Things I liked:Air arms is still the best value out there for PCP rifles. This is my third AA rifle (I own the 410sl fac in .22 cal w/walnut stock and AA 410 sl fac .177 w/walnut stock plus this new s510 sl fac .177 w/walnut stock. It is very easy to shoot sub 1/4" 10 shot groups @ 25 yds time after time. The craftsmanship and attn. to detail is amazing. The walnut on mine is really dark and has a fantastic grain pattern. The new mags seem to index a bit better than the earlier ones.
This rifle just feels solid and fits me so well. Just this morning I spent over 3 hrs straight shooting paper, sugar cubes, and air soft bb's sitting on golf T's @ 25 yds and I only broke 2 goft T's!! It just dosen't get any better than this.
It seems like the new FX air guns are all the rage right now, and I'll admit I fell for the hipe and spent big bucks for the FX monsoon w/ the walnut stock,in .22 cal. To say the least, as Shinia Twain would say--that don't impress me much.
The quality and attention to detail is just not there. The novelty of a semi-auto is great and I have put down a lot of small game with it, but it just dosen't grab me and say this is the best rifle you ever bought, and for the price it should say that and a lot more.I have been shooting pellet guns for over 30 yrs(65 yrs old) and every time I buy another AA rifle I get that same great happy feeling all over again. I would love to tour the AA plant and watch the process from beginning to end. What a memory that would be. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:Shoots JB exacts and Crossman premiers the best.
If you like shooting tiny groups and smalllllllllll targets with ease, buy this rifle.
It will last forever and your great grandkids will thank you.Be happy and safe shooting to all.
Things I liked:Rock solid. Your scope will never move with these rings. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:Just make sure you use the X configeration when tightning down your scope.
