I have been thinking about buying a new air rifle for target practice.
I am looking at a few different models, and would appreciate any info comments.
The ones I am thinking about.
Hatsan 125 TH with scope.
Benjamin Trail NP XL 1500 with scope
Diana Panther 340 N-Tec

My specific thoughts are on quality of rifle and quality of scopes and durability of scoped rifles I have listed.
The Diana rifles are all more money than scoped models. Is this worth it? Should I buy a scope afterwords?
Also don`t really want a load gun, but one with a gas piston for sure as these are supposedly quieter.
Any thoughts? Anyone.
Thank You

To be happy with your purchase over a good period of time, have a close look at the 'better' air rifles
on the market. Too - check out used match rifles. These are rifles designed for accuracy shooting.
Match rifles designed for shooting flat nose pellets, usually shoot between 520fps and 600fps with
560fpr to 580fps being a 'sweet spot' according to what I've been told, by FWB 150 and FWB 300 shooters.
These are the cat's posterior in match rifles for shooting 10 meter match. Here is my old 150 Tyrolean.
In air rifles, you should be looking at German air rifles, whether RWS or Weihrauch. Check out D&L airguns, for ideas.
