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!

Verified Purchase

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.

Things I liked: Fit and finish is beautiful. Accuracy is outstanding. I have never seen a poplar stock look so good. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Things I would have changed: Ridiculous proprietary fill system. "Please Air Arms" wake up and fit a foster quick fill and save us the expense and aggravation of converting. Thus a 4 out of 5 overall rating!

What others should know: It is easy to fit a wheel stop to the right side knob if you are concerned about the adjustable power wheel moving. Concerns about the location of the safety I feel is overblown. To move it likely would result in an undesirable price increase.

Things I liked: The S500's accuracy outperforms all other PCP's I own. The side lever and pellet tray makes it very easy to load from either side. The adjustable trigger is easy to tune

Things I would have changed: Definately the power adjuster knob. It is a good design and set in a good area but it rotates freely either while shooting or filling the tank. After chrongraphing a string of shots for velocities then refilling the tank my second string shot velocities are lower than the first string everytime. I know the knob is rotating on its own at some point. I have to reset it after every fill. I slipped an oring over the knob it looks gaudy but it stabilized the velocities and increased my useable shots so leads me to believe it is moving while shooting Wish there was a nicer looking way to control this besides my oring fix

What others should know: Still have to say its accuracy is awesome for the price. A great buy !
