I am not an expert and do not know much about this piece.  It was my uncle's and he died and my aunt wants to just sell a lot of this stuff.  This is what I found from looking around the internet:

MODEL R1CARBINE - .177 cal., 19.3 in. barrel, blue finish, 1000/610 FPS, new design using some Weihrauch Model HW 35 parts with design changes to greatly increase power, speed, cocking ease and efficiency, beech Monte Carlo stock, hand cut checkered pistol grip with palm swell and grip cap, forearm extends to front end of barrel block, rubber buttplate with molded BEEMAN lettering, solid steel receiver cap, 14.3 in. LOP, 45.2 in. OAL, 8.5 lbs. Mfg. in Germany 1981 to date.

This is the first spring piston airgun to reach 1000 FPS MV and first to extend forearm to cover barrel base block. Designed by Robert Beeman, stock design by Robert Beeman and Gary Goudy; engineered by H.W. Weihrauch. Predecessor of Weihrauch HW 80 and considered as first successful start of adult airgun market in USA. Ref: Gaylord, 1995, The Beeman R1.

Please examine pictures carefully.
