bsa airsporter s.

Recommended Posts

Thanks bruno22rf for clearing that up.The AirsporterS in .177 is mine as is the Theoben and there’s not much between them in age. The Airsporter S was bought in 1981 and the Theoben made just a few years later.

ant.mass sorry but it’s the only rifle I’ll never sell for me it’s perfect,it was 13 years old when I bought it virtually unfired  from a collector for £250 probably late 1990s if you can find one I’d recommend you buy it I don’t think you’d regret it.

dekers I just noticed your comment posh ****** if that was aimed at me ,I think you’ll agree I’m not such a posh ****** when I advise you in good old Glasgow vernacular to “ Get a life ya ****”

Its pretty clear that he was paying your rifle a compliment.

Ok well I'm sure Dekers will clarify at some point.  Irrespective, it's against the terms of membership to abuse others so please don't.

Mine from new in about 1970/71 I believe, and if memory serves me correctly still about 11.4ft lb when I last checked, gets very little use these days but can't bring myself to sell it! Oh yes, and a proper calibre .22! :lol::good:

Zapp I'm surprised you didn't jump in earlier Nemo me impune lacessit

Having seen your latest post Dekers my sincere apologies

Oh ok.  That's because as I said it was clear it was not meant in a negative way, as has now been confirmed by Dekers.

Sorry Zapp but I don’t think it was clear at all two words open to interpretation one of which was asterisked out with no supporting sentence to put it in context

Ok.  Probably best to check and be clear first next time before wrongly launching into people though.

Love the look of the Airsporter S and still have mine from about 83 I think, in the rarer .177. Not shot it in a long while but I will never sell it as I have lots of fond memories and a scar to remind me to be  more careful when changing the spring lol

Only regret I have with mine is I stupidly put a suppreser  on it and marked the barrel with the grub screw  doh

My father had an airsporter and when I was 16 (1959) he bought me a Webley MK III. We shot a lot together and on balance I believe the Webley MK III to be the better air rifle. Certainly better engineered. Sadly, he lent his BSA to a cousin and it never came back. My Webley is safely tucked away upstairs.
