Worse airgun ever owned ?

Recommended Posts

What is the worse airgun that folks have ever owned or considered owning ?

Mine was a mk1 airarms S200

Couldn't come to grips with the power spread , hated the way I had to fill it up with air, found it fiddly to load .

My first hw 30 .

The barrel would not lock up in the same position twice so i got vertical stringing poi .

The second one i have .that ive just made a junior stock for is fine

I also had problems with a Hw95 but that was because it was rough as a bears backside internally and I couldn't shoot it accurately until I had it taken apart and tuned .

So glad it wasn't my first spring gun or I would have totally put off spring guns for life I'm sure.

It was also a brand new gun so that was bad.

I wouldn't own a new Hw spring gun ever again

Vastly better, I still own the gun . Only gun I have ever owned in 177.

Sometimes I hancker for a heavier gun like the hw80 or a tx200( maybe one day )

hello, if you read a lot of forums like me ( retired oldy) a few on air rifles, i see many bought those you mention only to find them to heavy for a walk around the fields and 20 plus shots. get a bipod made and stick a T38 red torch on scope for after dark, will be a good hunting kit in .177 as mine was. bipod 2 green 5ft x 15mm diam green poles with bottom spike from home base, cut an old bike inner tube 1 inch wide/ turn round top 3 times pull down 6 inches, wrap top yoke in ? material or research on here a member Mel whos wife Lin make leather yokes to fit poles i have same on mine, never without my bipod with rifles. cheers.

I find the hw95 too light. I have shot a friends hw97 and the extra weight I find it easier to shoot accurately.its untuned and bog standard and isn't as smooth and quiet as my 95

BSA XL Lightning. Even thing that could break, spring, safety, stock broke. A far as I’m concerned BSA stands for Bloody **** Airgun.

BSA lightning in .177,(not Birmingham made) it just rattled itself to bits . I ended up sawing 6 inches off both ends , as it fitted in the wheelie bin better.

Total garbage.

They were good guns until they moved production from Birmingham to Spain

That i dont agree with .

I have a British one and a spanish one .the the build on the spanish is definately better and shoots nicer too .

Ps they xl lightening before they stopped production and made the se models (dont have one of those ) was made in the uk .you can tell as they have a union flag on the side .

Daystate MK3 - expensive pile of carp, stunning trigger but rest of the Gun was pants. Also anything ever made by Diana G80 etc.
