Because of the stock I'm guessing Mk1 

Had a Mk1 30 years ago and it looked like that as i dont believe that any meteor since has had the groves in the stock 

But I could be completely wrong

Hi.

I have a BSA METEOR air rifle and I am wanting to service it but there are no markings on it to identify its mark type 

the only stamping visible is “BSA Meteor and the Trade mark. I have looked at Mk 1,2 ,3 ,4 ,5 & 7 drawings but can’t see any with the same piston as mine with 2 ‘O‘ ring grooves

can any one help?

see attached photos.

The O rings are the sort of ting I used ro keep along withallother airgun spares .I seem to recall there were 2 types .the O ring type and a PTFE or similar that you just replaced the piston head .

I think all the BSA stuff was bought by John Knibbs International .Google him .

That is a Mk. 1 Meteor and originally the piston washer was leather. That one has been modified. Dunno what with, I have only ever rebuilt Mk.1’s.

The back plate off and change the buffer. 6quid usually. Looks similar to every aftermarket piston you can buy off ebay or online. A guy in Australia does better units where its a bolt on the back instead of the useless slip washer bsa used.

Has anyone else seen nickel plated Meteors?

I've a mk1 (N prefix so .177") It appears to have been nickel plated for a heck of a long time as there's much wear off on the barrel, It shoots great for such an old gun too!
