    Hows this it was in a old magazine i was thumbing through earlier this week.

    Originally the Sportsman five was a single shot bolt action 22 weighing 5-1/4lbs.,With a length of 42-3/4''overall. later versions included the sportsman five (five shot box magazine) a ten and fifteen with tube under barrel magazines.These rifles had a safety device incorporated into their bolts.By pulling back the bolt and rotating it a quarter turn the action would not fire.
    The sportsman first arrived in 1949 and was very popular with the shooting public.(In commonwealth countries)Early models came with a wheel adjustable rear sight but this was latter replaced with a ratchet type .Blade front sights were standard.Production ceased with the production of the super sport 5 circa 1955.

    My dad had one they have a strait bolt handle and no dovetail so mounting a scope will take a smith my dads was stolen in the mid eighty's so i didn't get to use or inherit it.The super sport 5 is a much more refined model with adjustable trigger better stock A shorter heavier barrel latter models were grooved for scopes.

    BSAs history is much to large to put into one post so I would advise a trip to wikipedia to find out more I have just sold two .22s and would like to purchase a BSA .22 martini target rifle for my collection.

    BSA Martini International Mk4....what a sweet rifle!

    It always amazed me how much they weigh for their size!

    The old BSA rifles were always a good buy.

    A quick net search turned this up:

    Thanks RB, that reveiw sounded pretty positive about the rifle. It looks like a basic but nice .22LR.
