Things I liked:Near flawless, consistent AA accuracy. Fully customizable buttplate and cheekpiece. Large air reservoir for a high shot count. Stock that feels and fits as good as it looks. External power adjuster. Adjustable sling stud to place bipod various positions. Just fairly quiet, but nearly no mechanical noise at all, just air. The stock just feels great. From resting against your shoulder, to the smooth cheekpiece, to the ergonomic feel under the barrel. The stock just fits like a glove.
Things I would have changed:The minor things I'd like to see AA change are as follows. Like everyone else, the rheostat power adjuster has no notches to designate low, med, high power. You just have to guess. And for precision shooting, this not good enough. You will never get the same power each time adjusting it, apart from high of course. The front dovetail does not go back far enough. For scopes with a short eye relief and short length, you may not be able to put it far back enough toward you for your liking. I had to use a single strap mount in the front to do this. Could be lighter, but not too heavy. Ok, price. You're getting a wonderful stock, but it's nearly $600 more than the cheapest wood. AA, it's time you start making your wood stocks with cheekpieces and buttplates optionally adjustable. Had they, I would not have thrown this much money into this rifle, however, I am pleased with its quality nonetheless. Implement the safety elsewhere than the trigger. engaging the safety requires...
What others should know:...you to reach your index finger through the trigger housing and wrapping it around the trigger to engage it, as it is on the left side (this is of course if your right handed). it's awkward and can cause you to accidentally fire. You get two mags, and they operate well enough, but an extra is 50 dollars? this is way overpriced, and the design is far from perfect. Unlike my marauder mags, which completely house the pellets, the AA mag always leaves the pellet to be loaded exposed. so if you want to go hunting with preloaded mags, you'll be subject to the pellets (albeit 1 per mag) falling out into your pocket. Bottom line, I love this rifle, but for this price and for an established brand such as Air Arms, there is plenty of room for improvement. and one last thing, my initial rifle from PA came with the pistol grip snapped in half. Even after sending pictures of this (as asked), I still had to send it back to be inspected before my replacement would be sent. Unacceptable
Things I liked:This is the second Air Arms S510 Extra FAC Ultimate Sporter I've owned. The first was in 177 and had a slow leak in it, so I returned it for a 22. I can honestly say I'm glad the 177 had a leak, the 22 out performs the 177. ALOT better in the wind. Lots of down range power. 100 yards no problem. Great small game and target rifle. Very happy with this purchase.
Things I would have changed:Maybe a higher BAR and PSI rating or different valve, I would love to see how this thing performs at 900 or 950 fps with a 21 grain pellet.
What others should know:Your going to want to put a good piece on glass on this rifle. I'm holding 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards outside.
Things I liked:Approaching 24 fpe in .177. Incredible power,accuracy,consistency, and build quality. Straight out of the box, was intuitive, glitch free, fun to shoot, which is not always the case with pcp rifles. Love the laminate stock, configuration,ergonomics, aesthetics, and max adjustability. Photos do not do this rifle justice.
Things I would have changed:Create a method for power adjust settings with detents or positive clicks for max repeat ability. Throw in a cool AA sling.
What others should know:Awesome .177 pcp capable of long distance accuracy out to 100 yards. Loves the heavier pellets over 10g like Crossman heavy, jsb heavy, barracuda/kodiaks, rabbit magnum, barracuda magnum, and jsb monsters. Shoots them all well @ full power setting. This one is fun and addictive to shoot. Hawke sidewinder tactical 6-20x42 is a very nice match and you can still spot the .177 impacts.
