Default Air Arms S200

I have an ad in the wanted section for a .177 S200, for my 11 year old son - who's recently taken up HFT.

I imagine these rifles are (like the S400) rather straightforward to maintain, etc but what issues do I need to be wary of when looking to buy second hand ?

What are the pro's and cons with regards to the different versions ? My preference - at the mo' - would be the MK2 but with a target (adjustable) stock.

Any advice gratefully appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Stuart

hi mate

I have the mk2 target version as I can use it, and so can my kids.

The main issues with the S200 is the low shot count (small cylinder) and a rough trigger. The low shot count on the T model can only be overcome by buying a second T cylinder or buying a sporter cylinder and getting it regged - the T cylinder can not be regged.

The trigger can easily be fettled - I suggest you look at my review on the AAOC review section
