Hi all,

I've a deposit put down on an AA S510 Ultimate Sporter Xtra but I have a bit of an odd question to ask...

does this model have different lettering on the side, mine says Classic FAC Ultimate Sporter but I seem to recall some having Xtra FAC Ultimate Sporter?

same rifle I presume just different lettering for different countries?

may thanks,

Mine says the latter. David.

Thanks David,

Can I ask... do you adjust the pressure ft/lbs often or do you hold the same all the time?

So I rang Air Arms and the difference between the Classic Fac Ultimate Sporter and the Xtra Fac Ultimate Sporter is the length,

the Classic is a little bit longer but all other specs are the same,

happy days!

I had planned on setting it at 30 and leaving it there.Only had it 3 days so still playing with it. Lowering it does not seem to give any more shots, just closes the vent. David.

Presumably changing the power would need a new zero and scope adjustment table for each power level?

As well as that Peter, I wonder if the barrel may be pellet fussy at different power levels. David.

Hi again,

I only recently got my rifle (huge delay on licence paperwork) and I'm very impressed with it so far,

on full power at 50 yards I can get a 1/2" group!

quick question tho... can the power adjuster lever be locked in a certain position and if so how?

Under the adjuster is a grub screw which keeps the wheel in place. As there is no way of locking it ,you could tighten the grub which will make it harder for the wheel to turn accidentally .
