Reply To: Air Arms S500 or S510
You can’t go wrong with either, it’s the same gun depending on if you need a magazine or not.
I happen to be that lucky buyer of Jim’s S500. I was debating between S500 and S510 like you, but looking at the shot strings and 50 yard group photos from Jim, I am sold on his S500. I will mainly use it for backyard plinking, and having the ability to adjust the power on the fly is great. Single shot is no biggie for me.
If you are gonna walk around in the woods to hunt with this rifle, I think having a magazine would be beneficial so you don’t have to carry a tin of pellets around with you all the time.
