High power for Kodiaks - 850 fps,
25 shots per charge,
light weight for capacity,
big quick connect that won't wear out seals like FX or Falcon in the field and cause leaks,
smooth 10 shot magazines that will hold lead balls,
dealer tweaked trigger as condition of sale - it's great,
screw on cap to protect fill port,
stock is the nicest I've seen,
rubber butt pad,
adjustable power (optional - should be stock),
Thumbhole stock is exceptional - I bought mine separately - it has an adjustable butt plate,
Built in shroud is very quiet - no mod needed,
Very inexpensive for a great repeater with shroud.
I paid $100 more to get a similar FX gun with the same features.
can shoot an empty magazine,
can't cock/decock without chambering another pellet,
no open sights,
needs better documentation,
AA needs to include spare oring set for gun,
ALL AIRGUN MFG's NEED TO INCLUDE SPARE O-RINGS WITH GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've heard of some minor quality issues from my dealer but have absolutely none on my gun so far.
Magazines need to be about $10 instead of $45.
The Air Arms 410E is my fourth PCP gun and by far my favorite. It's my second PCP repeater and though I've paid a lot more for other guns (Daystate and Falcon) and the overall fit and finish might be a tad bit better the cost was much higher (cosmetics), I think the 410E is in a class all of its own with value and accuracy where the rubber meets the road. Accuracy is just as good and the weight and balance is very good for a high power gun in its class. I've read of it being fragile but not any more or less than any of the other PCP's - try dropping a scoped R1 or Daystate or Tarantuala or FN19 and then tell me if the POI changes. Been there done that. Don't drop/bang/knock any of your airguns! I put the optional adjustable power screw on my gun when I bought it and it cost $60 xtra and when I compared cost to all the other dealers (they were all about the same price) plus shipping it was almost a wash to get the mod with the gun cause Pomona is so much cheaper! Looks like many have figured this out already, wish they would do emails though. My neighbor just bought one and has some radial cracking issues with the clear plastic from the screw in the center but nothing really serious.
There are some improvements but the gun is the best out of the box and for the money in my humble opinion.
