Lightning XL

The BSA Lightning XL is based on what is probably the most popular British made spring rifle of recent times. The action is silimar to the tried and tested favorite that has graced the hunting field since it's introduction in the late 90's, but the similarity ends there.

Internally the XL has utilized new technologies with a synthetic spring guide, improved dampener sleeve and upgraded mainspring which results in a higher overall performance. The stock has been stylishly re-designed to improve further the balance and handling of the rifle, with a higher cheek piece which raises the natural head position for better eye to scope alignment; while scopes are mounted on BSA's patented Maxigrip scope rail, with it's built in shock absorption system. Crisply chequered panels on the pistol grip and forend ensure a secure hold, while under the pistol grip the world famous BSA Piled Arms logo has been engraved as a subtle reminder of the companies proud heritage. The barrel has been shrouded in a full length, permanently attached bull barrel moderator which tapers purposely towards the breech, and helps give the XL that famous stability "on aim" for which BSA rifles are rightly famed. But perhaps the biggest change is the trigger which has been completely re-engineered to offer the shooter control which is truly breathtaking. A two stage precision unit which is adjustable for the individual shooters preferred weight of pull, this trigger is a masterpiece which must be experienced to be fully appreciated.
