Will this conversion fit the XL Lightining?

Just bought myself a Tactcal XL for christmas, and i love it :yes:

What are the main advantages of the gas ram then?(this is my first air rifle.

Another question actually lads, are the BSA Supertens as good as they look, i want one!

not stricktly true...its still running a piston inside, so you will still get velocity variations, no airgun ever made will run at the same velocity, shot to shot. Downside to the gas ram is a different recoil, personally i dont like it [ i briefly owned a fenman] and they are reknowned for snapping reticle,s in scopes. However, the supersport conversion, is the one that most everyone seems to be happy with, maybe it just suits the gun well.Also, the weirauch 90 with the gas ram, is a real sweet gun to shoot, so they obviously suit some guns more than others.

You'll either love the way it shoots or hate the way it shoots, with the conversion. Personally I'm not a fan.

Well, I bought a second hand HW90K yesterday (Theoben Gas Ram) and WOW!, very impressed!, shot a basic springer alongside it today (a rifle I love) and it seemed almost tinny.

So for me, gas ram is a definite YES...........Al :thumbs-up:

I also have a bsa lightening and also have been thinking about converting my gun,any idea how much this would cost, and is it possible to get a multyshot thingy fitted so you can shoot of a few without reloading ...thanks :victory:

im very pleased with it al it cost £45 to do the barrel i had the silencer on a stingray first but it made the barrel way to long and looked stupid so i sold the stingray and bought a 90 k
