So, I’ve got $600 to spend no more, all in. Looking for a rifle. It could be a spring gun, pcp, or pneumatic (no co2). I already have a scope and mount so iron sights or no sights works either way.

Ideally it will be used in the basement at 35ft, and the backyard (no neighbors so pal rated is ok) So adjustable power would be a bonus as I don’t want to shoot a magnum in my basement. No hunting, just plinking, paper targets.

Ideas? Please... I know if I stretched the budget I could get that super duper gun just out of my reach but I’m not spending more than $600 this time around. $601 maybe, $602 no way - boss has spoken.

Thanks in advance for your ideas gents!

considering what is in your sig, I would put the money away until you get another $600 and buy something like a fx streamline. accurate, effecient, light, power wheel. A new optic perhaps.

Looks like you already have some pretty great guns, so what is your biggest wants in it? I'm guessing if you are going to spend $600 but will only be target shooting you are mainly looking for accuracy.
The Umarex Gauntlet is getting pretty good reviews in the US, and is supposed to be released in April in Canada if you are willing to wait that long. It is a good target style gun that gets tons of shots and is being reported in most cases to be really accurate.
I've got a lightweight pcp in 177 that I'm going to be selling that gets around 30 good shots on a fill and is very quiet, shooting around 900fps with 7.4gr pellets.
I'm just waiting for some jsb pellets to come on the mail to check accuracy at longer ranges before I sell it. Don't want to give someone a lemon, lol.
Here is a picture. It'll be in the $200 range.
Multishot with 9 shot magazine and single shot tray. Not a fancy gun like your air arms so you might not be interested at all. [emoji846] Fairly easy to adjust power anyway, just one bolt to take off the stock and another to swap out the hammer spring for a lighter one for indoor shooting. I can even throw in the lighter spring for swapping [emoji4]
Anyway another option. Lots of options at that price, depending what you want. Looks like you have pcp guns already so you won't need to buy fill equipment anyway, if you go the pcp route! ImageImage

Thanks guys...

I’d love to hang onto the money and add to the pot down the road but I suspect this is my opportunity and if I don’t seize it, that money will end up going to something else not so fun if you know what I mean.

Wesb2007 what is that gun? Looks kinda like a Crosman 1701p pistol with some alterations, but I don’t think that’s it.. could be an option for me.

Good choice !!!! Image
Pretty sure this will just fall into your budget too. Might be hard to fine a regulated rifle for under your budget.
Definitely worth the wait IMHO.

It's a Varmint and CP2 crossbreed Lego gun, lol, one I built myself from parts.
Basically the Varmint with the synthetic stock of the CP2. Very light weight and amazingly quiet! I've done a bstaley oring mod for efficiency and with the 3000psi fill pressure it takes hardly any air to get those 7.4gr to 900fps [emoji846]. I sent you a pm if you are interested.
Here is a picture of the original Varmint/Pr900w, unfortunately not available yet in Canada, but probably will also eventually be available under the name of the Diana Storm Rider
(oops posted the wrong pic! Here is the right one)

Unless you already have a PCP, for your budget, I don't think I'd go there... the pump or tank would eat too much of your rifle $$

My vote would go toward
Diana 430

Daisy Avanti

I’ve got several pcp guns already so no need to cut into the budget with filling equipment. Not bad suggestions...

Airgunsource and DL Airgun 'should' have the Diana

-

And I know you said you didn't want to go over budget... but you're just a few $20 bills away from a Air Arms TX200 :bear:

Which is the airgun to beat in FT Spring-Piston

I second that recommendation, HW97 is a really nice rifle often compared and contrasted with the TX200.
The 97 would be right at home in your gun cabinet and it's quite different than the 57.

There is a Hw97 synthetic in the for sale section that the seller says lives up to the accuracy reputation.
