Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter R Review

Air Arms Ultimate Sporter R Features

The Air Arms Ultimate Sporter R is a regulated version of the acclaimed Ultimate Sporter, it brings a new level of precision and efficiency to the shooting experience.

It is elegantly designed, measuring just over a meter in length and weighing between 3.3 and 3.4 kilos. The choice of stocks – walnut, black soft touch, or a striking laminate – caters to personal preference without compromising on quality. The rifle’s overall build quality is exceptional, with a finish that stands alongside the best in the market.

Introduced in 2018, the regulated action of the Ultimate Sporter R significantly enhances shot count and consistency. In .177 caliber, it delivers around 90 shots, and in .22, about 120 shots. The regulator’s efficiency is evident in every shot, maintaining consistent power regardless of the air remaining in the cylinder.

The adjustable butt pad and cheek piece ensure a perfect shoulder fit and optimal alignment with the scope. The raised dovetail rail provides ample space for scope adjustment, ensuring comfortable eye relief. The checkered pistol grip and stippled forehand enhance the rifle’s handling, making it a joy to shoot.

The two-stage, fully adjustable trigger is a standout feature, offering a crisp and predictable shooting experience. The integrated accessory rail is a thoughtful addition, allowing shooters to customize the rifle with bipods or other accessories.

Air Arms Ultimate Sporter R Accuracy

The side lever action is smooth and reliable, feeding pellets from a 10-shot magazine. The 395mm Lothar Walther barrel is a key contributor to the rifle’s remarkable accuracy. Coupled with the Ultimate Sporter R’s action, it makes for a highly precise shooting tool. The integrated Q-Tec silencer adds to the rifle’s appeal, ensuring quiet operation suitable for various environments.

In testing, the Ultimate Sporter R demonstrated its prowess, achieving tight groupings at 25 meters with remarkable consistency. This level of accuracy, combined with the rifle’s ergonomic design, makes it an excellent choice for both target shooting and hunting.
