I have just purchased the above in walnut .
The question is what does the F stand for ? Is this just the reference to the latest model ?
I know it sounds stupid but I am worried I have the superlite action in walnut.
Has any one got any pictures of the latest 410 in carbine and also pictures of the superlite , to put my mind at rest.
Here's my guess.
The Superlights are models in their own right within the 400/410 range. Here's the page from BAR.
Two models. Deluxe with what looks like the stocks made from Poplar, and classic. I wouldn't be upset if my stock was in Walnut.
EDIT: The Pellpax site clears it up a bit. There are three stocks available in the Superlight series.
Deluxe- Shiny two tone finish, made from Poplar.
Hunter- Green matte finish, Poplar,
Traditional- Brown wood (!), looks like Beech but could be Poplar with a finish applied ?

There are two models, looking at the BAR link, so it may be that the OP does have the correct stock, just not the nasty shiny one?
In the good 'ol days it was always a selling point that walnut weighs less than beech. Never seems to get a mention these days.
I've asked a few times for someone to put up the weight of a superlight stock, AA's also, but no response. It actually needs someoene to weigh one rather than go with the maker's figures.
FWIW. My Walnut AA's with one QD stud, weighs 2lb 7oz.
This combination including stock and action weighs in at exactly 6lbs. / 2kgs 700 gms
Having spoken to an Airarms adviser today , I can confirm they have advised me that the F incorporated on the side of the action refers to the latest and upgraded action and not particularly connected to the superlite series.
Interesting...so what's new in the F action then I wonder?
AA S408K .177
Well to start with cosmetically the filler cap / and the bolt handle are fluted ,and the logo is bolder.
Also where the barrell is connected to the breech block they have fitted a follow on fluted slip which smartens things up a bit.
As for the internals I was told certain mods or upgrades have been made but the spokesperson wouldnt elaborate.
The bolt certainly feels smoother and the gun feels a tad lighter in comparison to my older version but that could be just me thinking so.
a hands on preview of the new F
half way through' ...........
Enjoyed that , and I can say the gun is as good as he says it is ,
And the trigger doesn't flap around on the F'in' new range
Toilet trained since March
the triggers also got crinkle washers in it instead of o rings. it's supposed to feel a lot crisper. the triggers do need a serious upgrade. i have a mpr. the triggers perfectly usable and adjustable. i just cant quite get it to break as cleanly as my hw100's trigger. the hw100's trigger is still at the factory setting which is perfect imo.
the mpr is a great gun, but would be a lot better if i could sort the little niggle i have with the trigger. ive spent ages trying to tweak it. ive got it working good, but not perfect. besides this the mpr is a fantastic gun. very accurate. the 40 series represents proper value for money. it'l shoot just as well as any other gun out there. even my lads s200 is as accurate as my mpr and hw100.
