Our specs show that this rifle has a 19.45" barrel. The shroud is much longer, and the exterior length from the action to the muzzle measures 24". The barrel is only the rifled portion of the gun.

Air Arms is known for its beautiful guns. And, the beauty is more than skin deep. As if the beautiful wood stock and deep, rich bluing weren't enough...there's the fantastic accuracy built into every gun.

If you believe that only accurate guns are interesting, then the S500 must be one of the most interesting guns on the planet! No matter what you've shot before or will shoot in the future, the Air Arms S500 Xtra FAC sidelever will leave an indelible impression!

The S500 has many uses...hunting, pest control, plinking & even field target (.177 caliber only). While there are plenty of guns in the same power range as this one, very few have a trigger as wonderful and as adjustable as this one. Many people compare the Air Arms triggers to those found on more expensive precharged pneumatic air rifles.

If this is the first Air Arms guns you're going to be VERY satisfied. The S500 is bound to exceed your expectations!

Things I liked: Outstanding quality, walnut stock is second to none. Accuracy is unparelled. None better in my opinion. That's why I bought the gun.

Things I would have changed: Nothing

What others should know: Purchased in Mar 2015 and returned in Jun 2015 because of failure. Returned to PyramidAir under warranty. PA replaced/repaired gun in record time.

Things I liked: This rifle has a great balance. I bought the walnut stock and could not have asked for a better piece of wood. The blueing is of the highest quality. It shoots all jsb pellets great, 18.1 being my favorite. It also shoots the 13.4 great too, wind will move these more though. I can shoot wine corks at 75 yds repeatedly with thw 18 grain jsb pellets. This is a great rifle and I doubt you will be able to find anything better out of the box at any price.

Things I would have changed: Hmmm, I will have to get back to you on that when I find something!

What others should know: I went with the single shot s500. I just think there is less to have problems with that way. Seems like most people want the repeater, guess that is your choice. If you want the very best buy this rifle, accuracy is unbeatable.

Things I liked: The walnut stock is absolutely stunning! Mine is nice and dark with light tiger stripes at one angle and light with dark stripes from another angle. With a fine satin-like surfaced. It seems pride in your work is becoming rare these days. I consider it a privilege to own something of such high quality. I need no adjustments for pellet path out to 50 yards with a medium mount Hawke HD 2-7x 32mm. The cheek weld is perfect for this setup. I was not satisfied with a high mounted larger scope, plus the gun was excessivey heavy. BTW the 7.55 lb. spec. is correct, I weighed it. The thin reticle on the crystal clear Hawke makes more magnification completely unnecessary for a 50 yard gun. I can hit sparrows past 50 yards I just can't see the pellet. If you routinely take shots past 50 yds. You may need more magnification to keep the mil dots closer together. Some people dial their velocities down below 900 get tight groups this thing shoots heavy pellets at 1000 fps. like a laser.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, except maybe the fill port. It works just fine though after you get used to it. Some have commented that the gun is not quiet. I feel this is somewhat overstated. The gun doesn't sound like a toy, but is not loud either. The odd thing is birds and rabbits act like they don't even hear it sometimes. Target shooting over rabbits, they don't even stop chewing. I have made multiple kills on sparrows in a single bush. (should have gotten the repeater) Some reviewers have negatively commented on the trigger mounted safety. The safety works just dandy in practice and I actually like it quite a lot. Last night I woke up in a cold sweat because I dreamed Air Arms wanted their rifle back because this one was earmarked for the Air Arms museum. (Not really, but I expect this to happen any day). There a lot of attractive rifles out there but Air Arms has set the bar so high with this one that I imagine I would just be disappointed if I bought another. Dang you Air Arms!

What others should know: I had a lead fouling problem and was initially disappointed with the accuracy. I could also see my pellets curving to the right. Sent it back under warranty and the tech from Air Venturi ran a brass brush through it (four single strokes)and sent it back with a test card with a .38" 10 shots at 42 yards that included one flyer! (cheap 10.5 gr. ultramags at 1005 fps) He seemed very impressed with this as was I (He called me on the phone before sending the rifle back.) I tested the rifle on return just before dark and it was produced small groups. The next day however in bright sun I could see the pellets curving to the right. I had ordered a new barrel so I saw no harm in a careful but deliberate scrubbing with JB bore paste. Now 8.4 gr.JSB, 10.5 gr. CPH, and 10.34 gr. JSB heavies have the same POI at 50 yds. (they did not before) with the JSB heavies being the best at (1/2" @ 50 yds. all day long with a 7x scope.) Now pellet path is dead stable and never a flyer. Mine is S500 .177

  • Joe from USA asked:

    How quiet is this gun? Whisper level? normal talking level?

    • Val from USA:

      Watch the video of AA S510 to learn about th esound levels. It's the same gun, just multi-shot version.
