AirArms S400C
« on: July 06, 2007, 02:35:44 AM »
Well , it finally arrived ! I got my new AirArms S400C after waiting over two months  for it to come in. And IMO the wait was worth it . It is by far the nicest looking air gun I've owned so far. (pics. to come later)  I have a match Sunday and wanted of course to shoot my new gun then, but my fill equipment will be here this afternoon and because of a death in my wife's family yesterday , this morning is the only time I'll have to sight it in. I noticed the gauge on the gun said it had 115 bar of air and thought I can at least get it on paper . So I scoped her and went out side and shot. It only took about ten shots to get  me centered and wow does it shoot nice . Most likely the nicest shooting airgun I've shot and definitely owned . It's not quiet , but it's not too loud either . It's no louder than my tuned QB78 and so far haven't had any problems with the neighbors . I think my Talon SS will be taking a back seat to this one. kirby

Wow Kirby I am jealous hehe. Steve Corcharan owns a AA S410 and an S200. When he brought his S410 to my house for the first shootout we had here in N. Texas I fell in love with that gun and decided if I ever get into the PCP guns that one will be the first one I will get hehe. Cant beat them L/W barrels for accuracy oh and did I mention that with a little holdover those silly AA's will shoot out to around 150 yards accurately? Thats just ridiculous man hehe.

Congratulations David on a fine choice in air guns.
Those things shoot really well. Like John, if I had to go PCP, this would be my weapon
of choice.

Thanks Guys ; I finally got  to shoot my new rifle today in a couple of field target matches. After a hurried 10-12 pellets  final sight-in at the  range ( trying to beat the rain) I shot  a 20 target hunter course and shot a 13 ; my personal best so far . Then the rain picked up, off and on and we had cut the regular match to 20 targets instead of the normal 40   and I only shot an 8 but I think by that time , I was more concerned with keeping my new gun dry.  I started to just quit a couple of times and go back to the truck.That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I like the gun a lot. As much as the Talon was eayr to shoot well , this one shoots better, and the stock fits like a glove. kirby

Good shooting David, Well I'm pretty anal when it come to my "stuff"
Guns included, I don't like getting them too wet either. Specially when
they are new and expensive.

Yea, I had a nylon ripstop jacket I carried and when I wasn't shooting I covered it up . And when I home I pulled the action out and oiled everything that could have been exposed that even looked like it could possibly rust. I'll try to get a picture posted tomorrow.kirby

David,
Congratulations.

I have never seen one of those, or if I have then I did not know what it was.
It sure is nice looking, and sounds like it shoots great.

What are you going to buy next?
Hmm, I guess that also means what are you selling next also.
hehe

Now let's see. I just sold my Beeman R7, My QB78 , and a CZ 452 FS .22cal. powder burner and  have two more powder burners at the gun shop on consignment. And I have on order one of these  http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k171/kirby001/MPR003a.jpg . An Air Arms S400 MPR .  . I've decided I've rather have fewer but nicer airguns .  One day I want to get a nice 10 meter pistol and that should do me. kirby

Ok so I am not up on all in the AirGun world but is that a free rifle or?
It sure looks good from the pictures.
So when will we see it in your collection?
Have fun with those.

I wish ; Cost me about 3-4  gun sells hehe     Should be shipped next  Monday .   Oh,I get it , it took a minute Gordon ,The type of rifle; I'm a little slow tonight.  The rifle is a 10 meter as produced . But the Dealer is going to up the power on it to 12 ftlbs so I can shoot field target with it. They usually come at about 5-6 ftlbs . They also make this in a dedicated  F/T model but it would cost me another $4-$500 but would be more powerful at 16 ftlbs . Mine should shoot  at around 800+ fps with a 8.3g pellets for about 40-50 shots before having to refill with air. kirby

Free, free, free??  You really shouldn't give me that new AA400C for free, but it's ok....just this once I'll take it.  You're such a nice airgun bud!

Those are sure some nice ones for the collection, bet they shoot as good as they look.
