BSA Buccaneer air rifle
*If you cannot fill your gun to 3,365 psi because your fill device is limited to 3,000 psi output, you can still shoot this air gun. You just won't get as many shots per fill.
The SILENTIUM is BSA's latest and most technologically advanced noise reduction system to date. Integrated into the muzzle of each rifle barrel SILENTIUM allows the pellet to pass freely while effectively reducing the majority of noise expansion. This clever new design dissipates significantly more sound than ever before through its internal air chambers, thus suppressing noise expansion up to 82% when compared to standard muzzle report.
Made in Birmingham, England, the BSA Buccaneer SE air rifle delivers remarkable accuracy that will please you and astound your friends!
Featuring the Silentium suppressor, shooting has never been this quiet!
Whether you plan to shoot field target, plink in the backyard or take out some pesky vermin making a home in your vegetable garden, the Buccaneer is up to the job. Fill up the air reservoir to 232 bar, and you'll get a LOT of shots before you need to fill up, again.
While everyone else is trying to cut corners and get rid of the features that made their guns popular, BSA continues to supply guns with superior aesthetics, beautiful stockwork and deep bluing.

Things I liked: -Great feel when pulling the bolt, compared to the mess of a bolt that comes with the gauntlet -Wood stock is solid and gives the rifle a fantastic feel and weight -Accuracy was very good @ 25 & 50 yards *(Did not test beyond 50 yards) - PA's Deal with a 209$ Hawke Vantage IR 4-12x50mm + high mount UTG scope rings (~15/20$) FOR FREE is simply a deal I cannot pass up! Makes this Rifle go from 399$ to roughly 180$. -Gamo Style magazine works very well and seems to cycle pellets smoothly -As a hand pumper I can say for roughly 55 quality shots, this cylinder is not that bad to fill up while using an Air Venturi/Hill MK4 pump
Things I would have changed: -When my first BSA Buccaneer arrived it was leaking from the manometer when I attempted my first fill with my hand pump. While this might be on purpose from the manufacturer, still something that should be noted for the owner. (No mention in the manual that I could find) -Manometer seems to read a little inconsistently up to 1500~1800 psi but catches up and reads alright after this point. -The Integrated Silentium moderator does help reduce noise but might not be enough for backyard plinking in the suburbs. It comes off a touch sharp.
What others should know: So why did I buy this rifle twice? I felt that the included deal with the Hawke Vantage IR scope made this decision simple. I essentially saw this as buying full price for an absolute gem of a scope and getting the air gun for 180$. Now if this deal wasn't going on would I still buy this rifle? That's a tough question, a great wood stock, good but not perfect bolt, and well above average accuracy to 50 yards bundled together do show this rifle being reasonable at the 399$ price point. As long as this deal is avaible I would suggest you to jump on it before it ends!
Things I liked: This is an amazingly powerful in .25 caliber. Don't let the fps fool you, its a hammer. The trigger that everyone complains about is way better than the say. True it has a lot of pull, but if you go slow it breaks like a .25 lb target trigger. The is pcp built to last. Great wood. Hole in hole accuracy at bench rest and nice shooting stand at 25 yards. All i need for the squirrel woods.
Things I would have changed: I don't like fill probes...but thats me.
What others should know: People say this is an entry level air guns, but this is thing is and looks like it should cost way more. Buy it, you'll not be disappoint.
Things I liked: This model is a nice gun at the $299 price point. I have an BSA R10 SE in 22 and (top of line) and this gun in 25. Both guns are fine guns, but this one is about 25% of the cost. So you can expect a few compromises. However, the compromises are quite acceptable. This gun shoulders very well, better than the R10 and is a better field gun being lighter and easy to handle. Without the moderator it is also shorter. It looks nice and is well finished for a gun at this price point, and beech is a good hard wood, unlike poplar or other woods used on low end guns. But it does not have the R10 aesthetics. I like the fact that it has the same pressure gage as the higher end R10. I was able to print all 8 in a penny sized area using JSB 25.39 at 25 yards. I'm still working on loads so ultimate accuracy is perhaps not yet attained. The safety ahead of the trigger is easily set or removed during firing.
Things I would have changed: Many reviewers complain about the plastic Gamo trigger. Actually, it isn't bad at all. With good shooting skills, you can do well with this trigger. I bought a GRT-4G after market trigger to install. As this gun is less expensive, I'm more willing to do modifications than to do the same to the R10, which is super right out of the box. The magazine on the 25 is not nearly as good as those BSA makes for 177 and 22. This must be compromise to use the same overall physical envelope with a bigger pellet. It would be nice if it had sling swivels on it from the factory. Some reviews have complained about the plastic cap on the fill probe area. It snaps nicely into place and closely matches the finish of the gun. The plastic parts (trigger, cap) may be a long term (15+ year) liability. My plan for optimizing: 1) CDT trigger; (2) Huma-Air Regulator, (3) Hatsan air stripper. While not really required, but optimizing this gun is part of my hobby explorations, (4) Sling swivels perhaps
What others should know: Replacing the muzzle brake with a moderator or silencer is a big challenge and done right technically and legally, expense. Don't buy this one if you need a quiet gun. Develop a magazine loading technique wherein the pellets don't fall through to the other side. Don't bother with hollow point pellets, as they will loose velocity too fast. Stick with heavy pellets with good ballistic coefficients and delivery some punch to the target. Don't try to use your R10 fill probe on this gun - - the fill probes are not interchangeable. Doing so, you will blow an O ring off the probe and lodge it in the fill probe hole. Be careful checking pressure - don't look down the barrel, and also insure that the gun is not armed.
