I have a Crosman Quest 1000X.
It is a spring action .117 caliber pellet rifle with scope. Mine cost $110.00 with scope.
It is EXTREMELY accurate....and don't scoff at the spring action. At 1000 fps IMO
it is the best bang for the buck. I've shot thousands of round thru mine
and other than a little rust where you hold it to cock the the spring...it is perfect.
And the bonus is that I don't need CO2, nor must I pump it ten times to get a really
high FPS muzzle velocity.
There are more expensive guns with an FPS of 1200 or 1500 but Crosman is a trusted
brand name (even though it was constructed in China)
Generally you'll get 1000 fps for under $i50---1200 fps for $150 to $300---and above 1200
fps, $300 to stupid.
Still though, a .22 cal long rifle is very cheap...as is the ammo.
