The British gunmaking houses have a reputation for building accurate and beautiful guns. That includes Air Arms. With an eye toward extreme detail, their air rifles command the attention of airgunners around the world.

When you get this S500, the first thing you'll do is marvel at the high-gloss, mirror-like stock finish. Next, take a look at the deep, rich bluing. It's almost too beautiful to shoot. (We said "almost.")

The Air Arms state-of-the-art factory consistently produces guns that deliver pinpoint accuracy. The S500 Xtra FAC air rifle is a prime example that puts shot after shot in the same hole. If you do your part, the S500 will do its part.

So, marvel at it's beauty, but know that its beauty goes all the way through. Shoot it. Enjoy it. Share it with your family. Some day, they'll inherit this heirloom. Everlasting pleasure delivered with every Air Arms gun!

Things I liked: First off I have the 0.177 version. The stock is beautiful as others have noted. The gun is lighter than expected - certainly lighter than my Marauder. Very accurate now that I've run dry patches through the barrel. Plenty of power - I get about 19 ft lbs of energy at half power with a 10.34 grain JSB pellet. Plenty of shots per charge - I can shoot this from about 190 bar to 110 bar giving me about 40+ shots.

Things I would have changed: Price - but I can see why it costs so much. You get what you pay for. The blueing on the gun loves to gather fingerprints - so be prepared to wipe it often to keep it looking great.

What others should know: First off I had trouble getting hole-in-one groups right out of the box with JSB pellets at 25 yards. I ended up running dry patches through the barrel and the gun is super accurate now - even got great results with Beeman Kodiak 10.65 pellets. Mine loves the heavier pellets for some reason, especially the JSB 10.34 grain. To try and keep the gun light, I paired mine with medium scope rings and a Hawke 2-7x32 AO IR scope - plenty of range out to 50 yards. Last, if you plan on using a Benjamin pump to fill it up - remember to buy the Air Venturi Foster adapter to make the connection. Much easier to pump up compared to my Marauder for some reason.

Things I liked: The weight and finish of rifle. Being able to adjust the power easily is a major plus. The finish on the stock is great.

Things I would have changed: Nothing! Gun is perfect and priced perfect.

What others should know: This gun is extremely accurate and very consistent without a is one of the best values for the money! I bought the gun for a back up field target gun and this gun is outperforming my main gun that cost $1,600 more. Buy this gun! You will love it.

Things I liked: Gun is fantastic! Great accuracy, trigger and quality built.

Things I would have changed: None

What others should know: You are getting a lot of gun for this money. I bought this rifle for a back up to my daystate panther, but this gun is shooting just as accurate or better. This maybe the best value in a high power or hunter class rifle.
