Well made, great value for money and not bad looking.
Plastic trigger and fore sight kicks scopes off.
The BSA Supersport is a great little gun. I first bought one back in the early 80s and now have acquired another .22, although it needed a new piston head and breech seal and a guy from the Longford range did it for a very reasonable price.
With the right pellets, they are devastatingly accurate and deliver more than enough power to dispatch small game at useful ranges, between 25 and 40 yds. The gun I have now is 13 years old and is still knocking rabbits over at 35 yds +.
The only down side is the scope rails are not deep enough and tend to throw scopes off unless you have one fitted with the Dampamount scope rail which seems to cure the problem and I would agree a gas ram seems to tame it a bit and quieten it down as well.
