I'm newish to airguns but they're piling up quickly...

Started a few months ago with a Stoeger X3 .177 that's been tuned to about 5.5 fpe.

Then I bought a 1322 that's been modded and converted to a carbine. It currently shoots almost 10fpe with the stock barrel, way more parts on the way. Stacks pellets at 20 yards, but the pumping's a little much for plinking.

Lastly I picked up a non-PAL Crosman Shockwave NP since it was so cheap. Its shooting about 10 fpe right now, with a stronger gas spring on the way. Looking forward to testing it out around 15 fpe.

Looking for one more project before the weather warms up. Nothing too pricey since this was supposed me my "cheap" hobby. Suggestions?

Stoeger X3 .177, UTG 3-9x40 - 5.5 fpe
Crosman Shockwave NP .22, Hawke Airmax 4-12x40 - 16 fpe
Pumper Project .22, Centrepoint 4-16x40 - 13 fpe

You could do a 2240 mod if you like tinkering. I have just gone down that path as I also could not face the pumping idea of the 1322 (though I might yet try it one day).
I converted it to .177, put a scope on and am now fiddling about with velocity vs shot count. Didn't cost too much and I am pleased with the outcome so far.
