I wouldn’t really consider this a weapon (I guess you could kill mice, sparrows and other micro game with it, lol) but anyway;

How are the Markman BB guns, they seem like a real bargain and appear to be the only pump action bb guns marketed right now.

Are they any good or will they just fall apart?
and how's the bb feeding system?

do you mean the Marksman .'45'? it's not really a pump,more of a single stroke spring piston design,purposely built to be low powered as a sort of indoor/outdoor gallery gun,that shoots proprietary darts,.177 pellets or standard BB's.

I've had a Marksman 1010 BB spring pistol for some time.... Almost 20 years now.

It works as well/poorly as it ever did.... BB feed is dependant on the angle the gun is held at, must be muzzle up while cocking. As a weapon, much better to use it as a club than a gun. It will not break skin point-blank.

I prefer springpiston air guns to multi-pump pneumatics or single stroke pneumatics. There is a plethora of good spring piston rifle manufacturers out there. Full power in one stroke. Quieter than the pneumatic guns (PCP and single or multi-strokes or CO2...).

I've taken game from English Sparrows up to porcupine with my .177 Diana (RWS) 34. Including many hare and dozens of squirrel.

There are virtually no air pistols with enough power to humanely dispatch any game.

There are some great airgun fora out there, including "gateway to airguns". They would certainly be able to steer you in the right direction!

There are virtually no air pistols with enough power to humanely dispatch any game. Well, I have an old Beeman / Webly Tempest spring-piston in .22 cal that might argue with you about that.
It will put a pointed pellet clear through a rabbits head as far as I can hit them. (Which isn't very far, I might add!)

Sorry I forgot to specify BB rifle, I forgot they make pistols aswell.

2020 and 2030


I just want a plinker, I don’t need to kill anything with it (I already have pellet guns for that).

I already have a daisy, and I’m thinking since the 2020 and 2030 are single stroke pumps maybe I can shoot them faster, and it says it has a “positive feed 20 shot magazine” which sounds interesting since about 1 out of every 10 or so shots with the Daisy a bb doesn’t get loaded.
