    Default What comes in the box?

    I am looking to buy a reasonably price PCP and have a few questions that my fellow forumites may be able answer. If I buy an AA S400 classic what exactly comes in the box? Do I have to buy as extras a whole bunch of other bits? And what exactly is the S400 Custom? I didn't find a wealth of information on the Air Arms site.

    allen keys?

    you get the local custom and uk custom.

    the local version as seen in magnum, uk one, comes with a fancy walnut sporter stock, otherwise the same as updated s400.

    There isn't even a mention of the MPR version of the S400. The Custom version has an adjustable cheek plate.

    Having seen pics of the S400 MPR, in addition to the butt, it has a bracket over the barrel and cylinder, match trigger, and is fitted with diopter sights. It is said that this rifle has been adopted as the main training rifle for the American National Rifle Association.

    Next time I speak to Mike I'll ask him about the MPR, it's built off the S400 action, by the looks of it it's not regulated and has a sort of S200 and Pro-T combination stock.
    Trigger still looks like stock S400 but is a little more adjustable with a adjustable trigger blade.
    It will prove to be a favourite in both the precision and FT market !
    When .... hopefully not as long as the EV2 :-)

    The Multi Purpose Rifle seems an AA400 fitted by Top Guns (american company). Not unlike Logun is a rebadged FX in the UK. There is also a Senior version of the AA400. The 400MPR sells in the US from $530. They showed it fitted with diopter sights.

    MPR is a S400 tuned down to 580 ft/s fitted to a new precision stock. Can be done in Sporter as well as full precision versions. Removable cylinder made from aluminium. The rifle is wholly made by AA. The stock will also be a winner for FT with the normal S400 action. Trigger is standard three shear AA or Anshuetz match. There are a few available in SA.

    Not as far as I know. From what I understood it is not a concept rifle any more, but the real thing. I think it is more a case of getting enough interest as to manufacture this rifle in volume.
