Things I liked:Liked the 0.22cal enough to also buy the 0.177cal version; same action & overall European quality; accuracy is very respectable with quarter sized groups in slight wind when using 10.3g AA Diabolos; again well balanced with a bipod;
Things I would have changed:Synthetic stock is ergonomic but I would gladly pay more for the inherent beauty of a Minelli version in hardwood; planning to Camo at least part of the stock as it already looks tactical in black;
What others should know:The shroud is easily detachable to clean the barrel; ***sweet spot for accurately shooting both versions is below 200 Bar...easy enough with my Hill pump; secure the probe when filling the reservoir; added light Moly grease to receiver rear bolt for smoother action;
Things I liked:Great Value for my First repeater PCP: European BSA, hammer forged barrel, ergonomic synthetic stock with palm swells, good reasonable weight due to shrouded barrel, trigger fine out of box, accurate pressure gauge, precise magazine indexing & bolt action, studs on stock.
Things I would have changed:Lower price for extra magazines; add external power adjuster; shroud to quiet the rifle @ discharge; ability to adjust trigger externally; availability in wood stock;
What others should know:Most should use ear protection when shooting 1200SE; at least 40 shorter range shots from 200 Bar fill (takes good effort with Hill pump); Front heavy but No problem after Bipod placement onto included stud; expect 1 inch groups at 40 - 50 yds with 4-16X scope and correct pellets,
Things I liked:This is my 2nd review. After breaking in, accuracy is still excellent. It shoots JSB 18.1's at 910 fps and velocity is very consistent. It shoots 5 shots into about .075 inches at 20 yards, through the magazine. You don't need to shoot single shot style to get great accuracy. This is a great airgun platform for making some improvements. This model is only sold in the USA.
Things I would have changed:The gun is front end heavy due to the steel air reservoir, so I put the shorter version air reservoir on it, and replaced the spade type brass air fill with an aluminum unit, with a foster fill. The changes cut 1/2 pound from the overall weight and shifted the balance rearward. I like the stock, but don't like the dark color. I replaced it with a green Nato version that BSA has in Europe, and sells through their registered parts provider airgunspares.com. It looks great and the weight is now ok.
What others should know:Despite having a shroud, airflow is not directed rearward into the shroud, and there are no baffles. It is still loud. I installed a few pieces, redirecting the air rearward, and provided for some space for baffles in the same way other PCP airguns are offered in the USA today. It is now backyard friendly. If BSA made a few changes to this model, it would have few competitors.
