    Looking to invest in a .22 Break Barrel NP for pests,..specifically feral cats, mongoose, and chickens. My .177 isn’t strong enough for the size of pests at the range I’m shooting at (15 to 35 yards). Quieter gun is preferred and budget is up to $250. Suggestions are appreciated.

    Sorry, I should have clarified: Nitro Piston or Gas Spring air rifle.

    Welcome to THR.

    Hatsan frequently gets the value for money not these days. Apparently their FPS numbers are given for lead pellets rather than the lighter, faster PB pellets.

    Pyramid Air has a lot of reviews and is good about listing features, so a good look through their options may help make a decision.

    I own this rifle ( link provided ) and the XS25 bamboo shown in video They are absolutely amazing shooters. Probably the best rifles made for a great price. You can't go wrong with either one. Mike sells a amazing product. This rifle is modeled after the RWS34. And if Mike tunes it for you will get a rifle that need no break in period. In my opinion the best rifles for the least amount of money. You absolutely have to check these out.

    If you absolutely must have a gas ram break barrel air guns of Arizona is running a special on the Diana 340 ntec. Personally I have found fixed barrel guns easier to shoot accurately and I also think gas rams over rated. Spend whatever it takes for quality and practice,practice,practice. Cheap springers and instant gratification syndrome have soured a lot of shooters on AG’s. Good luck with whatever you choose.

    No expert here by any means. Got a Benjamin Trail .22 cal. break barrel with the Nitro Piston 2 gas system a few years ago. For what I need it works good and has taken squirrels at 20-25 yds. Have chronographed various pellets out of it at speeds from an average of 736 fps to 832 fps depending on pellet weight and design. It's not a high end air gun and I have no other air gun experience to compare it with. But for occasional use it keeps me happy.

    What do you consider a cheap Springer?
    Name the brands your referring to.
