Recently purchased as a 'wreck', my Mk5 Meteor has now been totally rebuilt and refurbished using my own fair hands. It looks and shoots like a new gun, which is not bad considering that its well over 30yrs old! Its a fairly light rifle, which is easy to carry, handle and shoot. Its not a 'full power' gun, Meteors of this era typically produced in the range of 8-9ft.lbs when they were new. There was no 12ft.lb legal limit back in the days of this rifles youth! After the rebuild my gun produces… Read Full Review

In my air gunning career I have owned 2 Meteors.
The first I bought in 1970 in .22" calibre and I used this gun for hunting and plinking till 1994. I only changed the spring once in this time. I had knocked the sights about in use and ended up putting a 4X32 scope on top which when the crosshairs broke I adapted by putting a shaped staple inside to make a single pointed post..it was superb.
Once zeroed I never changed the sight in 14 years and found the accuracy consistent to the end.
The .22… Read Full Review

I've just ordered one to control the birds in the wife's garden. Have been using my Savage .22 but worried about killing something, like, 2Km away. I've been reading the reviews and now I'm even more worried that Im gonna lose the ability to spell once it arrives… Read Full Review

I have this gun, it is extremely accurate and I can shoot small sticks in half at 15 metres easily, it is also extremely light weight which helps the accuracy when standing up. The power is perfectly good for most pest control. As it is able to shoot straight through a squirrel at 15m and can kill rabbits further out than that… Read Full Review

i have a bsa meteor mk 1 and im getting to the stage now that i think the gun has had it. Mainly because it's not powerful enough to shoot rabbits anymore as what it used to be. i have seen the Ox - Mainspring Red No 2 BSA Meteor for £15 pound and a new breach seal, if i was to purchase these items would they make a better impact on the air rifel power wise. or is there any other springs which are more powerful which would fit in my bsa meteor mk1,could this increase my fps and lbs and also do… Read Full Review

I had been made redundant some time ago, so my £600 air rifle had to go. Some weeks latter missing my gun, I came across an old BSA Meteor for sale in a second hand shop. I thought it was a toy but just wanted a gun. I took it home and in my back garden sighted it up. There had been a bit of a breas about at the time, so the bad shooting I got, I put down to gun and not the wind. Gun got put away in cupboard.
Some weeks latter a mate turnd up and asked me to sight his new gun for him I did so… Read Full Review

I bought this rifle a while ago, as soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be great. The wood, finish, and general build are superb. It looks lovely.
I used RWS Superdomes (These are 100% the pellets for this gun) I'm drilling a hole at 15m. At 30yrds, this rifle still performs, it's highly accurate, and very pleasing to fire. The recoil is pretty intense, maybe this will lead some to be less accute with this gun, but it's quite satisfying to be honest. The trigger could have done with being… Read Full Review

You know, ever since owning my very first BSA Meteor, it's been, well, if you could fall in love with an inanimate object then I would have to say in the airgun world, I would be in love with this little beauty.
It doesn't have the power of the hoards of 1000 fps air rifles available today. It doesn't have sensational styling, moulded stocks, or the dayglow sights, and the raised cheekpiece on the stock is not so great looking compared to some. As a matter of fact it looks rather like a "Plain… Read Full Review

I agree totally that the BSA Meteor is a brilliant first rifle. I got my .177 for my 14th birthday 46 years ago. I've used and abused it but it's been nothing but pure joy for myself and for my sons. Sadly times have changed and opportunities to use the gun are not what they were. I never got on to well with the telescopic sight, preferring to use the sight on the gun. In my day I was a crack shot taking on everything from match heads to edges of cardboard, hanging my head in shame at the… Read Full Review
