Air Arms s410 classic
Posted 22 January 2012 - 07:39 PM
He has got the Air Arms s510 TC and didnt get on with it.But now after using it for a few months he loves it.
So I still went ahead and did a complete strip down of the S410 seeing as I have never stripped a gun down before,only ever done a few stocks.
After looking up on the internet and getting some idea what do I dismantled all the working parts,degreased them then polished them all up.I also re-done the stock(Beech).Took off all the old varnish/oil,sanded then re-stained it with Indian rosewood and put on at least 10 coats of Birchwood casey True oil.
Also the bolt was for a left handed person so was going to buy a new one to fit a right handed person as the stock is right handed.But whilst browsing the AAOC forums I noticed a thread on how to change the bolt round for a right handed person.It was about a 30 min job but saved me £35
I chrono'd the rifle this morning and it was shooting at 13.70 ftlb .The power had gone right up where I had polished the working parts.But it was an easy fix as it is the Pre-anti tamper and adjusted it down to 11.20 ftlb.
So now I want to keep the s410 for myself but my wife has other ideas.She said I can keep it if I sell my HW100KT ...There is no chance of that.So looks like I will have to sell the s410.
Here are a few pics of my rifle.
This one was taken outside but the light wasnt very good and I only have an old cheapy camera.
All the rest were taken indoors in the front bed room as the sun was shinning in and was alot brighter
