Things I liked:The design and quality of the gun are excellent. I have only had the gun for a few weeks but so far have been pleasantly surprised. The poplar stock is very nice with good grain and a great finish with decent checkering. Just added a Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 6.5-20x42mm scope with Hawke Match Series High mount 2pc rings and the accuracy seems fairly decent although the gun really needs to be sighted in on a range. Will update my accuracy rating once I get the gun sighted in correctly. The high mount rings allow ample clearance for loading the magazine. The velocity checks out at over 1000 fps with a full charge and RWS .22 cal pellets (14.2 grn) and in the 960 fps range with Beeman Crow Mags. The gun is surprisingly quiet for the power and velocity generated and although I have a large yard I doubt it would bother neighbors unless they were really close. Will do a follow up once I really get the gun sighted in and it gets some use.
Things I would have changed:PCP manufacturers really need to standardize the charging hookups for their guns. Just make all guns with the quick disconnect nipple and be done with it. Each manufacturer has their own version and you have to bit piece fittings together to make it work. When filling from 4500 psi bottles, you really don't want many extra parts in line when working with these high pressures. For safety and sanity, just go with a standard design!
What others should know:I have only had the gun for a few weeks and unfortunately found out the gun didn't include an adapter to use a quick disconnect when charging the gun from a HP bottle. You need the 1/8 BSPP (British Standard Pipe Parallel) adapter (P/N PY-A-3550) to use a quick disconnect if filling from a 4500 psi bottle. The Brits use a slightly different thread size than the US system so don't try using our pipe fittings, they look close but they won't work and you'll end up ruining the brass threads on the Air Arms fill adapter.
Things I liked:Fit and finish are outstanding as with all Air Arms products. I purchased this rifle for indoor practice on reduced silhouette targets and for Field Target. It's weight with a scope is very similar to that of my smallbore silhouette rifle with trigger weight/feel also quite similar, making it an excellent training platform.
Things I would have changed:Long first stage trigger travel takes some getting used to. Not a big deal, just something to be aware of.
What others should know:I have been able to get 70 consistently accurate shots from a fill with power just over 1/2 way. Shots 75-80 fell off fairly significantly. Loading the magazine into the rifle is easy -- just watch what you are doing and don't force it. I don't expect to have any problems.
Things I liked:Quality. When you buy a rifle like this one from Air Arms, you expect a level of refinement not seen in lower cost options. And this certainly did not disappoint. If you want to buy only one PCP that will outlive you, this is the one.
Things I would have changed:I would've liked to have two mags included in the purchase price instead of only one.
What others should know:If you miss with this air rifle, you have only yourself to blame! Accuracy of the S510 is rarely matched in any other air rifle I've shot- and I've shot many.
