“BSA Superstar stands the test of time.”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by geekas (1 review written)

I bought my Superstar over 20 years ago when I lived in England. I was competing in field target and doing quite well. I put a custom stock on it and a Theoben gas ram, topped it off with a 4x16 Tasco scope. I can take my Superstar out any time and it shoot great tight groups. Is excellent for small game. Possibly the finest rifle I have owned and still shoot with. I Even taught my children to shoot with it when they were big enough to use it safely. High quality workmanship and a… Read Full Review

“Value for money, accuracy, it has it all. Brilliant.”

Written on: 25/11/2011 by johnstuartworrall (1 review written)

I am 63 now, and have owned about 60 rifles, English and Foreign. I have had three Superstars, I will never part with the one I have now, fitted with a scope it is deadly accurate. I once shot a rat through the head and there was a hole near its tail where the pellet came out. In my opinion it is the finest underlever BSA have ever produced. As with everything there is a down side, the weight of the rifle, its quite heavy, but it helps with the accuracy. The rifle is not for someone who needs… Read Full Review

Totally agree about Accuracy, value for money and handling. I bought my mk2 22 superstar last year , I wanted a good starter rifle at a good price and once i got the sights set up i was loving the power dont think i will ever get rid of it as i am killing rabbits at up to 40yds easy , the gun has good power even my friend says he would love to buy it off me and he has a multi shot riffle. If anybody wants a good springer riffle and if u can find a good one then go for a superstar mk2 . The gun is a bit heavy but as others do state it does help with the accuracy .. :) For a springer 9/10

“Great Rifle”

Written on: 18/06/2011 by Yabaman (4 reviews written)

I am 43 and i purchased the Super Star when i was in my 20s. Its an accurate,steady and great looking springer which i beleive is probably the best rifle BSA ever made when BSA was a true original and airguns were made in England. I eventually sold the Super Star in 2005 after buying a Diana Magnum springer and an Air Arms FAC XTRA PCP.the pcp was and is a great air rifle but the Diana is very powerfull but not as reliable and acurate as the Super Star. I ended up selling the Diana and buying a… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010 by Aran Man (1 review written)

I am now 35 and I purchased the Superstar when I was 17. In that time the gun has never failed to deliver and the only replacement piece to the gun this year was a new AGS Scope which is a fantastic addition to this rifle. I use the gun predominantly for vermin control and it groups brilliantly at 30 yards. I am considering purchasing the BSA R10 as I am brand loyal however it helps that the reviews are excellent. I will not get rid of the superstar as I will keep it for life. Weight is an… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2010

I was fortunate enough to purchase this gun back in 1996, my first and adult airgun so far. I only wish it was a carbine instead. Here it is 2010, the gun still shoots great. By far, the easiest and safest fixed barrel airgun to load. Just learned that I should not oil the chamber because it will dilute the moly loading ramp. I did make a mistake and put two drops on oil in the chamber 10 years ago, never again. Excellent trigger and accuracy, I can hit tennis balls at 40 yards all day. I just… Read Full Review

had my superstar for a few months and put alot of pellets through her, after strip down deburring new spring and seals i can say this is a superb rifle, build quality is superb, accuracy is superb, once you get her zeroed in. recoil is there but i have never had a pcp so cant compare there. its not that bad, after the tune the gun performed alot better and quieter. use nice tight fitting pellets in this gun like eley wasps 5.6's

ill fitting pellets cause this gun to be alot louder than with a… Read Full Review

“I own an HW77 & BSA Superstar. I always tell everyone...”

Written on: 20/04/2009 by eezageeza (1 review written)

I own an HW77 & BSA Superstar. I always tell everyone that my HW77 is my favourite air rifle, but I actually seem to take my BSA Superstar out much more often... Much safer loading mechanism when compared with the 'Bear trap' that is the HW77.

Nice and light when compared with the brilliant HW77.

Intuitively accurate when raised to shoulder and shot quickly. It's not as aesthetically pleasing as the HW77, but does look nice.

Does require more maintenance than HW77 to keep the Superstar in top… Read Full Review

It would be fair to describe this as the rifle that saved BSA, before this they were still making and relying on designs that had been around for ages. If you can find a cherished example grab it and look after it, you wont be disappointed. It is almost beyond comprehension that BSA have not developed and continued this rifle… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2006 by Heathen (2 reviews written)

I have had my BSA Super Star for years, not really sure when I bought it, maybe 1990 or 1991. She is .22, I bought it with a 3-9x40 Bisley scope and 1 piece mount. The scope died and the one piece mount has long gone. I now use a Simmons Whitetail Classic Compact 1.5-5x20 scope. I have a silencer fitted but cannot remember the manufacturer name. Fitting of this required scope adjustment. I had the rifle chrono'd 4 years ago using Field Target Trophy pellets and 11.9 was the power reading… Read Full Review

“The BSA Superstar .177 ”

Written on: 03/03/2006 by rcc (9 reviews written)

The BSA Superstar .177
I've been given one by a friend at work, I thought it was a bit old and heavy, till I stripped it down give it a good cleaning, degreased and re blued it and a little drop of oil
I then put a few pellets through it, then I thought what a lovely gun, the accuracy for this old gun is fantastic
I was hitting a 1p at 25 meters 9 out of 10 shots,
I don't know what any body else thinks but it's good enough for me… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2006 by moonstomper (3 reviews written)

The BSA Superstar will suit most air gunners needs good hunting rifle and will cope with field targets with ease. In my opinion better than rapid series 250 shots per charge is good. Had number of guns through the years this is the best there is. No need to have any extra power than 12ft lbs to tune this gun would ruin it with lack of shots an accuracy. Trust me I have tried you don't need the extra power if you can shoot straight… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/01/2006 by Robertv (1 review written)

At 13 my dad got me a .177 brake barrel [unknown brand]which I loved and spent all the money I could get my hands on buying pellets for. By my 15th b'day I wanted a .22 so I traded in my old .177 for a BSA Superstar [just released?]
Now I was not the biggest 15 year old and the weight of it with scope took some getting used to but when I did I could out shoot all my friends. Happy days. It has lived in it's rifle case now for a good few years as I have been living in towns and to fire it in the… Read Full Review

Kiltedmonster's Response to Robertv's Review

Written on: 19/11/2006

I had a BSA Superstar years a go. Wife had a little girl and I had to sell it, as needs must. I have been looking for one for couple of years now, and I just can't seem to find one. If any one out there has one for sale I would love to buy it, but it must be in 1.77 cal, as I found this to be super. I can't understand why BSA stopped making them, so any one with one who wants it to go to a good home, I am your man. If you are interested, I can give you my contact details via the Review Centre forum.

Written on: 21/12/2005 by stewartmcdonn3 (1 review written)

I was looking for a second rifle down the ranges as my HW35 is getting on a bit - 25 years old - and came across the BSA Superstar. Ever since I laid my eyes on it I can't stop thinking about it, its accuracy is spot on without scope and I totally recommend using .22 Logun penetraters with it, suprisingly the most acurate rifle I have ever used, I think it could certainly could compete with (PCP)'S. It's perhaps even better than some top range modles. Finally build quality is superb, the stock… Read Full Review

I absolutely agree with the review on the Superstar.I bought a 177 magnum superstar from new 17 years ago,sold it to a friend when i bought a Diana 46 and bought it back from my mate after using th diana for 2 years.This air rifle can compete with any new hi tech springer any time.The quality is AAA and acuracy is perfect.I also own an Air Arms s410 XTRA FAC which is a superb weapon but my BSA Superstar is my pride and joy and no Diana or weirach can compare.

Written on: 12/05/2005 by Jasonnaicker (10 reviews written)

I bought my BSA super star air rifle when it first came out. I was just handed it along with a selection of weapons that I'd chosen to try out (dealer said that I might like it). Superb balance - I used mine for pest control work for my employer on overtime (hence its paying for itself).

The spring gave out eventually (during pest control sessions I would grind out silly amounts of pellets)

I found it worked really well with a 4 x 40 scope at 20/25 metre ranges… Read Full Review
