Frankly I don't remember what I paid for the gun, so it's hard to rate the "value", but I have had it for at least 20 years and it's a great gun. Not for the timid. Hard to cock, you can feel the recoil, but decent trigger, very accurate and very powerful. Front and rear sights both intact but have used a red dot for the last ten years. Works good for targets, works great for small varmints and plinking stuff. Can't imagine it ever wearing it out. The cocking force is the only... (read more)

Feels rugged and unbreakable. Accurate with standard sights. BSA Scorpion .22 is well made and powerful. Not for lefthanders. Very hard to cock. (read more)

Am happy with my Scorpion .22 - it is the best of the springer pistols (I have owned and used BOTH the Diana P5M and HW45 in .22); it has less recoil than the HW45; and a nicer trigger than the P5M.
Power is equal to or better than any other springer pistol - plenty of power to take out those pesky rats inside of 10 yards. Accuracy is fine once you get used to firing it and letting the recoil become part of the firing cycle.
Trigger is good - better than my Diana P5M; almost as good as my... (read more)

I owned one fitted with a scope for about 14 years and used it daily, I perfected the balance by putting a coil of lead in the back of the receiver in front of the spring rear block retaining pin. (read more)

I acquired this pistol when my uncle sadly died about a month ago at the young age of 46. I am 19 now and always admired the gun when I saw him but I never got to shoot it until he died and I had it. It seems good and powerful and with Sabo brass pellets it's a killer. I need to adjust the sights but other than that I love the gun. (read more)

Powerful pistol of the prestigious BSA. .22 also made in .177. I had one of these about 20 years ago, it was accurate when you got used to the kick it had.
I am sorry to see it go, I sold mine about 2 years ago for £65.00, it was slightly illegal with today's law, when tested with the chrono the power was 7ftlb, the legal limit 6ftlb so be careful with your old guns. (read more)

I bought this second-hand BSA Scorpion .22, as they have been discontinued by BSA for several years. It is amazingly powerful. I don't own a Chrony but it can bury pellets in a plank of wood as deeply as my Weihrauch hw45 which has about 6ft pounds muzzle velocity.
On the down side. it lacks accuracy owing to the recoil when you pull the trigger. Also it is spoiled slightly by the plastic trigger. (read more)

The BSA Scorpion .22 was the last air pistol I owned as a youth twenty odd years ago. I bought it in 177 form and used it on rabbits ,pheasents and starlings and if you hit them right it was very sucessful,it felt good in the hand ,but if aiming for a while, it got a bit shakey. It was always best to rest it on something. Quite hard to load when new, the aid was good idea. I have shot a fair few air pistols in my time and I feel powerwise it is comparable to most, if not all spring powered... (read more)

I got a BSA Scorpion .22 air pistol when I was a teenager many moons ago. At the time it was one of the pistols to have. One of the few pistols that you could actually use for vermin control above say a starling or rat.
Accuracy is not too bad. Like most guns the shooter is the determining factor. The only bad point I remember is the fact that the left handed shooter is not catered for. Why the grip design could not be ambidextrous is beyond me! (read more)

I bought my BSA Scorpion .22 a year ago at a local gun shop for 70 quid, it is in perfect condition and has hardly been used (before me) as i take it every time I go shooting as it is great as a back-up shot to finish off rabbits. Its heavy, well made and great fun all day long, get one! (read more)

I fell in love with the BSA Scorpion as a kid, and decided to try and get my hands on one a few years ago, but they generally turned up over priced or over used. Finally bought one off an old friend who I didn't even know had one. It's mint (really), in the original box, even the bottle of oil (unopened), and steel target holder are there. Fired it today and it's dieseling badly (because he drowned it in oil to preserve it) so I have ordered a new mainspring, breech seal and piston washers... (read more)

Bought the BSA Scorpion .22 in a sorry state,'because I have a lot more respect and liking for earlier air weapons, no disrespect to anyone, I just like them better. When I bought it, it was well poorly, the pellets bounced off the paper target!! (well, almost)
Couple of phone calls and I was talking to a guy who could replace anything I wanted on the gun. Maybe that says something about the quality of manufacture, 20 odd years on all parts still available!! Springs/seals/packing/sights... (read more)

I have recently aquired one of these BSA Scorpion .22 calibre pistols, and have quickly come to turns with its great looks and exceptional handling. This pistol was originaly designed to cater for the air pistol legal limit of 6ft lbs. As I have it now I don't believe that it is reaching these power levels at the moment as it has had about 25 years of rough usage. So I may take it to have its inners checked up and some replaced to restore it to its former glory. Overall this pistol is a... (read more)

I bought my BSA Scorpion .22 air pistol second hand for sixty quid last year, with a bsa 1.5 x 15 pistol scope. It was well knackered after 20 years of use, so I rebuilt the internals (new mainspring, piston washer, seals etc). Fortunately the blueing is in good nick - no rust.
Now produces approx 6-7ft lbs at muzzle, and will punch a 1/2" hole after 5 shots at 15 metres.
I added a Webley pro-system silencer to quieten it down, the muzzle crack was loud.
Well worth the cash if you can find one! (read more)
