“great accurate gun”

Written on: 17/09/2011

I recently bought a second hand bsa lightning for £200 after doing much research on it. I have owned a number of spring air rifles including a hw97, crosman phantom and a modified Webley tracker. With the exeption of the weihrauch as that cost £100 more than the bsa, the lightning is by far the best. It gets 1cm groupings at 25 yards! Also, the woodwork and build quality matches the hw97 as I chose to buy the old model made in england. It's very light and the carbined barrel makes it easy to move around. When you break the barrel you can feel the quality and when you shoot it you get little recoil. The most amazing thing about it is that it is a much more pleasant gun to use than all others I have used. If you have seen any bad reviews on this gun and they are deterring you from buying one don't worry because as long as you buy one made in the UK then you won't regret it.

Hi..I have also recently bought a second hand .22 lightning and waiting for its deliver this week.Having found these reviews after buying it has opened my eyes a lot more on the spec of the rifle and you do get some bad opinions always, sometimes its the factory building of it to handling and carriage .Their was a person that i was reading about could not get his lightning to stay zeroed so it was shooting out of aim terrible ,he try and checked all sorts ,check barrel ,checked scope creep, checked fitting screws .And after a long time the rifle was stripped down and it was found that it had a broken spring guilde tube..It was changed and was spot on ,but he curse this model to bits. The main thing i are just wanting to no are all lightnings made in the Uk. And the XL's models the GAMO range then..And what pellets People find best for their shooting.I'm looking for removing rabbits and vermin. I'm not looking to be shooting at 50mts unless it his the right day and everything his spot on well tested at that range...Thanks for any help new lightning bsa, owner shortly....
