Here are the benefits of a gas piston:

  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring


BSA's GRT Lightning XL SE air rifle was first introduced in 2012. You'll find lots of practical uses for it. Hunting, pest elimination, spinners, paper targets and plinking are all within your reach when you own this airgun. The integral silencer helps reduce the report normally discharged by springers of similar power, giving you a stealthier approach when trying to dispatch more than one critter. It's also nice that your neighbors may not even be aware that you're shooting in your own backyard.

If you've never shot a gun with a gas ram, you're going to miss some things--like that familiar twang you've come to expect every time you pull the trigger on a springer. And that's just the beginning.

Ever try to shoot a springer in the dead of winter when it's 5 degrees and ice is covering everything? The lube on a metal mainspring will be so thick, you may not be able to cock your rifle. But with a gas ram, there's no lube and no mainspring to be bound up. Just cock and shoot...no matter what the temperature is!

Most important is the lack of stress on the gas ram. While a coiled metal mainspring will deteriorate as it's left cocked, your gas ram won't care how long you leave it cocked. It'll continue to function perfectly.

BSA invented the modern spring-piston gun, but they've never stopped to rest on their laurels. They continue to innovate, relying heavily on the expertise of world-renowned airgun expert John Bowkett.

Things I liked: Ordered 2/11 delivered 2/16, arrived well packaged and with no package damage. Very good looking rifle. Appreciated PA advise as their recommended scope rings are far more stable than those that came with the separately ordered scope. Initial impressions after about 200 rounds, free free hand seated and standing; cocking effort minimal, (I am 62 years old in ok shape); recoil, what recoil (for the past 40 years have shot mostly 12 ga shotgun (skeet and trap, duck and pheasant hunting), 30-06 for boar and deer, and 9mm handgun, really cannot describe it as having recoil); noise, minimal much less than 22 lr more of a low snap as opposed to the loud crack of 22 lr; very pleased with Initial accuracy, (impressive despite free handing, after adjusting scope, at 25 yards all on target with good groups, more variance than I want at 50 yds (should tighten up with more rounds through the barrel and more practice; so for now I am rating the accuracy as excellent.

Things I would have changed: Minor point, needed to shim the scope, made my own. Could do without the large GRT carved in the stock. Other than that it seems to be a fine hunting rifle.

What others should know: The 37.5 inch length is perfect for my size 5'9" and intended use; squirrel hunting in thick forest.

Things I liked: The looks and feel are great I liked the short barrel gave the gun a carbine look . Adequate power for close rang small game hunting in .22 caliber , and back yard friendly .

Things I would have changed: The trigger .

What others should know: The trigger on my gun was awful I could not adjust the second stage to where I like It . It must have had a 6ib pull , I think They fit a Gamo trigger on these rifles which are plastic something I didn't know at the time . This gun deserves a match grade trigger If It had I might have been able to hit something. Maybe It was just my gun I don't know....But I sent It back to PA for a refund . I cant give any stars for accuracy cus the trigger was so bad . Bought a Pro Sport .22 instead .

  • Old Gunny from USA asked:

    gun is louder than I thought. Is there a quieter silencer available?

    • Old Gunny from USA:

      researched it and you can't get any nice BSA sliencers shipped to USA due to our gun laws....

  • Richard from USA asked:

    Barrel made in England-assembled in Spain, so where are the rest of the parts made?!

    • Ernest from USA:

      old question. what did PA come up with? see their answer? =no

    • Ernest from USA:

      To Richard interesting question that I don't have an answer for. The answer should be Spain but let's see what PA comes up with.

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    Michel did you check out one piece mounts? PA has Leapers Accushot which are not heavy price wise and they have four screws per ring, a real plus.

    • Tyler from USA:

      I concur, a one piece mount with a stop pin would be a great choice.
