    So I have an old as hell crossman pump rifle. Looking to upgrade to a break barrel .22 caliber. Honestly dont want to spend too much on it. But don't want crap. So budget would be $250

    Looking for suggestions!!! Mostly for pest control and target practice.

    Def cheaper than buying a .22 rifle and slapping a can on it. After all the govt and CT law restrictions.

    Thanks in advance

    I bought a break barrel single shot from a traveling tool show for maybe $20 about 20 years ago. It was an accurate, but heavy beast though. The natural rubber seals in the chamber finally gave out and now it’s useles.

    Last one I bought I went to the big box store with the largest selection and bought a mid range priced Crossman. It’s been good the last 8 years or so I’ve had it. 760 model possibly. 5-10 pumps and it’ll do OK.

    Buy a vintage Sheridan Blue Streak. I got mine for $100. (Prices are going up)

    I hit a lizard in the head at 10 Yards. Iron sights. Mine is a .20cal. It’s ridiculous how accurate it is.

    THEN send it to Mac1 Aurguns for his Steriod treatment and peep sight. (I still need to do this).

    I bought a Gamo .17 caliber about 20 years or so ago. Still going strong. It is on its second or third scope--I am too cheap to buy a genuine air rifle scope.

    Too few to list.
    I bought one over the summer and decided on the Crossman F4 classic. For $80 and 1200 FPS, it's great!

    My first choice was a Gamo Whisper Silent Cat but didn't want to spend $150 on one.

    About airgun fps. They use super lightweight pellets to get those numbers.

    Shoot thru a chrono and you’ll be surprised.

    That’s a great pellet out of my PCP.

    I do wish the can lid screwed on like other brands. It opens up in my case sometimes. Good times!!

    Stoeger x20, put on a good scope and replace the trigger. I had my buddy sight it in in his basement and with the right pellets it was shooting 1/2” groups at 45’. Or get a feinwerkbau 300s

    Brandless and at least 17-18 years in my possession. No telling how long the tool show had it before selling it.
