BSA R10 Review
BSA R-10 rifles, sometimes referred to as the R10 mk3, are some of the best-looking bottle PCP air rifles on the market with a comprehensive range of stocks, including left-hand options, to choose from, all of which are fitted with an adjustable shoulder pad. The R-10 SE is available as a ‘Standard’ rifle and a ‘Super Carbine,’ which is shorter but offers the same number of shots from the steel air bottle. The third product in the range is the R-10TH, which is also available in two lengths. All models feature a ‘Customer Configurable Shroud’ system which allows the gun to be used with or without the barrel shroud. Despite the lack of a carbon fibre bottle option, the R-10 SE is relatively light, tipping the scales at just over three kilos unscoped and is available in .177, .22 and .25 calibres. The R-10TH is a little heavier and comes in .177 or .22. The magazine system is very reliable taking 10 shots in .177 and .22 and eight in .25. BSA also offers a range of high-power options up to 30 ft. lbs for SE variants. The R-10TH is available in 12 ft. lbs. only. All models use a bolt to cock the action and have BSA’s renowned Cold Hammer Forged barrels. The regulator on the R-10 SE and R-10TH is uprated from earlier Mk1 and Mk2 models offering increased shot count and better reliability.
