    O.k guy’s I have a budget of 2000.00 dollars, I have been doing a lot of research and have narrowed My choices down to 2 gun’s. They are The Beeman HW100SFSB and the BSA R10, now for some help what one would you choose and why?? These 2 guns fall in My budget and still have enough left over to get a scope, pump and pellets and a few other essentials. I have 2 R1’S but I’m tired of replacing mainsprings but the quality of Beeman is outstanding, I have never owned a BSA before and I see there guarantee is only 2 years. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi, both rifles are very accurate and both are beautiful, both are regulated, the hw100 is very heavy but very solid rifle and i like better the quality of the hw, 135cc reseirvoir on the hw, 200cc on the bsa and you can change it for a 470cc carbon fiber bottle, the magazines in the hw are very simple and index perfectly also you can´t double load a pellet in the hw, magazines in the bsa r10 are a little confusing to load but not a problem at all when you learn to do it, the hw has a side lever action smoother than the bolt of  the bsa r10.
    Overall the hw100 is a finest rifle in my opinion, but the r10 is one of the best rifles for the price.
    Sorry for my english but it isn´t my first language.

    They’re both nice I’m sure but I’ve never owned the HW so can’t speak to it or make any real comparisons between the two but I can give a strong endorsement for the R-10. I love mine, effortlessly accurate.

    Just for fun I did a google search for both “BSA R10” and “HW100 FSB”. The R-10 returned 5,660,000 results, the HW100 only returned 28,000 results. Based on that I’d have to guess that the R-10 is a far more popular rifle. I didn’t dig into the results so there could be something skewing it that I’m missing, but it was an interesting footnote I thought. Based on what little I’ve seen on the HW, it has never made it onto my radar as a gun that I’d spend the money on to try. It might be a fine rifle but it lacks whatever it is that draws me to a particular gun. That being said I have a HW97kt springer that shoots lights out when it’s not collecting dust because I’m shooting the PCP’s.  🙂

    All the best with whatever you choose.

    I have both in .177 a r10 in .22 and working on a .25 r10.
    accuracy wise both are equally accurate. the r10 is easily upgradable huma reg, larger bottle.
    the base R10 reg some have a tendancy when fill to max give low fps shots then the reg functions as normal. the huma reg upgrade which is not a requirement removes that one issue and is more efficient. I added a 280cc bottle and just swapped out the bottle valve and that was it. my hw100, I didn’t have to do much to it at all but I lowered the fps. in .22 I can only speak on the r10 and I have not had the problem with the max fill pressure and low shot fps. I will be upgrading the reg and bottle in that. if you go with a 480cc bottle, you will have to mod the stock for it to fit. Both are easy on the ears with the r10 being a little more quiet.
    shot count, my stock r10 was getting 40-45 consistant shots at 20ftlbs after the huma and bottle upgrade 95 shots at 19ftlbs
    stock R10 in .22 40-45 shots at 30ftlbs
    my hw100 .177 stock 55shots 22ftlbs adjusted 65shots at 19ftlbs.
    for the hw100, you can always get a larger tube and use an adapter I have no plans to alter this rifle. both are regulated but I prefer the R10, it’s a bit cheaper in price best bang for the buck in my opinion. when they are set up identically, they perform identical, one being no more accurate than the other.

    Not to confuse the subject but neither of these rifles have been on my radar at all. If my budget is $2000 I would be looking at other rifles There are great reviews (video by Varmintair) for the Cricket carbine. Top that with an Aeon scope and you still have money left over. My .22 is amazingly accurate. Campfussel has it in .177 and .25, see his posts. I would also be looking at a Daystate Regal or Airwolf. FX also has some amazing rifles. I actually took six months to finally decide on a rifle. I looked at every review I could before deciding. Enjoy the process! There are some good post on the R10 on this forum. 
    Best of luck!
