It's funny. My first introduction to this great hobby was Chinese springers like the B-3 and other repops of German guns. They are wood and steel. Heavy as a tank.  The cult following is partly because they are so simple that you can modify them in lots of ways. Mine are nearly all gone now. Found I don't care for springers. The lone exception is a QB 57 I've grown to love. $65 gets you alot of gun, with that one.
Now I'm all about vintage American airguns. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

QB 78 is the only Chinese gun I have left, it was so nice to be able to re-seal the thing or repair it, without any special tools, voodoo magic, or send it t a "guru" for $100. Simple design copied from a Crossman 160. Parts and upgrades are cheap also, probably keep it for a long time, it's really accurate as well. I have some vintage Crossman's on my list (400 repeater, 160, 140 and maybe a 101).

...the fuse...
Was your Chinese B-3 the one that "LASTWORLD" calls the "Defender Extreme  B-3" ?
22 cal, 850 ft/sec ???
I bought one off Amazon seveal years ago for less than $50...I agree, it's built like a tank, and weighs about that much !!!

The b-3's I had were garden variety .177. They shot at about 650 fps after a lube tune. I bought a few .22 under lever rifles as well. They could do 550 fps. 850 fps in .22 is way hot for a cheap Chinese springer unless you are shooting ultra light pellets or have done some kind of modding. The Chinese can and do make far better guns but you pay for them and it isn't under $150. You can still pick up a basic B-3 from a wholesale seller for less than $30. That's where I got mine. Amazon sellers just mark them up. 
I highly recommend the QB-57. Lots of fun for less than $70.
