very accurate

Yes, they are that accurate, and yes, they will reach 500 fps. I shoot in a winter indoor league and postal league, and at least half of the top shooters are using Baikals.
My friend just received his from Pyramyd Air, after trying mine for a while, and is bragging that his trigger is better than mine...LOL...our club has a couple of high end PCP loaners, including a Hammerli and a Feinwerkbau, and I shoot better with my Baikal. It really likes Vogel orange match pellets.
As for varmint control, I think I would stick with a rifle for that, I think it is apples and oranges. Not saying that a well placed head shot with a .17 cal pellet wouldn't do the trick, I just prefer a bit more impact.
