Introduction to the Air Arms S410

The Air Arms S410 rightly deserves a place in the ‘airguns hall of fame’, if one were to exist. Though it has been around for several years, a fact borne out by a range that has expanded with new variants, the platform is sturdy, reliable and very effective.

With classic sporting rifle looks and a slick bolt action, the S410 air rifle appeals to traditionalist for whom aesthetics are important. However, it also delivers performance that stands up against just about anything else on the market. The lack of a regulator dates the action, but the efficient design, which has been tweaked and refined over the years, still delivers up to 100 shots in .22.

About Air Arms

Based in south east England and founded in 1983, Air Arms has a long and well-respected reputation. It was one of the early pioneers of modern-day pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifles, introducing its first model in 1988. Today the company produces some of the most respected PCP hunting and competition rifles, as well as class-leading underlever spring-powered rifles.

“it also delivers performance that stands up against just about anything else on the market”

“Though unregulated, the S410 platform has proven itself as reliable and efficient over many years”

“the S410 is designed to look and operate as a hunting rifle in which case the shot count is more than adequate”

S410 Product Range

The S410 range comprises rifle (also known as ‘Classic’) and carbine options. Both have several stock options, a maximum power output of 12 ft. lbs. and share the same bolt action and 10-shot magazine in .177 and .22 calibres. In addition, Air Arms caters for those who prefer the precision of a single shot loader with an S400 model which is available as both a rifle and carbine and are a little lighter than the magazine rifles. The carbine is shorter by 95mm overall and 98.5mm in the barrel and delivers slightly fewer shots as a result. All take a 190-bar fill which is achieved by using a probe that attaches to a valve accessed by removing a cap at the front of the cylinder.

Though unregulated, the S410 platform has proven itself as reliable and efficient over many years. The two-stage trigger is fully adjustable and, paired with a match-grade Walther barrel, is capable of high levels of accuracy. Both the rifle and carbine variants have a manual safety catch located in the trigger blade and are renown for being quiet, especially with a moderator fitted (not standard), making them popular with hunters.

There is very little to criticise about the S410 air rifle series. Being non-regulated, the cylinder design means that shots are limited to a claimed 80 in .177 and 100 in .22 for the rifle and 60/80 for the carbine. That said, the S410 is designed to look and operate as a hunting rifle in which case the shot count is more than adequate.

Air Arms S410 Classic

Also known as the ‘Classic’, the S410 Rifle is offered with several different stock options though all measure 1020mm long with a 493.5mm barrel. At 3.3kgs, the Beech variant is the heaviest. Two Walnut options are available – a traditional stock and thumbhole stock version. Also included in the range are two ‘Superlite’ models in ‘Hunter Green’ and ‘Traditional Brown’. Although they are lighter than the Beech stock, they weigh the same as the Walnut rifles at 2.9kgs. The Superlite models are ambidextrous, however, whilst a left-handed option is available for the Walnut rifle, the Beech and Walnut Thumbhole variants are for right-handed shooters only. The S410 features a 10 shot magazine.

The S400 Rifle caters for those who prefer the precision of a single shot loader rather than a magazine. Although available in the same range of stocks, the S400 Rifle is lighter – three kgs in the Beech stock and 2.7 kgs in the others.

Is the Air Arms S410 Right for me?

Best suited to

The S410 air rifle series are designed firmly with hunters in mind and is the sort of rifle that can be slung over the shoulder and carried with ease all day. The action, though a little dated now, is efficient and extremely reliable. The S410 and S400 are equally at home on the range of FT/HFT course.

Pros and Cons

The S400 and S410 are elegant looking, traditional sporting rifles. They are light and compact and extremely comfortable in the shoulder. With a silencer fitted they are also one of the quietest rifles available. With sidelever becoming increasingly popular, some will view bolt actioned rifles as old-fashioned. As a cylinder rifle, shot count is lower than many other rifles, especially as the S400/S410 range is not regulated.

Other Air Rifles to Consider

The Daystate Huntsman compares to the S410 as a traditionally styled, bolt-action sporting rifle and has the benefit of having a regulated model. Unless it really has to be a bolt-action, take a look also at the sidelever Air Arms S510 and the Weihrauch HW100.
