my son odered a brass bolt brass trigger gard and brass trigger for my s400, it was for my 65th birthday, he does not earn a great deal of money so this is why i was so upset when only the brass bolt arrived, they told him there was a ten day wait for the other items, he placed the order on the 2d of november 2013, the other two parts arrived in februaryy to find that they were for an earlyer model, i sent the items back and three weeks later they told me that the company had gone bust, so i… Read Full Review

“Brilliant honest old fashioned service,”

Written on: 15/02/2014

Reading the last couple of reviews I had to look again to see if I was reviewing the right place, but I suppose if they are true reviews and not jealous competitors then everyone can make mistakes. I have made a huge amount of purchases here over the yeArs and have always found the service to be absolutely first class in every respect. There is a great deal of knowledge and honest advice freely available here and I for one respect a company that will give you an honest opinion on products… Read Full Review

“bought new, supplied second hand, ARROGANT!”

Written on: 28/01/2014

I traveled from scotland to buy my new AA S200, scope, divers bottle etc, etc.. also bought magazine conversion and spare mags. When I got home, found the mags to be used and the o-ring in them in tatters. Rang up to inform them and staff were unsurprised, said it happened alot although they never bothered to check them, but if i really wanted replacements then I'd have to foot the bill to return them. Needless to say I was not happy! I returned the items by post, but a few weeks later… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 05/07/2013 by Anfield1964 (1 review written)

Bought 2 HW pistols last week, a Blackstar and a Silverstar, excellent guns and shooting really well after a tin of pellets. More importantly brilliant service from the tall bald man (sorry but forgot his name), could not have been more professional, courteous and helpful, had just been to another shop and got quite the opposite. Great service and will be back for more. Cheers Derek L… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2013

Very good service from [name removed] , bought my new R10 from here and nothing was too much trouble. Spent a good time explaining options for my new gun and helping me choose the right accessories for my needs. My wife really appreciated his politeness and the cup of tea whilst she waited for me.

“Over the moon”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by CatInTheTinFoilHat (2 reviews written)

Being a bit of a noob I was a little nervous about going in a gun shop and buying an air rifle. I was soon made to feel relaxed with a friendly staff atmosphere. The shop appears well kitted out with some beautiful rifles on display and associated paraphenalia. After doing a bit of research I decided I wanted an AA TX200hc and MTC scope. I phoned first to make sure they had them in stock and drove over. Managed to get a parking spot right outside too which was nice. When I saw the rifle I was… Read Full Review

“Best Airgun retailer in the north..”

Written on: 22/02/2013 by Andyho (1 review written)

I have been dealing with Blackpool Air Rifles for roughly twenty years, first as a mail order customer and the the past fifteen years in person. I shoot various disciplines in both shotgun, rimfire, centerfire as well as airguns and really appreciate having a shop with just one section of the shooting sports in mind. It's so obvious when talking to the guys in the shop that just concentrating on airguns has given them the specialist knowledge sometimes lacking from other shops It's also… Read Full Review

“Poor service”

Written on: 14/02/2013 by KIDn (1 review written)

Ordered items online from BAR worth more than £350, having previously bought Daystate airwolf/lightstream scope from them as well. They did not have all the items in stock, and promised to call me prior to dispatch. When they sent the order (3 weeks later) I was away on holiday and the order was returned uncollected to BAR. They then tried to charge me the P+P again prior to re-dispatching the order, although it was their lack of communication that caused a problem... Needless to say… Read Full Review

Airgunbuyer's Comment

Written on: 05/02/2013

I You are right it is not the sort of service we aspire to and after reading your review have spoken to my staff about the service you were given. I don't know how we can make it up to you but I am willing to try if you will give us another chance. The website was changed so the error didn't happen again, not for any nefarious reasons. My apologies for your disappointing experience.
Lloyd. Owner of BAR.

Written on: 12/11/2010 by chrisrfoster (1 review written)

Took my HW95 in for them to fit a V-mach kit, on Monday lunch, asked if they could have it done by Friday, they said as short staffed they couldnt say for sure but would try. 3hrs later phone call to say it was complete, well done lads !! Also wanted a sling as was about to buy one, when I was advised to wait as some better ones were coming in for the same price.

They gave great advice and service, I would recommend them and will be using them in future.

Thanks BAR… Read Full Review

I visited the shop last weekend, i went in to purchase an Air Arms S410 at £519 and an air arms silencer and ended up purchasing an Air Arms S400 with a weihrauch silencer, at a saving of over £130. the staff in the shop were brill, they spent the time showing the difference between the silencers, explained that i didnt need to purchese the s410 for what i was using the gun for, which felt strange a shop down grading a sale, which my wife was happy with..lol .

Written on: 27/09/2010

I found this review not helpful because...coming in the shop with a bad attitude really doesn't help . We still sorted out your problem despite your attitude though so this cheap shot at us on the internet should be viewed as such. You should be ashamed of yourself.
