“Classic are best ”

Written on: 02/06/2014

I have just bought a mk 1 bsa airsporter ,no cracks in fact other than a few scratches on the stock is in perfect condition and it automatically opens the pellet chamber for you . Lovely solid feel and looks nice with the styling . I own a mk 2 as well ,and found a place where you can buy these classic air guns for the right price ,as private sellers want silly money . I paid £90 for mk1 and £120 for mk 2 so very happy . My whole collection is below ,I have been collecting now for one month… Read Full Review

“Simply the best ”

Written on: 22/05/2012

My Airsporter S Mk1 is an amazing air rifle, extremely accurate with the correct ammo, easy to use and I love it ! I did buy mine in 1981 ... still going very very strong with no additions (except a 6 x 40 Hawke)… Read Full Review

You did say ". . .accurate with the correct ammo, . . . " What is the correct ammo?
I have MKVI and I would like to test its accuracy.

Hi, Iv'ejust fitted a bespoke rail to a very old airsporter so it could have a scope fitted. tried sighting in and getting good groups to no availe.
didn't realise that the early ones where barrelled for 5.6mm pellets and most of the modern ones are 5.5mm. when i aquired some wasp no2 by bisley 5.6mm it no wworks fine with good groups. a fine old rifle back to doing what it does best .

Written on: 03/12/2010

My dad got our BSA Airsporter for Christmas when I was about 14-15 (obviously I only only used under supervision). I'm 33 now, and don't really use it as I have a family of my own. We bought it 3rd hand from a elderly gent who bought it 2nd hand back in 1972!!! It had the top of the range scopes at the time, how much is it worth now? It's in very good condition. I don't really want to part with it but I could do with the money at this time of year. I'm unsure where the best place to sell it… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2010 by Crowey14 (2 reviews written)

Got this gun second hand, must be older than my dad! and its still a realy powerul and accurate rifle, i've heard that its a classic and its definately good fun as well as reliable, if you can get hold of one it will be well worth it! Only thing wrong with it is that maybe its a bit loud and a tad heavy but the wieght makes it have very little recoil. Solid, Dependable and i love it… Read Full Review

Hi nice informative review, interesting it is so easy to strip/rebuild but is the spring under pressure ie does it come flying out with force?
<br/>I recently got an Airsporter mk7 carbine, titan spring etc.
<br/>Does'nt need a rebuild but nice to know how, I've not yet stripped a air rifle because of the spring tension story's.

Written on: 17/01/2009 by Kimm742 (60 reviews written)

A classic gun. I've had this one for 29 (yes, 29) years and it still performs well. Accuracy never an issue, unfussy about pellets (shooting or loading), never been touched apart from standard lubrication and barrel-cleaning. Easy to cock, and lovely trigger-pull. Common sense says it's not putting out 12ft/lbs any more, but it still takes out crows, pigeons and rabbits as well as it ever did. There was always a bit of spring "boing", but it's part of the gun's character. Only noticeable to the… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2008

The BSA Airsporter, a classic design the original Mk1 set the standard, the later Marks lost a little bit of the look with the loss of the tapered barrel, the blued steel finish was always to a high standard, the original early woodwork had style which was lost by the third incarnation with the Mk3 that was built down to a cost. The Mk6 was solid and accurate, the next development being the ' Airsporter S ', this improved the woodwork but made the breach block clumsy, the limited edition… Read Full Review
