If you like a precharged pneumatic that gets lots of shots between fills, the BSA Scorpion 1200 SE in .177 caliber is the gun you need. It's powerful, and BSA barrels are hammer-forged and know for being quite accurate. And isn't accuracy the most important thing you look for in an air gun?

Things I liked: Everything

Things I would have changed: For the price you will not do better

What others should know: Something I forgot to add in my previous review, I have fired 4 types of pellets through my gun crossman hp , crossman premier, Jsb excact, & Jsb excact jumbo heavy , all are very accurate but when cycling the cross mans they are usually a bit stiff, this is definitely the pellets not the gun as the jsbs are very smooth, the jabs are more accurate but the gun is not pellet fussy very very accurate & as the saying goes accuracy is all

Things I liked: Everything this is a very well designed and put together gun , very very accurate, nice trigger very happy with my first pcp

Things I would have changed: So it's a little on the loud side, not a problem for me , some say a little heavy, I find it ok

What others should know: This is my first pcp but not my first air rifle or rifle, the finish on this gun is good the fit is excellent, I'm more of a walnut stock kind of guy, I find most synthetic stocks cheap plastic junk the stock on this gun doesn't feel cheap at all it feels nice the gun has a slim feel to it & slightly muzzle heavy , in short I'm very happy I bought this gun it's nice , the trigger is very good very slight creep in the second stage & nice clean brake ( I haven't tried to adjust it yet probably won't). If this gun had a high end finish on the metal work , a walnut stock , adjustable power, & the barrel was ported into the shroud the only reason why it would not be a $1300 gun is that you can get one without all that for between $700 & $850 depending on sale prices , I went back and forth deciding weather to get this gun I'm so glad I did I love it

Things I liked: this rifle is beautiful, cocking system, the magazines,the craftsmanship.

Things I would have changed: this rifle is super heavy when you put the scope is around the 13 or 14 pound. The accuracy is respectable i shoot with some different pellets, jsb 10.3, daisy crap pellets, H&N brracuda hunter 10.3, H&N barracuda 10.6 and H&N barracuda hunter extreme 9.3. the jsb make a group about 1/2 inch , the daisy make a group about 3 inches there where fliying every where except the target and they don circle good in the magazine so i just only shoot 4 pellets, the h&n 10.6 was the same as the jsb, and the hunter and the hunter extreme make a group about the same size of the pellet. Thats not good because those pellet are expensive. the distance was about 30 yards. the cocking is really smooth and the rifle fill very well made. one thing i dont like is the floating barrel, because you can bend a little the barrel and touch the air reservoir.

What others should know: the rifle waste a lot of air, the best group was when hi have about 190 -180 bar or less. the trigger is very smooth and you can have a accident if you dont put it in safe.

  • Edgar from USA asked:

    Does anyone know if I can de-cock this rifle??

    • Tyler from USA:

      Sure, you definitely can. Once the rifle is cocked, all you need to do is pull the bolt back, hold it and pull the trigger. You will hear the sear release and you will be able to ease the bolt forward to relieve the hammer spring tension. I would recommend always removing the magazine when you do this so you don't accidentally double load it if your mag isn't empty.

  • Raymond from USA asked:

    Hi What kind of bipod can I use for the rifle??

    • Stanley from USA:

      I used a Caldwell XLA 9 TO 13 model on mine also has a sling attachment point built in . Can be had at Big 5 sporting goods.

  • mark from USA asked:

    what is the difference between the scorpion se and the scorpion 1200 se other than the larger air cylinder ? $150 difference between the 2 models --

    • Stanley from USA:

      The scorpion SE 1200 uses a 24 inch barrel that is shrouded , producing more f.p.s. 1000 / 1200 f.p.s. compared to the SE s 800 / 1000 f.p.s. The SE uses an 18 inch barrel ( not shrouded ) . The SE version is a pound lighter and 8 inches shorter as well as using a shorter air cylinder 130cc ( lower shot count ) compared to 172ccs . The SE is also slightly louder because it is not shrouded.
