Accurate, Excellent Quality, Reliable, sturdily built.
Slightly stiff safety mechanism.
I have had my .177 BSA Supersport for some years now and have done very well with it. I bought it for £250 including a scope and a tin of Eley Wasp.
Upon firing it I did notice that the recoil was quite substantial but this can be easily fixed by fitting a gas ram (which I have and well recommend). The trigger pull is adjustable 2 stage and is factory set to be quite stiff, so there may be some work needed there.
I have had many a rabbit with my trusty BSA up to about 45yrds, mine is the standard model so pops out at just under the 12ft pounds mark, but it is more than up to the job of humanley dispatching medium sized quarry at around the 35-40 yrds mark, im sure it could strike further than that but i have not attempted this.
I firmly beleive the best ammo for this gun is the Accupell .177, it is all I ever use and I very rarely miss.
All in all the BSA Supersport is a fantastic, reliable hard working gun that will not break into the trust fund and is up to just about all the jobs you will need it for.
