Things I liked:It is short and easily handled. Trigger pull is a little hard out of the box, but can be adjusted. Fit an finish are very good. I heard that the BSA barrels have liners instead of being 1 piece, but seems to be a false rumor. My barrel is cut well, and I cannot see a liner. Uncleaned barrel, accuracy for the first 15 shots at 15 yards is about .100 for 5 shot groups at 805 FPS with a 18.1 JSB, which is 26 ft lbs. I expected it to be at 850 FPS, so this is my only disappointment thus far. I bought the single shot loader and it works very well, and the magazine works perfectly. No bent pellet skirts. I didn't know if the Beech stock would be attractive, but it is nice. The checkering provides excellent grip. The barrel diameter is about .610 inches, which is quite similar to the standard Lothar Walther barrel. The bolt action is smooth and is not scrawny. I like it. The o ring is on the bolt, and not inside the barrel. I really prefer this.
Things I would have changed:A factory shroud would be great because it is loud. You can install a shroud or some other device to quiet it down. There are many on the market. A slightly wider forearm would be nice for shooting from a rest, but is not required. A longer barrel (15 fps per 1 inch) would be a great option. I did not buy the 1200SE, only because I don't like synthetic stocks, and replacing the stock and the gauge mount to fit the wood stock costs another $300. I longer barrel can always be installed on this model, and although longer, it would bring the velocity up.
What others should know:I think the quality is very good. I hope there are no issues to report later. I will give a another report after the trigger is adjusted, the barrel cleaned and after performing other minor housekeeping. I bought this on sale, and for the money, this is really a nice PCP. My other PCPs are modified Theobens, which cost almost 3x this BSA. For the money, this is really a great little PCP.
