Things I liked: I bought this in .177, this is a beautiful gun, fit and finish is spot on . It is Not too pellet picky, I have shot AA, JSB, H&N in various weights, on the 2 and 3 power setting with the med. weight pellets I am getting 860 to 900+ fps and excellent shot count , well over 50 good shots . 25 yards I am getting 3/8" groups, 50 yards I am getting 1/2" groups . If I had to pick 1 pellet I would go JSB 8.44gr @ 25 yards and probably use the AA 10.3 @ 50 yards, but it is pretty damn close group wise with either at both distances. The trigger is quite nice as well right out of the box. Now with all that said will it out shoot my FX Impact .22 fully tuned , No , but for quite a bit less money the S510 XS Ultimate Sporter Xtra is holding its own. and I am very happy with the gun. I sold my FX Streamline .177 in laminate after buying this gun, My s510 is in Walnut and there is ABSOLUTELY No comparison , not even close when it comes to the stocks, AA kills the competition stock wise....

Things I would have changed: Nothing much about the gun, but I wish the gun, at this price point , did come with a hard case instead of just being in a cardboard box

What others should know: The gun is rated at a 2 noise level and that is pretty close to what I consider an actual 2 , definitely backyard friendly , I added the DonnyFL Tanto Moderator and she is super quiet which is the way I like all my guns

Things I liked: Fit and finish, it is a work of art. Repeatable and useful adjustable power levels. Lowest power is like for indoors, maybe 6 FPE, next is just under 12 FPE, could use for WFTF Field Target, next is between 19 and 20 FPE depending on pellet weight, JSB 10.34gr is 19.44 FPE, ideal for USA Field Target. Next two power levels too powerful for .177 pellets, over 1000 FPS. Trigger is excellent, but heavier than I would like after turning out the over all trigger weight screw, will have to work on this, but for hunting, general use is excellent. It is now regulated, initial impression is that is working well, 55 yard shots seem very consistent. Number of shots per fill seems acceptable, l have not counted yet. Accuracy: first week it wasnt very good with 20% fliers, but each day it got better, less flyers. Now with JSB 10.34 it is very , very good, 5 40 yard shots all touching. I think it will continue to get better as the barrel seasons. I have not cleaned the barrel.

Things I would have changed: As before, the non-automatic safety is on the trigger (WTF). For my use, I will rarely, if ever use the safety, but it should not be on the trigger. You would get used to it if it was your only gun, but... Fully shrouded barrel, it is backyard quiet, but not Maurader quiet. Air tube is a finger print magnet, but wipe down with an oil rag and it is the famed Air Arms black mirror blueing. I want to get the trigger weight lower for Field Target. The magazine on the left makes setting up a side focus scope with a large wheel a bit of a challenge.

What others should know: .177 received only 2 1/2 weeks ago, so might not be my final openions. My focus is Field Target, I will use this in AAFTA Hunter PCP competition. This would be a 5-star review if the safety was removed or moved to a logical place. I would certainly recommend this gun based on my limited experience with it so far.

    Things I liked: The gun is beautiful. Period. I like the look, feel, design.

    Things I would have changed: I would make is possible to use a bore snake. The breech opening is so small (just the clip width), that you can only use a rod to clean the barrel. Even then, getting the patch to come all the way out is impossible.

    What others should know: The gun is heavy. Clean the barrel right away. It was filthy. If you let the shot pressure drop too low the gun will expel all the air in the reservoir after the shot (happened to me today actually). If youre not using a compressor, this could make for a bad day. The gun doesn't like wad cutters. Accuracy is poor using them. Round nose (Crosman) are the most accurate. I can send them through the same hole over and over at 10 meters at full power. Its a real nice gun. I love it. Its mantel worthy.
