I purchased my S200 mk2 nearly 3 years ago and you may wonder why has it taken so long to write a reveiw?. I have always used springers prior to my s200 and its taken alot to get used to this rifle because the rifle is so quiet (air arms silencer fitted), its very light, easy to handle and great for pest control. I have mainly used the rifle for Rats,Rabbits and Squirrels. The rifle when new is factory set to 10.5 ft pounds. I have used the rifle at these settings from day i purchased it with No problems in dispatching small vermin, however i recently was looking on the internet and there are various stories that the S200 mk2 power can adjusted up. so i called into a local gunsmith for some advice,they advised me to drop my rifle into them and they will test the rifle and improve power if possible. I collected the rifle today and boy there is a big difference it is now registering between 10.9-11.7ft pounds. The gunsmith fitted a new seal & bolt and adjusted power!!. I was thinking of purchasing the mk3 model but not anymore!. Go out and buy one of these rifles and you won`t regret it.
very light,nice to handle and worth every penny!
