What can I say that most of the other reviews have not said already, the BSA Lightning XL is the best Springer I have ever had, and believe me I have had a few. Accuracy, power, weight and reliability, all I can say is brilliant, I have had my Lightning for about 3 months, got the .177 for range, and boy has it got range, recently head shot a rabbit at 55 yards,all I would say is choose your scope wisely, I have a Simmons Whitetail Classic 1.5 x 20 on my Lightning and it suits the gun perfectly. I am constantly surprised by this gun, as I have already said I have had numerous Springer's over the years from Wheirach, Feinwerkbau and Air arms, and would choose the Lightning every time, this is the ideal Springer in my opinion and I am a serious Hunter and have been for 25 years.
Also have a BSA R10 MK2, another excellent gun, would choose BSA guns over most nowadays, well done BSA, keep up the good work
