Depends on the roll the rifles applying for. Get something that does whatever the Ultra doesn't, imo.

Imo go with an Ultra, maybe a second hand tuned one, just avoid the XL. With a half decent scope you'll still have change for some quality mods / fettling. From what I've read they are a great platform for hunting and HFT, very pointable/agile and half a kilo lighter than the R10 to start with.

Hi manor2025

Thanks for the reply, i am deffo interested in HFT and i was originally sold on the Goldstar se but like i said, i havent seen many reviews on them and don't know anyone who owns one.
i want to get a multishot for the range but am i right in saying the HFT has to be single shot?

Can anyone else +1 for the Goldstar?
does anyone have any experience with the R10 se?

Hi there.  Based on my experience, firstly if you are thinking of getting into hft then do it you wont regret it. I admit I was bit sure about it until I joined a club a couple of years ago.  Second if hft is on the cards go 177 as it is easier out at longer ranges and seems to be the hft norm.  Third if you really are intrestedbin hft ho goldstar I have bit used a r10 but have had a goldstar a few months, the ability to adjust and fit the stock to you and your style will really help you out.  Also you can still hunt with it as well.

Good Evening all!  :sign0085: :sign0085: :sign0085:

After endless hours of research and youtubing i went into my local gun shop to get a feel for the few rifles on my short list.
I came out the shop no better off than when i went in.

I was pretty sold on the BSA Goldstar SE especially in that gorgeous black pepper laminate but after the lad behind the counter was more interested in showing me the BSA R10 SE i was then even more unsure!

I wont say which shop it is, but they have been known for not being very honest..

Im a bit of a youtube freak and like to see how the rifle performs which usually helps me make up my mind, but with the lack of Goldstar reviews its made it very difficult for me.

I understand the older R10's had a lot of issues which i gather are mostly all ironed out now?

95% of my shooting is targets, and im looking into getting into HFT. I do still have a love for hunting but find myself at the range more.

I have around £1000 to spend and wanted to know how the Goldstar se and R10 se compared in performance.

Even though i have been a loyal BSA customer for 20 years i am happy to try daystate or any others within the price range.

And before i start an CAL argument, does anyone recommend 177 over .22 as i have only ever had .22, i understand the trajectory etc but i have also heard that the heavier .22 pellet will continue its power down range where as the lighter 177 will lose its energy quicker. not sure how that makes sense to me though as i thought 177 was better for long range? also does the lighter 177 get effected more by the wind than the .22?

my understanding below
Lighter pellet - easier for the wind to push???
Larger pellet - more surface area for the wind to get hold of???

Please guys! help me make up my mind!

There doesn't appear to be anything on BSA's website but in all honesty I wouldn't expect BSA would launch anything that would approach the quality of a PeliCase.

I believe that B.S.A. are now selling a  "quality" hard case,I have been unable to find anyone who can verify this. Perhaps someone on this website can help me,if you know anything about this hard case, please can you give me all the details.
I want to be able to transport my B.S.A. Goldstar,in a manner which befits the amount of money I have spent having this air rifle tuned, and various stainless steel parts fitted to make this air rifle better than the standard model. Come on guys please help, if you can, thank's in anticipation, (  shy talk ).    :c017:

OK already own an Ultra and have been looking forward to getting a R10 to keep it company, finally saved enough pennies to buy one when I saw the Ultra Cayanne and now I can't choose lol Not a chance of me selling the much loved Ultra I already own so does it make sense buying another which would probably mean I'd still be lusting for the R10, also got to consider the wrath of my better half seeing another gun arrive and then listening to me extolling the specs of another lol, help !!

Thanks Tom, that was good information. I do have one gamo springer with CDT trigger blade and it is still not good IMO. As far as the linkage goes you can use an almost straight 4mm bar in non SE BSAs (as found in Huub Vikings), that does not bend as the forces needed are quite small in smallbore guns. Not as good as a trigger without the linkage but quite acceptable.
