The Air Arms S510 TDR: The Ultimate Compact Sporting Air Rifle, [Music].[Music].you.[Music].so today we’re going to have a look at.the air arms s510 TDR takedown rifle.which is in this very discreet injection.molded plastic security case and inside.there you have everything you need for.day shooting as you can see it’s compact.everything is in there that you need not.only is the case robust so you can check.in the back of your car along with the.rest of your gear and equipment and it’s.not gonna get damaged I just also.discrete so if you’re going shooting and.you want to keep that private this is a.great way of transporting your rifle and.all your equipment without letting on.what you’re doing now as you can see.everything isn’t here in the case their.rifles in two sections a front end with.the action and the pistol grip and the.rear ends with the but there’s also.storage place for pellets.this will bag with the filler adapter.and allen keys and also the N plug for.your barrel if you want to take off your.moderator if you not concerned about.sound or you only really confined space.and you don’t know extreme length now.the rifle itself when it’s been fully.assembled is 1.06 meters and weighs in.about two point eight kilo so it’s quite.a lightweight rifle but still has that.standard rifle dimensions if you’re.shooting an ultimate sporter which the.same action and the weighs in about 3.6.kilos give you an idea this is.significantly lighter comes together.very easily.let’s hit the front end back end as you.can see here there’s three pins on the.butt plate and there’s three receiving.holes on the action slot them together.turn the mill grip at the back which.pulls the butt assembly into the action.and the rifle is now assembled and ready.to go now the rifle won’t fire unless.the butt plate has been fully fitted.into the action so it’s pretty.straightforward and simple to do what.I’m going to do here is there is an.accessory rail on the bottom of the.rifle originally for this bipod.and there we have it nice compact and.lightweight it’s great rifle for all.hunting scenarios in standard versions.some 12 foot pound version but there’s.40 shots in both 177 and t2 if you get a.higher power version which is 20 foot.pounds and 177 and 29 foot pounds in two.two and the shot capacity comes down to.15 which actually four days rabbit.shooting is probably about right but for.most of us 40 shots as it is a pretty.good day out in the field now looking at.the features and functionality starting.from the back isn’t adjustable but pad.I’m a great believer in getting a rifle.to fit you as closely as possible and.using every plane of adjustment to your.advantage the quicker and more.intuitively the rifle comes to the.shoulder the more likely it is your eyes.gonna be aligned behind the scope and.you can acquire that target in there and.the sight picture much easily so just.simple but pad nice soft touch cheek.piece underneath which can store two of.the 10 shot air arms magazines each of.those magazines itself indexing ten shot.magazines two in the stock and then.running the rifle itself gives you 30.shots that haven’t fiddle around and.reloading so to come into the action.itself as you can see it’s air arms s510.side lever action which is one of my.favorites it’s fast indexing it’s very.positive you can feel the lever in the.dark so even if you’re in a barn or.you’re hunting with night vision then.it’s very intuitive to be able to use so.it’s a very fast cycling I’ve never had.any missed feeds with an air arms.magazine or side lever action before so.it’s one of my preferred types of action.for hunting and on top of this we have.an 11 millimeter dovetail scope rail to.that so fitted a hawk air max 4 to 12 by.40 just a little ejected scope which i.think is the ideal skate for this.package at the right level of.magnification it’s also got a TMX.reticle which allows me to pinpoint my.aim points my hold off points underneath.that we have a walnut stock now this has.a pistol grip which I’m pretty big fan.of it allows you a lot of versatility in.terms of how you grab the rifle in terms.of how you hold the rifle your hand.position can change you’re not locked in.by a thumb hole or by an over target.style stock I think the more variation.you have on grip and more closely.fitting your butt that the better and.more instinctively your shoot so as you.move forward from there have a fully.adjustable match.trigger with a built-in safety and of.course it only blocks a trigger the only.way to be entirely safe just make sure.you’ve never point the rifle at anything.you don’t shoot err.and you keep it pointing in their safe.distance at all times so safety is.really down to you.it’s always good to have these barriers.put in place to keep this as safe as.possible we’ve already seen the.accessory rail in the forehand which can.fit a stirred all manner of different.accessories and here I tend to use a.bipod for a rifle this small behind that.we have a built in manometer to let you.know just how much air you have left in.the cylinder moving forward there’s a.395 millimeter Lothar Walther.match-grade barrel one of the things.that Aaron’s always do is puts really.good quality barrels on there eiffel’s.not only is he action consistent but.also the barrel will put the pallet.where you want it so it’s absolutely.vital to make sure that no expense is.spared there that barrel is shrouded.which i think is a really nice touch.nice feel that really solid rugged look.about it and then the air arms son sir.on the end there now this can be removed.as we’ve said before and replace with a.plug at the end but this really does.bring the sound down to almost inaudible.levels so there you have it.lightweight compact maneuverable and.very well put together one of the things.you get with air arms rifles is an.incredible level of engineering and.quality the finish on these rifles.really is second to none added to that.the internal workings and mechanisms you.get from over 30 years of making.precision air rifles means that the.pellets that you fire from this rifle.they’re going to go where you want them.consistently so with that in mind we’re.going to take this bad boy out and have.a look at how she performs in the range.so here we are at the range again with.the air arms s510 TDR.first things first skov you cut into.music obviously what the air arms s510.itself fitted with a hawk four to twelve.by forty max scope we’re going to start.by putting a few shots to it just to get.a settle down I got the action cycling.cookie pass through the barrel from then.we’re going to use the skank Roni to.measure the velocity and the muzzle.energy over the full charge of the rifle.to give us a shot string we’ve got some.hft practice targets at the end we’re.going to do a 10 shot magazine all the.way through and see what group we can.secure it 30 yards I’ll be using our.arms die a blow to – pellets 16 grains.and of course I got a pen and paper it’s.a note down all the velocities and range.data we need to get the rifle charged up.and get the magazines loaded and the air.arms s510 TDR runs off 190 bar bill.pressure which is easily topped up.through this quick release valve at the.end of the cylinder promoting the.magazines on the air arms s410 tdr is.very straightforward uses a standard ten.shot rotary indexing magazine that’s.familiar to all air arms users you open.up this cocking lever pull out the.magazine dropping the pellets and rotate.the cylinder simply slide the magazine.back into the action throw the cocking.lever forward wife was now loaded and.ready to fire.so fired 30 40 shots through the barrel.I’m very happy that it’s grouping.consistently so hopefully the actions.all settled down now.these rifles shoot pretty well out of.the box I know there’s a train of.thought that says you need to let in a.barrel but I’ve just had it 30 yards.down they’re a group that will fit.inside a five pounds piece I’m very.happy that she’s shooting consistently.now I’m going to run her through the.chronograph and see what the shot string.delivers you know what the sweet spot.for this particular rifle is it’s a long.and laborious task but here goes.so I have to say that was pretty.remarkable air arms claim 40 shots per.charge but I’ve just run a hundred shot.string through the TDR firing off three.shots just to get the barrel settled.down get the hammer active chuckling.Warren was 552 feet per second and shot.number 80 was 550 feet per second now.the variance across all 80 shots is 17.feet per second so the highest only had.one 567 that’s a 2.9 percent variance.across 80 shots within that as you’ll.see from the graph there are little.sweet spots here and there so for the.first 30 shots it was around 555 to 557.the next 30 shots in the early 5 60s.late 5 50s but overall I think air arms.have pretty much undersold themselves.here I’m not suggesting that you need to.use all 80 shots but it’s great to know.that if you do have a full day out in.the field that you can expect to have.more than the 40 shots that have been.laid out by the manufacturer but.entirely sure why it’s so different but.it’s a great thing to have in your.arsenal so now that we know you’ve got.plenty of capacity and there’s good shot.to shot consistency within that capacity.now let’s see how it actually performs.out there on the range and see if we can.get some nice tight groups out at 30.meters so couple of magazines loaded and.I’m gonna do 4 10 shot groups now.there’s a little bit of breeze in the.air but these are pretty average wind.conditions I’d say for hunting in the.field so it’ll give you an idea as to.not only the consistency of greet but.also how the pellets handle the wind.so there we have it you know that’s some.pretty good groups for ten shot groups.fired back-to-back each at different.targets first ten shot group here second.third and fourth and as I say it’s not.particularly windy there’s a little bit.of breeze that would have added to some.of this variance but if you imagine that.each of these squares here is 25.millimetres or you know close to an inch.none of these groups have gone outside.edge to edge an inch across so that’s a.pretty consistent shooting there and of.course that’s with me on a bipod with.the back end floating in my hands so if.you’re something a little bit more.stable a little bit more consistent than.imagine these are tighten up by another.10 to 15 mil but that’s not how we shoot.in the field you shoot off bipods we.lean on trees we shoot off sticks so.this thing is a fair representation of.the accuracy that you get out of this.rifle in normal field conditions in.normal wind I think for such a small.compact maneuverable and lightweight.package this is some pretty insane.performance so so well done two air arms.so there we have it the air arms s510.tdr supporter rifle it’s pretty much.everything it professes to be.lightweight maneuverable accurate and.comes in a discreet hardcase but also.it’s not a gimmick it’s not a rifle that.you should have in addition to a sport.rifle the TDRs 510 could be used as your.everyday go to hunting rifle all of the.functions and features you’d expect from.an air rifle from air arms qualities.manufacturing the quality finished.innovation things like the 10 shot Race.Week magazine which we’re all pretty.familiar with side lever action easy to.handle in the dark and cold weather a.good all-around package that performs.well in the field.you. I adore addons, because they are awesome.
