Does any one have any reviews or literature on the S400 MPR.
Does any one own one of these rifles? If so, can you give the forum some feedback on the rifle. Pro's and Con's.
Is it worth the price?
Hi Sniper and every1 else...
Have you had a chance to put the s400 MPR through its paces yet??
I am still looking for some more input regarding this Air Arms rifle. I have not read any conclusive/comprehensive reviews regarding the MPR performance yet. How does the MPR compare to the standard s400?
Why should I buy the MPR FT instead of just the s400?
Some back ground - I am very new to FT and would like to get some advice on my first FT rifle purchase.
I need some advice on whether I should go straight to the MPR or just stick to the tried and tested (and certainly proven) s400???
Any advice would be appreciated...
Whatever you buy make damn sure you,ve tried it. Visit a local club and speak to the guys who actually own and live with these rifles, they arent trying to sell you anything.
As to wether to go with the MPR or the standard S400, it,s a case of what you want to do with it. Do you want to shoot H.F.T., F.T. or BR?
I will be using the rifle for FT...
I am just not sure if the price warrants me buying the MPR over the s400...
but I need all the advice I can get on making my first buy!
To be honest .I have not used the MPR in a FT comp.When I tried it for fit at Wonderboom FT club I found it a bit short for my frame size.The MPR I tried had a heavy trigger (very easy to set lighter)
What I do like about the MPR is the thicker barrel.
If you are willing to wait for a MPR to hit the FT arena then I think it would be best to try it out in real shooting conditions before spending the cash.
The adjstable stock does make the MPR that little bit nicer than the S400.Both rifles I feel need a hamster to make them easyer to shoot.
Try before you buy.Has to be the way to go for first time buyer
It's really your choice on this one, as for accuracy they will both be the same, it's the fit that makes the difference.
Either the MPR stock will fit you or it won't, most people complain about the grip size, which seems to have been made with smaller hands in mind.
With FT in mind, adjustability is what you're after, the more the better.
In the end you want the gun to fit you like a glove...
There was no previous MPR-FT.
You are referring to the MPR.This rifle needed modifications to bring it up to FT specs.Speed,barrel and fixed cylinder.
That rifle was intended as a sterter 10m rifle with possibilities to extend its capabilities hence the branding MPR--multipurpose.
The MPR-FT has only recently been released and is new in SA and is a dedicated FT rifle.For the record SA schools have about 1000 of these rifles (MPR)in their programme and are the rifles of choice.They are giving excellent service and are very accurate.
I hope this clears up the confusion.
I’m not sure, but I think Iaan's rifle is just a normal 400 action fitted to the MPR stock, lengthened to to his liking. I shot with Mikes NJR action on a MPR stock, full of weights. Apart from being a bit on the short side I think there was nothing wrong with it. On the accuracy side, it was obviously great as it is a fact that the action is responsible for the accuracy, not the stock. The stock is only there to make the rifle more comfortable for the application. The difference between a "race gun/adjustable stock" and a “sporter/hunter stock.” for FT application. Sh*t, are we never going to get away from this argument?
