“The best!”

Written on: 21/01/2014 by Biker_Bob (17 reviews written)

I've got three of these now I like them so much. Pinpoint accuracy out to 50yds, not at all pellet fussy but JSBs or any of the rebranded versions thereof will see you right. If you can't knock a 5p piece of a gatepost at 40yds with an Ultra then it's your fault and not the gun. Fill to 185bar in 177 and you'll get 32 shots spot on at 35yds. If you fill to 195 bar and shoot 1/3" high for the first and last 3 shots you'll get 40 out of it. Reliability is good, sometimes they can leak from around… Read Full Review

It's a 12fltb airgun, you're looking at around 770fps.
Perfect for all the usual airgun species including rabbits and pigeons

“So good I bought another and looking for a 3rd.”

I bought my 10 year old granddaughter a single shot tactical for club HFT and found it so good I sold my faithful AA S400 Classic .22 and bought an Ultra SE multishot .177 for range use. I now want .22 multishot for use on my permissions. I am 65 years of age and had so many air rifles since my teens I could not possibly remember them all. However the Ultras have made an i delible i pressionon me. Never have I shot so comfortable a rifle with blinding accuracy, consistency, reliability… Read Full Review

They get you like that, I've got three now, all 177 single shot MMC versions.
I picked up a 2nd hand stock, took 5" off the back, painted it pink, stuck a bipod on it and my 5yr old daughter is shooting it with good results.

I managed to bag an MMC Ultra .22 on a forum private sale. It has a Walnut stock in beautiful condition, so good in fact I decided to protect it with camo tape that sticks to itself rather than stick to the stock. Would have preferred the .22 SE but at the price I got it I'm happy witha Rowan Engineering manual index magazine. Got what I want in the way of Ultras but I now fancy a. 25 R10

“Great gun for small price”

I have been out off touch for all my married life 30 odd years until Aug 2010 when i decided to get back into FT only to find out Rifles have come on so much in this time. Well i bought the BSA Ultra Tactical single shot, single for comps i got it in .177 with a shot count of 35 which compared to others is poor so i looked at getting mine regulated and did so with Darren at XTX Air i now get 67 shots from the small tank, i used this rifle in our CSFTA and came 3rd place c grade.

“Fantastic little rifle!!”

Written on: 23/07/2012 by kevroa1969 (1 review written)

Just bought an Ultra Multishot .177 Tactical, stuck a silencer on it. To be honest I went into the gunshop looking for a scorpion multishot but it didn't feel as nice up on the aim. This wee rifle sat on my shoulder a treat. It's my first pcp having been out of the loop for three years, I traded in a Weirauch HW90k and a Gamo CF30 and I'm really happy I did. Luckily the gun club has free air so right now there's no need to get my own bottle, but I probably will at some point. It's knocking down… Read Full Review

“BSA Utra”

Written on: 26/06/2012 by Staffy1 (1 review written)

This has got to be the best air gun I've owned so far. Over the last 27 years I have owned Webley springers, BSA, Springers,BSF 54, Originals and Weirauch 80,57,35,95, sharp Innova and so on. The BSA ultra out shoots them all. Ive upped my hunting range to 30 metres from my previous 20 metre range. Would I recommend this yes definitely. PCP have transformed air-gunning. I would happily take out a rabbit at 30 metres with this which I have never before. Reliable, easy to fill, well made and un… Read Full Review

“Lacks range and power”

Written on: 01/06/2012 by JeffCee (1 review written)

I bought this BSA Ultra gun 14 months ago,I took too much notice of the reviews which said it was a brilliant little gun but from day one it lacked any decent range, I have dispatched many short range (20 yards) pigeons but any distance over 30 yards it’s useless, you can actually see the pellet dropping through the scope. When I’ve been lucky to hit pigeon’s at 30 yards only just for the pellet to bounce off and the bird just fly’s off! I’ve given it a fair chance but fed up so… Read Full Review

Well I'll be. Never heard that before. I too have an Ultra and my sight is zero'd at approx 40 meters. I can drop a rabbit at that range no worries, as for a woodie, they have no chance.
Think you might have needed it setting up properly because there is no power problem normally.
Never mind, like you said you gave it a fair chance. Good luck with the HW95, sounds nice.

“After many years of owning springers, I finally...”

Written on: 22/01/2011 by Kimm742 (60 reviews written)

After many years of owning springers, I finally succumbed to the lure of a .22 PCP. Popping down to the gun shop and handling quite a few, the Ultra really stood out. Striking looks, lovely woodwork and deep lustrous blueing (or is that blacking?)It feels great, has perfect balance, and the carbine length can be a real boon. I went for the single-shot version because, for me, a magazine would offer no great advantage, whilst adding an additional complexity.
The Ultra is about as accurate as a… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/06/2010 by KillerBunny1234 (1 review written)

Had the BSA Ultra tactical .177 Single shot now for a month. Low mounts and a Hawke 3-9 50 scope mounted on low mounts. Scope fitted with the MAP6 retile and zeroed using the free software downloaded from Hawke. Clearance from scope to barrel is under 1mm. Preferred pellet is the Bisley Magnum. Changed silencer.
On a full charge at 232bar I get around 35 shots at full power of 11.77 ft pounds, as the magnum is 10.6 grains. Using RWS Superpoint I get around 10.5 ft pounds at 8.2 grains. The… Read Full Review

Very good review,thank`s! Fired a friend`s Ultra at our club last night and was impressed and thought I might ask Santa for one!I wasn`t aware of \"no gauge\"or low shots.
Friend said he did think his was underpowered when he first bought it and probably only delivering 10.5/10.75,perhaps changing his ammo.might help. I will tell him of your review.Once again thankyou for a well written appraisal.

Written on: 06/06/2010

Went to buy a second one and the pressure was only 9.6lbs, no good. The shop owner opened new a one and that also was down on power?. Nice little gun but check on a chrono before purchase as they will need to go back to BSA. Low shots per charge will drive you crazy, decided to buy a better second hand multishot instead, my advice save another £100 and buy a multishot with a bigger air reserve. 30 shots is just not good enough. Accuracy is as any £300 - ££450 rifle, shame about the air reserve… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/05/2010

The BSA Ultra single shot .22 is an impressive Little gun, perfect for me as I'm of shorter build, innovative loading although a multishot converter would be handy! Suprisingly you can load this gun almost silently in about 10 seconds so you dont disturb and targets too much. Silencer looks nice with the gun as its short and stubby with the suppressing power of a larger silencer. Pellet loading may be fiddly for larger fingers as you need to place the pellet in a loading resevoir and press a… Read Full Review
