BSA Ultra .22 S/S. Fantastic rifle, that was about 5 years ago. I've had a number of BSA's since than. I currently have a Tench regged, BSA Ultra.177 M/S, with a Bushnell Legend scope on top. Another fantastic rifle.

Mine was a Mk 1 Mercury in .22.  I've never been able to shoot as well with any other springer.

My current gun, super ten mk3 carbine in .22

Wouldn't swap for anything at the moment. Totally smitten, think she's a keeper! /kiss heart121/

Being a newbie to airgunning (only a little over a year now) my first BSA was/is my XL Lightning TAC in .22.  So far it has been a learning experience ...a bit like one of your first girl friends....but positive overall.  It will most likely stay in the gun cabinet as my go to hunter as it is very well suited for that job.

The Mk3 Mercury, which I currently own. Not used it much, usually take one of the other rifles to the club, but it seems to produce a reasonable group at about 20m in the back garden May take it on the range at the weekend !

First gun was the current one I have.

Lightning .22 with custom trigger and stock. Bought from a neigbour last year for £60.  /coooollll/

I have since then had to get the barrel lock fixed and the original spring broke. I now have an Ox Spring. Tested 3 nights ago at 11.75ftlbs with Napier Power Hunters 15.42gr. /smile/

My first bsa was a superstar last year from a guy at work. Paid £80 for it, resprung and sealed it and its a lovely rifle. Second was a bsa cadet major cc serial number that I bought last saturday also for £80. The guy had resprung and sealed it and I was most impressed with it. He did a really good job on it , the stock is amazing. I have 4 weihrauchs but I really have a soft spot for the cadet. I didnt expect a gun of that age to shoot so well.
