Talk to your eye doctor. I have a shooting prescription I got from mine a few years ago after cataract surgery. The SSP Top Focals are ideal.

ISSF and NRA matches are .177 only so I don't think anyone makes match ammo in other calibers. Talk to Field Target shooters to see what they like.

The top choices were Trophy, Citation, and Victor. I like the Victor and had four.

The one experienced bullseye shooters seek out are the custom made High Standards made by Jim Clark Sr.

Any of the three will serve you well.

Ruger has a lot of third party support. tactical Solutions and Volquartsen are probably the front runners. I prefer Volquartsen.

The Scorpion does not have quite the balance and ergonomics of the best competition target pistols, i.e., Hammerli, FWB, Pardini, etc., but it can hang with them for accuracy and reliability.

The 2300T is a nice pist but I think the 2300S or a special order 2300KT might be a better comparison. I like the Diana a bit better out of the box myself.

Very high quality like their match pistols, they made two revolvers around 1972 I think; one called the Dakota and one called the Virginian. I do not know the difference.

Buy ONLY a scope made for air rifles. Springers recoil in BOTH directions and will destroy a regular scope. Check out Hawke.
