  • BSF air rifle

    My father left me his .22 cal BSF air rifle (among other toys) when he passed away and I have been trying to find information on them ever since.

    All I know is that it is much older than me (47), is a break barrel style and obviously that it is a BSF.

    I have tried Google with limited success - can anyone help?

    Never heard of BSF, I had a BSA air rifle. I'm sure one of the AR gurus will be by soon to help.
    Not suitable for mature audiences

      Funny thing was, for all the annual renewals of my fathers licence (for as long as I can remember) and on my licence, it has been labeled as a "BSA" when the make is clearly "BSF". I have tried to correct this with the WAPOL but no luck yet

    I have a BSF Bavaria B50, and I had a B55 back in the very early '80s - and wish I still had it. They are very good guns, but went out of business in the mid '80s. I have a bit of info in a couple of books. PM me and I'll send you some scans.

    In the meantime, can you give us a bit more detail? It should have a model number on it somewhere (on the breech block if it's a break barrel). Better still, is there any chance of some photos?

      I think towards the end Weihrauch bought BSF (or did I just make that up ?)

      Good guns though

    Thanks for your input guys.

    Over the weekend I will get some photos posted and any identifying marks etc.

    I haven't fired the rifle for years but I have memories of it being quite accurate and with plenty of power and the main spring taking a bit of effort to cock.

      Here is some more info :

      Serial # A3004
      Stamped on the receiver are several items as per the attached photos:





      From the photos, it looks to have an adjustable trigger and a low serial number. It also has stamped on the cylinder “Made in Germany West” and the BSF logo on the top of the cylinder.

      It looks close to the model 30 except it has an “a” prefix on the serial number (it is definitely a 22) and it has a windage adjustment on the rear sight.

    It's a BSF Media, Dale. One of the scans I sent you shows a page from a BSF catalogue (in German, unfortunately) that list this model. I've seen one of these before but never shot one, so it would be interesting to know how it performs.

      Hopefully I will get a chance to put it over the chrono at Christmas time. re-doing the stock at the moment to give it a bit of a birthday (and practicing for my lithgow model 12).
      I also found this advert after doing a little more search following your prompt on the weekend
