    See previous thread on this subject!
    I see lots of Ads for the Scorpion K, but is the full length rifle version still in production?
    I think I prefer full length because of the shot reduction in carbine, especially in 177, and also prefer the look of the full rifle.
    Would a 177 scorpion (single shot) be ok for HFT do you think?(Hunting later on) Anyone had one of these?
    Is the BSA build quality really as good as Air Arms? What do you think Rockabilly / TopCat / PaperBag?

    I've never owned an Air Arms but trust me when I say that BSA quality is very good, especially for the money.

    I've never seen the standard Scorpion either, I think they discontinued it a while back. I know what you mean when you say about the loss in shot capacity with a carbine - the Scorpion K only does about 40 - 50 in .177 which could be annoying, but that's the price you pay for having a shorter, lighter, more maneuverable rifle I suppose.

    BSA barrels are very accurate, so the Scorpion will be good for Field Target, HFT and hunting all in one.

    There's not that much difference between the standard and carbine models, and you won't be disappointed with a BSA.

    ;)i had the full length scorpion with a walnut stock,it was still light,
    think it got over 100 full power shot , and yes the build quality is bomb proof

    Thanks guys

    Thanks for the responses guys / next rifle will definately be BSA then... I'm happy with the AA so far but must admit the quality of the blueing could be better. Thanks again for all your input
