A superb rifle. Powerful, accurate, and looks gorgeous!
None so far.
Although Ive used other rifles every now and again, the Air Arms S400 Classic .22 is the first rifle I have owned and the first rifle Ive used with a scope. On the accuracy side of things I cant comment too much about, but after I set it up (was easier than I thought) I was able to hit a blade of grass at the end of my 30m garden with one shot! It was probably a lucky shot I know, but hitting within 1 1/2 inch diameter clusters at 30m is common (but remember! ive only had it a week so am still a novice)
The weight and size seems perfect for me.
This is the first rifle ive used with a pump, which personally I think is better than breaking the barrel every time you want a shot. The pumping up takes about 3 minutes to about 210 bar and will lasts me a 10-15 min constant shooting session. Havn't noticed any degradation of the accuracy even down to about 140 bar, but I havnt let it get lower than that. (plus im probably not accurate enough to notice it yet!)
Its very quiet.
The gun looks the don too. The stock is nothing less than beautiful, it fits the hand like a dream. I was always sure I wanted a functional and plain rifle like the logan, but the S400 won me over!
I got mine second hand, dont know what its cost it new, so have put 10 on the value for money box so it doesnt affect my other values.
