cheek piece, accuracy, noise management, pressure gauge.
overall length, cocking strength, no power adjustmen like the S310 series.
I have both the .177 and .22 caliber versions of the air Arms 410E air rifle. I tend to shoot the .177 more as the gun gets more shots per fill and is more accurate than the .22. The .177 prefers Crosman Premier Heavies 10.5gr and is good at 20-21 ft-lbs for over 60 shots (close to 80 total shots). The .22 likes Beeman Kodiak 21gr pellets and shoots at 33-34 ft-lbs for 25 or so shots.
.177 easily can keep the pellets within 1/2" at 50 yards outdoors while the .22 is 3/4". Since I don't sort pellets but I do lube them with Slick 50 ONE lube.
Since both guns use the same shroud..the .177 obviously is much quieter than the .22. The Hammer spring noise is much more noticable than the discharge sound.
The rifle is quite long, thus best suited for "sniper" work on quarry. I have added swivel studs on the stock and is great with a Harris bipod mounted.
Cocking the rifle is not as smooth as other configuration such as the FX series of guns.
