Has anyone compared a Air Arms 410 versus a 510 sidelever ?
Besides a very slight, stock weight and length difference, what exactly is the difference?
Please explain!

Only difference I see

December 14 2010, 9:05 AM 

on the Straight Shooter web site is the 510 is 1/4 of an inch shorter, may be due to the fact that the 410 is a thumb hole stock.

On Air Arms web site, they only list the 510 in a carbine model.

I sure would like to know what makes a 510 a 510.

I been looking at that 25 cal 510.

In S. Texas

Only the stock!

And it's about time to make an ambidexterous. Sick and tired of paying extra for LH wood...

Please... NO Ambi stocks!

December 14 2010, 9:48 AM 

Sorry if that sounds selfish but ambi stocks are just plain ugly! An ambi stock is enough to turn me away from any rifle!

I wish manufactures would just invest in producing lefty & righty stocks and skip the ambi stock trend!

Personal Preference!

Please, stop charging me extra $100+ simply because I am lefty! That's 30% of all shooters!
Don't like Ambi, don't buy it!

Unfair to lefties

December 14 2010, 12:03 PM 

The whole practice of charging lefties extra is a major unfair business practice. The ripoff goes something like this ... First, the lefty stock is only available in high-priced walnut, not lesser priced beech or some other wood. Second, even in walnut, the lefty stock is priced at a premium over the righty one!!

Can't even buy an AA Prosport in lefty!! I'm sure that there will be numerous explanations about size of the market, production runs, etc., but as someone who always has to pay hundreds more for a lefty stock and not even get a lefty action, I have little sympathy for the manufacturers.

Where is the justice?

No doubt about it

And the fact is, it does not take more effort, more equipment, more man hours, and more material to make LH stocks, so why the **** they charge SO much more is beyond me. I understand they will not match LH stocks with the number of RH stocks produced. But at least there should be an option to have it if needed. And if there is no option, then there SHOULD be an Ambi stock available instead. There are some shooters turning away from paying extra for no reason and buying something else instead...like AirWolf and AirRanger, HW springers, HW100, Rapids, etc. Great for both, shooters and manufacturers/dealers. Those indifferent who charge extra $100+ for LH stocks can shove that gun up their ***!

Supply and demand

Express your opinions with your purchase decisions.

If enough lefty's don't buy stuff, the manufacturers will assume there is no market and quite making the accommodation entirely. That will fix 'em!

What a boon for the custom stock maker!

Is this free market economy great, or what.

All in good cheer.

I agree with you---free market economy is great.

Lefty premiums, not so much.
