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.

    I've only recently acquired my first pcp rifle, AA s200 mk3 and I can't recommend it highly enough it'll do everything you require, great value for money and they're accurate as hell :)

    S400 with S200 running a very, very, close second. Handle both to choose, as it's likely to be the feel rather than the facts that decide you. The BSA Ultra is one I have also owned in .177. Short on shot count and doesn't match up in any respect to either of the other two options, such is my belief. I sold mine at a loss as it just wasn't good enough.

    I'm tempted to go with the 200 as it's cheaper but also as it's lighter (I have nerve damage in left arm) but I will handle both before I part with my money. Thanks for the replies!

    I love my S400 and S410. Very accurate and easy to work on with easy supply of spares if required and bling if needed. A doddle to DIY if that's your thing also. My .22 carbine gives 94 shots within 15fps and my .177 classic gets about 80 with the same 15 fps spread.

    If you are going to shoot more target go for the S400 superlite in .177 I have one in .22 great little gun and very light. Don't bother with the multi shot unless you intend to do some hunting as they are a pain with a single shot adaptor, as you have to load from the left and it gets fiddly. I know this as I also have two S510's. Either way they are great rifles.

    Don't ask, get down to your nearest 'RFD' and shoulder them both. Your the one who will be pulling the trigger. Being happy with the feel of the gun that you intend buying, cuts more mustard than anything we can shout about. KB1. ps..... the Ultra would be a tough act to top, IMO. KB1

    Actually there is hardly any difference in weight between the 200 and 400. I have both and both are very very good. The 400 is a little more refined BUT there is something special about 200,s i really like them, there both very reliable and very accurate.

    Wieght wise i think the S400 carbine superlight feels a tiny bit lighter then a S200 to me, shot count is low on the carbine though.
    If you can handle the S400 classic supelight that would be my choice or a S200 with a Tench regulator fitted.
