“Bsa Supesport GRT”

Written on: 12/10/2012 by cptman (39 reviews written)

Just acquired the latest version of this rifle that now features a gas ram instead of a spring. It's very good and has a lot less recoil than the old spring version, the stock has been improved and has nice checkering. Bsa say they have improved the trigger but Icahn say I can tell the difference other than its now plastic!! The other noticeable thing about it is that it's very loud. I have a gas ram theoben for long range shooting but this is ideal for close range as it has Tru-glo open… Read Full Review

I like my BSA I can hit Bird in the eye with it. I use's a simon's 22 mag 4x scope on it. I had a hard time finding a Airrifle rated scope for it when I got this rifle in the 90's as alot of people had not heard of reverse recoil in the State's at that time' as this scope held up I tried another scope and broke it in about 10 shot's lesson learned. I guess were luck here as we get the full powered gun's in the State's If I do a body shot on a Black Bird it will go in one side and out the other… Read Full Review

I do not own this rifle, a friend of mine does (user: Cognition) but I shoot with it often. I'd like to go into more detail with some of the points mentioned in Cognition's earlier review.

The checkering was indeed added at a later date, so most of the pictures of this rifle on the internet are not up to date - it actually looks slightly better than the picture! As far as more important factors are concerned it's very accurate especially with a scope (I've shot it a few hours ago with an "AGS… Read Full Review

I was given the carbine version of the BSA Supersport in .22 about four years ago now. back then it was the perfect size for me, i spent every waking moment shooting it and put around 10000 pellets through the barrel in three years.

However, when i reached 15 i received a shotgun so naturally my air rifle was put away and forgot about for some time.

Written on: 13/04/2007

Actually, I ordered a BSA Supersport air rifle a few weeks ago, and mine came with chequering. This surprised me slightly, so I contacted BSA themselves, and, apparently, the chequering is a new improvement to the Supersport that brings it up-to-date, and gives it a touch of class.

After putting a lot of time into researching which air rifle I should get as my first, I came to the drawn conclusion of the BSA Supersport - only just winning over the Weihrauch HW99s and Webley Xocet XS (which I plan to buy a bit later when I get more money).

Stripping the box away to get the gun out as fast as possible, I was not disappointed. The Supersport is a good looker; compact, with a nice finish to the beech stock. Taking it out of the box and holding it in my hands, I was… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/09/2006 by Blackjackblue (3 reviews written)

I have just purchased this BSA SuperSport .22 with a BSA 22 special scope as a package for £180. I compared it to a few other rifles in the same price range like the Remington, Webley and a 2nd hand HK57, and I have to say this won hands down. I have a Logun Solo and an Airarms s400, and the build quality feels as good for a third of the money.
It is deadly accurate having taken out 3 rabbits in one hour and all one shot kills at approx 25-30 yds.

Yes, Yes Yes!! The BSA SuperSport .22 is a great springer! I have had mine for 6 years now, along with other 12lb springers. This gun wins hands down for shooting comfort, as it's lightweight, well balanced and easy to break.
<br>
<br/>I have shot hundreds, yes hundreds of vermin with my SuperSport. It takes them out with no problem!
<br>
<br/>I really do recommend this gun for a quality, powerful gun at a reasonable price. Buy one, you will not be disappointed.

BSA SuperSport .22: I recently had a HW97k & traded it in because it was just too "overkill" for the backyard.
Not long passed & i had to get hold of another rifle for some shooting. The BSA Supersport was at a cheap price at a gun shop due to its condition. The woodwork was a bit tatty especially where the rubber recoil pad joins the butt. I guess its been stood in a damp place & the damp has got under the enamel. The metalwork in comparison was slightly better .. apart from the barrel being… Read Full Review

I bought my BSA Supersport .22 about 2 weeks ago for £130, this is my first gun and as I have a large build I decided to get a proper full power weapon rather than a junior one. The gun is very light and I found it quite hard to master with my scope (ags elite tactical 3-9x40). The recoil is quite Substantial. The action is very good and is easy to cock without breaking over the knee. Overall it is a very well made rifle. The iron sights are a little flimsy, and would only be effective to about… Read Full Review

I've had a BSA SuperSport .22 for over 10 years. It still has good power (ME of 14+ fps) and is easy to shoot accurately. It is primarily a field air gun and its light weight lends itself well to this use. Its shooting behavior is very pleasant for a Springer of its power and weight. Although the trigger is not bad, it lacks crispness. Perhaps this has been improved upon in newer models. For the price, I think the SS is difficult to beat… Read Full Review

I have had the BSA SuperSport .22 rifle for 3 weeks. Everytime I get within range of a rabbit it has resulted in a kill (I try to stalk to within 30 metres, 25 if possible). Accupell seem the best ammo wise. I have noticed comments concerning recoil but would say that a firm but forgiving grip and practice is all that is needed. Anyway I do not think the recoil is excessive. The only downer is the plastic sights,(I use a scope) but they do cheapen the look of the rifle, but to be honest it was… Read Full Review

Having purchased a second-hand super sport some time ago, I fitted it with a Theoben gas ram making it an unbeatable sporting air rifle on a par with the overpriced and overweight fenman, also with no fancy walnut stock to damage whilst in the field. A true out n out sporting gun without the bloated price tag that comes with many of today’s rifles

Personally, I have found Eley Wasp produces the goods.
<br>I have tried many different makes & brands, but always returned to Wasp
<br>(better the devil you know) ;-)
<br>
<br>I have even sampled them in .177, but it produces too much penetration, and not enough stopping power
<br>i.e. it goes straight through instead of stopping it dead (which is needed for feathered quarry, but not for furred)
<br>
<br>If you plump for a .22,
<br>5.6mm (standard .22 size) are tight in the breach and cause loss in accuracy, power & range.
<br>So use 5.5mm, to retain maximum accuracy, power & range.
<br>
<br>Hope this helps

Toastandmarmiteuk's Response to porcupine's Review

Written on: 15/03/2004

Hiya, the slotted dowel means you must buy some dowel, or an old brush handle works well. Next you must cut a slotabout 1.5 cm and about 1 inch deep in the end of the dowel using either a hack saw or coping saw. This will allow you to push it into the cylinder once the protective cap is removed. You push hard and it takes the pressure of the spring allowing you to remove the thick metal pin that holds the spring in place. The slot in the dowel is there so it can be pushed over the pin! Take care when removing the spring as this is under tension meaning it could come out very quickly. Hope this is helpful. all the best Tom

I purchased the BSA SuperSport .22 at christmas for about £120, which was a fairly low price for an air rifle. It is perfect for plinking and shooting pigeons, squirrels, rabbits etc up to a maximum of about 35 / 40 yards. It is very light so carrying it around fields is not a problem. There is relatively little kickback, about the same as a .22 rimfire. The iron sights supplied with it are disappointing however; they are plastic and not very accurate and stable when tuned.

This is my first air gun, I am extremley satisfied with it, I have fitted a 3-9x42AO scope on it and it is proving to be very accurate. If you are accurate enough it is a great hunting rifle and can drop rabbits at 30yards easily. Its light to carry about and my 10 year old daughter can fire it easily, though not cock it. Its a noisy rifle for garden shooting if you have neighbours, but its a springer so that is to be expected, it also carries a fair bit of recoil. I have had nothing but fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2003

Alright mate. when you bought your rifle the person who owned it before probably had a fair few shots out of it. this has made the spring weak which is why it wont go through that bottle. you can buy replacement springs from 'OX' which will solve your problem and cost you from $10-$20, but i would recommend fitting a theoben gas ram which increases the power significantly and reduces recoil. this would make your rifle an all round better gun but unfortunately costs between $70 and $90. If youve got any queries, feel free to email me on homegrownhash@hotmail.com . Id like to know more about this barrel extension. Cheers.

Switch, I see you picked the supersport over the cometa 300 in the end. What made you buy the supersport?

Use ELEY WASP ammunition, it has a purple tin and is about £4 for 500, i managed to shoot through a full tin of beans with this ammo and my friend used supa-point pellets and it got stuck half way.

“I have purchased 11 airguns that fall in the price...”

Written on: 13/04/2003 by CVanMeter. (1 review written)

I have purchased 11 airguns that fall in the price point of the BSA Supersport including models from RWS, Beeman, Gamo as well as several Chinese Clones of these makes. I would say the BSA would come out the winner in regards to quality of construction beauty of grain in the stock and it's finish. The Chrony has it spitting out Crosman Premier Light pellets at 890 fps which is very respectible. Accuracy of this gun will make up for the few fps it comes short of a few of it's competitors.

My .22 version seems to like Crosman Premiers the best from the dozen or so different pellets I have tried in it. I just recently purchased some of the JSB Exact pellets and will try and see how they work. Very simular in design as the Crosmans so would think the will group well. You may want to pick up a Sampler such as Straight Shooters sell. That gives you a handful of some 6 different pellets to try without having to go buy 6 complete tins so a good savings.

Written on: 06/01/2003 by joe. (1 review written)

This beast of a gun is about the best value for money gun you will find on the market, the lowest priced one out there is £109, outstanding. The first thing to do with this gun is put an ox mainspring(no.1) in it and dispose of the over-oiled standard bsa spring. This will crank it up to around 17-18f/p(f.a.c needed of course!) Once you have it powered-up, slap a decent set of scopes/mounts on it, be sure to put AIR RIFLE scopes on(see dealer), try bsa's own range of scopes" deerhunter, catseye… Read Full Review

I owned a BSA supersport up until last year when I finally gave up on having to repeatedly buying new springs. And I hate to sound childish but I also got fed up of people at my local gun club commenting on the guns appearance.

I have over a dozen springers that fall in this same price point including RWS, Beeman as well as some Chinese clones, and the BSA takes the cake for overall quality of construction, light and powerful. I sent one off to David Spade at Airgunwerks to have a gas ram installed and trigger job and now it holds it's own with guns I have double the money invested in...

Well I can say that the standard spring BSA use is a little poor but fitting a good quality spring like Titan etc will make the rifle shoot very well and last for years. Stay away from OX. For the money they are one of the best you can get, with lots of upgrades available.

I didn't say that the spring broke..... although I also didn't say what did happen to it, so I'll tell you now. The spring weakened a lot quicker than I would have liked which obviously causes lowered power in shots which leads to declined pellet speed and that could cause pellets to stray off course.

I purchased a BSA Supersport air rifle around three years ago and teamed it up with a RWS 4*12-42 PA scope. In the time I have owned it I have shot literally hundreds of rabbits and wood pigeon.
This gun is reliabe and fires dead on the legal limit, which is perefect for dealing with most local vermin. My Supersport fired consistantly at 12f/lbs for the first two years I owned it. However in recent times due to a decrease in power through being overused I decided to make some modifications… Read Full Review

I would have to agree that your claims of kill distance is pretty hard to believe as the SuperSport just doesn't have that kind of power. Even those with High Powered PCP Guns or the most powerfull of Spring Piston airguns rarely get to claim those kinds of shots. To say the BSA SuperSport is "the best airgun in the world" could only be said by someone with limited use of what else is out there. Granted I would agree it is the "best airgun in the world" at it's price range.

It has a nice mounting for tele scopes and copes with my simmons 3-9-50 deerfields with little effort. The stock is finished well and gives a nice eye position when using telescopic sights.

I noticed you say you wouldn't recommend this rifle for the less-than-full-sized person due to recoil. I'm a smaller guy and otherwise this looks like the perfect starter air rifle for vermin control. What would you recommend with less recoil in a similar price for killing rats?

If you think the recoil from your supersport is a problem then I should like to suggest that replacing your mainspring with a theoben gas ram can make a considerable differance to your gun. The gas ram reduces the recoil to such an extent that the gun is almost as lifeless and quiet as a precharged rifle. It is my view that springs are unreliable and they also make the guns velocity inconsistent in terms of feet per second, which can prove vital when you have vermin in your sights.

The fact that this is a spring gun dictates that the shooter know how to shoot one. DON'T GRIP THE GUN!! Let it rest ON your hands, and bounce in your hands when you squeeze off the shot. Any attempt to hold the gun still will cause problems.
