    The Air Arms FAC Extra one is adjustable...S510.

    My 14 year old Air Arms S410 FAC Extra isn't, but the later ones were I think.

    Air Arms all the way - I would give Daystate a wide berth if I were you - nothing but trouble by all accounts I've heard - even to the point of my local RFD ceasing to supply them.
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    Daystate issues are (anecdotally) magazine feed issues, accuracy and leaking air (seals) - trust me, I would have them otherwise as I'm a serial air gun collector!

    AA can be adjusted in the field but you'll need to do some testing first for POI changes - it may also be that you'll need to change pellet to suit the power setting

    I thought the rapid series were adjustable. Would agree go Air Arms, old daystates were brilliant lots of issues with newer models have heard that several shops now refuse to deal with Daystate. Current prices are beyond belief.

    My limited experience of three rifles...all around 15 or 16 years old...brother in law's AA S410 carbine 12ft lbs would not hold a charge from new and needed to go back to have its seals sorted....been fine ever since.

    My 12ft lb Daystar single shot XLR Extra Light Rifle (just 4lbs lovely little gun) and my FAC extra AA S410 have never put a foot wrong.

    Maybe one should start another thread, but has anybody any experience of using an aftermarket regulator in a PCP?

    Contrary to the OP's wish to vary the power I would rather have it more consistent. My S410 does about 30 shots to a charge. The first 10 are low, the middle ten spot on, and the third lot of ten shots are slightly high.
