I got the rifle today, had some plinking time then I lay in my field and waited, saw a rabbit and puff! the rabbit was no more. I bought it second hand (scope zeroed in) and as I could not afford a new BSA so I had to go second hand. I did not want a rubbish SMK that's for sure ! the rifle is very accurate in .177 and the pellet can hit a 12"x12" plank of wood from 50m away it is a great rifle.I definitely recommend, more over you are able to sell it and not loose lots of money as it is a...

I have had my Supersport (.177) for just under a year. It was reccomended second hand at £150 instead of a new Commeta or Gamo (didn't like the luminous sights)- thanks to McAvoys of Standish. Steel sights are great up to 20m in decent light. The rifle comes up to the shoulder beautifully and it shoots much better than I can (good day gives you 0.5inch groups at 15 yards no problem) Use good pellets. Mine loves RWS (hobbys and Superdomes) though Webley Acupells are even better. The... (read more)

The Supersport was recommended by my dealer as a good all rounder and excellent value for money.My experience with the gun proves that he was absolutely right.Mine is the .22 carbine model and with a silencer fitted is very easily cocked.It is extremely accurate but my only gripe is the mainspring which broke sooner than I expected.

Nice looking rifle but the latest version is not a patch on the old version. Another example of quality British engineering being undone by by overseas companies, in this case GAMO.
Spend your money on something worthwhile. I have a Weihrauch HM99s which is much better quality, at about the same money. (read more)

The BSA Supersport air rifle is very accurate and powerful..i have the 15 ftp .177 version. who was theperson who decided to put two Alan key screws to hold the barrel down?..i have to keep tightening them..
all round i am happy with it but Jesus, the iron sights and the method of holding the barrel to the stock is very disappointing. I have nailed plumbs consistently at 30 yards so no fluke..powerful enough to knock over a possum and no prob with rabbits. very reliable as i have had this... (read more)

Gives a good kick so feels proper. Also once telescopic sights are zeroed they dont need zeroing untill you knock them. kills well. i hve shot 7 rabbits three pigeons and some maggies with this kills in one clean shot! hits 5p coins at 25yds. if you want a proper air rifle buy this!! great rifle not just for beginners great allround fairly light and powerfull at 11.5fps.

A great little gun with enough accurusy and power for humane hunting and "plinking". Should also last for years! For the money it is awesome. Well i love it anyway! If you dont want/need open sights there is the Lightening models. You have a lot more choice including the excellent Maxi Grip scope rail. Also stock options. I quite fancy a Lightening Tactical in my collection if you have not tried the Tactical try it! It may not look good to you but it feels amazing! (read more)

I have had this rifle for over 17 years now and find it hard to pick any fault. Once sighted in it stays true for as long as it takes to bump the foresights. It is excellent for shooting small game and I have had great success with shooting possums, rabbits and hares, most of them with one shot. I have gone through 3 scopes however and will soon be trying a NC STAR 45mm red dot scope. Shooting at night will be made easier with a scope as the front sight has a very small beed that can be...

This is my first air rifle, bought with a 4-9x40 Hawke mil-dot scope + BSA bag + pellets, all for £250. The first time I tried it on 'zeroing range', I was quickly hitting 30mm size targets at 40 yards. I actually like the sharp 'crack' it makes on firing, and the recoil - it feels like a proper gun, not the sophisticated neutral feel you get from the more expensive guns I've since tried. All round then, I think it's brilliant - I looked at all sorts of other guns before buying and this one... (read more)

I own a Supersport .22 16flbs when i first got it i put a scope and mounts on it after about 500 shot the recoil in the gun made a mess of the mounts and kept knocking my zero out. So i bought a Sportsmatch Dampa mount now it works a treat very accurate have been killing a lot of rabbits with just the other day i hit one at around 40 metres killed it outright. Very good accurate gun with the right mounts on it. (read more)

This gun has quite a fierce clang when you pull the trigger so if you chose to ruin the lines of this stylish little number, mount scopes on it that can cope.
The first thing I did when I got my gun was to modify the open sights. The standard Lego brick sights are ok if you are going to shoot at giant targets.
This is not the gun to buy if you like hitting the target every time but its redeeming qualities make it stand out from the crowd. It has style and character.

My Supersport is fitted with an AGS scope and silencer, i use it at my local air gun club where most people these days use .177, there are a few of us who like our multi-purpose .22.
We can still hit all those knock down targets on the plinking range as well as those .177 owners.
Overall the Supersport is a reliable no frills full power hunter which can still hold it's own on the plinking range. Keep it .22! (read more)

The feel of the rifle is great and the trigger is fine for me.

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 +.

For many months I had been looking through endless gun mags and web sites trying to find the gun for me. Finally I rested upon either a BSA Super Sport or a Lightning. After much thought and consideration I opted for a .177 Supersport as it was far cheaper and there was no obvious advantages with the Lightning apart from the shorter barrel. I ordered it from JS Ramsbottom.com and I had it two days later. As soon as I had unwrapped it I attached a leapers 3-9 x 40 scope and BSA mounts. I got... (read more)

When I decided too buy a new rifle. I tested a lot of different brands eg. Gamo (almost all models), Webley Xocet, Weihrauch (way too expensive), Hatsun Mod70, BAM40 and a few other Chinese rifles. Eventually I settled for the BSA Supersport (.177)

I got my BSA Supersport today and it's great. It's my first air rifle and I can shot cans at 30 yards with open sights. I don't have a scope because I don't think it's needed as the open sights are so accurate. I got the .22 version and with it got through one side of a can and out of the other. It's a good weight you know you have a good Britsh gun in your hands but it's not too heavy. I think I will have many years of fun with this gun.

In this review I am referring to the BSA Supersport carbine version. I bought the BSA Supersport because it was reasonably priced, full power, and the comments about this gun are all good.
I can only add to this praise as this gun is lightweight, (if you get the carbine which I highly recommend for an extra £20) has an adaptor for the silencer, is very well made, and is accurate to 1 inch at 35 yards with practice using 10 shot groupings.
This gun is good for hunting although I do not... (read more)

The BSA Supersport rifle is great. It is accurate (1.0inch groups at 35yrds), powerful, and light (6.5lbs) this gun is ideal for hunting and also plinking. When I first took it out it was under power (10flbs) but put a good few rounds through it and settled down to a reasonable 11.7flbs which is plenty for hunting. The second time I took it out I could hear grinding on loading so I took it home and striped it to find grit on the cocking linkage so a little clean and oil and it was fine but... (read more)

I had the BSA Supersport given to me at Christmas and it has been a joy to handle compared with my old air rifle (an SMK b3-f). The rifle fits nicely in the hand and is at just the right weight. My air rifle has been fitted with a silencer and is a carbine version so it is a deadly tool when shooting from a hide. The stock is very nicely finished and the adjustable trigger has a crisp, clean pull. it is extremely accurate and I am very pleased with it. (read more)

I have had my .177 BSA Supersport for some years now and have done very well with it. I bought it for £250 including a scope and a tin of Eley Wasp.
Upon firing it I did notice that the recoil was quite substantial but this can be easily fixed by fitting a gas ram (which I have and well recommend). The trigger pull is adjustable 2 stage and is factory set to be quite stiff, so there may be some work needed there.
