    All things BSA

    Said this in another post that it looks like we might need a thread on all things BSA.

    So if you have one post it up any history personal our otherwise

    A CF2 was the second rifle I ever brought. In .270. Just loved the bolt on it....but not how my fillings feel out when ever I let squeezed the trigger.

    So I brought another at auction with set triggers two years ago. Rebarreled it to 7x57
    Have posted these pics before but here the are again.
    Cheers Sideshow

    I have a number of older BSA rifles, namely a .222 Hunter with mint barrel and a few rifles that I have built on BSA actions, such as a 6mm on a viscount action. I currently have two actions - a 270 Imperial and a 308 Viscount that I will rebarrel and restock in fancy walnut. I have quite a few parts such as firing pins if anyone is looking for parts.

    @garyp I got my walnut from this guy. Rifle Blanks | New Zealand Walnut
    Good to deal with and nice selection of blanks.
    Might need a part list to this new thread

    I have a BSA .270 ( I can see everyone raising their crucafix's), not my favorite calibre, but great with 110gr pro-hunters. It is a nice rifle, I'll put up a photo eventually. I am trying to establish wether it is the last of the hand-cut barrels, or the first of the hammer-forged. It has the letter "V" in the l/h of the cross, making it 1970, or 71, depending on who you believe. The trigger-guard and floor-plate are steel,and it has twin feed-ramps machined in the action. The cocked-button, on the top of the rear-bolt, is red plastic, not brass..Any knowlede would be appreciated, Dave

    Plastic ah that's a new one. Year some pics would be interesting.
    You sure it's a V and not a poorly stamped M?
    I've not seen V in the serial numbers before.

    Could it be that the barrel is off a century bolt action target rifle?

    I don’t have a BSA, but have been searching for a Lee Speed for some time. So if you see one...
    More meplat, more better.

    Majestic and IIRC first pattern monarch have a small red plastic button that pops up when in the cocked position.


    I have a couple of BSA based rifles. Cant find other pics for some reason.

    A 222 hunter, rebarreled with a vulcan, ( top notch barrel, as good as any of the bartliens or kreigers etc Iv had) Stock was refurbished by Kevin Gascill

    A Majestic. Was a worn out 308 now wears a trueflight PT in 243ai. Original stock was beyond repair so Kevin built a new one for me. Has been a lot of fun and its a very effective cartridge with the 105 vlds.
