Air Arms has unveiled its latest model to appeal to the HFT crowd – it’s the aptly named HFT500 single-shot PCP, the HFT derivative of the S510 series.
The third of Air Arms’ recent PCP releases, the HFT500 wears the same, Minelli-made laminated woodwork colours with which the Sussex gunmaker dresses its FTP900 field target and S510 Ultimate Sporter rifles.
By slightly tweaking the settings arrived at in the design of the S400 and S510 designs, Air Arms have been able to fine-tune the balance between the main valve, hammer and transfer port to achieve a claimed 90-shot return from a 190BAR fill pressure.
It is a competition-biased rifle – but if field shooters can look past the lack of magazine feed, then perhaps with a bipod fitted to the accessory rail, it would also make an excellent choice for taking out long-range quarry.
If you want all the details to help you sell this excellent rifle, check out the comprehensive review in the May edition of Airgun Shooter.
