Matt Dubber Reviews The Air Arms S410 TDR FAC

In his thorough and in-depth review, Air Arms ambassador Matt Dubber takes us through the Air Arms S410 TDR FAC.

The TDR is an S410 that can be taken apart in seconds and packed into its compact carrying case. The TDR packs down with its scope fixed, so it stays in perfect zero, ready to be assembled in less than 20 seconds to provide that renowned S410 performance. Perfect for those situations where discreet, convenient transportation is required.

After the review we asked Matt a few questions about the S410 TDR FAC.

What are some of your favourite features of the S410 TDR FAC? – The pistol grip, the compact design and the lightweight feel.

What are the major difference between the S410 model and S410 TDR FAC? – The TDR is a take down rifle, which means it is designed to be easily disassembled and packed away in a small carry case

How would the S410 TDR FAC help improve your pest control or hunting? – The TDR’s compact design make it easy to manoeuvre and this allows you to get on target very quickly

What advice would you give to someone who plans on using the S410 TDR FAC? – Make sure you fit a fairly small scope. There’s no point in purchasing a light, compact rifle if you’re going to fit a bulky scope. Keep it simple!

    Very interesting review and largely as a result of it I was prompted to consider and eventually acquire an AA TDR for myself.

    I was very keen to match the rifle with a suitably capable and yet compact scope and eventually settled on the MTC Optics Viper Connect. I have just finished zeroing this combination and was hugely impressed with the performance of both rifle and scope.

    But imagine my disappointment: I have just discovered that the close relief Viper Connect scope sits too far back in its mounts to fit into the TDR’s carrying case. Unless I am prepared to remove the scope every time, I will have to carry the rifle in a conventional rifle slip, thereby losing a major feature/benefit of the take down design. I will just have to find another scope.

    The S410 TDR FAC seems really good but only 20 shots, is there any other rifle that looks like this it does not have to be a break down but has the capability of more than 20
