1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Looking to buy a .177 AirArms and the 400 range suits.
    In owners opinions, which would be the better gun, the 410 as standard multi or a 400 with a Rowan addition?
    Thanks

    Might as well just get the 410 as by the time you price £50 or so for the rowan system it's nearly same price , what will the rifle be used for mate ?

    Go for the S410 as the multishot auto-indexes, and the mags are really good. The Rowan mag is manual indexing, meaning you have to rotate it every time you cock the rifle to load a pellet.

    However, if you want to convert the S410 to single-shot, Rowan do a single shot mag which is very good.

    Definitely an S410 then, quicker to send a follow-up shot if required, and you produce less body movement.

    Go for the 410, I use mine for Rabbits and Rats. One piece of advice I would give would be to take care each time you insert the magazine so as not to damage the brass indexing spring that sticks out and locates with the magazine.
    I tried to load mine to quickly and broke the spring, it cost me £12 to replace? That's the only problem in 3 years of weekly use, great piece of kit.

    400/410

    Both are great guns if on a budget then get the 400 and add the rowan kit at a later date or if funds allow just go straight for the 410 and enjoy.

    An S410 with a single shot adaptor is miles better than an S400 with a multishot adaptor,whichever mode you use it in.

    S410 if you can afford it, especially since you will likely be using it in its multi-shot mode most of the time anyway when you're out rabbiting. They're a very capable rifle and one of those that "just work", which is what you need in a hunting gun. I'm sure you will love it. :)
