    Ive been waiting weeks...release date keeps moving back tho, so bought an hft500 instead, think I will wait and see what first batch are like...as even tho I use bsa R10's and ultras., I'd wait and see what actual reg etc is used...originally it was an r10 reg now we told diff..as for manafacture ,they say England! But I'm not overly convinced;)

    Are the barrels on these likely to be similar to other BSA 0.177 barrels and won't group with the JSB/AA range? All the 0.177 barrels I've had won't touch the JSB/AA stuff. The best pellets have always been Bis Mags which most folk won't want to use for target stuff due to trajectory.

    You have half a chance with Premier style pellets and Defiants ( which have just gone to Germany ).

    When I spoke to BSA about this they always say ... the rifles you have are hunting rifles ... not target rifles ... so use the Magnums.

    This gun looks aimed at HFT? Most target shooters use the JSB/AA pellets. Have BSA addressed this with the 0.177 barrels?

    The old 0.22 barrels didn't seem pellet fussy but the 0.177 were/are very much so. Even Bowkett accepts this and started offering a replacement imported barrel for target shooters on his blueprinted S10's. He now doesn't seem keen on that when I recently spoke to him as it's a lot of trouble.

    Nope, definitely a goldstar serial number one! It was Simon Harrison shooting it who's been a bsa stalwart for years!

    I'm surprised, as bsa say it's a dedicated target rifle...so why a .22 ??

    Mick is correct, Goldstar serial number 1 was at the Chesterfield round of the DMHS on Sunday being shot by Simon Harrison. That rifle has been trialed by a few people ;) to give BSA some experienced feed back over the last couple of weeks. It is great! They will be available very soon in both .177 and .22 in both multi or single shot configuration. There has been a hold up on the most popular stock choice, the grey laminate.
    The .177 barrel with the enhanced hammer forge process is great, Roger Lait has been using one all this year with some great results taking trophies in the UK's and World HFT comps. And the .22 has always been amongst the best .22 barrels!

    I am really looking forward to getting one now, I wasnt that keen on the stock visually at first but the amount of directions the cheek piece hamster and butt pad are adjustable in meens you can make it fit and touch you in all the right places, I love it now!

    Not long now! And its got to be a grey one, Sorry Cracked black pepper! :D
