone of the Gamo 220. The new model version from Crosman, the Quest 1000 comes with optic sights plus a Crosman warranty. Both models come with synthetic  piston seals.


My cousin brought over his Gamo 220 and I took both models apart and found the inside guts to be same in both models. We tested the Gamo and the XS B-19 in .177 cal. side to side. We chronyed both air guns and found that the Gamo 220 averaged 845 fps and the XS B-19 averaged 854 fps using Crosman pointed pellets (7.9 gr.).


Later on I decided to test the XS B-19 in .22 cal. using Crosman Pointed pellets (14.3 gr.) on my chrony, the XS B-19 in .22 cal. averaged 700 fps. I then decided to try one more test, I took a piece of 3/4 inch thick Cider plywood and shot at it at a distance of 6 feet, the pellet went right thru the plywood and hit the cement wall behind. I found the pellet and upon examining it I found that the pellet (Crosman Pointed) was completely flattened out, now that is what I call real impact power.


Due to the hard shooting impacts of this air gun, stock screws did come loose fast from the air gun's vibrations. I fixed this by using blue loctite on the screws.

In my testing I found this air gun to be very light weight and comfortable to shoot. The cocking action is very easy/smooth and the air gun is very accurate. Just like the Gamo 220, I did find the trigger pull to be a little long on the XS B-19, but after a while I got used to it and it was no problem since the trigger's action is smooth.

We also found that the Monte Carlos type stock the XS B-19 comes with to be more handsome than the Gamo 220 stock.

All in all we did find the XS-19 to be a bargain for the price and we both agreed that the light weight XS-19 in .22 cal. would make a great hunting air gun. To get your B-19/Quest 1000, click on the banner below.
