.22 air rifle

thanks again everyone for your opinions. I haven't bought anything yet but I have sure learned a lot doing the research. I did find out that the Crosman rifles do not re-set the safety when reloading so that one is out. I have been looking at the Hatsan's but don't know which ones are gas piston. I have a call in to them to find out. The Gamo is lingering towards the top of the list so far. I'm in no hurry and the search is actually getting to be fun and quite educating.

thanks again

.22 caliber under $150?

Pyramyd Air and Airgun Depot (same owner I believe) have a “reburished” section. Check em out. “More bang for your buck”...excuse the pun.

GTA has a coupon code:

I just ordered the Hatsan 95 .22 spring version fron Pyramid. I wanted something between the .177 springer and CCI Quiets. What sold me is being made in Turkey, and of course that beautiful wood stock, availability of parts, etc.

Should be here in a few days along with a few thousand pellets.

Don't you hate threads like this, where you answer a question, and then end up buying the darn thing yourself

I have a Hatsan 95 spring and a Gamo swarm whisper they both shoot real good. I put some better scope clamps on the 95 a stuck with the stock scope. The Gamo has new clamps and a better scope. The Hatsan shoots tighter groups then the Gamo. Lots of fun for sure. Happy Shooting..JD

Three possibilities, but they are all discontinued ...

For pump pneumatics, Daisy offered a pair, the [B]822[B] and the 22SG. Both are real wood stocked 880 series rifles. China had a bullpup springer named the QB57. All of them .22 bore.
Here is the QB57. Was a take-down, so came in a briefcase.

Resistance is futile.

Sorry about the above suggestion. It is a .177.
For .22 look for a Walther Parrus for $149. AGA ( airgunsof arizona ) still has them in stock in .177 not sure about .22. There should still be a fair number of them out there on the net. HTH

That is an outstanding deal, especially when absolutely NOBODY has these in stock

.22 air rifle

thanks again everyone for your opinions. I'm waiting on the big brown truck to bring me a brand new Gamo Swarm Whisper in .22 caliber with scope. the deal was so good I just couldn't turn it down. just a fuzz under $120 shipped after discounts. I picked up a tin of Gamo 15.4gn Red Fire pellets to break it in with. I want a heavy pellet for sure because the only reason I will have the rifle is to take care of pest. from ground squirrel to raccoons and maybe the occasional ground hog. anyone have a personal best pellet just for hunting?

thanks again

My best advise is call pyramid air. Sometimes they have deals on multiple tins. To get the best accuracy its like rimfire, you need to try couple different ones. They are pretty knowledgeable.

If you buy 4 tins, the cheapest one is free at Pyramid; buy 3 get 1 free.

.22 air rifle

thanks again everyone. I got the rifle and did a VERY good cleaning down the barrel, made sure all the screws were tight and took it out to run a couple mags thru it before mounting the scope. It hits VERY hard and the sound was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. I was impresses after the first shot BUT, it does not re-set the safety when cocking. I spoke with Gamo on two different occasions and was told that the rifle would in fact re-set the safety. This is the reason I went with the Gamo over the Crosman. I will be speaking with Gamo Monday morning and let y'all know how that works out.

and thanks for the tips on pellets.
