BSA Air Rifle

A classic BSA 0.177 improved model D air rifle made between Dec 1913 and Sept 1914 and despatched from the factory between Dec 1913 and May 1917.

Serial No. S75832, PAT No. 30338-10

The S in the serial number indicates the action is fitted with a double sear trigger

The BSA stock is, I’m told, a later stock from the 1930’s due to the BSA logo being in the chequering and the rear sight is not original (probably from an Airsporter or Cadet), but it will be original if I can find a No.10 rear sight for it.

My thanks go to the BSA Owners club and the AirgunBBS forums for their help with this rifle.

      You can google John Knibbs and get his phone number. He has the original manuals for these guns. He charges £25 for the service which he donates to a charity.
