“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

Written on: 03/11/2008 by gunpug (6 reviews written)

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

This is a powerful and accurate rifle, the only downside is that there is too much recoil and this knocks the scope off point unless you constantly tighten the mounts. An overall good rifle though… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2007 by Josso (10 reviews written)

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

Written on: 09/04/2007 by Rob Cooke (1 review written)

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.

A month ago i got out my air rifle in the first time in over a year to discover that it was still perfectly zeroed in, the power was still well… Read Full Review

Cognition's Response to Rob Cooke's Review

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.

Written on: 06/04/2007 by Cognition (90 reviews written)

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

“I have just purchased this BSA SuperSport .22 with a...”

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.

This rifle is not a toy or a plinker by any… Read Full Review

Dinglefoot's Response to Blackjackblue's Review

Written on: 26/12/2006

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.

Written on: 31/05/2005 by Russzero (7 reviews written)

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 have had a BSA SuperSport now for quite a bit. It is a .22 and had plenty of stopping power. The accuracy is also good with my Nikko sterling 4x40 scope, I was hitting a 1 1/2 washer at 40 yards! but now I feel that it is losing power, and now that I have an FAC I would like to increase the power could anyone tell me a few tips on tuning it to around 15+ fbl… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2005 by jcow (7 reviews written)

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

Written on: 03/01/2005 by insmeister (1 review written)

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....”

Written on: 05/12/2004 by bantam321 (1 review written)

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

I had a BSA SuperSport .22 as a starter. I fitted a webley 4x40 scope on it and started to zero it in with eley wasps which didn't go well with it, so I changed to accupells and they were very accurate, with 3/4 of an inch groups at 30 yards. I was very chuffed when I bagged my 1st rabbit with it. it is definitely a perfect starter rifle… Read Full Review

I bought the BSA SuperSport .22 Air Rifle a few months ago and have been very impressed with the performance so far. I use it with a 3-9x40 scope which makes it very accurate indeed.
I use it for target shooting as well as hunting vermin. Its lightweight, even when combined with scope and good for those really long treks stalking prey… Read Full Review

I just got my BSA SuperSport today (April 2 2004). It took me 20 minutes to setup the open sight for 35-40ft range. Very accurate and good price ($375 CDN). This is my third rifle .22 for this year and I can really expect something nice from European Air Rifle. My next rifle will be the .177 Diana 36 and .22 Diana 350 Magnum… Read Full Review

for £140 quid you cant go wrong with the BSA SuperSport .22. but for the same price you can have a AGS-SR2. which is a really good rifle.
not too good for hunting. Once you shoot it. your quarry goes away, so you have to make sure it hits home first time.

Bertie's Response to cracker's Review

Written on: 13/09/2004

cracker......I'm not knocking the Supersport, but the Cometa 300 at 36 quid less will probably do the same job with as much noise. This is the problem isn't it whatever the price and performance of a spring-powered air rifle which seems immune to being silenced.

<br>ONE rabbit I bag when I go out which number will hopefully increase when I receive my silenced Air Arms S200.
