“Beware Newer Guns”

Written on: 25/02/2013

The newer versions of these guns are not true copies of that famous German brand that we all know and love. Beware that the trigger unit on newer rifles is NOT the Rekord copy that you may be expecting. Also, beware the 'safety' (!) catch that is known either not to set when the rifle is cocked, or locks up meaning that the gun cannot be fired. Dangerous whatever way you look at it. I kept an open mind and took a chance on the SX20 - What a pity… Read Full Review

I've recently bought an XS 20 with the "good" trigger and it is a lovely gun. Beautifully made. Very accurate and when I had greased the mainspring properly (SMKs do tend to arrive rather dry) it was a delight to shoot. I have owned two HW 95s and am a Fan but I honestly think there is nothing to choose between the now. I still do not know if they are being produced with the Record trigger copy or the very inferior other
which I agree should be avoided. I've bought countless air rifles in my time and this is the nicest.

You are very lucky to have managed to purchase a gun of the older (hugely superior) design.

The new ones might look the same but in reality are not, and frankly, don't deserve the XS20 branding.

The positive SMK XS20 reviews (and believe me when I say that I researched this thoroughly, even speaking to one of the top tuning shops in the UK), refer to the gun that you bought.

Mine was awful.

Based upon that first bad experience, I would *never* knowingly buy another SMK gun. 'Once bitten, twice shy' and all that.

Had I walked out of the shop with yours, which is reputed to be excellent, my review would have been very different.

The moral of my story (based upon my experience only, not yours) - If you want a German gun, buy a German gun.

Safe shooting.

I got the b.a.m xs 20 used last year and have shot over 500 pellets using it with no issues at all. I find this gun to be the most accurate and power is very good too. Mine is a old one I think as the last ower told me its been in his shed for years. I have a old b2 that has been tuned and that is a good gun too for the price.


I think its best to buy a old used one as they cost about 70% less and work 100% better.

“I have a XS20 and I find this gun quite hard to beat...”

Written on: 23/10/2009

I have a XS20 and I find this gun quite hard to beat for the price. The gun is a copy of the Famous HW95 even down to the fab rekord trigger.
It does need a bit of de-burring on some of the metal parts.

I replaced the original spring for a high power (12ft/lbs)low recoil stainless steel spring fitted with delrin tophat & spring guide available through http://www.woodfield-gcp.webs.com/ this spring is one of the best available for the XS20 & XS19 rifles.
The gun is now shooting ragged 10p size… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2009 by rob m1rjg (1 review written)

The SMK Supergrade XS-20 is a great gun, I love using it, I would advise anyone who shoots small vermin to buy one. I shoot mine everyday. it has a really nice feel and also has an ajustable trigger which is nice. mine has the smk mil dot 3-9x40 sight which is an excellent combo. love it to bits. found mine works best with the WASP No.3 Domed pellet as this seems to have a very consistant accuracy. I have tryed SMK. Marksman. Custom, and the little wasps seem to pull through every time. I have… Read Full Review

“I have only just come back to air rifles after 40...”

Written on: 02/04/2009 by PaulR986 (2 reviews written)

I have only just come back to air rifles after 40 years. All I originally wanted to do was shoot the rats that come into our property from the surrounding fields. So - I bought a relatively cheap one - the SMK Supergrade SX20.

Of course i bought some targets so I could practice - blimey at 30 yards using Bisley Magnums and a 3-9 Walther telescope it shoots the centre out of targets time after time. Rats don't stand a chance.

In the end I was having so much fun I joined the local rifle club and… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2009

Recently bought my SMK Supergrade XS-20 as a back up rifle for lighter work when my pcps are not needed!!
now finding myself using it more and more often its great to shoot and deadly accurate, with a good set off sights and paying that's bit more for good pellets rabbits don't stand a chance at over 100ft !!
as for the critics who are not into the cheaper rifles on the market they should try this great rifle and dont forget shooting is 90% the shooter and 10% the rifle!!!
happy hunting !!!… Read Full Review
