Accurate, Full unFAC power (below 12ft/lbs), light (in carbine).
Inevitable recoil because of spring, quite loud but made quieter with silencer.
In this review I am referring to the BSA Supersport carbine version. I bought the BSA Supersport because it was reasonably priced, full power, and the comments about this gun are all good.
I can only add to this praise as this gun is lightweight, (if you get the carbine which I highly recommend for an extra £20) has an adaptor for the silencer, is very well made, and is accurate to 1 inch at 35 yards with practice using 10 shot groupings.
This gun is good for hunting although I do not recommend the silencer without also purchasing a gas-ram as the action makes the most noise.
It can easily dispatch squirrels (tree rats for you americans) feral pigeons, wood pigeons, rabbits, crows, and rats presumably although I have never shot one.
I recommend using accupell with this gun as it is suitably accurate although I have not tried using many other ammo types.
I also recommend buying this gun in .177 because although .22 is famed to be better for hunting because it tranfers more energy to the quarry the .177 has better penetration and will kill anything that th .22 can with 12ft/lbs and is also easier to use as it has a better pellet trajectory (it does not fly in a curve as th .22 does) this means aiming at distances is made easier.
