years, air guns have been powered by a metal main spring which
when compressed and then released produces the energy to propel
the pellet down the barrel. BSA have taken their top selling models
the Lightning and Lightning XL with their SE refinements and powered
it using a different “engine” - a pneumatic ram filled
with inert nitrogen. This is Gas Ram Technology.
The GRT Lightning
XL SE has all the new and improved features that its spring-powered
sister has. A new two-stage trigger gives a crisp release with
minimal pressure. A new stock has been designed with attractive
chequering at the key touch points of fore-end and pistol grip.
A slim-line silencer encases the barrel and reduces the sound
of muzzle blast, whilst a ventilated butt pad ensures comfortable
contact with the shooter’s shoulder.
An addition to all
these features the gas ram provides further benefits that enhance
the shooter’s experience. The gas ram does not vibrate when
discharged resulting in less gun movement when the trigger is
pulled; the pellet exits the barrel at a faster speed resulting
in better accuracy; the gas ram has a greater life expectancy
than a spring with less likelihood of performance deterioration
through metal fatigue whilst the cocking action is smoother and
We are pleased to announce
that here at Redbeck Shooting Supplies we now have received stock
