    BSA Superstar

    Hi

    Can anyone tell me what the superstar stock and trigger guard screws were.

    I have one with hex headed bolts with star washers underneath

    and another with a slotted guard screw and crosshead screws in the stock with no washers.

    Having looked at chambers washers are required just not sure if mine are correct

    cheers,

    Lee

    I had one a few years ago, had hex bolts with serrated washers and a slotted screw with washer on the trigger guard

    Cheers, the hex bolts do look correct I think it may just be the trigger guard screw that is incorrect on that rifle

    thanks for the help,

    My 2 goldstars have the same setup. One has allen key heads. The other one has like a phillips screw heads. Strange why bsa used different type heads on same model guns

    They did use some very poor quality allen heads on the supersport that people often replaced as they rounded out when you tried to tighten them. maybe some previous owner replaced them?

    As both the allen and the cross head screw stock screws look correct. I assume they changed from Mk1 - Mk2

    My Mk1 has the screw heads and the Mk2 the allen heads.
