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.
