I bought the S2 because it reminded me of the Slavia pistols of my youth. Being cheap and Chinese ( the pistol not me) I knew it would require a bit of TLC to get it shooting well. The trigger needed a lot of pressure, which was easy to fix with a little filing on the sear. The sights are awful and were of no use because the barrel needs recrowning, the pellets were flying way high and to the right, so my next job is to take a drill, a brass screw and some valve grinding paste and try to… Read Full Review

My son was showing an interest in air weapon sports so as this was going for £15 I bought it for him to plink around and to see how he got on. In my opinion, the SMK S2 .177 is rough looking and after five metres, wildly inaccurate but as a cheap entry level weapon it does the job. Put more than a tin of pellets through it without any loss of power or failure. My son got on with it well and has now moved up to a Crosman 2240… Read Full Review

The SMK S2 is well made, and cheap. A decent first air pistol, far better than a gat of about the same price, and it has rifled barrel. ,177 is the better cal. Oil the piston before use. Better still, strip the pistol down and tune it up yourself.its worth it. Can be rusty inside and bone dry… Read Full Review

This gun is basically the B2 of pistols. It even has the same horrible coloured paint on the grip.
The pistol is a basic break barrel. Break the barrel, load a pellet and fire. The accuracy of the gun is not worth having. Can't hit a thing with it. After a few shots the screws begin to fall out. The power is also pretty poor.
In my opinion this pistol is not worth having. Even if it was made accurate, the power wouldn't be able to carry it through.
Stay well clear of this… Read Full Review

Why all the complaints about this gun,
Mine hardly ever miss its target at 13m-15m
and can pierce cans easily from same distance
crows don't stand a chance with this air gun very accurate and packs a punch
A+… Read Full Review

I recently got the SMK S2 .177 air gun, and I have to say, that for £17 from NM Products, I am impressed!
The power is good for a cheap gun, but it needs regular maintenance to stay good. I dismantled it and cleaned it, which seems to have made it much more powerful.
The only bad point worth writing about is the poor build quality. Although it is a good gun, it looks as if a child has taken a rifle and been told to file it down into a pistol. The accuracy is quite good, and more than good… Read Full Review

This pistol cost new £18.00 and for the money excellent value. I have a Westlake version with plastic grips XS3 in .177 and I thought it would perform the same, well I was wrong. This fires a RWS Geco at consistent 365-370 fps my XS3 330 fps both have Daisy red dot sights the S2 grouped 15mm and XS3 20 mm at 8 mts. A S2 in .22 at the club not sure of what pellet was fired chonographed at 270 fps.
I have no probelm with the finish or the woodwork however it has no anti-bear trap and if you… Read Full Review

I got my SMK S2 the other day off the internet for back garden plinking and I'm very pleased with it. It's cheap but this shows in the build quality. I stripped mine down and cleaned the parts and put a light coating of gun grease on the internals and Bisley gun lube in the barrel and mine works like a fairly high priced one now. All in all I'm very pleased with. I can shoot starlings on my roof with it from 20 meters or less. Hope this helps… Read Full Review

If you need a gun to kill birds at 11 yards or less then get the SMK S2 .177. It will do the job but don't think it's some really powerful gun at 400fps with 7.9 pellets… Read Full Review

Maybe I just got a very bad one, but in my opinion, if you look at the SMK S2 .177 as a paperweight (and don't mind spending £25 on one, rather than using a tin of beans for around 1/75th of the cost) then it could be quite a good buy.
First impressions weren't good - the woodwork is finished to the same poor standard as the B2 rifle, but somehow it looks much worse on a pistol, probably because you can see it all close up at the same time. The metalwork is of a similar crude standard; overall… Read Full Review

The SMK S2 .177 pistol is amazing value for money but the build quality, as you would expect for 25 pounds, is not perfect. My pistol was reasonably powerful at first, but after a 100 shots or so it became too weak to penetrate and exit can of beer. I believe this is due to the poor quality oil that is used in production by the Chinese. I dismantled the pistol, cleaned it and coated the cylinder and spring with molybdenum paste, (available on Ebay). It now penetrates a Heinz baked bean can. The… Read Full Review

Just got the SMK S2 .177. First impressions are its heavy to hold but I think thats due to the butt being to short and the paint work is rubbish. Now the good points: It's a no thrills cheap air pistol its fairly powerful, well enough for plinking in the garden, so if you want a cheap air pistol get an S2, For £20 you can't go wrong… Read Full Review

The SMK S2 .177 is in my opinion the Worst Pistol ever. Buy an old webly junior instead for £10 more. My S2 broke in the first hour. How anyone could describe this gun as a close range hunter I don't know… Read Full Review

I've had my SMK S2 .177 for about 6 months now I try to try and find something good to say about everything I review but I can honestly say there is nothing good about this air pistol.
For £25 people may think its an absolute bargain but it really isn't even worth that, the accuracy is appalling, 6 inch groups at 10 meters and this is nothing to do with my marksmanship. I can get pleasing results with any of my other air guns.
As for power people who recommend this for a close range hunting… Read Full Review

SMK S2 .177 was the first airgun I ever bought, mainly because it was very cheap. although there are no official documents giving the exact power, I would say it isn't all that powerful simply because it does not cause much damage, even to say, cardboard (which it will rarely go through 2 layers of). The sights on this gun are probably acceptable, but difficult to aim correctly with without practice. Despite all this is a cheap and basic air pistol, which works how you would expect. I have only… Read Full Review

I firstly bought my SMK S2 .22 Air Rifle about 2 years a go when i first got it out of the box it didnt even pierce polystyrine, but after some gun oil and about 4 to 5 tins of pellets this gun was soon enough piercing aerosol cans at about 8 to 9 foot away, but the guns piston inside started to wear out after about 8 months and the gun slowly lost power and then broke. After this i purchased an SMK S2 .177 this was of slightly better quality it has a rifled barrel where as the .22 didnt and… Read Full Review

This SMK S2 .177 is the worst Air Rifle i have shot in my life! it is no better than a G 10 and is EXTREMELY unaccurate! i am very doubtful that people were able to use this for hunting rabbits from 15m as it would just bounce off leaving the prey no worse for wear!… Read Full Review

Bought the SMK S2 .177 a while back and only really started to use it. Not knowing much about pistols, I thought that you could shoot Through anything with this thing, but reality is this gun is rubbish even for plinking really. Not worth the box it comes in. Tried hunting with it a few times but it is not powerful enough for anything and I suggest a Crosman 1377c to replace this hunk of junk if hunting is what you wish to do… Read Full Review
