« on: November 23, 2016, 09:03:42 AM »

Two part question really.
What is/was the best springer
And what was/is the pcp bda ever made.
This has to be prior tuning  and after tuning had happened.

Meteor (all Brummie made models) and Super10.
Why the Meteor? Because it probably introduced more people to shooting than any other gun over the decades of production. No point tuning them, let them run in, replace seals, buffer washer fit new BSA spring and re-lube and the gun is good for another 3-5 years at 8-9 FtLb. Tuning them for more power just makes them wear out quicker or vibrate themselves to pieces.
Super10's were good as standard and can be made to compete with any modern regulated gun with careful tuning, add a DrBob quickfill kit and it's the best gun ever made in my opinion. Some people complain about weight and size, if it's a problem then buy an Ultra and fit a HuMa or Tench reg.

Well, it looks like I need a Dr Bob quick fill for my S10. lol
.
for me it has to be the S10. I'm not a big built man, 5-10, 12 stone, but its more than manageable, and its very unique action block makes it stand out.

The R10's look amazing in walnut, but the housing is just about the same as the ultra/scorpion - all impressive but not a S10.

Springer for me has to be the Superstar, purely because of the Rotary breach, wish id never let mine go..... like a fool I followed the HW hype and got an HW80 - pile of poo.
when I stripped it there was rust on the Spring guide tube / piston / spring. God the burrs on the spring guide tube were so share you could of shaved with it.
stripped it, degreased it, replace spring guide with a black nylon one I machined up in the toolroom after work. then flogged it on, as I still had the poor build quality stuck in my head.
I've never picked up or looked at a HW since, nor will I.
.
Still got my first BSA, a lovely little Merlin in .177 that little gun has done many a rat and close quarter rabbit as a young lad, only problem being grown up is you cant get you head down low enough to use the open sights properly, but I still try.....

take care
Nigel
