Although BSA pioneered the modern spring-piston rifle, they have never rested on their accomplishments. They continue to develop, relying primarily on world-renowned airgun specialist John Bowkett’s knowledge. The Lightning XL SE has a wide range of applications, including hunting, pest control, spinners, paper targets, and target shooting. The integrated silencer reduces the noise generally produced by springers of equivalent power, which is useful while hunting in bigger groups or if your airgun range is in your garden in the city. BSA spring-piston air rifle models are subjected to a rigorous 10,000-shot test before being disassembled to assess how they hold up. Everything that doesn’t last gets improved so that it does.
Lightning XL SE
The most recent version of this tremendously popular rifle sets the sports performance standard even further. The top-of-the-line XL boasts all of the power and precision that have made the Lightning a legend, as well as a BSA barrel produced in Birmingham.
The XL stock is completely checkered at the grip and fore end, with a vented butt pad to guarantee stable shoulder contact. The carbine barrel is completely silenced by a slimline silencer, and the improved, two-stage, adjustable trigger system gives you complete control over every shot. When you combine all of the qualities that sent the Lightning to the top of the best-sellers list, it is easy to see why the Lightning XL is already so popular.
