Bring it back to where you got it. Not sure what you mean by shooting everywhere, it should group straight off, weather permitting.
Don't Fannie about with it, bring it back for the shop to check it over.

I would shim the action/stock fit and try another scope before jumping to any conclusions. Getting the spacing right on the stock mounting post is something I do with every new bsa rifle before I even put a scope on because this being right is very important to get a consistent poi throughout the fill.

If it is still no good take it back and get it swapped for a different one.

It should be good straight from the box mine was and also another lad from the club was also spot on from the box.
So it's best to take it back and get it exchanged rather have anyone fix it.

Just a question but did you do anything to the airstripper when you cleaned. I understand that a badly set up one can have an effect on grouping.

Take everything off the muzzle you can, make sure everything is tight and the scope is parallaxed. Fill to recommended pressure, shoot off a bench. If it's shotgunning take it back.

Reading your other thread on the bbs I see you have sprayed oil down the barrel, if even a single drop has dripped into the hammer housing it will behave the way you describe. The hammer needs to be completely dry. Oil will cause drag and this drag will not be the same every shot and will also change with temperature causing inconsistent lower power and poor shot accuracy.
My next step if that had happened would be to strip it down and put it back to how it needs to be and start again with your pellet testing process but this would invalidate the warranty and you don't want to do that if you suspect the gun has issues in case they are genuine manufacturing defect ones!

It is very easy for oil and debris to get in the hammer housing on the multishot bsa's as the bottom of the magazine bay is open and leads straight there. I have even seen pellets dropped in there and find their way to the hammer!

I don't think you have many options, either send it back and plead ignorance or sell it me cheap!
