Default Classic

You get some good shots with the classic . ( never counted em ) but the first 40 are spot on power wise . you would not do better with regged rifle .plus very accurate . ??? HOLLY

If you're interested in ZOS scopes i recommnend that you buy the 10-40x60mm model.
It's litle bit more expensive but the optics are a litle bit better.

Thanks for the advice but we will probably try to increase the budget a bit more and buy a better known and better rated scope.

Looks like the rifle is now sorted. Have agreed to buy a 400 classic with rowan trigger, hamster, air stripper and adjustable butt pad so that should keep him happy but only leaves about 150 ish only for a scope.

Am I going to struggle to pic something up for that? Possibly stretch to 180 - Any suggestions???

Yeah I was wondering if that would be any good for range finding?
Have enquired about a reduction in price

Ones i've seen have been fine for the money and come with a 6" wheel, a fine scope to get into FT.

It's for my 13 year old lad so I'm pretty sure he will be over the moon with it.

Thanks for the pointers

I have an AA S400 and I have found it to be a really solid and reliable gun even though it is not regulated. I am upgrading now and do not in any way profess to be knowledgable on the different guns but coming from someone who has plinked for years and only got into FT properly last year the S400 gave me a good grounding platform to learn.

I have used a few of the cheaper Air Arms lately and am absolutely amazed how accurate they are for the price. My lad had a 410 so I'm sure he will get on fine with the 400.
Just need to use my bargaining skills on a scope for him now
