By Geoff from USA on 2009-06-04 13:20:16Things I liked:I have been putting off this review along with several others for too long, as I have had too many guns to write reviews on recently. This however, is probably the most important of my collection, and deserves the time to review. Other owners should consider this as it is vital to "potential" buyers of this gun for us to express or opinions on this incredible rifle! I opted for the S410 Sidelever .22. Like my 2 other Air Arms guns, the fit and finish on this gun are EXCEPTIONAL! Visually, this gun is stunning. It looks like a true .22 rimfire rifle. Upon receiver this gun I chose the Leapers 8-32x56 AO IR scope. I bought the best scope I could afford for this rifle, considering at the time it was the most expensive rifle I owned. I am very happy with the Leapers scope on this gun. It is a great combination. The initial inspection of course was typical Air Arms, and flawless! I zero'd in my scope in my backyard at 25 yards, and literally took less than 10 shots to achieve. This gun is simply incredible to shoot. It is so comfortable and light, I think this is one of the rare higher end rifles than even a beginner can get used very quickly! The clip slides in effortlessly. The cocking arms indexes and loads the next pellet with such ease, it is truly amazing, and I had to make sure I indeed load a pellet into the breech the first few times. I couldn't believe the first few shots, there is NO recoil, and the sound virtually silent. It's more like a puff than a bang....
Things I would have changed:The only thing I could possibly think of is a little bit shorter barrel. But, that is just nit picking, because you can just buy the carbine version if you want shorter....
What others should know:This is definitely not for everyone financially, but for those that are on the fence and are considering this, but are having a hard time justifying the price, STOP! Buy this gun! Once you own it, you will be proud you own it, and never look back at the price paid again. You will love to show this to family and friends and let them shoot it. It is one of those purchases you can enjoy anytime. It is so much fun to bring out on a nice sunny day and set up a bench outside with some cold drinks and shoot all day. I find people wanting to shoot this more and more once you put it in their hands one time. This is the toy that people ask you to bring out when visiting. It has surprising power, number of shots, and accuracy is incredible. Like others have said concerning particular guns, this is one that will probably outshoot me for a long time to come. You can learn a lot from a gun like this, with potential to make you a better shooter for a lifetime. Buy this, enjoy, share it with people you enjoy being around, invite your neighbor over to shoot it. This is the gun that inspires people to want to get into arigunning over again or for the first time. You will definitely recruit new users into this awesome hobby with this gun, and bring family and friends closer. However, you will NEVER want to lend it out. It becomes part of your personality, that you just can't part with. Save up if you have to. Build a nice backyard, "safe" range, stock up on pellets and targets firstname.lastname@example.org

By Joseph from USA on 2012-09-14 09:43:51Things I liked: I got this gun in .177 RH and I'm loving it. It's so quite that the people next door don't even know when I'm shooting. The Sparrows and Starlings have all but disappeared. (one shot, one kill)
Things I would have changed: I'm going to keep this one "AS IS"!!!!
What others should know: This will be the gun that will be passed down, when I'm gone.
