BSA METEOR MK 7.
I wonder how many of us diehard airgunners started off with a BSA Meteor? hundreds? thousands? more? The classic Meteor was the ideal starter air rifle, mid power range of 8 to 9 ft pounds energy, a great stock that seemed to suit whoever picked it up, a good sensitive trigger, add to that its lightweight of around six and a half pounds and its inherent accuracy...BSA had a sure fire winner on its hands!
Sadly most of us eventually outgrew the Meteor and went in search of bigger heavier and more powerful air rifles, those that did not pass down this rifle to our own sons usually part exchanged the Meteor for a new gun, although BSA still produce and sell the standard Meteor they have recently introduced a bang up to date version known as the MK 7, the new gun is everything that the old model was not, it has a new stock which boasts a raised cheekpiece, nicely cut chequering to its grip and fore end, and a shock absorbing rubber butt plate, its action is silky smooth, very easy to cock, has a great two stage trigger unit, and is a real joy to use, despite the changes the new MK 7 is no heavier than the much older "junior" model, another major difference between the two rifles is their power, as previously stated the older standard Meteor produced 8 to 9ft energy, the new MK 7 pushes out your favourite brand of pellets at a fraction below the 12ft legal limit, is there another air rifle in this class that can out shoot and out perform the new Meteor?...if there is i haven't found one!
Go on and treat yourself to this modern classic, take it from me...you will not be dissapointed!!
