Mostly it's just old programming. The idea being that in the old days airguns were considered to be very short range guns. Mostly springers and Co2 in those days, so if you used a scope for shooting 15/20 yards, you needed one that would parallax down to 10/15 yards. It still holds true to some extent today, but since I'm not a plinker, and ninety five percent of my squirrel shooting is done from 40 yards out to 80 yards, I don't need to parallax adjust down to 10. It was kind of funny to see the light go on when I smacked myself in the forehead. As one would expect, it shoots 16 grain JSB's really well, but it also shoots the DYNAMIC tin alloy pellets like a house a fire too. She has a small cheek piece on the left side but a lefty could shoot her no problem.
Beautiful gun and a nice addition to your fine stable of adult air rifles. As I was reading your post I'm thinking why is he worried about focusing down to 10 yards unless he's shooting in the house. I though I've never seen you take a ground squirrel that close. What diet of pellets does she prefer? I like her especially because she has a lefty friendly stock.

I picked it up used for $600. John's right, it is no longer made. The AA 400/410 rifles are outstanding. I've got a used AA 410 CRBSL thumbhole on the way. It should be here Monday or Tuesday. It's the carbine version of the AA 410 ERBSL. Sold off another powder burner and bought another airgun. Man this is just too much fun.
What do one of these run? Where would be the best place to shop?
