Can this rifle be shipped to California ?
What makes the "FAC" different from regular model?
FAC is standard for the US market, means "Firearms Certificate." In the UK, they are limited to 12 FPE airguns unless someone has an FAC, so Air Arms marks the higher power export models as FAC models.
Can you remove the moderator?
How does the sound report compare to an unmoderated S510 on high power?
It is much quieter.
Can the existing air connection be safely changed out to a male quick disconnect?
There are one or two places that offer such an adapter, so yes it can be done
what's the difference between this ultimate sporter and the regular s510?
Ultimate Sporter has adjustable laminate stock and Q tech moderator that is caliber specific.
Do you know if the actual barrel is 19.5 or is that the length with silencer attached and the barrel portion is shorter than that?
What's the difference between this S510 ultimate sporter XTRA FAC, with the regular sporter carbine? I want to buy the shorter one. This one seems to have a longer OAL and a longer air cylinder. Please help.
Could you get the 12ftlbs version on this here in the US? Thxs
Power adjuster can be set for 12FPE , use a chronograph to confirm.
The stock is ambidextrous, but can the cocking mechanism be moved to the other side for left-handed use?
No it cannot be changed
can i use one of the benjamin hand pumps with this gun
Yes, but I would recommend using a high pressure air tank to fill the gun as the air will usually be dryer when supplied by a high pressure breathing air compressor.
Are you aware of any plans to make this stock available for the regular S510 so that the standard stock could be swapped for this one?
Yes, Air Arms catalog offers this stock for sale.
How many shots does one get from the 177 or 22 ? useable shots please. thank you
You can expect about 50 good shots on low power and roughly 25 on high power. That will change slightly depending on the weight of the pellet in use. On high power, the sweet spot spans about 15 shots, all within 10 fps of each other.
If I buy more magazines do they only come in yellow? I like the steanlis one's
These come with standard magazines. Only 30the anniversary limited edition rifle comes with stainless steel magazines.
