    Default Air Arms S400 Carbine - Power

    Recently at a dealer I was shown a small screw on the side of an Air Arms S400 Carbine. According to the dealer this screw can be adjusted to increase the power to about 14 ft\lbs.

    Does anyone know about this, is it correct etc? I have found no other refence to this on the NET, reason I am asking.

    yes it can be adjusted by that screw, but it's intended for fine tuning not gains in ftlbs like from sub 12 to 14ftlbs.

    ask the dealer to prove it to you

    yes the screw will alter power,the most power will come from altering the firing pod aswell

    mr. tuner,
    The only legal limits in this country are a smaller calibre than .22. You could push the power up to what ever as long as the rifle is not a .22 or bigger, you donít need a licence. Hunting with air rifle is also illegal in South Africa. My honest opinion is that the fact that we tune our air rifles to shoot at such high velocities, as you describe, is going to be the exact reason why we are going to have our rifles controlled again, by licencing them. The UK rules are much better and safer, 12Ft/lb. or lower, or get a FAC.
