I just shot me a rabbit 30 yards away with my Benjamin...
Diana model 48 side-lever .177 cal, Leapers 3-9x50 scope.
You should see what it will do to a paper target.
Mine has a 20% upgrade and will take out a chippie or pigeon without too much effort.
Air Arms S200.
Wow! Times/technology sure have/has changed since I was an air-rifle totin' kid!
Good choice, looks like you have the same scope mounts and rail as I do.
They sure have,
Theres .40 and .50 caliber models using large CO2 cartridge that could kill a deer, and are legal for deer in some states. :eek1
50 Caliber Dragon Slayer
I grew up shooting that same model in the early 70's (I believe it was a model 340). Mine had a blued barrel. I handed it down to my oldest boy. I can't imagine how many rounds I fired with that gun. All three of my boys have air rifles and I'm in the market for another. Some of the modern single stroke rifles are impressive!
Not an air rifle, but a Daisy!
22, and getting to be a collector's item.
Thats a Marlin badged as a daisy. I got one just like it. It was my first rifle. Its got the same markings on the stock.
Go to http://www.airgunsofarizona.com and look at the BSA Ultra rifles. Sweet.
Never bothered to take a picture of my Beeman but it is accurate and hits pretty much everything I point it at.
My kids got my old Benjamin so I had to buy a new one so I bought a Ruger air rifle in the sportsman guide cataloug for 99 bucks . It seems like ten feet long , as out of balance as you can get and heavy , didn't even open the box for the POS scope they sent with it , who needs a scope for a cat getter any way . one thing I did notice , it is a tack driver .

Back in 1997 I brought an Air Arms Pro Sport in .22. AWESOME, not only do they look great it was so well balanced.
before that I had an Air Arms Bora in .177 side lever. traded it on the Pro Sport.
used both on Rats, Rabbits and targets - 1000's of shots on both
I sold the Pro Sport to buy motor bike kit.
Which is best, most accurate, most powerful. noob.
The .22's are better i'd say.
The .177 tend to have more velocity, but not by much. And the .22 caliber rifles have a heavier pellet, and the guns tend to be higher quality. As the .177 market is full of cheaper products.
If all you want to do is shoot tin cans in the yard a .177 is cheaper to shoot, and cheaper to buy, but if you want a quality accurate pellet gun the larger pellets drift less. And I feel like you can shoot them faster accurately, the fast .177's tend to be inaccurate.
I normally do pests with .22 cb rimfire out of a brake action NEF. Its quieter than my pellet guns.
If you get a .20 or .22 you won't have near the same ammo selection as .177.
Also - if you want to shoot competitively, it's all .177.
I have a .22 benjamin pistol, but I wish I would have gotten .177.
177 is cheap and plentiful, fine for pests up to rat size (or better with some of the newer guns), and is cheap and plentiful.
.22 if you are going to hunt with it, .177 for everything else. IMO.
