    Wow, looks like the price on that BSA on Amazon dropped almost another $30 bucks. It’s down to $758 with free shipping. Good luck with whatever you choose and let us know how you liked your friends wildcat.

    All the best,

    Not sure but my .22 is good for at least 40 before I need to refill.

    Amazon uses a pricing algorithm. Below lists highest and lowest prices offered for the BSA R10.

    Go to:  http://camelcamelcamel.com to check it out. You can also set a price alert to let you know when an items hits your price point. I ordered 1 at the current price $758.
    There you can see the data graphically. 

    Due to schedules I could not hook up and check out the FX WC. soon to happen I hope.

    Do I need to order specific height scope rings for a BSA R10 Mk2? I have a set of 30mm x 11mm. I am planning on starting off with a mid range scope I already have. I will be using it pretty much at 30 yards in my backyard so I don’t think I will need to go with a $400 Hawke.

    Also for backyard use will I need to add a suppressor?

    Love my Hatsan At44 .22, I don’t think there is anything better out there for the price. Did not try the Marauder tho, but I don’t like the wai it looks.

    I’ve had all three, BSA R10, Hatsan AT-44 long qe, and a .25 gen 2 Marauder. The Marauder was my least favorite of the 3 and I got rid of it almost immediately, I really liked the Hatsan, especially the accuracy for the money, but the BSA, which is the only one of the three that I won’t be selling, is in another class from the Hatsan and the Marauder. Great choice, I can’t imagine you’ll be disappointed. The BSA stock is a pretty quiet gun. I can’t imagine you won’t be able to shoot it in your back yard.

    Here’s a really recent review that Giles from across the pond did. I think it about sums it up how great the gun is for the money.

    Regards,
    Cliff

    What exactly is Amazon selling on the BSA link in this thread? Is it a black poly rifle? The pic is wood with a scope but the description doesn’t mention either.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    From what I’ve read, the black wrap is a plastic coated beech wood stock. I’d love to have an R10 myself, but I’m not willing to invest in a carbon fiber tank. I currently shoot low fill pressure Marauders and charge with 3300 psi scuba tanks, the BSA’s all seem to use 3300 psi fills.

    I received the R10 .177 from Amazon yesterday. Really nice fit and finish, it is the black wrap. The box had been opened and the fill adapter and manual were not in the box.

    Not off to a good start. It came pre charged to about 200 bar so I took it out and fired it a couple of times. It is definitely backyard quite. The trigger is great. I then took my bolt action Ruger .22 with subsonic CCI’s and a Huntertown Arms suppressor out to compare.  That setup is 2x quieter and about 3lbs lighter than the R10. I live in the county so firearms are legal as long as the noise does not bother the neighbors. The gun to me is too heavy – 9lbs without bi pod and scope.

    Bottom line: nice gun, I’m pretty sure it will outshoot the Ruger at 35yrds. but I did not realize my 3k tank would also need to be upgraded so I returned it. I have yet to try a friend’s FX WC. Maybe the cool factor of that gun will get me into the PCP world. I really appreciate all of the comments I have learned a lot.

    I am also in the PCP market-I have springers, FWB 124, AA prosport-all 177 and a NP22 for a shed gun.  I’m in the suburbs on big lots around 4 1/2 acres and a shoot a lot of starlings, so I don’t want my projectiles bothering my neighbors.  I also happen to have a couple of scuba tanks (from another hobby). I really like the finish on my AA pro sport and was looking at their S500 or 510 series-comments on them or suggestions.  I’ve also considered the marauder, but sure looks like you end up putting more money into the gun especially if I wanted it regulated.
