    Some will know i had been mulling over which AA rifle to buy, even that i had considered a Hortitsia. So thanks to all who have commented on the various posts.

    I decided some while ago it would be an S410 full length / classic. More recently i decided it would be .22 as my other PCP's are .177, also that it would be a walnut stock. The stock choice more than anything meant that i would buy new, as they just don't come up that often used (i had been looking for months).


    So today my rifle arrived at DB Guns. Some BKL mounts arrived in the post from Optics Warehouse, i took a Panorama off another rifle, and just happened to have an AA mod in the cupboard. Just put that little lot together so here are a few pics.

    The stock will get a rub of walnut oil over the weekend.
    The BKL mounts i am unsure about - it could be very easy to overtighten them on the dovetail, and the scope tube doesn't seem such a snug fit as the sportsmatch. That said, sportsmatch mounts have their drawbacks also.
    (the bracket on the scope is to connect NV screen, and IR lamp)
    Looking forward to a 30yd zero over the weekend :D

    Beautiful looking rifle Oat :thumb:

    Have any of you lads noticed the similarity of the Pro Sport butt end and the 410 ? ( or is it just me ? )

    Looks lovely :thumb:

    One small point, what pellets are you using for your 30yrd zero - light ones? For a 16grn AAFD I'd strongly recommend a 27/28yrd zero. You'll be good out to 33yrds on the crosshair and hold under less at 15-20yds.. So its a more optimal zero range IMO - but things could be different for lighter pellets. :thumb: Using x6 mag the first full mil-dot down will be spot on for 40yrds. Each scope might need a slight tweak though as the mag wheels are not always 100%.

    Silver mounts are marmite then.
    Just had another set arrive.... :D




    Not done any pellet testing yet but express or jumbo /aadf.
    Normally have a 30yd zero in either cal, except for comp rifle which is 20yd. Its what you get used to really as hold over becomes 2nd nature. :up:
