I am trying to collect only .22 cal wood stock rifles (long gun)- and am doing poorly in that regard.
After examining what I have, including springers: break barrel, under lever, side lever, CO2/HPA, PCP, and a SSP (unfortunately it's a .a77) what I don't have is a multi pump. So can you help me by listing what .22 cal multi-pump wood stock off-the-shelf rifles there are either old or new? To keep the list short, it also needs to be under 500 fps and I realize it may be a tall order.
An Artemis LR700W may be my best option but is it really a multi-pump or a hybrid SSP/multi? - it seems to retain a lot of air.

Back in the 90s you could get a detuned Benjamin 397.
That's the only one that comes to mind.

I know there was a non-PAL crosman 2200 sold in the past (I repaired one for a fellow), but it has a plastic stock. It had the pressure relief valve underneath the main valve. Other than that one, the others I know are either PAL-rated, like the Benji 312, 342, 392 and such, or pistols. There's the Benji HB22 pump pistol with walnut OEM grips but not a rifle.

FYI, I rather easily converted a 2nd variant self-cocker Crosman 760 to .22 cal, it shoots in the 440s with a 14.3 grains pellet. It has a Crosman 1400 6 lands and grooves 18 1/2'' barrel (same length as the OEM smooth bore), a custom brass breech and a steel Oringed hollow-probe bolt with an oversized knurled brass knob. There a Bushnell Sportview 4x32 AO scope atop of it, rock solid on the metal receiver.

Find yourself a first variant wood stock 760 for a one-of-a-kind plinker build :drinkers: .
