I recently sold a BSA Lightning XL that I purchased 6 years ago. I was the second owner.
I was under the impression that it was a UK made Lightning, but the buyer is claiming that it is a Spanish made gun because it has an S in the serial number.
I cannot confirm if that is correct. I called AoA and David Slade and neither one could confirm it either. The buyer sent a link to this website....
However I know that the gun had a metal laminated cocking link and no bear trap and after reading this thread Im wondering if the gun was made in the UK or Spain.
The buyer is sending it back and I will have to re-list it but I do not want to list it incorrectly.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
