Things I liked:The heavy barrel. Barrel is almost 5/8" in dia. and free floated so that means no barrel bands to worry about/not trust. I like that the magazine does not protrude above the receiver. The stock is a fantastic piece of walnut and sculpted with purpose. Fits like a glove. I can hardly walk past it without picking it up and shouldering it. Installed sling studs are great. Regulated! Not pellet fussy. The trigger is adjustable for physical position (crude but useful) as well as sear engagement and pull. Haven't messed with the sear. I prefer the trigger on my S500. But if I had to choose between the rifles, I would pick the R10.
Things I would have changed:I would like to see a more rounded corner on the bottom of the butt plate so it doesn't hang on my shirt when lowering the rifle. Mine came set up with the regulator set up to a relatively high pressure and a light hammer strike. Which was very efficient (lots of shots) but gave some variation of velocity during shot string. I lowered the regulator pressure and increased the hammer spring tension so the velocity would be stable at 845 fps (900 fps CPHP) and smoothly dropping off the regulator at around 130 bar. I think this is the ballistic sweet spot for this pellet for a 50 yard shot, but I am no expert. Also there is no cover for the fill probe socket. A foam ear plug works well here.
What others should know:The cheek piece is well suited to a high mounted scope. The bottle shaped reservoir is a more efficient use of material than a long slender tube. I believe this is where the weight savings came from to pay for the bull barrel, still leaving the R10 mk2 .25 lbs. lighter than the Air Arms S510 which has a thinner barrel. This is a robust, manly rifle. In my mind the barrel, hammer forged around a hardend mandrel, should leave a barrel without burrs. I do know that this rifle is astonishingly accurate. It will put pellets through the same exact hole at 25 yards and easily capable of 3/8" or less at 50 yards.
Things I liked:Lines on the gun are beautiful, and the balance is spot on for me (5'6"). The trigger is excellent, and now that I have several hundred pellets through it, the action is very smooth. Accuracy is great out to 100yds (though wind is a problem); shot count is great with the regulated output. Sling studs on stock make putting a bipod on a breeze. Magazines have a unique design, and no jams, smooth as butter. Available single shot adapter makes odd sized pellets feed easily. Not overly pellet fussy, but seems to like JSB jumbos so far. Very easy refill port with the gauge visible during the refill.
Things I would have changed:Trigger adjustments are not all available unless the stock is removed. It's a little louder than I would like even with the shroud (but the neighbors don't object when they see a rifle in the back yard making the noise!) and will probably eventually modify it to be quieter.
What others should know:Fits me better than an FX, and the Daystate seems very barrel heavy in comparison. Couldn't beat the price from Pyramyd Air, but they don't allow any advertised discounts beyond the stated price.
Things I liked:IMHO the R10 is one of the best looking guns around! The stock is gorgeous and it handles great. It comes with sling studs. Accuracy is phenomenal. Sound isn't to loud. Adjustable butt pad. The trigger is very crisp and easily adjustable. Reg can be adjusted w/o disassembly. Uninterrupted dovetail makes scope mounting a breeze.
Things I would have changed:The shroud is not vented at the muzzle, so all the shroud behind the muzzle is just cosmetic. If the shroud were vented then maybe the guns overall length could be reduced cause there are 8" in front of the muzzle for the sound suppression. After firing the last pellet in the mag it is possible to continue cycling the action and firing w/o pellet in gun. Please add blank spot in magazine so after firing last pellet then action can't cycle & notify shooter that mag is empty. Fix the setting of the reg from the factory. On two .22cal copies I received the reg was set to high resulting in an fps spike when the gun drops off the reg. I reduced the reg setting to 135 bar and now its averaging 900 fps (JSB 16gr) with no spike for 45 good shots from 230 bar before POI drops.
What others should know:If you mount a bipod on the front stud (like Caldwell or Harris ) you'll likely have to remove it each time you fill. So use a stud to picatinny adapter and a bipod that clamps to picatinny. This moves the bipod to the front of the stud leaving the fill port clear. The trigger isn't a true two stage unit. As far as sear engagement goes there is only the second stage. It is very easy to adjust but don't go to light or a strong bump might fire the gun. BSA barrels are known for accuracy. My .22cal R10 is shooting more accurately than my S410 rifle. Also the barrel has a nice stiff 15.5mm OD where many other guns are coming with more slender and flexible barrels. Dovetail is low or barrel is high (depending on your point of view) compared to other AGs so be prepared to buy high mounts. What are you waiting for?
