(for other countries outside the USA check your air gun laws)
(To take an air rifle above 12ft lbs in the u.k is an offence without a f.a.c)

The air rifles on the list are not cheap to buy.

Theoben rapid 7 (mk 1)

A very easy weapon to maintain and tune.

Weihrauch hw 100 mk 1. a very very nice airrifle when tuned.

Air arms s410 (mk 1) a very nice bit of kit.

webley FX2000.

Tuning kits.
i own a daystate harrier x .177 with a harwood thum hole stock.
i also have a wierach hw 97k .22 and a few other guns on a f.a.c
i agree the airgun is the ultimate hunting tool for small animals, (rabbits, squirells ect) you need good understanding a field craft to hunt with one as you are in close proximity with your quarry. its a good way to get tasty free food and rabbits are a top bartering tool.
"ok, squirrels have lovely fluffy tails and can perform clever tricks to nick the food off your bird table. But they are a damn nuisance, there is plenty of them and they happen to be delicious, I say, lets eat them " HFW

if you're going to be dumb, you gotta be tough
