    Things I liked:Solid feel. Bolt action is smooth and has the feeling of precision. I cleaned the barrel and adjusted the trigger before shooting, and 5 18.1 grain .22 JSBs shoot into less than .025" at 15 yards at 890 fps (31.8 ft lbs).I filled the reservoir to 195 bar. I also own a BSA SE, and just did a review on it, and have been comparing them. Both are very accurate, and I attribute it largely to the BSA forged barrel. I like the BSA feel. Solid but not too heavy. The air reservoir is steel, not aluminum, which adds weight but adds to the solid feel. The SE 1200 has a very slim feel due to the not-so-wide synthetic stock. Also, the magazine is metal, not plastic, feeds smoothly with no bent pellet skirts.
    Things I would have changed:The synthetic stock is better than I thought, and feels better than it looks, but I would like it to be about 3 or 4 inches longer. The shroud looks great, but does not reduce much sound. There is only about 1.75" of open space between the end of the barrel and the end of the shroud, with no baffles. As a result, it is loud. The barrel support at the muzzle does not direct any air back into the shroud. Directing air back into the shroud would quiet it down somewhat, and there is room for 1 baffle. "As is", it is not backyard friendly.
    What others should know:The air reservoir on the SE 1200 is 4" longer than on the standard SE, giving the SE 1200 a volume of about 218 cc. As a result the front end is slightly heavy vs. the standard SE, however the synthetic stock isn't wide, making it very easy to hold on to. The 1200 SE air gauge matches the readings on my tank gauge. The Standard SE wood stock is beautiful, and I am cautious not to scar it. The synthetic stock on the 1200 SE has the advantage of being less prone to damage. I purchased the 1200 SE expecting to harvest parts over time for my Standard SE and to use it's shroud, however I have changed my plans. These are 2 of my most consistently accurate airguns. I would give them an 5+ if BSA had made them quiet.

    Things I liked:First I love bsa rifle....best accuracy...meg no issue...nice pellet loading.....good centering...high velocity and deep penetration...max shot count(one fill 100 shots)overall not bad but only good.
    Things I would have changed:bsa quality checking I think very bad....because I fill the air at hill pump(230 bar) fire 8 pellet the 9th pellet is stack...and gun hammer part is jammed....finally I open the gun the circlelock (near regulater)is not proper fit so I purchase that circlelock Hardware shop(near 320 km)then fit my problem was clear(I am in india so I can't claims warranty).....2end no power adjustment....otherwise gun is good
    What others should know:pls check and buy....one fill 100 shot....this gun is 30% air saving .....accuracy is 60 yard one inch groping...I will give five star...but that circlelock issue so I give 4 star only.
