BSA R12 CLX PRO Air Rifle - Black Pepper
By Taking the success of the CLX 160CE and crossing it with the precision instrument that is the BSA R10TH we now have the basis of a new breed of neo-traditional rifle style from BSA. The R12 CLX rifle features a Minelli stock based on the original TH platform for that ultra-luxurious feel.
As this is a CLX model it uses our 12-shot magazine system with the additional safety features of a ‘cocked’ indicator, and for the first time on a standard production rifle we have introduced a side leaver action. Air efficiency has improved with an all-new regulator, and we have maintained the standard 288cc Air Bottle for this model. Changes at the fore end of the stock mean that for the first time, a 400cc bottle can also be used without any modification and will be available soon as an aftermarket accessory. Also, by adjusting the position of the pre fitted Sling studs, a Bi-pod can now be fitted without interfering with the position of the Quick fill system.
It's not all looks though, the R12 now features some performance upgrades as well as some much welcomed quality-of-life upgrades!
The R12 new features:
- A spring-assisted Side-Leaver married to the all-new mono-block receiver
- The CLX's anti-double indexing 12-shot magazine system.
- A completely redesigned R-regulator and 232 Bar 288cc aluminium bottle with an approximate shot count of 200 shots per fill (calibre dependent).
- Stunning Black Pepper Minelli rifle stock
After checking they had one in stock, I ordered & then went to collect a new BSA R12 rifle. The email response to my enquiry was quick & the service once I arrived was excellent. The fact that I’m being asked for my feedback a week or so later shows that Ronnie Sunshine cares. I’d happily recommend them to friends & look forward to another visit in the New Year.
