BSA Springer tunes
« on: August 17, 2017, 08:14:02 PM »

Hey everyone,

Is there a `BSA tuning guru` out there?

Just wondered what gets done to smooth things out, and who ya get to do it?

Don't yet own a BSA springer, but I like the look of the lightning, and if I end up with one, i'd like it to be smoooooth.

Cheers & ATB

I have tuned Lightnings before now. While they are a basic gun there isn't a lot can be done with the trigger, it will never be a Weihrauch Rekord, but there is a trigger tuning thread on here. As for tuning the rest of the gun there are various tuning kits I have fitted for customers in the past and all have given acceptable results smoothing the recoil but you must bear in mind this is a lightweight "snappy" gun in the first place, there will always be some perceived recoil whatever tuning kit is fitted even if the power is kept right down to 10FtLb.

OK thanks Tom,

Seems to be no end of stuff (and no end of tuners) that can be done to HW and AA springers, just wondered why I hadn't heard of much going on with BSA models.
