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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Yes I prefer the S410tdr to the s510tdr.. The 410 comes in a proper take down rifle case, The 510 comes in a full size case.. :shrug:For me, totally defeat's the object..

    Left-handed option, proper length barrel with longer cylinder, more precise barrel-to-mod interface (on the standard sporter models anyway)..

    Also all S510s post-date anti-tamper so if the thought of AT makes you a bit sick in your mouth the S410's the only option ;)

    If I was to be given either gun now I’d choose s510. If I was rich and choosing AA for collection would be s410

    Nah, I went for the 510 u/s, I prefer the sidelever rather than a rear bolt, S4**'s just look a bit bland & stuck in the 90's with the 300.

    For hunting and a true carbine the S410 wins it for me, Light accurate and nice to handle. I have the US although nice side lever and a true carbine which the 510 carbine isn't it's heavy and better suited to targets.

    I’m with you 100% , and the force is strong for a 410 tdr and I will have one in the not to distant future but apart from the case,Is the 510 tdr a better gun, more shots,better accuracy , more potential for development,these are the things I need to know before I take the plunge.

    Maybe I've titled this thread wrong :confused: Thanks for your comments though chaps ;) But the question is does anyone prefer the 410 over the 510? And why ? :)

    S410 for me, not a fan of S510 shrouds hiding a 15.5" barrel, what was that about ? Should have stuck the full size barrel in it, and we wouldn't have had all the clipping rubbish, can't knock the side lever, especially if you find it hard to cock, which can be a problem for some, especially youngsters

    I don't have a 510, nor have I even handled one :( but I would like to.

    However, I do have a 410 Carbine and it is superb. It is brilliant on targets and for hunting. :up:
    Undoubtedly, if I bought a 510, it would be compared to the 410 so it would certainly have a lot to live up to.

    Napier were the people who supplied the TDR backpacks to AirArms,and your right in that they are not available from them anymore. If you are looking for one, try Julian Bond AAOC, apart from that I found a case off eBay that does the job really well.

    I will have a go I've shot many s410, s510 and ultimate sporter's

    I like the side lever on the s510 and ultimate sporter. Both have a down side for me though, the ultimate sporter is heavier than the standard s510 but the standard s510 has a not great shroud and fitting a mod makes it too long.

    Moving onto the s410, I can shoot the s410 quicker than both the s510 and ultimate sporter. You can add a mod to the s410 without making it too long and it's lighter than the ultimate sporter.

    The s410 isn't without a down side and thats watch knocking your barrel but overall I would go s410 over the other models :thumb:

    I will touch on the TDR (I own one) I love it and was seriously considering the s510 model but for a take down rifle it's in a big case unlike the s410 TDR which has a small nice case. Yeah the newer model looks better and has better mod/shroud but again the s410 TDR is better for me and mine has no AT anymore so services are easy :p:D

    I realise this post is basically about preference i.e. S410 v S510 they are in reality pretty much the same rifle, I used to have an early S510 in .22 the early ones were proper carbines, and once I had shortened the shroud and fitted the moderator directly to the barrel, became a really nice and quick to handle rifle, great for squirrels. unfortunately, the later ones became classic size, and as said, once fitted with a moderator, became javelins, this changed with the ultimate sporter, i had one for a while, but in all honesty, I never liked the stock and actually put it in a beech stock with an adjustable cheekpiece, which suited me better. Servicing wise, both rifles are easy to home service, if you notice your sidelever becoming a bit slack, there is a little rubber bush/seal on the probe that can split ( A/A call this a detent buffer ) which again is an easy fix, not as simple as renewing the o-ring on the S410 bolt though. I'd be happy to have either rifle (and I have ) for me putting an ultimate sporter into a standard beech stock is the way to go, until then, I'll stay with the S410
