    Not many shots per charge on carbine and classic is not that long or heavy.

    90 shots from the classic allow you to fill to about 170 bar instead of 190, so you're straight into the sweet spot of the power curve, and have 45 to 50 perfect shots, more than enough for HFT. The carbine only does 60 shots, so a shorter sweet spot. Also, the balance point on the classic is slightly further forward, making standers easier.

    And yet, and yet, the odd thing is, I am getting better results at shooting standing comps with the S410 in carbine length, than with any other rifle I have tried.

    Anybody want to buy an Airwolf in 22 cal?? :mad:
