RI­FLE CHOICE

Airgun World - - Points Of You -

I’m 50-some­thing and af­ter 17 years of search­ing have found some per­mis­sion, since the loss of the fam­ily farm. Fairly new to a PC and YouTube, I watch with much in­ter­est and saw your video on the S510. How do you rate Air Arms next to a BSA, such as the Scor­pion. I’m still us­ing a Mer­cury, and would pre­fer a light car­bine in .22 PCP, but there seems to be so many things to be quizzed over with a po­ten­tial new buy. Are you al­lowed to rec­om­mend any pref­er­ence? I will be vis­it­ing a range in June for some tri­als. DAVE BARNES

David – I’m ‘al­lowed’ to do what I think is right, and in this in­stance I can heartily en­dorse your de­ci­sion to put in some range time. The Air Arms S510 is a fine ri­fle and so is the BSA Scor­pion, and I have both in my col­lec­tion. The fact is, with suit­able pel­lets, both ri­fles will shoot far more ac­cu­rately and con­sis­tently than we will, and your choice is re­ally down to which ri­fle suits you best. Get those ri­fles in your shoul­der and the right one for you should make it­self known. - Ed
