I can refer you to the fully qualified RFD and AA-tuner who did it if you want. I also spoke to one of the countrys leading PCP tuners (wont name him here) and although he did not work on my gun he also suggested not regging the S410 as a first step and strongly encouraged me to go down the non-regged route. The chap who diod mine has been fully AA trained and does a lot for those on the AGF. I'd be happy to PM you his details and you can chat to him directly. Please note, the performance my gun now gives me matches that posted on here and is superior to some discussions on here from some time ago. I only lose a few shots at the top end of the curve, but I still get around 70 shots - well happy with that and not a regulator in sight.
Are you doing all this yourself? I have a feeling that you are missing the fun of owning one of these great airrifles
No mate, never touch them myself and I'd rather be out in the fields and woods with a unit I know has been looked after by people that know what they are doing.
My only point is a simple one. For the AAS410, I dont feel the argument for a regulator is always well made and other options should be considered first. If those other options dont give you the performance you need, then fair enough, reg it but now you have evidence that this might be the only route. As you say, they are easy to work on - which is an argument for going down the non-regged route first. Both my S410K and S410 Classic give me 3fps variation in the sweet spot for 70 and 85 shots respectively. No regulator data I have ever seen beats that variation for these rifles. Yes I could squeeze more shots, for more expense and fitting units that can fail - but this performance is all I need for my hunting.
PS - there is no messing about with sweetspots once you know what to fill to and what to stop at - simples.
Happy new year to you as well mate!
