Our specs show that this rifle has a 19.45" barrel. The shroud is much longer, and the exterior length from the action to the muzzle measures 24". The barrel is only the rifled portion of the gun.

Air Arms is known for its beautiful guns. And, the beauty is more than skin deep. As if the beautiful wood stock and deep, rich bluing weren't enough...there's the fantastic accuracy built into every gun.  

The match grade, Lothar Walther barrel produces groups that would make any shooter proud. The regulator keeps your velocity consistent over the entire shot string, providing up to 60 shots in .177 and 55 in .22.  And with the on board, 5 position power adjuster, you can fine tune the performance of the S500XS to your needs.

If you believe that only accurate guns are interesting, then the S500XS must be one of the most interesting guns on the planet! No matter what you've shot before or will shoot in the future, the Air Arms S500XS Xtra FAC sidelever will leave an indelible impression!

Things I liked: It's a lot more accurate than I am. The quality of the fit and finish is evident.

Things I would have changed: Make it lighter. Use an penetrating varnish rather than the plastic-like surface finish (I'm guessing it's an acrylic). That would look better and make for a better grip when your hands are sweaty. Do away with the proprietary fill adapter and replace it with the more universal quick-disconnect.

What others should know: It takes a lot of pumping to get it up to the recommended 250 bars with a hand pump (about 150 pumps from empty with my setup). A SCUBA tank or air compressor would be a very handy accessory.

Things I liked: Aesthetic appeal; fine finish; precise construction; comfortable stock; precise trigger pull; highly accurate; fun to shoot; smooth side lever operation; quiet firing cycle.

Things I would have changed: The trigger safety is OK, but I would prefer an easy- to- see thumb safety; I prefer a Foster fitting over a proprietary filling device for easy of use.

What others should know: Rather than a review, I will describe how I use my joy-to-own Air Arms S500 Extra FAC Super-lite rifle. I set up a challenging field target course on my property. Initially, I set targets at distances ranging from 10 yards to 50 yards because I shot only springers. Since acquiring my exquisite Arm Arms rifle, I extended the range to 90 yards. Kill zones range from 3/8 to 1 1/4 inches. I also set up reactive targets such as one-inch lollipops and Daisy Shatter Blast targets. My Air Arms S500 knocks 'em all down with misses attributed only to my lack of concentration. It is shooting nirvana working the smooth side lever, loading a 10.34 JSB, lining up a kill zone, and seeing the steel critter fall. The trigger pull and the hammer strike do not disturb my sight picture. Scoring hits is vastly easier with my Arms Arms than with any of my springers. I charged my Air Arms S500 with a Hill pump. I now use a Nomad II. Beware! PCPs, especially high-end guns, are addictive.

Things I liked: I purchased the regulated .177 Cal version of this rifle for Field Target competition. This is one accurate rifle. I'm shooting dime-size groups out to 50 yards with AA 10.34 gr pellets. The action is as smooth as silk, and the trigger is delightful (after I adjusted it to less than 1/2 pound break). The stock is pretty, and fits my body well. At my local air gun club indoor 30 yard range I shot twelve consecutive 5 shot groups that were about 5/16" (1/4"-3/8"), center to center. On the middle power setting I am getting 75 shots on a fill (250 bar) before the pressure gets below the regulated pressure (150 bar). The lowest power setting is about 6 fpe (good for basement shooting), the second setting is 12 fpe, the third setting is about 18.9 fpe. The two highest setting are too fast for .177, unless you are planning to shoot JSB monster pellets.

Things I would have changed: The new power adjuster has detents so that the power adjustment will not be easily bumped. I found that the highest two settings are way to fast for my AA 10.34 gr pellets. The middle adjustment is still a little too fast (910 fps for the 10.3 gr pellets). I remedied this by turning the power slightly lower than the middle setting and tightening the allen lock screw on the action. A somewhat difficult operation, but once done I am getting a more reasonable velocity (870 fps) with AA 10.34 pellets. At 910 fps I was getting too many fliers.

What others should know: My rifle shot well right out of the box, but I shot occasional fliers, and I was 'only' getting 60 shots on a fill. After 500 shots, there are no fliers, and the regulator seems to be broken in with 75 shots per fill. I tired JSB 10.3 gr and 13.4 gr, AA 10.34 gr, H&N BM 10.65 gr and Crosman Premeire 10.5 gr pellets. The Air Arms 10.34 gr shot the best, with the JSB 10.34 being a close second. The rifle seems to like unlubed pellets the best.

    What Adapter do I need with my Benjamin travel compressor to fill this air rifle

  • pearl from USA asked:

    What regulator is installed in the regulated model

    • Mark from USA:

      Air Arms makes their own regulators.

  • Fred from USA asked:

    Any idea what PSI the regulator is set at? I shot the rifle over a chrony, and it seemed to come off the regulator at 155 Bar.

    • Thomas from USA:

      Fred; identical results here. My S-500 comes off of the regulator @155 Bar. Confirmed. Also: Try 15.5gr Nielson Specialty Ammo......and you'll never have to worry about windy days!
