Never shot before and I am after rabbits. Basically I want one that folds and is spring loaded?
I do not like the gas ones but I want somthing good. Help!

I'd strongly reccomend a BSA Lightening de luxe. 'Scope and very good quality Lazer fitted. Complete with long, hard plastic gun case. - 300 shots through it. Disgustingly accurate. Sample targets available to demonstrate this fact. Cost four hundred pounds to bring home from the shop, fully equipped like that. Now sat in Hull.

Just go on Google and ask it for reviews of these things. After the first 100 or a 1,000 reviews giving it 10/10, ye'll get bored and just accept what's what ;)

Why for sale? Because I'm not allowed to shoot living targets with it in Eire :( Damn good rifle, going to waste.



De Luxe Version


You Know it makes sense! :good:

Easy to tune up to 30ft lbs, providing you have the relevant FAC, unless you want to do 10 years inside, that is.

i had a lightning xl but i got bored and upgraded to pcp. I paid £200 for the bsa 2 months later the best i could get back for it was £120. :/

if you go for the lightning make sure you buy either a silicon cleaning cloth or some gun metal oil since the finish becomes pitted with even the lightest moisture/fingerprints.
