A quick update , I went to the local gun shop today and bought the Airarms 510 ultimate sporter , I think it should be ok for benchrest as it has a wide stock and the accessory rail underneath the stock will mount a hamster or a bigger benchrest thingy that rides on the rest .
I pick it up tomorrow , ran out of time today in the shop as had to get back to open the Pub .
Am looking forward to shooting it and there is a local air rifle club that do benchrest.
I look forward to letting You know how I get on and looking at the posts on the forum .
Kind regards
Paul


If looking for a hamster .. look up "tilly's gun stocks" on facebook and message Tommy, he has just started to make Hamsters to match the Ultimate. I have one on order and he was a easy guy to deal with. I would have it now apart from I am out of the country on a business trip. He makes two styles, one with a flat back and (IMO) a much more matched to the ultimate curved style

Hopefully this works (going to try and link to some of his pics on his facebook page)

HI Billy and Roger , hope You had a good xmas and new year . Yes I got the rifle but have been too busy to reply , I put a Hawke 6-24 sidewinder on it , but the big wheel for the adjustable objective is no good as it fouls the magazine.
I haven't joined a club yet but zeros it at 12 yards in the cellar lol and 1 hole 10 shot groups , ok so far .
Pub restaurant was shut yesterday and I set a backstop up and shot from 25 yes good groupings but they had opened up a little , need more practice .
I'll try some different pellets and let You know how I get on ,
Kind regards,

Paul

Hi Paul, AADF 4.52 is what I use, I've tried a lot of different pellets, but not found anything to beat these. Rog

the small Sidewinder wheel works fantastic on the Ultimate Sporter and does not foul the magazine ..
