New regulated Arms S510 XS FAC Carbines?

Mon Apr 08, 2019 8:21 am

I posted some questions about the new regulated S510 XS FAC carbines in the technical section but l'm just wondering what the overall consensus was on these as there is not much information available.
l have seen some comments on other forums saying the the new regulator is not very reliable and overly complicated.
Does anyone actually have any experience with these as l'm starting to think that l may need to find something else
Cheers
George

I can't help you directly but suggest you might try some US forums as AA will be selling more in the US than UK. I've seen just two threads (one in AAOC) from people claiming to have an issue with their reg and only one provided data. It did seem that reg wasn't working correctly.

The problem with social media is the amount of hearsay, often with no foundation. Unlike some other makes which have many owners reporting issues there are very few threads started by AA owners other than ones related to servicing and customisations.

Yes, l have not found much information about these at all. l'll check over on the US airgun sites again, but l didn't find a single owner of the new regulated carbines.
l did post on another UK forum and that's where l got told about the potential issues with the regulators and it was suggested l join here.
l was really set on purchasing one of these but the lack of any positive feedback is worrying.

l thought l would provide a quick update.
Basically l went ahead and ordered a regulated S510 XS FAC carbine in .22cal with a walnut stock.
This is dependent on whether the factory has one to ship so fingers crossed.
The local importer here in Australia will confirm within the next few days.
