BSA R10 MK2 .177
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:59:02 AM »
All I can say is WOW. Ever since I saw these guns I knew I wanted one. Decided to get rid of some guns to purchase this and I'm very happy I did. It looks great but I had something else in mind with the shroud. While it worked fairly well for a .177 I had a Neil Clague that I wanted to use on it and is quite a bit quieter now. The gun is also not pellet picky which is great. I only have 3 pellets but all 3 are capable of sub MOA if I do my part. The black wrap stock is great and exactly what I wanted. With a rubbery texture it's perfect for my hunting situations. Perfect comb height on the stock it's just a gun that fits me very well. Magazines are pretty easy to use and I like the lock in mechanism. Bolt cycles smoothly with not much tension and the trigger is very very good as well. Only a few gripes about it and that's simply with a bipod attached I can not refill it as the probe hole is too close to the bipod to fit. Also using medium height rings and my 44mm bell scope it can not fit with the shroud. Luckily it didn't matter to me as I didn't want the shroud anyways. So those are very minor issues but over all I'm absolutely thrilled with this gun!!





This is my first 10 shots with the gun with 8.4 JSB


All groups shot at 25yds and didn't even clean the barrel since I got it.

One 10 shot group and a 5 shot with 10.3 AA (don't mind the single that was adjusting my scope)


2 more 5 shot groups with 10.3 AA


A 5 shot group with 8gr Polymags


3 5 shot groups this morning left 10.3 AA middle 8.4 JSB right 8gr Polymags

Thanks! Definitely loving it so far. Haven't chronied it but somewhere down the line hoping to upgrade to a HuMa reg. Maybe if I'm lucky send it your way and get some of your magic on it!

What a great gun ! Loved mine. Wished I didn't have to sell it tho it was a .22. Just don't do .177 anymore. Mine would easily do .5" groups at 75 yards if I did my part.

Guild member Critter did some sweet mods on his by adding a slightly larger bottle. Sure he would be more then happy to tell you about it. Personally I loved the balance of mine in stock form but his is real sweet to. He also swapped in a diff reg. I never thought it was needed since the spread was very small from the factory but Tom really got his extreme spread down to about nil with the reg change.

Congrats on the new toy.

Thanks Dave! I've been looking at these for about 6 months. I have seen Critters R10 as well as another members on here and I believe they did HuMa swaps and a 280cc bottle but been awhile since I've seen those posts to know. Yeah this gun can really hold its own. After getting the BSA barreled .22 disco from you I knew I shouldn't be disappointed with accuracy and I was right for sure!

Dairyboy if you left the factory shroud on the gun you could have made it a lot quieter and kept the length shorter than it is. I often wonder why customers remove their shrouds and just use an LDC, the shrouds greatly help get the report down and can keep the overall length of the added LDC to a minimum. Neil.

So far no regrets. It's really a great gun.

Neil I did try it with the shroud and with the LDC and the LDC was actually noticeably quieter. Not sure why but it definitely was and was a hair shorter. Plus the scope and rings I had for the gun didn't fit with the shroud but did without.

I like the .177 since I mainly just shoot targets. Too bad other makers like Taipan don't make a .177 carbine.

I like the .177 for sparrows and such. Larger birds even just as well. This gun is launching the 8.44 JSBs at 990fps and the 10.34 in the 910fps range. Surprisingly both are very accurate even the Polymags are at 1000fps. I do love this gun and reg seems to be doin pretty well

Dairyboy, I see you have a mutant and an R10. Which do you prefer, and which is quieter and more accurate??

Lol X-sight is out of my price range and what I want weight wise.

The Mutant isnt in my hands just yet. Ordered it and then my wife's car broke that's why the WARP had to go cause the Mutant hasn't made it to my hands yet. But I will give a comparison on both once i get it. I feel like it's going to be a great .22 like many others have stated. I can say this I LOVE long rifles and this will be my first bullpup so it will be a learning curve to get used to the feel. So I do know I will still shoot the R10 alot but who knows I might prefer bullpup more once i get it???
