Range time with the BSA Century.

A bit of history for you…..
Whilst initially advertised as a “Match” target rifle, when introduced in 1955, the BSA Century never entirely lived up to that description.

Make no mistake, these are fine, pretty and sturdy little rifles. Many were used by schools, in the latter half of the 1950s, for junior cadet practice, prior to the youngsters progressing on to the Lee-Enfield No.8 and the .303″CF S.M.L.E., on the full-bore range

This model was as typically well made and long-lasting as most Birmingham Small Arms Company small-bore rifle production; but it was unable to shrug off its sporting design heritage.The action was based on that of the Supersport Five sporting rifle, and therefore perhaps not quite as capable for target use as other contemporary equipment – the early BSA Martini Internationals in particular; but even a Model 12/15 rifle of 19?? vintage would, in capable hands, almost certainly exceed the performance of the Century.
